This was a nice find. Food was very good but the butternut ravioli was not a very big portion. Will certainly be back.

The crew at Bistecca once again offered great food (the Flat-Iron steak is superb) and friendly, informed service.
Mother's Day Brunch
The food was excellent and the chef displayed his culinary French/Italian cooking eloquently in the food served such as the bread, the brisket, and the French desserts.
Relaxing get together with friends...
We met after golf for a relaxed meal. Looking for more than quick bite to eat but not fine dining . Portions were adequate if you ordered the large. The service worked well with our loud mood. We would go back again.
Definitely for special occaissions. A little high priced, but a good wine list and great ambiance. Terrific Mussels!!!
We took our friends out for their 25th Anniversary. We all agreed the service was impeccable, the food was amazing,wine selection was great and the atmosphere was pleasurable. Honestly, we haven't had that nice an experience in a long time. We thank you. We will defiantly be back in the near future.

Bistecca is definitely a favourite. Consistently great food and great service.
The service was outstanding and the food was excellent as always. Love this restaurant.
Great Birthday Dinner
We took our two adult sons to Bistecca for their combined birthday celebration (1 week apart). The food and service were excellent, and the noise level was quite reasonable, allowing easy conversation without having to raise our voices. We have been here several times before and the quality of the experience is always consistently high. We'll be back.
They treated us great. Had kids with us and looked after them well. Gave anniversary couple a free dessert. Excellent place eat.

Well organized and awesome service for my table of 15.
A good value restaurant
Of the Sorrentino's restaurants Bistecca is our favorite. Good value meal, pleasant ambiance. Service has always been good.
Great Garlic Menu!
We were at Bistecca on a sunday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. They had a set 3-course garlic menu for $35. It was delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. The appetizer was Goat Cheese Stuffed small red peppers on Onion Jam with dried sliced garlic pieces, meant to be spread on a slice of bread. Yum! The entrees chosen were Roast Veal & Salmon & both were delicious. Dessert was Crepes Suzettes made at our table with garlic ice cream. Again very good! We enjoy coming here during garlic festival. It usually falls around my husband's birthday.
Bistecca Restaurant. Overpriced and over peppered!
Did not like their "roasted Ceasar salad. Everyone's meal came droned in pepper corns which spoiled the taste of the meals. Very disappointing.
Great food and service for lunch. We'll be back soon to try out dinner.

Went to this restaurant in April during their garlic festival and ordered off of the garlic menu. Wow! Flavours galore, including garlic. Very inventive use of garlic in the different dishes, yet not overpowering. Appetizer, entrée, and dessert were perfect sizes so that you could enjoy all three courses. Delicious wine (although it contained no garlic!). Overall, a very tasty meal. The service was impeccable.

We had a great experience. Glenn was nothing but the best, we'll be returning because of him and the quality of the food. It was delicious.
Edmonton Italian steak house
Pretty dependable restaurant. Recommended the steak to a companion as it had been very good the last time we ate there & had come medium rare (as advertised) - very disappointed when this arrived done to death. Liked the small bites to start. Waitress was very good and not overbearingly and refreshingly she didn't ask 'how our first bite' was. Wine list is good but there should be more bottles in the $30 - 40 range rather than pretty much starting at upwards of $50.

Took forever for our food to arrive - on a slow, Tuesday night. The steak was cold and the octopus in the seafood dish was cold.
Food was great but server was clueless .
Server was not aware of specials for happy hour timing ad offering or food. The meal lasted an hour longer than it should of due the e traordinarily long waits between courses. Have been many times before so this was a surprise to have such poor service.
Way over priced for the Steak Selections.
A Rib-Eye Steak @ $43.00 should be at least 1 inch thick. Mine was cooked well, however the size was not proportionate to the price. I have had 15.99 Steak Sandwiches that had a larger cut of Beef, that tasted just as good.
All items on the menu are wonderful. Good for a romantic date setting or a wonderful meal. I went there for a nice girls dinner. Dessert was amazing! We each had the brownie and it was to die for!

We had the steak and the duck. The duck wasn't bad but the steak was quite chewy. The taste was very good just the quality of the steak we expected would be better. The service was very good and of course the selection of wine is quite impressive.

