The atmosphere was amazing, we went on thanksgiving Monday and it wasn’t too busy.
Our servers( sorry names elude me) were the best I have experienced for a long while, the appetizers, salad and beef rib Ravioli were spectacular, I had the New York Steak and it was Ok.
The Flambé desert was delicious and prepared at our table, they even comped it.
My daughter had recommended Bistecca as she has gone a couple times
I would recommend to others. I would go back just for they way we were treated by staff alone.
We had a great Anniversary Dinner.

Love Italian food so this was a good choice. The service was excellent and the ambiance was great. We were here for a get together with friends so this place was perfect. It was quiet, there were no children, nice place for adults, able to hold a relaxed conversation. Will definitely come back and will definitely refer friends and family.

We enjoyed the evening. The food and service were absolutely superb. The quinoa salad was very tasty; it had the right accents. Both the lamb and Arctic char were done to perfection. The service by Deborah exceeded expectations; it was most professional.

The lighting at our table was a bit low. Besides being able to read the menu, diners would also like to easily identify the contents of what they are served.

We liked the comfortable , quiet, and relaxed atmosphere; we would return without hesitation.

Very enjoyable evening. Delicious food and a great wine suggestion from our waiter. Reasonably priced. Love the little bites. The mushroom risotto was excellent, especially with the poached egg on top. One in our group had the flat iron steak and loved it. Great service.

Celebrated a 38 yr wedding anniversary Fri evening. The food was outstanding! We have eaten here several times in the past as we live close by. Have had several business dinners here as well with out of town associates and has always been well received. My wife had the pork tenderloin and I had the flank steak on recommendation from our server Gary. Gary was both knowledgeable and personable and helped make it a great evening! He made several great suggestions on wine, food that were excellent. All around great experience!

The only negatives (please don't get upset out there!) of the evening was there were some noisy kids and crying babies. There were also a number of patrons quite poorly dressed ( shorts, ball caps, torn jeans etc) When you are out for a special evening in a fairly upscale restaurant you would hope people would dress a bit better!

Excellent restaurant that I would highly recommend!

We were looking for a restaurant that was open for dinner on Labour Day, as that is a special day for us. We made the long 25 minute drive to south Edmonton and we were not disappointed. The regular menu as well as the mushroom festival menu were both available and the varied choices made it difficult to choose. We both had appetizers and main courses which filled us so that we could not have attempted dessert. All four dishes were well prepared, well-described in the menu and by the server and delicious.
The service was excellent although there was a bit of a delay getting the bill due to set up for a large group the next day. Service, other than that was attentive and although there were a few other people in the room, it was quiet and good for conversation.
This is a restaurant that values ambiance, great wine and serving excellent Italian food and steaks.

Everything was fantastic, and we tried it all! From the wonderful warm bread with garlic dipping oil to the fantastic desserts and everything in between. Service was impeccable - friendly and perfectly timed without being overbearing. This was our first time at Bistecca - it's been on my list for a while as we've always enjoyed Sorrentino's, and we will definitely be back.

My wife's gluten free pasta was very good. My arctic char was tasty, but very salty. The sodium content must have neen through the roof. I assumed it would be a healthy choice. Service was great, as usual, and overall good experience.

The tiramisu and creme brulee were popular. Food was wonderful - very tasty & presentation was appealing.

Bistecca is a great neighborhood restaurant, that is worth the trip from neighborhoods that are further afield. Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere. Varied menu, with two seafood additions this month. Often has specialty menus, including summer celebrations. Even with menu changes, they keep a few of the favorites, for comfort and familiarity. (Shrimp in gorgonzola sauce, for example.) Food is fresh and well-presented. Portions are appropriate. The entrees focus on meat - beef, lamb, buffalo, for example - but there's an adequate selection of seafood and vegetarian. I can't comment on vegan menu choices.

A reliable and good dining establishment.

Mother's Day bruch was absolutely wonderful. The chefs went all out - from the pastries to the hot entres to the amazing dessert table, with lots inbetween. We had a late seating and were pleased to see that all the dishes were constantly being refilled. No lack of food for us late comers. My two favorite dishes were the butternut squash ravioli c/w brown butter and sage and the melt in your mouth duck confit with sour cherry reduction. The service was outstanding, not over the top, but very attentive. We will definitely be returning.
