Sophia's Ristorante, an award winning restaurant serving the community since 2011 is a family run restaurant known in Ulster Region for homemade food, delicious desserts and excellent selection of wines. Our menu emphasises the use of natural fresh ingredients, skillfully combined to bring out the best of a wide range of traditional Italian dishes. For all the dishes we use organic herbs, grown in our green house and free-range eggs from hens that scratch about in freedom in the back yard of our house. The food here can only be described as authentic - Italian food the way it should be. The menu boosts a wide and varied array of culinary delights including Steaks, Lamb and a selection of seafood dishes. Signature dishes such as pizzas are made with fresh dough and shaped the Italian way. Of course, our pasta dishes are not to be missed. Sophia's Ristorante offers a relaxed dining experience with impeccable service, unique atmosphere and emphasis on excellent food. This "Italian Gem" breeds conversation and good times, dishes of the highest quality while spreading the message of traditional cooking using fresh ingredients. Families with children are welcome (we have a healthy kids menu). Take-away service also available. Large group bookings & single diners are welcome. We are also available for weddings, birthday parties, communion celebration, corporate lunches and meetings. Join us for a fantastic time!
