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”.

I came here for a late lunch (about 2.30 table) with my Mum. We sat upstairs and despite there being only one other table occupied, no one came to ask us for a drink or whether we wanted to order for about 15-20 minutes. Pizza was really good, very tasty, one of the best bases I’ve ever tried. It got to 3.30 when they were closing service and they came up and told us they were closed (I.e hurry up), the waiter followed to take the plate from my Mum whilst she was still eating. We felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome. When we went to pay downstairs the manager (I’m guessing) was tapping his fingers away as if trying to tell us to get on with it.
Shame really but the service left us feeling disappointed.

This place is busy with locals. Worth the wait for a table.
The pizzas we had 2 where both very flavorful. The house wine was a perfect companion to the pizzas. The prices are quite reasonable. Ideally located.

We went in by chance, tired from our walk, but the food proved to be great. We had a four-flavour pizza , which was very tasty and a "taglieri" plateau for an appropriate local taste. The place was crowed, with mostly locals, which is always a good sign. Prices were fair and service was quick.

We were hungry and craving good quality pizza. Found this on google maps as it was close by. What a great find! Perfect dough for the crust and well cooked. It certainly hit the spot.

I went for lunch and had a seafood pizza which was great. The place has two floors and ti was quite busy, but I got served pretty quickly. They also offer a cheap daily lunch.
