I find this place very difficult to classify. The food is usually decent but not outstanding. Sometimes it comes in reasonable time and sometimes service is slow. Sometimes the greeting is warm and the service good, and sometimes not. The walls are lined with pictures of Italy but the place feels a bit jaded. Having said all that, it does... More

As background, we have spent over a year of vacation in Italy. The tenets of simple ingredients being treated with respect were in clear evidence at this Hudson tratoria. We have driven by over the years and finally stopped in. No regrets at all. For us, the food rules, great service is a huge plus and decor takes a back... More

Very small and cozy restaurant. It appears that the owner, who is from Italy is also the chef. his wife is usually the hostess/waitress when we are there. Homemade pasta dishes are great. Good wines by the glass and great bread before the meal. Pricey for Hudson, but has the feeling of a North End without the hassle of traveling... More

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

We had a nice family dinner June 29th of June. We had a warm welcome and was quickly seated. Staff was friendly, and the both drinks and bread was fast on the table. 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
