Great food!!

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

I am not certain how many years this Italian restaurant has been here but it is always consistently great food...! The waiters are professional and also have worked there for a long time and really know what they are doing so service is also attentive and professional... It makes me think of what a real Italian restaurant in Italy would... More

Food that is exceptional and well prepared, and has flavor you may like in the Italian city like system. This restaurant has been recommended to me and as a favor to myself I decided to go there.

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
