This little hidden gem is probably the best restaurant in Banff. The COVID era menu is a bit subdued compared to the usual great selection spread, but the quality is still excellent, service is fast, friendly and efficient.

Whenever I come to Banff I eat at this small restaurant inside Banff Park Lodge.
I have my favorites but tried some of newer menu items and all were great.
Simple tasty Arancini starter, followed by a lobster risotto served with a lobster tail, and then their version of Tiramisu, washed down with an affordable NZ Marlboro Sauv blanc.
Tables all nicely spread out given covid rules.

Terrazza offered a high end menu which we were not familiar with however, once the names were translated into English, it was good. Good portions but not enough options for non meat eaters.

Excellent choice for a quiet high quality meal. Superb salad as a starter, wonderful orange Grand Marnier palate cleanser between courses. Entree was good, not as good the starter. Tirimasu dessert was beautifully presented and tasty. Nice ambience here with a relaxed quiet atmosphere and laid back but very efficient staff.

Food was very minimal taste and to me just wasn’t worth the price at all. It kind of just tasted like Costco chicken parm and canned spaghetti. It was alright but just really not worth the price and the ambiance was just kind of disappointing because there’s a bar and lounge area and then there’s a few tables where the prices are just jacked.

Our anniversary dinner celebration at La Terrazza was an absolute delight.
The food, flavours, selection, ambience, value for money and attention to detail was noticed and noticeable! We chose to enjoy the "Taste for Adventure" food menu (Oct/Nov 2020) and were blown away by the quality, pairings, presentation and taste. This is, for sure, our new fav dining destination in Banff. We had noted in our reservation that we were visiting to celebrate out wedding anniversary. We were surprised with a chocolate anniversary wish at the end of our evening - such small but impactful attention to detail.
Huge round of applause, La Terrazza Staff and Management. We will be seeing you again!

Must order the Lobster Risotto! It seemed every table in the restaurant had someone ordering this dish. The kids loved the noodles & bread and butter to start. The calamari was also quite delicious.

The prices were a bit high for the amount of food you got, ie the Bisque and Caprese Salad.

The ambience was nice, but the roof dripped on us a few times as it was snowy and it is all glass where we were seated.

Very disappointed. Food overpriced and over salted. Despite booking weeks ahead for ur daughter's birthday, we were seated adjacent to the sports lounge with large HD TV and next to the kitchen door. Couldn't hear ourselves with the noise in the restaurant. Here were our food issues: First, cocktails were sent to our table with sticky stems - our waitress kindly fixed the problem; Second, three flies were around us the entire evening - doesn't say much for the restaurant since our table was next to the kitchen. Third, we asked for a salad substitution but this was ignored. Would have been an easy fix. The wrong main course was brought to our table which could have been handled graciously. They were very rude that it was somehow our fault and our waitress was taken to task by a superior who had brought the food out - it was rectified but not very professionally. Food presentation was excellent. But the taste didn't match the presentation. Risotto oversalted, osso bucco quite fatty, gnocchi so salty that my daughter couldn't eat it. An overcrowded restaurant with insufficient staff. Definitely will not be returning.

Anniversary dinner and it was lovely. We chose the “Local Feature” that included an appetizer, main and dessert. Mushroom salad appetizer was very good, Parmesan chicken with spaghetti was ok but definitely a good portion, tiramisu desert was very lovely as well. Enjoyed a bottle of Italian Red wine that was quite nice and not exorbitantly over priced. The service was absolutely perfect. Overall, a very nice evening, thank you!

The restaurant itself was nice but it was eerily quiet you couldn’t hear the music and it was super dark. The service was ok we had like 3 waitresses which was a little weird. The food was fair. The menu on their website does not match the actual menu at the restaurant at all. The food was very bland and water logged or to greasy. Would not recommend especially for the price point.
