Italian

D.O.P. is a journey that started with a large family who immigrated from a small village in the heart of Italy in 1979. With them they brought the memories, traditions, and recipes of the old country. For over 14 years my parents operated an Italian restaurant in Ontario, and I watched them share these Italian traditions with their community while creating lifelong memories.

This journey continued when I moved to Calgary, inspired by my father I continued working in the restaurant industry. His legacy and my exposure to the diverse food culture in the city helped shape the concept of D.O.P. Being a second generation Canadian I want to honour both my Italian roots and Canadian upbringing by sharing our families’ recipes and adapting them to our Canadian landscape.

We are privileged to share with you the time-old traditions and memories of a family whose passion for Italian cooking created a legacy.

So, come on in, leave your shoes on and let’s make more

                                          I don’t normally leave reviews, but for this restaurant I HAD TO. The food and service were fabulous. Lovely, quaint spot with a warm and welcoming vibe as soon as you enter. Both servers were so friendly and chatted with me (I sat alone at the bar). I am still dreaming about the olive oil. Will go back every time I am in Calgary!

                                          Loved this place when it was Bar Von Der Fels, still love it now! Service was so friendly and so knowledgeable about the dishes. Food was cooked perfectly, great flavours. We had booked for an anniversary dinner, they gave us a welcome drink of bubbly, and dessert on the house. Can’t wait to go back.

                                          Incredible. Had to wait a bit for our table so they gave us complimentary Prosecco and the waitress chatted with us about the menu. Great atmosphere, tables were all full. Food was amazing.

                                          Really unique and fun spot. The food in incredible. I would try everything on the menu. The music is very loud and the restaurant is warm but these aren't necessarily negative things.

                                          It was like being in Italy. LOVED the Grilled Bread, Whipped Ricotta, White Anchovies, & Endive Salad with house Chianti. Filled the gaps with heavenly Tiramisu and were thrilled with the gelato! Servers were wonderful. We'll be back!

                                          Great little character restaurant. Limited menu but food quality and taste were excellent. The modest space makes for a little noisier dining, but excellent overall.

                                          Outstanding. From entering, to seating and every thing in between, through our exit at the end of the night. Can’t wait until our next visit. Thank you.

                                          Great staff and service paired with delicious rich food! We will be back! We went with our kids early and they were accommodating and great with them too!

                                          Food and service were great! Very tiny but we were only 2. We were shocked and confused to be told by a different server that the next reservation had arrived? I asked if we were being asked to leave and she said we could finish our wine. We were never told of time restriction- we had been there less than 2 hours and the next reservation was literally a foot away from us standing bc it’s so small there’s nowhere else to go! Wound up embarrassed, leaving in a rush. Really awful ending to a wonderful night

                                          One of the best meals I’ve had in a while! We sat at the bar and the bar tender was amazing. She made great recommendations for drinks and food. One of her recommendations ended up being one of our favorites! (Pickled zucchini) We chatted with the owner who was incredibly friendly as he told us about the tiramisu being his moms recipe. Will be back
