Description: Soffritto Italian Grill is an authentic family-owned Italian restaurant located at 1130 Capitol Trail in Newark, DE. Since we opened our doors in 2005, Soffritto’s wealth of experience and exquisite dishes have brought them great recognition and acclaim locally, as well as internationally.To fully enjoy their experience at Soffritto Italian Grill, our guests dine in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere that creates an ambience of a home away from home. Our Tuscan stone and stucco exterior along with our wood burning fireplace welcome guests into the restaurant. Murmurs from our waterfall and authentic Italian music coupled with the delicious aromas of our award-winning Italian cuisine provide a sense of comfort during their stay. Soffritto’s name derives from the very thing that is most important to us: food. Soffritto comes from the Italian verb soffriggere, which means to brown or fry slightly. Many Italian recipes begin with a soffritto, a lightly fried mixture of onions, celery, and carrot, sautéed in olive oil, thus imparting their flavors to any ingredient that follows. Soffritto prides itself on its innovative family recipes and passion that goes into every individual dish. They believe the key to high quality food begins with a commitment to only the freshest of ingredients, and ensure that every ingredient is hand-picked by our experienced chefs.From traditional coastal Italian dishes to new and inspired flavors, Soffritto aims at meeting every customers needs and desires. Every dish is prepared to order, with an emphasis on taste and presentation. We are notorious for our homemade ingredients, including fresh homemade mozzarella, focaccia bread, linguini, and gnocchi. Soffritto receives great acclaim for their acute awareness to different customers’ dining preferences, including our gluten-free menu and abundance of vegetarian alternatives. We strive for quality and distinction. At Soffritto, you will find an attentive and professional staff who puts the customers’ needs first. Whether you choose to come to Soffritto for a birthday, a romantic getaway, a business meeting, or just to catch up with friends, our staff will provide you with the utmost level of professional service and courtesy.Our staff has a reputation for their energy, skill, and passion.

An attractive restaurant. Enjoyed a great lunch, good service with large portions and nice complimentary salads with an entree. Several in our group enjoyed the pasta, several enjoyed chicken dishes. Wine available by the glass. Second time there and definitely will be back.

My wife and I had dinner last night at Soffrittos. Dining room is nicely decorated and was quiet even for a Monday night. Servers were friendly and helpful. Food was a good value with large servings and moderate prices. (We had a large lunch today from the leftovers.) House Chianti was good. Veal Parm was a little disappointing; large portion with good flavor and thin breading, but the meat was very thin. I would rather have had fewer, thicker pieces of veal. “Insalata Caprese” with homemade mozzarella was very good. This was our first visit and we plan to return.

You will not be disappointed! Excellent Italian dishes, seafood selections and more that are as attractively prepared as they are delicious. Order one of the fresh fish options and they will filet your choice right at the table. Friendly service with a wide variety of tempting dishes. The ambiance is warm and cozy. The owner is a delight and makes nightly rounds to check in with guests.

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic meal with close friends a couple of weeks ago at Soffritto's! We were able to sit and enjoy ourselves without feeling rushed, allowing us to enjoy the food and wine from appetizers to dessert! Our waitress was great and the owner visited our table as well. My husband loved the clams over linguine and I thought my veal special (scallopini?) was incredible! Definately worth the trip!

We always go to Soffritto's for any special occasion. Why, because it is a dining experience every time we go. The staff is excellent and very well trained. The owner Giovanni, is always there, stopping by the tables welcoming everyone to his pride and joy. However the real reason to visit is the food. Always fresh, plentiful and delicious. Lots of good reasons to put Soffritto's on your list of places to go when you are in Newark, Delaware
