    We ordered the food to go and we totally get that the quality is not going to be on par as if we eat at the restaurant. The dishes were still warm and that is great. Not going to ding them on noodles because I’m sure they cook a little more while in transit. The disappointment comes from first our shrimp scampi only having four shrimps. Second the sauces were all lacking flavor and light – most of the pasta dishes were dry because it needed more sauce. We ordered five pastas in total and all of us were disappointed. The best part was dessert, all three were very good. I see lots of great reviews and it seems like they have good nights and possibly bad nights. I hope they can improve consistency.

    I was really surprised by my experience here given the great reviews. The service was good, everyone very friendly and accommodating. But the meal itself was one of the worst restaurant meals I’ve had. One pasta dish was rubbery and dry as if leftover pasta had been left out then reheated. The gnocchi were gritty mush. Neither dish had any flavor. Maybe we ordered poorly or it was an off night, but the difference in the reviews and what we tasted was highly disappointing

    Delightful dinner with friends on an early Saturday evening. They were able to easily and comfortably accommodate six of us without a reservation. We really enjoyed the complimentary bread and olive oil before getting our main meals. Service was fantastic! I especially loved the bresaola arugula plate with the GD Vajra Nebbiolo. Perfect pairing!

    Enoteca Songo is unassuming from the outside but has a warm, inviting feel inside. Great Bellevue neighborhood spot!

    Went with friends and had a lovely time! Definitely a hole in the wall little Italian spot, but excellent service, food, and wine. We started with a bottle of wine recommended to us by our server; followed by the bread (fresh, warm, delicious), the arugula salad (could’ve had more cheese, but the lemon vinegarette dressing was so good), calamari (excellent marinara), and the brussel sprouts. For dinner we had the Cornish hen dinner special (very rich. Super juicy and tender, and the skin was to die for), the pesto gnocchi, and the shrimp scampi. They warned us that the hen special would take awhile to cook, but between the wine and the cozy ambience, we didn’t even notice the time. Everything was amazing, and the portions weren’t huge, so we didn’t have any leftovers and didn’t leave feeling overstuffed. We even had room for dessert (the pistachio ricotta cake and the lemon mascarpone cake) paired with limoncello. Between the vibe, food, and staff, we had a wonderful time!

  36. James Quinn 2022/04

    Even thou this doesn’t look like much from the sign or outside it was great place to eat. The bread was fresh and good dipping it in olive oil. The fried calamari was tasty. I had halibut special with pesto pasta . It was very good. The wine selection was very good. For dessert we had canolli and lemon cake they were top notch.

    First off, the service was absolutely wonderful! Our waitress was a gem and very helpful. On to the food, when I say it was amazing it was AMAZING! My husband lived in Italy for some time and he said it was just like being there. Now, this is no Olive Garden so don’t go in there thinking you will get a “Tour of Italy” with all you can eat soup. It’s sea side village Italian food. We had grilled octopus, rock fish, and branzino. Oh, the wine! It was phenomenal! If you are looking for something authentic or if you are looking for something magnificently delicious check out Enoteca Sogno.

Great food, excellent wine list, great Décor.

  60. Mike Casey 2021/02

    Quaint, easy to miss restaurant that is worth a visit. Reservations highly recommended. We had the pasta Bolognese and the evening special rockfish with a side salad. Bread was good, rockfish very well prepared, salad very good. Bolognese at first seemed very sparing on sauce, but upon tasting, was just the right amount. Don’t expect to take 1/3 of your meal home in a doggy bag. The portions are sized for one person, one meal, one course, and not feeling overstuffed. This is a quiet restaurant that seems to expect you to sit back, take your time with your wine and meal, and enjoy each other’s company without feeling rushed. A very nice change from table turning experiences that are routine elsewhere. We will visit again.

  66. Teresa Cole 2020/08

    Everything was good. But just good. Not memorable enough to make me go out of my way to come back. We started with a meat and cheese dish. Kinda pricey for what you actually get. The pasta dishes were super small. Wine selection is excellent. The night we went was dead. We chose to sit on the bar side, and maybe that was our mistake. A very loud RVA city council member was there and was obnoxiously loud to the point of ruining our meal. I won’t blame that on the restaurant but perhaps don’t sit on the bar side if you’re looking for an quieter dinner. Desert was okay. Just kinda meh tiramisu that was a little different than your regular tiramisu. There’s just way better Italian in town if that what you want.

    My second visit was not quite as amazing as my first, but still pretty amazing! Cozy atmosphere, extensive, affordable Italian wine list, and knowledgeable service. The menu is simple and comprised of fairly straightforward dishes done exceptionally well. The portions are quality not quantity and perfect if you ask me! Two standouts for us: the imported cheese and hands down, the perfectly al dente pasta with wild mushrooms – the sauce is made with a light but deeply flavored stock. It is perfection.

    Why hadn’t we found this neighborhood gem before?! Elegant without being fussy, the short menu is doubled by the seasonal and daily specials. Lots of vegetarian and seafood options. If you’re overwhelmed by the extensive wine list, ask your knowledgeable server for a recommendation — ours asked about our preferences before suggesting a few options, and our ultimate selection was perfect. Many offerings sound like typical Italian fare — I had bruschetta, wild mushroom pasta, and cannoli — but every one is prepared to perfection with the freshest ingredients and served with the same unfussy elegance. Portions are reasonably sized — you can have a starter, entree, and dessert without feeling overstuffed. This may become our special occasion go-to restaurant.

    Everything is done right. The food, atmosphere, and staff are a perfect.

    They have a huge wine selection and the staff knew what to pair with our taste and food choices.

    The staff said and did all the right things to address allergy concerns.

    The only mistake we made was we waited too long to try the Northside gem. Don’t do the same. You can’t go wrong here.

