A perfect spot for a date night! Only 45 min from Central Calgary and it takes you to a multi room quaint home style restaurant with cozy decor. The service is quick and the meals come out piping hot and delishly gourmet! The Pinot Grigio was the best I had tasted in a long time too! Portions are so large I felt I was taking home half of my linguini del mare to enjoy the next day! So delicious! I feel the ‘cheese’ part of my Caesar Salad could have matched the rest of the gourmet food but it was still OK. No room for desserts here!

Very disappointed. Our meal took over an hour to arrive even with little kids in the group. Also, I ordered one pasta but received another and then the server who delivered it argued with me about it. It was my birthday and I felt like it was pretty spoiled. We had been to this restaurant a number of times before but were so disappointed.

We had the specials, the mussels (appetizer), Arctic Char and Beef tenderloin and they were very good, very tasty, and well priced. The service was also very good and the ambiance was a very cozy country style, well suited for Bragg Creek. It was a busy Sunday evening so it was bustling with guests including a table with a large party celebrating likely a birthday. We would definitely recommend the Italian Farmhouse!

I love the Farmhouse. The food is excellent and so is the service. The only thing I would like offered was a 9 oz glass of wine for around $12 a glass. There are decent wines at liquor store for $12 Retail which should be cheaper wholesale and should still offer a great profit and margin for the business.

A very cute and rustic venue, great ambiance, great service too.
The food was good for the most part, but not authentic Italian. The main courses felt overpriced for the quality. My husbands steak was very underdone, came out mostly rare when ordered medium rare. Caprese salad was just tomatoes with minimal
Amounts of poor quality cheese. The arancini was very tasty, as was the cheesecake.

Overall nice restaurant with good service, but you can get better quality food for the same price elsewhere.

Great atmosphere and great food. The service was a bit slow but no one at our table seemed too bothered. We did have a mix up with one of our entrees which resulted in one of our party eating after everyone else was finished. However, we still had a great time and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Will go back again to try something else on the menu.

We had a wonderful meal - started with warm olives, fresh bread and a bottle of the house red. Mushroom soup with Italian sausage was probably they best soup we’ve ever had. Our server Krystine, was outstanding - attentive with an excellent sense of timing. The elk scalipini was prepared to perfection. The place really is a gem - can’t recommend it highly enough.

Had a guest from the US with us. Fortunately her meal was great..the lobster ravioli. My husband’s linguini frutti de mer was terrible...over cooked pasta and seafood. My pizza was alright except for the heavy tomato sauce. Caesar salad was very good. Great server, wine and ambiance. It is disappointing to spend the $ and get poor food.
