Really noisy but there were 2 Christmas parties and the staff were aware of the noise. I recommend covering ceiling with sound dampening material.

Always great at SS106 Aperitivo Bar! Food never disappoints as it is really authentic Italian food but in a very modern Italian setting. Such a social vibe. Staff is always friendly and never feel rushed or forced out.

We had lunch at SS106 during the week, so overall the environment was very quiet. There were only 2 busy tables, of which 1 was ours.
We chose the charcuterie platter which was definitely enough to share between 2 persons. The platter was well diversed and also included cheese. As we were afraid the platter would not be enough, we also added an appetizer to share (Arancini). The rice 3 balls were definitely enough for 2.
will definitely recommend this restaurant, especially during the week,

On a very busy Friday night, Dom moved mountains to accommodate our reservation of 5 that ballooned to nine, even though there wasn't a seat to be had. The consistently amazing food and efforts of this establishment is why we drive 40 minutes across town to enjoy this terrific place.

This is a small neighborhood restaurant owned by a lovely brother and sister.

The food was fresh and delicious and the service was very good.

Mushroom gnocchi was plentiful with a rich cream and loads of mushrooms. The tiramisu was definately one if the best we have ever had.

We decided to drop in on a Saturday night not knowing what to excpect. Its a real authentic Italian space, not pretentious with authentic food. SS Apretivo has a great vibe with amazing food. The owner is on site working and you can tell he loves what he does. The cocktails are also creative and executed Italian style. Felt like a few of the places I visited in Roma. Ciao Bella!

After months and months and months of going past this restaurant and thinking it was an Italian pub with pub food, we ended up there one night with friends and now I have a new favourite restaurant in my 'hood!!!!! WOWZER!!!! I had a super yummy refreshing peach bellini to start. We ordered a vegetable platter to share and it was so delicious. The veg were grilled perfectly and there was a great assortment. And plenty for 4 people. I ordered the gnocchi after struggling over to make a decision on what to order. Our server told us the gnocchi had just been made that afternoon. Boom. Decision made and it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! And huge portions. I actually took some home for lunch the next day. Our friend ordered the pizza, which also looked really good. We were too stuffed for dessert but I bet they would be amazing too. I will definitely be back. It's affordable, casual, amazing food and our service was incredible. The restaurant has the vibe that you are dining at your Italian best friend's house with all of their family!!!!!!!

This place was just phenomenal. Went here for a Valentine's day dinner. They had a set menu. We are vegetarian and they customized our menu to fit our restrictions. The food was incredible. Amazing flavor. My wife and I were just amazed with this. Service (pretty sure it was the owner who served our table) was also incredible. The waiter spent a lot of time with us and we could see with other customers going over things and describing not only the food but a bit of history to it and where to find certain ingredients. It just added to the whole experience. Will definately return again.

Awesome food, authentic experience. This is a true Italian cafe/bar style in Italy. This isn’t a candlelight experience it’s a place with awesome food and relaxed environment. Dude who commented before me....Bruschetta is always cold unless it’s been sitting under heat lamps way to long. Great wines and wicked food for an exceptional value. I’ll be taking clients here this week to enjoy again.

What can I NOT say about this place!!! so glad to have them in my hood, almost don't want to tell everyone, but you will fall in love with Dom and the staff and then... a cold Peroni in hand the smell of the meatballs wafts from the kitchen, you order calamari and debate over gnocchi or ravioli , then another Peroni and sit back and either watch cool videos or perhaps just people watch as folks of all walks meander around Edmonton Trail. If you are lucky you will get to meet Dom's dad and he will share the photos of the amazing tomatoes he grew this year. This is truly a place every neighbourhood needs , family feel but with an urban upbeat vibe, AMAZING authentic Italian food and not to mention... in the coolest area in Calgary !! (may be a bit bias as I can skip 3 times right into SS106!!)

Noisy noisy noisy great place for people under 35 if you don’t mind the noise The stereo is really getting a work out.

Attractive decor really nice Italian made bar really adds to the ambience, I really like the rollup door what a great way to bring your patio into the restaurant Calgary weather depending.

Started with the Bruschetta, Calamari, and olives

The Bruschetta looked great but was quite cold destroying the taste from the tomatoes and the olive oil. When I asked about this I was told that’s the way they serve it in Italy which is news to me.

The Calamari on the other hand with some of the best I’ve ever had lightly breaded and perfectly cooked a real treat. I could see it coming back for lunch if they kept the stereo volume under control I bet you the chef could do great things with seafood.

The olives we’re good but nothing special.

At this point I could not handle the noise and left. The rest of the people at the table stayed But didn’t say much about their meals.

Very trendy yet very Italian. The food is not just good it's amazing! The best Italian food I've had in Calgary in a very long time. My friend and I shared the Arancini, then I had the spaghetti pescatore while he had the house made gnocchi in tomato sauce. All the dishes were so delicious. Do Not leave this place without having a espresso or Cappucino! The coffee made me feel like I was back in Italy! Will be back!

I would love to give SS106 five stars, but I can't.
While the food and friendliness were great, the service was quite poor. Now this could have been a one off busy night and they were short staffed...the proprietor did apologize for the slowness of everything, but sadly, it can't make up for painfully long periods of no service and choppy food delivery.
The food was homecooked and tasty. When we arrived it was hot and sunny...there was dust on the banquette seats and table from the road...it is on Edmonton Trail. Luckily another came available.
But it's busy-ness says something for it's popularity. I would give them another try.

The food was delicious but the space is small and cavernous that the loud, rambunctious patrons (friends of the owner) came in and made the noise levels unbearable. It's really too bad as the food was exceptional. Sadly, our customer experience was marred and hastened by this incident. We hope to be able to one day return and not have that unpleasant experience again. It would be great to be able to enjoy food and the company of others in a more pleasant environment.

Not a great place for those who want to be able to hear each other but if you like loud places, this will work for you.

We absolutely loved our first visit...the food, ambiance and service were amazing!!! Unfortunately, after our second visit, we will probably not return. While the food was still good the atmosphere was a complete disappointment. The noise level became so obnoxious we had to pack our main/dessert to go! Sadly, the noise was coming from a large group that apparently knew the owner. Several tables were incredibly angry and annoyed by the loudness...two *separate* tables asked them to tone it down (note, this didn't help much) and another table actually left the restaurant just before ordering their food. If people are allowed to continue such inappropriate behavior I'm certain business will be affected...it's really too bad because this restaurant seemed like a wonderful neighborhood gem.
