Excellent restaurant. Nice intimate atmosphere. Kind of like being in someone's home. Food was excellent- I had the Dover sole. Good service from a charming staff. Only complaint is the quality of the cocktails - I recommend going for the wine. Definitely will be back!

We visited La Sosta for my birthday in April. Claudio is the best host ever, and remembered us from our last visit. Charming. The food and service were excellent, and the atmosphere was calm and friendly. We recommend it highly.

I want to bring my kids but they only eat pizza. Can you help? Their favorite is pepperoni if that's any use. I don't want to bring them to Spaghetti Junction because I heard their pizzas are from Lidl.
