A truly excellent dining experience, oh that was in the past. Last visit was less than stellar. Menu , value and food was lackluster. Noticed a large change in the last year , change in ownership? One has to wonder. In this day of mass layoffs you would think a business would lower the price point. That was not the... More

Great bustling atmosphere, service is very good. Very popular restaurant with a great menu. After all is done and wine included you will be a couple of hundred down but with a smile on your face. I will say that their portabello mushroom appy is among the very best. Do try!

I do not know what has happened to this once classic Italian restaurant. The decor is nice and the atmosphere is homey. The food quality and service has dropped off a lot. The veal Parmesan was not very good and the lasagna was interesting to say the least. The overall service was adequate but not what I have experienced in... More

This restaurant has been around for almost 30 years, so they've been doing something right for a long time. It is near downtown Calgary, with parking in the rear. Inside it is cozy and comfortable. The food is very good. Service is friendly and personal. We would recommend it. Reservations needed for dinner.

Our first time at Ville Firenze and our group of four totally enjoyed the restaurant.... the ambiance, appetizers, entrees and service were all first class. Toni the owner/manager was our server who was outstanding. We recommend and will, without doubt, return.

Villa Firenze was not busy on a Thursday night, making it an ideal quiet dining space in which to converse with friends. The service we received was excellent. The food was decent but nothing special and the quality and lack of imagination do not justify the hefty prices. Total bill for four was close to to $400.00 (appetizers, mains, bottle... More

I reserved a table here to celebrate my Son's 21st Birthday. We arrived and were seated by a charming lady, whom we later found out was the owner. Our waiter came promptly and was engaging and humorous. We all had the Portabella mushroom appetizer which I will remember fondly for the rest of my life. Our Server was both attentive,... More

We love the portabella mushrooms. They have them almost all time, but not on the menu. We took the special, scallops and scampi pasta and a lemon veal, not on the menu. Service was top notch. The scallops were smaller but there were a lot of them, very nice. Portions are a good size, took some veal home. Topped it... More
