I went to the old spaghetti house in Banff with my girlfriend. The ambiance of the restaurant had the feel of a 1980’s theme pub in the UK with coloured light shades and books on shelves. As an Italian restaurant I’d be looking for pesto...More

I’m 50/50 about this place. I had the vegetarian lasagna and it was mostly cheese. The salad was only iceberg lettuce drenched in dressing. The service was ok. The guy seemed kind of grumpy. The prices are on the lower side which is good. I...More

Had a delicious supper here. And extremely affordable. Will definitely be back. The minestrone soup was a delicious starter & that warm sourdough bread was amazing! Boyfriend and I both ate for less than 40$. Can’t wait to come back!

We had a great time at OSF, the meal was well priced compared to other restaurants in Banff. You get a lot of food with each meal, everyone took leftovers home. The kids even turned down the ice cream, because they were too full.
