Always a wonderful experience at Uccellino. Servers are very professional - friendly but not overbearing. Best Italian food in the city. Try the ricotta crustini - ricotta made in house. Beautiful beef carpaccio tonight. Also had paccheri pasta - hubby’s favourite. Main of scallops was excellent. 6 in the serving! And v filling. The flourless chocolate cake - Buddino was excellent. This is my closing restaurant for recruits - Uccellino shows we have outstanding food in Edmonton.

About the restaurant
vivo is where Italian comes alive. We relish the enthusiasm and joy with which the traditional Italian meal is prepared and delivered, and seek to recreate that experience for every guest. Our open kitchen showcases our chefs preparing fresh and local ingredients.

When you join us for dinner, expect it to be a relaxing evening lasting a couple hours over several piatti (courses). Your table comes alive when we present a variety of large offerings on platters or bowls within easy reach of all.

A classic Italian pranzo (dinner) usually beings with a variety of antipasti (hot and cold appetizers), followed by one or two primi (usually a hot pasta, risotto, gnocchi or zuppa). Next your table will share a secondi (entrees) served on a platter combined with your choice of contorni (vegetable side dishes). Italians often complete their meal with un dolce, un caffe, or un digestivo (dessert, espresso, liqueur or grappa).
we only use fresh in house made pastas and sauces.

Vivo never disappoints, always on point thanks to career hospitality people who prepare the meal, serve their patrons professionally, like Al , and have a welcoming management team in place . Do yourself a favour and sample the great menu they work hard to be so consistent with ( especially the fettuccine).

Always an amazing experience here. Food is amazing, but the service, what an exceptional experience. At our table we had the ravioli, mushroom ravioli, and short rib and ravioli, guess we all like ravioli! Everything the exceptional! the Cesar salad was good to start, and the hot bread with seasoned oil, was again, amazing!!! The only problem was that the food was so good we had no room for coffee or dessert as we cleaned our plates!

About the restaurant
Sorrentino's West is an Italian cuisine restaurant. The décor of the restaurant is classy. The dim lit ambience of Sorrentino's West makes it a trendy place to hang out, catch some TV and enjoy delicious Italian food. The family friendly environment at Sorrentino's West gives the place an inviting vibe. The food at Sorrentino's West is scrumptious and some of the regularly ordered items on the menu include Calamari, Penne Arrabbiate, Prosuitto Panini, Butternut Ravioli, Tortellini and Lasagne. The most ordered item on the kid's menu is Spaghetti and Meatballs. Out of these food items, it is the Calamari which steals the spotlight. For desserts, Mango Berry Cheesecake seals the deal. Sorrentino's West has a bar too. The wine selection at the bar is pretty decent. The bar service is fast.

Incredible food as always and we really appreciate that you offer a free dessert for special occasions. It was my husband and my 9th wedding anniversary and the personalized dessert was such a special touch. Thank you! We'll be back for sure!

About the restaurant
A casual Italian(ish) eatery in the heart of Old Strathcona. Food inspired by the traditions and culture of Italy, cooked with modern techniques and ingredients.

Produce is chosen and cooked when it is shining the brightest. Seasonal vegetables are treated to showcase their quality. A selection of handmade pasta made from Alberta flour. Proteins in large format made for sharing, just like at Nona’s table. And tiramisu, who can forget!

About the restaurant
For over 25 years, the Sicilian Pasta Kitchen has provided its guests with the highest level of quality and service. All the dishes are prepared with an emphasis on using the freshest, prime ingredients thus honouring our old-world Italian roots while incorporating a fresh new approach.
​Our dining area is simple yet sophisticated which caters to both the casual and the formal. We often host large parties such as office parties or birthdays (no we don't mind taking a group picture) as well as private functions. Many of our guests however, have been coming for years and we are very grateful for their continued patronage.
We have a charming downtown patio for those who like to enjoy the weather with their meal. We also provide free guest parking at the rear of the restaurant.
Whether you be Edmontonian, Sicilian or somewhere in between, we look forward to serving you. Buon appetito!
