I had the opportunity to stay in Derry for 2 weeks and ate here twice. It's entrance is just off of Carlyle Road, a little hidden, literally. The owner and staff are great, friendly people who want you to have a fantastic experience, and it shows. The food was lovely, and you can tell there was some time spend on... More

Had the most beautiful meal here with friends a few ago. It was a Wednesday after work and we had a lovely table looking out the window to views of Derry and the Foyle. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. Food was just delicious- real italian food served with gorgeous italian red wine. Although there was only 1... More

This is thee best Italian restaurant outside Italy. The staff are fantastic. Claudio is the perfect host. The menu is just excellent. I recommend a vist if you are looking for a quite, intimate setting. If you don't try it, you'll never know what you are missing.

We visited La Sosta for my birthday in April. Claudio is the best host ever, and remembered us from our last visit. Charming. The food and service were excellent, and the atmosphere was calm and friendly. We recommend it highly.

Gorgeous intimate setting with lovely staff to guide us to our seats. Excellent starters but main courses were disappointing. A large group arrived in - service became very slow, and it took over an hour for our main course to arrive. Great wine menu but sadly the main courses and slow service let the dining experience down. We felt the... More

We brought family from Belfast (who are involved in the food business) to our favourite restaurant and, as always, we had amazing food and great service. Thank you, Claudio and Maureen! See you again, soon. x
