The only reason I can’t give Italian Farmhouse full marks is because of the cost. It’s a bit expensive, and therefore, not of outstanding value. That being said, the food and service were both outstanding. We came from Calgary to celebrate my friend’s birthday and had a great lunch. We started with the warmed olives (something new to my guest) and the delicious Arancini con Formaggio (deep-fried risotto balls) - lovely and cheesy with a little spice from the chipotle tomato sauce to make them perfect. My friend had the butternut squash ravioli in what I seem to recall was a pumpkin and cashew cream sauce. She loved it! I had the Cesare (sic) salad topped with a baked salmon filet and it was cooked to perfection. For dessert we shared the tiramisu and I especially loved the whole coffee beans as a garnish on it. 😁

Our favorite spot. They were short-staffed so the greeting and seating took longer than expected - however once seated - all was perfect as usual.

We got the table we asked for in our reservation.

The waitress was lively and gave candid recommendations on new vs regular menu items.

Food was amazing as usual.

Still one of our favourite local spots for a nice night out.

We always consider the Italian Farmhouse restaurant as one of the choices we would dine and enjoy the evening whether it be a date night or to celebrate a special occasion. The food and service is what bring us back over and over again. Keep up the excellent cooking/service and we will be back again soon. Thank you ... Cirila

Only reason I rated service for 4 star is there was only one server for busy weekday lunch time. He was working hard in that challenging situation so I am rating him 5, he said it was unusual volume for weekday lunch time that day.

This upscale farmhouse has a wonderful ambiance without being pretentious. The experience starts with the picturesque drive from Calgary to the restaurant in Bragg Creek where it's nestled in the trees. The staff are attentive and the food is delicious and fresh. The wine menu is small but has great choices with organic options as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a date night.

The group tables were too close together and we felt squished like sardines at our table. They seat 6 people at a table that should probably just seat 4. I would strongly recommend rearranging the tables or removing one altogether to give more breathing room. Not a great ambience and overly noisy. Our waiter was nice and attentive. The food was ok, but the elk was underdone and the ribeye steak was a very poor cut. The beet salad was below average. The calamari was good as was the focaccia bread. The lemon chicken was way too salty. We expected a better experience for the price. Sorry to have to leave a bad review.

We’ve already recommended your restaurant to some family/friends - and they are so looking forward to dining there, real soon.
I had some dietary restrictions - gluten free - and I was well informed about what I could and couldnt have.
The food was very tasty - lots of flavour - and all the dishes were absolutely delicious.
The whole atmosphere was very warm and inviting.
Love the dining experience in your restaurant.

Thank you.

Beautiful little restaurant. Quaint and charming. Food was good. We all had pasta. I’ve had better Italian food. But for the price, which we found very affordable, it was very nice

One of the best Italian meals we’ve had!
We had the calamari appetizer - always a favourite - and had the steelhead trout special. The trout was perfectly cooked and served hot over a bed of excellent risotto. As it was a birthday celebration the service afforded several nice touches - including Prosecco to start. The service was just right - helpful, thoughtful, and not intrusive.
Will be back!!

Arrived and were seated right away but the location, couch in particular, was very soft and low. We asked for another table which was accommodated. Our service was fine, food was very good. All in all, we had a very enjoyable evening.

Loved the atmosphere, even though there was a family on the other side of the restaurant with 4 or 5 young children making lots of noise. Chose one of the specials for dinner and it wasn't great. Would definitely go back and try a menu item.

Great food and great, friendly service.

Menu is diverse but not overwhelming with choices.

Great flavor, good portions and very good presentation.

Quiet restaurant allows for conversation. The country atmosphere is great and the seating is cozy, feels like fine dinning at home.

We had a wonderful meal with our family visiting from the UK, whenever they are in town, it's our go to restaurant, it's well worth the drive from Okotoks

The food was delicious as were our beverages, an excellent selection of wines and spirits

Our server Josh was delightful, very polite and thoughtful and attentive.

Well done Italian Farmhouse

My husband and I went for dinner on New Years Eve and enjoyed our dinner very much. Great service,could have skipped the 4 th course as the portions were large. Only complaint was that my dessert was frozen hard as a rock...even for a fork, but the cherries were yummy.
