At this hidden gem inside Banff Park Lodge, European trained chefs create expert Italian cuisine with an Alberta twist. Chef Nigel Walker & his team take their inspiration from fresh, local ingredients to offer you an amazing experience in an intimate dining room. Their 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, Rundle rock features and a Sundance Range view from atrium windows contribute to the fine dining experience. 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.

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

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.
