Staff were friendly and provided superb service. I appreciate their patience with us - and the lemon-cellos! It made the event very special. I would recommend... More

La Sosta is for us the best food in Derry. We dont go as often as we woukd like but when we do we are never disappointed. The food is just beautiful, freshly cooked and served with lovely simple sides and garnish. On our latest visit my husband had the rabbit. It was just delicious. Everything we ate was delicious....

Went for a meal after a friend recommended it. They weren't wrong, the food is really lovely and the service excellent. My only problem is the decor, which being very stark (white walls, white tablecloths, and full lighting don't lend themselves to providing any real ambience. I would have given 5 stars if it had been cosier as although I... More
