It was one of those evenings when you come home and don't feel like preparing dinner. Not having pizza for quite some time we thought we'd try "Santa Lucia", located on Canmore's "Main" street. We were promptly sat down which is surprising for a Friday...More

We ate twice here during our one-week stay in Canmore. The food is absolutely fabulous! The wait staff is kind and attentive. The atmosphere is simple. The place is small, and got a bit cramped-feeling on Saturday night. But, let me tell you--the food is...More

I was able to get a table for 1 on a Friday at 7 P.M., which I would have had to wait a while for had I not made a reservation. It was soon apparent why they're so popular: the service is very prompt, warm...More

We were invited by friend, that was our first visit in Santa Lucia since we moved to Canmore last spring. Food delicious! My husband had mussels. I am GF vegetarian so when I was invited I thought I will finish as always with salad. I...More

One of the best kept secrets in Canmore. Delicious Italian dishes and complimentary wines and beers, at very reasonable prices. Have been several times and always very pleased with our choices and service. Seems to be very busy, so reservations are important. Not fancy decor,...More

Banff was virtually overrun, but Canmore was most enjoyable. Shopped at Boulder Mens Wear and was impressed with the stock as well as the service.
