My boyfriend and I had a reservation for 7pm last night for his birthday. We arrived a few minutes early and were very lucky that a table of 4 had cancelled, and were seated at their very roomy table. Our waiter was very friendly and well-informed about the menu. Being vegetarians, we had a decent number of options to choose... More

Enoteca Sociale has maintained its high quality while others have come and gone. The concise menu is extremely well executed and makes extensive use of local ingredients. Most of the items are either gluten free or can be adapted. The first rate cold cuts are made in house (gluten free). The cheese platter included raw and pasteurized selections as well... More

Our first time here after reading the excellent ratings on Trip Advisor. And I concur with a lot of the comments. The pasta dishes were delicious though the portions were small, almost a starter size, and certainly not sufficient to handle a large appetite. We also shared an excellent apple/pecan salad.The wait staff were pleasant and efficient. The wine line... More

I've been here 4 or 5 times in the past few years, and each time I leave so thoroughly impressed, satisfied, and more appreciative of this great restaurant's efforts. That they are also able to keep their menu reasonably priced just speaks further to their endless skill and appeal.

Upon recommendation, we visited this restaurant last night and it was even better than we heard. Fantastic wine, great service, and wonderful food (have the arancini!). And the prices are most reasonable! We liked it so much, we are going back tonight for our last night in Toronto!

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
