We decided to try this restaurant for dessert and once seated we were so intrigued by the menu so we had appetizers too. The pasta Fagioli ?? Soup was very good and the baccalaureate?? Was fresh and tasted like my husbands Nonna used to make!! On to the desserts - the chocolate mouse filled pastry puff was delicious. We will... More

This was our first time at Enoteca Sogno. We were seated quickly for our reservation and greeted by our very friendly waiter. We chose a couple of wines by the glass, but their bottle list is extensive with some great selections. DW ordered the Pesto Tagliatelle with a roasted beet salad. I ordered the Bolognese Tagliatelle with a mixed green... More

We recently moved to the North side of Richmond and have been sampling the neighborhood restaurants. The first time we spotted Enoteca Sogno, there was no one eating there so we moved on to the neighboring North Side Grill. But we finally tried it last night based on Trip Advisor reviews and we're in full agreement. The service was prompt,... More

I would define a really great “neighborhood” restaurant as having great food and wine, but also being comfortable and accessible. A great neighborhood restaurant is one that you can just show up at – without the hassles of carefully planned reservations – park your car with ease and then have your expectations surpassed with each and every course. That is... More

I liked this restaurant when it was on Broad St. But being a pescatarian - fish or veggies only - they only had one dish I could eat, an excellent pasta with truffle oil. Now seafood seems to be the order of the day and they do an excellent job of preparing it. The bread is also out of this... More

These people know how to cook fish! They usually have rockfish fillet, whole flounder and Bronzino; and in season soft shell crabs. The cooking is simple, such as roasted rockfish fillet with olive oil and red pepper flakes, but perfectly done and very tasty. The pastas are homemade, done al dente and deliciously sauced. The appetizers, such as white beans,... More

Enoteca Sogno is elegent and moderately priced. The decor is attractive, the service is great and the meals are outstanding. They have a one page menu but lots of specials and the wine list is extensive. They also have a great selection of international beers and many are a pint or more. I visited about six weeks ago and had... More

Recently visited Enoteca Sogno and met with friend at the bar. We enjoyed several drinks, an appetizer of white bean bruschetta and bread which was excellent. Dinner consisted of pasta with marinara sauce (my favorite) and my friend has the pasta with sausage which was spicy but delicious. Great place on Bellevue and well worth the visit. The restaurant is... More

This is a small and attractive neighborhood restaurant. It did some things very well but a little more attention to detail would have made the meal better. Our entree of seafood pasta was well prepared and very good. The portion was normal, not gargantuan. The wine selection is very good. The waiter was cute and efficient. We ordered a mixed... More
