Italian Restaurant Rec in Calgary?

Hello all! I'm pretty new to the board, but I was wondering if anyone would have a good reccomendation for Italian food. It's for a family gathering, so ambience is a factor. I was hoping for something mid-priced (no Capo's here sadly...). We were originally going to La Brezza, but they're booked out for the evening.
Many thanks!

  1. Il Chianti on 20 Av NW
    Abruzzo downtown
    Pulcinella in Kensington
    Sandros off Edmonton Trail

      1. For family dining - I would definately reccomend - Buon Giorno Ristorante Italiano
        823 17th Avenue SW.

        1. I personally do not have much good to say about Abruzzo, but I can heartily recommend Da Guido.

          Da Guido!!

            Some girlfriends and I would like to dress up and go out for dinner next weekend. Would we be out of place at Da Guido? Our attire will be closer to "Sunday best/afternoon wedding reception" than "prom."

              You will be fine. Da Guido doesn't really have a dress code per se, but I wore jeans and a sweater once and felt out of place. The decor is chandeliers and ornate furniture.

          2. I would second Buon Giorno's, great ambience and food.
