Cardinale and the staff there are always fun and welcoming. We happened to be there for the new menu and it was delicious! Can’t wait to go back to try more of the new food and cocktail items! They also did an amazing job of spacing us out from other patrons while being seated and while at our table.
Everything was beyond amazing! From the interior to the quality!
Great food and good service
This is hands down my favorite little spot for fantastic italian food ! Very affordable and great all around was looking for a good date night with my girlfriend and this was a great choice! Will be back to have that lasagna again real soon!
The staff was incredibly friendly! Wow! And the calamari appetizer was awesome. Great patio.
The food was quite good, but I think a big downfall of this place is that if you have food sensitivities, or wanted to modify anything on the menu, you cannot do this. They have no vegan or gluten free options or the ability to add protein to any of the pastas. Not ideal considering the price. I would say their fixed menu is not worth the cost.
Great as always
Great service, everything is made in house and the cocktails are excellent
We were celebrating a birthday, the restaurant organized a candle for dessert, and complimentary amaro to end the evening
Our server was fabulous, as were everyone else who took care of us
Had an awesome experience! The food was awesome (perfectly seasoned and pasta was al dente) but the best part was the waiter! Super funny and was awesome overall. Love coming here!
Fantastic food, fantastic wine, fantastic service!
The staff was amazing and the service was outstanding. Food was so tasty! Would recommend. Best food in Calgary I’ve had.
Best pasta in the city. Staff there always a good time and quick to help.
Amazing service. Amazing food! Six stars if I could!!!
It was amazing till the end , our server saw the number on our bill , we ordered an appitizer and 3 pastas . As it was happy hour on pasta they were 50 percent off: he told us that he shouldnt have let us in . We gave him a good tip , over 25 percent . So basically a tip on the price it would have been full price . That was sad , it was a nice evening till then , it really put me off .
Amazing mortadella and calamari 👌🏻
What a great last dinner out before the inside dining restriction start again. You can never go wrong with any of the pasta dishes!
Great food and drinks. Our waiter was fun, quick and not intrusive. Had the best martinis, pasta and salad. Everything was great but it’s not a cheap night out. For 4 people, two who shared an appetizer and entree the bill was $600 and that’s two bottles of wine.
Cardinale is one of my favourite spots. The food is fantastic, the room is cozy and the team goes above and beyond to make my dining experience memorable. It always feels like I’m dining with friends regardless if I’m there socially, for business or on my own.
Amazing service, wonderful food, great atmosphere. Exceptional experience. If you're looking for amazing Italian food, Cardinale's is the place to go.
Local authentic Italian cuisine with amazing service. More importantly they had amazing gluten free options and it was the first time my husband as been able to eat out for Italian and loved every bite of it. It was priceless for us and we will definitely be back.
I was really looking forward to eating here. That being said, it is overpriced and simply not worth it. The lasagna I had was subpar, mostly tasteless. My boyfriend’s tiramisu also wasn’t the greatest. What bothered me though was that our waiter didn’t seem to have a lot of knowledge of the menu. He told us the beer we ordered was $9, when in fact it was $12. Asides from that, the menu said the tiramisu was $9 when in fact, we got charged $10 for it. I also knew from following the restaurant on social media that pasta is 50% off after 9 pm (we went at 9:30 pm because of this), and no one mentioned it to us at anytime. Had I not known from social media, I would not have known at all. Normally when you go to a restaurant, the first thing they do is mention their specials at the moment. This was not the case here. Based on our experience, I feel like this place just wants people’s money, and not in a transparent way. It is also not worth it (taste-wise). Won’t go again.
Half-priced pasta after 9 pm daily, good value.
The seafood pasta and the Lasagna are my favorites.
Weekends are busy there, reservation is highly recommended!
Great Food, Service was above average and lots of drinks and wine selection.
Wow!!! We went for my partners 30th birthday and it was really magical! Graham gave us incredible service. We got him to order our wine and food for us, he knocked it out of the park. The veal and tiramisu were huge stand outs for us. The value was fantastic for the quality of food we received. I genuinely would have paid more for the experience we got. Ask the team about their amaro selection after dinner - it was the perfect way to end our meal. I could not recommend Cardinale enough.
As always, the food was amazing. Service was great. Would always recommend.
Nice room and terrific meal and service. Nice atmosphere and crowd
An amazing night! Fantastic food, service and ambience.
Food wine both very good .wood go back for sure. Can't wait till restrictions are lifted
It has been a while but glad we returned. New menu items were excellent and Graham provided exceptional service and food suggestions as always. SENSATIONAL
It was a delightful evening. Our server had specials and offered thoughtful suggestions for us to try.
A great evening, comfortable, relaxed and excellent quality.
Great food and wine! Out of six dishes tried, we loved the meatballs and squid ink pasta the most. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and fun! We will definitely be dining there again.
Overall food was underwhelming. Very salty and one note of flavour.
Graham was amazing!! Food was great! Will be back soon!
Our new favorite Italian spot! Service/Food/Wine is all great!
Everything was good and tasty.
We had such a lovely time at Cardinale the other night. Our server was so friendly and helpful. The food was amazing as per usual:-)
The food was delicious and the service was extremely lovely! Food is well made with amazing flavour! I would highly recommend bringing friends here for some delicious Italian food (:
Always a wonderful experience. Food was awesome, server was friendly and personable.
Will literally be there all the time
The food was very good but server was very quiet.
