We went for dinner and ordered the spaghetti/meatballs ($12.99) and the grill chicken and pasta ($16.99). It doesn't matter what main dish or the price of the main dish that you order as all the main dishes comes with fresh bread to munch on, tea or coffee, soup and a small desert, The atmosphere... read more

Service was great. The food was excellent EXCEPT the mussels while served on boiling hot plate was cold. Tonight one ate ravioli , the other ate lasagne and I had honey garlic wings. Two took of the advantage of the free soup and desert with the entree. Overall 8 out 10

A pleasant restaurant in the centre of town. However, they do seem to have some problems with the length of time between ordering your food and actually getting it at peak times. The food when it came was well cooked and very good.

It's a budget food chain but pasta is fresh and choices are good. Wine prices were reasonable and all in all a good place to dine for simple pasta. I would go there again.

Great food great value! We paid about $14+tax+tips each for a soup or salad, a pasta, an ice cream and tea/coffee. You can add a couple of bucks to upgrade your soup/salad too! And the quality is not bad either! Having eaten many dinners double that price this week that had sent us home too full, it was a nice... More

Well cooked pasta with a decent choice of sauces, and enough vegetarian options to make our daughter happy. We enjoyed this place, and would happily recommend it. service was good and the price reasonable.

Visited this restaurant on our second night in Banff. We were looking for something other than a steak house. This fits that bill. The restaurant is located in the downtown area. The atmosphere was good. The food was good, but not fantastic. The price was very reasonable - a hard thing to find in this resort town. My husband enjoyed... More

Me and my family came during May after a long day in the mountains. The service was good and the place was very comfy. The menu, as the name of the restaurant clearly stands, is mostly about pasta but it did not bother us at all, and the price is outstanding... I don't remember the exact price but we got... More
