Amazing dining experience

We dined at enotical sociale about 3 weeks ago. We were a group of 6 and the service was excellent even though the place was pretty busy. The food was amazing and still reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone from or travelling to Toronto.

A group of 10 of us dined in Enoteca Sociale's private dinning room in the basement wine cellar. It was totally amazing. For $45/person (not including wine) we were served a wide variety of family style dishes to die for. From tuna to salads to sausage and 3 different types of pastas. Every bite was better than the next. The... More

I went here on a Sunday evening and it was fantastic! We had the private room downstairs for 6 of us and I believe it was around $40/ person for a 3 course meal. We started with meats and cheeses which were fabulous! Next up a salad, sausage, a fish dish and the deep fried risotto balls. For the main,... More

We were 4 people for dinner on a Saturday night. We found street parking quite easily on Dovercourt. This may have been due to the early reservation-6 pm. We would have preferred to dine a little later but even with 1 week advance notice this was the only reservation we could get. So heads up, reserve well in advance for... More

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
