La Terrazza (Italian for Terrace) is proud to offer our new Italian menu. Be sure to taste fresh authentic Italian cuisine with an Albertan twist in the heart of downtown Banff.
made in the classical tradition with Atlantic lobster, tomato, Sardinian brandy, chili & fennel seeds
Italian classic; mascarpone cream, lady fingers & organic Sumatran dark roast coffee
Hand breaded chicken breast topped with prosciutto cotta & provolone cheese served over spaghetti in house made tomato basil's sauce & vegetables
Service was slow. Other who arrived later were served first.
Food was fantastic and good value. Our server seemed to be inexperienced so the flow of our dinner was a little off, but overall it was a good experience.
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.

Food was average and overcooked. Very dry chicken.
The food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. I would go there again.
Good afternoon Harleylil, Thank you for choosing to dine with us during your stay in Banff. It's very nice to hear that you enjoyed your dinner, loved your food and got the best service. We hope and look forward to seeing you next time when you are in Banff again. Kind regards Nathalie
Had a girls weekend in Banff and dined here on a Friday early evening. Bison carpaccio was delicious, melted in your mouth! Our main dishes were very good. Only downside was the butter served with the bread was through the roof salty. Great service!
Good evening AnnetteK, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience in the La Terrazza! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your girls dinner at La Terrazza and that our Bison Carpaccio met your expectations. We hope to see you in the La Terrazza again next time when you are around! Kind Regards, Nathalie Senkyrova Restaurant Manager La Terrazza
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!

It's very nice to hear that you enjoyed your anniversary dinner and got the best service! We look forward to seeing you in the future. Regards, Nathalie Senkyrova La Terrazza Manager
We had the Locals menu. The Stuffed Rissoto balls were tough. The Cioppino was the size of an average soup bowl and salty. The Chicken Breast was tough/overcooked but came with a lot of spaghetti. The Tiramisu Dessert was delicious. Ambiance was average. The servers and service was great. Guess the chef had an off night!
Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of your most recent visit, although we are sorry to hear that the chicken breast did not meet your expectations. We are happy you enjoyed the service! Also we do hope you will visit again as we would really love the opportunity to turn your opinion around and make your experience better! Kind regards, Nathalie La Terrazza Manager
The noise level was low until a table of 4 arrived. They talked very loudly. That’s not the fault of the restaurant.
I had the 3 course meal. For my main I had the gnocchi and it was superb! It was perfect.
The food and service were impeccable!
Good evening, We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dinner at La Terrazza and thank you for taking your time to leave us such a nice review. Hope we will see you soon again. Kind regards, Nathalie Senkyrova La Terrazza Manager

Really nice meal, ambience felt a bit dated but classy.
Good evening Adrienne, thank you very much for your kind review. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit and dining with us. We look forward to welcoming you back in future. Kind regards, Nathalie Senkyrova La Terrazza Manager
Staff were friendly and cheerful, but scarce. We had to wait quite a while between services for any server to stop by.
The food was exquisite - minus the potatoes which tasted bland and had a weird texture.
We decided to attend this restaurant for our honeymoon - all in all a great experience, and would return.
The service was great. They had a lot of COVID-19 precautions in place. The waitress were wearing a mask and they were very thorough when cleaning the table after a sitting.
Highly recommend and will be back

We are doing our best to keep our guest safe as much as possible. Thank you for taking your time for writing. Hope we will see you soon again. Kind regards, Nathalie La Terrazza Manager
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.
Good evening Danielle, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at La Terrazza. Our apologies for the menu. We just started our new fall menu recently and changed the online menus right away but unfortunately the update took a little time. Hope this inconvenient will not hold you back from giving us one more change on your future travels. Kind Regards, The La Terrazza team
Food was good, the decor could use some sprucing up. Service was ok and precautions were takes due to the virus, which was great

The food was amazing. They told us that there bread is even made on site. There was 4 of us and it was so good we went back the next night for dinner. Congratulations to the chef and staff. Very excellent job.
Good evening, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience in the La Terrazza! We are thrilled the lodge made bread was to your liking! We indeed proudly make the bread in house. We hope to see you in the La Terrazza again next time when you are around! Kind Regards, Nathalie Senkyrova Restaurant Manager La Terrazza

We will defiantly be back next time we are in Banff.

