Meet the owner

Having gotten his start in the restaurant industry in the 1980s at the age of 14, Violino’s general manager Adrian Solomon has seen it all, but his passion for food has always driven him forward.

Originally from Romania, he earned his culinary school degree before he was 18 and went off to study hotel management in university for five years. Adrian travelled through Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and other places around the world as the assistant maître d’ for an Italian restaurant on a cruise ship, and finally came to Edmonton in 2009.

“Restaurants have been my lifelong passion and, to stick with my tradition, I was looking for an Italian place,” says Adrian. “Violino had recently been bought by a local family. The previous owner sold the restaurant because it was too high end; we renovated it completely to become more accessible to Edmontonians.”

Now, Edmonton has the benefit of Adrian’s professional training and polished skillset. “At Violino,” he says, “I take care of all the needs of the restaurant: reservations, accounting, advertising, paperwork.”

My fiancee, sister and myself went to Violino’s for dinner to try the menu as we were interested in booking our wedding reception there. However, we were extremely disappointed with the service. Our waitress whose name we cannot remember (she had an Italian accent) offered us sparkling or still water when we first sat down. We asked for still water assuming it was tap - which is typical at most restaurants. She never mentioned that still water was an extra charge nor did she offer us tap water.

Violino is located in a converted mansion so you feel like you’re eating your wood fired pizza and drinking Chianti while hosted by a gracious Tuscan family. The fireplace is just the parmesan on the pasta, adding to the comfortable vibes.

Edmonton ice cream shops that will delight

Edmonton ice cream shops that will delight

This old-school Italian restaurant whips up its own gelatos and sorbets in-house. The flavours change regularly, but the fruit-based ice creams are always a sure bet — real strawberries, raspberries or mangos always taste so amazing when blended into ice cream.
