I'm surprised that this place has so many great reviews. I had the Ruben and my wife had the turkey, bacon and brie. She took one bit of hers and couldn't finish it. I choked mine down as we didn't have time to eat anywhere...More

Surprised to see such rave reviews about the pizza. Very disappointing. Definitely not wood fired (or if it is, it doesn't taste like it), and FULL of garlic, so definitely no good for anyone who doesn't like garlic! 1st time ever... couldn't finish an 11"...More

A popular and friendly restaurant. Make reservations if you're going at peak times. Delicious food and friendly service. Good for evening meal, quick snack or eating at the bar. The pizzas are so fresh and all ingredients locally sourced. Couldn't recommend enough.

Great Pizza,fantastic salads with really good dressing too. One of the best experiences we've had - better than any Italian restaurant in NY or California. We would definitely come back!!!

Not the traditional italian pizza indeed, but a good option while in Banff. It is a good place to go with friends or family, as you can share and taste different things. Recommended, even though you should not expect pizza at italian standards. Good drinks...More

For families, for adults, for everyone. Like most restaurants and bars in Banff, all are welcome and all are catered for. They serve alcohol, they have sports on the TV but it is not exclusively for people wanting those... More

I don't know for sure but suspect a busy and popular restaurant like this in Banff WOULD have a gluten-free option. However, to be sure probably best to contact them directly for your answer.
