I found it interesting how many people raved about the food, which I found decent, but certainly not the best Italian I've ever had, including not rivaling some of the best North End restaurants. I had their large homemade ravioli, which was good, but not al dente and a bit towards the mushy side. It was nicely seasoned and the... More

Main course was 4 dishes of pasta and 1 veal. Service was quick and food was excellent. For dessert lemon cake that was a litle dispointing (to... More

The decor is dated but the food here is excellent. They make their own handmade pasta and it feels just like the quality you'd get in Italy. I'm pretty sure the owners are from Italy. I was very impressed by the quality of the homemade pasta.

We first discovered Sofia's a few years ago because I had a Restaurant.com gift certificate. We have continued coming ever since even though we live a fair distance away. Sofia's is a family owned and operated establishment and they take great pride in delivering a high quality restaurant experience to their guests. My favorite dish is a house made seasonal... More

We recently visited Sofia Ristorante again after a couple of years. It was great again!. We were a group of 5 and called ahead just in case. They have parking right behind the building which is very convenient. The people are very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was a little bright with the overhead lights but still cozy. We had... More

Restaurant's name is "Sofia Ristorante", not Sophia... Honest! Just click on the website and you can see the name at the top or check on google/maps - just trying to avoid confusion. Restaurant was not crowded at lunchtime. Owner's wife is a doll and made sure we were well taken care of. Pasta was good with a very nice red... More

Sophia's serves the best Italian food I've ever eaten. Full stop. Try the duck salad, or any of the freshest sea-food they serve.

I've probably been here 8 times in the last year. Calm, quiet, nicely decorated . . . perfect atmosphere for a long, leisurely dinner. Waitstaff (frequently the owner and/or his lovely wife) are charming, attentive but not intrusive. So . . . chicken and veal parm are good size and perfect. I usually get large shrimp w/tomato & white wine... More
