Owners - Chef Nick & Linda Farrell

For over 25 years, Chef Nick and Linda Farrell have been the proud owners of this establishment, which stands as a testament to their shared passion for food and family.⁣

The story of Sovana Bistro is a love story in itself, as Nick and Linda first crossed paths within the cozy confines of the restaurant. Since then, they have embarked on an extraordinary journey, building a culinary empire that resonates with the values of warmth, tradition, and innovation.⁣

At Sovana Bistro, our menu draws inspiration from the rich culinary heritage of Nick's beloved grandmother, Fran. Her influence can be seen in many of our signature dishes, infusing them with a touch of nostalgia and a homely feel. ⁣

We take great pride in crafting our menu based on the principles of locality and seasonality. Our commitment to using the freshest, locally sourced ingredients is unwavering, ensuring that every dish we serve is bursting with flavor and vitality. To maintain the highest quality standards, we change our menu multiple times throughout the year, embracing the diverse bounty offered by each season.⁣
