What a fantastic place. The space was rich, intimate and comfortable and the service was outstanding. Courteous, inviting and quick. Then comes the food, it was absolutely wonderful. The flavours were lush and well defined. Perfectly cooked pasta served with perfectly prepared shellfish for one and for the other, a perfectly cooked rare steak with perfectly prepared seafood and vegetables. For dessert, please try the Tiramisu. If you've ever seen that TV commercial about the guy tasting peanut butter like it was the first time he'd ever tried it, well, the Tiramisu is like that. This place might put a dent in your wallet but it's worth every penny. Highly recommended if you can afford it and if you can't it's worth saving up for.

Lamb, shrimp, scallops, tiramisu. Everything was perfect! Violino is offering take out service during the shut down. Great option until the doors open again. Thx for everything Adrian! You & your beautiful team do such a great job of taking care of everyone. God bless you all. Merry Christmas. P

I took my sisters to Violino’s for a birthday celebration and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service was excellent and the food was lovely. The ambiance was quiet which allowed us to visit without shouting at each other. I would recommend this venue as first rate.

Violino is always fantastic. The service is warm and professional, the food is predictably delicious if you order from the menu or order one of their daily specials, and the room is elegant. Highly recommend this spot for a special occasion or just a night out. They’ll treat you like gold! #BuyLocal

The evening with my daughter was perfect! We were warmly welcomed and safely seated at a distance from other diners (although there were very few). From the beet salad through entree (Osso buco and surf and turf) plus amazing desserts including a complimentary cheesecake we left full and happy. The service was excellent including a few extra “treats” that was just the icing on the cake. Thanks so much. Will return when we are next in Edmonton

I have been looking for a restaurant that is quiet and romantic. Violino is perfect. You can sit across from each other and even if you talk quietly you can still hear each other, nothing worse then trying to yell overtop the other customers.
Now the food was beautifully made and the wait time is not too long and plenty of choices from appetizers, the main course and of course the desserts.
We will be coming back again!

We had most of the inside dining area to ourselves, was a big plus to privacy and quiet and the ambience.
Service was good, no complaints.
Had a birthday dessert on the house, bonus for that.
Soup, suppli, bread pudding were all very good. entrees were good, but nothing to write home about.

Would definitely come back.

4 of us dined on the patio on a recent weekday evening. Other than a few wasps , our experience was excellent. The halibut special and the pasta special entrees were outstanding! Our server was attentive to our needs.
It was a perfect evening.

Service and server was great. Our table was thrown together just off the main hallway so location was not desirable. Crab cakes and risotto balls were just ok - seemed too perfect to have been freshly hand made. Drinks were pricey. Short rib was good. Desserts were ok - again don’t think they were homemade at the restaurant.

Best patio experience in town. The level of service is always very excellent with a personal touch from Adrian. You have to try their Fettuccine Tavolino when you seating inside the restaurant because they use a wheel of cheese to mix your pasta & sauce in to take the flavor of the melted cheese. Try keeping room for dessert because it's delicious with a good variety to select from the menu and if you want to share, you can have a plate with a portion of all of them. The restaurant is very unique for the architecture and the location is very quiet with a private parking lot. They can organize private fonction occasions with large group on the second floor. I highly recommend this restaurant for the personal level of service you receive from the General Manager and servers.
