It's been about 3-4 yrs since I've eaten here and it seems to have gone down in quality. We brought my 88 yr old mother here to celebrate her birthday. I ordered off of the "pasta frenzy" specials which go on sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. I ordered the fettucine supremo which comes with smoked salmon, and scallops in a light... More

Went to Chianti twice on a recent trip to Calgary and on both occasions, the food didn't fail to please. The salads were fresh with good balance of meat and veg, dressing was lovely. Service is attentive and wait staff on both occasions friendly. The soup I had was certainly yummy.

My rating of this restaurant is possibly unfair as both my daughter and her boyfriend said they liked their food. Ok, that said, we went to the menu for the wine by-the-glass and found a malbec which was barely adequate. My wife and I shared a chicken parmigiana. The chicken was alright but I've had better spaghetti opening a can.... More

Some dishes are better than others but you cannot go wrong on Pasta night (Sun, Mon or Tues). Service was good.

We were in town and met some friends here for dinner one night. Sad to say, but the only good thing about the meal was the bottle of wine, and that was $52.00. This is not the Chianti of years ago. Seems it has slipped down the food chain. Our meal had no taste or flavour. It almost seemed to... More

Great foods, great price, great Service. I think of it on par with olive garden but a fraction of the price and a more home made feel. Great experience and service in a packed restaurant.

On a visit to Calgary a few weeks ago, we took our family dinner as our treat to thank them for their hospitality. The restaurant was crazy busy, and we found out later that Sunday nights was pasta night where all pastas were cheap. But we had reservations so we were fine. First impressions was that it was a cozy,... More

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.
