We went here for Valentines. It was very busy. Our server was good but he had a lot of tables to look after. Our food was good and hot. We did wait a bit for dessert and our bill took quite a while to get.

Attended forValentines day. Reservation at 5 pm second couple to be seated when restaurant opened. Server was pleasant, prompt, and informative as to menu.
Appetizers were very good. One entree came out hot and ready to eat, my entree came out luke warm and had to be sent back to be heated up.
Price was reasonable but slightly more expensive compared to similar quality restaurants.
Overall experience and value was good.
I would recommend this restaurant.

The food, the wine, the service, the ambience and the entire experience was just wonderful! This may sound cheesy but I felt the love that went into the food. The service was friendly, and professional. I felt like they really cared about the guest experience. I had the cheesecake at the end. It was light, creamy and just the right about of sweetness. What a great evening we had!!!

Fabrizio was an awesome server. Knowledgeable and clearly very experienced in caring for dining guests, we enjoyed our business luncheon thoroughly. He always appeared at exactly the right time, was very efficient and made great suggestions for our consideration. I will definitely return and be happy to share the experience with friends, family and anyone who is looking for a great spot to dine! Thanks a mil!

One of the best Italian restaurants in Calgary no doubt, operated by a family that obviously cares. Unfortunately because we were not ordering wine/drinking the waitress became very disinterested in providing good service, it was extremely noticeable the table across from us received 5 star service as they were ordering wine etc. Our waitress became very nice and helpful when she was presenting the bill, that was pretty much the only time she showed any interest. She would leave while you were in mid sentence asking something about the menus, unbelievable! Out of courtesy to the rest of the staff that might have benefited from the tip I gave a very good tip, had the service been adequate or as good as the food I would have tipped to the max.
