We were looking for a quick lunch in Little Italy so we stopped at Sofia's, The greeter at the door was very pleasant so we decided to give it a try. The food was very good. We had the Margarita Pizza with a tomato and...More

Came here randomly as was staying nearby. Unpretentious looking, authentic unfriendly Italian waiters, which is usually a good sign. I had home made spinach Ravioli, partner had Carbonara both exceptional. A good safe bet if your in Little Italy.

The food was good. We were expecting anything fantastic but it was better than the poor reviews. Service was good too.

We had pizza and wine and it was a great meal. We sat outside and took time to relax. The margherita pizza was excellent. The waiter was ok but I don't think he felt like working that day and we would have changed waiter but...More

Either the food comes from a can, or the cook man is very bad. Anyway the food was not good at all and it was way too expensive. They include 18% of service in an arbitrary way, they don't deserve a dime. Very disapointing restaurant

Please avoid that restaurant!!! Bad food, tourist trap like no other, too expensive, service crap and so on and so on. The "boss" told us that everything is the fault of his staff and he cannot do anything against it. They would be the perfect...More

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
