My family and I went for dinner and it was great! Service was exceptional and the food was really tasty especially the "Oso Buco". The environment was so italian including the man who came in to play music while we were having dinner.

Lord forgive me for I have sinned... Honestly the best Italian I have ever had! And I've been Italy. Do yourself a favour and get to Sofia's, have the bruschetta, Pappardelle Bolognese and splurge on dessert. And if I'm ever on death row, this is what I'm ordering. #takemeback

Always hard to know how truthful the hawkers are out on Mulberry Street are in Litte Italy, as they try to lure you in to their restaurants. As my usual place was closed because of a busted pipe, my party decided to check this place out after being advised "you don't like it, you don't pay.. and a free glass... More

Nice and cozy restaurant in Mulberry street, one of the many in Little Italy. We made reservation just to be sure to have a seat. It was a very busy place on Christmas, but when we arrived we had our table ready for us. One tip, don't sit to close at the entrance on a winters day, it's cold -... More

We were walking through little Italy and were looking for a place to eat when we got approached and talked into Sofia's. It was worth it! The service was impeccable and the food was better than my grandmothers (shhh don't tell grandma).

My 12 year old and I visited for a late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the food was delicious. I tend to have pasta alla Norma so opted for it this time. It was superb! My son had tortellini Bolognese which was very tasty. If we are in the area we will... More

We asked for black pepper when the meal turned up and we had nearly eat it by time they brought it over (why have salt on your table).

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.
