  • "Il Sogno continues to impress with delicious food, a great new menu and excellent service. We intend to return often."

  • "What a great experience. We told our waiter we had to make the theatre and he made sure our dishes came out on time. He was a great waiter as well. We had appetizers and they were very filling, not too mention delicious! I had lamb meatballs which were wonderful. My daughter had a shrimp pasta and the pasta was so fresh. My friend had the calamari and loved the sauce. The wine list was extensive and featured great by the glass choices as well. Thank you Patricia! We vow to come again."

  • "Very tender and flavorful steak, and the gnocchi was also very tasty! Nice place, but some artwork and Italian musica would make it so much more "Italia!""

  • "It was our 5th wedding anniversary, and I tried to find a special place to share some good moments that we could remember in the future. I sure made the right choice. First of all, the waitress was the best!! So natural and knowledgeable ... Also she was very helpful. My cell phone was almost dead, so I could not take any picture, but she brought a charger! So nice of her. And second, the wine list was not too large, but sure they had very good wines. We took a Pinot Noir from Napa Valley. Outstanding wine. We took the Chef's surprise choice, so they brought 4 courses, all of them mouth watering, and with very special flavours. All in all, a gem in Calgary. We will come back. That's a fact."

  • "Beautiful décor, very nice food and excellent service...our waiter was outstanding. Started with calamari and side salad, both were fresh and well proportioned. Unfortunately had to send back my wife's lamb as it was very fatty. Our waiter promptly replaced her dish without incident. My duck tortellioni was well seasoned and quite filling despite the smaller portion size. Il Sogno has a very nice wine selection to pair with all of its courses. For dessert the chocolate souffle and carrot cake were the perfect endings to our dining experience along with a very nice peach grappa. Overall we had a very pleasant experience at Il Sogno and would recommend this restaurant for those intimate and special occasions."

  • "What an experience! From the look and feel of Il Sogno, to the service to the amazing meal. Perfect for a 6 person client event...wine list was good but the appetizers were outstanding...had 4 of them family style - Delicious! Then on to individual main courses which were all excellent....good variety at the table I had the lamb and it was great. I'd recommend for almost any kind of occasion."

  • "Our group of 4 enjoyed creative salads ( roasted beets), well prepared entrees ( lamb, pork & pork belly and beef) and delicious desserts ( you must have the carrot cake). The service is outstanding and the staff is accommodating with food intolerances and preferences. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is a gem in the neighbourhood of Bridgeland."

  • "I took my fiance for dinner (it was his birthday), and we had a lovely experience! Our waiter Dino, was very friendly, knowledgable and entertaining. We ordered the Chef's Surprise Tasting menu with wine pairings, and everything was delicious! Presentation was pleasing to the eye, taste was amazing and each wine paired very well with each course. Everything was timed well, and we didn't feel rushed which made us enjoy our evening even more. Dino even went outside in the freezing cold to flag a taxi for us, which was over and above the call of duty thank you so much!"

  • "Patricia very kindly accommodated my request to change our reservation from 7 to 7:30 pm knowing it is prime time on a Friday evening. Our experience was very positive and we had the Big Taste menu. The appetizers were wonderful. For the main, my husband had the beef cheek and I had the duck confit stuffed ravioli. I loved the earthiness of the pasta with mushroom. I also had a taste of the beef cheek and it was very flavourful. The panna cota dessert was okay only, it fell short after the other dishes. Service was great as well. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Food was excellent and well priced for fine dining. Service was superb and I look forward to going back!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Food was excellently presented and prepared. However I felt that it was not really a "filling" amount - as advertised Big Taste but small amounts. The duck tortillino was excellent but presented with no vegetables. The goat cheese appetizer was not very "substantial". Winterlicious & Summerlicious are similar programs in Toronto. I have never left feeling hungry. This our second Big Taste experience with the same result. Waiter was professional and fun."

  • "A new restaurant for us, although it has been around for several years. Went during Big Taste and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Certainly plan to return."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Went for the first time after hearing all sorts of great things about this place. I would say the food was very good depending on what you get. Some apps and entrees are really good, some not so. LambMeatballs, caprese salad, Mushroom portfolio were very good. The Duck was ok as was the creme brûlée. Service was good if but a little slow. Will try again but like many restaurants now in Calgary you have to pay big $$$ for just a pretty good meal."

