Just being real and true to what Calgarians should expect from a great Italian restaurant.Nick & Pina Ricioppo arrived in Calgary in 1968 and have been proudly serving authentic Italian cuisine ever since. After a brief retirement, they were pulled back by their desire to share their passion and to feed Calgary’s dining public with the real Italian food they crave.La Casa d’Italia – Classic, Authentic, Italian.

Casa d'Italia has closed. Tripadvisor needs to update its listings. We tried to eat here two weeks ago. It is now a sports bar called Nicastro, which is also unlisted in Tripadvisor. There should be a way for reviewers to alert Tripadvisor to situations like this. I saw a button on the Tripadvisor website for noting closures but not on... More

I attended this restaurant for a friends wedding. The staff were great, the food was awesome and the patio area couldn't have been more fitting for a wedding. I would love to go back and eat off the regular menu sometime soon. Thank you La Casa d'Italia Ristorante for making my good friends day extra special.

We had planned a w/e in Calgary and based on the reviews here, we reserved at La Casa. Warmly greeted at the door and shown to our table. My hubby and I shared a Caesar salad and the scampi. Excellent! I had the lamb chop special and he had Vitello Marsala. Both excellent dishes, beautifully seasoned and accompanied by roasted... More

Even though im Hungarian.... Wow, have been there twice with friends. I had the same main both times, Penne Putinesco (spelled wrong sorry). It contains anchovies, and im allergic, but no worries, everything is made to order. Pasta cooked to perfection, that dish is just the most wonderful thing to hit my belly in years. I ate the entire plate.... More

Did you know they offer a limited Take Out service? This arrangement worked great for our family as we had a busy evening but wanted well made Italian food. Two kinds of Spaghetti, a penne pasta, and veal dish and we were good to go! Pick up was quick and easy. More importantly, all the main dishes were still warm... More

We chose La Casa from its Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed! The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. My husband and I love Italian and are pretty picky about our Italian restaurants. We never thought we would find an excellent Italian restaurant in Calgary but we did! The owners and chefs came to Calagary in the 60's... More

had a quick dinner Penne and meatballs, wanted spicy sauce which was not so, they had dried chillies for that added heat. Sauce was taste paste was a little over cooked but eatable. Servers where professional and very attentive, I would return based on the service alone. I would try a different dinner on my nest visit.

Hello and thank you for your comments, we really appreciate your taking the time to write! We're sorry you didn't "feel the heat" with your pasta - spice is something that's so personal and tough to gauge for each guest's taste. My father has dried his own chilies and we found they were far too hot for most of our... More
