Our pizza is based on the true Neapolitan recipe, with an inimitable taste. To make it, we mix stone-ground wholemeal flour with the renowned Caputo flour of refined wheat.
Our sensitivity to gluten intolerance has led us to create a safe and innovative project. An area dedicated to gluten-free for the preparation of pizzas and our dishes.
Who we are
The name Regina Sofia was born on a beautiful day when in our family restaurant, where we only cooked fish, we received an unexpected visit from the actress Sophia Loren. The actress asked us to accompany the ordered dish with a focaccia pizza and, as we did not have a wood oven, we ordered a focaccia in a nearby pizzeria. She ate it but realized the deception and with a joke she told us: "O Napulitan se fa sicc ma nun mor" and smiled. We replied: "We will open a restaurant with a wood oven and we will call it Queen Sofia!". The Regina Sofia restaurant-pizzeria was born in Bologna from the idea of a group of young entrepreneurs from the South to revive, in the Emilian capital, all the flavor of the best Neapolitan cuisine. Inspired by the values that embody the Campania tradition and enriched by the unmistakable taste of the best local ingredients, all the dishes of the Regina Sofia restaurant in Bologna represent a triumph of flavors and aromas.
At the basis of our vision is the desire to combine modernity and memory, rediscovering the recipes of the true Cilento and Neapolitan tradition, favoring and enhancing the excellence of the Campania region and beyond.
Pizza, prepared according to the ancient tradition, occupies a prominent place in our culinary offer. Just like the fish that always arrives fresh through the Italian supply chain with several weekly drains. At Regina Sofia we follow the recipe of the real Neapolitan pizza, from the choice of ingredients to cooking in the oven, made by Neapolitan master craftsmen.
We offer delicious appetizers, tastings, fried dishes and traditional entrées to share with the whole table while waiting for your dish. A ritual, more than a simple appetizer, in full Neapolitan style.
We prepare the real Neapolitan pizza respecting ancient traditions and fundamental rules of bread-making such as careful measurement of the temperatures of the ingredients, leavening and maturation.
All the craftsmanship, experience, passion and Cilento tradition blend with the best raw materials and the inspiration of our Chefs: very fresh and top quality fish meets both traditional and innovative preparations.
We offer our customers meat dishes prepared with care, passion and creativity by our Chefs. Regina Sofia is a tribute to good food: a place to rediscover forgotten recipes and experiment with new ones.
We are artisans of true Campania cuisine but also attentive innovators, our recipes come to life thanks to the synthesis of these attitudes. Our dishes are prepared with top quality raw materials. Our cuisine stands out for the vastness of the proposals and for 90% products from Campania and Cilento, such as San Marzano tomato, buffalo mozzarella from Paestum DOP or fiordilatte from Agerola, tomato from Piennolo from Vesuvius, artichokes from Paestum , Cilento EVO oil, Gragnano pasta and many other products.In our restaurant-pizzeria you will find dishes prepared to perfection.
"Restaurant in a quiet street in Bologna, easy to reach. The staff is very courteous and exhaustive in recommending the courses. The very nice chef takes the time to briefly explain his dishes, making sure they are to the satisfaction of the customers.
We tried an appetizer and a first course each, excellent quality, both of ingredients and preparation.
The homemade dessert was very good and the chef also brought us samples of other desserts for not
make us miss anything.
I was struck not only by the quality, but also by the courtesy and kindness shown, which is increasingly rare today.
It is a place where you spend from 20 euros upwards, but I absolutely recommend it if you want to enjoy good dishes in a quiet and relaxed environment. "
"I already knew this place from previous excellent experiences, but only for pizza. For some time working in the historic center of Bologna, I approached during the lunch break. I believe that the excellent experiences of other customers must absolutely be shared as I have had way of tasting other dishes, especially fish based. We are talking about an excellent base made of excellent raw materials, and not to be underestimated absolutely cooked with experience and passion. So there are five
absolutely deserved stars both from the point of view of quality and excellent value for money, which should not be forgotten when we talk about fish, it must be suspicious if it is too low. The only hope is that you will continue like this. Your lunch break client. "
"An excellent, almost perfect experience in this place.
All very good and top quality, The staff very polite and welcoming. I ordered some simple pizzas and a typical Neapolitan appetizer, as seen in the photo. Perfect food, perfect place, nice environment.
The only flaw is that some tables wobble because the bricks on the street are not that great. Good guys keep it up! "
