We booked a table for a mid-week date night and were not disappointed! We have been out of town for a long time and we’re thrilled to be able to come back to Villa Firenze. The staff are professional and friendly, the food is exceptional and the ambience is comfortable and reassuring. The specials are inventive, exciting and enticing. The wine list is extensive. Thanks, once again for an impressive evening.

Excellent food and a classy but cozy ambiance. We received complimentary bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar - a nice touch. Carla was our server, providing more than ample entertainment for the evening! We would go again.

Everything was good, food, service, atmosphere. A little noisy as we were seated next to a birthday party but otherwise a perfect Father-Daughter dinner with my baby girl.

One of the first dine in restaurants we have visited since the lock downs. As always the service is friendly and attentive. The food is of excellent quality and value. My wife had her favorite, the mushroom cap and commented that it made things feel somewhat normal again. The tiramisu was amazing, light and flavorful. Definitely one of our go to spots and we would recommend it to anyone looking for good Italian food.

Always an amazing evening with Villa Firenze.

We’ve been fortunate enough to be dining with them for years and are never disappointed with the exceptional regulars in the menu, that are complimented by the daily features.

Service is always top rate, and the owner is always present, touching base with her guests and supporting her staff.

If you’ve never been to Villa Firenze, it’s time to go. If it’s been a while, it’s time to go back. Villa Firenze should be a frequent dining experience.

We have been going to Villa Firenze for our anniversary dinner for the past few years and this dinner was exactly what we have come to expect. The food was great. The service was excellent! The final touch to the evening was the jar of homemade jam we each received as a thank you for dinning with them. And even though we are all social distancing due to COVID, our evening was a memorable one. We will definitely be back!

We eat here quite often. It was nice to see it was busy. This is one of the best restaurants in Calgary! The Food, Service, and Atmosphere are always good. If you have never been, I highly recommend it. Try the Portabello Mushroom appetizer..You will be hooked from there.

Enjoy

Our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised with Villa Firenze! The food was delicious - authentic, rich and very flavourful. We particularly enjoyed the Portobello Mushroom appetizer - a must try if you visit! Our waitress was delightful - well versed on the menu, professional and accommodating. We were also impressed with all the COVID precautions the restaurant took to ensure the health & safety of all guests and staff. We will definitely come back again!

The food was okay, but I don’t really have any complaints about that. What I wasn’t super impressed with is that we were on our honeymoon and they offered us champagne for our celebration. So we gladly accepted. They brought 2 mini bottles and said congrats and that they “would take good care of us today”. Sounds like free champagne right? Nope. We were surprised to see the 2 extremely overpriced mini bottles on the bill. Now, I’m never looking for free stuff, but had I known I had to pay for it (and for that price) I would have ordered a couple cocktails or some nice wine. So that wasn’t a great experience.

We would definitely recommend Villa Firenze to anyone who enjoys REAL Italian Cuisine!
We have been dining there for at least 30 years. Mama's Bread is the most amazing! The Portobello Mushroom Appetizer! WOW! Thre is no match for Joe's Culinary expertise in Calgary! The authenticity of the Italian Foods he creates are mouth watering to say the least. Pina is always a Most Gracious Host. We Love coming here for many reasons but best of all Villa Firenze has had the same consistency which we have not experienced in any other Restaurant. It is located in the Beautiful "Little Italy" area of Calgary that has remained the same since 1959.
