“high class italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

situated in the fairmont banff springs, this classy italian is more continental than classic italian. quality of food and presentation are top notch and service is first class. try the trio of chocolate for dessert.

“Food not up to the location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This was poor for a restaurant in the Fairmont. prices are high, as expected, but food and wine were both disappointing.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Server was a good advisor. The signature dish was indeed excellent.
The music however did not really match the decor.
So excellent food, great service, I recommend this place.

“Our last night in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We ate here while staying in the hotel. When we tried to make a reservation, the maitre d' worked extra hard to fit us in to a smallish restaurant. I was a bit reluctant to eat at an Italian restaurant in the Canadian Rockies (how authentic could it be?) and no one was more pleased than I was! The food and service were excellent, albeit pricey. If you're staying at the Fairmount, though, the price isn't what you're looking at!

“A fine upscale Italian restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is one of the upscale restaurants at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The service was excellent and the food was also. The menu had a wide variety of selections and the wine list is extensive.
