My wife and I found this gem for our 9th wedding anniversary date night. Service was amazing! Food is fantastic and mouth watering. The portions are very generous. Everyone is so friendly and the staff are on the ball and willing to go above and beyond. Very classy!! This is now a spot we plan to go to on a regular basis. This is hands down an absolute must visit when in Calgary period.
Bon Appetite

If you are looking for Italian food, this is the place!!!
We felt we were in Italy and not in Calgary for those 3 hours we spent at this place. The ambience, the music, the style and of course the food!!!
This will be our go to place when we need a taste of Italy going forward!

We booked for mothers day which of course is on Sunday and our favorite restaurant is normally closed. Must have the Portobello mushroom appetizer with Brandy sauce was amazing as always, we had the Pasta special with veal and the Risotto special with shrimp and Scallops. Both were done in exquisite rose sauce. Desert was an amazing chocolate cheese cake and two cappuccino's

Service was excellent, it was ab it noisier than normanl with all of the younger children for mothers day

Outstanding food and service at Villa Firenze, as usual. I have been here many times and will continue to go back because the food is some of the best, most authentic Italian cuisine in town, and the staff always do such an amazing job of making you feel at home. I highly recommend Villa Firenze.

This was our first visit as a couple. There was obvious tension amongst the staff and we were left sitting for about 10 minutes before a server came to our table, even though we had said it was a special occasion. The food was good / very good although one entrée was only lukewarm. We thought it best not to bring it up with the server as it was obvious the staff were having an off night. We'd probably wait awhile before making a return visit.

As always we had a wonderful experience at Villa Firenze. Does not have the flash of the new restaurants rather the quiet ambiance is of another generation (in a very good way). The food is unmatched and Italian with everything made from scratch.

Took our 14 year old son for his birthday dinner and Ville Firenze was everything we could ask for. Delicious home made pasta, tasted so fresh and authentic. The service was so friendly and family like. It was a very hot evening and unfortunately the air conditioner was not working so it was very warm in the restaurant and my son was feeling a little unwell from the heat. Our server was very caring. Both our teens are not mushroom fans but they both loved the portobello mushroom appie. It truly is to die for. Don’t miss trying this gem of a restaurant in Bridgeland.

We had a lovely time at Villa Firenze yesterday. We had a retirement lunch for our colleague of 12 years and all the food was excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable and informative when giving us the lunch specials, wine options, etc. He was very personable and professional. A great time was had by everyone.

Have dined at Villa Firenze several times. This time it was very disappointing. Ordered Penne Arrabiata with Sausage... It came with no sausage. Had to order club soda three times before it was delivered. Very little attention from server. Too many other choices of places to dine to risk a repeat of this lack of service and attention to details.

Make no mistake about it. This is the best authentic Italian Family and Chef owned restaurant in the City. I would rate many of the special dishes on par with Cioppino’s in Vancouver for those of you who know what this means.
