4 of us went for dinner to celebrate a birthday on Friday night In point form here's my review - the server was very friendly and helpful but was really interested in up-selling. We didn't want drinks before dinner and we only wanted one bottle of wine. - two of us had veal with peppercorn sauce. It was very good.... More

We had friends from out if town visiting for the weekend so we thought we would use trip advisory to find a new place to eat. We stumbled upon villa. We were not quite sure because it was down the list a ways. Boy were we shocked!!! Why oh why is it so low down the list. The atmosphere was... More

Our party of 5 were here for my daughters 17th birthday with my 86 year old mom. We came because of the excellent reviews here and other sites. Unfortunately, our experience wasn't in line with these reviews. The major issue was my mom had ordered the scampi and when the meals came she was served sea bass which 2 others... More

Headed to Villa Firenze for my birthday dinner. Wow! They pulled out all the stops. Restaurant interior is intimate and divided into a couple of sections. (also note there is a large banquet area at the back of the restaurant for private functions) Everything comforting about Italian food and great service can be found here. The menu is extensive and... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant where the pasta is homemade in the kitchen and the ingredients are fresh and local. Service was good but the place is a bit noisy inhibiting conversation. Great clams in white wine sauce and terrific al pesto over fettuccine

Reminiscent of a furniture show room with uncomfortable seats, it generates a high noise level even when less than full. Our service was good, but the food was quite bland and average. Typical of Calgary, it's very pricy for what you get.

There were four of us for lunch on a cold January day. We arrived shortly before noon and there were only a few people in the restaurant. The service was attentive throughout the meal. Two of us ordered the daily special (a type of crepe) and two ordered the stracciatella, which had a subtle taste but was not particularly warm.... More

The owner waited on us personally and there were at least 2 others to make sure our glasses were always full. Appi's ordered were the bruschetta which was amazing!, the olive oil they used was so fragrant and full of flavour and the portobello mushroom in cream sauce which I was assured was also amazing. We tried the special which... More

We recently had dinner at Villa Firenze. Overall the food was solid but standard Italian fare. Nothing special, and in fact the pasta on some dishes was over cooked. Not such a bad problem, except that we were paying top dollar. The bill was $300 for 4 people, and we only had 3 glasses of wine and no desert. To... More

Went here last night to celebrate a friend's birthday. We arrived with reservations at 7pm and did not leave until after 10pm. I would suggest reservations as it can get very busy here. The food and service were both top notch. It has been many years since I ate here. This is high-end Italian cuisine. Yes it is expensive but... More
