Group dinner in Roslindale, JP

8-10 of us. Is the food better at Delfino than Sophia's Grotto? Ten Tables can seat all of us together. Any other suggestions?

  1. I recommend Delfino's over Sophia's. They typically don't take reservations, but maybe they do for large groups. However, if Ten Tables can take you all together, you might not want to pass that up.

    1. To represent the minority opinion, I like Sophia's better than Delfino's. I'm happy that they're both there, but I've found the food at Delfino's to be kind of blah and the atmosphere to be a little stuffy. Never really understood the universal love that it gets here. Sophia's food is a little more creative and I like the more casual, urban vibe. Also, Sophia's does take reservations.

        I would throw in a vote for Geoffrey's Cafe in Rosi Square.....might be a bit more casual than Delfino's (I don't know, I haven't been there) but the food at Geoffrey's is always good, the service always super proficient and friendly, and the overall vibe is really warm and relaxing. Whenever end up there alot when we have a group....

          Good call - it is also has a lot more room and would be more comfortable for a group than either Delfino or Sophia's/.
