Always a great experience here. The food, service and dining is a pleasure!
It was Valentine’s Day the menu was ok, the shrimp was over cooked but the waitress came right back with another plate that was much better. The unpleasant experience was that the air conditioning was blowing right overtop of our table. I asked if it could be turned off and it was for about 5 min and then it came back on. I then moved seats and asked to speak with the manager and asked him to stand where I was sitting and tell me how he felt. He said it’s cold “but that’s what happens with a 109 yr old house”. Needles to say, while he took $50.00 off my $300.00 bill it was an unpleasant evening. Don’t think I will be going back.
Ambience was excellent as was the presentation of the 7 course Valentine's Day meal. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience - start to finish.
A great Valentines Day experience. The service and atmosphere are amazing. Food was great, quite pricey but overall a fantastic experience.
Very quiet and comfortable dining. Attentive service. Amazing sharing appetizers for 2 which was perfect for 4. Entrees were huge . Needed a take home box.
Awesome service from a local family-owned restaurant. Highly Recommended.
Make Violino whatever you need it to be. Romantic, special occasions, visiting friends and family (not child friendly), or simply just indulging in amazing fine Italian food.
So many great options on the menu. Tried many —- all amazing. Can’t wait to return!
The restaurant is lovely
The food is good
The management is terrible. We were actually given unwashed cutlery, and mugs. Very bad. When I asked that the manager be notified, we didn’t even get an apology.
In summary, this place has lots of potential but terrible management
I’m never going back there again
This restaurant never fails to impress. Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, wonderful ambience. They do the little "extras" which make for a great experience.
Truly exceptionally good food, with unique recipes and presentation. Service too was excellent with our knowledgeable, polite and friendly server(Mido). Meal was pricey for a lunch but worth it!
Never disappoints. Feel special going here. Returning this weekend in fact!
Violino has been my favorite resteraunt for many years. The food is wonderfully prepared and I have never been dissapointed.
Our table was very intimate and allowed very good conversation with my date. The service was wonderful with the server and the owner coming to make sure everything was up to our expectations. The menu and wine list allowed for so many great choices. My date had the Maple Salmon entree and I had the special Surf & Turf. Both meals were delicious and plentiful. Then it was time for desert which was awesome Tiramisu. The prices are what you would expect for such fine dining in this incredible old house turned restaurant. We will be back !!
My fiancée and I went for our date night dinner here and were not disappointed. The food was incredible. The staff very knowledgeable (even about the age of the house and it’s history) as well as attentive. We loved the food and the quaint atmosphere.
Food was amazing. We had bought a $99 Romantic Dinner certificate at Christmas so used it on the 27th. of January. Service was not bad - the original waiter seemed to "drop us" after our meal was brought out and we ended up with another waitress. Kind of felt we were left in limbo for awhile. Wonder who actually got the tip that was left from the the certificate and as well the exra tip left for the drinks coffee and dessert.
We were seated next to the stairs and every time someone would walk up or down the stair their shose would pass very close to our table surface wehere our food is supposed to be, let alone the noise of the foot steps of people walking up and down. We asked who I think is the (Service Manager) to change our table and he did immediately (Thanks to him). I really recommend removing that table or at least changing the stairs fence by installing a board instead of the bars so at least no one gets any dirt in their food because of the shoes passing by or at least any dust from the carpet.
First time here. Very nice area in Edmonton, location and restaurant was very pleasant. Server was very competent, attentive and friendly.
The appetizers we ordered were presented well and enjoyed. We had Arancini, Bruschetta and Crab Cakes
Main entrees were enjoyed. Ribeye steak was one of the best had in a while. Ravioli and pasta with Bolognese also good. The biggest critique of this restaurant is the price of the food vs the the quality. Everything is over priced. I had the lasagna for $29. I expect to be wowed! It was over ‘reheated’, over powered with sausage and not fresh pasta.
Would we go back? Likely not. No dessert and only 1 glass f wine for a table of 4 and the total bill was over $200 before tip.
A fantastic find. Whether a date or a family and friends get together it’s the place to go
Service was great. Our server was fantastic. The food however was extremely poor. Everything was over cooked and very dry. I would be embarrassed to serve it. To bad as it’s a cute restaurant. Definitely wouldn’t go back.
