BISTECCA proudly serves Sterling Silver Beef which is the highest graded premium beef in Canada.

Diner Reviews
  • "For the price of the appetizers and food, we expected 'more'; both in flavor and quatity. The tartar was 'ok' but the portions were VERY small for what you paid. The bison canneloni was very good."

  • "Three of us went to Bistecca for the first time and we were not disappointed. It is pricey but the food and quantity was excellent. Disappointed in the garlic festival dessert but overall very good. We will be going back to try the regular menu. Our waiter was very attentive and checked on a regular basis making sure we had everything we needed."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This was the first time we went here and for a quaint birthday dinner, we enjoyed it overall. Service was fabulous and so were the drinks and appetizers. The Kobe meatballs, mussels and escargot stood out. Main dishes could have been better, since the bison rib eye was ridiculously tough and the vegetable ravioli was too salty. Portions are small so appetizers are a must! If you have room for dessert, get the warm chocolate torte-it is to die for!"

  • "Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bistecca's. We had a hard time deciding from the great menu. The "little tastes" are a wonderful way to try different starters. The pork loin was exceptional and the bison cannelloni very tasty. Very nice ambiance for a special evening. Only criticism was that the service was a little slow and they forgot one of the side dishes."

  • "The worst experience ever. Waited 1.5 hours for our food. Manager was rude when this was brought to his attention. Various and sundry excuses were provided. When the food came the steak was over cooked and the rest of the meals were cold. Will never go back again."

  • "Usually love this place. Tried the "special" this time and it was a dud. Chef should have known better than to send it out. Oh well."

  • "An early dinner before a movie we had a quiet table for two, with a very attentive server. Started with warm grain type bread, followed by appetizer of smoked salmon and cheese. First course very nice lobster bisque ( really good) we shared, followed by a perfectly cooked steak with beats, potatoes and asparagus, hubby had very tasty bison cannelloni a little too much cheese for my liking but still delicious. A wonderful meal, no room for dessert."

  • "Food was superb, tasty, fresh, steak was better than Ruths Crisp and more affordable !! Good wine list, great service. We went early evening before the hockey game. So not sure what the energy would be like later in the evening. However we will be finding out soon. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys quality!"

  • "Tried Bistecca when visiting Edmonton as it is very close to the airport. Beyond excellent service from Jennifer. Everyone was very attentive and professional. Food was outstanding. A little noisy and tables are fairly tightly arranged, but overall was an excellent evening."

  • "Everything was fantastic about Bistecca. The service was top notch and the waitress Jennifer even offered a menu suggestion for my two boys (11 and 14 years old) that everyone would enjoy sharing. I will be back!"

  • "My Wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with a couple of friends, and we decided to try Bistecca for a second time (First time was also wonderful) Again we were not disappointed. All of us had such a great night. We loved the food, and enjoyed the atmosphere that allowed us to catch up, and have a great time. Would definitely recommend. Will definitely go again."

  • "We enjoyed our evening at Bistecca. There were a number of items on the menu that I would have liked to try for dinner. Service was professional and smooth. That was a nice change from what you can get in some places. Price was moderate, portions were perfect. I would go back. :)"

  • "Had the florentine pizza and it was quite good. The wine selection is always good and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The noise level was very high. There were two babies crying for some time and after an hour the families left. The wine was very expensive as were the drinks we had. I chose an escargot appetizer and it was served in the shell but they did not provide the device that is used to hold the shell to allow you to extract the snail. The shells were very hot so this was a bit of an exercise. When I asked about the tool, the waiter just said they don't have them. I used an olive pick from my martini to remove the escargot from the shell. I ordered a tenderloin steak and it arrived overdone. I had also asked the waiter if they had a stuffed potato and he said yes but what I got were potato fingerlings. I told the management but no adjustment made."

  • "We went for lunch yesterday at Bistecca. Food was great and service was friendly, thanks to Jen and Alena. Canneloni was incredible. Perfecto!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Our first visit, and it was enjoyable from beginning to end. Atmosphere is great. Beautifully decorated in dark leather and subdued paintings. Does not have the old traditional steakhouse mentality or stuffiness. Servers are very attentive and helpful (thank you Jenn). Food was equally good... from a ceasar salad that the server splits in front of you to the tender Lamb Shank and risotto. Sides are good as well and add the right amount of flavour. The bathroom being so far from the lounge is a bit of a pain but overall, this restaurant is worth a try and we will return!"

