Let’s go Al Fresco

July 23, 2010

Once he realized we were raiding his wine cellar, a friends father began
to label the bottles Drink this, Not this and, This is your inheritance.
We had so much to learn.

Enter Enoteca Sociale
from the creators of Pizzeria
. Here, nearly every one of the over 80 wines is available
for tasting so you can sample your heart away (from $4).

Order food a la carte or try the tasting menu ($45). We recommend
starting with the lightly battered zucchini flowersand pea shoots,
topped with shaved ricotta ($11)a seasonal dish, so pounce while you
have a chance. The flavourful pappardelle and braised rabbit ($13) and
the spicy bucatini all’amatriciana ($12) also hit the spot but
necessitate a sweet finale. Try the zeppole with hazelnut pastry cream
($8). It is molto light and lovely.

Top tip? Ask to sit on tree-covered patio, just off bustling Dundas, for
the best atmosphere.

Enoteca Sociale, 1288 Dundas St. W., Toronto, 416-534-1200,