    Wine by the glass was, I thought high at $12 each for one basic red and one white. Best to order wine by bottle.

    Best italian i have had in Richmond. Food and service were incredible. It is so clear that the pasta is handmade fresh. The texture was perfect. The duck ragu had plenty of meat and a well balanced red sauce. Italian wine selection is broad. Waitress was very pleasant and gave great suggestions.

    It’s just not worth it. The pace of this restaurant is borderline glacial. The staff bring one item at a time, takes one order, has not cross support. Again we waited an hour for pasta,not that great either. Everything is done by hand including the math for them check. That took 60 minutes from when we asked for it. If any ask, it’s just not worth the money or time.

    Best chicken I have ever had in a restaurant.

    This is our new go-to place for Italian in Richmond! A group of us went last night for my wife’s birthday, everything was spectacular. Ordered mussels in marinara, a burrata with olive oil, basil and tomatoes, and a cheese plate for the appetizers, two bottles of wine (the verdicchio from Marche was particularly excellent) and rockfish and whole flounder for the mains. Pistachio gelato and espresso gelato for dessert. Everything was perfectly prepared, and we were all super impressed by our waiter’s knowledge of the food, particularly the cheese and wine.

    It’s a little far afield from where we live, but we’ll be back many times. Totally worth the trip.

    I didn’t even get to try the food because the service was terrible. The wait staff ignored my partner and I when we walked in. When we finally got seated, the waiter read us the specials and then when we didn’t order a 10 dollar glass of wine (you can only order 4 wines as a glass and all of the glasses are 10-12 dollars) he proceeded to ignore our table and for a half an hour before we just decided to leave. He waited on plenty other people who came in after us. And none of the other wait staff helped either. I would give this restaurant a 0 if I could.

    Escargot of dinning experiences

    In one sentence, this place sucked. I can’t believe this restaurant can survive. The dining room was loud, the service was beyond slow, and the food was mediocre at best.

    Each couple had their drink order taken, waited, and then served before the next drink was taken. We all sat at the same time, no late comers. I was sitting for 45 minutes before I received my first beer. (Yes, I know this is a wine bar, but I was there with a friend, her choice.) An hour into the dinner, the appetizer came. Another half hour waited for the entrée…..

    I got the feeling that because we weren’t ‘known’ to the staff, we didn’t receive service. In the time we were sat, the dining room filled with other diners. They were served, ate, paid their bill, and left while our table was still waiting for the server to take the dessert order. Yes, we had a large party, they tend to be difficult to deal with but there was so much time between each ‘check in’ that no one at the table was still deciding on what they wanted, we were all chomping at the bit to get the next food item in front of us.

    The only thing that was provided quickly and regularly was the water. I drank a lot of water that night and felt quick full when I finally was able to leave two and a half hours later. Maybe that was the point of all the water, to make the customer feel satisfied with the food.

    The bill was done by hand. Yes, this is 2017 and all the items were added by hand with a calculator. This was so painful to watch. And in the process of figuring out our bill, our server had to stop, go into the kitchen, pick up another tables entrée and bring it out. Um, pretty sure one of your co-workers or the manager could have helped you with that. Luckily, we paid with cash so we said our good-byes and almost ran out of there.

    28th anniversary. Another perfect evening at Enoteca.

  113. Sarah C. Richardson 2017/01

    So good.

  114. Chris 2016/12

    Amazing food! I went with a small group and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Their bruschetta is great and all their entrees we had were amazing. Also a great wine list that’s reasonably priced.

    Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Richmond.

  115. Chris Hannah 2016/08

    Food was great. But took a little while. Interesting beer selection also.

  116. James Wallace 2016/05

    I had my first dinner at Enoteca on Saturday night and it certainly will not be my last. The Brussels sprouts are great and the spinach lasagna is the best I’ve had in Richmond. The wine list is all European and very reasonably priced. If you’ve not been there yet, you must go. It is a neighborhood gem.

  117. Tyler C. 2016/02

    Great little venue. Very off the beaten path, great great food and good service. Great atmosphere for just getting away.

  118. Timothy Roy 2016/02

    My boyfriend and I had the calamari and a glass of very delicious cab. This guy, either Gm or owner kept running around screaming at the help. Totally ruined it. I felt really bad for those people.

  119. Brad Weiss 2016/02

    The. Best.

    I recently had dinner at Enoteca-Sogno with a large group of friends. We all had the best experience at this restaurant. Gary (the owner) helped me create a menu that was perfect. It included appetizers, salad, entrees and dessert. He was delightful to work with and knew what to choose that would be crowd pleasers. The wine selections were incredible. If anyone was unfamiliar with a suggested wine, a taste was offered before purchase. I didn’t see anyone reject what was offered. The appetizers were amazing. We couldn’t get enough of the calamari, bean salad or red peppers and mozzarella on crostini. The salad and bread were delicious, and the entrees, sausage and rapini, spaghetti and clam sauce, tagliatelle with bolognese and chicken picatta were fabulous. I had the espresso gelato and it was the best ever. Our group (41 people) wants to return to this restaurant every year. A great thought. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great wine and Italian dinner experience..

  121. Joel Ingram 2016/01

    The food was pretty good, but not outstanding. The service was excellent as was the wine. They seem to strive to be a traditional Italian restaurant as if one were in Italy and do well for the most part. The food was not overly impressive in taste or presentation but it was overall a good meal.

  122. Camilla Rios 2015/05

    This place really is a dream! So elegant in its simplicity. The food is very ingredient driven, you can taste every different bite of the seafood in your pasta, the cheeses are wonderful, and don’t even get me started on the wine list…

  123. Pam DArcy 2013/08

    You have to try the mushroom with truffle oil pasta it is dreamy. Plus the bartender is very helpful with the wine. Nice pkace for a date.
