Italian Farmhouse Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Great evening, food was exceptional, service very good as well. Was somewhat disappointed with where we were seated - hallway outside the bathroom which is the connector between the entrance and one-half of the restaurant. Did not appear overly busy so not sure why we were sat there when I had made reservations. Otherwise was a great evening!
This is my second time here and it definitely did not dissapoint. This restaurant is cozy, sweet, charming, homey and wonderfully whimsical. It is the cutest little place tucked away in the woods, perfect for a romantic date or a special family dinner or a girls lunch/dinner. The food was also absolutely fantastic! My husband and I enjoyed our evening here after a long week at work tremendously. Thank you! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. I cannot wait for my next visit to the Italian Farmhouse in Bragg Creek.
We discovered the IFH restaurant about 2 years ago and it has become our favourite go-to choice ever since for birthdays, anniversaries or a wonderful lunch. The food never disappoints. The ambiance whether inside or out is ideal, warm and cozy in winter, airy and cool in summer.
It can be intimate, or as one would expect an Italian family dinner to be, somewhat boisterous and somewhat noisy (but in a good way).
My one critique re our last visit was a lack of beer choices or it could have been a lack of knowledge of what brews were available. Although my 3rd choice was served in a 'Peroni' glass, apparently IFH does not serve this fine Italian beer. I know, picky picky.
I would recommend taking a beautiful drive along highway 22 to Bragg Creek and top it off with a great meal or lunch at this fine Italian restaurant.
Fabulous! Delicious food especially the butternut squash risotto!!!
Enjoyed everything about our meal. We would recommend it to friends and loved the atmosphere and décor.
Everything was absolutely fantastic. Food was excellent.
It took too long for our server to initially greet us and take our drink orders. This was uncomfortable as we were a party of 6 and 18% gratuity is assumed in billing. We ordered coffee after our meal and that was also taking an unusually long time so we cancelled the coffee order. It turned out they were making a fresh pot so communication would have been helpful. The food was delicious with many gluten free options. We were sat close to the open door and it was quite chilly.
This was the first time I visited the restaurant and I had high expectations based on the location and website. I had family visiting me in Calgary and thought it would be nice to drive out to Bragg Creek for dinner. The establishment is nicely situated in the trees and cosy inside. The pizza was good, but shell pasta dish that I tried was pretty standard fare and was quite small for the price. The artic char special was nice enough fish but was served on a bed of broccolini that had tough and chewy stalks. The food and service were okay but, to be honest, I probably would not make the drive from Calgary again especially to visit this restaurant.
Consistently good. Very happy to have a restaurant like the Farmhouse in my neighbourhood.
We took my parents who were visiting from England, after having several recommendations. Unfortunately our experience was not that great. We seemed to be seated at a lovely table, but unfortunately it felt like we were in a corridor as loads of guests for a private party arrived and were stood behind us for a very long time. This also seemed to affect our service as our waitress didn't know we were there and therefore waited a long time to get served and a long time for our appetizers to arrive. The food was pretty good when it did come. Overall was disappointed as it looks a lovely location and wanted to take my parents somewhere different and unique. Maybe we just caught it at a bad time.
This is a lovely place to dine. On a warm day the verandah would be lovely.
I was there about 2 years ago and had the most amazing ceaser salad ever, but this time it was just an average ceaser. Disappointed with that but my appetizer and meal were awesome. I had the Aglio which was a roasted garlic bulb with gorgonzola cheese and peperanta on baguette and the ravioli all'aragosta e gamberi which was the seafood stuffed ravioli with a zambuca dill cream sauce, so much flavour. I will definitely go back!
Very personalized treatment by the chef, always a great meal, wonderful setting!
It's worth the drive from Calgary for a special occasion. (The drive is beautiful and come early to enjoy the incredibly quaint little hamlet of Bragg Creek.)
Italian Farmhouse has it all.
Good food, excellent service, beautiful setting. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.
Very nice dinner, service throughout the evening was excellent.
My brother and sister in law were visiting from the United Kingdom and we were excited to introduce them to the Italian Farmhouse and they were not disappointed , we had a wonderful lunch and our waitress was was attentive and polite. We live in Okotoks and is definitely worth the drive

We enjoyed our lunch experience very much. The food was excellent as was the service. We sat inside and unfortunately, it was very noisy which made it difficult for enjoyable conversation. I will go back though.
