Enoteca Sogno review-Richmond, VA

Janet from Richmond | Aug 28, 2006 12:37 PM

Friday night, I had dinner at Enoteca Sogno for the first time. It was Mr. Janet and another couple. First of all, we are big fans of Edo's Squid, where the owner used to work and the menu defintely had that Edo's/Mamma Zu feel to it.

It's next door to Cabo's on Broad Street and parking isn't too much of a nightmare because of Pleasant's Hardware across the street.

We had reservations and had to make some last minute adjustments and they were very gracious and accomodating.

The atmosphere is nice. And we were seated promptly. The men picked out the wine...mostly Italian and other European offerings. I had the Gavi de Gavi which was good. The men had a red they were pleased with. Appetizers were the caprese salad with red and yellow tomatoes and white beans and arugula (similar to Edo's). Bread was very good as was the olive oil provided for dipping (we bought a bottle of the olive oil for $8). I had veal piccata. It was very good but the portion was about half (and about $4 more) than at Edo's. Hubby had gnocchi with Bolognese sauce which he deemed "okay". Our friends each had a pasta and seafood dish of some sort and both gave it a thumbs up. Our waitress was very good.

While the food is one step off of Edo's and Mamma Zu's, it is still very good and the service was great and it's more user friendly. I recommend it.
