Terrific neighborhood place. Cozy, warm, friendly ambiance. The food is excellent and the wine list comprehensive. We're definitely coming back!
Our reservations were for 6:30 and we did not receive our main dish until 7:45. No bread delivered until we asked twice. Wine showed up about 15 minutes after we ordered it. There were long pauses between each delivery of wine, bread, appetizer and main dish. When the main dish arrived we were short one set of knives and forks. I got up and grabbed a set from another server passing by or had to hope our Server would show up before the food got cool. . One would expect, at the prices being charged that the servers would have been better trained. We like the quality of the food enough to return again. If you want to keep our business and others, you cannot rely on the chef to save your restaurant. You need trained servers to make it all work. Thanks for asking.
Food was delicious and plentiful. Atmosphere is quiet and low light waitress very attentive. Their tri-color salad and Grey Barn meatballs and linguini in marinara sauce were excellent!
In winter on really cold nights, however, a table right next to the window can be a bit chilly, so recommend warm clothing.
great food and service...prices are a bit high but so worth it! we had a great time there and would recommend !!
Good food and great service. The Sunday opera is a wonderful addition to the Vineyard Winter scene.
All good but Opentable and telephone communications failed to produce a birthday candle for dessert.
What a great evening. Magical setting with opera trio performance created fun and carefree ambiance. Food and service was excellent!
Our evening was outstanding! It included Jenny Friedman and David Behnke’s performance of opera solos and duets as well as Broadway showtunes. The restaurant was packed!
One can aways count on dekcious itaian fire at La Soffitta, with great service usually and splendid barter who has masted art of a divine Limnchello cocktail.
The only flaw on New Year's Eve other than loud guests until their meals arrived, was inability to read the menu or enjoy looking at the chef's creations. It was such a dim, non-productive fake candle on the table we had to use a flashlight provided by the waiter, Sean who was most obliging..
This deflected from the total dining room experience of the plating to oo and ah over, by its usually exquisite appearance.
Ah well, am sure this error will be taken care of by the caring staff. I did wonder however bout bout safety in case of fire. The stairs are steep nd narrow and I did not see any other EXIT available. I doubt the Tisbury Fire Dept would approve of just one escape exit in case of catastrophe.
Very enjoyable and one of the few options during the off season.
Excellent apps entrees and desserts. Good portions and good value. Very good service. Only thought would be to have more fresh home made pasta and skip the dried versions. Nice homey feel but window tables are cold in the winter.
A fun and relaxed dinner experience. Waitrons were attentive but not intrusive.
FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE EXCELLENT. OPERA NIGHTS ON SUNDAYS REALLY TERRIFIC.
We visited Martha's Vineyard to celebrate my wife's birthday. Since she is Italian, I thought La Soffitta would be a perfect place to have a celebration dinner. The place is very nice. This was a Monday night, and it is a relatively small restaurant. It took ridiculously long, over an hour from the time we finished our appetizer, to get our entrees, which were all pastas and one risotto. The waitress apologized three times. I've had this experience in other restaurants but usually a manager will come by and provide some reason for the delay, or offer a drink while you continue waiting. Here we had nothing, just our sweet waitress apologizing. Upon arrival, two of the entrees were cold, which tells me part of the order was finished and sat there while they did the other part. At the end of the night, there was nothing from the manager, there was nothing taken off the bill. Just a bad way to end what was supposed to be a special night.
Lovely evening in a warm friendly atmosphere....food very good.
Absolutely would recommend, Outstanding service, delecious food, attention to detail amazing, Hannah was perfection. One of the best dining experiences ever.
The waitress cleared the the table while someone was still eating their dinner. A major no-no, left a much smaller tip and spoke to the manager who offered an apology. She also had seen the last incident and had reprimanded the waitress. It would have been nice to have been offered a glass of wine upon our return - and we will return as the food is delightful
I have to be clear that it was the half price entree per bottle of wine deal that attracted us. But that won't keep us from returning. From our entrance until our departure, ambience and food combined for a first rate experience. Both my wife's and my meals were excellent. I have had many seafood risottos and pastas over the years. La Soffitta's was among the very best. We will be back.
This was our first visit to La Soffitta. The hostess and waitstaff were extremely helpful and attentive. The food was flavorful and plated very well. The ambiance was romantic and lively. My husband and friends were celebrating my birthday and enjoyed every aspect of our experience.
Every thing was great. My only comment was on my gin martini, it was weak and watery.
We had a lovely table by a window and saw several friends there. A good neighborhood place!
Very pretty place & great food & service...oh! & great cosmo!🍸😀 Dinner was pricey but well worth it! Enjoyed our last night in Martha’s Vineyard with a delicious Italian dinner! I would highly recommend this restaurant. 👍🏼
This place is Average at best.
Amazing atmosphere and great food! It was perfect for our date!
We had a lovely dinner to celebrate a coworkers retirement. Lots of choices on the menu that everyone enjoyed
Definitely over advertised. Food avarage prices very high
It is our favorite restaurant on the island. We have never been disappointed with a meal there. Can't wait to come back next year.
Food was ok, but not great. Service was fast for serving, but slow for bringing check.
Excellent food,service and atmosphere. Pasta was extraordinary light. Yummy
One of my favorite restaurants on the Vineyard. Good food, good service, convenient location.
It was my husband birthday. We had a lovely experience. The food was amazing and the service was just as good. A wonderful place for a special evening.
I would definitely recommend making a reservation as the restaurant was totally full when we arrived for our 8:00! Fantastic food, good service, and they made a big deal out of my friends birthday which was great too! Thank you!!
Great dinner and service. One of our favorite places for a special occasion (birthday).
Our experience here was awful. The service was terrible, they barely checked on us, and it took FOREVER to get a glass of wine. My eggplant parm was burnt and tough (and didn’t even come with pasta), and my husband’s meal came with FOUR raviolis. We ended up not ordering dessert because they gave us the menu, then never came back. It was way overpriced for what we got. Very disappointed.
Our second time there this summer. Enjoyed all aspects. Would go again if we were staying longer.
La Soffita is a wonderful restaurant. The food is consistently delicious and the staff are professional and super friendly.
We always come to La Soffitta when we are on the island and it never disappoints!
Second visit to La Sofitta this season and first one much better service wise. We are now getting into off season and their speed of service reflected that. The food excellent like first visit the service a 1 very slow we only had wine and entree and it took for ever, not good. We might go back but not too soon too many other better service options in town.
Top notch cocktail preparation. Truly talented mixologist.Terrific appetizers and generous fresh salads. Entries consistently good with attentive and friendly waitstaff. Reservations are honored on a timely bases. A “go to”Vineyard spot.
Really nice and intimate atmosphere and the food was excellent from the appetizers to the dessert. Not too expensive for Martha's Vineyard.
Staff was a mess and we got sat a half hour after our reservation. Food was great though
