We go there all the time. Why? Because they are excellent on all fronts: service, food, atmosphere. And, Signor Nuccitelli, the owner, is a super gentleman who knows how to make it all a success. And.........he hires the best waiters ever. They're friendly, thoughtful, and spot on!!!

Three of four dishes were good. Worst lasagne I have had in a restaurant. Like a block of firm pasta with limited sauce or flavor, and unsurprisingly it wasn't hot because it was so dense.

There is nothing but excellence at Sociale!
This time there were 3 of us. Cocktails and apps to start, then a lovely bottle of red wine + entrees + desert. Every plate was clean!

Best neighborhood gem ever!!

We eat here every time we stay in Brooklyn the food is excellent and consistently good. Also one of the few restaurants that always has more than one fish entree on their menu. Martinis are done to perfection.

Thoughtful, fresh, creative and well prepared. Menu isn't extensive, but touches all the bases. Pasta made in house and fantastic. Staff is attentive and knowledgably. Space is intimate with several outdoor tables as well.

Cocktails really need revisiting - so unbalanced and poorly mixed. Look pretty, taste like a cheap margarita.

Chick peas w the burrata were dry and a little off

Spaghetti with tomato sauce is a staple but this was so unbelievably salty I ate three bites as gave up.

Nice spot but I expected much more especially at the price.

Unfortunately, it was a big disappointment. Last time we were at Sociale a year ago. The quality of food went down significantly. Tuna in tuna salad was stale. Pasta was below average.

The food was carefully prepared but positively lacking in flavor. No herbs, spices, interesting sauces. Not even salt & pepper in the cooking. Bizarre & a shame bcs everyone is so nice.

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.

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.
