The new love birds were seen dining together at the Li”l Dizzy”s Café on Sunday, and were “very friendly and took pictures with other diners,” an eyewitness told the magazine. During the meal, “They held each other and kissed several times“.
Just recently Joe, 37, admitted that Sofia, 41, was his dream woman. “You”re gonna get me in trouble. I don”t want to be like a home-wrecker. This person is engaged,” he said of the actress, who split from Nick Loeb in May.

“She”s got the curves, she”s got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous. Naturally beautiful,” he told People. “She”s feisty.”
Another insider told US Weekly, “Sofia is Joe”s dream girl. He”s been smitten with her for years. He”s always had a huge crush on her. Things are going well for them so far.”
Sofia dated Nick on and off between 2010 until 2014. In May, she announced their split, telling fans, “We have been having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and because of my work and now his, it”s been getting worse and worse.”
The relationship was “not fun anymore,” she added. “We are still very close but we believe it”s the best thing for us right now.”
Joe, meanwhile, split from model Bridget Peters around January time. He was engaged to model-actress Audra Marie in 2010.