  • "I visit Bistecca pretty regularly, as its proximity to the airport makes it a great place to meet out-of-towners. I have not once been disappointed with the food or the service (Olena and Jennifer are great). The specials often mix a variety of cuisine styles, so I usually order one of them and recommend that my guests do the same."

  • "Great place for special occasions. Food: Excellent. The veal s scallopine that I ordered was very juicy and the fully-loaded pasta deeeeeee-licious. Service: Very polite waitresses ( Jenny and Olena). Constant water refills and "how is your meal so far?". Area: The restaurant gives a very cozy feeling when seated."

  • "I took my mother here and it was a perfect location for a nice lunch. Jennifer was very kind and knowledgable about the menu. She was really great! We tried the italian club and the smoked salmon sandwiches and really enjoyed them. They were a great portion size for lunch. We will go back to try more."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I wouldn't mark Bistecca as "kid friendly" necessarily, but we took our well behaved 5 year old (for an early dinner) and our waitress Jennifer as well as the rest of the staff went out of their way to accommodate. Overall, it was a great experience."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "One of our favorites. The food is always amazing. We pick Bistecca as one of the top for a date night. Jennifer was our server last time; she was lovely. Highly recommend."

  • "Our server Jennifer was attentive without being overbearing, the pace was appropriate for the room, and the wine a great pairing with the food. A great dining experience! Expensive but worth the price for a special occasion."

  • "I have heard great things about Chef Sonny's food and my dinner, as well as the dinner of my three guests, was fantastic. I ordered the duck duo with a side of asparagus and it was one of the best duck dishes I have ever had. The service was very professional from beginning to end. Our waitress Jennifer gave a great wine recommendation to go with my meal and was very accommodating to my allergies. We were blown away."

  • "The food was outstanding, however it did seem to take a long time for our food to come. The staff did acknowledge it without us having to bring it up which was courteous."

  • "I had booked here for my sons 13th birthday family dinner. I made sure they new it was his birthday when making the reservation. When we arrive we were seated and our dining experience began. Our waiter was horrible, he had no personality and was ruin constantly reaching in front or across while we were eating to clear dishes. He never asked if we wanted a second drink and did mention our sons birthday during our whole time there. It was a let down as I wanted them to make him feel special by acknowledging his special day. The food was good everything except the Caesar salad. I would go back again because of the food but would insist on a different waiter. This guy wouldn't even acknowledge us when we said thank you!"

  • "Ordered brushetta to start followed by new york strip with gelato and coffee for dessert. all were top notch. steak ordered medium rare and that's exactly how it came. Perfect. Gelato with caramel corn on the side a nice touch. Have visited Bistecca many times. The staff are always accommodating and the food satisfying. Maybe the menu could change a little more often but that's a minor detail. Definitely recommended"

It's a great place to relax and have some wine. The food is really innovative, even the oil that accompanies the bread is constantly evolving. Our servers, Olena and Jennifer are so nice to us and make us feel welcome each time."

  • "The food and the service was very good. My guest had the catch of the day (coconut tiger prawns) and I had the pasta of the day, which included a fried egg! It was definitely gourmet and we found both our meals to be quite unique. It was nice to order speciality and almost dessert like coffees at the end because neither of us had room for dessert but craved something sweet. Thank you to Kristine, Jennifer, and Olena; we will definitely be back."

  • "My husband & I were excited to celebrate Valentine's Day and our Anniversary, but wished the staff were as excited. Our waiter was 15 mins late, but did a great job. 45 mins elapsed between appetizers and main course. My husband finished his baked dessert long before I received mine. Not until I approached the Manager about the delay, did it finally arrive. Did I mention it was fruit, biscotti, and a chilled square!! Nothing intricate. When I commented 'THIS is what I've been waiting for', the Manager proceeded to blame the owner, kitchen, and even the waiter. I never once saw the Manager go into the kitchen to help out. I might've understood if it was busy... t wasn't... it was a Sunday! The $25 credit didn't sway my feelings of Bistecca"
