A real gem I’m South Edmonton. Our male waitwhile adequate certainly didn’t add anything extra or special to the evening. The last time we were at Bistecca, our female server was outstanding.

We were there for early supper (530pm). Bread and oil brought to table with drinks. Nice warm bread. Ordered mussels and asked for more bread for sauce. Mussels were tasty, wonderful sauce. Had to ask for bread again as they were baking new batch (restaurant was empty). Appetizer was amazing. Ordered seafood linguini and spaghetti bolognaise. Pasta dishes were hot and well cooked, a little bland though - not awful but not special. We were early so there was a lacking atmosphere. We were asked a total of 5 times how our food was, server and manager. Nice to check in but a little too much. Probably because it wasn't busy. Good location, good beer and friendly service, just not blown away.

I thought that informing them that we were there for our 25th wedding anniversary that they would be a little more accommodating or would make it a bit more special for us. It was blah 😔

Funny how the table across from us even got a visit from the chef and got a special drink with sparklers and all. I was disappointed.

While the menu looked promising, the experience was less than ideal. We had a server in training - which I can totally understand as a food and beverage manager myself. However, she didn't get much help despite us being told 2 people would be serving us together. We ordered more bread and it never came. Our entrees had clearly sat under the heat lamp too long as the buerre blanc sauce on the steak had spoiled before they arrived - the steaks were also all overcooked (more medium than medium rare as they were barely pink at all). After eating here, and having different plates and ordering different dishes, 3 of us had upset stomachs. The only thing we shared was the bread with olive oil/garlic which could have been rancid... but we did not have a great night following dinner. The food was overpriced for the experience given.

Was taken there for Father’s Day. My daughter had the kids pene pasta and she loved it. My wife had the smoked cheese ravioli and it was good and my son and I had steaks. They where cooked perfectly. Very friendly staff

We had the grilled calamari and smoked salmon for appetizers. I found the calamari to be a little spicy, but more concerning was that it was too chewy which good calamari shouldn't be. However, the smoked salmon was very nice ----- very tasty. Our main dishes were the house made bison cannelloni and the stuffed chicken breast, which were very good. I did find the options for wine (by the glass) to be a little thin with little choice in any of the wine categories (i.e. chardonnay, etc. ). Overall, we would certainly go again.

We went to Bistecca for our 4th Anniversary and it was some of the best food I have ever had. It is pricy but totally worth it. The Calamari is AMAZING to say the least. Will definitely be back!

Highly recommended. Have been several times and am never disappointed. Always treated well by all of the staff and the food is very good. The short rib ravioli is one of my favourites. The atmosphere is cozy for a friend get together and/or romantic if that's the occasion.

We like Bistecca. It is a natural choice for dinner out alone or with friends or for special occasions, and it is nearby for us. Gluten-free meals are handled well. The restaurant has well-trained and pleasant staff.

Food was amazing, we were there celebrating a very special occasion, however our server seemed very disinterested in being our waitress. She immediately asked us to put in our order as she had a “19 top” getting seated and wanted our order in first. No hello, no how are you and then seemed annoyed that we wanted to start with wine and appetizers. Our salad and meal came out simulateously. Very inattentive to us in general in what appeared to be a 1/2 empty restaurant. We were a table of 8 and spent nearly $500. Although the food was great, the service really put a damper on a very special occasion. That being said, she wouldn’t have known we were celebrating as she was not interested enough to ask much at all. Overall, Bistecca needs to ensure they actually hire servers that want to be at work, she clearly did not!

Brought a friend who had never been. We had some appies and both had the veal scalopinni (which is what I always have) and it was delicious. as usually. My friend thought so as well and cleaned her plate. Absolutely scrumptious

Birthday dinner for my mom. 7 of us went for dinner. Calamari plates too small for the price. The rest of the food was very good. The service was terrible. No coffee offered or more drinks after dinner. The waiter spilt some red wine on my mom and didn’t offer free dessert or anything. The bill took too long to come.

Our original server took a while getting our drink order.
Order our food from and never saw him again. We ended up just asking someone who walk by if we could order another drink. She was nice and did check on us again.
We were confused as who would get the tip.
Food came way to fast for fine dining.
And we were never offered a dessert menu.

Ambiance was as expected of a fine dining restaurant. Food was of good quality and well prepared. Service was friendly and the restaurant kindly paid for a drink as a birthday gift which was a nice touch. Would return for sure. Expect to be charged a premium for dinner as this is fine dining.

Great food and service. The free corkage on Wednesdays is the absolute deal-maker. Bring an excellent bottle of wine from your cellar and it feels like you are getting the meal for half-price. Highly recommended on all fronts.

Our waiter was attentive but delivery of food was aweful. We were there two hours before the main curse was served. They could have used more cooks and servers on this night. It is no reflection on the server but on the management who totally underestimated the demand.

The food was fantastic, the wine was enjoyable, and the ambiance was comfortable. We enjoyed the tall, private booth. Our wait staff was pleasant and attentive (and answered my many questions🙂). We appreciated the quiet environment and the relaxed dining pace (we didn’t feel rushed). I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we plan to come back soon.
