I have been to Bistecca for so many special occasions and often just for the French Onion Soup (full of garlic). Always great food and excellent service. Wonderful. It's like being home but like your family has missed you and are so happy to see you.

Always fine, never a issue with service or wine selections in the 3 yr's of dining at Bistecca.
With my wife, enjoys several different choice's of wine or tasty Italian creations. Its always fine dining experiences that i enjoy. This is one of better in Edmonton.

Lovely decor, on the expensive side, my meal wasn't prepared as was identified on menu. Their resolution was to pack a replacement chicken breast to take home. Of course, this was thrown away. It would have been so easy for them to comp an inexpensive side and have us leave quite happy.
Would think twice before returning....

My wife and I were very impressed with the excellent service and very delicious food. The New York steak was one of the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Beef Ribs Ravioli which was very tasty and original. We thought that the entire New Years Eve dinner was reasonably priced for the splendid food, service and ambiance. The decor of the restaurant was very appropriate.
When we held our daughter's birthday celebration at Bistecca Steakhouse in Edmonton on an eaarlier occasion, the food and service were also exceptionally good. We will certainly recommend Bistecca to our friends and relatives.

We came to Bistecca for a New Years Eve dinner.
Right from the moment we walked in and handed our coats to the hostess, we felt welcome and comfortable.
Our server Melanie (maybe Melody?) was gracious and efficient with the exact amount of attention given to us.
Our meals, from start to finish were perfection - couldn't have found anything to improve.
There was a special menu for the evening with plenty to choose from, satisfying any desire or taste.
The ambiance was soft lighting, quiet enough for conversation yet enough background noise to feel very private.
It was a perfect date out, on a special evening.
This was our first visit - but we'll be back for certain!

Went as a company Christmas function. First time experience at this restaurant. Loved the atmosphere and dining room. Went in early to seat at the lounge and have a drink and tapas until dinner but was disappointed with service in the lounge. Perhaps it was because only two of us had alcoholic beverages (3 people in our group do not drink) and we were a quiet group but everyone wanted to be part of the experience. After quite some time, we flagged down our waiter and said we would like to order tapas. He asked that we go to the dining lounge. We stated we had a reservation for later so he said he would get us in early and ushered us to the dining room.

Service, price and ambiance suggested a 'special experience'. However food was exceedingly mediocre. We were told that 'Sonny' the head chef for the Sorrintino's chain was cooking so we should have steak. They were dry and chewy. The special risotto was bland and overcooked. Wine was very marked up, even by Edmonton standards. Over all a mediocre meal at premium prices.

Our table was a circular table in the lounge, not great for 4 people and our main course dishes. This was our second time dining at Bistecca, the first was absolutely amazing. This time our steaks were just ok, the table was right by the bar. Wasn't the same experience as the first time.

Bistecca is and has been one of our favorite restaurants in Edmonton. Great service, awsome food and wine list. We love the atmosphere and feel of the restaurant. Great for a special night out or anytime you're looking for a good meal.

We enjoyed our dinner/evening at Bistecca very much. Our server was patient and helpful. One member of our party ordered something not on the menu and she was very obliging in trying to accommodate him. my lemon veal was tender and delicious. My husband's bison ravioli was also excellent. All dishes were presented beautifully also. We had the cheese plate for dessert and enjoyed the variety of cheeses presented.
If I had one suggestion for Bistecca it would be that they reupholster their booths. It doesn't make a good impression when the first thing you see at your table is a booth that is cracked and worn.
All in all a very positive experience. We shall return!

Date night with a new lady friend, was our second date and was totally impressed with the restaurant. Our booking was there as requested, we had a nice cozy romantic booth, our sever was attentive, but not pushy. Wine list was good, and I ordered a wonderful bottle of wine from Quails Gate, which just happens to be my favourite winery!! Fortunately my date enjoyed my choice. The food was fantastic. The young lady and I were both very happy with our choices. I would certainly recommend anyone looking for a great date experience to visit Bistecca.

I have been to Bistecca many times before but I must say this was the strangest visit I have had to date. I made a reservation at Open Table for 3. Two of us arrived first and we were taken to a table for 2, I pointed out that there was 3 of us in my reservation so we would need a bigger table. The host then took us to an table and we asked if we could have a booth because we had a lot of catching up to do. He said that the booths were reserved but we could sit in the lounge. This was at 5 oclock and we were the only patrons in the restaurant so that seemed a bit odd as I had reserved a week in advance and nowhere did it ask me if I wanted a booth. Anyhow they then decided that they could move us to a booth so by then our third party had arrived and they seated us poured our water etc and then came and said that they would need our booth by 7 and did we think we would be finished by then. We said probably not since we hadn't seen each other in a long time and had a lot of catching up to do. So they moved us again to a booth on the other side that apparently wasn't reserved. Oddly we were there till about 9:30 and I don't think that booth that we were moved from ever had two seatings and there was quite a few open tables that night so not sure why so much confusion but it made us feel like second class citizens, like someone important needed those booths and it wasn't us! Very odd.
I had the Bison Ribeye as I have had everytime I had been there and although it was tasty and cooked properly it was very tough and grissely in spots and I could barely cut through it with my steak knife. So pretty disappointing for a $49 piece of meat with a few brussel sprouts and brocollini as I asked for no starch just extra veg and sauce.
Our waiter was good and he split our bill in three which was great as we were all paying by credit card but it was very odd or maybe presumptious that when he handed all three of us the machine it was already preset at the 20% tip option.

We've lost some great fine dining experiences in Edmonton but then I found Bistecca. What a wonderful ambience. Very quiet between 5:30pm and 7:00pm but even after 7:00pm it wasn't overly noisy. Excellent service, couldn't have asked for friendlier staff. Great menu and plated beautifully. Everything I could have asked for in a fine dining experience. Taste buds were amused with the bruschetta and quinoa salad. One had veal and one had tenderloin steak. It was a lot but we licked the platters clean. I had the rib eye and grilled to perfection. Topped everything off with tiramisu and creme brule. Savored every mouthful. I'm already booking my return.

The restaurant was beautiful and romantically designed. The food was absolutely delicious and all the servers were extremely attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for amazing Italian dishes and a romantic atmosphere.

A couple of years ago I stopped going to Bistecca due to the rudeness of the general manager. Thankfully that GM was let go and they are now under a fantastic GM named Stephane. He was very friendly, professional and attentive. We had fabulous service from our two servers - who unfortunately I can't remember their names. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening and it was reflected in the tip. We even had the pleasure of witnessing a young man down on one knee proposing to his girlfriend.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and anyone looking for a nice evening out!
