The best pasta and drinks I’ve ever had. The drinks were perfect! Both my friend and I never felt pressured by the servers to leave so we talked for hours and talking about life. This is what we need in restaurants

Cardinale is one of the best local Italian restaurants. Their menu is always updated based on the season and what can be found locally. The service is prompt, professional yet causal so you feel comfortable. Their wine and drink selections are impressive. We can’t wait to go back again.

Love this place— went for my anniversary and had to come back later with a girlfriend. Pro tip: arrive at 8:30pm and order appetizers before a late dinner ;) those who know, know.

Every dish I’ve tried is amazing — best carbonara I have ever had.

We went here to celebrate our engagement and Hannah our waitress made the evening absolutely wonderful, the food was super yummy, the drinks were gorgeous (they even have one to support a local charity!) and the rest of the staff was so kind. It’s a super cute, quaint little restaurant and the ambience felt cozy to us. Thank you for making our night special, we’ll definitely be coming back when we’re in the city! :)

Everyone in our group loved both their drinks and food. And even though it was very busy our server took very good care of us and we didn’t at all feel like we were forgotten. It was the first time for everyone in our group to eat at Cardinale but there is already talk about coming back

Excellent food & really good service - thanks Taryn! My wife has a serious allergy & she was very conscientious. The Bucatini, Gnocchi & Pappardelle were all delicious. Couldn't stay for long but will definitely be back for a full feast. Highly recommended & great value for money.

Overall great experience. Service was quick, waitress was attentive, drinks were pricey but good, pappardelle, lasagna, and mussels were excellent and the portions were perfect. Great spot to grab dinner before a Flames game.

Usually, don’t like to write negative reviews, so I will simply say, we were so disappointed with our entire experience at Cardinale, compared to all our other dinners there. Too bad.
