At Sofia's Ristorante, golden fried calamari splashed with a balsamic reduction and crabmeat-stuffed portobello mushrooms drizzled with gorgonzola sauce top tables draped in white tablecloths. These appetizers will soon be replaced by housemade pastas, chicken shrouded in prosciutto, shrimp in a sherry-wine sauce, or 1 of more than 10 types of veal dishes. Nearby, a chef stands in front of couple, readying their order—the house specialty linguine parmigiano-reggiano that is prepared tableside in a wheel of cheese.
On music nights, amid the sounds of hearty laughter, live jazz-music notes bounce off the bold red walls and into ears before shooting straight down to the toes. The sounds of clinking glasses filled with BYOB drinks add to the lively atmosphere.
