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

We arrived in Canmore and walked around and saw several places to eat. We wound up at this quaint little resturant. We had to wait almost an hour for our food, but it was well worth the wait. The owner was supervising everything and the quaint little place was packed. Delicious!!!

Came for supper - made reservations but our table was given away. We sat outside and when it started drizzling; my husband told a server (and she told him she'd clear the dirty table) to tell our server that we moved inside. No one came to clean the table for over 8 minutes and our server brought our meals outside... More

Food here last evening was really nice. We put our name down for a table as we did not have a reservation and came back half an hour later. Service was slow but the waitresses were all very polite and helpful, even calling a cab for us More waiting staff would be good, if only at the weekend so provide... More

Firstly let me say that when our food arrived, it was well cooked, and freshly cooked. Other tables were obviously being served pre cooked and reheated stuff. My pizza was very well done. But, but, but. There appears to be no effective front of house management. We arrived, with a reservation, and there was no table for us. We queued... More

We were looking for a pre-marathon day pasta dinner. I had made a 7:30 reservation for 6 people and when we arrived the restaurant was fully booked. It took them about 20 minutes to get our table ready - we had to wait for several parties to leave. That was a bit annoying but the food made up for it.... More

We enjoyed Santa Lucia on the last night of our week-long trip to Canmore/Banff. What a treat! They offer a few house-made pastas, but the rest are supplied by Canmore Pasta (I'm probably not remembering the name correctly, but point is that they are still local!). My partner got the surf & turf and was incredibly pleased - that rose... More

Love this restaurant. I got the lasagna, and it was definitely one of the best I've ever had. Great dinner with family and convenient location. Thanks!
