Involtini Ristorante inspires the culinary-minded of Calgary with its menu of classic Italian favourites. A large order of calamari ($13) or a bowl of the crab-and-prawn bisque ($8) allows you to get the submerged sustenance you missed out on during your years spent as an oasis lifeguard in the Sahara. Main courses run the gastronomic gamut from pastas and risottos to pizzas and chicken dishes. Weave a tapestry of meatballs and meat sauce with a large order of linguine bolognese ($17) as your dining date digestively dissects a 10-inch chicken-mushroom-alfredo thin-crust pizza ($15). For namesake nourishment, Involtini Ristorante also serves four variations of involtini, a dish with a variety of ingredients stuffed into flattened meat or fish and then sautéed and topped with rich sauce ($23 each). Involtini incarnations come in chicken, beef tenderloin, veal, or salmon. Bid farewell to the boot-shaped bounty of bites with tiramisu ($8) or an espresso ($3.50), or simply save stomach storage space for a glass of wine (starting at $7 per glass).
The dining room at Involtini exudes the rustic glow and warmth of a mountain man's cardigan sweater, ensuring that patrons can enjoy Italian-inspired eats in a comfortable and cozy setting. On Monday nights, the restaurant invites its guests to bring their own wine, with no corkage fee applying. Bottle up your bathtub merlot for workweek-starting wonderment, or allow the skilled staff of Involtini Ristorante to pair your pabulum with a luscious label. Reservations are strongly recommended.
- The prawns were extremely fresh and succulent and the sauce was creamy but not overwhelming. – Bonnie Huang, Scrumptiously Fit Food
- Very nice neighborhood restaurant with personable owners and staff. Much nicer experience than a chain restaurant and the food is way better. – OpenTable.com reviewer who dined on 20/01/2011
