Italian
Italy is a country of breathtaking beauty - both the land and the people. It is this beauty that is the inspiration for Bonterra, a lively and spirited Italian Trattoria.

Chef Glen Manzer prepares contemporary Italian fare with the emphasis on simple, fresh ingredients with an exciting twist. Experience the passions of Italy in our casual dining room; on our stunning Tuscan terrace; or in the Wine Room for a more private event.

Our vibrant cuisine perfectly reflects the passions, style, and gusto that is the hallmark the Italian way of life.

PLEASE NOTE: All reservations are for indoor dining only. Our patio is seasonal as well as weather dependent. Calgary's crazy weather makes the availability of this space uncertain and unpredictable. We are hoping to have it open by mid May.

Please enter the restaurant through our parking lot entrance off 10th Ave.

I have called the restaurant as it seems only fair to give them feedback since our experience was so bad. They have not returned my call.

Delicious food, full of flavour and at the same time light. The Caprese was fresh, calamari interestingly reimagined, trout perfectly cooked with crispy skin and the grilled carrots came with a flavour bomb drizzle on them. All finished with a tasty olive oil cake! Our server was knowledgeable and accommodating. Telling everyone and can’t wait to return

Staff was very busy and I had to wait 15 minutes for them to clean and set my reserved table.
Staff was pleasant and food was very good.
I had reserved a table in the patio and as always It’s lovely to sit out there

Had the most excellent experience at Bonterra. Started with bruscetta, then carbonara as the main. Highly recommend the olive oil lemon cake, it was positively divine. I also loved the Pinot Rose, such an interesting blend on a hot summer's day. Will be back!

It was my first time at Bonterra and we wanted a quieter table to celebrate Brazilian's Valentine's Day. So they move us to a cozier table, thankful for this ! I ordered a gnocchi and it was delicious, so was the Carpaccio ! Hope we can get the sold out focaccia bread next time.

The artichoke ravioli and the carpaccio! Need I say more? Food was incredible, service great, if not a tad slow, but that's ok when you're sitting on one of the loveliest patios in the city. I'll dream of my meal for weeks and will have to go back to eat there again. Brought our children and it was great for them too (they're foodies as well). Thank goodness Bonterra is open again!

The restaurant has a beautiful patio. We were just facing the building which wasn't as nice but the other tables were lovely. The food was fantastic, especially the veal meatballs. The whole family enjoyed them! All the people were friendly and inviting, especially our waiter, Curtis. He was friendly and energetic and helpful without going over the top. We will definitely be returning!

Tough start waiting 45 minutes for our reservation, which they obviously have away. They tried to make it right with a round of Prosecco, which definitely helped.
The caprese salad needed salt, pepper and nicer heirloom tomatoes. The veal meatballs were great! The #8 pizza was excellent - highly recommend. My wife’s gnocchi was good. She said the pillows were soft and well made - but the sauce could have been elevated. The patio was awesome - warm and covered with plenty of heaters!

Had a reservation for 7:00 and we didn’t get seated until 7:45. Not sure what happened but it didn’t feel great and no one explained why or no apologies. We were just starting to look online at what other patios had openings immediately as it was a special occasion when they finally seated us. NOTE: 3 people in front of us were walk ins and mentioned that they were glad they came when they did. 4 people arrived about 5 minutes after we did, their reservation was for 6:45 and were 20 minutes late. Was really disappointed to be seated after them and the walk ins. Not sure if we’ll come back, was my favourite go to restaurant. Other than being treated that way at the beginning, once dinner was on its way the food was delicious and service was great. Also note that the patio heating was perfect, my mother was warm enough!
