My husband and I had gone to Villa Maria several months ago and found it to be absolutely fabulous...home Cooked Italian and a casual atmosphere. We tried it again on the weekend and we're disappointed it did not measure up to the last meal. They'd moved to a new location. After 15 minutes we finally managed to find parking. Though... More

Then, we get seated and our waiter ( can't remember his name) noticed our table was a little uneven so... he Fixed it!! Then he offered us... More

I dined at Villa Maria with a group of 14 work colleagues for dinner in a Tuesday night. We were a group of Canadians, Americans, and Argentines. None of us have ever been and we decided to try something new-we are thrilled that we did! The food was absolutely stellar. The menu was expansive, the restaurant is beautiful, and the... More

Recently moved to a new location, but same owners and chef. Much nicer location now. Chic and intimate setting. Family owned and operated - Maria in the kitchen and Danny running the dining room. Some of the wait staff are young and inexperienced, but under the watchful eye of the co-owner. If something is amiss he is right there to... More

Fabulous food experience our first evening in Calgary. Would highly recommend this restaurant. My friends had the pasta and two different types of veal which were extremely tender and full of flavour. Thank you for your hospitality. Latin dancing night was also a great surprise!

I live in the area and have been to Villa Maria twice for dinner but arrived home late one evening and so decided to get something to go from Villa Maria. I ordered the Veal Montanara and it was really good. Tender veal, savory sauce, and vegetables (broccoli and carrots) cooked perfectly. I do not like mushy veggies so this... More

We arrived to the most wonderful greeting and smile by Danny. Our table of three adults and three children were given the best big table in the dining room. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday. Danny loves children and the children love him. We surveyed the family prior to selecting this restaurant for our special party and the children all...