Not our first time at Bistecca, and as usual, it didn't disappoint! Always warmly welcomed and the staff is always there to take care of you. We had a great of eight and everything was awesome! One our favourites in Edmonton

Our favorite spot! We come here for all our special occasions! This visit we had the Arctic char which was fantastic, and the sirloin special with crab and escargots, also incredibly delicious. We finished with the tiramisu and espresso creme brûlée. Highly recommend!! We of course will be back again soon!!
Night out with the Wife
The ambiance was great, and the food was good. Enjoyed dinner and the evening.

If you like your $45 rib eye steak to just have a little salt on it, then you'll love this place. I'm not sure how the serving plate was hotter than the meat, so be careful you don't burn yourself on it. The atmosphere was modern, nice and enjoyable.
mmmm, mmmm, good...
The steak is truly melt in your mouth! Aged to perfection. If you like your steak, then this is the steak house for you! Highly recommend this restaurant. I have never been disappointed here. My only criticism is that I also like vegetables and the veggie portion was a bit lacking, but all else was great!!
I loved the restaurant! Ambiance was very good!! Menu is wow!! It was succulent!! Carppaccio was wow!! 5 stars
Everything was going smoothly in the beg ...
Everything was going smoothly in the beginning but in the end it didn't end well. When we first walked in we were greeted and Seated right away. Atmosphere was good. You can have a conversation without hearing the neighbours. The service was good but nothing really stood out as being exceptional. We had the 4 courses meal for a Valentines dinner. The waitress brought bread but only gave us 1 piece each instead of a small basket like the other fancy restaurants. She didn't come back and asked if we would like some more. We had shrimp and breaded oyster for appy. The shrimps was good and cooked well but oysters were very salty. The main dish, we picked steak. So I asked how do they cook their steak? She said they only cook medium rare is that okay? So I was surprised on how you can't tell them on how you want your steak done but I do like medium rare anyway so I said sure. But when our food came out. The steak were tough and chewy because they were cooked medium well. My shrimps also a little over cook but my bf said his was the best shrimps he ever had. The desert came out, I asked what is it she wasn't very knowledgeable of the dish. As a complimentary, they gave two shots of raspberries liquor and 2 little pieces of chocolate. So overall I would rate this restaurant 2 stars out of 5 and would not go back considering we paid over $200 and the food was not that great. Just over price.
Nice Valentine service
We went on short notice very well done Valentine Special dinner!
February 14th Dinner
The overall experience was extremely poor during this dining experience. The reservation was booked online. When we arrived at Bistecca for our 6pm reservation, it was discovered that our reservation was lost. It was around 6:10pm before we finally were seated. Our server attended to us fairly quickly, and we placed our meal and drink orders. Our drinks took 5-10 minutes to arrive. We never received complimentary bread. Our appetizers arrived shortly after drinks arrived. The main course did not arrive until after 7:15pm, as our order ticket was lost. The server attended to us very infrequent. Our drinks were not refilled, and not checked up on. Our dessert arrived quickly after our main course plates were removed. We finally left the restaurant shortly after 8:00pm. Overall, the food was well presented and delicious. The service was extremely poor, and there were no consideration for the errors created by Bistecca. The attitude of the Bistecca staff seemed to be pushing us out the door to sit the next customer.
Excellent dining for 2, the only slight downside was there was a table of kids who were running around the table and being very unbehaved. But besides that slight downside the food was excellent, the wine was fantastic, and the serving was stupendous. I would highly recommend to anyone for a nice night out, but expect about $100 per person.
Beef was delightful, lobster was mundane. Meh.
Excellent service, fantastic wine, and a great menu. The steak was great, the pork was inspiring,; however, the lobster was without any bold characteristics. Do give it a try, but expect an expensive night out.
Good food, but pushy servers.
My husband and I went out with another couple to celebrate my birthday. We don't often relax and dine as we all have small children. We wanted to order appetizers first and enjoy a few drinks, but we were informed that we had to order our meals right away to ensure we got them. We were in no hurry, but certainly felt pushed to eat and leave. The server knew the menu well, but his pushy sales tactics were over the top.
Extremely bad Steak
Ordered their most expensive steaks. Mine was perfect, but my wife ordered medium rare, came out medium well. They were nice enough to get another one fast, but second steak came out really rare, at that point didn't want to order another so my wife ate it. They still charged us for the steak which was disappointing, they could have comped it, as they charge around 50-60/steak. We didn't feel great the next day either for a $300+ dinner for two was not the best.
This is our favourite restaurant for any occasion or special treat
