    Everything was lacking, including forgetting our reservation note request, unacceptable. Especially considering the exuberant prices for what you get and the large gratuities expected.

    The Caesar salad was a sizeable portion that can feed three or four. The surf and turf special was delicious. My wife enjoyed the production for the fettuccine and the "wheel of cheese". Overall a terrific experience and will be visiting again soon!

    Went here Wednesday, June 22, 2022 for an early birthday dinner with my fiancé and his parents. It was mine and my fiancé second time there and their first time there. We all agreed the overall ambiance was very romantic quiet and nice. The food is a little bit pricey but you get what you pay for. The service was friendly and very knowledgeable. The drinks were very nice as well. Overall we had a very delightful time and it is a great place for a romantic feel as well special occasions. My only personal downside was in between each course was a little bit of a longer wait time in normal but overall we were very satisfied.

    If you love Italian, or just amazing food this is the place to go. We have been here a few times and we leave full and never disappointed. Our waiter was Glen and he went out of his way to ensure everything was perfect, and our table was happy. We were celebrating my daughters graduation from University, Glen came out of the back with a dessert for her and made her feel extra special. Won’t be the last time I come to eat at Violino’s.

    I have been here lots but this time seemed a bit worse. We had our bottle of sparkling water spilled on the table and us. We were not told the specials for the evening and they screwed up both our 50$ steaks. Which they replaced just the meat for 1 of them and had no manager come over and talk to us to apologize or anything and didn't offer us any compensation for the mishap.

    Dinner started off with an oil and vinegar bread dip. The bread that was served was quite hard and stale. We ordered a lobster artichoke dip as a starter and it had no lobster in it. The mojitos we ordered were wildly expensive 34 dollars for two, i ordered chicken fettuccine and it was quite bland very under salted and the chicken was dry. We sat on the patio on a warm day 21 degrees with no breeze and they had their large patio heater on. It was very hot and uncomfortable. Other patrons asked one of the servers to please turn it off and they were told no. The servers were not overly friendly. Over all a large let down and a poor value. We will not be giving this place a second chance and for that reason would not recommend

    Thanks so much for a wonderful dining experience. Our server is the best and the food and atmosphere is outstanding. Our server, so sorry her name escapes me (Regina, from Romania??) is so super friendly. Can't wait to see you again and try the tableside fettuccini! Have a great trip to Romania and will book again with Violino in September once our family is back to Edmonton. Rick

    This was a most relaxing, tasty, well-served meal. Our waitress was well-informed about which menu items I could order (to deal with my health issues), and presentation of the delicious meal was excellent. The calm atmosphere made for a delightful dining experience. After several years of COVID isolation, this dining adventure was a perfect outing! The spacing between tables was perfect. Such a delight to be in such a welcoming place!

    The space was tight though ambience is cozy. We ordered a seafood platter and a couple of glasses of wine. The seafood was ok, not spectacular, only have 2 scallops and 2 prawns plus 2 deep fried crab cakes and deep fried calamari. The plate was $48. A glass of Pinot Grigio was $14.95.

    The table across from us was so loud The waitresses were speaking a foreign language around us … very rude There was a large group behind us …. No door and they were loud My lasagna was horrible!!!! There was a German sausage on top of it …. Nothing Italian about it! My partners meal he understood to be only cheese ravioli. The waitress stumbled when explaining the ravioli and made it sound like the mixed seafood was another dish Very disappointing meal and evening

    The service felt rushed and food was less that average. Only one waitres and as she said, make your mind quick because "I'm very bussy right now". We wait for long time and then, the pasta in a wheel cheese was done in seconds like they need to get done with it and move on. I could keep talking about the experience, but let's just say that there are better italian restaurants in town.

    While the food was good, it wasn’t fantastic. For the price it should have been fantastic. I had the halibut, the fish was good, but the potato pave was very dry and lacking flavour. My husband had the surf and turf special which he said was good but vey over priced for what you get. The scallops were tenor tiny, the lobster tail was over cooked and the ribeye was about as thin a steak as you can get. Also the steak had no seasoning but the sauce it was served with saved it.Again we thought for what we got the pricing was over the top.

    Fantastic venue, amazing service with some absolutely fantastic food. Maybe a bit expensive, but I see the worth in every dollar they charge! The atmosphere was amazing, with calming ambient music to fill the air. Could get a bit loud with all the customers but overall would recommend to anyone looking for a date or special occasion for dining. Would love to come back in the summer to be able to experience their patio dining and pizza!

    Overall an excellent experience…service was outstanding…ambience was excellent….Caesar Salad was very good…Risotto was exceptional… But I should have known better not to order halibut in an Italian restaurant! Unfortunately the previously frozen fish was over cooked, and was somewhat dry and stringy….although the Cajun rub and grilled vegetables were an excellent accompaniment…it’s a shame we can’t get fresher seafood in Edmonton on a more consistent basis!
