Always A Pleasure!
We routinely have a wonderful dining experience at San Remo - McKenzie Town. The staff is very customer centric and friendly, the food excellent, and there are very reasonable accomodations for special needs diets (of which we have one). We consider ourselves fans, and highly recommend this Restaurant.

yum $10 pasta night
Went to San Remos ona Sunday and there was a $10 pasta night. I had the mushroom pasta and it was delicious. Would definitely go back again.
3/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
The poutine appetizer and arugula salad are outstanding! My pasta was not quite what I was expecting, (sweet sauce that I didn't like), and they were very nice about removing it from the bill. Amazing pana cotta too.

went their for a birthday
went their for a birthday supper - requested a quiet table and got a nice one tucked away, though the ambient noise (esp. a child nearby) was noticeable a lot of the time. The food was amazing - trout and duck, and the service I would say was definitely some of the better that we have seen lately. Not somewhere I would likely go to on a regular basis for a regular meal out, but for a treat, was a great place to try. Somewhere we are keeping in mind if we want a night out with that type of menu.

We had a lovely dinner. There aren't a lot of choices. We were a group of 4, we all had different things and they were all excellent. There was a private party going on in the lounge, and I actually thought it would be a nice setting to do that.

Always a great experience
We always enjoy celebrating our special occasions at San Remo. It really is a neighbourhood gem.

Food and service outstanding
Food and service were outstanding as always. But making the reservation on line did not ask where we wanted to be seated and we ended up sitting in the bar area. Same menu but tall tables and chairs which were quite uncomfortable for 3 short people.

Always consistently good to great.
The titile says it all.
We often find ourselves going to San Remo on a Monday, which happens to be $10 pasta night also. Delicious pastas, as well as delicious everythign else. Add to that a fantastic serving staff as well as great kitchen, there is a winning combination.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner here on Mother's Day. Even though it was a busy evening we had great service. We both ordered one of the May featured meals - BC trout. It was presented nicely, was cooked perfectly and had great flavors. We plan to be back!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I keep going back to this neighbourhood gem. We all just love it here, food is always great and just a wonderful classy restaurant.
Thank you for coming to our area!!!

Made a Great Impression!
We have been to San Remo McKenzie Towne several times and each time the service, food and ambience exceeded our expectations. This time be brought a couple to have their first experience and they loved it! Thanks for being so consistant and reliable when first impressions are involved.
We will be back again soon!
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I come to San Remo all the time and food is always amazing. Our server was great! Very attentive and energetic. I will definitely be coming back!

Great Food Great Location
Our plan was to be outside. But as the patio was closed due to rain we sat inside in a booth and it was great. As per normal, the service was excellent. The food was wonderful as well.

A Real Gem !
Both the service and meals exceeded our expectations. Nicely thought out menu choices and willingness to work around a dietary restriction for one member of our party. We left at the end of the meal being totally satisfied. Thank you, San Remo!
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food was zesty, good portions and not over the top in price. the ambience is excellent, urban yet warm decor. no background music which I found unusual, but not a complaint. the caprese salad we had as an appetizer, skimped on bocconcini for the sake of presentation. the waitresses were friendly, quickly took our orders, served us but then promptly forgot about us (we had to try to flag someone down for a glass of water?). notwithstanding the small issue of service, I have already recommended this resto to others.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Absolutely excellent food, & ambiance, Highly highly recommend this restaurant.

Great local fine dining experience
They have a nice promotion on Wednesday. All wine on the menu is half price. Fun to try some of the more expensive wines at the price of an average wine. Service was a little slow but very friendly and pleasant. I think they were busier then they expected to be.
Very good food as usual . We have dined here many times and each time it has been great

Appreciate the attention given to children, the menu choices on Pasta night and the good quality food.

Chef knows what he is doing, and the food is real. Why is there a line-up at Earl's. This is way better.

They have a new menu, I had the beef short ribs which were delicious. There is a new sauce with the fabulous bread which is good however I miss the flavored butters they used to have.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was so easy - my girlfriend and I decided to go out for the evening just to catch up on girl talk. I went on line, sent her the email confirmation, walked over to the restaurant, she was there and it was just a great evening. Every dish we had was fabulous and the white wine sangria was outstanding. Service was incredible, food was excellent and the company was great!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a treat..always
The combination of excellent food and terrific service make this one of our favorite locations. I had the halibut, perfectly prepared. the other 2 member of the group had the chicken with honey truffle glaze...a homerun!
Even if the food was mediocre, which it is not, the service is so professional, welcoming and knowlegable to make it a very big part of the great experience of San Remo.

