After graduating from the SAIT Culinary Institute, Robert Fedosoff embarked on a five-year journey around the globe, living and working in restaurants in New Zealand, London, and France. Returning to his native Calgary with a diverse culinary arsenal, he accepted the position of executive chef at Il Sogno, where he combines European cooking techniques and Italian traditions to create a menu that's filled with contemporary preparations, such as a duck liver parfait with fig preserves, watercress, and pickled shallots.
Over the last decade, Il Sogno has received a multitude of awards, including the Consumers Choice Best Italian Award in 2010 and the Four Diamond Award by the CAA/AAA in 2009, as cited by a glowing feature in Notable. Beneath 14-foot pressed-tin ceilings, servers transport dishes of braised duck, house-made pasta, and seasonal seafood through what has been lauded as one of Calgary’s most romantic dining rooms. An extensive selection of cocktails and spirits originate from the bar, and a wine list offers well-suited pairings for appetizers, entrees, and white shirts.
