The place was freezing cold Went with a groupon voucher, asked if we could order from the main menu as did not like set menu ( which is almost the same price normally) Were told we could not order from the main menu. I asked to see the manager who confirmed the same. Poor food served by rude staff

I am not going to go into detail (you probably wouldn't believe me if I did) but goodness me this was one of the most random and bizarre encounters I have ever had in a restaurant. The food which we did have (although the order was wrong) was ok but reflected poor value for money. I had never before come... More

Haven't visited for a while, but when I did visit I was disappointed with the food, and felt the cost was high.

Went this evening for a family birthday, on arriving, it was so cold, no atmosphere, and empty. Food arrived it was appalling, tasteless. One meal had to be sent back and then we were charged over £12 for service charge, which we refused to pay. Definitely won't be going back.

Service was fantastic. The food was lovely as was the wine. Shame the decor is so dated and absolutely freezing inside. Once again though good food and great service.

Visited here for the second time, we was disapointed as we had purchased a groupon voucher and when booked told us we could not use it at evenings/weekends. We purchased a bottle of wine when first asked i was shocked the waitress had said they had no rose wine she checked and found me a bottle. I purchased a pasta... More

The Guildhall in Walsall's Old Square is an imposing old building which dates all the way back to the 16th century. Now a Grade I listed gem, the site has been converted into a lively neighbourhood Italian restaurant and the never-ending dining room is crammed with tables of all sizes, fairy lights and an open-plan kitchen where chefs are hard at work tossing pizzas in the air. Live music & Italian music is played at Sofia's, adding to the upbeat atmosphere, and the menu is filled with old-fashioned favourites and also traditional English Favourites such as afternoon tea and Sunday Roast
