    Brought a group here and all had a good time. Service was spotty, but that is merely a sign of the times, as they are short staffed, just like the rest of the world.

    Stylish Ambiente. Rally friendly service. Not just any Italian restaurant where you go and have your pizza or pasta. Here you get the real thing: Handmade pasta, meat cooked to the point, fine tastes, very good dishes. We had the pleasure to sit "in the first row " next to the open kitchen so we could observe the very fast, effective and competent work done there. I especially remember the pasta man. It was a real pleasure to watch him doing a thousand things at the same time. Go there, have fun and enjoy an excellent meal!

    By far the best overall meal we had in Banff. Food was beyond words. Cabrese salad, prosciutto and arugula pizza and spaghetti with meat Balls. All so simple but all so delicious. Service was excellent. Didn’t have any more wine that we initially chose but suggested an equally priced and wonderful wine that we had not had before. Table beside us ordered the chicken Parmesan - mind blowing. Would go back just to order that.

    Perfect dinner on our last night in Banff. We trusted our waitress “from Port Dover” for recommendations on food and drinks. We were not disappointed. The homemade pasta was incredible and the chicken parmigiana was impressive in taste and portion size. Thanks for the fantastic food and service.

    We made a reservation for 9:00 and began arriving staggered at 9:02-9:15 as we were a bit late at a photo shoot and were quickly told after ordering a $85 bottle of wine that the kitchen would be closing in 5 minutes (9:30). I assumed because the booking link on open table had reservations options until 11pm that they were a later night restaurant. It was a special evening and we enjoyed everything as it was delicious. The awkward feeling of being rushed while the staff was doing their end of night duties could have been avoided had we known ahead of time when booking that the kitchen closes at 9:30 and that they expect all customers out of the restaurant at 10-10:30. You could feel it in the air. I just think when you go out for a special evening and are spending $200- $250 (3 people) you expect a bit more tact. Again this could have been avoided if there was more clarity on the closing expectations during the booking.

    I felt like the kitchen wasn’t very flexible. Only salad options was a Caesar. I requested a green salad, even just a Caesar without dressing or anchovies and maybe throw in some tomatoes. I was told the kitchen couldn’t do that. Not a lot of healthy options on the menu. The food was delicious but overpriced

    We were in Banff for a two day visit, and Lupo was recommended by the hotel staff. In a word, dinner was outstanding. Our waiter, Dean, made the evening special with his friendly and helpful attitude, and especially his help with selecting our wine and dishes to order. He even decanted the wine - nice touch indeed. My ricotta dumplings were out of this world. We also shared a gem Caesar salad that was terrific. Even the background music was especially enjoyable - standards by Sinatra, Buble, et al. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant, and ask for Dean to be your waiter. You will not be disappointed.

    Rude hostess. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and we’re told to come back in 10 minutes. Counted 8 empty tables. Ask if we could sit at the bar and have a drink while we waited, was told “suit yourself”!!! After 25 minutes waiting (way past our reservation time) we were seated at on of the still empty 8 tables!!! Food was pure crap!! Save your money and go elsewhere for GOOD food and service!!

    The service was poor. The food was disappointing - salty and the portions were soooo small. Their wine list was disappointing. We looked up a bottle that was $60… it is sold for $20. So disappointed that we wasted our date in this place. Will never come back here.
