Great food, friendly service. They didn't have a table right away but told us there was only a 15 min wait. Offered us drinks while we waited. Food tastes amazing, took a while to be served but made up for it it in flavor. Tiramisu was fantastic.

We decided at the last minute to go out, and this place had space. The food was good, the menu was well translated in English, and the service was attentive, even with a full restaurant.

We visited in June on a whim - Sofia's caught our attention as we were walking by. We were lucky enough to have the owners personally serve us and they were very friendly and took great care of us. We had the gamberoni in kataifi that was fabulous, I wish we had ordered two. The pasta dishes were perfectly portioned... More

Put Sofia on your list of places for dinner when you are near the Piazza di Spagna ... or maybe even when you are not even close. It's run by a young couple who clearly care about their guests and who provide a modest, but near perfect meal. There's nothing fancy here except for people who apparently love what the... More

Sophia restaurants is very welcoming and great looking. The menu includes all kinds of pasta so as a great Rissoto And Romanian Italian dishes with a modern twist. The portions are not too big but the taste is great. So if you look for a nice restaurant for lunch you should defiantly check it out.

We stumbled across Sofias quite by accident whilst exploring the streets near the Spanish Steps and we're so happy we did. The lady who first served us spoke great English and showed us to a table on the street - we requested we'd like to dine outdoors. The service was superb. The food fantastic. I started with a 'Beef carpaccio... More

This restaurant was one of the best dining experiences we had in Italy! The service, atmosphere and most importantly the food, was excellent. My husband had stuffed squid and it was delicious! I had the citrus risotto, it was also excellent. The tiramisu was creamy and flavourful and the wine they recommended was great! The staff was gracious and cared... More

Strozzapretti pasta was good but a little dry of sauce. Chicory was divine. Organic bio dynamic wines were delectable. They should pour you a bit more by the glass. The table next to me was getting much more wine in their glass. They also charge for focaccia and do not tell you. They ask if you want bread! Of course... More

Dear Madame, thank you for your review! We're happy that you enjoy your dinner at Sofia. I would like just to inform that our Chef, Tea Cianci, is an Italian girl (from Puglia) and the people you could see from your table, were the dishwasher and an assistant cook. Thank you very much and see you next time in Rome.... More

Description
Sofia is our pet dog and mascot,…. a friendly and loving Jack Russell who accompanies us in our adventures. This is why we decided to give our most precious project her name!

An intimate, family-run restaurant with very few rules of thumb:

a menu which respects the seasons, using the finest of Italian produce, always fresh every day;
traditional Italian recipes together with other dishes specially created by our chef, and inspired by the flavours and colours of Mediterranean cuisine;
our desire that your lunch or dinner take place in intimate surroundings and make you “feel at home”.
