Diner Reviews
  • "I have learned that recommending a resturant to friends and family never works for whatever reason. Villa Firenze was recommended to us, so much so that the recommenders insisted in coming with us. Every plate was delicious (there were many), we waited on by the owner (which I think is typical) and pride was apparent in every aspect by everyone. I will have no trouble recommending Villa Firenze to anyone and not worry in the least of it not working out. I will be inventing Special Occasions just go back again and again."

  • "This was our first time at the restaurant and everything was delightful - from the wonderful service to the exceptional food and information. Highly recommended!"

  • "The food was acceptable. However we were a couple surrounded by foursomes and eight some tables who were being served by the same server. Our service was extremely poor ( for example we never did receive balsamic and olive oil for our rolls). I suspect that the level of service was due to a larger gratuity from the larger tables. Do not see ourselves returning to this restaurant."

  • "I have started to frequent this restaurant more lately due to easy commute to and from downtown, available parking, prompt service and a very good menu selection as well as very good daily features. I also have an allergy which they easily accommodate."

  • "A pleasant surprise - it felt like being back in Italy and eating at a family owned restaurant where the food is fresh and lovingly prepared. Portions are generous and the vegetables steamed perfectly. Guests were all nicely dressed, the Chianti lovely and the overall experience charming. We had memorable family dinner."

  • "I booked this Villa Firenze for my wife's birthday dinner and having been there before thought it would be good to go again, The first time we went we were quite impressed with the quality of the food and overall ambiance. But this time we went it had seem to have lost some of its appeal, food didn't seem as good as the time before and the service was really slow. There were five of us in the party and the table we were seated at was in the corner right next to the walkway through to the kitchen!!! This was not a relaxing spot to eat at and this table should be removed from that location."

  • "Ricardo was a very engaging and energetic waiter. He was helpful with food and wine suggestions.My mother is particularly fussy when it comes to dining out and she was very impressed by his service and his demeanor. Very polite and patient with our table. The food was perfectly prepared - appetizers, entrees and desserts. All were perfectly timed, temperature was accurate and tasted amazing! My mom is so impressed, she is coming back next week! I will very soon too. Thank you to everyone there that made my daughter's birthday feel so special."

  • "The food was too salty and there was a lack of service! We were disappointed because we have been to this restaurant in the past and the food was great!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "If you are downtown and can access your vehicle, this is an easy place to get to with ample free parking available. If your food order is placed promptly, you can dine and be done in less than an hour. This is a much nicer lunch experience than the usual spots within the core. Food is excellant. Any special needs such as food allergies are accommodated easily and thoughtfully."

  • "Villa Firenze can work as both a relaxed dining atmosphere or as a romantic night out. Dress runs from jeans and t-shirts to full suits, with prices acting in a similar way. Food portions are excellent, and the wine list is exceptionally variable, though of course having a broad selection of Italian whites and reds. Service is very professional."

  • "It was my first visit and won't be the last. The interior was decorated nicely and provided a nice feel to the place. The bruschetta was fantastic and tasted very fresh. The jumbo prawns and caesar salad were both very good as well. Two people in our party ordered a vitello dish and it was the most tender veal I have ever had at a restaurant - cooked to perfection."

  • "I love Villa Firenze. This place serves the best Itslian in Calgary. My advice? Come for the pasta and atmosphere, don't both with appies and wine, and tell ur date that dessert is a secret (then get her a DQ blizzard).&"

  • "We went on that Special Day to spend time together over some wine and a great meal. We were not disappointed. The Portabello appetizer was fantastic. The Ceasar salads were awesome. I had the linguini in clams sauce and my wife had the pasta special.vthe waiter was pleasant and attentive. We know where the next special romantic dinner will be."

  • "We enjoyed our first visit here from the moment we walked in. It is a white-tablecloth restaurant with a cozy feel. Our server was helpful and always available, but did not hover. The food was excellent. The pasta was fresh. We dressed up for the evening and felt comfortable doing so. We used our open table cheque as part of our payment with no questions."

  • "The food was so, so good the lasagne was to die for. The service was absolutely perfect. The food was perfect. The bread basket was amazing. The wine was great. Selection by the glass, half carafe or bottles. Villa Fiernze is such a refreshing change for dining out. The atmosphere was quiet, we could actually talk to the people across the table, a rarity these days. I really enjoyed every single part of this dining experience. Booked on line, so easy with Open Table. It was Tuesday night and the resturant was full, so be sure to make a reservation. Great parking in the back!!"

  • "We were looking for a nice place to go for our wedding anniversary, and decided on Villa Firenze based on previous reviews. The food was great, we had the escargot and bruschetta to start - would highly recommend both. The fresh baked bread was a nice touch. Veal parmigiana was excellent. Service was attentive and top notch. We are looking forward to going back soon."

  • "Disorganized, so only go if you don't mind waiting. Waiter tried hard and was friendly, but could not overcome the mistakes by the hostess and the kitchen. Food was good for the prices once you got it. Food presentation is non-existence, so don't expect any."

  • "The food was very good and the selection offered something for everyone. Couple of issues - we got our bread - really good bread/bun but no butter nor oil or vinegar - just plain bread. Ordered a beer and the server forgot to bring it. There was a large group in a private area however our table backed on to the opening, although they closed the shutters but still very noisy."

  • "Have been several times. It is a treat going in groups, they have so many "signature dishes" you can try a little of everything to have your favorites without getting stuffed to the max. WIne recommendation was excellent, wine list is very good and mark up is noticable more reasonable than your typical Calgary restaurant."

A real pleasant experience to have your meal interrupted by a scream outburst! Are there no baby sitters Consider the screaming kid on an airplane... you have no escape."
