It was my second time there and just as my first time the food was fresh and delicious. The staff was always available, responsive and courteous. The owner came over to say hello as thank us for coming. I am looking forward to my next time back. If you want a wonderful experience come to Sociale!

Sociale is a spectacular neighborhood Italian eatery, elegant and casual at the same time. The lasagna is utterly divine. All the staff is delightful, service is tip-top and neighbors table hop, greeting one another, Tuscan wines in hand.

A well thought out delicious menu. The flavors of the pasta, delicate seasoning of the meats, made this a great culinary treat. I highly recommend for dates or business dinners.

We live in the neighborhood and are lucky to eat here once a month or so. The service is excellent, the food really exceptional, and the owner is always on site making sure everyone is comfortable and things are running smoothly. Really a gem of a spot.

The space is a creative, but not fussy reworking of an old building. The service was gracious, but not overbearing. The food was delicious and interestingly constructed. The wine list was also good. It's an excellent cho8ce for a contemporary Italian restaurant.

We had a great meal at Sociale. The lasagna was delicious along with the chicken confit and filet mignon. We also shared the cheesecake which was great and a chocolate dessert. Service was only a little slow, but we were in no rush so it wasn't a big deal. Reasonably priced house wine too. I'd definitely come again.

I live in the neighborhood and highly recommend this gem, both for its consistently delicious food and it’s warm, casually sophisticated atmosphere. The service is terrific too, interested and helpful but never overbearing. More than a dozen times here and never anything less than highly satisfied.

Francesco and his staff will make you feel like family, but it's a restaurant so the food better be good - and it is. if you want a step back into a family run Italian restaurant of the 50's, this is it.

It was extremely loud. There was a very noisy group next to us. Wish they had sat us next to another available table far away from the noisy group. There were plenty other options. The apps were ok and both fish entrees were way over cooked and wouldn't be very good even if it was prepared properly. Would not recommend this place to anyone. We were the last table in the restaurant on a Friday and they stared cleaning around us. Seems they wanted us out..

Really nice vibe, good music, nice layout. Food was just tasteless sadly - had the soup, calamari, crunchy string beans and the halibut. Soup was actually decent but needed a ton of seasoning, calimari was inedible and we sent it back, halibut wasn’t bad per se it was just like eating cardboard and the string beans were over cooked and again had no flavor. Waiter was very nice but didn’t have much faith in his opinions on much, he was just executing. If I didn’t travel from the city to go maybe I would have not been so critical, definitely not a destination spot.
