The food was very good food but, very expensive. The entree special was $49.00. Even simple pasta dishes were close to $40.00.

the most disgusting meal we ever had in Banff. Disgusting. Terrible service and freezing cold. They actually hand out blankets. What a pathetic excuse for a restaurant in the Banff Springs Hotel. Never again.

It was very cold outside and the old building got a little cold inside.
Coats and jackets were required. Thank goodness it is not that cold very often.

Very disappointed with this restaurant. Looked like I was in my granny’s conservatory and it was freezing cold. People were sitting with their coats on and going back to the room to get jumpers. The waiter was nice enough but the food was just ok not amazing. I definitely wouldn’t return.

Overall everything was very good other than the pasta. The bread with garlic was excellent. The service was great. We ordered two pasta dishes and we expected much better. The pasta wasn't terrible but sorry, I wouldn't go back again.

Castello's has been a very good Italian restaurant for many years. Before this trip we visited in 2015. Improvements have made since our last visit and everyone can be assured of a great meal in a 1st class resort restaurant.

It was affordably priced for the Banff Springs hotel. I ordered the ricotta lasagna. It was very good at first, and then I got used to it because there wasn't much variety on my plate . The side was some green leafy vegetable that was bitter. My aunt got the same dish and she liked it. My aunt liked the greens better when she added the balsamic vinaigrette on it. She thought it was plain without this. I tasted the squid appetizer. It was good, but tasted salty, so I probably couldn't endure a whole plate of it although a junk food fan I came with could . It is a sharing size.

Our dinner at Castello was amazing. I told our server that my meal of Pasta with clams was as good if not better than in Italy and I have been trying to duplicate my Italy meals! Our server told the chef who kindly gave me written directions for the dish! That's what I call above and beyond!!!
