We love Sofia’s!! If you like heat- definitely try the East Durham or Mexican (although just looking now at the menu and I don’t see the Mexican as an option- it was our favorite!!). You truly you can’t go wrong with any of their pizzas- even the plain cheese pizza is amazing. We also love their house salad with the homemade Italian dressing- delicious!

The prices are great and the food is even better. We have had delivery twice from them and each time it arrived hot and early. I would highly recommend!

Normally I do not like thin crust pizza as it is that mushy New York style with toppings so finely ground that they are unidentifiable. Sophia's has a thin crispy perfect crust. Somehow, they are able to make that thin crust support diced toppings. Their daily lunch special is my regular go to meal.

Excellent pizza! This is a hidden gem. I'm so glad I decided to try it out. These pizzas are made by professionals who care about their products. I prefer NYC style with minimal crust and they nail it. I appreciate the ingredient ratios. Everything is included in correct proportions. You won't get too much crust or sauce or too little cheese in each bite. The 18" pies are often slightly bigger than advertised. You'll pay twice the price for one here than a takeout special at Dominos, but these are 10x better. I very much look forward to trying everything on their menu. Highly, highly recommended.

Excellent Pizza! Fresh, quickly served, friendly service. Nice size 14 inch pie I could only fit half in my belly. Saving the rest for later!

Today was my first time at this eatery. I saw it while driving. Being that I am originally from BROOKLYN I had to check this place out once I saw the Neón pizza sign lol 😂. The veggie specialty slices I had they were A1!!! The crust has the perfect consistency; slices were baked to perfection; toppings were fresh and overall presentation puts you in devour mode. 🎈Doesn’t beat NY pizza but has gourmet pizza vibes. A new experience for any ones pallet. Definitely returning sooner than later. 😊The inside has a beautiful ambiance and is definitely a vibe. Once COVID-19 gets the hell on I am looking forward to eating inside one of these days. 💛🧡Also big Shout out to Ellery for excellent customer service. Your Southern hospitality was definitely noticed. ⏭Next menu item I plan on trying is their veggie lasagna #staytuned

The pizza was amazing and it was hot and fresh. However, it's not as good as New York's pizza but it is close

First off I recommend this spot to everyone the greeter has such a positive vibe. And the pizza slice was large and delicious also the lemon pepper chicken great and I think the ranch dressing is homemade. Can’t wait to go back and try more things.

I tried this on the recommendation of folks who said it was the best pizza in Durham. I have to agree. The pizza is creative and made with good quality ingredients. Price-wise i don't think there's a better option. We also got side salads which were huge and really fresh. It's my new go-to for pizza and i'll definitely be back.

Had a pepperoni pizza and lemon pepper wings. Hands down the best pizza spot in Durham. I wish it was more lemon pepper on the wings. (personal preference not a complaint) Hopefully they won't ever change their pizza receipe like so many have after a year after opening. MUST TRY.

Best pizza in Durham! I'm not usually a fan of thin crust pizza but Sophia's does it right.

Love it! Everything is freshly made! Service and atmosphere are terrific. Although 2x I've gotten the wrong type of sauce on my wings, other than that the pizza and salads are delicious

Since moving from NY, i have struggles to find a good pizza place. Ya know, not like a fancy, hipster pizza place. I mean a real good, mom and pop feel pizza joint. But here, almost two years later, I finally found Sophia's Pizza. Great pizza, great wings, neat place. Highly recommend.

Great pizza and wings at a very reasonable price. I haven't tried everything on the menu yet, but I would highly recommend the East Durham pizza and the Chipotle wings. They've also got a solid beer selection if you're eating in.

I was intrigued by all the positive comments so my wife, daughter and I decided to give it a go today. The pizza was top quality, the wings very good and the salad excellent. I will definitely be visiting again!

Check out this new East Durham pizza spot! Tasty, affordable pizza in a converted garage. Casual vibe with friendly staff. Street parking and an open lot across the street make for easy access. Easy counter-ordering and great beer options. Check it out!

Nice laid back place. Don’t necessary love the area it’s located in but pizza was good, wings were good, salad was good, however I wish they’d add some crunchy romaine lettuce instead of just the field greens. Overall I’d come back! They also said they’d be delivering soon within a 3 mile radius so that’s a plus!!! Very nice staff...inexpensive

Really, really good. Pizza is thin crust and outstanding. Love how they get it to stay firm and crisp. They have the traditional options and also some house specialties. We tried la guerra which was amazing. The salad was the shocker though as it was so fresh and good with homemade dressing. Not what you expect at pizza place. It is counter order but they then being to table. Friendly staff. Really nothing but good things to say outside of I suppose parking could be tough as it is mostly street parking.

When I first heard that they were opening in the neighborhood I was both very excited and nervous. Excited because I wanted a restaurant and bar I could walk to, nervous because with the nice atmosphere they were building I assumed it was going to be swanky overpriced pizza which I don’t enjoy. To my pleasant surprise the young local couple who owns it did the right mix of quality pizza with some interesting flavors at 5 star prices. Best price to pizza ratio in town. A cheap beer selection. Excited for outdoor seating and bar! Happy to have them in the neighborhood!!

Super impressed with this place. Great pizza. Also, I love their salads. If you are in a rush, you can grab a slice any time. We live pretty close so excited to have it nearby. Definitely hit them up.

This is the best pizza in Durham. (Yes, I am including Pizzeria Toro in that assessment, which I also love, but it's a different experience, and I believe the pizza itself is better at Sofia's.) Sofia's has everything I like in a pizza and nothing I don't. A thin crust that stays crisp, good sauce level, just enough cheese, and the toppings are fresh and delicious. The East Durham in particular is awesome (be ready for the heat as others have said). We waited way too long to try this place. We will be back, and often. It's a hidden gem in a town that takes its food seriously.

I've wanted to eat here for years but my schedule never allowed until this past week. Nice clean restaurant. The hostess was super cute! She had a great taste in music too because, per staff, it was her Playlist coming through the speakers and I had every song already on mine😂. She made the entire experience so 3 stars for her. The pizza was average..not bad..not good..but average. Nothing stood out about it at all(thus the additional 1 star)I'd still return for the vibes and maybe try a sandwich..and of course to check her out again.

Fantastic pizza, the pesto chicken is my favorite. Consistently good every time I've ordered. The wings are good too.

I want to like Sofia's however each time I have gone something has fallen flat. The 2 slice pizza deal during lunch is a great value. The slices are a nice size and they were not stingy with the toppings on the specialty slices. The toppings were flavorful however the crust and sauce are where things didn't quite make it for me. I can't describe it except to say something was missing. I decided to try Sofia's again when I wanted lasagna and garlic knots. Like the lunch deal it was a great price. The portion of lasagna was good however there wasn't much flavor. The garlic knots were not cooked through, they were dry and the cheese on top added nothing. I think they may use whole wheat flour and that could explain these misses though I regularly use whole wheat flour in my cooking. Every one is always friendly when I go. I'll try it again in a few months to see if the flavor is there.

I usually get the xl pepperoni pizza and chicken strips which is a deal! I got the cheesesteak and wings. I'm slowly making my way down the menu but it's hard when you find one thing that's amazing in itself! You never disappoint thank you😋

Finally went to try them out. Went on a Sunday afternoon. The staff were very friendly. We ordered 2 pizzas to go but wanted to eat a slice hot and fresh so they gave us plates too. Their pizza is really good! The ratio of cheese to sauce to toppings is really on point. Their crust is the perfect thickness too. Thinner but not hard or crunchy. I'll definitely be going back. Edited. Just tried their chicken tenders this sunday. Soooooo good!
