Enjoyed a very tasty meal at Antonio's Garlic Glove Restaurant on 4th Street. I had the Linguini Pescato with lots of seafood including many mussels. My dining partner ordered the risotto and described it as very flavourful. Serving sizes were just right and our waiter James was pleasant and attentive but not overbearing. It is a small friendly restaurant and... More

We live in the neighbourhood and have eaten here several times. The food is always excellent and the service is really friendly. The mussels as an appetizer are amazing, with a creamy garlic sauce great for dipping bread in, Monday nights are half price wine nights, which makes for a really reasonably priced dinner. Even though everything here has garlic... More

Discovered this restaurant last night. Had a great meal starting with Garlic Pork Dumplings with a bacon sweet and spicy sauce! A delicious and unique presentation. Next I had the Blue Penne....A heavy cream sauce with blue cheese, Dijon mustard and roasted garlic! Awesome! I must admit, I was drawn into the restaurant based on the sign outside, "Our Food...

How every dish including the after dinner chocolate has garlic. Not just a little, lots of tastey little cloves everywhere in everything. Friday night out with some friends, rack of lamb special was a big hit with one of our diners. Pasta, not so great for another, two picked the pork and I had the salmon. Pork roast was enjoyed...

As a vegetarian, there wasn't much choice for me on the menu (there was one or two things). However the owner went out of the way to prepare me my own dish off menu which was greatly appreciated. Our diner party requested a wine that was sold out, so the server actually ran to the liquor store to retrieve it.... More

As the name suggests there is garlic in almost every dish! So you have got to like a bit of garlic to come here. The garlic in some of the dishes we had was a bit overwhelming so it was nice to have a dessert at the end with no garlic. I would say that this is an ok restaurant... More

We rang in the New Year over a scotch with Tony after a delicious meal. We started with Pongy Prawns and Spicy Prawns as an appetizer. One of our friends wanted a mushroom appetizer that wasn't on the menu, so Tony whipped something up for her. We enjoyed Rack of Lamb as our entrée. It was a full rack, which... More

It was difficult to give this restaurant a correct rating. They scored 5 for service, ambiance, decor, promptness, accommodation. And in our menu choices, one of our appetizers was outstanding (the Garlic Pork Dumplings - incredible dish), but the other appetizer was very disappointing (Garlic Clove - baked brie in bread). My meal of Tiger Ling pasta was delicious shrimp... More

Just stumbled across this little restaurant on a visit to Calgary. We had no reservations but our waitress was incredibly accommodating. There was a large party that came in immediately after us so she made sure that our order went in first. My friend and I both started out with the garlic soup. It was very tasty but heavy and...
