“Great food that took forever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

We enjoyed the food but it look so long. People who came well after us were served before us. I was told we are group of 6 and groups smaller do get served faster even since we came first!?
They need more help and need to understand service is just as important as quality..

“A Great "Family" Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

Ticino's is owned & operated by a local family and has been in business for over 30 years! We had the pleasure of having one of their sons and one of their daughters wait on us. My wife and I had the tomato cucumber salad with fresh mozzarella, very fresh & flavorful. Then I had the fresh snails in buttery sauce as an appetizer. My wife had the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and I had the garlic prawns with a basil/chili pasta, both were great as by the evidence of our empty plates at the end of the meal. The pace of service was excellent, not too fast, as most resort restaurants tend to be, turning over tables too quickly. A local's favorite and now one of ours!

“Memories of Switzerland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Got a great coupon from Travelzoo for a meal that included an appetizer, entrée, glass of wine and shared desert. A great meal. Started with a cheese fondue that brought back memories of Switzerland. Follow by chicken breast breaded in hazelnuts and a weiner schnitzel that my husband had. Delicious . The vegtables were varied and fresh and the swiss potatoes just as I remembered. The desert, tiramisu was ok and the house wine average. The ambiance was great and the service was good. A great place for a meal in Banff.

“Great food, good ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Had a wonderful dinner at this Swiss restaurant. We had a coupon from Travelzoo that included appetizer, entree, class of wine and a shared desert. The cheese fondue appetizer was delicious and better than what I remember experiencing in Switzerland. We had to stop so that we would enjoy the main course. I had breaded chicken, breaded in hazelnuts and my husband had the wiener schnitzel. Both were full of flavour and the swiss potatoes were excellent. Really enjoyed the variety of fresh vegetables. Would highly recommend this restaurant when in Banff,
