We stumbled across this gem and would go back in a heartbeat! The sour dough bread was freshly baked in store and as an appetizer we had the (highly recommended) Pecorino Sausage grilled radicio and salsa, which melted in our mouth. Our main course was a homemade rigatoni with braised rabbit and pine nuts that wowed our palates, followed by... More

I ordered the escarole salad, nicely flavoured and fresh but they overdid it on the dressing. I also ordered the gnocchi which was great. The pasta was pleasantly soft and the cheese was delicious, almost melt in your mouth. The tomato sauce with it was excellent too, very fresh tasting. My husband ordered the rabbit pasta. He really enjoyed it.... More

Waiter was great! Suggested an awesome Amarone. Duck egg sunny side up was solid Pork Belly main was a disaster. A polenta slurry with bits of rapini, Brussel sprouts and pork belly- really weird presentation and not good from a taste perspective. In fact mind blowingly bad for a resto of this calibre.

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
