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.
Food was great, but they need to play different music
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.
Love this place and Rodrigo!
Incredible food and beautiful setting. Perfect for special occasion.
Owner/manager Francesco never disappoints with relatively simple dishes, beautifully presented and prepared with high-quality ingredients. Consistent excellence, a recipe for success. Bravi!
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.
Great restaurant amazing pasta and desert was amazing...the only complaint is that they do not serve bread as usual in Italian restaurants
Love the Fresca salad. And the Meyer lemon Valentina MUST be tasted to be believed
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.
In spite of the restaurant being very busy, the service was excellent and the food was superb. a little too noisy but the place was buzzing.
Amazing very typical Italian place . Francesco, the owner makes you feel at his home
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.
Really nice servers, delicious food... a bit noisy!? But, overall, a really excellent place for dinner.
I love it here. They always have delicious soup which is the only thing I can eat. The people I go with eat more and enjoy it.
Service was bad, food was overcooked
Excellent excellent excellent ALWAYS
The overall experience was amazing except when a lady came in with her dog and the owner told her that she could not have a dog in the restaurant but let her stay anyway.
Great night at the Sociale, the quality and flavor of food was very nice and you can find a great wine card. The ambiance and service is also good. A place to note in your good adress of Brooklyn.
Best pasta place in the city!
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.
It's great. I have special food needs and they are so accommodating.
We took a chance and picked this restaurant from reviews on Yelp. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Very Hospitable Host. Service was good. Ambiance cozy and lovely. Overall. food was good.
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.
Great service and wine selection. Desert was a home run!
The food was great. There were 4 of us. Just 1 person was disappointed with the duck and potatoes. Every thing else was great. Definitely going back. Service was great.
As always a unique dining experience! Francesco is the ultimate host. So personal, inventive menu and delicious!!!!
The ambiance is so sophisticated and serene..,
It is a European dining experience.
My go to place for business lunches where you don't have to shout to be heard. The food is excellent. I love it for Sunday brunch as well. Empty at lunchtime in spite of the excellent food.
Always a wonderful experience
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.
BEST PASTA EVER!!!! The sauce is the best we ever had.
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.
