Great coffee shop in day, awesome wine bar at night

This place is a hidden gem. The design is full of stimulating art. The atmosphere is one of a kind and the coffee and food is fantastic!! It is located in the heart of East Village. Great service and the products (food & coffee) are from local producers! I want to see this place grow! Best coffee I have had in Calgary - finally! I will be visiting for wine tonight before my night out on the town!

We ordered salt and pepper crab and shrimp fried rice. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked.
Our waitress her name is Kiki she's very attentive and all smiles.We ask her to give us cutleries coz we don't know how to use chopsticks and she came back rushing.She even gave us a free dessert.
This place is awesome !

We stayed at Econolodge and chose this place because of its rating and only few steps away from the hotel. The food was out of this world! We shared the grilled platter with garlic rice and ohhh my, it was so tasty.
Wow! That's all we can say, it was wonderful, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It was totally awesome! Dishes were top notch! You must try...

This was the first time for me at this location and was worried the place would not be as good.
Still a winner, food is the same and consistent, great service and warm atmosphere. Will definitely come back for more. I just love how the sushi platter is presented to you, just make it very inviting.

My poor nostrils.

I have the misfortune of huffing in the disgusting scent of this restaurant every morning and evening, coming and leaving work.

Against my better judgement, I decided to try the Waffle Sandwich. What a mistake. There is no silver lining in this dark cloud. Poorly crafted soggy waffles. Think Best Western breakfast (but worse). Incorrectly and over seasoned grease 'patty' and some other grease fried mystery meat and burnt egg. Add some lettuce and tomato for no apparent reason and you have this monstrosity. After one bite and and glistening fingers I had to put it down spit it out and rinse my mouth with Listerine. Why would anyone want to eat this? Why? I guess it's a less messy way to commit suicide. The potato pancakes were just soggy vegetable oiled rinsed hashbrowns shaped into a hockey puck and lazily fried on the flat top. The food is bad, and I've heard nothing but poor reviews from colleagues and other tenants in the building.

The service and staff are bizarre. I'm sorry to be rude and blunt, but don't have an open kitchen if you're going to have your staff create food and service clients looking like they just rolled out of bed without appropriate kitchen attire. Also staff conducts themselves as if they're in a dive bar. Which leads me to the ambiance of this place. Not much to say I guess, It's ugly, and absolutely designed by a guy. I've never seen more than 2 people in this place where safeway/bumpy's and good earth are always busy.

It's unfortunate that we waited over a year for a restaurant to open downstairs only to get this.

Overhaul your staff, menu, pricing and cooking practices and maybe you'll be successful. Or Don't. I don't care, I won't ever be back

New "Diner"

Sometimes the truth hurts.

Food - Ordered the pulled chicken sandwich. This consisted of large chunks of dry, flavorless chicken breast (and some other pieces) dipped in some type of orange/red sauce with lettuce and cheddar cheese. There was too much lettuce and bread. I found myself pulling off pieces to get to the meat. The only side was a pickle. The single worst pickle I have ever tried. It tasted like a cucumber had been soaked in vinegar for fifteen minutes then rinsed off with tepid water.

Service - People seemed friendly enough. However when they pass you the terminal to pay with card you have to tip 10, 20 or 25% before you've even tried the food!? I'm not a fan of tipping when I have to go up to pay, order and retrieve my food.

Value - Over priced. Was maybe a $6.50 sandwich tops.

Ambiance - I don't think they could decide what look they were going for. Decorations really only amounted to a bunch of printed google image search old pictures related to the word dominion. Music was good but didnt

I enjoy this restaurant every time i dine here. recently they revamped their menu to include dozens of wine by the glass and renovated to offer a casual dining area so i now go without my formal attire and fit right in.. and they now have a very large patio that seems to get sun all day long.. it keeps getting better.. thanx Osteria i look forward to my next visit.

My husband and I had our 15th anniversary at osteria and we were delighted. Everything was perfect, the food the service are just outstanding. The owners even bought us a bottle of champagne for our special night which was very kind of them. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This little pub is becoming one of my favorites places to go. The staff is amazing, very welcoming and friendly. The food is traditional pub food, but with a twist. We started with wings and Spinach Dip, both so delicious!! Then had a big 'Cheeseburger Pizza', which was the best pizza ever. Homemade crust and sauce. Finished every bite. Would recommend this place!!

