Italian
D.O.P. is a journey that started with a large family who immigrated from a small village in the heart of Italy in 1979. With them they brought the memories, traditions, and recipes of the old country. For over 14 years my parents operated an Italian restaurant in Ontario, and I watched them share these Italian traditions with their community while creating lifelong memories.

This journey continued when I moved to Calgary, inspired by my father I continued working in the restaurant industry. His legacy and my exposure to the diverse food culture in the city helped shape the concept of D.O.P. Being a second generation Canadian I want to honour both my Italian roots and Canadian upbringing by sharing our families’ recipes and adapting them to our Canadian landscape.

We are privileged to share with you the time-old traditions and memories of a family whose passion for Italian cooking created a legacy.

So, come on in, leave your shoes on and let’s make more

Enjoyed dinner here and it was fantastic. Food was amazing, neo-traditional Italian, wine list was extensive and delicious and the service was very attentive.
Received great suggestions for pairings and stand outs on the menu as well and can easily say we'll be back soon.

Great food and great service. The bartender made me some non-alcoholic cocktails which were awesome, my husbands negronis were the best he has ever had. The whipped ricotta and bread is out of this world. And the music playing was awesome. Great vibe!

Second time at D.O.P. Again it was a phenomenal experience. The food coming out of the kitchen truly is superior quality, the house wine is superb and the staff attentiveness is just perfect.

Because it is a small space, it did get HOT which is easily solved by wearing a T-shirt.

Good place with good food and a good wine list. Nothing here blew us away but was simply satisfactory. I dont think the value for what we got was worth it. If I were to go back I would stick to the PRIMI as it was great and better then the mains.

D.O.P. does not respect clientele who are conscientious of Covid. Half the staff including cooks, servers and bartenders were not masked. Too many people in a small space and you had to yell to be heard across the table. Decent food but overall not worth it. Lousy dining experience

D.O.P. is small but has nice ambience. Unfortunately we felt very rushed by our server throughout our meal. The dishes, while at times creative (burrata with peppers), more often than not lacked flavour (eggplant) or were expensive but not large enough to share (cavatelli). Owner Tony who seated us never returned to ask about our meal. Disappointing!

Went with my mom for dinner while she was in town. The server went above and beyond, had great recommendations and it was some of the best service I’ve had in Calgary.

Appetizers: grilled bread, marinated grilled eggplant & whipped ricotta. The combination of the 3 was excellent! The bread was light and fluffy, the olive oil on the whipped ricotta was great and the eggplant had so much flavour and wasn’t too mushy in texture.

Mains: Raviolo w/ red wine butter sauce & the Tajarin w/ guanciale & burrata. I’ve never had anything like the Raviolo before. It was an experience on it’s own. Hasn’t looked at the Instagram pictures before dining and was shocked at how large it is. The Tajarin was also very good, had lots of garlicky, chili goodness but the Raviolo was my favourite of the two.

Desserts: We had both desserts - the amaretto poached plums & the fior di latte gelato. The poached plums were great but I will definitely go back again just because of the gelato dish. It was incredible and I highly recommend not skipping dessert if the gelato is being served.

Absolutely killer addition to 1st street. Great wine list with plenty of value options as well as a deadly reserve list. The food was equal parts decadent and fresh, a perfect way to indulge. Service was super friendly - their whole staff was hilarious and high energy. Go here.

DOP is easily the best new restaurant in Calgary, and I don’t say that lightly! It’s simple food done incredibly well with top quality ingredients. Each dish we had was amazing, zero complaints. The server there (brunette female whose name I never got!) is SO lovely. She was funny, straight-up, and attentive - she even gave us an extra loaf of bread to take home with our leftovers, and if you’ve had their bread you know it’s basically a brick of gold. The ambiance is great and really good music. Can’t wait to go again!!

Food and service was great, but was disappointed to learn that you have to preorder the raviolo before arriving.

Hello Sheena, We do not allow guests to pre order the Raviolo, its on a first come first serve basis . We make 26 handmade Raviolo a day, sometimes we have enough for the whole night and other days they run out fast. Cheers,
