The ambience of the restaurant is lovely and the service was superb. Unfortunately the food was highly salted for my liking. The gnocchi with pesto and sundried tomatoes was presented well but too salty. The salmon entree was ok. The salmon was prepared well but had fishy smell, and the bed of barley it was on was overly salty and lemony.
To be fair, they did not charge for the salmon as I could not eat it, and to be fair we did leave a 30% tip for the Service.
Recommend they ease up on the salt.

Food was very good the pork belly was very tasty... Calamari was very good... The lobster lasagna was good but very small portion. Must have the tiramisu for dessert and a decaf coffee goes extremely well with the desert.

Our server Jeremy was very good.

Was expecting some good wholesome Italian food but instead got the opposite. Super salty and lack of imagination throughout every course. The only great part was Desert and the service. At $200.00 with only two glasses of wine I would expect more.

I would not recommend if your are looking for pure authentic Italian food.

Met a friend here for dinner. Waitress was great to give us some catch-up time before we ordered.
Ordered 4 courses - appetizers, salads, mains and dessert. Aranchini was ok...not really flavourful and size-wise were small like Malted Milk Balls. Calamari was very tasty and a good one to share. The beet salad was an artistic masterpiece, and oh so tasty! Would have liked a few more beets but the combination on the plate was fantastic. We ordered the seafood lasagna and the gnudi. Friend said the lasagna was very good, gnudi was good but lacked some flavour. Dessert was beautifully presented and both the panna cotta and chocolate mousse were very good.

All in all a very enjoyable meal and evening. The restaurant itself is beautiful so makes any occasion a special one!!

It was a wonderful experience. The staff was very accommodating to fit a wheelchair in amd make it seem effortless. The staff was friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was simple, and executed to perfection. We will definitely be back and spread the word on the exemplary meal we enjoyed.

PRE-PARTY EXPERIENCE: Called and left a message to make a reservation for 8 people for my fiancé's birthday. I specifically asked them to text me back and to refrain from calling as I didn't want to blow the surprise dinner. Well, they called me back and woke both my fiancé and I at 1:00 in the morning to confirm the reservation.... let's say we were not amused and it did blow the surprise.
DECOR: Amazing decor in a very old and historical building. The decor is likely the best aspect of the restaurant.
FOOD: Food was fine, nothing to write home about. The calamari was too salty, and was also a bit saggy. The waiter talked us into ordering the lasagna, which was OK, but not great, basically a lot of tomato sauce with some seafood.
WINE: Good wine selection, but takes a little while to get the bottle. If you don't want to be out of wine as you start eating your main course, make sure you order the bottle in advance.
TIPPING: They added 20% gratuity on the bill which is fine, however, they failed to inform us so we ended up double tipping. When I asked them to get a refund, the waiter said that he had made it clear to everyone that the gratuity was included. Funny because absolutely nobody heard him say it and why would we tip 20% twice? Anyway, they ended up reimbursing the extra tip.

We have loved going to Teatro ever since it opened. The food is normally very good. We had pickerel on risotto with blanched kale feature dish this night. I prefer fish under done but the pickerel was so under done as to be raw and hard to cut with the knife and very dense no separation of flakes. The fish, risotto and kale were so over salted we could barely finish it. We both had the feature. Both excessively salty. If we weren’t running out of time for a concert nearby we would have returned the dishes. Someone had to have tasted the risotto before serving it? But that should not have been sent out.

We came to teatro to celebrate my birthday. upon receiving the bill, we noticed that one of the bottles of wine was wrongly charged an additional 20 dollars. I can only assume how many times this has happened and patrons have blindly paid additional mark ups without noticing. After we inquired about the "error", we sat for 50 minutes while the staff tried to correct the bill. During this time NO ONE came by to offer us coffee, water, ANYTHING. They stated the computers failed, fine, is it really that difficult to punch in -20$ on a debit/credit machine and figure out and fix the system after?! The lack of service and accommodation (not to mention, if you wrongly overcharge your patrons, the lack of apology) ruined the experience. I would not recommend, and I would advise anyone who is thinking of going to double check your bills.

Arrived at 12:40, after the lunch rush, and we were told we had to finish our meal by 2. We ordered as quick as the server would let us.

Food arrived at 1:25, so needless to say we were very rushed in eating.

Quality of food was reasonable, but not what I expect from a high-end dining experience.

Teatro, as well as the Teatro Group, have always been known for quality of service as well as food. Unfortunately, this has not been the case during our dining experience at Teatro. Service was cordial and polite. Sure, a bit out of the ordinary for Calgary, but nothing genuine. 2 wines we inquired about were not available and both meals (gnocchi and tagliatelle) were extremely boring with no taste or substance. Definitely not worth the price being charged. I also emailed the restaurant directly 2 days ago as a courtesy and still awaiting a response. Hopefully they can get things under control. I recommend other establishments if possible.

Beautiful Restaurant, but mediocre service and food. Duck breast was rubbery and difficult to cut. Complained about the tough duck - waitress was unapologetic and apathetic. Service was leisurely to slow. Food was mediocre for the price. This was my third dinner here and it seems that the nothing has changed. Will not return.

We went for our sons 18 birthday his choice and since he will be going to sait for culinary we thought it was a perfect choice. Our server was clearly new because we had to flag her down for drinks ask for help with menu items and then our food didn’t come out consistently because I don’t think it was ordered correctly. When the food arrived it was amazing as always and normally I would rate this restaurant a five out of five but this particular experience they get a three

This was a return visit after many years so it as a nice surprise to see how its retained its elegance; the building itself, the renovations over the years and its classy ambiance. It was a quiet Sunday evening so no problems with noise and over busy-ness. The service was excellent and the food superb. One suggestion: one or two options for side dishes to accompany the main dish would be nice.

Teatro has been one of our favourite special occasion locations in Calgary. They did not let us down. This was my mother-in-law's birthday dinner. Our family was treated very well.

The server was the best. She had patience to help my father in-law, who is dealing with memory loss, to choose his dinner and drink. She ensured our 6 dinners were brought out in time so we could get to the theatre on time. She recommended a wine to match my dinner that was spot on.
