    Service by Crystal was fabulous. She was very attentive without being intrusive. Focaccia was super. I feel the house salad could have had a zestier dressing but I like flavourful salads and this one was very bland. Wild boar chops were beautifully seasoned and tender. Arctic char special was very enjoyable. The filet was generous. Roasted potatoes and grilled veggies were decent. Wine we chose was terrific. All in all a good evening.

    The food was less than par….. from appetizers to mains, the food was boring and under seasoned. Ambiance was nice, service was good, just the food was lacking.

    Love. Chef Daquisto always turns out great food. One of the best Italian restaurants for gluten free options. The cheesecake is gluten free!

    This is our second time here in two weeks. We were looking for a new place to try and I am so glad we found Alena Rustic Italian. The photos don't do it justice, the interior is really beautiful and it just has a great vibe. From the moment I walked in and smelled that wood-fired oven I was anticipating a great meal, and I was not disappointed. Week one I had pizza (the veghead) and my husband had pasta - the chef's special - and both were outstanding. For our second visit, I had pasta - Alena's Little Ears - and hubby had pizza (Pep Mush) and both were again excellent. Both weeks chanterelle mushrooms were featured, and we added those to our dishes for an upcharge - totally worth it in my opinion. Both weeks we started with the marinated olives and focaccia. It's pretty hard to go wrong with focaccia but the olives are spectacular! The service is attentive without being annoying (no "how are the first few bites tasting" which is appreciated!) and the dishes are nicely paced. I also appreciate the dividers between the tables, that separation makes your dining experience a little more private and safe while still having a nice view of the room. I hope they keep them. If you are looking for a place with a warm, cozy atmosphere, great food, and excellent service look no further. We will be back soon!

    The service was excellent. My only complaint was that my meal was not hot enough. Our server did want to take it back and have it reheated. Did not want my husband to have his meal to get hold. His meal was piping hot…. Will return and give it another try.

    Great food and service. Menu is a little pricey with cheapest red wine at $53. The only thing of negative note was in the appetizers. We were 2 people and the galic knots came with 5 pieces, and the carpaccio came with 3 crostinis. Would be nice if they have even numbers for sharing.

    We had such a great experience! The food was perfect, service was amazing -they even accommodated our odd requests no question asks! We actually liked the plexiglass screens - it provided a little bit of privacy you wouldn't otherwise get in an open restaurant. We will definitely be back !

    Our service was exceptional last night. The food presentation was top notch and the presentation was suburb. The main meal portions were surprisingly large. I cannot express how attentive, professional and knowledgeable the service was. We will be back and we will be telling all who we interact with.

    I must say that this meal was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. The pizza and steak we had we’re excellent. I’ve never had a steak recently that was cooked perfect and melted in your mouth with tons of flavour. The service was excellent overall. I will definitely be going back for other meals in the future and will tell my friends about this restaurant for sure.

    We went to Alena for our 20th wedding anniversary. Service was great, Greg(manager) was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Recommendations were great! We had ordered tasty appies and the entrée were good too. They enjoy gave us 2 complimentary champagne to help celebrate the occasion, we couldn't finish our bottle of wine, so ended up taking rest home. Overall from ambience to service and food, I would recommend Alena for Italian food! Thank you, we had an amazing experience.

    Went for the 1st time and was really impressed. We sat on the pub/breakfast/dessert side. Everything was just lovely and the food was great. I did find $13 dollars a cocktail a bit high but they were delicious. Great for meeting friends/family or a date night.

    We were a party of four. Two were in town from Connecticut and I have Celiac Disease. Alena’s did Winnipeg proud. We were all raving about our dinner. The server was exceptional and the food outstanding. And they took special care with my food sensitivities. Thanks so much, Alena’s, for a wonderful evening.
