Down a brick-paved alley and secreted away in a small courtyard waits Sophia’s, eager to serve Rozzie residents (and in-the-know Italian lovers) homestyle cooking of the highest order. The pasta is hearty, the Mediterranean small plates not especially small and the service doting. A little mystique, an air of romance and a cheap date night too? Sophia, darling, you’re our kinda gal.
