Fantastic, authentic, Italian restaurant. Exceptional food - recommend the sautés prawns to start! Attentive service and overall lovely, enjoyable atmosphere. Strongly recommend the valipolicella Or Amarone red wine. Can't wait to return

We chose to go to Sofias to celebrate our first date there 13 years ago. Words can not express just how disappointed we were. The decor is beyond tired, the carpets are filthy and what once was a pool full of coy carp is now...More

Haven't visited for a while, but when I did visit I was disappointed with the food, and felt the cost was high.

Went this evening for a family birthday, on arriving, it was so cold, no atmosphere, and empty. Food arrived it was appalling, tasteless. One meal had to be sent back and then we were charged over £12 for service charge, which we refused to pay....More

Service was fantastic. The food was lovely as was the wine. Shame the decor is so dated and absolutely freezing inside. Once again though good food and great service.

Description
The Guildhall in Walsall's Old Square is an imposing old building which dates all the way back to the 16th century. Now a Grade I listed gem, the site has been converted into a lively neighbourhood Italian restaurant and the never-ending dining room is crammed with tables of all sizes, fairy lights and an open-plan kitchen where chefs are hard at work tossing pizzas in the air. Live music & Italian music is played at Sofia's, adding to the upbeat atmosphere, and the menu is filled with old-fashioned favourites and also traditional English Favourites such as afternoon tea and Sunday Roast
