Bistecca Italian Steakhouse & Wine Bar
BISTECCA's menu is inspired by Sorrentino's Restaurant Group Corporate Executive Chef Sonny Sung, and is a combination of Savory Antipasti, Divine Pasta and Succulent Entrées containing only the finest cuts beautifully aged to perfection. BISTECCA proudly serves Sterling Silver Beef which is the highest graded premium beef in Canada.
BISTECCA's 'Wine Bar' has a very inviting, casual elegant and relaxed atmosphere. We offer an 9 oz glass of wine which can be enjoyed for half price during 'HAPPY HOUR' from 4 - 6PM everyday. The 'Wine Bar' menu is a combination of Assagini (Little Tastes), Pizza and our signature appetizers.
We celebrated my son's 16th tonight and everything was great. They were very accommodating and our server was spectacular. We've been many times and we will return soon!
The service was pretty good overall. However we started with one really outgoing server and then ended up with a second one that wasn’t. At the end when I paid and tipped pretty well, he just said ‘thanks’ and walked away. Not have a great night, no chit chat. I had pretty high expectations for service and food for this place based on friends feedback of her experience. I had to send my steak back as it was overcooked and they did provide free dessert. My new steak was delicious but the tiramisu was lack lustre. I expected the restaurant to be a tad more upscale-furniture took away from that. I’ll give it a whirl again as there’s a few other things on the menu that interested me.
The food was AMAZING, we just came back from Italy, were there for a month and all food we had that night was as good or even better. Service from Kevin was perfect. Just want to go back next weekend. Best restaurant I went in a long long time.
We had a great time!!!! Will certainly be back for the good steak and fine wine
We have been here before and the service and food was amazing. The location is great and the ambience is perfect for a couple or a group.
However, last night, a Friday night, the service was adequate but the food was terrible. The vegetables were mush and covered with a Hollandaise - type sauce that made it taste like baby food and have a horrible sweat flavour.
We went there for a good/great steak. We each had a different cut of steak and they were all awful. my husband had the bison and it was ok in the middle but dry and tough on the sides. My daughter's steak was prepared well but absolutely drowned in BBQ sauce that ruined it.
I had the tenderloin. Now, I am not sure how you could mess up a tenderloin but it was terrible. The food on my plate made me so excited as there were fall vegetables and my steak was a tenderloin, I was so excited. Each bite was worse than the next. Mushy, salty and downright awful - so incredibly disappointing.
I do not have a problem paying a premium dollar for an excellent meal - this meal was just absolutely disappointing. We will give the restaurant one more try to see if they were just off their game that night but it is going to be a while until I return. Still looking for the best steak in Edmonton since Rick's Grill closed.
The best halibut I have ever tasted. Thanks Chef Sung. Awesome as always.
The food was very good. Service could have been more attentive. Our dinner took 45 minutes to come out, and it was only noticed after I said something. They then comped is a dessert so that was nice! Other than that was a great experience, the restaurant is beautiful and feels intimate. The little bites appy was great, the sauce on the meatballs was AMAZING. We will for sure be back to try other menu items
Best pasta. Just like Italy!
Relaxing environment, excellent service and food
To start, our reservation was messed up. I initially reserved for 6 then a few days before changed it for 8. Although I received confirmation it had been changed to 8. The restaurant was scrambling. We got stuck at some table way in the back. This area was like an overflow. You couldn't see the rest of the patrons.
Our server explained that the Chef/Owner was cooking this evening and made a huge deal of saying
that is the best time to enjoy a steak. He was over the moon in his description.
We had 8 people dining. No one was happy with their meal. 4 of us had the steak. One wasn't cooked properly, and they were almost dry. Definately not melt in your mouth. The meals are not worth the hefty price tags. Giving us a dish with powdery parmesan in it? No class. Who's to say it isn't Kraft. Even Olive Garden beats you here. The vegetables that were served with the steak were not cooked well. The number of brussell sprouts on each plate was excessive (they were 3/4 of the vegetables served on each plate). When you consider a large portion of people hate brussell sprouts. It is definitely a bad idea to serve an over abundance of them. The potatoes looked boiled, plain and unappetizing. The noise level was awfully loud. We will not be returning.
Great food, great service! The food was very tasty and reasonably price. The ambiance is great too!
