Description: Il nome Regina Sofia nasce dal fatto che un bel giorno, nel nostro ristorante di famiglia dove cucinavamo solo pesce, ricevemmo la visita inaspettata dell'attrice Sophia Loren. La stessa ci fece la richiesta di accompagnare la pietanza con una pizza focaccia e non avendo noi un forno a legna, ordinammo una focaccia in una pizzeria a noi vicina. Lei la mangiò ma si accorse dell'inganno e con una battuta ci disse: "'O Napulitan se fa sicc ma nun mor" e sorrise. La nostra risposta fu: "Apriremo un ristorante con forno a legna e lo chiameremo Regina Sofia”.

On a busy Friday evening, they managed to squeeze our family of five into a ‘small corner table upstairs’. With more than enough space, I’m glad they did.

Zucchini starters, pasta and pizza main courses ... cold red house wine and decent beers to wash them all down.

No rush to get us out of there which was very much appreciated.

We assumed it would be expensive and touristy given its proximity to the Piazza Maggiore, but surprisingly it wasn’t! The Tagliatelle alla Ragu was very generous in size, but the pizzas were amazing! My husband couldn’t stop raving about his, and I didn’t hear a peep out of my 6 yr old who sat and ate every last crumb! The Napoltean base was a winner and we were impressed to hear the chef leaves the yeast to rise for 72 hrs, so 3 days in the making! Service was great and very accommodating of our very short schedule. Absolutely recommended!!

Pizza was delicious: in their menu they propose classics, but also original recipes, like pizza with courgette flowers and potatoes. It was delicious.
Service was fast, and the staff was very helpful in helping us chose our wine. Reasonable prices, considering you are two steps away from Piazza Maggiore. They have tables outside, under the colonnade, which was nice.

We had Tagliatelle al Ragù, it was perfect, big portion.
Forgot to take a picture when it arrived, here's after.
Recommend it.

Trying to convert good Italian food into 'fast foo' does not work for me! Had what was purported to be Fritto Misto - poor selection of ingredients - two prawns a lot of squid - no small fish (as promised) poorly coated - no simply not good enough. Noted many were sticking to pizza, which to be fair, is possibly a better choice for this type of eatery (I refuse to use the word restaurant). So, take your chances....
