This was such a treat for our first night in the city. Our server was knowledgeable and patient answering my questions and made sure we had a great night. We had the ricotta appetizer everyone here has mentioned and it was definitely worth the hype- chefs kiss!

We also split one of the pizzas (probably could have had a second it was so good). Best part of the night was zero reaction all evening and into the next day.

Had the whipped ricotta (highly recommend) with gf bread and gf pizza. Happy on all accounts. Sat outside under cover and had a very attentive server. Felt like she was on top of the gf options and notified the kitchen. Drinks were flavorful too!

This was my second time at Sofia and it was just as wonderful as I remembered. Fantastic choices for gluten free. The whipped ricotta with gluten free flatbread is a dream. The salad and pizzas were delicious too! Great service and ambiance in the outdoor seating area.

Great restaurant with reasonable prices. A lot of the menu can be made GF as others mentioned, I felt very safe. Definitely recommend the whipped ricotta - the gf pita that came with it was sublime! Get the prawns too if you can, I had the funghi pizza, which was delicious too. Highly recommended.

Best gluten free pizza we ever had! The crust was primarily made from cauliflower and did not contain coconut (an allergen in many gluten free products). We would definitely return to Sofia. Great ambiance, amazing food and safe eating.

Sofia’s was awesome! At least half of the appetizers were gluten free, all of the pastas and pizzas can be made gluten free, we asked about cross contamination and they were very aware and prepared their GF meals in a separate area. The potatoes were crazy amazing

Definitely one of my favorites if not my favorite spot in New Orleans! They do not have items marked GF but so many things there are gluten free! The ricotta appetizer was mouth watering and the potato appetizer was great as well. I got the steak and eggs for my main meal. Highly recommend! Everyone is very knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination.

We chose this place solely off of the reviews on this app and wow, did it not disappoint! Even though they were slammed the wait staff still took time to walk us thru the menu— almost everything could be made gf. The chef even came out to our table to talk us thru accommodations. They were incredibly knowledgeable about celiacs and just ensured we had a fun night. The food is amazing, even though our whole family is not gf, everyone ordered from the gf menu and said it was some of the best pasta and pizza they ever had. One note, the gf menu is not online.

Everything was soooo good. Gluten free options for everything! We had both the pesto pasta and the mushroom pizza. 3 of us were GF, 4 were not and the waitress was super helpful navigating the meni and marked the orders with allergy and walked it back to the chef personally to be sure. I would definitely eat here again and again.

Loved Sofia! It is a modern take on an old school Italian vibe, and the ambiance and decor were very well done. It was very loud at times but it didn’t last too long. Finding gluten free Italian options can be especially challenging, but this was amazing. The service was great and very accommodating. They did a mod for the lobster flatbread so I could have it (so yummy!), have gluten free pizza crust and the gluten free pasta arrabiata was delicious. Will definitely add it to my list of favorite NOLA places.

I simply can’t say enough about this place. The minute I asked about gluten free they pointed out the very few things that couldn’t be made gluten free and all else was available to me. I ordered a very simple spaghetti pomodoro and weeks after the trip I am still thinking of how incredible the sauce and the homemade gluten free pasta was. Excellent and no stomach issues at all. Can’t say enough.

If you like being surrounded by photos of Sophia Loren this spot is for you! The atmosphere is upbeat in the open space, high ceiling restaurant. My wife and I are gluten-free and they have pizza and pasta as well as bread for us. We began with cocktails which were very good. My wife had an Aperol Spritz and I had a Negroni. Il for our meal I had the cacio e Pepe prepared perfectly. My wife had the risotto which she said was tasty and the vegetables were so fresh they tasted like they were picked that morning. Our server was professional and personable and understood our dietary restrictions. Overall a great find and highly recommended.

I usually write reviews on behalf of my celiac son and hubby but I had to drop a line for this one. I don't have to eat gluten free, but tonight I ordered gluten free Cacio e pepe so my hubby could try it and oh my gosh it was amazingly good!! Even my picky kids loved it! By far the best gluten free pasta I've ever had in the last 14 years!

This restaurant was awesome. I got the gluten free margarita pizza and my sister got the gluten free alla vodka pasta so we could share them. My sister isn’t even gluten free and she said it was probably the best pasta she has ever had. Did not make me sick which is very rare when going out to eat for me! Love this place.