Was a very beautiful and romantic atmosphere, however, our waiter came by almost too often to take our order. It made it seem like they wanted us gone. The food and drink were delicious but we weren't given a ton of time to look over the menu.
Absolutely amazing. The best food in Edmonton. Chef Song is an artist with flavours and food.
The service was excellent, as was the ambiance and the appetizer. The mushroom festival is on, and the mushroom soup is always excellent at Sorrentino's. However, the cannelloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach was a disappointment. Very little sign of spinach, and the mushroom sauce actually tasted more like cheddar cheese sauce with a very few sauteed mushrooms sprinkled on top. No discernible mushroom flavour at all, and the cheddar drowned out the subtlety of the ricotta and spinach. Too bad!! It just tasted like mediocre mac n'cheese.
What a shame, our server was unfriendly , inattentive and in the end we were given a meal that wasn’t ordered and not told what it was. Cannelloni is cannelloni I suppose so they didn’t feel it required a description. Ordered mashed potatoes and received roasted. Told it was substituted for the secondary potato as the primary was used up. Then asked if I wanted mashed. I figured after waiting an hour for our main course they could have made the mashed.
We did receive free desert and were offered a discount which was appreciated however the experience was ruined.
Servers were engaging and knew their stuff. Very attentive
The evening was most enjoyable. The lamb entree was very tasty and tender. The ambiance was quiet at first but got more noisy as more customers came in.
After the meal, we thought the waitress took a long time to bring the check or to ask if we wanted anything else.
Wonderful as always. The mushroom festival menu is exceptional.
Great ambiance, excellent service and the food was delicious. Date night! Indulged with appetizers, main course and desert. All were fabulous also great wine recommendations. Would recommend this place.
Love the Wednesday night "bring your own wine", made the group gathering easier and less expensive. The folks at Bistecca are friendly and welcoming, made us comfortable right away. The service was excellent, very attentive. Our meals were great, everyone loved their dinner. Thanks for a great evening!
Chef Sung's talent is amazing. The best cheddar ravioli with Morel and porcini mushrooms I've ever had. Absolutely beautiful.
Eat here once a month with wife, food is exceptional. Any thing on menu will do it. Service is awesome always, love this place keep doing what you’re doing Bistecca.
Very good meal
It was perfect for a visit with a good friend that was in need of some good wine, good food and a few tears and laughs.
Chef Sonny Sung has a wonderful ability to create the most succulent dishes ever. Every night is like a beautiful gastronomical adventure of wonderful food. The staff treat you like family. It's like coming home for the best meal ever. Beautiful food, wonderful staff and our most favourite restaurant.
Absolutely wonderful. Sonny Sung is the best chef in Edmonton. Always a delight to dine at Bistecca.
Great food, great service, great attention to detail.
A last minute decision to meet friends for dinner led us to Bistecca as that was almost the only reservation we could get at the time we chose. Big mistake. The food was disappointing and the food was overpriced for what we got. The service was pretty good but hard to make up for the food quality. Expensive lesson learned.
Food was good, ate on the patio on one of the few excellent nights we have had this year but the server made the night. Recommended.
It is a mystery why this place is not packed with diners..the food is superb with constantly changing menu items..service friendly and crisp...every one at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
Incredible service! Many restaurants could learn from Bistecca. From beginning to end, we were treated respectfully and not taken for granted as a paying customer. Very friendly, professional, attentive service.
The best wild boar belly I have ever tasted. Amazing food and wonderful staff. Just like family. Proprio come una famiglia.
We had a wonderful dinner and great service. Thank you Leslie. We will be back again.
Everything was absolutely phenomenal. Frank was our server and he was awesome. We all ordered different things and were all extremely impressed, the flavours were amazing. We will be returning!
Very creative cuisine, and a great dining room. Good wine list to pair with the meal.
86 birthday celebration
Chef Sonny Sung never ceases to amaze me with his creative meals and presentation. Especially the French butter.
I recommended Bistecca to my six friends for our bi monthly get together. The ladies raved about the restaurant (and me for picking this venue). Thank you again, for making our nite out an amazing experience.
Just started to eat our appetizers and our mains came. Ridiculous. How does that happen? 2 out of 5 were not thrilled with their pasta dishes. Not a big fan of the waitress constantly refilling our wine glasses. I know its happens everywhere. Just want you to buy another bottle.
Anniversary dinner with close friends. Awesome wine, meals and service!!!
