“OLD SYTLE ITALIAN FOOD --TOO HEAVY TODAY”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Convenient to Hawthorne Suites. Nice but bland decor. Old style Italian menu plus many specials where chef overworked. Even simple disk like veal saltimboco was drenched in thick Madeira sauce. Staff uniforms exceptional BUT host/OWNER wandering around in silk shirt & jeans--surely expensive & really inappropriate. I'd say place drifts where it could sail with good captain.

The food was excellent and service was outstanding. Based on portion size, it is one of the best values in Naples!

“Wow! This is a great find!”

A group of 10 of our friends from our car club recently dined at Sophia's. Our server, Camille, was wonderful never missing a beat. Lynn and I both had the veal piccata which was wonderful. This is an upscale restaurant with decent prices for the quality! We sat outside. The deck was covered and it was quite nice eating out under the stars on a comfortable Florida night.

We stayed at the nearby Best Western and walked to this restaurant. The title of this review says it all.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Sophia's is a classic Italian restaurant with all of the service and care one comes to expect from a top notch restaurant.
The meals form the kids menu were served in advance of the adult meals - a great strategy that allowed for smooth pacing of the meal.
The wine selection was great and the server was able to provide excellent descriptions of their offerings.
I had the shrimp scampi which was cooked to perfection - not too oily and just the right amount of garlic. The serving size was on the large side, but not over the top as one sees so often with pasta dishes.
We split pastries as a desert and they were great as well.
As the meal concluded, the owner stopped by to check in, making sure we had a good meal and asking how we were. A classy touch for sure.
