This is by far the best Italian restaurant I have been to. It has an excellent atmosphere, classy decor and unmatched service, and authentic home made Italian dishes. All of the pasta is made fresh in house, the portions are huge and an excellent value (my pasta provided me 3 meals, I could barely make a dent in it!). I... More

This is truly one of the best places for Italian food in Calgary. The best, in my opinion. Their pasta is phenomenal, and although they don't have carbanara on the menu they always make it for me and it's AMAZING! Have had other things as well, just had their sea bass and it was delicious. Ask, or hope, you get... More

We visited this restaurant in our new neighborhood because it was walkable and recommended by my sister. She used to live in Calgary and said it was her favorite restaurant 15 years ago. We booked the table the same day so i guess that's why we were seated right at the rear where everyone entered the kitchen and the bar.... More

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
