“Great Surprise...”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just received new windows 8 phones and decided to try out the urbanspoon app to find a place to eat in Calgary. Our kids had heard of this place and it was highly rated and easy to find on 17 Avenue in Calgary. We ordered an appetizer of prosuito (duck) over a strong flavorful cheese and you dip it in corse salt. Delicious! We then ordered two pizza's, Marguerita, Prosuito both with a fairly thin crust and their own unique tastes. Very good and flavourful...Waiter was very helpful and even explained the name of the restaurant to us...Una means "a" pronunced "Ah" in Italian apparently. A great find and only wish we had more time to try some of the wine selection.

“It was... ok.”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We decided to pop into Una to take out a pizza on a Friday night. The place was packed with many people waiting in the front area since they don't do reservations (what's up with that?!).

We ordered a prosciutto arugula pizza. It was quite flavorful to say the least. However, I found the pizza too greasy for my liking (for some reason, they used a different kind of prosciutto and cooked it up on the pizza; which normally isn't the thing to do since prosciutto is added after the pizza has been made along with the arugula). Anyways, their crust was medium in thickness (texture seemed pretty typical like BPs but thinner) but it didn't have the texture like Famoso's (thin, slightly chewy, not tough). It was also odd that when we got the pizza, all the arugula and fresh parmesan flakes were piled in the center of the pizza and no-where else.

I don't really get what the hype is all about (even at 1030pm!). They're pricier than other places ($17-23 per pizza) whereas other places like Famoso only max out around $15 for a better quality pizza.

“Favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is my absolute favourite restaurant, I go here at least once every couple of weeks. The atmosphere, people, and most importantly the food, are amazing. I could live off of the Persian dates and kale Caesar salad. Goes perfectly with a glass of Scarpetta Pinot Grigio!

“The Fungi Is My Favorite”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The mushroom pizza is amazing and make sure you ask for a side of chillis in oil. Great red and white wine list.

“Good food ... If you have time to kill.”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Great place to enjoy a pizza and glass of wine. Can be so hard to get a seat because they do not take reservations! I have showed up a couple times and been told the wait is one hour. I love the food but choose to go elsewhere now because of this inconvenience.
