What is Italiano Please! and how do we work?

We are primarily a takeout/delivery service operating for mid-day meal service in the &Foodtruck Court at The Ampersand building in downtown Calgary at 112 4 Ave SW.

We offer authentic Roman food that can be enjoyed every day of the week either from our shop during our lunchtime opening hours or through the "order online" tab above - select if you'd like delivery or to pick up at our counter or curbside.

Note that our menu changes daily - check it out in the green space below or call us for details on 403 702 2542.

With 48 hours notice we can also prepare your choice from our larger menu (another tab above) - again, either for delivery or pick up. 

Make these orders through the phone or by email 

Check our "Rome in your Home" page to see our proposals for bringing our authentic Roman cuisine alive within the comfort of your home!
