Nice Italian restaurant, friendly service, abit dark in décor but has a cosy feel. If you like Italian you wont be disappointed. Will probably go back here on my next trip to Calgary/Edmonton. It's on a main street and pretty easy to find. Recommend to anyone who wants a reasonably priced Italian meal, with quick service.

Great place for pasta and a glass of wine. Reasonable prices. We frequent the one in the northwest and have never been disappointed. Even the red house wine is acceptable. Not and huge wine list but serves the purpose. Never had to send a meal back and have been there more than 20 times.

So-so food, so-so service, so-so ambiance. This is an OK place for a no-special occasion meal, but not a place that I would ever go to celebrate an event. The food is really mediocre - not very fresh, not especially flavourful and certainly not inspired.

Our group attended here for lunch during our stay. The staff was quick to provide friendly service, and the selection was broad. They give a basket of fresh rolls to start, and refill once the bread is gone! The pasta/bread meals taste as good as they look. Price matched quality...a great lunch!

Good Italian menu, relaxed atmosphere. The Macleod Trail location has just had a major renovation. The 'all-you-can-eat' pasta nights are a great deal, but bring a big appetite!

Another one of my spontaneous trips landed me in Chianti's Restaurant on this occasion. The experience met and went beyond expectations.

When I lived in Edmonton, this was a popular eating spot. Still can get my favorite spinach salad and fettuccine Chianti. Love the crusty buns. Great place for lunch or dinner.
