This was our first time going to Villa Firenza. I liked that people were dressed casually or a bit dressier, without feeling out of place. I don't usually believe reviews at Italian restaurants as my husband grew up in Rome and his expectations are pretty high; which has resulted in being disappointed. Not this time, though. Dinner tonight was the... More

We decided to try this place based on website recommendations. The food was very good as it was stated by other reviewers. We had a fettucini dish and a veal dish, they were both flavourful and tasty. The problem was that apparently you need a reservation to dine here. We didn't have one as we thought since we arrived at... More

A hidden gem, a bit out of the way but worth looking for. A small intimate place. Evening did not start very well, the owner or owner's son made an issue of us being 15 minutes early for our reservation, he was a bit pretentious. Otherwise, a fantastic evening of food, wine and great service. Our server was very attentive... More

We stopped in for lunch. The three pasta dishes were excellent. The meatballs were tender with penne noodles and perfect tomato sauce. The lasagna and spaghetti were also delicious. This is another of Calgary's best places to eat.

It isn't even on the menu. If you're a regular you just know to ask for it. So good and always check to see if Mama has been in lately because her raviolli is "orgasmic! "

I was here with my business guest who recommended that we go to this restaurant for some authentic Italian cuisine. Fabrizio is an excellent server. He helped us chose the best appetizers, the best lunch menu and the dessert. Unlike some other Italian restaurants that I have frequented, this one is good authentic cuisine with the right choice of meats,... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant, but I am sad to say that the service has gone down hill in the last year. I used to recommend it to friends all of the time, but won't be anymore. Knowing it was my favourite, my husband made a reservation for my birthday about a month in advance. He asked for... More

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Villa Firenze the night before Valentines Day. The chef had a few specials just for the occasion and although I have a garlic allergy, he adjusted my meal for that and it was delicious. My husband did enjoy the full version of the chef's special entree and praised it. The service was wonderful and... More
