Italian
Sociale (say - "SO-SHEE-AH-LAY!") was born in the bistros of Florence and raised here in Presidio heights. Laughter and Italian music are heard floating up from the star-lit, heated patio greeting you from the discreet garden alley below. Families and friends leaving the frenetic pace of the city behind can experience a lighter and decidedly more Italian mood celebrating in our new private dining room, the traditional room or on the patio as the irresistible scents of warm pastas, herb-infused meats, and the sweet honey and nut coated sfingi with vanilla bean gelato shake permeate the surrounding space. Bewitching and eclectic wines from Italy and California complement the weekly changing menus that Chef Julio Mis crafts with joy and delight for our neighborhood friends!

    The portions size are relatively on the small side considering the cost . The rabbit pasta with Marsala wine was $36 . Was is something extraordinary? Not at all fir $36 you can get better . Other pasta we ordered was $29 each .Alk the appetizers were$19?$16$18 and very small in size. Barely 3-4 slices of orange & small piece of burrata. .

    It was nice to be back year after quite a few years. The vibe is very nice and the Service personal in a nice way. Most of the food was very good, and the pasta special was just next level delicious. The pork special though was overcooked by more than a little.

    This is a reliably fine restaurant. In this visit, I especially loved the beet salad, which was enlivened with frisee, almond slivers, and other goodies. The chocolate bread pudding dessert was also great.

    We ate out on the patio in the pouring rain: the heater worked quite well but a breeze blew through. Maybe they could do something about that. Expand I or seating? Create an enclosure for patio? Food was good as always. Wine pricy and also tasty.

    So many things about Sociale are great. The food, the service, the ambiance! One thing about last night...we felt very rushed. Only minutes after placing our order, the apps came out; and barely as the (cleaned!) empty plates were removed, the main courses arrived. The check landed only a couple of minutes after deciding on no desert. I think our whole dining experience lasted under 50 minutes, which is way too fast for this kind of lovely restaurant. My advice (and reminder for us) is to ask for courses to be spaced out some, or order mains after finishing appetizers. This does not take away from the delicious dishes, etc.

    Always a treat to dine at this tucked away neighborhood gem. We shared the autumn salad, homemade pasta and the perfectly prepared veal chop. Italian wine list is extensive and reasonably priced by SF standards. We found a delightful schioppettino for under $100, a wonderful varietal we rarely find outside of northern Italy.

    Normally, Sociale is a very peaceful place to dine. But last night with APEC in town, large groups had relocated their downtown dining to Sociale. So incredibly noisy, but still very good. The halibut was delicious and they offered a special with sun chokes on the side, so I ordered a side of those. Quite good. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their pasta and risotto dishes. Great fried olives, as usual. Wonderful neighborhood dining!

    I think the Halibut was a very good addition. Being a notorious “ dry fish” I would suggest you serve it with Tartar Sauce, so it can be easier swallowed. The portion of halibut was superb. The Mushroom Risotto was superb I wanted to order the Panecotta… but with olive oil??? Please go back to the great original Pnecotta recipe . Impossible to improve on it.
