Service, food and surroundings perfect. Friendly attentive staff and prices that are good value. Have been able to walk in of the street and get a table, but would recommend booking a table to avoid disapointment

We enjoyed a lovely meal at Sophia's. The staff were friendly, the menu good, the food (and wine) excellent. Good value as well - what more can you ask for? We were surprised at how quiet it was for a Saturday night but perhaps we were dining early.

Visited here last night which was a Thursday on recommendation of other TripAdvisor reviews. We were disappointed when we went in that there were no other diners but the food more than made up for the quietness of the restaurant. We had the bruschetta and the meatballs for starters and then both had pizza. Everything was so tasty and fresh... More

After finding the Heritage Week event in the old Courthouse cancelled, we were delighted to find Sophia's Ristorante. We had looked out some possible places to eat in Ballyconnell before leaving home, and are pleased we picked here. Do not be put off by the grubby appearance of the building facing the main road; the entrance is via a small... More

we arrived with no reservation, there was nobody else in the restaurant at lunchtime on a Sunday but apparently they get busy mid afternoon. Whereas the waitress was lovely she was very quiet but it was pleasant not having everything up sold/pushed on us. A nice setting with parking at the door.

Our first visit to Ballyconnell ended with a wonderful dinner in this superb restaurant. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. There was a welcoming atmosphere created by the lovely decor, the background music and by the helpful but unobtrusive staff. We'll definitely be back.

I took their chicken gordon bleu, and that was the best chicken ever for me 👏. The prices for it was not overpriced either. So if you ever go to Ballyconnell go and eat here
