Description: Enoteca Sociale is a real Italian Wine-Bar in the west end of Toronto. Sociale brings the concept of the Italian Enoteca to Toronto. Our value driven wine list focuses on hidden gems from various regions of Italy plus some of Ontario’s finest. We are proud to offer 80 wines under $80, available in tasting sizes thanks to our Enomatic system. Chef Rocco Agostino’s menu featurescad daily house made pasta with inspiration from classic Roman cuisine and local seasonal ingredients. Our very own cheese cave houses a selection of Ontario and Italian cheese. Simple, Honest and Natural.—Chef Rocco Agostino, Max Rimaldi & Daniel Clarke

We are frequent visitors to Enoteca, as the restaurant has such a warm and relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, in addition to terrific food and wine. The wine list, which is all Italian, is very extensive and includes a great selection of wines by the glass. All of the waiters are so helpful with wine and food choices. The menu includes many small sharing plates, lots of tasty pastas as well as a couple of meat and fish offerings. The desserts are equally special! We have introduced many of our friends to the restaurant and all have been as impressed as we are.

Decided to visit after hearing from co-workers and friends about this place. The appetizers were very tasty, as were the main courses. The wine selection was interesting, but solid. The waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable about the food and wine they served. I would suggest you get the wine by the bottle, as it will be cheaper believe it or not. I will definitely visit again.

Small and cozy, this restaurant definitely has the best Italian foods I've had in Toronto. The portions are not oversized, but perfect portions for dinner and trying more than one course.
There are suggested wine pairings with each meal, where they offer half-glasses for half price. This is a great way to experience new wines!
Love this restaurant, and will definitely come back for a special night out.

Although this small quaint restaurant is a bit out of the way.....get yourself there! It is really worth the trip. Great home made Italian-made by the nonna I never had. Knowledgeable server who knew every detail of the menu-shows a well trained staff. The wine list is a bit "chunky", splurge on a nice bottle, it will compliment your delectable pasta. Save room for the sticky toffee pudding-enough to share, unless you want to pig out with your own.

I took my honey to this restaurant for his birthday since he loves meat, lol! That's not to say there aren't other things on the menu. Everything was succulent and TO-DIE-FOR-DELICIOUS! Love the atmosphere too...

We had:
a selection of artisanal cheeses with house made accompaniments;
crown" beef carpaccio, bone marrow, sunchoke chips & arugula;
fried sweetbreads & roasted carrots;
pappardelle, lamb ragu & don panchego;
and a lovely bottle of Italian wine.

All amazing (sweet breads are not my thing but I tried them - he loved them).
This was my second visit. Will definitely go again! It's a tad pricey, but the quality is worth it!
