Italian
Italy is a country of breathtaking beauty - both the land and the people. It is this beauty that is the inspiration for Bonterra, a lively and spirited Italian Trattoria.

Chef Glen Manzer prepares contemporary Italian fare with the emphasis on simple, fresh ingredients with an exciting twist. Experience the passions of Italy in our casual dining room; on our stunning Tuscan terrace; or in the Wine Room for a more private event.

Our vibrant cuisine perfectly reflects the passions, style, and gusto that is the hallmark the Italian way of life.

PLEASE NOTE: All reservations are for indoor dining only. Our patio is seasonal as well as weather dependent. Calgary's crazy weather makes the availability of this space uncertain and unpredictable. We are hoping to have it open by mid May.

Please enter the restaurant through our parking lot entrance off 10th Ave.

Tough start waiting 45 minutes for our reservation, which they obviously have away. They tried to make it right with a round of Prosecco, which definitely helped.
The caprese salad needed salt, pepper and nicer heirloom tomatoes. The veal meatballs were great! The #8 pizza was excellent - highly recommend. My wife’s gnocchi was good. She said the pillows were soft and well made - but the sauce could have been elevated. The patio was awesome - warm and covered with plenty of heaters!

Had a reservation for 7:00 and we didn’t get seated until 7:45. Not sure what happened but it didn’t feel great and no one explained why or no apologies. We were just starting to look online at what other patios had openings immediately as it was a special occasion when they finally seated us. NOTE: 3 people in front of us were walk ins and mentioned that they were glad they came when they did. 4 people arrived about 5 minutes after we did, their reservation was for 6:45 and were 20 minutes late. Was really disappointed to be seated after them and the walk ins. Not sure if we’ll come back, was my favourite go to restaurant. Other than being treated that way at the beginning, once dinner was on its way the food was delicious and service was great. Also note that the patio heating was perfect, my mother was warm enough!

Well, this is the only restaurant that I go to in Calgary and it is the closest thing from a restaurant in Italy. So I do not need to talk about the quality of the food and atmosphere. But one aspect that has always caught my attention in all the years that I go to Bonterra is how it diverts from other restaurants in regards to the server's attire. Everyone is conservatively dressed, and the focus is on the quality of food and service.

What a great little spot The food was fantastic and service great. Who knew the patio was such a great location, I never would have thought to come here for patio dining. Now I wish more places had such a cozy, comfy environment for a patio.

The food was low quality. I've been here before and the food was amazing (in November) and got the same dishes. This time they were really not very good. Not worth the money

We loved the starters (split pea soup and whipped ricotta) and well as our dessert (the best chocolate cake), however, neither myself nor my husband were impressed by the main dishes that were ordered (pork tenderloin special & short rib). We found they lacked seasoning (carrots were a bit too hard and pork was fatty).

It was such a lovely dinner and I had checked off that we were there for an anniversary when booking the table and didn't think anything of it. When we arrived they gave us champagne and were so lovely and wished us a happy anniversary. The food and service here are on another level. We will be coming back for sure.

Food was absolutely delicious! My husband says it’s the best Caesar Salad he’s ever had.

This is in our top 5 best restaurants in Calgary! We just love it here... especially in the summer on their outdoor patio area. I just love the ambiance and beautiful outdoor planters.
