We enjoyed the restaurant a great deal. A menu was very good although a couple Italian favourites that were not there. I don’t live the sweet balsamic in the Bruchetta. I just refer the more salty, garlicy flavour. Although the presentation was beautiful. Calamari was excellent and the sauce very good. I would like to see a more expanded Italian red wine list. I had the stuffed shells and that was a very tasty dish.

Jade was amazing, and the chef was even out checking how the meals were. We are a family of four consisting of 2 celiacs, 1 adult and one 7 year old and all their entrees are GF and they have GF pasta for the kids. It was a great place for a everyday meal, or especially a date night (hubby and I will be back sans chillens) it was a really good restaurant that gets dietary restrictions!!

The setting was amazing. Both the men in our party chose calamari and then linguine with seafood. The calamari according to both men was the worst they had ever had. It was so tough it was like eating rubber. The linguine also had some calamari and was tasteless. The ladies however had great food, gluten free pasta with chicken and mango and shells stuffed with spinach, ricotta & chicken (not gluten free). The chocolate mousse was divine.

It was my second time and was very much looking forward to introducing others to the spot. The risotto balls were amazing, cheese bread delicious.
The bread that came to the table with oil and vinegar seemed stale. It needed to be warm. Not enough oil and vinegar to go around.
Main meals of kids pizza, veal, ravioli and tortellini were very tasty. The black olives in tortellini dish could have been left out.
Service was ok nothing special.
We got there at 5 pm on sunday and it was nice and quiet by 630 pm it was so loud we were thankful we were done. Thank you.

The only down side of our experience was the loudness of other diners talking and lack of noise suppression in this building. We could barely hear each other talk till other tables started clearing out.

Upon arriving we were greeted by a young man that was very professional. We were immediately seated despite arriving earlier than our reservation time. Our server arrived shortly after and introduced herself (Brinkley I think was her name) explaining the menu etc. She was most friendly and efficient. She took our orders and offered suggestions. Our drink orders arrived and shortly after our appetizers arrived. The bruschetta was amazing, so full of flavour. The deep fired risotto balls were also very good. Our main dishes arrived in a very acceptable time. The salmon done to perfection, the short ribs so tender and flavourful as were the pasta dishes. We also had dessert, no complaints here!! The Lemoncello cheesecake :o amazing!!!
A great dinner, outstanding service and nice ambience. Definitely worth the drive.

A lovely late Sunday lunch here was the highlight of the recent holiday weekend. We did the nearby Fullerton Loop walk and then visited the Italian Farmhouse. We'd heard good things about it, and it is proof that if you build it, customers will come.
Superb food, service very good (albeit a bit slow on food, but worth the wait) and interesting ambiance.
We will be back, for sure.

There were 4 of us for dinner last Sunday evening.
We had a great table on the extensive patio protected from the sun by a
large umbrella.

We ordered a Caesar Salad for our appetizers & it was delicious!
Crisp, fresh lettuce.

All of our different Entrees were freshly prepared, hot & incredibly yummy.
Gnocchi with Pecan Pesto Sauce & cheese, Spaghetti with sliced peppers & juicy pieces of
chicken, Tortellini with a light cream sauce x 2 = 4 happy diners!

Dessert was the Chocolate Pate ( OMG! ) & the Limincello Cheesecake with fresh blueberry
sauce & whole blueberries. Both were punched with flavour.

Our server was an efficient & engaging young lady - Briddie. (sp)
who was knowledgeable about the menu & cocktails.

Definitely worth the pleasant drive from Calgary.

We’ve been regular customers of this restaurant for years & our guests have
consistently enjoyed the dining experience of The Italian Restaurant & Bar.
