My co-worker recommended this place for a date night. I wasn’t sure what to expect as he is quite a bit older then me. Well I can’t stop raving about our experience. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the decor was warm and the food was incredible!
We had the mushroom appetizer, which our waitress recommended. It was delectable!!!!! I had the sea bass and my husband had a pasta dish and we could barely finish it. I have never had a sea bass done so perfectly. We were too full to have dessert but we will definitely be back to try out their nutella cheese cake and tiramisu.

Lasagne and tortellini were excellent but the veal osso buco was tough and very fatty. The risotto was disappointing as it was not creamy and the tomato sauce it was swimming in was overpowering. The cheesecake and cappuccino were perfection. The service was excellent as was the ambiance. We always come here when we visit Calgary and will definitely be back.

We have been going to Villa Firenze for years. We found the staff as delightful as always, and very respectful of all Covid -19 recommendations. Our meal was the best it has been. The salads were crisp and filled with flavour. The gnocchi was as heavenly as ever. (My wife dreams of this dish and all dreams came true) My lasagna was full of flavour, rich and the cheese was perfect. All and all a fantastic way to spend our 6th Anniversary.

Got home and got violently ill after eating there. The food tasted a bit off and it most certainly was. Sad as it was a favourite that we won’t go back to.

Good food. Not my favourite Italian in the city, but my first time there wasn't a let down. I had the veal flank. Not something I typically order. The veal was fantastic. It came with risotto, which was alright. I think a pasta side would have been better suited personally. Huge quantity. Their bread started was incredible! The to tiramisu was different than others but very good, it had a bit more of a cheesy taste and not as boozy as I'd typically like but it was very good.

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and did not disappoint. The food was so fresh , everything arrived in perfect timing, our waitress was very attentive but not constantly interrupting our meal. It was my husbands 60th bday celebration with dear friends and was a wonderful memory made.

Carla & Queen gave us excellent service and we had a most enjoyable visit with friends. The food and beverage were nothing short of your excellent tastes and were well talked about with our full bellies and take home for everyone. It was delicious the next day for lunch and brought back fond memories of the previous evening. As I always say it is a neighborhood gem and not to be missed.

We continue to go to Villa Firenze, because of the consistency of food and beverage, but also the excellence service we receive. It truly is a gem, and so welcoming. Their standard is one for more places to strive for in Calgary.

Wonderful as always; Queenie is always so pleasant and attentive. Thanks so much. If I had one request it would be that customers be asked to put their phones on vibrate while in the restaurant. There are few things more annoying than a loud phone ringing on more than one occasion while you’re having a lovely lunch.

This was our first time at this restaurant as our go to Italian restaurant has seemingly gone under. The food was very good and tasty and at just the right temperatures. The service provided was attentive and friendly. The restaurant was fairly quiet but that was largely due to the additional spacing and limited guests due to the current restrictions. It was quite warm inside and would have liked a bit more ventilation. I would recommend any friends to try this establishment and will likely go again at some point.
