Una Pizza + Wine

618 17th Avenue Southwest
Calgary, AB T2S 0B4
(403) 453-1183

The lines can get long here, but the wait for the best pizza in Calgary is well-worth it.


4611 Bowness Road Northwest
Calgary, AB T3B 0B2
(403) 288-4372

Known for comfort food with a gourmet twist, like rotisserie chicken, Greek salad and lobster risotto. Ask about their special burger of the month, too.

River Café

25 Prince’s Island Park
Calgary, AB T2P 0R1
(403) 261-7670

Accessible only by foot, River Café has a rustic cabin feel. Ask to be seated by the fire, where you can have a glass of wine and appetizers before dinner. In warmer weather, pick up one of their gourmet picnic baskets and step outside into Prince’s Island Park.

Model Milk

308 17th Avenue Southeast
Calgary, AB T2S 0A3
(403) 265-7343

We love the popular Sunday suppers at this loft-style restaurant, where dishes like beef brisket and corn succotash are served family style at communal tables.


1240 8th Avenue Southeast
Calgary, AB T2G 0M7
(403) 531-2767

A historic 19th-century house is the perfect setting for this restaurant, which home-grows and locally sources most of its produce. Try the tasting menu or the wine pairing to maximize your visit — both are superb.

Rocky’s Burger Bus

Crossroads Farmers Market
1235 - 26 Avenue S.E.
Calgary, AB T2G 1R7
(403) 243-0405

A local institution where burgers and milkshakes are served from an old city transit bus. It’s not open on the weekend, so come for lunch during the week.
