Food was delicious. They had gluten free options, so that was HUGE plus for an Italian restaurant.

Everything was great, upscale vibe and decor, great for special events or a cool date night. Only slight knock was service, because my impression is that he was rushed. We had to ask for refills and the table wasn’t always cleared right away. Only reason was because we had high expectations at that price point.

The service and food were extremely good. However, this restaurant is not adhering to social distancing guidelines. It was well over three-quarters full and mask guidelines were not being followed by customers, though the staff were wearing masks. I hope the management realizes that wearing masks does not protect the wearer from contracting COVID, but does help keep the virus from being passed on. Please protect your staff as well as the diners from those who walk around the restaurant without masks.

We had a great time at Sofia as usual. Fun, energetic crowd and the restaurant's decor is modern and elegant. The food was simple, flavorful and delicious. The way Italian food is meant to be. We cannot wait to return.

Enjoyed the meal. Our server was very pleasant and sweet, just seemed overwhelmed and too busy - but we are living in unusual times for any operation to be 110% spot on. Food was great - the Cacio de Pepe was a bit 'overdone' with butter - but that's their version I suppose. I wish they would show old Sophia Loren movies/clips here. Great option in the Warehouse District.

We had made a reservation through OpenTable at Domenica. When we arrived at the appointed time, Domenica was closed. Went on the OpenTable app and found that Sofia had availability. We were able to get in and we had a great meal and a great time. Three of us had the fish. It was just delicious. I forget which pasta dish our fourth had, but he said it was great. The service was very good, as well. No complaints whatsoever. I am very glad that Sofia was able to take us.

I love this restaurant! It is beautiful and the food is delicious. The waitstaff is amazing and they really stepped up to help out people during the quarantine! I usually always try to go to different restaurants as there are so many choices, but this is the rare place that I will revisit.

Sofia is a new find for us. We read about it in New Orleans magazine and decided to add it to our dining list on our annual trip to New Orleans.
It's very well designed, clean and well lit. Noise level was not a problem.
The food was very good, and the pastas were some of the best we've had, and we lived in Italy in the early 90s. Service was friendly and attentive, and the manager actually spent some quality time talking to us about the restaurant and the chef.
We're going back soon, maybe tonight, to have a casual pizza dinner there.
One suggestion: the Sofia Loren design motif works well, but why not have the TV show her movies continuously? No one seemed to be watching what was on the night we were there and the sound is going to be down anyway. Showing her movies would complement
the other design elements well.

The octopus appetizer is awesome!

My good friend and I decided to get together it had been some time and I chose this place...I heard great things about it through a friend, Michelle Thibodeaux, and Decided to make a reservation for this place for brunch!!
I had the opportunity to meet the owner Billy he was so sweet and kind he came over to our table to introduce himself and that made a huge difference for me as I am also a business owner and value the hospitality!!
Looking forward to experiencing this awesome place again but next time it would be in the evening, I heard the vibe is even more electric!

Because it was the first Friday in lent we could not have meat and there were some great looking dishes on the menu. However our waitress recommended some dishes that were her favorites and the food we ate was amazing!!! Just goes to show one must step outside cyber box and try something your server highly recommends!! Can’t wait to go back!!!

Exellent food. Service was not outstanding even though there were only three full tables while we were there. High top tables would be limiting for older clients.

Everything was excellent. Made a reservation but once we got there and saw that there was a couple spots at the bar open, we pets to dine at the bar. Was a lot of fun and the staff was helpful with giving suggestions for drinks and food. Food was really amazing. Great job all around. Has been added to our list of regular rotations. Can’t wait try the rest of the menu items.
