Reviews for Sophia's Grotto

What an amazing restaurant! The food was plentiful and delicious, the hospitality truly and in the best possible sense Italian. I loved how they decorated the restroom with the old LP jackets - Mario Lanza, Robertino Loretti - I know these guys from my parents' musical obsessions. Made me feel like I was home ❤

We found this place just by chance. What a beautiful setting, safely distanced tables and lights. It looks like going into a European restaurant that is tucked into a corner in Barcelona. As beautiful as the setting is, the services is also fast and friendly. The food is really good. We specifically liked the stuffed artichokes and the scallops and risotto. They also have heating above some of the tables so we will come again for sure, even during the cold months of Covid.

This was my first time dining at Sophia's Grotto. First impression: idyllic outdoor seating, looks like a hidden gem in Italy. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, John Garufi,. Our server, Katie brought us a very nice wine list and from then on...FABULOUS! I had the special of the day, lobster ravioli and honestly have never tasted a ravioli dish with a more exquisite flavor. Katie brought our steaming hot dishes to the table with a fabulous cheese on request. full review