As a celiac, I approached
As a celiac, I approached this restaurant with a little apprehension. The waitress was very understanding and was familiar with what I and could not have from the menu. She made a couple of good suggestions for slight changes to my dishes. The two appetizers we had were delicious and the entrees were amazing. The Bolognese sauce was to die for and worked with the corn pasta. The wine list covers a wide range and has something for most tastes.
If you are in McKenzie Towne, you need to try this restaurant.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
love this place
Great service. cocktails are fantastic.amazing meals.recommend the short rib.we always go on special occasions.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be back
Very good food at reasonable prices. Excellent service in a nice environment which was quiet enough to allow a good conversation.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
What can I say
Another wonderful, predictably delicious meal, with attentive, friendly staff. One of the most enjoyable places you can go to on a regular basis. The food is fresh, perfectly cooked with imaginative preparations throughout.

Another Great Dinner at San Remo
We went for our anniversary and really enjoyed the evening. As usual the food was fantastic and service was good.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Calgary! The food is amazing, the menu is always changing and the meals are always so fresh, vibrant and flavorful. I love the service as well. You can go in and take your time and enjoy each course without feeling rushed. Always a place I want to take visitors and guests!

Overall one of the best spots
Overall one of the best spots to dine out in Mckenzie Towne. Food quality is always great and the changing daily features always give us something to look forward to. No matter who serves our table, they are always cheerful and make the evening enjoyable.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staff were very courteous and friendly. We had the Prawns to start and both had a pizza. The Stilton, Pear, and Pine Nut Pizza was very good.
8/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great as Usual
We have dined here many times and have always enjoyed it. Service is good and food is great.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had an excellent dining experience here along with another couple. The food was exquisite starting with the appetizers all the way to the desserts. Our waitress was also a lot of fun and catered to our every desire. A great place to go with a group or for a romantic dinner. Who would of thought this kind of restaurant was so close to home? We will definitely be going back.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved it but ...
The food and service were great.
We intend to make the lounge one of our regular spots.
Only suggestion would be that the dining room menu is too restrictive.
I would suggest they add the other pasta dishes and even their pizza - figure out a pricing option so it does not compete against the great Sunday pasta specials.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food, restful atmosphere
I have been here several times and have never been disappointed with the quality of food or service. The restaurant is very clean and beautifully decorated. The atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing. They have beautiful side booths that are great for an intimate group or couple. They also have a great patio in the summer. I had the yellow beet and arugula salad with chicken and it was excellent. They also have great fire oven pizzas. As a bonus, they also serve fresh bread before your meal. Would highly recommend.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Appy's and desserts
We went to San Remo for a family dinner. I found out about the restaurant from a Google Search. The staff were friendly and attentive. I really liked the Gnochi Poutine and the Sambuca Prawn appetizers. I had the Artic Char special which was excellent , it featured smoked root vegetables which were absolutely fantastic. My son loved his spaghetti bolognese and my wife and daughter enjoyed the roast chicken. We tried 4 different desserts and each one was a hit.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable meal and experience. I would recommend this restaurant.

Worth the Drive
We were staying at the Deerfoot Inn and wanted to get to a restaurant outside the hotel. This was only a short drive away and was well worth it. The server, although new, was very good at finding out the information we needed on food prep etc. I wasn't as fond of the bruscetta as the tomatoes came on the side and it lacked a bit of flavour. That said,everything else was fabulous. We split the ceasar and the beet/goat cheese salad and I wished I had the beet salad to myself. Soooo good. Then we split a pear, pine nut and gorgonzola pizza which was also excellent! I would definitely go back next time I am in town. The prices were reasonable, they had good beer choices and the feel is much more upscale than just a neighborhood restaurant.

Don’t like dining out !
My 2 year old grand daughter and Wife both hate to dine out so this was a treat for them to be with me, usually just business associate's are with me. I got the first sitting so as to have a early time for the grand daughter and was pleasantly surprised to see another young girl with her grandmother there. I think that made them both comfortable. Special attention by the waitress to give the grand daughter a small bowl of what she wanted with no fuss kept the whole evening pleasant. All food and requests were met with a quick accurate response and pleasant attitude. The evening was a success and upon leaving I noticed a beautiful bar area also that I will be sure to return and experience also.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great night out!
Food was fantastic, nice wine list & and service was second to none. We will be back!

Took my wife to San Remo spur of the moment this week. We were once again very pleased. The food was excellent as was the service. Been dinning there since day one.
