Cucina Sophia is little jewel in my neighborhood. A short walk away, we often grab a bottle of wine and stroll over to this wonderful Italian restaurant. Henry (chef/owner) applies years of experience honed talent nightly in his kitchen, cooking all meals to order. An extensive menu offers appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, fish, fowl and meat entrees, along with daily... More

We had a family luncheon at Cucina Sophia on Jan. 18. We all loved the food, the service and ambience. If you love Italian food then that is the place to go. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

We made reservations for a large party and were excited about eating here. We'd heard good things about the restaurant. Boy, were we disappointed. There seemed to be only one waiter, one chef and no bus boy on this particular evening. Ugh. When we sat down, we received a small basket of bread, but it was only enough for a... More
