Tapping into true Italian tastes, the menu starts with a selection of antipasti including a citrus salad and grilled octopus, and a plentiful selection of crudo. Mains feature fresh pasta, pesce and locally sourced carne, with a traditional, Italian heritage Chianina florentine steak.

The cocktail program is a refreshing medley of signature drinks with an Italian twist. Expertly crafted by mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda, cocktails are enhanced by regional herbs and fresh in-house cordials, and named in tribute to the country’s vast geography and pop culture history. The wine list features many vintages and an extensive selection of true Italian wines rare to the local dining scene.

    Quite likely the best Italian I’ve ever had (and I’ve been to Italy). Every course was incredible - from the truffle pasta to the lamb. The service was great as well.

    We have been to Sofia many times and unfortunately this was such an unpleasant visit. Hostess was rude to my guest and seemed to have an attitude problem (very impolite; seemed disinterested in her job, which has happened before with another one of their hostess’). The woman who seemed to be the manager took the menus away before I even arrived, so I just ordered what my guest ordered. She also came up to give us with our bill and went on her phone right in front of us, texting, while we paid. Then our actual server (hard to tell who our server was, due to lack of adequate service) came up and asked if how we would like to pay for our bill (he was the only polite staff we encountered).. when we had just paid. Then we saw the same manager giving much better service to the table right beside us; being so friendly and pleasant, when she was completely the opposite to us. On top of that, another server pushed her way right through us as she was delivering drinks to another table. As someone who has once worked within this industry, this was so disappointing and just plain rude.

    Amazing food and service!! Dawn was just awesome! My husband and I don't eat fish so we ordered steak. I had the PEI Prime Striploin and my husband had the Wagyu filet which were really good and cooked exactly as we asked. The side carrots were so yummy! You must try the PIOGGIA VIOLA cocktail!! So delicious! Can't wait to go back and recommend to friends!

    Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in Yorkville. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cared about our experience and our party of four all agreed the food was absolutely amazing....everything we tasted melted in other mouths. Absolutely the best meal I have had in a while in . Highly recommend!

    This is a great place for drinks and some apps perhaps. We thought the food was very underwhelming …overpriced and not up to par for “fine dining”. It’s a fun environment… music is great. Extremely loud, so not a conversation type of place. Overall it’s fun, but not fine dining. So I would go for drinks and apps only.

    The experience was great and the service was great. Missed out on the Ravioli because it wasn’t available but will get it next time. I appreciate that the portions remain generous for this price point as we are seeing many establishments controlling rising food costs by giving the guest less which is a short term solution and short sided. Keep up the great work. Thank you.

    The food was good. I had the pancakes that were excellent. Coffee didnt come. When it did it was cold and milk was curdled. I had to ask for the coffee 3 times. Beautiful pattio and horrible music. Sofia's has the potential of being a gem however the music was horrible and loud even though the patio was lovely. It's hard to enjoy brunch if the coffee doesnt get served. Very disappointed

    The experience we had with the service was probably one of the worse I have ever experienced. From the lack of attention, completely being dismissed when you want to order more food and drinks to forgetting part of the order. The service was quite basic and recreational which certainly does not fit my profile and the type of clients I normally bring to restaurants. Very disappointing to say the least.

    It was a great night the food was fantastic our server was really nice I wish I remembered his name to make sure that he’d praised for his good service. My friend showed up late and they allowed me to sit at the bar and do some work on my laptop before they arrived when my guest showed up they helped take my stuff and charge my phone so I didn’t have to have everything with me at the table. Supper accommodating for vegetarian options that pastas are fantatsic and the wine was amazing! Beautiful interior
