Excellent food and service. Nice to be able to bring your own wine (with corkage fee). Great atmosphere and patio. Staff were attentive, and even went as far as to offer blankets for those of us sitting on the patio when the wind picked up. We’ll be back for sure!

Very average food in a really lovely setting. The chef needs to taste three offerings, add some flavour and elevate the food which is bland visit after visit. The quality of ingredients is good, but portions (of pasta) are on the small side, bread is not offered at lunch and the peach caprese salad had just 3 tiny slivers of peach. I love the idea of this place but it is suffering from being a captive market - people will come no matter what.

For a respected Italian restaurant, everything was very good except that it seemed to take a little to long to get the food to the table, and the noise levels in the restaurant were surprisingly loud. The decor (while attractive) does not provide any sound muffling properties. The food was delicious and the portions were excellent. All members of our party left very full, happy, and satisfied with the experience.

Another great meal at Italian Farmhouse! We met for lunch prior to going shopping for an acreage with our most excellent realtor, Sharon Bayer (who we highly recommend!!!) and we’re happy to find some new items on the menu. Be sure to check it out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!

We were celebrating a friends special Anniversary. The restaurant was very busy July 1st. But they did there best to accommodate us when air conditioning vents were too cold for us.Food came out a bit uneven temperature wise but again they did their best to redo the food that was not up,to temperature.
Food was very tasty ..salads delicious, main courses generous portions and very tasty.
Would definitely return but not on an extremely busy day.

Made the reservation a week early then they tried to seat at our time at a high top table in front of the bar (where you would think walk-ins would be seated. We were able to get that sorted out finally and had dinner at a dining table. Restaurant should be specific if the have a variety of seating options.

My family and I love this spot. It has a wonderful patio, lovely decor inside, and the food we've had there the several times we've been has been really great! I also love that there are some young people working there, local kids, maybe, who do such a good job! It is definitely a neighbourhood gem but it is also worth the drive. In fact, I was recommending it to a store clerk in the north-west part of the city just this morning! I have also bought gift cards for teacher, as a year-end thank you. I think that a trip to the Farmhouse is quite a treat!

Amazing service. We had reservations and were seated right away. Our waitress was very personable with just the right amount of attentiveness. The food is incredible and even the fussiest of us were impressed. We will definitely go again. A very pretty drive from Calgary along highway 22X.

We went on Father's Day and had a party of 5. This was our first-time to the Italian Farmhouse. But it will definitely not be our last. We had Aranchini ( deep fried risotto balls)for starter along with their lovely bread. I had the Pollo and it was absolutely amazing. The other four members of my party also thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. We also ended up having dessert. I had the cookies and cream which was very nice. Their wine selection was very lovely. We had the most fantastic server. Bridey was our server, she was prompt friendly, knowledgeable and we never left wanting. Perfect Father's Day supper 🙂

Always nice to go back there, well worth the drive from Calgary or anywhere for that matter. Pamela and Joseph know how to make their guests feel welcome and very much at home. More importantly, the food is to die for. Pick anything on the menu and you will not be disappointed. Tasty, nice portion, a beautiful and very clean restaurant. Pride in ownership is felt all around at the Italian Farmhouse. My daughter while visiting Calgary never misses the opportunity to go back once or twice a year to celebrate their wedding venue that holds so many great memories. The Best!

This was our second time dining & it was even better than before. We had spent a cool rainy day at a horse-jumping event and found out cozy corner table perfect. The women chose the salmon which was cooked to perfection with yummy accompaniment. Our friend had the stuffed pasta shells. My husband had the crab & lobster ravioli again... which he enjoyed . We all found the portion size generous without going overboard. Attentive, friendly staff made for a perfect meal.
