Italian food freshly prepared

The serving staff were very helpful and guided our choices. Very flavourful, lots of choices and not at all heavy.

I had been several times in the past, it was my friend's ?? birthday and I wanted to take her somewhere special she had never been. As she is a gourmet cook herself and someone who eats out at lots of great places, that can be a hard thing to do. She loved it !

This is one of my favourite, truly Italian restaurants in the city. They make (most I think) their food from scratch, and it is simply delicious! This is much better than a chain Italian restaurant, although a bit more expensive. It's worth it though!

Venture into this restaurant that generates constant good reviews from fellow trip advisors. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. The food is delicious and of good portion. Love it.

We held our wedding dinner at Villa Firenze. It was absolutely perfect. The staff looked after every detail and made sure every guest was completely satisfied. The meal was impeccable. The flavour combinations were superb! All my guests raved about the meal. I can't recommend this restaurant enough!!!

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! "
