What is Italiano Please! and how do we work?

Although we are still a takeout/delivery service operating online, we are very pleased to now be able to serve our clients directly as we have set up our brick and mortar location in the &Foodtruck Court at The Ampersand building in downtown Calgary at 112 4 Ave SW!

We offer authentic Roman food that can now be ordered every day on this website (during our lunchtime opening hours) through the "order online" tabs above - select if you'd like delivery or to pick up. With enough notice we can also do curbside pickup.

As well we continue to create meal boxes to be ordered by Wednesdays for deliveries on Friday.  We are happy to work with you on any special order you may have which can be made through the phone or by email and, for now, we ask to be given a few days notice on all orders please.

Check our Gallery to see what some of our dishes look like!

You can also find us at these Farmer's and Holiday Markets:

Dalhousie Farmer's Market on Tuesday 14 December;

Hillhurst Sunnyside Farmer's Market on Saturday 11 December & Saturday 18 December;

High River Winter Market on Friday 3 December & Saturday 4 December;

Triwood Holiday Market on Sunday 5 December.

We are so very excited to share the news that we have opened a brick & mortar location at The Ampersand building at 112 4th Ave SW!
