About the restaurant
Italy is a country of breathtaking beauty - both the land and the people. It is this beauty that is the inspiration for Bonterra, a lively and spirited Italian Trattoria.

Chef Kevin Hazelaar prepares contemporary Italian fare with the emphasis on simple, fresh ingredients with an exciting twist. Experience the passions of Italy in our casual dining room; on our stunning Tuscan terrace; or in the Wine Room for a more private event.

Our vibrant cuisine perfectly reflects the passions, style, and gusto that is the Italian way of life.

We also offer WEEKEND BRUNCH every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2:30pm for classic brunch dishes. Our classic Italian pastas and antipasti are available as well!

PARKING: Complimentary three hour parking is available in the Indigo lot located behind the restaurant. Entrance to the lot is on 10th Ave SW, across from MEC. Come inside via the back entrance, and register your license plate on the Indigo tablet inside, found in front of the hostess stand.

About the restaurant
Pizza Culture Napoletana brings you authentic, true-to-Italy Napoletana pizza and amore. As a registered member of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) you can put your trust in our crust.

Our founder and head pizza maker Jeremy Hube is hands-on in the restaurant and can be seen working our wood-fired oven (alongside the ever-reliable and talented Simon and Roman). We curate a wine list that is regionally appropriate and the good word on the street is that we make a mean sourdough (a side hustle we perfected in the Pandemic).

A friendly, casual and often bustling neighbourhood pizzeria with a dine-in dining room, side-street patio and options for takeout and delivery. If you've never dined with us before, we look forward to seeing you soon!

The food was good but I felt it was overpriced for what you got. For example the Hamburger was 24 but it did not come with any tomato and the patties were small.

About the restaurant
Our one-of-a-kind Canadian themed sports bar & grill has an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, drinks and amazing specials every night of the week. You’ll note our Canadian decor starts right when you walk up to our huge Inukshuk at our doors and continues throughout the restaurant in a “cheeky” Canadian fashion. We promise, when you come to The Canadian Brewhouse, you’ll instantly feel at home, because our house is your house…only we have way more TVs! You won’t find a better selection of screens anywhere for the sports you love! We even provide tabletop speakers for those nights when multiple sports and teams are playing.