We were celebrating our fifty-seventh anniversary with a couple of friends. It was a very pleasant evening with excellent food, friendly and efficient wait staff and great atmosphere. The restaurant is located in the small community of Bragg Creek, about a twenty-minute drive through the country-side from our home and the quaint, quiet setting made the drive worthwhile. I would ... and have ... recommended this restaurant to friends.
Fantastic service, amazing food. Well worth the drive from Calgary!
Excellent evening! Dinner with friends and even our fussiest party member loved it!
We took our mother in law from Ontario. 85 years old. She said it was the best part of her trip. The food was fantastic and she just loved the deck. The ramp made it very easy to enter and no stairs to contend with.. we will be back on her next visit.
Nice dinner for two. They have a few tables with love seats so I get to sit next to my girlfriend instead of across the table. Which we like! Great service and great food!
Another wonderful meal on the deck with absolutely outstanding service. The steelhead trout special was very creative and perfectly cooked. Topped off with great lemon and raspberry gelato. Yum.
Great restaurant with great food and wonderful staff. Beautiful location.
This is a favorite place of my wife.
Food was good, Mains were a bit dry and crisp and may have been sitting under the heat lamps a little long, some extra items were slow and needed a reminder.
Otherwise a wonderful place to dine,
The Italian Farmhouse is definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Dependable & consistent food and service...we have never left the restaurant feeling disappointed. A true gem in Bragg Creek!
We had a great time! We will definitely be back!
I've been here for both lunch and dinner before, and was looking forward to bringing three of my friends for their first visit.
Four of us went for a Saturday evening out. I'd made reservations and we hoped to sit on the patio, but were seated inside. Our table was right at the edge of the stairs, so we were able to really closely watch everyone (guests, servers, etc.) come in and out of the room. To be clear, that wasn't a good thing.
Service, right from the get go, was slow. Really slow. It was also very noisy, so all four of us were irritated by the time we left.
Food was pretty good. We all had different types of pasta and we devoured everything on our plates. Food prices were reasonable ($22 for a dish of pasta), but the price of wine was very high. For example, a 6 oz glass of Oyster Bay S. Blanc, was $11.00. The retail cost of the wine is under $20, so the mark up was pretty steep. I don't mind paying double the cost of a bottle, but four times the cost of a bottle is too high, in my opinion.
This visit didn't meet the standards that I had expected from the previous times I had visited.
The meal was fantastic! Our server..I think her name was Brooklyn?...was so nice. She as very attentive and friendly.
I can't wait to go back again.
This is by far the best italian restaurant in the Calgary area if not all of Alberta. Definitely worth the drive to Bragg Creek.
A delicious meal and very good service. One dessert was a disappointment and it was dealt with professionally.
Food was of excellent quality and just the right portion size. The server was
very professional and attentive. This is a perfect place for a weekday lunch
and just far enough from Calgary to feel like you are in the country. Will be
back for more!
I went there with a friend for lunch. I had a salad (great) and added grilled chicken. The chicken was not totally grilled... some red inside and not flavourful. Maybe a rub or seasoning would be nice. Pricing for average glass of wine ? Maybe a bit overpriced. Overall ok ... but not excellent.
The service was great. Friendly helpful server. Food was delicious. Took awhile to get our food but it is worth the wait. Lots of patio seating. Parking was tight the night we were there so we parked across the street and walked to the farmhouse. Not a big deal. Will definitely go back.
Great food and service as usual. Good menu and special.
We tried the Italian Farmhouse for the first time on the weekend and were very impressed with the food, service and ambiance. Our party of four enjoyed our meal on the patio. Each of our meals was well-prepared and very tasty, as was the appetizer. The service was very good and all servers were friendly and helpful. We found the prices to be very reasonable. The only concern at all was the availability of parking. The restaurant was very busy at the time we were there for our 5:30 pm reservation, and the other couple had to park a bit further away and walk. They were not concerned about it but it would be good to plan ahead in case the lot is full. Overall an excellent meal and great experience. Will definitely be back!
Delicious meal with friendly service. We have eaten at the Farmhouse a few times now and the food and service are both consistently great.
