My wife and I raced into the restaurant very close to closing. The staff were EXCEPTIONALLY welcoming and gracious enough to feed us. They did not have to be so accommodating. I cannot overstate how grateful we were.

The food was also incredible. We had the daily special and were floored with how good the meal was. Let's just be honest and say that the food here is always delicious.

If you have the chance to swing by Villa Maria, definitely do yourself a favour and eat here. Just a note, perhaps avoid coming in at closing time. ;)

Remember going to Villa Maria in Calgary and experiencing the best in food and friendly service. Now, having Villa Maria in Carstairs and going there over the past year for amazing meals and experience has been a delight. We had to unfortunately cancel our much looked forward to Christmas party this year, however, Danny is preparing some amazing Italian lunch items and deserts to send over to our office in the next week so we can treat the staff that are still in the office a nice luncheon and we will still be able to support such a great local business!

Thanks Danny and Maria!

I have never been disappointed by the service or food, an absolute go to restaurant. Always great for some light fun and the food cannot be beat! I am always to busy enjoying friends, atmosphere and food when here so no picture available (sorry) BUT I promise you will not be disappointed by this delightful couple in small town Alberta.

Tried Villa Maria for the first time today for lunch and we were definitely pleased with our choice. My husband had their pasta special (seafood) and I had a chicken Caesar salad. Very good quality and large portions. The coffee was Outstanding!! We will definitely be back to try other dishes. The owners are so nice and friendly, exactly what you Like in a local restaurant.

$40 for a 1 highball, a couple of appeys and a pasta meal with store bought pasta! I had some dish with zucchini, sausage and onion - greasy as hell, hardly any sauce or what there was for a sauce was so oily- i guess from the sausage. the pasta wasn't home made or at least it sure didn't look or taste homemade. Didn't even get a piece of garlic toast with the meal...not worth my money for sure.
