I would have previously recommended the Canon 50mm f/1.4 but mine developed focus problems after 4 months of use and is in for service currently. Before that it was great, although down at 1.4 images lose a lot (contrast, sharpness). At 1.8 or higher very nice stuff, much better than the Canon 50mm f/1.8 at 1.8. I've had an enormous amount of trouble with Sigma lenses so I really don't buy them anymore, but I've heard good things about the optics in their 50mm 1.4.
