Enoteca sociale always gives you a reason to come back. The service is attentive, yet not overbearing. The staff is knowledgeable but not pretentious. The food has always been delicious and nothing on the menu has ever disappointed. This place is great if you want to spend a little more for a lovely evening. At the same time, the pastas are affordable and certainly worth the price. Highly recommended.

Food was delicious a little noisy. One tip when ordering wine they have a taste size and a glass size I really meant to order the taste size and said glass without knowing this and ended up spending $38 on 2 glasses of wine when I thought it was $12 each, so watch out.

Enoteca Sociale is a gem. Not in your typical downtown location, it is worth finding as it is terrific on a number of fronts - quality of menu, efficient and knowledgeable service, energy/ambiance that is fun and friendly, and a good value for your dollar. Its definitely a "two thumbs up" experience.

We love this restaurant. The food is great and the service is wonderful - friendly and knowledgeable. The best thing in the world is to just let the chef feed you. You get the best of the best and its like they can read your minds - not too much just the right amount and at a nice pace that does not overwhelm.

I've come here several times over many years when I'm in Toronto but it seems to have become quite mediocre. In the beginning, it was a very special Italian wine bar but it has reverted to the mean.

Rather unassuming setting does well to keep the focus on the fantastic food. The team was accomodating and figured out a way to fit in a last minute 5th to our 4 person reso.
Well designed menu ensured there's something for everyone.
Cheese platter starter was delicious, generous and offered a range of cheeses that complemented each other, it just didn't feel very "Italian". The preserved tuna is not to be missed.
Smoked pasta and braised rabbit rigatoni were a hit at our table, we were still talking about it the next morning.
Will be going back very soon!

Great food and ambience...we were in a group and shared the salumi, tuna and sausage, all of which were delicious. I had the bucatini for my main and I would definitely go back for it.

I would love to see them change up the menu more frequently and/or have some features but otherwise everything was great.

The food was delicious, especially the raw beef/marrow. The pasta dishes were made perfectly and the rapini was an exceptional side. A friend picked the wine this time, but I normally like to ask the server to pair with the meals.
The service was outstanding even after putting up with our crazy requests.
Without hesitation would I recommend Enoteca Sociale for a wonderful dinner out.

Pasta was cooked perfectly. They make their own house-made/cured meats.

One of the best restaurants I've been to in Toronto. Their food is absolutely delicious. The service is amazing! They take great care of you there - very warm people. I can't wait to go back. Never disappoints.

Everything was terrific when I went. Service, food, and wine. Decor is really nice, as well. The bread basket we got before the meal was unreal. That Red Fife sourdough bread could make a meal in itself. My appetizer special was delicious, and the striploin was perfectly cooked. I look forward to my next visit.

We had an excellent meal and wine, and our server was excellent. The apps were excellent (arancini, albacore tune conserva), the gnocci was superb (light clouds in an excellent sauce), and the steak, except for an inedible/uncuttable bit running through it, was very good.

As for the ambiance: We were in a cold spot next to the large windows on one of the coldest days of the year - not very comfortable. We asked to be moved between courses and there was no hesitation - all of our items were moved over quickly and we were warm again!

All things considered it was an excellent meal.

This is my 7th or 8th time at Enoteca and each time it gets better. Fantastic food and excellent service. Top Italian restaurant in the city.

by far the best service I have received at a restaurant. Every restaurant has friendly wait staff and the service is good, but here, it is exceptional. They have a good ratio of wait staff to the number of tables. I never got a chance to pour my own water or wine. The food is delicious as well. A great combination.

Enoteca always has amazing food, great service and a wonderful wine list including wines from Ontario! I have been there for dinner with friends, as well as enjoyed there beautiful room downstairs for larger parties!
This is my favourite place to go, have a great glass of wine and a yummy bowl of pasta. Never disappointed!
