Food was fantastic. We waited for a while to get our table- there was confusion with the reservations and operating at 50% capacity. The staff was apologetic and comped our wine for the wait.

Our first night out after the great pandemic of 2020.
Bucatini is new on the menu...enjoyed that much. Antipasti of fennel and grapefruit salad was refreshing but a bit dingy looking due to the use of balsamic vinegar which made everything dark coloured.... Not really a terribly appetizing look to the dish. Perhaps white balsamic might be the right choice for this?

Visited Cardinale for a girls dinner. The food was delicious but the services was absolutely atrocious! We had to prompt our server was everything - to order drinks, order food, refill water, clear plates etc. I could not believe how disappointing the service was, really makes me consider visiting again.

Great food but super slow service. Just simply not staffed for that many tables so I don’t think I’d go for a business lunch again. Great spot for a slow dinner though as the food was really good.

Great Italian fare served with good quality pasta. I did not feel stuffed despite eating the entire lasagna! Very creative cocktails. Perfect place to catch a meal before the game but make sure you have reservations - it gets full quickly!

As always, we enjoy dining at Cardinale when we are attending an event at either the Saddledome or the BMO Centre. The service is friendly and efficient, and the food is delicious. The restaurant can get loud as there are a lot of tables in a pretty small space, but we definitely recommend this restaurant.

It was a small menu but it was focused on flavour. Drinks were fun and delicious. Great location and a good vibe. We are middle aged and it was not too young and hip. Loved it. The Caesar salad is delicious and the calamari is cool.
