We were recommended by a friend to this restaurant but were very disappointed. Portions were small and it wasnt cheap. I had salmon and requested salad instead of mashed potatoes The salad was a few pieces of lettuce and a bit of cucumber. I was still hungry afterwards. Wont be returning!!

Had been recommended this place for its amazing food, they were not wrong, food was absolutely delicious. Service was great although it was quite empty the night I went so would like to see the same level of service on a busier night. Well price for the amazing, delicious food. Will recommend and visit again. Top marks.

I read some good reviews for Sofalino so we tried it on Valentine's Day. We weren't disappointed although the swordfish was overcooked. For an Italian restaurant they should get rid on non-Italian wines. Why bother? Good service though.

It was my Mother's 86th Birthday and I wanted a restaurant not too far from where she lives. This was a good choice. Nice menu, something for everyone whether you want a pizza or a pasta or something more substantial. The veal was very good and so was the calves liver. Our waiter was exceptional, he made us all feel very welcome and was extremely attentive especially with my Mother who loved all his flattery!

I booked a table so we could celebrate a family night out. The service was first rate and we were made very comfortable. There was a reasonable selection on the set menu and the food arrived promptly and was tasty. My gluten free intolerance was no issue and I had plenty of choice. As a family eatery it scored highly and will certainly eat there again.

This meal was for my mother's 95th Birthday. The staff (family owners?) were really attentive and helpful, engaging without being intrusive. The food was excellent, freshly prepared . They had run out of a couple of specials, which I take to be a good indicator that the food is fresh not out of the freezer. The puddings were beautiful, very good panacotta and the almond tart was excellent. A wide range of starters, mains and puds and all reasonably priced. We will certainly go again.

Although everyone in the group enjoyed the food. We felt it was lacking in atmosphere. Plain boring white walls and wipe clean tables.
Food was tasty although lacking in imagination. Plain lamb fillets with sauté potatoes and boiled vegetables. Not very special but OK. Seafood pasta was tasty and hot. Not so sure I would recommend for a special occasion but good enough for a quick meal.

Quiet on a Sunday evening but still with some atmosphere; excellent food (a bit more variety than the typical Italian offerings), good value fixed menu and specials, and attentive service. Recommended.

Pleasant venue and staff, traditional Italian food nicely cooked and presented. We were there for an early dinner and by the time we left around 9 the place was heaving with what looked to be regularly returning customers.

Brilliant - as ever. Took overseas guests whom we hadn't seen for many years to one of our favourite eateries because we knew that Sofalino would provide perfect ambience without loud music so that we could all hear ourselves speaking! They were impressed with all aspects. Nice that gratuities were included - think this is usual with a larger party and bonus that American credit cards which don't have 'chip and pin' could be accepted in the card machine. Many don't accept them. Well done Sofalino again!

Oh dear - this was disappointing. My starter was rocket and parmesan salad - and that's what I got - rocket and parmesan with no dressing, no balsamic vinegar, just rocket and parmesan. My main course sea bass - supposedly grilled but almost certainly pan-fried - was tiny and served with overcooked vegetables. This was 2 bits of broccoli and 8 green beans. We asked for more green vegetables which were equally overcooked. At 10.30 on a saturday night we were the last customers and they were closing up.

Went to Sofalino's for mid-week lunch with a colleague. It was pretty quiet but the menu was wide, food good, service attentive and meal was good value. Homemade Tiramasu a particular hit!

The staff couldn't have been better from start to finish - they increased our number of seats on the day to 15 without turning a hair, the ages from 10 to 91 and the range of challenges that produces in our party proved no trouble for them either. There was an good choice of options available in the early bird menu and everyone, without exception, declared the food very good.

Overall it was nice. Needs a bit of colour to make it a bit more cosy.
The food was served quickly but we had to wait half hour to get asked for dessert. Slight oversight. Good value
