First of all, this place deserves a look because the food is pretty good. As many other reviewers have pointed out, though, we waited a VERY long time for a table. 35-40 minutes in our case; on a Monday night?! During that time, several other couples gave up and left. We were a family of five (2 adults with 3... More

Had lunch for a family of five with two young children and a teenage boy and everyone loved it and no one left hungry. The Panzerotti was the best I can remember having.

Three members of our party shared a pizza and I had a salad. Very good portion sizes and could tell everything was freshly prepared.

Like many places in Canmore, we learned it's best to book a reservation in advance. For Santa Lucia there is an option to book via their site, but upon arrival learned that sometimes that method can be "hit or miss" which I found surprising. Luckily we got a table, but our waitress was the real issue. It took her 15... More

Ate here as a group of two couples while vacationing on a mini-moon to the mountains. We strolled past the sidewalk patio and couldn't resist the aroma wafting out from inside. Wine list is good, one of the only places I've seen a moscato listed. Large caeser salad could have been a touch larger, but was wonderfully dressed with a... More

This restaurant was a bad experience from a food and service perspectives. The pasta were overcooked and the portion was small. The service was really bad. We were a small group and they charged us a 20% service charge. When the service, I don't mind. When you have a bad service and you must pay a 20% service charge, it's... More

Still our favorite local restaurant for Italian, fresh pasta and wonderful sauces. GF option on Pasta only, not great for dairy free. Wonderful desserts for later evenings. Small outdoor deck on Main street for summer evenings. All pastas served w/ a piece of garlic toast - may have to ask your server, they seem to forget the menu says this!

While traveling from Banff to Calgary, and then back to North Carolina, my wife and I stopped for a late lunch in Canmore and by chance, landed in Santa Lucia at around 2PM. After an immediate greeting from our waitress, we advised her that we were on a tight schedule and placed our order. 16 minutes later, we had been... More
