“Service is everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Call ahead for reservations because this is a very busy place but worth the wait. The menu is nothing extraordinary but the food was good. We fed a family of five (three young adult males who eat a lot) for $78. This included bread, salads, pasta and dessert for everyone. So much food some of us took the extras back to the chalet for a late night snack. Above all our server, Raphael, was the best. Polite, friendly and took the time to ensure we had everything we needed. This was the best service we had during our stay in Banff. Great family restaurant.

“Good eat if you are on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
