As a University of Delaware parent coming from New York I do not get many opportunities to make the trip down to visit with my daughter. When I am able to however, we like to be able to sit down and take our time at dinner to talk and catch up. Soffritto is the only place in Newark where we don't feel rushed to finish our meal. The comfortable and relaxed atmosphere is like enjoying a meal at my own kitchen table - a home away from home. The moment we walked through the door, we received a warm welcome from the hostess. The service was above and beyond what most other comparable restaurants in the area offer. I ordered the Linguini Pescatore in a spicy red sauce which was phenomenal. My daughter had the Homemade Cannelloni, which was one of the specials of the evening. Both dishes were fresh and cooked to order. My daughter is allergic to tomatoes, so we kindly asked to leave any tomatoes off her dish; the server was very understanding and accommodating! We has anticipated taking home leftovers but ended up finishing every last bite. Don't waste your time on Main Street at a lower quality restaurant and instead travel only a couple more minutes down the road to an AUTHENTIC Italian restaurant! If only there were a Soffritto nearby in NY! We will definitely be back.
