We made a reservation, when we arrived they said they did not have a reservation and looked annoyed.. which was strange since the place was nearly empty. No one took our drink order until we waved the waiter order after 15 minutes. The appetizer was clearly from a box and heated up. The food was average. We had to go... More

Conveniently located near central Calgary, this Italian restaurant provides free parking, nice atmosphere & nice table setting with some privacy. The price is not too expensive. The waitress is very attentive and pleasant. The food is awesome, good taste, hot temperature, quickly prepared and fresh. I ordered the seafood pasta Fruitti De Mare for $25 with jumbo shrimps, scallop, mussels... More

The decor in It's new location is not as "cool" but the room Is more spacious, with less "head noise" and better seating. The food...ah, the food .. Amazing Nuevo Italian sauces and Fresh made on site pasta. Their Caesar salad is the best in Calgary. We are locals and absolutely must go at least four times per year. Prices... More

We went recently with a group. Parking is free at the back of the restaurant. The staff were a bit overwhelmed by the size of our group but everyone got food in due course. The wine list is limited and they do not offer corkage even if you want a better wine or real champagne. That was a downer. The... More

We went here to celebrate a 70th birthday. This was our first time to eat at La Viena since the restaurant relocated. As always the food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and the food plentiful. It is a nice, quiet place to enjoy each others company. It is refreshing to eat somewhere and not have to raise your... More

Our family had a nice evening at La Viena. We sat in the lounge to see a football game on TV. but it was cool by the windows. There is a pleasant relaxed atmosphere with lots of seating. The waiter was polite and attentive. We got drinks right away and placed our order quite quickly. Shortly after that a basket... More

La Viena has become our go-to neighbourhood restaurant in Calgary's northwest. Quick to get to, ample parking, spotlessly clean, wonderful, personable service, and great food!

Had a lovely time in such a cute little establishment. The meals were wonderful but as a vegetarian it was disappointing that all (even Italian dressing) has anchovies in it. Their gluten free pasta was very tasty and I can't say enough about our sweet waitress.

The first time we went there, they had just moved/opened and the food was so bad we swore we'd never go back. But circumstances change and we found ourselves there again and what a delightful change....what Helen J says, not withstanding.

We have been to this restaurant before and really enjoyed the food, this time not so much. My Mom in law and my husband loved their food, my pasta was very watery and the meat balls were so disgusting that neither my teenage so nor my husband would eat them, and they will eat anything. One of the few good... More
