This little gem is tucked away in Bellevue. From the outside, it does not seem like much, but the cuisine is suprisingly authentic. My boyfriend and I started out with an order of calamari; they were light, perfectly fried, and extremely flavorful. For entrées, we chose the chicken piccata and mushroom pappardelle. The chicken piccata was prepared a heartier, dark... More

The place knew they were going to be busy due to reservations, so why not hire more waitstaff? We were basically unattended. Appetizers came right away. Beet salad OK, red peppers and mozzarella was great. 1/2 hour wait until entrees came. Flounder tasted good but too many bones made it near impossible to eat. Pesto gnocchi goes down in my... More

Took my Mother for her birthday to this hidden away gem. When my brother visited in August we dined again on fantastic food. The fig appetizer with Gorgonzola and Prosciutto was just amazing. Simple, yet wonderful.

Nothing special. Except the smell of bad fish coming from the kitchen. The wine was good. We had a $12 glass each and left. Bring a fly swatter.

My husband and I went for dinner based on all the positive reviews we'd seen, and also due to the restaurant being in Richmond Magazine's Top 25. Service was great, wine list very affordable with an extensive selection, but the food was absolutely boring. We had a cheese/salami selection along with the bruschetta of the day, followed by a pesto... More

This beautifully prepared meal warrants a repeat performance during our next visit from California. The service was understated, timely, and friendly. Our young server was surprisingly knowledgeable about the wines they offer and suggested the perfect counterpoint to the eggplant and spaghetti entree we ordered. Everything from the extra virgin olive oil to the homemade tiramisu was bursting with flavor... More

My husband and I were looking for a new place to try, and decided on Enoteca Sogno based on reviews in the Richmond Times Dispatch. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My husband started with a cherry tomato and burrata salad, and I had the arugula with lemon and olive oil and fresh shaved parmesan. Both were of good size and... More

My wife and I took my cousins for a dinner meal. The setting is nice enough, although the signage is almost unreadable due to size and style. We had been before. After a quick rundown of specials, soft shells were 3 of the 4 choices. Lightly floured and cooked with care, they were presented. There was no sauce of any... More

We were searching for a good local restaurant on a weekend visit to Richmond. We read very good reviews of Enoteca Sogno so we decided to try it. We were certainly happy that we did. The wine selection was excellent and the food amazing. Great service was the topper of the evening. Make reservations and don't miss this dining experience.
