Service was outstanding, our server was attentive and courteous and his recommendations were delicious. We started with shared plates of arancini in a tomato sauce and a plate of glazed carrots with yogurt and honey: yum. Bread and oil was presented and a couple of bottles of amazing white wine, glasses were filled regularly and water glasses were filled throughout... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at Enoteca Sociale last Sunday! Amazing bread to start. We shared the salumi platter (we were not expecting a pate as one of the items but were pleasantly surprised with it) and the risotto balls (yummy). The pastas (Amatriciana and dandelion pesto one) were fresh and flavourful. We were stuffed but shared the... More

This restaurant is very unassuming from the outside but has a wonderful ambiance on the inside. The food is delivered quickly and everything is delicious- the fresh baked bread is a nice touch

This is the type of restaurant you want to come back to. The lighting is just right, the food is charming and fresh and tasty, the wine list, long. With a nice patio for the summer months and a lovely private room in the basement for events, I really loved this little place on the corner in Dundas West. The... More

The food here is extremely high quality. It was a surprise as a foody friend took me and it didn't look 'fancy' when we walked in. One realizes quickly the atmosphere is intended. The staff are chatty and friendly. The feel is relaxed but its really about the food. Apparently we lucked out with the walk-in because a reservation I... More

This is the 2nd time we have eaten here - although our first was a couple of years ago. The service is amazing - the staff incredibly knowledgeable and efficient. We decided to share everything so we ate 'Roman ' Style. We started with the Albacore Tuna - delicious and fresh with the fennel. Our Pasta was their famous Bucatini... More

We visited Enoteca Sociale last night -- we had reservations elsewhere but the other restaurant cancelled -- we are SO glad they did as we discovered Enoteca Sociale! We weren't sure what to expect given their small menu, but we were very impressed by the food and the level of service. The waiter knew the menu inside and out, and... More

The restaurant is small, the menu is small but the overall experience was fabulous. We shared a number of appetizers including arancini, short ribs and the charcuterie platter. All delicious but the chicken liver mousse on the platter was a particular favourite. We then had pastas, three different ones and they were all a hit. By then I was quite... More

The food here was very good. I like the risotto balls and the pasta was made very well. Service was attentive and prompt. Outdoor seating is great this time of year.
