Our first time at Villa Firenze was an unexpected surprise of Italian delights in a warm, cosy atmosphere and exceptional service. The food transports you to Italy itself, with its delicious flavors — with ample vegetarian options which is so appreciated! We could not have...asked for a more special evening. Highly recommended!More

Once again, Villa Firenze delivered great food and excellent service. Our last visit was on a busy Saturday evening and I would certainly recommend making reservations as I am not too sure whether they would always be able to accommodate walk-ins. On this visit, I...chose the daily pasta special - a Cannelloni made with home made pasta and stuffed with veal, mushrooms and capicollo ham together with cheese while my husband had their regular Cannelloni alla Fiorentina. For a starter, we stayed with the fresh bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. Unfortunately, neither one of us had room for dessert. Our server was very friendly and attentive to our needs but we never felt rushed. The restaurant itself provides an intimate setting. My only problem was that the lighting is quite dim, I didn’t bring my glasses so had difficulty in reading the menu - luckily, husband to the rescue who remembered from previous visits! I continue to recommend Villa Firenze and I know we will be visiting again.More

Villa Firenze has been one of my favourite go-to places for Italian food for a number of years so it wasn't a difficult decision when we were looking for somewhere to celebrate our anniversary. I chose the Gnocchi alla Bolognese and my husband had the...Cannelloni alla Fiorentina. Both were tasty with good portions and, in fact, I had enough leftovers for another meal! There is a good selection on the menu from appetizers to desserts. The service was excellent, as usual - friendly, helpful staff who made sure everything was satisfactory. This is the place for a leisurely meal but, even with the reduced seating, it does tend to get a bit noisy. I think it is always a good idea to make a reservation here, especially during these days of COVID-19 as it is a popular location and as previously stated, there are less tables due to current restrictions. I continue to recommend this restaurant and I know we will return again.More

My wife and I attended on August 28,2020 for lunch. The owner/server was great and very engaged with us in conversation. She made several recommendations about the daily specials. The pizza was killer! And, the sea bass perfetto! It’s a little more American/Canadian Italian, but...well worth the money. The decor was nice (all wood blinds) and typical of a family business with Italian flare! We will be back!More

Six of us went to celebrate a birthday and were taken very good care of. Our water, wine and drinks were never empty. The food was spaced out nicely so you didn't feel rushed. Pina was our server and she went well beyond to may...our visit a very enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their meals except me. I had the fish special and I didn't like the fish and with no hesitation Pina took it away and quickly had a veal dish in front of me that I enjoyed very much. The restaurant is very intimate and you felt like family while there.More

A new fave for special occasions...or simply a quiet night out. Wonderful kitchen in back and excellent service in front. Menu complete with both classical Italian favourites and adventurous house specialities. Parking at the side.

Visiting Calgary and a friend of mine took me to this venue for Italian food. The quality of the pasta dish (Clam Linguine) was good and the pricing was reasonable. The restaurant provided very friendly service.

I have lived in Calgary 20+ years and I have never been to Villa Firenze. Why? I'm asking myself that same question since having a beautiful dinner there over the weekend for my birthday. This place is the real deal for Italian food and service....There were three of us, all ordering different dishes: Chicken, veal, and pasta with prawns.They were all delicious. You also get a generous portion of veggies which are steamed but not soft (in fact, they come to you with a bit of crunch). The foccaccia bread you get prior to your meal is insanely good (dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar - the best). We started off with a special appetizer - portobello mushroom in a parmesan sauce with parmesan cheese on top - melted in our mouths. I will be back, that much I can guarantee. A completely delightful evening!More

Had not been to this restaurant in several years. Went there last Saturday and had a wonderful meal. There were four of us and we ate "family style". Started with their stuffed mushrooms, which are not on the menu but worth requesting. Then we shared...two pasta dishes and two main dishes. It was all good.More
