Great food!!

The food was awesome; very authentic Italian pasta. Very crowded and noisy on a Saturday night and parking can be an issue.

Wednesday evening, and as usual----full! Service was hasty but efficient. Ambience still colorful and authentic. House reds and white wines are perfect peasant menu pairs. Bruschetta is always yummy----pasta fresh, and the veal dishes will stand up to any in town. Most desserts are house-made and delicious. Love the street-side patio----parking available in the back. Overall, and in one word----... More

This is the most authentic Italian restaurant I have been in for a long time. It seemed like a family business because of the low key attention we received, and the laid back but very serious attention to guests. With an outdoor patio on the busy 17th Avenue, it also has dining room areas that are well kept and separated,... More

Wait staff was excellent on one of their busiest nights of the year. The calamari in spicy tomato sauce was unlike the typical calamari with tzatziki but equally as good and a popular dish there. Veal asparugus was equally as amazing. The cream sauce was delicate but rich and flavorful without relying on spice for the flavor. Asparagus was perfectly... More

While visiting family in Calgary there were many other Italian restaurants we could have chosen but I am glad our choice was this one. We had to wait to get a table as the restaurant was packed and I can see why now. There were four of us dining and not one of us were disappointed. The atmosphere is buzzing... More

Felt like we were in the old country while eating here. Quaint interior, efficient server (not very friendly), and wonderful food. Four different dishes and we each shared a bite to check out their offerings. Everyone meal was delightful and offered in a simple presentation. Pasta was a bit dry but expect they do that in Italy. I know we... More

Simply put, Buon Giorno is one of my fave restaurants for Italian cuisine. Bit of a throwback in terms of decor, style and service, but in a good, retro- traditional authentic sort of way. There's a noisy European vitality to dining at Buon Giorno that always pleases me. Of course the bottom line is that the food is consistently top-notch.... More

We discovered this hotel while walking along 17th. What a great choice! My son had the Spaghetti Carbonara and loved it. I had the lamb, which was divine. My only complaint was the lamb portion was very small (which is why I'm only giving this review 4 stars). What we loved was the excellent service and the ambiance. Our server... More

We decided to try their specials at $18.00 each. We had a large salad consisting of greens, tomato, cucumber and vinaigrette dressing . The veal came with either pasta or vegetables. The plate was delicious and looked scrumptious. The only problem with the stuffed large shell pasta with ricotta cheese and spinach in tomato sauce was that there were only... More

Overall, I enjoyed the experience. The waiter was very friendly and was polite. I had the veal chop with pasta and a salad starter. The food was well prepared and the price was reasonable. The atmosphere was pleasant with many couples and groups of all ages. I'll definitely dine there again.
