The food was excellent and reasonably priced! Nice atmosphere but the restaurant interior décor was a bit dated, circa the 1970's.

we enjoyed the meal very much - I had veal and my wife had fish - and a really nice swiss appetizer with the raclette cheese. Juan our server gave us some good meal recommendations. The owner dropped by a number of times to chat with us, he is a real old-fashioned restauranteur who makes you feel welcome. The establishment has been in Banff over 30 years and is very popular with the locals.

I spent some time visiting Switzerland when I was posted overseas in Holland on a foreign assignment, and this restaurant brought back some excellent memories of that time.

Next time we will try the fondue. We will definitely be back. As mentioned in other reviews, this restaurant is a few blocks away from the busy part of Banff Avenue, the food is good, and the experience won't empty your wallet.

This wonderful out of the way restaurant is great! The service and atmosphere were amazing and the food is something else right from appetizers to dessert! The portions are big and prices are between 20 and 35 dollars. Great value for the dining treat. Will definitely recommend this place and come here again.

Named after Switzerland's Italian-speking canton of Ticino (where I come from), this restaurant offers a hint on what it would be dining in a Swiss resaturant. You won't actually find many plates listed in the menu in Ticino's traditional grotti and some of them will probaly be cooked in a slight different way, still a lot of them are at least inspired to what you will find in the southern Swiss canton. Offer is completed with some of best known Swiss specialities, like the cheese fondue (hint: use bread not vegetables and have it as your main dish if you want the original experience).
I was personally quite amazed discovering that the owner is in fact from Canton Zurich, located in the german-speaking part of the counry: I guess that the "Veal emincé Zurich style" should be delicious too.
If you cannot visit Ticino soon, this is a good place to go.
Service was excellent!
