The Calgary Bailliage enjoyed a delightful evening with host Guido Panara at his restaurant, Da Guido. Serenaded throughout by gentle accordion accompaniment, guests enjoyed a bountiful presentation of classic Italian dishes, skillfully prepared by Guido himself and his well-trained brigade, and accompanied by carefully chosen wines from the region. Service was friendly, professional and attentive. Congratulations to Guido and his staff for an excellent event.
