We have been going to Villa Firenza for many years and it has become my favourite restaurant in Calgary..however the waitress we had this time was not very attentive and even forgot to bring a glass of wine ordered mid meal. This service was atypical for the restaurant. Also, we waited quite awhile for our main meal (35 minutes) as there was an event in the party annex. Neither of these concerns will keep us from going back though!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Villa Firenze. The owner came by and chatted with us several times. We shared the baked portabella mushroom appetizer which was delicious. My husband asked if they could make something he enjoys but was not on the menu. They were very accommodating and prepared some shrimps Parmesan style. He loved the dish and the gracious way they handled his request. I had the veal in gargonzola cream sauce .it was excellent. This is a great neighborhood restaurant. We are from the States, otherwise we would become regulars.

If you want authentic, handmade Italian food you won’t find a better place to eat. A little taste of Italy in the middle of Canada.

Husband and I went to Villa Firenze based on a co-worker’s recommendation. We had Luka as our server and he was great! Food was amazing, service was friendly and attentive, and the menu had lots of choices. We tried the portabella mushroom appetizer (not on the menu, so you must ask for it) and it is so delicious. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to family, friends, and other co-workers. We look forward to our next occasion as I’m sure it will be celebrated there. So many items to try on the menu that we have to go back! We’ve lived in Calgary for 17+ years...this restaurant was a treasure to learn about. True authentic Italian cuisine.

Villa Firenze is heads above many restaurants in Calgary for me. They have authentic Italian food with amazing ambience and wine selection. The waiter staff (kudos to Luca) are exceptional. The food and service is exceptional and I will be back for my birthday!!

We always remind ourselves that we have to come to Villa Firenze moe often!
Everyone's meal was excellent and the service was top-notch. We were even offered
homemade plum cookies to take home just because the owners had plums growing in their garden--reminded me of our travels to Tuscany and the warm-hearted people there. Grazie mille!

We enjoyed our evening but it was not as good as previous times, which was a few years ago. It did not seem to have the same ambience for us. It used to be special but now it is the same other restaurants for us.

Food was over salted, Veal was tough, not what i would expect from veal. My wife had salmon quite dry and again over seasoned. Vegetables: I guess they were going for crunchy but seemed like they had merely been peeled. The Brunello was good.

We have gone to the Villa for many years and the consistency of the food and beverages is amazing. We always have excellent service, and it is unmatched in satisfying their customers expectations. The daily specials are truly wonderful and have the same quality as other selections on their extensive menus. Pina and Joe are like family and they make sure you never go home wishing for more.

We had an early lunch before catching a flight. The majority of our meals were excellent. The vegetables that came with the chicken could have been cooked a bit more, Linguine and clam sauce was also very tasty. Portions were a good enough size. The price point was very good for the food, but the wine was pricey. Our server was very energetic and very helpful.
