Four of us just had dinner at this restaurant. The service was OK, but the food was really underwhelming. Seriously, I would say what once was a good place to eat has become the "Denny's" of Italian food in Calgary. Don't waste your money here....More

Great for a night out if you don't feel like cooking. Reservations are required as they do seem to be busy most nights. The food and atmosphere was ok nothing spectacular but a good night out.

This was the first time I had visited this restaurant in several years. We had good service and all pastas on the menu were half price (on a Monday). Free parking (after 6:00 pm) is available in the City of Calgary lot behind the restaurant.
