    We booked a last minute reservation to Sofia and were not disappointed by the quality of the food and service. We also quite enjoyed sitting in the terrace. This was our first time here and had family visiting from out of town. The climate controlled terrace is great and I would probably always prefer it over dinning “inside” in the dinning room. Service is very good and our server even noticed my wife cleaning a tiny stain of sauce on her dress with a Napkin and she brought a bit of soda water and a micro fiber cloth to help. The only complaint I have is with a very rude server who showed us to our first table and that, when he overheard my wife tell me in Spanish that she preferred to sit at a different table , he said to me very rudely, in Spanish, that he was just the messenger and that I need to go talk to the people in the front. Luckily he left immediately after saying this and we didn’t see him again. Good riddance. I did to talk to the Manager and they happily offered another table within 1 minute. Drinks were very tasty but pretty weak and we questioned whether they had any alcohol in them. Also, we found Food portions to be a bit small for Texas standards, but totally fine in the rest of the world. We are light eaters and two appetizers were barely enough for 4 people. If you are hungry, err on the side of ordering more food than you think you need. Because portions are smallish I’m sure most people will find the food to be a bit overpriced. Pizzas are personal size and crust is almost like cracker thin. Desserts were really good Lastly, a pet peeve of mine is the fact that it is valet only and it is not complimentary.

    Disappointed all around. First, no option to self park. Valet only. Ten open spaces in the lot, but nowhere to self park on the street available, so we chose to valet, which I often choose anyway, but don’t like not having an option. The two person table was too wide. Could barely reach my wife’s hand. So loud I couldn’t hear her even though the place wasn’t full. So dark we couldn’t see the menu. Many people were using their phones for light. Told to “hold on” twice by the waiter even though they weren’t very busy. 20 min to get drinks (Tuesday night. Not busy). No dark beers available. Was told they were out of the beer I chose (by the little computer he was using to take the order). Turns out they did have it, so their little computer system was incorrect. Was told about the specials after we already had an appetizer. We had the ricotta app drizzled in honey. Not bad, kind of bland, but the toast was cold and chewy. Tasted like it was toasted much earlier in the day. We didn’t risk dinner. We left, and went somewhere else.

    I love this restaurant but on Sunday I decided to try something different and went for the Vitelli allá Milanese. I regret my choice. I wish they had done a better grease control for the meat. Definitely it wasn’t a $44 worth dish. Disappointing experience. On a positive note, the service was very good.

    We had a great experience at Trattoria Sofia. I let them know ahead of time that we had a birthday and they were proactive with a cake and a candle. We felt very cared for from management to the wait staff and the valets. As a family that lived in Sicily as an adult for 3 years, the food was fantastic!!! My only (small) complaint was the noise level of the restaurant. At times it was difficult to have a conversation. Bravo to the Trattoria Sofia Team!

    The setting is cute and very intimate and that’s the only thing I enjoyed it. Service was ok. Food was not tasty at all - we ordered 5 different plates and none of them made me say - I want to come back. The JULEP cocktails however were AMAZING, when I read Julep was involved with the cocktail menu it made me excited but the restaurant didn’t deliver, sadly.

    Lunch was great! I had the Amaro colada, ricotta di pecora, and bucatini alla pesto siciliano. My friend had the riposino lunch combo. He had the bergamot margarita, spiedini de fontina di prosciutto and cacio e pepe. Our waiter Alex was nice and patient. I love the ambiance. I'd definitely come back to try brunch.

    Our server Carlos (?) was marginal at best. He didn't even tell us the specials or ask us if we wanted a drink. I was surprised as I like this restaurant and brought out of town guests there. I won't do that again. The hostess was nice and the ambiance was very good. Just a disappointing level of waiter service.

    A must for any Lover of Italian eats and drinks! We were able to enjoy the last brunch availability on HRW and it was 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ across the board! The Ricotta whip with garlic crisps, fried arroncini croquettes, fire-roasted labneh and beets, crab bruschetta and mango sorbet were all amazing! It was pricey with the added coffees and cocktails (Monaco Sour $15 and the Fire Roasted Bloody Mary $15) but well worth the fine-dining experience. One other major thing to point out, our server, Ray, was so knowledgeable, patient and attentive! We will be going back and would recommend 🤩⭐️

    We actually had no idea who our waiter was the entire time. We would flag people down to take our order. The only consistent service we got was from the man making sure we had water. The food was OK. We were really looking forward to dinner there, but sadly were really disappointed by the overall experience, especially when there were glasses of wine added to our bill that we never ordered since we don’t drink alcohol. Very odd experience. Maybe this place is still working out some processes, but overall wouldn’t recommend.
