What a great ambiance once you walk in! You are welcomed when you come in and it has a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. My friends and I started by sharing the salumi which was an assortment of meat, olives and pickles veggies. At first glance it was small but the meal portions were big enough that we were full. The gnocchi was delicious and my friends had the mezza maniche which included local smoked bacon and the tortiglioni had meatballs that were mostly kale with delicious buffalo mozzarella! Thanks for a great dining experience!
Food was great! I am disappointed that you charge for bread, in my opinion this should be free especially when paying high amounts for smaller portions of pasta.
I've been to Cardinale a few times now for work lunches. I would highly recommend it to anyone for business, a date or a pre-game dinner. The room was a bit cold on this visit but this doesn't seem to be normal. It is February in Calgary after all.
The food was excellent & the service was very good. I'll certainly be back and will recommend it to others.
Had dinner here after the Flames game. It was not a full restaurant, but the food didn’t disappoint! Not our first time here, but is always good! Will be back!
The food, the food, the food! Everyone at the table gave fave raves, and we’ll all be back. Service on a busy game night was excellent, and the Suspiria cocktails kept us laughing!
Went for Valentine's day dinner. Good 4 course meal. At one point the music was really loud but they turned it down later in the night. Food tastes great, portions a bit small
Food was mediocre. Service was attentive and prompt.
Although the food tasted delicious, it was not served hot.
This was my third visit to Cardinale, but the first for dinner. The ambiance is fantastic and the convenience speaks for itself if you are attending an event at Stampede Park or the Scotiabank Saddledome. The food was delicious, but I cannot get past the value question. Having visited Italy three times in the last two years, Cardinale is failing on "authentic" by charging $6 for bread. Every restaurant in Italy makes bread an essential - and included - part of the meal. At $24 for every pasta, it is definitely at the top end. While I can understand the price point for the linguine with seafood which two of my dining companions enjoyed, my noodles with tomato sauce did not warrant this level. It left me asking if the one-price-for-all concept was just for the convenience of the staff.
Overall the evening was great. Had some drunks to start and a bottle of wine with dinner. Started with a sampling of 3 starters and shared 2 pasta dishes before dessert. Service was great. Could be the best I've seen in a couple years in Calgary. Worth taking a Chance, you won't be disappointed
Great food and service as always. Really liked the new design. Congrats Jared, Aja, Graham and Steve!
Panacotta for dessert was the highlight! Delicious lunch, comfy tables and great service.
Food was good but quite pricey and menu is pretty limited
Had a business meal here and the ingredients of the food had potential but it didn't come out hot and didn't seem fresh. It tasted bland and as if they had pre-made it the day before and slapped it together. My colleague and I were left disappointed and the restaurant offered to remove one dish off of our bill after we paid. It was awkward and we didn't accept the refund as they said for us to come back another time and have a meal on them which is super sweet but why would we come back even if free? They used to have great food here and now I am not sure I want to go back.
Wonderful service and excellent cuisine! Everyone was very knowledgeable about wines to pair with our dinner.
As good as I remember
Service, food and experience were all very good. I’ll be back!
The service was awesome! Had a group booking there and they took great care of us! We all enjoyed our food and the cozy enviroment. Cocktails were also unique and delicious!
Can't say enough good things about the attention to detail /service at cardinale. I was planning a suprise birthday dinner for the wife, and Graham and his team went above and beyond to accommodate the 18 person group. I had to make adjustments to the reservation, and the team was helpful every time (calling me back to verify/clarify/confirm). The service for the large group was top notch, wait time for food was minimal and well timed. They will serve and cut cakes for a fee, but the service accompanied with the fee is well worth it. Would absolutely come back.
