We were drawn to consider Sofias by the very polite and helpful greeter, and made our final decision to come in because we liked what we saw on the menu. We knew we were taking a chance because the restaurant was empty, and we were aware that the online reviews were low compared to others near it. However, the lobster... More

Dropped by this place for dinner as wanted Italian food. Did not come with any expectation but kept an open mind. Ordered 2 traditional pasta dishes (vongole and meatball spaghetti) and garlic bread. The pasta dishes were pretty good - above average. But my wife and I were strangely hooked on the complimentary bread and olive oil. Just couldn't get... More

Either the food comes from a can, or the cook man is very bad. Anyway the food was not good at all and it was way too expensive. They include 18% of service in an arbitrary way, they don't deserve a dime. Very disapointing restaurant

Please avoid that restaurant!!! Bad food, tourist trap like no other, too expensive, service crap and so on and so on. The "boss" told us that everything is the fault of his staff and he cannot do anything against it. They would be the perfect participants for Gordon Ramseys hells kitchen. The service of 18% is included and that is... More

I must say, with so many options and the fact that I've been to Little Italy so many times. I wasnt Ed to try something new. The gentleman at the door, what a gentleman man. He was the reason we decided to enter, which I'm glad bc I really enjoyed the food. The Margarita Pizza, eggplant parmigiano was so delicious.... More

We were staying nearby and this place came with recommendations of the owner. We all got different pasta dishes and we're happy with the variety of sauces offered our complaint was that the portions were small especially in comparison with the prices which were not small. But we enjoyed our meals.

Neighbourhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
