    I booked this afternoon tea to take my daughter out for a treat. When we arrived it was so busy and our table was not ready. When we were taken to our table it was not ready and mistook us for a table of 6 even though there was just us two standing there. We waited again and finally got to our table late. We got our tea and cakes and left to our own devices. We did not speak to anyone again and I had to flag down our server to get me a box and tell her we were done. She brought the box and I expected to get the bill at that time. We waited for 30 more mins and still did not see her so I got up to ask another server if I could pay, she said she would get our server. She didn’t come and then 10 more mins went by and she showed someone else to the table next to me and I tried to get her attention but she looked away and went back down stairs. I got up and went downstairs so I could pay. Our server was on the till helping someone so I lined up for 10 more mins and another person on the till asked to help me so I explained I wanted to pay and she said sorry you will have to wait for your server. I got back in line and waited for the customer in front to be done and when I finally got to the till my server did not acknowledge my long wait or anything. It was 50 mins from the time I got the box till I paid and left. I realize the place was busy but paying $40 per person for this tea, I would have expected better or at least any service. If you don’t have the staff to look after these afternoon tea customers then you shouldn’t be offering it. I am very disappointed in what should have been a lovely afternoon spent with my daughter.

    We love afternoon tea and Alforno has a lovely one at a reasonable price! Lots of tasty bits with a good variety of flavours and textures. We only wished that the tea selection was better. Besides that, service was good (we didn’t expect much because it was a busy afternoon there), and the room was bright and airy. Not a traditional tea house, but we appreciated the fact that we were seated in the back corner under the skylight!

    This was a wonderful meal, pasta was very fresh and tasty. We came in for a rather early meal and it was quiet but everything meal wise was perfect I just missed the amibiance of a louder cafe, hopefully the pandemic brings people back in droves

    When you receive the the email of the confirmation of your reservation you get access to the menu, but it doesn’t match the actual menu in the cafe which is much more limited. Also, the servers are not very professional, unsure of themselves they don’t always know what is available. But the overall impression of the place is pleasant, you just have to know what to expect.

    This definitely is a niche restaurant in Calgary and a relief from all the steak places, which offer Veggies fake meat substitutes full of fake fat, blood and gristle and only suitable for carnivores on a health kick, these days... ( The days of the textured bean burger are numbered and these gruesome replacements are going to be the only thing on their menus in future...). Anyway away from that rant... Minimalist and chic with excellent, attentive helpful staff who were not in your face all the time. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and were accommodated without fuss... I had the pear and gorgonzola Ravioli, which was delicate in flavour and rich and filling in content. personally I would have upped the gorgonzola content but I'm weird that way.... Mrs B had the squash pasta which gave her inspiration for future home cooking.. Dessert selection was superlative, though i stupidly went for the Tiramisu which came in a plastic cup with a lid makingit look store bought and wasn't as exciting as the real bakery stuff they had in the display fridge. I was too lazy to go and look so that's my own fault.... Wine was good value. I just had the house white and it was pleasant, dry and a nice quaff. Didn't taste like the cheapest hock they could find and was up my street for a casual drinking wine. Only concern was that we had a starter but were only part way through when the main course arrived.. at least though they didn't whip the starter away, which I have had done elsewhere! Prices are a wee bit on the high side, but again in this time of inflation they probably need it to survive. I would recommend it as a change from the boring old chains which unfortunately remain ubiquitous throughout Canada More power to their independent elbow!

    Second time being here. Food was fine, I do think the portion of the carbonara I had compared to the price was not enough. Service was poor. Our server, although friendly, did not check up on us anymore after food was delivered to our table. Even after eating, we waited for atleast 15minutes for our server to come, but we ended up just standing up and coming up to her to ask for a to go box and the bill.

    Decent pizza. Unfortunately, our pizzas were a bit underdone, making for a doughy pizza.
