We had reservations for 3 for 5:45, I arrived early and was met with sour faces and it seemed to be a problem to wait outside, even though there were only 2 other customers sitting at outside tables. The food was very average looking and tasting and the waiter was not at all friendly or helpful, he acted as if... More

Le cibo et l'atmosfera era molto piacevole! The food and the atmosphere were very pleasing! I travel frequently for business and on most trips I am alone, so it is a treat when I find a spot that is so cozy, friendly and feels like a family favourite. Too often, as a single diner, I'm directed to a seat by... More

Maybe because we are used to eating Italian food in Italy or the italian restaurants are of a better standard in the UK but 3 of us ate here and we were disappointed. Pasta was over cooked and tasteless

Has lunch here few months ago that was good so looking for good meal out during our visit with our son. Again the appetizers, soup and entrees of spaghetti carbonara and seafood lasagna were excellent. Service was wonderful to us and the tables around us. Definitely will return. 👍👍

My husband and I were looking for a good Italian restaurant in Calgary, where to eat delicious pasta and we finally found it! Maybe Buon Giorno isn't a modernly decorated restaurant but for us it felt very Italian. We ordered as an apetaizer "funghi ripieni" and for main course "pasta feast", a dish for two which includes three kinds of... More

It's a tradition over the years to go when I'm in town. I haven't been there for many years & I think some of the other reviewers are right, it's getting a bit run down. It could use an update but when are they going to do it, it's so busy. Anyway, the picata & lemon that my friend had... More

I've haven't been to this restaurant in a number of years, so it's basically like going the first time. We took mom there to celebrate her 87th birthday,. The place hasn't changed at all over the years which may be good or may be bad. It certainly could use an updating. The food itself was just ok, by my standards... More

Dirty! I have eaten here before many years ago but must have been drunk from the wine back then as I do not recall this place being so dirty! I found a bug in my meal and when I alerted the waiter he said 'hmm, I don't know how that happened' no apology and he did not offer to comp... More

I have eaten here many times and am always completely satisfied. The minestrone and the Caprese salat are irresistible to me. The service is faultless, with some staff there for many years. The decor is undoubtedly outdated, but honestly, it's warm and atmospheric, and I'm afraid that if they mess with it, they'll ruin everything. I'm not there for trendy... More

This classic place still serves incredible food after all this time. I've celebrated everything from Valentines Day to our Family Christmas Party there. Consistently delicious - best scampi EVER. I wonder if, considering the swanky location, it's not time for some modernizing in the decor? There will be those who will say that could ruin it and "if it ain't... More
