The carbonara is amazing! Best I've had outside of Italy! The focassia bread is also a MUST order, so good!
The half price pasta after 9pm is an outstanding deal.
What an amazing meal.
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
Great Food, Pasta was amazing! Service great and fun! Will be back on a regular..
AMAZING . A must try. Order it all. Squid ink pasta was great.
Excellent experience and service will 100% come back!
Wonderful, cozy and great service.
Great place for small reunions, or a date night.
Hopefully the menu brings back the mussels.
Incredible service and amazing food! The atmosphere is great!
Absolutely great food and great overall restaurant.
Food and drink fabulous as ever. Our server Andrea provided exceptional service despite a busy section. Highly recommended.
Excellent Italian food and very friendly service. What’s not to like.
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
Perfect spot before an event at the Dome. Awesome service, great wine, and food ready so you aren't late for the game. Our meals and appetizers were all excellent. Always a great spot!!
Great food pre Flames game. Place was busy. Timing was good to get to the game. I’d go back on any other day. Great pasta!
Great service and excellent food
Excellent pasta, great service and nice selection of Italian wines.
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.
great atmosphere, just the right level of noise and buzz.
excellent food, attentive staff, and a great rotating selection of cocktails.
The service and the drinks & food were amazing! It was quite loud in our area, we could barely hear each other, it was a great experience and would definitely go back.
We’ve been meaning to dine at Cardinals for quite some time. We will definitely be back soon. Great food and atmosphere, amazing friendly and informed staff.
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.
“Go to” restaurant for Flames game nights! Great food and atmosphere. Love the new warm kale salad….
Excellent dinner, best kept secret in Calgary!
Food was good and prices reasonable
Food was amazing. Staff were fantastic. Inside was loud but we moved outside and it was quieter.
Great service good food didn’t have the QR app as yet but apart from that perfect night
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!
One of my favourite places to eat. Great food, ambiance and excellent service.
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!
Always amazing, we were in a bit of a hurry and the server and cook accommodated for it with ease. Thank you!
Place was very noisy. Very hard to have a conversation. Place was too dark to read the menu.
Exceptional winw, food, and service once again by Graham and his team... David treated us very well and had some marvelous wine suggestions for tonight and next time as well. Could not have been better... THANK YOJ !!!
Blake and Graham took excellent care of us - awesome (Small) menu which I like. All excellent choices and I want to go again and try everything
A wonderful place for special occasions! We love both the food and cocktails!!!
Great food and drinks. Server was fantastic. Overall a great night.
Not our first time at Cardinale and definitely won’t be our last. As always, great service and great food. The drink menu seems to be getting even more creative and the food was delicious.
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.
