  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

At this hidden gem inside Banff Park Lodge, European trained chefs create Italian specialties. Their beautiful presentations please the eye as well as the palette. The commitment to local ingredients includes Alberta raised beef and lamb, and Broxburn tomatoes.

Atmosphere & Accolades

La Terrazza offers a relaxed respite after a day of mountain activities. Linen-clad tables, rundlerock features and a Sundance Range view from atrium windows contribute to the fine dining experience. TripAdvisor has awarded this restaurant a Certificate of Excellence. Before or after dinner, enjoy a cocktail or special coffee by the fireplace in the adjacent lounge that also offers a separate, more casual menu.

The Banff Park Lodge is also home to family-friendly Crave Mountain Grill that boasts a great mountain view, plus a spectacular Sunday brunch and packed lunchbox menu.
