A very homey, smaller restaurant

Decided to stop here for supper because I had a craving for pasta. We were sat beside a really nice fireplace that wasn't too hot. The food came out quickly and it was tasty. We also decided to order the tiramisu and it was amazing.

"Looks like they've been here for a while" This is what my colleague and myself said to one another when we saw this place. In Calgary on business, we ventured onto 17 Ave SW on foot. There was Buon Giorno. The decor, not changed since a long time ago, was to me a testament of a long standing love affair... More

If you want lousy Italian food served by some of the most obnoxious servers Calgary has to offer then this is the place for you. Oh yes, if you want to have a conversation, best go outside where you can hear yourself think.

Just a random restaurant we came across. Food came out REALLY REALLY fast. Too fast that we thought it was microwaved. We got out main course to go. When we ate it back at the hotel it has no flavour. The service was okay. It was so loud in there. Could not hear my partner speaking at all. Which is... More

Linguine Pescatore - My bf and I were just casually looking to have dinner. Best decision ever, the food you can tell is cooked from scratch. The sauces excites your tastes buds. Even though they were quite busy, our waiter did do a good job of making us feel well attended. The buns served were fresh. I would definitely go... More

Went there for a special occasion. Loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding. The service however was quite disappointing. Our waiter must have had a bad day or so. He forgot several things, got our order wrong and we had to wait a while for our orders. He kept apologizing, but that doesn't make up for the large bill... More