Lasagna
By RDMorgan of Avenida Calgary (1 Review)

I ordered 4 lasagna from my home in Saskatchewan. I wanted it delivered at 5:30 pm in Calgary to our nieces home as she just had an adorable little boy July 16. But has been a pretty sick woman. Her mother and father are their taking care of mommy and the two lil tykes (2 yrs & 4 yrs old) PLUS daddy. So Gramma and Gramps have their hands full. That's why I sent food "NO COOKING" for at least one night last week.
The two fussy little ones loved the lasagna they totally enjoyed it... as did the rest of the family. The garlic toast was an extremely nice touch.

For having to do everything by phone it was wonderful that it all went so well and I want to thank Tom and his staff (delivery guy included) for the wonderful service. Sorry I forgot all about the tip for the driver. He wasn't shy though he insisted they add it to my credit card. :( oh well. I truly did forget about you.

Once again a huge thank you to Boston Pizza for being so helpful and prompt.

God Bless

Well I have been coming to this place for about 4 years now and I consider it to be consistently good, it's not great just good! In the years I have come my only complaint is the occasional dirty glass or utensil but I'll blame the dishwashing machine for that the ladies that work here mean nothing more than to please.

In my experience the options for +15 eateries can be a gamble, if you're lucky... meh but mostly yuck, or the feeling you paid way too much for a simple turkey sandwich however, this place definitely stands out. Lunch specials are a steal and the subs are spectactular. Pair quality ingredients with super friendly service and you have a stand out winner. Here you will find an owner who actually cares what you are eating (not someone who relies on high traffic to turn a profit) and is proud to tell you where he sources the bread, how the meat is marinaded etc. and you can certainly taste the difference. Well done :)

I want to start off saying the service was very good. The waitress was helpful in choosing items I was unfamiliar with.
However, I didn't really enjoy it. Maybe this place just didn't suite my taste buds. We had the pork hock and some sort of noodle stir fry. I did ask the waitress for more traditional Filipino dishes and she recommended these.
I'm not going to give it a dislike but probably won't be back.

The best night of our visit at Calgary, Osteria De Medici is the place that we heard a lot about before our trip to Calgary, our former college friends has been there before so it was highly recommended. Our reservation was at 6 pm, when we arrived our expectation was meet with what we saw, everything looks fancy, the menu looks yamii and the price was sweet. we ordered Linguini Pescatore, Osteria dinner and Italian atmosphere of Osteria, we knew we wouldn't finish all the dishes but we couldn't help it we would of tried it all if we could, the good looking waiter recommend a special wine that goes well with our dish. it didn't took long to serve our foods and we couldn't wait to have a test of all , we were amazed and overwhelmed and the fresh hot smell still with us, (lol) , it was the beautiful most delicious test of food we have ever tested, that followed with a sexy looking deserts woooow. to memory of that we oat to write this review, because sharing is happiness, and its our gift to all chick people out there to go out there and check it out , for sure you will go there again with someone special to you. The best Italian restaurant in town over all,
Can’t wait to visit you again!

Worst meal

Bought a groupon, so got what I paid for I guess. Hard, stale dinner bun for the greasy, tasteless, gooey halibut burger. Mushy sweet potatoe fries, too. Definitely will NOT go back. Should have listened to my friend who had the same experience. Probably one of the worst meals I've ever had.

We went there and surprised to see that this place is really busy. We waited there for 10-15 mins and got a table. As we sat there a waiter immediately came taking jug of water and a complementary dish of salad. We were surprised. It was the nice greeting. We ordered Following things. Appetizers : Scampi alla Osteria, Lumaghe all' Aglio Soups: Tortellini in Brodo Salads: Insalata alla Osteria, Pomodori alla Caprese Main course: Penne Arabbiata, Melanzane Parmigiana(Veg) Desert: Tiramisu Osteria All the servants were really quick and fast. They will help you choose the right items if you are visiting first time. Osteria has one of the best decoration i have ever seen. You will love it. Prices were quite in range. Our total bill was around 80-90$. I would strongly advise you to visit this place. Thumbs up..

I had my party here and service was terrible. Servers wont do anything unless you ask them too or didnt even serve the guest, they dont even help us to move some stuff. They rarely help us decorate, and they rather serve the small party or walk in rather the big party . FYI, it was a big party, there was a hundred people and I rented also one of the rooms and I paid for it for the whole day but they were kicking us out or keep asking to pack up our thing coz apparently walk ins/ maybe party is coming. The girl night manager is rude and even raised her voice when we were asking why walk in going to buffet first. They dont have patience. One thing for sure, im not coming back here again. I dont recommend to throw your big party here.
