    The food was spot on. Drinks were excellent. Service was great considering it was White Linen Night. It always a bit loud in there but it was a lively crowd. The only downside was the incredibly long line for the bathrooms. Otherwise, kudos.

    The food was delicious. We ate here twice during our stay because we enjoyed it so much. Service was slow the first time, much better the second. Nice atmosphere, a tad loud, but that goes for most of the restaurants in NOLA.

    The cacio e pepe was a classic, followed by Chef Talia's pizza margherita with added small aromatic mushrooms - all balanced with a glass of a mano primitivo and terrific service by Lily and the kitchen!

    Food was delicious. Our reservation was right before they closed for the lunch shift so it was a bit hectic since we were the only table. Our server was great but it was almost like we weren’t there as far as the rest of the staff. Kale salad was killer! Will definitely recommend to other travelers to NO.

    Arrived 10 minutes early and was seated right away. The space is tastefully decorated and fun. Noise level was good at around 6pm, but an hour later when people packed in it became very loud. Wouldn't recommend it for an intimate date because of this but fun to take friends or a more casual date. Food was outstanding, will definitely come back for the pizzas and desserts. Didn't try the cocktails this time but they looked great at other tables. Waitress seemed to be in not the best mood but did her best to be polite and attentive - effort worth a generous tip.

    A lovely meal. The food, the staff, the setting...all wonderful. The House Ricotta was a delicious way to start the meal, and the insulate was refreshing. Although the Sausage & Peppers is very different from my memories of this dish in Chicago, it was utterly tasty. My wife enjoyed the Risotto (with crispy Proscuitto, yum) and to wrap it up, our server Jordan was delightful, attentive and a great server. A glorious evening. Go!

    Best aperol spritz! We loved the kale salad and inslata mista although they took a long time to come to the table after ordering. Meatballs were good but you only get 2 for $8. Margheria pizza was decent, and the brownie with gelato would have been better warm!

    We ate our entire meal before our drinks came. This is the second time dining here where the drinks take 40+ minutes. The food is great and ambiance was nice, but keep in mind that your drinks will take an unbelievably long time. I ordered a second round of drinks before receiving my first seeing how long it was taking. I never received my second drink.

We ordered The Standard, ricotta pancakes, crispy potatoes, and The Spicy pizza along with some DIY aeperol spritzes. Everything was fresh and full of great flavor!

    I’ve never had a meal here that wasn’t exceptional. Amazing food, amazing drinks, and it’s like they chose the music specifically for me. Something about having such high quality food in such a cool, fun environment really sets it apart from the rest. Sofia has easily become one of my favorite restaurants that I’m always excited to come back to.
