John was funny and all staff were attentive. The atmosphere was lovely, solo diners, couples and groups were all made to feel welcome and well attended. The food was delicious and the menu choice was extensive. The atmosphere was made by some very special and charming waiters - superb team! Thank you John.

Visited Sophia's last night for a family meal which was disappointing, the decor was something like an old persons front room, with tables squashed in. Overbearing staff trying to rush you through as soon as you sat down, gave you the menu and then asked immediately what you wanted to drink. The menu was not well laid out, we ended... More

it's a compact restaurant and to be fair they've placed probably slightly more tables in the space than is comfortable. We had a table in the middle and were constantly having the chairs kicked as the staff navigated their way round the twisty-maze. The food was great and will certainly be re-visiting but only if I/we can book a booth... More

Just returned from our first meal at this restaurant and what a find it was. We went to celebrate my daughter's 12th birthday and were greeted with a decorated table and balloons. The service was lovely, the food delicious and we will definitely go back again. Thank you to the staff for making our evening so special.

The wife booked a table for two for a birthday meal away from the little one and what a pleasant surprise. It was a Monday night, which you'd expect to be quiet or even closed. The restaurant was pretty much full downstairs. That said, the service was spot on. Sat with a sneaky view into the kitchen as well as... More

This place is great. It's relatively small making it feel like home the staff are great. We were celebrating a friends birthday and the staff could not accommodate us more, we evened up with complimentary table placements and decorations which really got the night to a good start.

We visited Northampton as a one off visit and booked a table at Sophia's following the positive trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. This authentic Italian restaurant is a real gem and delight to dine in. We ordered garlic mushrooms to start, which were substantial and very flavoursome . I had the Roma pizza and my husband had the... More
