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: Reservations for the patio are available. There is a firm two hour time limit for outdoor bookings. Parties greater than 6 will be organized into separate tables, and groups larger than 10 will be expected to commit to a minimum spend. Once the outdoor area has been fully booked, all other reservations default to indoor seating. *Patio is weather dependent

Food and service was good but why aren’t they using the QR code reader when guests arrive? It gives off the impression of not really caring about the rules.

It has been 32 years since I have been to one of Calgary’s best restaurants. I missed Bonterra during Covid and this was my first time back. Wow! Great ambience, fabulous food with an awesome menu. It was difficult to choose our dinner because there were many great options. The service was amazing too!

Bonterra has never disappointed and it is back, as good and maybe even better than before!

I am used to and appreciate Italian restaurants that provide complimentary quality bread olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Please consider this. Boccacini salad very good. Ravioli a little too sweet. Servings generous. A little noisy. I found our square table for four to be a little too small I felt a little cramped. Perhaps it was the restaurant manager but this lovely man came by and checked on us during our meal and it wasn’t our waiter he was very engaging and poignant questions. I really appreciate that engagement by the restaurant manager I also really enjoy it when the chef comes out and does that. It’s a very classy move and it builds loyalty in the diner to come back.

Bonterra has been a favourite destination of mine for many years. This time I chose it for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint. The outdoor patio is a great place to sit, and warm with the fireplace and heaters.

The heaters were on full blast and we were told they could not turn them down. We were melting! Server was very nice but very slow. We had to wait for our wine and our bill a very long time. We felt forgotten.

My husband and I love the outdoor patio seating. It was a bit chilly that evening, but when the heaters were turned on, everything was nice and cozy. We were in a bit of a hurry to eat before attending another engagement, and the ever-present staff made sure everything was delivered to us with enough time to spare. The drinks were great, the atmosphere was heavenly, and the food was outstanding.
Thank you, Bonaterra!

We were on the cute patio and had a delicious meal while celebrating a birthday. Would easily recommend for date night or a good family meal. Be sure to park in the back.
