PZA is a fun and creative way to use the word Pizza. It is clean, vibrant, with a branded aspect that will be repeatable and a common staple in the restaurant community. As I start my new family and become older and respected, PZA will grow with me, my family, you and your family, and will become the Pizza place that we grew up with (the place our parents took us for a good time).



Parlour will play a smaller role yet is key in the name to define the concept of the restaurant. The word "Parlour" being as old as pizza itself is defined as business that specializes in goods and services. The goods and service that I know and specialize in is pizza and tradition. The parlour aspect brings suggestions of my tradition to the restaurant, checkered tables, green carpet, wicker wrapped wine bottles, and my Nonnos passion of creating pizza and making customers feel like family.

First time at PZA Parlour, and the food was very tasty, but I felt the Gnocchi plate was a little small for my big appetite! The pizza was amazing, very good size for one person. The ambience is very pleasant, the lights on the roof and the other decorations are very romantic. Prices are not cheap but not overly expensive, I'd say its premium casual dining. Service was great! Will definitely come back.

My favourite Italian restaurant to bring my friends, or family to. Great food, the ambiance is incredible & the staff are always so friendly. The chilli oil is delicious! All of the pizza’s are amazing, and the specials are great too!

It was not too busy the night we went and out service was excellent. Food was good, we tried three different pizzas and an arancini appetizer. The appt was good but could use even more flavour in the tomato sauce and maybe just a little less breading but still good. Some pizzas I liked better (the one with more meat). Loved the decor and ambience except for the metal chairs at most tables.....very uncomfortable. Simple thing to change.

Tried an entree instead of pizza this time and it was good. Service was adequate but not overly friendly. Food and service was fast and efficient. This place is a go to for me when I need a fast, tasty, cheat meal. With the entree I had, I really didn’t have a cheat which is good!

We regularly go to PZA Parlour as it is easily one of our favourite restaurants in Calgary. This night we brought some friends with us as after us talking up PZA so much, they wanted to try it with us. The crew at PZA did not disappoint. The food and service were top notch and I still swear the Alfredo is the best I have ever had. You will be disappointed.

The service was not great and at 530 pm with only one other table seated our food took an hour. Thankfully the food was really good but likely wouldn’t return because of the wait.

We were sat beside a drunken office party group that had moved from the private area to beside the bar. Other patrons to us the group were louder and larger before our arrival. Seating us elsewhere would have been the smart things to do. The group was loud and often using fowl language with no admonishment from staff. I hyped up this place to my visiting family. They left disappointed.

When we went there was a Christmas party that had just poured into the main dining area. There was lots of yelling, and profanity. The food took over an hour to get to our table, and even then their was mistakes to the orders. Refills on our drinks were missed and the place wasn’t 1/4 full.

Pizza dough was not cooked. Very doughy. Sent it back & it came back doughy again. Sent it back again & they remade the pizza. Guessing the oven had been turned off early & wasn’t hot enough to cook the dough.

Food was good but took a very long time to come from the kitchen, which would be fine if we didn't have a kid with us. We got there at 7 and food came it after 8, so it didn't seem to be a super busy time?

I have been a number of times before and have always enjoyed. This time it wasn’t the same experience but it probably won’t deter me from returning. Service seemed a little disconnected with two people attending to us. Although I didn’t time it, it seemed like the food took extra long to come out. Pizzas came out at mouth burning temperature. I ordered a different pizza than what I have in the past and some ingredients were crunchy hard and lacked flavour. It won’t be one that I order again. The pizza dough is still great and the overall casual atmosphere is nice for conversation. Service was attentive enough that we didn’t do without at any point.

We had a great experience at PZA Parlour, however the service took very long. We had reservations at 6pm and we were there until about 9pm. Our server was great, and we received one of our desserts free of charge. Other than the long wait for our food, we enjoyed our experience at PZA.. We would come back again.

Gnocchi is home made and very good. The calamari with hot peppers was outstanding (wish there was more to the serving). The pizza is outstanding and the crust is exceptional, probably one of the very best in Calgary (if you like chewy, then crust - home made).

I met a friend for a Saturday lunch at PZA and we were able to choose a perfect spot on the patio to enjoy our meal and visit. There were plenty of options for comfortable seating for both small and larger groups, so will keep that in mind for future visits! We each had the red Sangria which was on special and found it to be a very tasty choice for a sunny patio lunch. I had the Rizzuto pizza and it was delicious. It was enough for lunch plus leftovers for later. My friend had the Caesar salad with chicken, also very good and generous serving size. To finish off we chose a cappuccino and a latte instead of dessert but there appeared to be some very tempting choices on that menu - again, will keep in mind for my next visit. The service was great, and our server was very friendly and helpful. No hesitation in recommending PZA as a dining choice!

Service was good. Food was pretty good. It took them about 40 minutes to prepare my Alfredo because they forgot to make it???!!!!! Since I was just on my hour lunch break, I only had 10 minutes to eat.. The pasta could have been cooked a little longer as it was still a little under cooked. I probably will not get their Alfredo anymore, wasn't the best. Their pizza were pretty good.
