About Villa Firenze

The Tudda family immigrated to Calgary in the summer of 1954. They opened a small pizzeria, which instantly became a huge success. The popularity of this little pizzeria led to the opening of Stromboli Inn in 1972.

In 1991 Joe and Teresa along with their four children Pina, Peter, Marianne, and Domenic opened their second restaurant, Villa Firenze. Villa Firenze restaurant has provided a welcoming, elegant, and reliable dining experience over the years. It is renowned for its signature Portobello Mushroom dish, and its fabulous home style Italian cooking. Villa Firenze Restaurant is currently owned and run by Joe’s grandson Tony Nicastro.

About our Partners

AMA Waterways River Cruises

At AmaWaterways, we love what we do - providing our guests with the best travel experiences possible. In fact, "Ama" is derived from the Latin word for "love." It is a concept that permeates every aspect of our river cruises, from the design of our ships to the development of our itineraries to the high levels of service we deliver to our guests. Experience more ways to discover, more ways to indulge and more onboard amenities. With an award-winning fleet in Europe, Vietnam, Cambodia and Africa, critically acclaimed dining and unique tour options, you will have the trip of a lifetime on our cruises.

Silversea Expeditions

An expedition with Silversea luxury cruises is unlike any other form of travel — thrilling, awe-inspiring and humbling all at the same time. It takes you to some of the most remote regions of the planet and shows them to you intimately. It is for the curious traveler who longs to see an orangutan in the wild or what lies behind the next mountain ridge. But it’s not just about wildlife or mountains. It’s about immersing yourself in the culture, landscape and habitat of a region with the help of experts who can illuminate all you see. From the lush rainforests of the equatorial Pacific to the polar extremes at the very edge of the world, our expedition ships sail to all seven continents. You can explore pelagic wonderlands, admire volcanic plateaus gushing with geysers, or enter the realm of the Polar Bear. But no matter where you go, you’ll enjoy a uniquely immersive experience, expanding your global perspective and prompting you to re-evaluate what really matters. And rest assured- no creature comfort will be denied on an expedition cruise with Silversea.
