Great service and a nice ambiance. Quiet too.

Too many restaurants we avoid because of the acoustics.

My party spent over $400 at the restaurant and had two $50 bottles of wine and was charged for pop refills!!!!! Are you serious? Spending that kind of money and you can’t even thrown in a pop refill

We come for dinner on date nights and before every Broadway across Canada theatre performance at the Jubilee.
This has got to be the best Italian Restaurant in Calgary.

My pasta was supposed to come with calamari and scallops in it(we specifically asked) It was missing the scallops completely and had one squid. We told a server right away and saw him inform our server. She didn’t come to our table for 20 minutes even though there was only four other tables in the restaurant. Then she acted like he didn’t tell her and I was offending her and lying when I asked her if she could just make a few scallops to add to the rest of my dish that I was packing up. She looked at me and said ok but that’s going to be 20 to 30 minutes. And the seafood is pre portioned so it’s very strange you didn’t get scallops. In the end I opted out of not getting the scallops because I was afraid of what they’d do to my food since obviously she was not happy. She did comp our coffee and desserts but I was insulted and the experience was not pleasant. It still cost $180.00 for three basic pastas bruschetta one large stuffed mushroom and two glasses of wine. I didn’t look at the bill and I go out alot and I’m still not sure how it was that high. We would have to be paying $30 dollars for each pasta and appetizer. Best part of the meal was the mushroom. Big disappointment and extremely insulting

Food was DE-lish! Very accommodating. Daily appy (AWESOME stuffed Portobello ) and Caesar was too much so they adjusted for us and we got both. Service was excellent and the timing of our meal absolutely perfect. Reasonable prices and very nice wine choices. Perfect evening. Thank you🤗

The food was amazing, just how we remembered.
Our server was busy with a large table so another server stepped up and took our orders. She was really sweet and helpful, apologetic about taking so longhand for us having to wait.

There was no-one at the coat check when we left, and so we had to get our own coats, we waited for 5 mins and tried to make our presence known.

Usual good food. Unfortunately wait staff were a little disorganized. All 4 attended to us. Owner/manager noted we were ignored often but did give us a complimentary dessert! Linguine was overcooked. Rest of meal was pretty good. Thanks

We have been coming to Villa Firenze sine 1995 we always highly recommend to friends and family.
The service we got on New Years eve was just amazing let alone the food. We have never had a problem with the food or service. We will keep returning.

We had a wonderful meal last week with good friends. The mushrooms were amazing as always as well as our individual meals. The suggested wine was superb. All in all a great night even though it was pouring rain (in December).

Food was okay. Waitress very rushed. We had to ask her if we could purchase the wine instead of individual glasses. She passed and cleaned table across the table instead of going to each guest. Almost knocked over a glass of wine.
I would recommend to others only because I think if it wasn’t such a busy time the service and food would be better.
Very loud until most of the guests cleared out.

Food was very ordinary. Chicken Limone was very unappealing on the plate - served completely white as if it had been poached and then slathered in a white sauce. No finesse, sophistication or presentation sense. My table mate's veal was similarly swimming in sauce. Unappealing and out of touch with today's preferences. Any minor change to a menu item - for example, substitute a white sauce for a red sauce on the side pasta - was met with upcharges on an already pricey entree. First course salad special was way overpriced for what it was and the olive oil did not taste fresh and delicious as it should. The environment was old-world charming, but the cool and unwelcoming service and food quality didn't live up to the promise of this longstanding neighborhood haunt. Very disappointing.
