“Good eat if you are on a budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Food: standard old spaghetti factory so if you want to stick with what you know, then this is your place

Good if you have a family. Prices are reasonable. Entrees include bread, salad or soup, ice-cream and coffee or tea.

If you are looking for fine dining or a place to have a first date then try something local unless of course you want to do it on the cheap:)

“Cheap and chearful:”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The prices here are very competitive against many of the restaurants in Banff , after saying that you have to enjoy pasta !! The meal was acceptable and the service swift. I enjoyed the experience but once during a 10-day holiday was sufficient.

“Decent value.”

Foods OK and good value. The way they make money here is to turn you round as as quickly as possible.

“Not like mama makes it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

OK so this is not home made Italian fare like you get in a small town in Italy, this is definitely a Canadian take on Italian. Having said that the portions are good and tasty and the sour dough bread to start is nice. Service was good and the prices are fair.
