We went for my mother’s birthday and the waiter brought her a free surprise desert with a candle at the end of the night. Thank you!
An historical building just west of the downtown heart of Edmonton, this restaurant provides diners excellent cuisine and exceptional service, both within a charming setting.
We went for our anniversary and it was incredible. Great service and atmosphere and the food was wonderful.
Definitely be back. Loved the room, the service and of course the food. Classy dining experience in a vintage atmosphere.
Dining no here is always a great experience...great food...great ambience...great service!
This was our first visit to Violino's and we would highly recommend this restaurant. Food and service were excellent.
We've eaten at Violino several times and always being quite delighted with the food. This time it was not quite as good. Two people had beef tenderloin and the medium well and the medium were exactly the same. There was a real lack of food on the plate for the price they charged. Another person had the full rack of lamb and enjoyed it. They also let themselves down with their desserts, bread pudding was dry with a lump of ice cream in it.
Violino Restorante is one of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton. The food, wine, ambiance and service are outstanding! I would highly recommend Violino to everyone celebrating a special occasion or just a nice quiet evening out.
Wonderful place to celebrate 35th Anniversary.
Don't push me. This is my review; take it or leave it.
Very nice meal. Great ambiance and Phenomenal service.
We had a lovely evening meal at Violino
Ana the sever was fantastic and the fettuccine was awesome as always!
Waited at the front for a bit and then had to look around into the kitchen to get someone’s attention. Server was really friendly and nice. Food was awful. So bad we could eat it and left. Will not go back
Hi - we have been there many times either for birthdays and special occasion and also for the summer lunches outside. Chose this for their food and knowledge of their menu. Staff ver good and of course the manager. Thanks. Fabio and family
Fabulous food and wonderful service!
It felt like there was a change of management since we visited last. I remember the food being much better. My short ribs and my husband’s in bone pork was over-cooked. And I couldn’t believe they served our $45 per plate food on plastic plates. Our waiter was very nice and gave us a free birthday dessert to share. But he was a little too chatty and tried to sell gift certificates. Which I found inappropriate.
What an Amazing Restaurant! Violino never disappoints. Thank you!
Anniversary dinner that I could not ask for a better experience. Service and food were exceptional.
Awesome atmosphere, great service and amazing food . A very nice place for dates , special occasions and romantic dinners . Upstairs seating is the best for romantic dinners. The servers are amazing very friendly. The Philippine guy who served us the last time we were there wasn't out server this time but he came and said hi at our table . We were here for our son's 19th Birthday. From the door to the table , food and service is top notch . Our server is so attentive and friendly . I love how she interacted with us and not just the how is everything so far . They go far and beyond Our son got a complimentary dessert although he does not have a sweet tooth he enjoyed it . I highly reccomend this restaurant you won't be disappointed . All of the staff there are very happy and friendly. Keep up the good work
Nothing special for a very high price. Nothing that compares to previous operator La Spiga.
Fine dining Italian cuisine, I will go again! I was impressed with the food. Made from scratch... :)
Outstanding service, and the food was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend
This us one of the best places to go for an outstanding meal.
Thank you to Adrian for his professionalism, attentiveness and personalized service.
Amazing experience. People dining next to us so happy! Food was next level. If you go get Danny as a server you are very lucky! Made our special night just a memorable night.
It’s an amazing place
Intimate and tasty
I’d like to recognize our server, Anne, and the other staff for their excellent service. We advised ahead of time that we were Deaf, and they welcomed us prepared to communicate with text. Significantly, they also did not attempt to speak or make us lipread - this really was critical for creating a truly inclusive environment and letting us be our full selves. Unfortunately this necessary behaviour is very rare in the service and hospitality industries, so it is all the more appreciated for making our evening even more special. Thank you!
While the individual plates are expensive, meals here are amazing. The restaurant itself is quaint and the service is generally attentive.
Certainly a place to go for a special occasion.
Was great, got a free desert for our anniversary. Was unexpected and appreciated! Very personable and classy establishment.
We went for a lunch time date and had a wonderful meal. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone who has an appreciation of Italian cuisine. Service and food were both exceptional
Amazing. Nothing more to say
Very disappointed in the food. The sea bas was nothing like what I would have expected. very few vegetables on the plate.
Lunch wasnt expensive for a good quality ...mido is amazing and not rushing...
Food was good seafood pasta with calamata sundried tomato sauce is a must try dish... service is amazing....ill come back for sure...
This is the second time we’ve been here as we are from Sask. each visit to Edmonton will include this restaurant. Jessor served us this year as he did last year and truly remembered who we were and knew even where we had sat. He is so attentive and knowledgeable and his service is outstanding. The food is prepared with care and the wine list is very reasonably priced with lots of mid-point pricing. A higher end feel and great value. Thank you!
The service was personal from the moment we entered. The staff was incredibly professional, friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious with a perfectly sized portion. The ambiance was perfect for the occasion, ( a third date and of course I’m trying to impress!) Thanks to the kitchen staff, servers, and hosts who made our evening one we will remember for a very long time. 😀
Over priced menu...server was wearing a dirty shirt and was distracted! Small portions of food for the price! Felt rushed!
Very accommodating regarding seating on the patio. Very hot and sunny and they made a table with more shade available. Best Birthday desert ever 👍
