Amazing service. We had reservations and were seated right away. Our waitress was very personable with just the right amount of attentiveness. The food is incredible and even the fussiest of us were impressed. We will definitely go again. A very pretty drive from Calgary along highway 22X.

We went on Father's Day and had a party of 5. This was our first-time to the Italian Farmhouse. But it will definitely not be our last. We had Aranchini ( deep fried risotto balls)for starter along with their lovely bread. I had the Pollo and it was absolutely amazing. The other four members of my party also thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. We also ended up having dessert. I had the cookies and cream which was very nice. Their wine selection was very lovely. We had the most fantastic server. Bridey was our server, she was prompt friendly, knowledgeable and we never left wanting. Perfect Father's Day supper 🙂

Food was very good and service was very good on a busy Saturday. It was a bit noisy due to being a popular spot in Bragg Creek on a summer weekend.

My husband and I tried the Italian farmhouse for the first time last weekend. We loved how cozy and beautiful it was inside! The food was absolutely amazing! We will be back within a week or so!

Excellent service!

Always nice to go back there, well worth the drive from Calgary or anywhere for that matter. Pamela and Joseph know how to make their guests feel welcome and very much at home. More importantly, the food is to die for. Pick anything on the menu and you will not be disappointed. Tasty, nice portion, a beautiful and very clean restaurant. Pride in ownership is felt all around at the Italian Farmhouse. My daughter while visiting Calgary never misses the opportunity to go back once or twice a year to celebrate their wedding venue that holds so many great memories. The Best!

The Farmhouse has a unique ambiance and serves tasty food. It was easy to have a quiet conversation even though the restaurant was fairly busy. We would definitely come back again.

This was our second time dining & it was even better than before. We had spent a cool rainy day at a horse-jumping event and found out cozy corner table perfect. The women chose the salmon which was cooked to perfection with yummy accompaniment. Our friend had the stuffed pasta shells. My husband had the crab & lobster ravioli again... which he enjoyed . We all found the portion size generous without going overboard. Attentive, friendly staff made for a perfect meal.

We tried this restaurant a few years ago and we weren't impressed at the time. I'm glad we gave it another shot. The four of us in our party all started off with the soup of the day and everyone loved it. The main courses were good but not outstanding. We all shared one dessert and it was delicious! That was the best part of the meal the first time we went as well. We all really enjoyed the ambience.

Took my boyfriend here for his first time and he loved it! Some friends and I came upon the restaurant one day after a day of hiking and I thought it would make a great date spot. We’ve decided to make it our spot and have a date night there at least once a month. We had great service from Alex and the food was absolutely amazing👌🏼

What a great discovery! Great food, wonderful ambiance in a great setting. Tables not too crowded so private conversation possible. Pasta was world class and beautiful. Just need to work on making better coffee beverages and I would give the Italian Farmhouse a 10/10!!

Decided to head out to Bragg Creek to get out of Calgary for a few hours and found this gem in Bragg Creek. The food and service were excellent and the place was a very nice old farmhouse in the woods. Loved it and it was nice to experience Grade A service. The food was excellent and I plan to go back again soon. Well worth the drive out to Bragg Creek!!!

The restaurant is lovely and the food is fantastic. However, my husband told me that the men's washroom had mold in it. Considering this is a great restaurant they should take care to ensure that the washrooms are clean and not toxic in any way. If this is the same way next time I would be inclined to report them.

Food was delicious - exceptional quality for the price point - all the dinner entrees were under $30 except the steak and better than most dishes we've paid much more for at other places. Definitely worth the drive. It was full on a Saturday, so make a reservation. Live musican was nice touch but almost too noisy in the room to fully appreciate it.

We meet friends at this restaurant every now and then and find that it is always a good experience. Food is good; service is friendly and prompt and the wine/beer list provides choices
Always look forward to returning
