There's no view of Lake Louise but the mountain views are gorgeous. Antipasti buffet reminded us of a traditional trattoria. Don't miss either the osso buco or the braised beef short ribsMore

I was really excited for an Italian night, and this was good, but not great (especially for the money). We enjoyed the atmosphere and service and the pizza was excellent. The wine was also a nice surprise (good Chianti for a good price).More
