“Excellent dinner at the bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Recently visited Enoteca Sogno and met with friend at the bar. We enjoyed several drinks, an appetizer of white bean bruschetta and bread which was excellent. Dinner consisted of pasta with marinara sauce (my favorite) and my friend has the pasta with sausage which was spicy but delicious. Great place on Bellevue and well worth the visit. The restaurant is large and can seat large groups as well as smaller tables as well. Who knows, you may run into some Richmond celebrity while there. We did! Do yourselves a favor and visit this neighborhood restaurant!

“Good but Limited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

This is a small and attractive neighborhood restaurant. It did some things very well but a little more attention to detail would have made the meal better. Our entree of seafood pasta was well prepared and very good. The portion was normal, not gargantuan. The wine selection is very good. The waiter was cute and efficient. We ordered a mixed appetizer platter to share. It had a piece of unseasoned, no olive oil roasted red pepper, a dollop of bland, very smooth chopped liver on a rock hard cracker, a walnut size piece of gorgonzola, pickled zucchini, a few anchovies and fewer olives. With a bit more thought and care this restaurant could be more than just a convenient neighborhood place. It has potential and is worth another visit.

“A great meal, a vegetarian feast.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

We started with a white bean bruschetta, and toasted bread, very tasty. Then we got the roasted beet, orange salad, another tasty dish. We finished with a basil pesto, and egg noodles, it was wonderful. We enjoyed a bottle of wine the waitress suggested. The restaurant only has a small sign over the door so you have to look for it. The inside is a lot bigger then the outside looks, There is also a lovely wine bar on one half of the restaurant. Its very warm and cozy on the inside. We will be back.

“Great wine collection, but the foodl is less carefully crafted lately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

The owner travels to Italy every summer to replenish his collection, so this restaurant is worth a trip if you like Italian wine. Although not listed on the menu, they can provide gluten free pasta for all of their pasta options However, the seafood was overcooked to a slightly rubbery texture.More disturbingly, however, the chicken picata was cooked with the skin still attached and was a disgusting texture. A good meal can be had if you order carefully,

“A Saturday evening's meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Our reservation was for 6:30. At 6:40 we ordered drinks and shortly afterwards placed our appetizer selections and entree selections. At 8:10, our food arrived. To say that our group was very disappointed in the time it took to for the main course to come out, would be quite an understatement. A group of 7 that arrived after us, was eating for at least 15 minutes before we were.
I had the soup as an appetizer and my wife had the beet salad, both were delicious. The lady beside me had the rockfish [ the last one], she said it was good but over cooked. The lady across from me had the wild mushroom dish and said it was very good. That will be my selection if I ever return, which........... My mixed seafood was pretty good and my wife liked the braised beef. So a very mixed review for our group.
