The evening started off with some tasty appetizers then the main course showed we were not impressed. Menu was miss leading. Deserts were a great finish. A lot to learn in those main dishes.

My pizza tasted like butter & my salad had barely any sauce but our server was fantastic and made up for it in service without a doubt

Great cocktails to start and the Caesar salad and pizza were both well presented and tasted fresh. Small wine list but we found some nice choices at reasonable prices.

Went here for Valentine’s Day and the fire alarm going off during dinner, the day after the earthquake in Banff was fun! It has been an eventful week there. Food was delicious and the waiter was friendly and gave great service.

The server was very below average. She checked on us once and it was 10 seconds after our food was delivered. There was one guest talking on his phone with the speaker on and shouting on his phone conversation completely wrecking the environment and the staff just let it be

Service was great,but quality of food was mediocre. My wife’s meal was hot, but my meal was on the cold side. Also food was too salty.

I found it very unusual in these COVID times to have a bread toasting station where unmasked strangers gathered around. Not smart of management in my opinion. It would be far smarter of the restaurant to offer toast directly from the kitchen.

The best part about Pacini was the different kinds of bread and garlic butter you get with your meal! We ordered Linguini Fettuccini. It was okay but missing some extra flavours. The service was very friendly and the restraunt was clean.

One dish came to us cold. They brought a second and it was not all that inspiring. They gave a discount on that item to try to make amends. Bread station is a fun idea. The bread itself was nothing fancy. Overall, expensive with nothing to bring us back.

Pretty average chain Italian. Nice idea that it is low salt etc. But the food itself isn’t so exciting. The toast your own bread idea is also interesting but basically just toasted, sliced bread. So, all in all a nice restaurant but not that memorable.

We really enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent. There was a wine promotion and the wine was very good. The Bruchetta was fantastic and I am sure we will be back to have it again. The menu has many options to choose from. An excellent evening.

The family enjoyed the dining experience very much. We appreciated the menu selection and the quality of the meals. The bread bar was also a nice touch. The cost was very reasonable for a Banff restaurant.
On a previous visit to this restaurant it was also very good. I would recommend it to our friends.

We specifically asked that salads be brought first but all food was brought together. Our food was cold by the time salads were done. Was only 1/2 full but felt we were being rushed out the door.

The breakfast/brunch options were great - especially heading into a long drive afterwards. It's the location at the start or the end of the Banff Avenue strip of restaurants and shops.

The service was nice, the server was very friendly and food was ok. However when i ask for soy milk and lactose free milk, server told me they don't have any of that and didn't offer alternative solutions. I think the restaurant should look into offering milk alternatives.

Unfortunately service has a big impact. We took the time to make a reservation and when we got there were several people in front of us that didn’t. Not a big deal since it wasn’t that busy but others without reservations got seated in nice places and we my daughter and I got out in a corner behind a post for two. The other couch like seating was the filled with other parties of two. Initial greeting to service w by the server was weak. We were just taking up a table and he couldn’t get us out quick enough. Unfortunate because they food was good.
