Situated on one of the busiest streets of Calgary, is Una Pizzeria. This is easily one of my most favourite restaurants and their food is something I frequently crave. If ever in the city, this restaurant is a must. Though they specialize in pizzas, the starters are equally as delicious. But I do admit that I tend to be a creature of habit, especially when it comes to food I love, and tend to order the same thing every time.
My go-to starters are the kale caesar salad and the veal + pork meatballs. I will be the first to admit that I’m not the biggest health nut, but this kale salad is soooo good. The boiled egg, cheese and crispy prosciutto go so well with the kale. And honestly, who doesn’t love veal?! It makes the perfect meatball, and this is the perfect example.
The house white is perfect with my favourite pizza of all time… the 4-maggi. A 4 cheese pizza, truffle oil and honey. Even the thought of this pizza makes me drool. Though I try to try the other pizzas on the menu, I always I get the 4-maggi. Another one I can’t get enough of is ‘The Beltline’, which has double smoked bacon, fennel sausage, smoked mozzarella and maple syrup. And trust me, it’s as good as it sounds.
Getting a table at this quaint pizzeria can sometimes be as long as an hour, but it’s worth the wait. Una gets so busy that sometimes you aren’t able to even order take out! Luckily this year they are opening up a section specifically just for take out orders. In the mean time, check out their drool worthy take out menu.
