Rise Bakery & Café - Calgary

I bought a multi grain loaf and it had cumin it.

Gave the bread an undesirable flavor

I did send the bakery an email and they responded first that it had no cumin in it

then I got another note a couple of hours later saying it did have cumin in it.

They did do the right thing and asked that I drop by and they would give me another

loaf that I could try no charge.

It is out of the way for me to drop by so I will pass but I was pleased with the offer and

shows good customer service.

Rise Bakery & Café - Calgary

I stopped in for a look and purchased some multi grain bread.

I must say it was the worst multi grain bread I have ever eaten.

Won't be going back there again.

He now expects it will be late July before he gets his establishment open!

Sorry for the bad news bear but at least we can keep up with the news.

Bad News!!!!

Manuel has run into some snags with his new oven and will not make the 27 May opening!

He is trying for late June now.....

The oven is European and that makes it hard to get quick action when your stalled

with needed information to get the inspections passed

I will post more as info is received.

Sorry for the bad news.

I have talked to Manuel just this week and he said he is trying to have the renovations completed by mid May and opening
shortly after that.

He said he has had some construction problems but most of the problems have been worked out now.

I was there yesterday and the painters were priming the walls
and the floor tiles are being prep'd for installation this week

GO Manuel Go!

Yahoo!! Il Centro The Best Italian Pizzas In Calgary & for that matter Western Canada

The hours at Il Centro are 10:00 AM to 6:00PM Monday to Thrusday.

Friday its 10:00 AM To 10:00PM and Saturday its 12:00 Noon to 10:00 PM.

I agree if your in a hurray and you go to Il Centro you could be in trouble. He makes everything fresh there so you do have to wait. It is more like the restaurants in Italy. They do nothing in a hurray but you make the experience fun with food, talk and laughter. We look forward to not be rushed and thats one of the reasons we like it there.

On Friday and Saturday nights you can call in advance and he will prepare you just about anything Italian that you would like. His customers love that.

I had peppercorn steak and pasta there last night (which I had to request when I made the reservation 2 days ago) and it was probably the best steak I have had in Calgary for a long time.

He must be doing something right because on Fridays and Saturdays its impossible to get in without a reservation.

A reservation is a must now. I liked it better when he wasn't so busy but then thats whats its all about.

John Gilchrist (a local food critic) has been there 3 weeks in a row. He sat across from us last night and we had a great conversation about Fedele's.

We are going back tonight for his specialty Gnocchi which is my favorite pasta.

Ciao

Il Centro
6036-3st SW
403-258-2294

The Chef and owner is Fedele he is a master pizza maker to say the least. We had a large Stagioni...it was like being back in Italy again. What a spectacular thin crust pizza, full of flavor, fresh ingredients and sauce that only he can make because he makes it from his heart. The other items on the menu looked awesome and they have my favorite Homemade Gnocchi which I will try on my next visit.

We can hardly wait to go back.

If your in Calgary give this place a try, it will instantly be a favorite.

Oh ya....if you catch him on a good day he sings to...lol
