Valentine's Day! What can I say, very busy. Hardworking staff, personable and friendly. Excellent food! The Duck l'Orange special the best. Varied choices. Great neighborhood venue. You must try!
It was very cold in the restaurant. Otherwise it was a great experience.
We have always had excellent service with great food!
as always, a great place to meet with friends for good conversation (you can hear yourself think!) and great food. Service is excellent, menu varied, food delicious...what more could you want.
You need a night out at Involtini
As expected, excellent service and food. Remains a lovely neighbourhood choice.
Food was good, but not great and it was a very long wait.
We had a nice time and dinner at the restaurant. They seemed to be a bit understaffed and the dinner was a little slow. When it came time for desert the waiter that seemed to be taking care of the whole restaurant suggested that we not order desert as it didn't sound like we would receive anything for a very long time. That was unfortunate as desert would have been a nice finish to the night.
My boyfriend and I in our twenties, and obviously the demographic of this restaurant is an older crowd, probably due to the higher prices. This was okay with us, as we were treating ourselves to a night out. Our server was an older man, who treated each table around us with respect and no sense of urgency/annoyance, we felt we were treated differently. Each time we ordered something, the server ensured to remind us of the price of the dish or drink, as if we couldn’t afford it. He had zero interest in serving us but changed his demeanor when approaching other tables.
Beside the service, the restaurant was clean, decorated accordingly, and while the food was moderate, it lacked flavor, and was confusing for the price. I ordered my main for $30 which was a pasta with a garlic sauce and it had3 large prawns, 3 scallops, and 3 mussels. My boyfriend ordered another pasta dish that was also $30, it was smaller than mine and only had 3 shrimp compared to my 9 pieces of seafood, for the exact same price. This was disappointing.
Besides the poor service we continued to tip 20% on our over$100 meal. We are both servers, and this experience was not worth our money.
Altering your service depending on the age of the customer because you may believe that they would not be able to afford or tip to your wishes, is how you have people spitefully walk out on tabs or not tip at all. We tipped you anyways to prove that we are good enough to eat at your “expensive” restaurant and could afford it just fine.
We won’t be back.
Just ok...everything was over cooked and quite bland. First time in years I had to add salt!
Excellent locate on and plenty of parking. Food was absolutely delicious and good portions. The service was friendly and professional. The table location was poor, lots of patron and server traffic. The restaurant was full and noisy, hard for two seniors to hear and converse. Overall it was a pleasant evening.
Service was slow...but it was New Years , however waited 45 minutes between appetizer and entre. Halibut was over cooked and swimming in sauce.
New Years Eve!
Birthday dinner for 7 of us. Wanted to find a quality Italian restaurant so decided to try this one based on others reviews. It was not easy to find, the entrance is in a pizza place so we weren’t sure we had the restaurant. Very tiny restaurant and basic decor. The service was good. The food was average and nothing special. It was pleasant but I wouldn’t return.
I had booked the reservation for 5 for 7:15 PM and when we arrived we were informed that there was only one item left on the specialty for the evening. The wine we selected from the wine list was also not available.
Pretty pricey for smallish portions but tasty nonetheless.
We were a party of 4 on a bring your own wine Monday (no corkage) so excellent value. Our waiter apologised right away that due to school exams he couldn't get any of their wait staff in - just him and the restaurant was busy. . He said there would be delays but did keep us informed to status. The ambience is excellent, no music, just hubbub of people chatting. Food as always was great & nice & hot when it came. Our favourite restaurant & also our friends from Signal hill who always want to come to Oakridge to eat there.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. The food, wine list and service is really excellent. If you haven't Ben you are missing out of a wonderful experience. Relaxed atmosphere and service. Do not expect to dine anď dash.
It was a little busy with a big party in the other room and they were short staffed. But th3 food is always good and the time passed quite nicely.
Must have been an off night. Group of eight and six of our dishes were very bland.
We enjoyed our experience & food very much.
We went there as a group of 7. The food was so fresh, tasted fantastic, and had a lovely presentation. Everything is made fresh by the chef and it shows. The service is very personal with just the right amount of attention. The setting was perfect for our group as we were seated at a round table which made visiting easy for everyone and the ambient noise level was low. All in all, everyone very much enjoyed the whole evening!
Very special neighborhood family-run, upscale restaurant
We have frequented Involtini on many occasions in the past and have truly enjoyed it. Unfortunately this time there were a few areas of disappointment. It seems like they must have changed their chef. While the restaurant was not busy, we were told that our order would be delayed because the kitchen was backed up. We all ordered the cannelloni, as it has been our favorite item in the past. This time, it seemed very much different than in the past -- the sauce was quite heavy and cheese laden with a flavor that was difficult to identify -- not at all as we had remembered it; the pasta was tough and seemed like it had spent too long under a broiler, and the asparagus was disappointingly tough and chewy. The location is currently under construction -- I hope they have not chosen to reconstruct the recipes as well.
Involtini is one of my parents favorites and we like to visit there with them when we are in town.
But music was tooooooo loud.
We sat over in the semi private area
Good food in a local setting. My wife and I have been there a number of times and will continue to visit.
Love Involtini. I've been there a few times and it's never disappointed me! Definitely one of my go-to's.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We celebrated our anniversary in a cozy, romantic atmosphere and were presented a little surprise at the end! We are so lucky to have this gem of a restaurant in our neighbourhood.
The food is fresh and tasty. Love the quiet atmosphere. The service is friendly, helpful and fun. Always a wonderful experience, never disappointed.
We went for our 29th anniversary and as usual the food and service was absolutely incredible thank you Jerry
Very friendly atmosphere; delicious food; well presented; slow pace that is great for having a leisure dinner with lots of conversation.
Took along time for the food to come out but they said they make it from scratch so it could be the cause but still pretty long to wait. Otherwise it was very good! Would go again.
The main course was very bland
The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the ambiance - great place!!
This restaurant need a good clean, chairs, window ledges etc. If it wasn’t for the pizza our special evening would have been a waste of time and money. Our waiter did everything he could with what he had which wasn’t much.
This place is good for pizza to go
If there ever was a candidate for Gordon Ramsey Restaurant Makeover, this is it. Ancient worn out decor in a half empty room, one poorly dressed waiter serving the 5 occupied tables on a long weekend Sunday night. Food is atrocious starting with dense sourdough bread for dipping, the bruschetta appetizer so overwhelming with garlic and pepper it left a raw taste on my mouth. campo salad was unwashed lettuce with 4 cucumber and 2 tomato slices and no dressing to speak of not to mention the missing olives that were promised. Our mains of pork involintini and veal voluntarily had edible proteins but came with cafeteria era steamed zucchini and cauliflower totally without garnish or seasoning, but the worst were the extra pay sides of risotto and gnocchi that truly were inedible mush. The bottle of wine was terrific. Stay away. Stay far away.
Tucked in a strip mall, had missed it many times. Decided to try and it was worth it. Would come back again. Very accommodating, food was tasty, place is cozy, excellent service.
First time to this restaurant, my guest is a foodie and totally loved the menu
Mom and I chose from the lighter fare menu. Always great food, beautifully presented. Our neighbourhood gem!
Neil the waiter was absolutely fantastic!! My wife and I were celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary. And he and the staff were extremely polite. The food was absolutely top notch. We live all way in chestermere but it was well
Worth the drive!!! I wish I could give it 10 stars!! Will be coming back again and again. That’s for sure.
It was amazing! This is a MUST TRY place. Delicious food, wonderful knowledgeable staff. Great time!!!
