This used to be one of our favourite restaurants. We were disappointed with the food we had on the weekend and we have been going to this restaurant for approximately 18/years. The bread served prior to the meal was not fresh. I had the lamb and it was definitely not up to their standards. Also the potatoes were luke warm. I doubt that we will ever be back to this restaurant. Such a shame !!
Great place for celebrating a special occasion.
Extraordinary time! We went for a quiet family birthday celebration. All was delicious and a wonderful time.
Always a treat dining at this restaurant. Adrian and the staff always make you feel welcome and are very accommodating with special dinner requests. Fabulous patio if weather permits. Great spot for important date or celebration. Cheers.
We chose to visit this restaurant after a recommendation came from a friend. We wanted somewhere romantic and new for our 1 year wedding anniversary and this place did not disappoint. We made a 6pm reservation for Saturday evening and the restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived but did get busier. We were sat in a corner so noise level remained fairly quiet. I’m a huge seafood fan so we started with the seafood platter and everything was delicious. The scallops and shrimp were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The mussels were LOADED with clam sauce and the calamari was wonderfully delicious and crispy but not greasy and heavy. Chefs pasta special was a seafood fusilli in saffron cream sauce, came loaded with big shrimp and mussels, unfortunately only 2 scallops but otherwise the dish was incredible. My husband had the half rack of lamb which came with 5 bones!! It was cooked exactly as he had asked and it was delicious. We each ordered a dessert: creme brûlée and tiramisu and we were also given a lava cake complimentary for our anniversary. It was a lot of dessert and it might’ve been nice to just have one of our ordered desserts gifted but we were grateful for the gesture. The wine and cocktail list was immense. My husband had an ounce of scotch and I certainly would’ve loved to try one of the house wines by the glass but I’m pregnant. So this means we will have to go back! We loved our meal and look forward to our next visit.
Amazing food and service! This is our new favourite place for a romantic dinner. Can’t wait to go back.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Awesome service.
We went for our daughters birthday. The food was amazing and large portions. Service was wonderful. The setting is very quaint...we loved it. Will definitely be going back.
Staff were friendly, a perfect location for my daughters birthday.

Great food and service
What a gem! This restaurant in an old house is tucked away and it is a treasure! Food is delicious! Definitely try the house feature - fettuccine alfredo flambed in an asiago cheese!
Food was excellent! Service good. Nice to sit outside on the patio, however the patio does not feel as "high end" as the inside. Would go back again.
The food and service here was excellent. We will return for sure.
Out dated but good service and delicious food. It's small but that just means the servers are more attentive. Wine list is pretty good and good should of pasta, the stuffed chicken was really good and same with the violino special.
Delicious Italian Food! Possibly one of the best in the City.
This was a day to celebrate my friends birthday
We had an exceptional evening at Violinos - fantastic food, great service, all around excellent. HIGHLY recommend!
It was very good food and service but request the main floor. As to me it will complete the positive!
Outstanding, all around, definitely come back again
Everything was very enjoyable. The service was amazing.
Reserved for inside but was sat outside instead by the hostess; it would have been fine but we both ordered the fettuccine for a second time and wasn’t aware we wouldn’t be getting the whole presentation of the dish so that was a little disappointing as I wanted my daughter to experience it as well. Good was still amazing!
It was our 40th wedding anniversary. Was a perfect evening. Our waitress was outstanding. A night to remember. We dined on the two house specials. Lobster and steak for me. My wife had ravioli with seafood. Thank you so much. Best romantic dining spot in Edmonton.
I went for my birthday and the service was outstanding and food great. I was even treated to a complimentary serving of tiramisu (just because it was my birthday).
Great food, service and ambience
What do I say?The food was great,the service was great,the ambiance was great,and the drinks and wine were great.
Loved the extra special treat from the kitchen
Needed to change reservation from outside (Smokey) and they gave us a table.
Lovely place. Food was good. service was ok, Will be back,
The food is amazing. Took our friends last night. Best Italian they have ever had.
awesome service! there were few parking spots for the restaurant in peak dinner time, we had to park at the stripmall across the street. overall, good area, good service and food.
Great food great service. The server gave us a free dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary. That was a nice touch.
I had the Fetticine. Cream sause was on point, pasta was cooked correctly and flavours were great.
Amazing food and atmosphere, celebrated a birthday here, would recommend to everyone!
Excellent evening Allison round. Highly recommend.
this place is very classic and enjoyable the staff and the owner were very accommodating in every respect I eat in alot of places across this country and by far this is one of my favourites great people and staff
Wonderful dinner on the outside patio. Great food. Great music. Perfect
My wife had the spaghetti Bolognese and I had the halibut. Excellent entrées and we would definitely go back! My only criticism is that the bread loaf was not fresh.
Quiet and elegant ambient with delicious food in a very nice neighborhood.
