Went with family for a birthday treat. Balloons and streamers waiting for us on table. Service and attention could not be bettered and the food was excellent, obviously prepared and cooked fresh as we altered some of the menu options. Atmosphere great. Pleaseantly surprised at the size of the bill. Only adverse comment is that the booths are a bit... More

My son recommended Sophia's as he has visited on numerous occasions, we were not disappointed. We were greeted with a warm welcome, service amazing and food was exceptional . The friendly atmosphere was chilled and full of banter you really can't go wrong for a romantic night or family gathering . Will return without a doubt . Thank you

Always find Sophia very small and cosy... a bit too cosy for a lot of people. More of a couples restaurant- cannot fault the food

My husband wished to dine out on his birthday and we wanted to find somewhere close to home. We chose Sophia's because of excellent reviews and we were so glad we did. Our meals were excellent and great value for money. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service we were given. We shall definitely return before long.

Visited Sophia's as part of our grandson's birthday celebrations and I am happy to report that while the world is changing all around us, Sophia's remains constant, simply wonderful. John, the owner, was having a (well-deserved) night off but we were well looked after by his affable, well-trained staff. The Mushrooms alla Sophia were a delight and the various main... More

This restaurant is definitely the quickest one I have ever been to, we were in and out of the place in a flash even though it was busy. Staff do not like you having to sit and wait which I adored. Food was tasty, traditional Italian meals. Big portions and the staff were lovely, they even hung my coat up... More

The food was amazing best I have ever eaten!! the decor is a bit old could do with touch up but I'm not complaining. I noticed across from where was sitting... More

Took ages to get served for a drink and the food when it... More