  • "Il Sogno is a delicious Italian restaurant that boasts great ambiance and food. I would highly recommend it to any foodie that loves good food and wine."

  • "Service was exceptional...very friendly and attentive. Food had a nice modern twist to some Italian Classics We plan on returning"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "More and more my husband and I are interested in good dining in rooms which allow for conversation and reflection. Il Sogno is such a place. White table cloths and candle light invite you in, and the high tin ceiling and heavy velvet drapery offer a sense of quiet elegance. Our waiter was attentive while being invisible - such a nice change from those who want to 'join your table'. The octopus and radicchio salad was splendid and the winter squash ravioli with balsamic cream - divine. Our first visit to this little oasis in Calgary will not be our last."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Never had anything less than outstanding food and service here. The menu can't be beat unless of course you do the Chef's Tasting which is always exceptional. Staff are personable, professional and knowledgable. Our first choice for any special evening."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I had high expectations after reading reviews for the restaurant and had been lpoking forward to a fabulous pasta dish fr weeks, but was a bit disappointed when the recommended gnocchi was so overly salty that I couldn't finish eating it. The service was excellent and the restaurant was lovely."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We ordered the Chef's special and thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ate. Not a cheap restaurant by any means but well worth the price."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We really enjoy Il Sogno. In spite of all the changes to the restaurant scene in Calgary, Il Sogno is consistently one of the best for food, service and ambience in the city. We had the Chef's Special Menu which was a wonderful combination of interesting flavours and textures, a real treat. We would hightly recommend it."

  • "Excellent menu and service. What you would expect in a resort/spa in the Rockies, or the heart of downtown. Chef's Surprise and wine pairings were excellent."

  • "Il Sogno was a great dining experience. We were seated next to a table of 12 and our waiter served them on top of us. None the less, he was prompt, friendly and made sure we were taken care of. Surprisingly, the table of 12 beside us was not the loudest, and the general noise level was higher than I'd like for a nice dinner out with a date. I think this issue could be solved with some sound absorbing decorations on the hard surface walls, and more space between the tables (It is a bit cramped). The food was top notch."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This was a first time experience of this establishment for Valentine's night. Warmly greeted and promptly seated. The decor of the place was pleasant, somewhat minimalist with red curtains and plain walls and no art, the balloons added to tables for Valentine's seemed a little of a cheap touch but nonetheless added to the ambience. Let's face it you're there for the ambience and fine dining. The food was simply faultless. The duck filled ravioli was perfectly done; properly filled pockets leaving no room for disappointment. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection needing no pressure on the knife and melting in the mouth. The lamb shoulder was also nicely prepared leaving us perfectly satisfied. A perfect night to get engaged!"

  • "Great experience. My main course was not up to expectation. They graciously deducted the amount from the bill - highly ethical. My wife's gnocchi was the best we have ever tasted. We have been dining at this restaurant since inception. We highly recommend Il Sogno!!"

  • "Stopped by for lunch this past Monday - great food, wonderful wine, and fantastic service by Tom.....once you've come in the door, you can relax and let them take care of you!"

  • "My fiance had not been here previously. It was about my third time there. The food and service did not disappoint. We shared the buffalo Mozarella salad, the duck ravioli and the lamb. The food and wine (which was also great) were exceptional. Our server was a perfect blend of attentive but not intrusive. The entrees are not cheap - i.e. around $28 but well worth it for a special night out."

  • "Food was good but this restaurant has lost its special spark."

  • "We are long time fans of Il Sogno and go there for all special occasions. Very disappointing last week due to a young waiter. This young fellow who said worked last in Disney World, told me I was making a mess when I drop of Balsamic fell on my table. I realize this was an attempt at humour it went past us. He then tried to talk us out of ordering a bottle of vintage Barolo! I accidentally pushed the wrong button for a tip and he followed us out the door to collect! I would have returned to make this right, but the service was terrible. Both meals were not up to their standards."
