Good food but expensive

Our waitress Maiko provided very good service. The food was well prepared and tasted good, but it was not worth the amount of money they charged for it.

The environment is warm and comfortable. The food itself was very good. We opted for the fondue as an appetizer which was a large portion for 2 people. I had the schnitzel which was a perfect combination of crispy and savoury breaded veal. The portion sizes were perfect. Overall food = 9/10. Service was excellent. I had accidentally left a... More

After being there several times recently, I'm convinced Ticinos is the best restaurant in Banff. We've covered most of the menu and haven't been disappointed ever. The service has been excellent, the room is cosy and the food consistently great. The specials are reasonably priced. Break the chains of chain restaurants, try this family run treat.

I've been living in Banff for several years now, and this was my first time to dine at Ticino, despite having heard great things about the restaurant. I was not let down! From beginning to end my friends and I were treated to amazing food, great wine and absolutely wonderful service, from the hostess, to the server, to the restaurant... More

My family and I decided to go for dinner at Ticino Swiss-Italian restaurant in Banff. We were welcomed by a wonderful hostess, Angela who is the owners daughter and the manager. She was really nice and chatted with us about our trip in Alberta. Our server was great, took time to tell us about the wine choices and about the... More

After a long day of skiing in the cold, we really wanted to have a warm and delicious meal. As we walked in Ticino restaurant, we could just feel that this restaurant is family run. The service was really good, and food tasted fresh. The owner and manager came around to talk to us about our stay in Banff. It... More

I've been eating at Ticino for the past 3 years. The service and food have always been outstanding! Whether it is after a long day of skiing in the mountains or just a couples night out, Ticino is the place to go. If you're looking for authentic fusion between the Rockies and the Alpes, this place will truly amaze you.... More

Having visited Banff on more than one occasion, Ticino Restaurant has always been a staple. Regardless of the occasion, the atmosphere, menu and service consistently deliver. I have literally been dining at Ticino's for years and what brings me back is not only the personable, genuine and knowledgable staff, it is the consistency of the kitchen to produce traditional favourites...

This is a long running family business that perhaps has past its prime. The starter was very good Haida Gwaii chanterelle mushrooms, sauteed with fresh herbs in a veal jus and a touch of cream served on crostini toast but then waited a very long time for the entree. Partner ordered the veal emincé Zurich style (wild mushroom sauce). Veal... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant on January 21, 2015. We had been thinking about a place to celebrate the completion of five long days of skiing in the area, and thought this place might be a local favorite. We had been to the Grizzly House a few evenings before, and absolutely loved the cheese fondue, and figured that... More
