“Good Pizza in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here our first night in Banff. The restaurant is well decorated and provides a pleasant atmosphere. We were seated quickly and our waiter was excellent. We had pizzas, cheese and meat lovers. They were thin crust and were good, nothing spectacular. There were many other Italian dishes that looked good as well. Like most Banff restaurants, a good solid place to eat

“Good food, good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food was good. The service was good. There's nothing bad to say about it. However it isn't anything special. Fairly typical for an Italian place.

“Great food, outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

After a washout day weatherwise we walked in and asked if there were any spare tables and were politely told if we waited 15 minutes a table would be ready. There was a large bar area but this too was packed. After about 5 mins a lady told us there was space at the bar but we simply chose to wait in the front area as we hoped to dry off a bit before entering the main reataurant. Definitely no longer than 15 mins elapsed before we were shown to a great table in the downstairs area of the rstaurant, immediately given water and lovely foccacia bread with olive oil and balsamic to dip rapidly followed. We both ordered the paparedelle- steak, mushrooms, pasta in a mustard cream sauce. This arrived in minutes and was cooked to perfection. We ordered a half bottle of house white which the waitress informed us was from a small vineyard in Italy and it was delicious.
The restaurant was packed once a huge party arrived for upstairs but the service and quality of food were amazing. watching the process from our table was like watching a well choreographed dance routine; table clearing, cleaning and resetting was very smooth and meals just kept appearing all looking appetising and nothing looked rushed. I would strongly recommend you try this place. From the front it looks small with lovely flowers outside but is large inside and a warm welcome awaits.

“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Went here on our first night in Banff and although the service was good, we're not impressed with the food. Hubby ordered veal parmesan thats was filled with breading and I had canneloni that was a bit dry. However, the very attentive service compensated for the mediocre food.

“Your typical Italian restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had dinner here on a Sunday night. The service was very good, friendly and attentive. The food was good. My daughter ordered the margherita pizza and that was a solid choice. My husband ordered the risotto special (braised lamb) and that was good. I ordered the seafood linguine and the noodles were a bit dry (needed more sauce). My son had the spaghetti carbonara and he thought it was okay. So no real complaints but also nothing outstanding. With tax, our bill was $92.40, including a bottle of sparkling water.
