The carbonara is amazing! Best I've had outside of Italy! The focassia bread is also a MUST order, so good!

Excellent as always. The meatball appetizers, gnocchi dish and fettuccine dishes well as Amarone wine, all suggested by Graham, were sensational. A great dining experience

Wonderful, cozy and great service.
Great place for small reunions, or a date night.
Hopefully the menu brings back the mussels.

Friendly and very knowledgeable server helped us with our food and drink selections. First time I tried gnocchi and it was the best meal I had ever had. So fresh and just the right amount of spice. The drinks were unique but very good and refreshing. I would highly recommend. And it is a nice short walk to the Saddledome for a Flames game

My Dad went with his friend before the Flames game and he said he was extremely disappointed in the service and the food. He said the service was not good and the ambiance was too loud and not enjoyable.

It was soooo loud it almost hurt my head. I wish it was quieter. The music was loud so it seemed like everyone was yelling over the music to talk to each other. Our server was pretty much yelling at us whenever she was talking to us because the noise level was so loud. The food was good! But the noise level was almost too much. I’m sure I will be back tho but hopefully the music isn’t as loud and the noise level is a little quieter.

Atmosphere was great. Seating in the covered, heated patio was fantastic on a calm fall evening. Our server Taryn (whom had served us before) was attentive and offered great suggestions.
Food came out quick, hot and very tasty. Every bite was delicious. Highly recommend!

Everything was amazing except for the hostess. She was irritated with how long it took me to find my vaccine proof ( I had it, just phone was acting up for a minute) and kept saying “ what” and staring at us while we were saying we had a reservation. She seemed grumpy. We all have bad days but we felt unwelcome.
Waiter was AWSOME!!!! So nice and knowledgeable. Food was 5/5…so good. Best calamari I ever had.
Neon light is really bright, ask to sit away from the window.

The food was delicious and the service good. The challenge this particular night was a table of 6 people who were extremely loud. Them, plus the loud music played by the restaurant, made the evening unpleasant. We had to leave asap because our ears were hurting. I guess that's the challenge with being placed in a small room with a noisy group. But kudos to the kitchen for producing such delicious dishes for us!

Overall dinner at Cardinale was good. There were some issues with the food - the pancetta in the gnocchi was fatty and the panna cotta was not set - but overall it was delicious. Our main server was great and she was very helpful however they had an additional server bringing out food who did not know which seat numbers we were or what dishes he was bringing out. We ended up at a table near a large group who were very loud and made it hard to hear.
