Starter garnished - La Sosta Derry

La Sosta was opened in 1995 by husband and wife team Claudio and Maureen Antonucci.

Maureen & Claudio’s philosophy and passion for food was cultivated and developed while working and living in Italy. They remain committed to their original mission of bringing the very best Italian cuisine to the North West. This comprises exceptionally tasty but simple food, beautifully presented in welcoming surroundings.


Ingredients are sourced from around Italy…

…and dishes are interpreted from Abruzzo and beyond capturing the essence of all Italy and are heavily influenced by the traditions of Claudio’s native Abruzzo. There is a modern twist to the cuisine that results in bold yet clean and distinct flavours.

Private dining. La Sosta is open …

… for private dining and is ideal for dinner parties, private celebrations  and corporate events catering for up to 50 guests.


STYLE. The style of La Sosta…

…is quintessentially Italian with its elegant simplicity and use of natural materials. Crisp linen tablecloths, Italian artwork, a warm fire and a piano combine to give the restaurant its unique atmosphere, while from the conservatory the customer’s eye  is directed towards the view over the City and the River Foyle.
