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.

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

Very nice date location. Limited starter choices, no bread and olive olio served ( i thought that was odd) The mains are very delicious.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.

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.

The food was very good, but we waited for an hour for our food after our appetizers. Clearly there was a problem in the kitchen but our waitress never told us there was a problem or offered us anything while we waited not even an explanation. Only when we were leaving and we asked why our meal had been so delayed while everyone around us was served did she tell us there was a mixup in the kitchen.

We love going out to Bonterra Trattoria for dinner. It is one of our favorite places to go out. It never dissapoints. The whipped riccotta was delicious, and we both enjoyed our main courses of Short rib and Tagliatelle were both spectacular. Our server Amaris was wonderful and attentive. An evening out at Bonterra never disappoints.

Thank You!
