This is a wonderful restaurant with an Italian feel. The food is incredible, and in my opinion, a fair price for the quality. Service was just as great. I would definitely recommend this place for any occasion.

We went with all the daily specials - Appy, main, and dessert - on a Saturday night. Reliably delicious. I get the sense you can't go wrong with any item on the menu, really. Allowed us to focus on catching up with friends. Will be back.

3rd generation owners and the same cook for 26 years equals great quality friendly service and all around fun atmosphere. Nice place to go for business and or pleasure. And make sure you try out the portobello mushroom appi. You won't be disappointed give it a try.

I wanted to like this lovely Italian restaurant. The decor is relaxing and the staff professional but the food was just mediocre. They need to ensure the food quality matches the reputation of this restaurant. Calgary has come such a long way in their restaurant scene that this establishment has not kept up with the times.

I loved Villa Firenze from their mushroom appetizer to their home made lasagna. They are exceptionally accommodating in orders (my parter didn't like green peppers to they substituted mushrooms) and the meal was perfect. The service is great especially if you have the pleasure of getting served by Pina. She is funny and outgoing and genuine and loves offering her... More

One of the best family Italian restaurants in Calgary- Food is so good, I've seriously tried all the pasta dishes and I Love them all. Must have the Portobello mushroom appetizer with Brandy sauce...WOW! Great wine list and service is fantastic. The Ambiance is cozy and great for date night!

Anniversary dinner. Set and in the more industrial portion of Bridgeland, the service and meal more than made up for the setting and lack of view. Our server was knowledgeable about the wines and menu, our hostess was happy to see us, and the food was amazing. Ask for the "special" portobello mushroom as a starter. You won't be disappointed....

The latest gathering at Villa Firenze was for an awesome winemaker's dinner. Each course was perfectly paired of course with wonderful Italian wines. Pina stopped by to say hello and wish us well and we were seated among some newbies to the restaurant which was fun. I looked ahead and noticed their delicious portabello mushroom appetizer was on our menu... More

Love this place. My Husband and I went here on our very first date four years ago. This has become a tradition for birthdays and special occasions and have introduced many people to their food. The Service is always amazing and the food absolutely delicious- have never had a bad meal here.