OK Food, good service. A little bit overpriced .
Good evening Seonor, Thank you for dining with us. It's unfortunate that the pricing didn't meet your expectations. We hope you would join us again in your future travels. Kind regards, Nathalie Senkyrova La Terrazza Manager
Caesar salad was good. Lettuce crisp, croutons were wonderful. Arrancini was very good. Got three deep fried balls as appie. Bread served was just average. Nothing special. My husband got Lobster Alfredo Fettuccini. Was very tomato-ie. Not at all like regular Alfredo. He liked the lobster tail but did not care for Fettuccini. I got Rosienne Pasta. It was good. Got three medium sized rosettes of pasta with ham rolled into them in a creamy tomato sauce. It was good, very filling. Couldn't finish it, Dessert was tiramisu which was beautifully presented. It tasted somewhat bland but good. All in all it was OK. Certainly not best Italian restaurant we have been to. Service however, was excellent.
Good evening Toni, Thank you for dining with us. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the service and we are sorry that your meal choice didn't meet your expectations. However we hope you would join us again in your future travels. We are thrilled you enjoyed the service. Best regards, Nathalie Senkyrova La Terrazza Manager
It was lovely
Good afternoon Ilouise, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience! We are delighted that it was a positive one and you enjoyed your anniversary dinner in La Terrazza. Hope to see you again soon. Best Regards Nathalie
Friendly, attentive staff. Good food presentation and quality. Good timing of courses. Would definitely go back.
Good afternoon WendyT, Thank you for joining us for taking your time to write a review. We are happy you enjoyed the time spent in La Terrazza and we met your expectations of the service, presentation and quality. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Nathalie
Good attentive service. Disappointing food. Too greasy, overly complicated. Had the salmon and panzanella. Bread was deep fried :( Salad was boring. Salmon was well cooked but bland and the potato and veg were a mushy slop on the plate. No flavour, no texture. Even the dessert (peach tart - and usually my favourite) was bland and mushy pastry, dry and overcooked peaches. Hoping for something special, maybe good classic Italian, to celebrate our anniversary - this let us down.
Good afternoon Johanna, Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at La Terrazza. We are disappointed that you had a bad experience and will make sure your comments are passed on to the appropriate team members so that our service is improved. We hope you would give us one more chance in the future so we can make it up to you. Kind Regards, The La Terrazza team
Order anything except for the steak. You can get a better steak at a liquor store Parking lot and while you’re at it get some frozen vegetables at Walmart. It will be better than that disgrace. Waste of money. Not going back.
Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review. We are really sorry about your experience and we wish you have brought it to our attention during the service so we could have done our best to meet your expectations. Hopefully you'll give us one more change in the future. Kind regards, Nathalie
Pasta was under done - I sent it back and my dinner arrived after everyone else had finished eating... this place is VERY $$$$$
Thank you for your review. We are very sorry about your pasta. Please let us know next time you come in and we will try our best to make the occasion extra special for you. Kind regards, Nathalie
The wait staff was very friendly and efficient! All the waiters check on each table whether or not they are their customers. From the appetizer to dessert the food was SUPERB! My boyfriend and I had the fettucine and Roselline which were both delicious. If you are ordering the Roselline; it is quite a big plate so make sure you come with an empty stomach. Felt very safe as everyone have masks, tables are spaced out nicely, and hand sanis everywhere. Will definitely eat here again!
Hi Mafel, Thank you for taking your time writing such of kind words and choosing to dine with us at La Terrazza. We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your dinner and our customer service. We are glad we met your expectations and will hope to see you next time again. Kind regards Nathalie
We went to La Terrazza to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint. The service was top-notch and the food amazing. My husband started off with the lobster bisque followed by the lobster fettuccine, both of which he thoroughly enjoyed. For myself, I had the Arancini followed by the Roselline which were also delicious and very flavorful. What was really a nice touch was when our waitress surprised us with a free gelato desert specialized to signify our anniversary. We would highly recommend La Terrazza for your special occasion or a romantic evening out.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us during your stay in Banff. We are really happy to hear how much you enjoyed your anniversary dinner with us as well as the service. We look forward to seeing you next time again. Kind regards Nathalie
The food was all under cooked. When we sent the dishes back and everything was brought back out it was still under cooked but warmed up in a microwave.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at La Terrazza. However, we have passed on your feedback to the kitchen and we will make sure this will not happen again and our service is improved. Also we greatly hope you will give us another try in the future. If you are ever back way we would love the opportunity to make it up to you.
This restaurant ever disappoints. Very comfortable atmosphere and furnishings. Food is first class. Presentation was not at the expense of portion or quality. Italian dishes all honoured their namesakes. Would love to go there regularly, sadly we live out of town.
Thank you for dining with us Jilld. We are always happy to hear that the meal and service was outstanding, the quality of everything we do is important for us. We are more than happy to welcome you back once you get a chance to come back to Banff!
Excellent food and service. I would highly recommend going to La Terrazza. The restaurant was a little challenging to locate (inside the hotel/plaza area without great signage), and the table we had was extremely sloped. My husband had to hold his beer glass to keep it from tipping over (as the glass he had was very tall with a small base) my wine glass was fine. The other tables were full or I may have asked to move. The food and the service made up for it though. Great restaurant.
We are happy we could welcome you in La Terrazza and we are thrilled you enjoyed dinning with us. Also we want to thank you for your review which we appreciate. Hope you will back soon when you are in Banff again!
It was very quiet in the restaurant, but that was to be expected, given the reductions in seating capacity. The server was very good, quite happy to be back at work. The house bread was really good and our lobster linguini tasted fantastic. My only issue was the size of the portion. I understand that lobster is expensive, but pasta is not. Very good experience overall.
celebrating Chef Nigel’s last evening at work
so sad that your position has been discontinued
excellent meal & service
Was a lovely experience. The service was good and the food was wonderful.
We really appreciate you taking the time to leave such a positive feedback about your experience with us. When you are in Banff next time, we hope to see you again!
Excellent food and good value for the price. Request a seat by the window for a mountain view!
Thank you so much for the visit and your kind words! We hope to see you again when you are visiting Banff next time!
