One of my favourite small restaurants in Calgary. One of the traits of European restaurants is that you are not rushed (a meal can last hours), and there is no rush here. One of the reasons we like it. Food is always great and staff is always very friendly. Have been quite a few times, and will continue to go as long as Calgary is home!

I can't believe we have been living in the sw for so long and haven't been to involtini earlier. Since the first dine we already returned twice more. The offerings are superb. Doesn't matter if we ordered appetizers, mains or the pizza dishes all came with hearty portions, concise prep and a combination of traditional and innovative tastes. Truly deserves the title neighborhood gem.

Authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxed setting with wonderful service. Food was very good on the whole although my dessert left a lot to be desired. Starter of roasted brie with maple syrup and caramelized onions was a nice fusion of Canadian and Italian. The main courses (we both tried different Involtinis) were nice but not spectacular. My desert was a let down. A poor crepe wrapped around a lump of ice cream. The orange peppercorn sauce was fine but there should have been less than half the amount of ice cream. I am a big eater and only got through half.

The reason I am impressed with every meal I enjoy at Involtini’s is because the dish is hand crafted for me after I place my order! Fresh food, beautifully created and plated. No wonder I do not go elsewhere!

Took my wife for her birthday 23 Jan. As always, a very enjoyable experience. Good drink specials throughout the week, great food and service. The ambiance is relaxing and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Have been before and will certainly go again.

We are regulars at Involtini and always enjoy the food and the friendly service . Gerry and Tammie are the owners and they make everyone feel welcome. We recommend Involtini to friends and we bring people visiting Calgary from out of town on business. We've organized business Christmas parties there and they've been successful both times.

We went to this restaurant for the first time on NYE. As such, the menu was a fixed 5 course dinner. The gnocchi appetizer was amazing as was the warm spinach salad! The Amuse Bouche was interesting as the flavours were unique but not very traditional. Beef tenderloin was slightly overlooked for our taste but still good. Desserts of chocolate cake and cassata were nice finishes. We were surprised by the flavours of all the courses as we were expecting a more traditional meal but we did enjoy this one. We will have to return to try the regular menu!

Always a comfortable favourite for dining. High quality ingredients and beautifully presented. Over the years tried many different dishes and find it tough to choose, have never been disappointed.

My wife and I ate here based on the good reviews. The service was incredibly slow. We were there for nearly 3 hours to have an appetizer dinner and dessert. The server was friendly enough but the slow service really killed that aspect. My beef was supposed to have blue cheese in it but really it was my blue cheese that had a little bit of beef. Blue cheese as an overpowering flavor and that's all I could taste in my entire meal. I couldn't even tell you what kind of meat was wrapped around the cheese because I couldn't taste it. My wife's dish was overly consumed by sauce to the point where you couldn't tell what was underneath it. She had the veal with lobster sauce and I had the beef involtini. The wine list was nice and that was probably the best part of our evening was sipping on that bottle of French wine. We ordered the baked brie which was absolutely drenched in a syrupy type sauce and it was all you could taste. It took away from all the flavor of the Brie. The tiramisu had some kind of a Berry sauce poured over it which really doesn't mix well with the coffee flavor that the tiramisu should have. My wife had some kind of wrap with ice cream in it and strawberries over top. It was so jammed with ice cream and was served so hot that the ice cream literally melted into a pool of Milky goo. At first glance the Ambiance in the restaurant is incredible and we were very excited. However the extremely slow service and the subpar food disappointed us and it was not worth the money. We had read that it was a Hidden Gem but perhaps it should stay hidden. Based on my first trip there I'm not sure I would spend my money to take a second trip there for dinner to see if maybe it was an off night.

The food here is out of this world good. Had the involtini (chicken) last time and it was so good. Everything is excellent from the pizza to the calamari. The atmosphere is soft and romantic and the staff are great.

We like the seniors menu but feel that dessert should be included. The veal dish was nice however, too sweet. Caesar salad not too great but the other one offered was marvelous.
We are seniors from the area and fine this a nice venue in our area.

Very good restaurant (food and service). Lobster risotto and Chicken Involtini was delicious. Nice choice of wines. Only complaint was that we were stuck in a corner table and it was very tight seating and claustrophobic.

My husband and I had another lovely meal at Involtini. I had the beef tenderloin and he had the salmon Involtini. Both meals were amazing. Service was a little slow as they were very busy but we didn’t mind as we were relaxed and enjoying our time to chat over drinks.

The food is made when ordered so takes a bit of time but well worth the wait.
Mushroom appetizer is amazing! Our food was done exactly as requested and was very tasty. The desert menu is small but very good.
Highly recommended!
