Trattoria Sofia, the newest concept from Berg Hospitality Group, is slated to open Nov. 26 at 911 W. 11th St., Houston, offering what owners say will be rustic Italian food in a romantic setting. The eatery was originally slated to open Nov. 19, but the opening was delayed as officials wait on the replacement of a gas pipe.

"We truly apologize for any inconvenience, and we are obviously doing everything in our power to open our doors and start serving guests as soon as possible," owner Benjamin Berg said in a Nov. 18 statement. "I am so proud of how the food and the overall décor and vibe turned out, and I can’t wait for Houstonians to finally experience it next weekend.”

The menu will specialize in modern takes on classic Italian dishes, according to a Nov. 12 press statement from Berg Hospitality. The menu was developed with help from the acclaimed chef Magnus Hansson alongside LJ Wiley, who will serve as the eatery's executive chef.

Menu items include bucatini alla pesto siciliano—a pasta dish made with bucatini, Sicilian pesto, ricotta, pecorino siciliana and toasted pistachio—and costata di manzo al gorgonzola dolce, a 14-ounce ribeye served with gorgonzola dulce, aged balsamic, fire-roasted tomatoes and braised radicchio.

A drinks menu features a selection of wine and classic cocktails curated to match the Italian food, according to the release. The drinks menu will be overseen by mixologist Alba Huerta, who recently formed a partnership with Berg as the group's new beverage consultant.

"We’re always trying to better ourselves and the experience for our guests,” Berg said. “I feel that Alba is the best person to enable us to provide really great, interesting cocktails at all concepts, and I’m excited about the training that she will bring to our staff."
