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 roll 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.

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).

We had veal which was a bit overcooked so it was quite crispy and not as good as the last time we were there.

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.

We were one of three tables on the patio so very quiet but lovely patio setting. We waited a long time for drinks which ended up coming after our appetizers arrived with an apology as the drink my husband ordered directly from the drink menu apparently had to be remade by the owner as the first one was not correct so maybe they did not have a bartender on that Saturday night.

Quite noisy when place is busy,and especially for the first hour of our time there when a young child was screaming periodically. Fortunately, they left which was a relief.
Waiter forgot to get 2nd beer for one of our party - had to ask twice.
We all loved the pizza.

The 7 of us had a great time. The patio is amazing and has more ambiance than the restaurant. It did start to rain while we were there and we were quickly moved into the restaurant with a table set up for us quickly. Everyone loved the food and the noise level was perfect. We were all able to talk together without too much background noise. The gnocchi is fantastic. I've had it three times. The donut dessert was loved by all of us. Absolutely a great place to eat.

We enjoyed celebrating a family birthday at PZA Parlour. We each ordered a different pizza and everyone in the party was very happy with their choice. The drink selection was very good, and gave us an opportunity to sample some new cocktails and beers that we had not tried before. Our server was very attentive and made great suggestions. We dined on the patio and found it to be a perfect evening for an outdoor dinner. The noise level was quite reasonable even though there were many other diners, some in groups, surrounding us. Would highly recommend PZA Parlour and am looking forward to my next visit.

I remember Stromboli's from years ago and loved their pizza. I know there's a family connection PZA and it shows. The pizza was really really good. Also loved the arancini - so yummy. We also had ordered the bruschetta and the calamari - both good. We were with my grandchildren who are teen girls - definitely we ordered too much food but it was easy to take home. Our server was lovely. The restaurant was very noisy - it was a Wed evening around 7 and there was a rainstorm so the patio wasn't open. Maybe that accounted for the noise. The noise level is the only reason I gave the restaurant 4 stars. I'd definitely go back.

The food as usual was amazing, plus it’s half price bottles of wine on Wednesday’s and they’ll let you take them home if you don’t drink them. Unfortunately our waitress was having a bad night and did the best she could but things just didn’t go her way and all our individual bills were mixed up. Would return anyway as this was a one off.

Tonight was my second time at PZA. The food was excellent both times. Tonight we order two orders of arancini which were delicious, the zucchini chips were also very tasty. My wife had a Caesar salad which she seemed to enjoy and I had a pizza to myself and I must say my overall experience at this restaurant has been very pleasant. They have a nice patio and the staff was very friendly.

All of the food was quite tasty. Our table shared a Caesar salad, the Sei pizza, and the Pasilla PZA. The only negative of the experience was that our server was very slow which didn’t make sense because it wasn’t that busy. We had to ask to have our water refilled numerous times.

We always love the food and that’s why we come back .
It would be nice if we are not asked so many times how the food is. The only reason we go to selective restaurants is that we are not asked. Trust me - If the food is bad we will tell you. Dining has to be a experience, interrupting our conversation and asking a million times how the food is is very annoying. Also if the plates can be taken once we finish our meal that will be nice. It is rude to take plates when one person is eating and the other is finished. Wait for everybody to finish their meal then take the plates.

This restaurant exceeded our expectation. Our waiter, Tyler was young, so surprised me about his wine knowledge and recommendation. Loved the wine he suggested. He was very friendly, thoughtful and efficient. We loved our pizza and felt it rivaled some of the best in the city.

We were also surprised by a lovely gesture from management to commemorate our first time.

Would definitely go back!
