Description: Enoteca Sociale is a real Italian Wine-Bar in the west end of Toronto. Sociale brings the concept of the Italian Enoteca to Toronto. Our value driven wine list focuses on hidden gems from various regions of Italy plus some of Ontario’s finest. We are proud to offer 80 wines under $80, available in tasting sizes thanks to our Enomatic system. Chef Rocco Agostino’s menu featurescad daily house made pasta with inspiration from classic Roman cuisine and local seasonal ingredients. Our very own cheese cave houses a selection of Ontario and Italian cheese. Simple, Honest and Natural.—Chef Rocco Agostino, Max Rimaldi & Daniel Clarke

Incredibly well-prepared pasta dishes. Flavourful, fresh ingredients, fresh pasta, excellent ingredients. Serving sizes are normal, not American - which might be distressing for some.

Excellent wine list, mainly Italian of course.

Communal tables make for a vibrant atmosphere.

Not the best of values, but not overly kexpensive either.

Came here for dinner with a good friend. Had the sausage and octopus for appy and the fettucine with chicken liver as main course. Top it off with the rice pudding and a machiato. Every thing was exceptional.

I had a wonderful meal here -- how could you not?! The place has its own cheese cave, for goodness sake, and they are making their pasta by hand, on site. They also have a wonderful selection of wines, although be warned they are punishingly expensive: tastes (2 oz) are routinely over $10, and glasses are in the $30s. If you can swallow the cost though, you will have a great meal and a great experience here!

Went to ES for the 2nd time with my fiance and once again, they did not dissappoint. The waiters are very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Ambiance is cheerful and perfect for dates. Excellent wine selections. Not sure if they still have the half price wines on Mondays. We started off with the grilled octopus and albacore tuna. We then shared the salt cod and potato ravioli and we shared the 20 once steak with roasted bone marrow. Everything was cook to perfection and delecious!!!!!

We will definitely comeback!
