Everything was so delicious and authentic. Lots of vegetarian options to choose from and my favorite dish was the Gnocchi Ai Funghi with the gorgonzola cheese fondue sauce!!! Would definitely recommend and go back for more pasta dishes.

The monthly Sunday night fixed menu was above and beyond our expectations. We opted for the wine pairing which was perfect for each course. Service was exceptional. Highly recommended

The restaurant is non-descript and spartan. The choice of cocktails is very good and imaginative. Try the amoros.
We didn't try the pizzas but the pastas, ensaladas and others options were well priced and enjoyed by our group.
A good start and we will go again.

First time at this local restaurant and it was fantastic. Great food! They ran out of Tiramisu (a favourite) but the owner was apologetic about it and made us some yummy desserts! Thank you!

Very hospitable service from the owner. Rally enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It is a lively place . I liked that . Gnocchi melts in your mouth . Gelato nice finish . Owner was very accommodating to our every need. Try the limoncello too. Sangria was good not sweet. Being American from America where’s the 🥖 to start the meal ? Lol that and the freshly grated Parmesan cheese for pasta dishes. That would be my only recommendation. Loved the whole experience.

Food was delicious as were the drinks. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and attentive service on a Saturday night. Reservations were early, 5:00 for 4 people. Appetizers, dinner and dessert plus drinks, wine and coffee came in at an on par price point. Will return.

Our group of four decided to order a number of dishes to share Aperitivo style.
We started with the polpette and caprese salad. Both came out in a timely manner and were a great way to start the meal.
We then ordered gnocchi al pomodoro, seafood risotto and meat filled ravioli. It was the perfect amount of food for 4 people to share.
We also ordered the margherita pizza. Came out more like a flat bread. The crust was thin and crispy than the sauce to cheese ratio was perfect. It lacked a bit of freshness, and some basil would’ve made it better.
We all shared the tiramisu which again was the right amount for a taste of something sweet.

We love SS106! The atmosphere is not that of a fine dining restaurant, or a hipster restaurant but you go here for the amazing food and service. The food is high quality and cooked to absolute perfection. We love the meatballs, the gnocchi (so, so, so good), the pizza and the homemade tiramisu. And not to be missed: the peach grappa!!
We’ve had the same server the last few times and he is incredible. Very friendly and passionate about the menu! And the restaurant is very family friendly with reasonable prices.

Good family restaurant ambiance but we expected more from the food. Some food was excellent, like the homemade gnocchi which is clearly a restaurant specialty, but other dishes were just average Italian fare.

We were a group of four fellows, business associates, who were there for the first time. We met Dominique, the owner who was very accommodating. The restaurant is quite casual. We were there for a late lunch when it was not overly busy. I imagine it might get noisy at night. We tried a number of the menu items which were all excellent. They have a large and very good list of Italian wines with quite reasonable prices.

One issue is parking. There is a Calgary Parking Authority lot right adjacent to the restaurant but it is quite small. Street parking was difficult to find.

We certainly intend to go back and would recommend the restaurant for high quality Italian food.
