Strangely the place was only half full on the night. Food was excellent and prices were reasonable. An enjoyable night.

We came here with our two children (13 & 10), and everyone had a very good meal! The scampi al forno was excellent, and the pasta was very well prepared al-dente. The Turbot and Branzino were excellent, and the lamb chops were good if not spectacular. The deserts were fantastic, don't miss the panacotta.

Excellent authentic Italian food. Owner appreciated my very poor attempt at Italian. A little gem hidden down a side street that could be easily overlooked. There are views over the river depending where you sit too

Love, love, love this place! Another wonderful meal in the best of surroundings. Beautiful perfectly cooked steaks with interesting and tasty sides. A fine wine, selected for us by Claudio was the finishing touch on perfect night. The view from the restaurant was beautiful during our evening. Our thanks to all.

My wife and I visited the city yesterday, we looked for an Italian restaurant on Google to have an evening meal. We picked La Sosta and we were not disappointed.

Went for dinner with family, lamb was tiny portion, annoyed when I seen family members steaks which I wish I had ordered. Not enough sides for 11 people... Good atmosphere though. Waiting staff didn't seem to know what was going on but I'm putting that down to being a large group and you can't remember who ordered what.

La Sosta presents several elements I didn't encounter in other restaurants during my stay in Derry: a nice view, good music and an elegant setting. The £21 turbot was well cooked, nothing amazing but served with an overwhelming amount of sides. So it's good value. The owner who comes from the Pescara region was very nice and I'd like to...
