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.

Chef Kris did it again! So much talent and creativity. We just came back from a five week trip to France and Barcelona and we did not miss our great dinners in Europe last evening. Not only does Leah offer exceptional service, she knows her wines and can recommend the one that will carry you throughout your meal. We just... More

My partner and I are regulars at Enoteca Sociale. The service (Thanks Leah!) is amazing and the food absolutely amazing! It's an added bonus that everything is so reasonably priced! We brought my family there last night and again never a disappointment! If your looking for good Italian in the city, this is the place to go!

My boyfriend and I visited Enoteca Sociale later on a Friday night for a good bottle of red wine and some Italian munchies. We were not disappointed. It's a small restaurant, but full of personality. The wine list was large, with lots of options. We ordered the charcuterie board, a cheese selection and the arancini balls with our wine. Everything... More
