We had our "date night" at Bonterra on a busy Friday night. The service was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the five course Chef's choice sampler and every dish was beautifully presented and flavour full, the portion sizing and timing of the different courses couldn't have been better. Thank you for the wonderful dining experience. We will... More

This is one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Calgary. They have good food and a very good wine list. I highly recommend it.

Bonterra Trattoria takes Italian food to the next level. The lamb shank was fall of the bone, melt in your mouth. The carrots and beets had a nice crunch. Everything was cooked to perfection. Being a meat lover, the starter was the meat balls. Nicely spiced in a tasty tomato sauce. Tables are nicely spaced for private conversations. A fair... More

Six of us went to Bonterra Trattoria for a celebratory dinner: We found the décor and atmosphere quite authentic, and the service was sincere and attentive without being invasive. The food was nicely paced and the menu was varied--to the point that making selections was difficult. We all tried something different and general consensus was excellent food, served hot--(that's a... More

The food was decent, but not amazing. We ordered meatballs to start and pasta for entrees, but it was not mind blowing. Would not return.

We choose Bonterra to celebrate a special occasion. Was in the middle of the week, I don't know if they weren't expecting much people in that day, but that was just one person serving the 4 tables, one being a large table. The service was very poor, the server made us wait forever to take our orders and in the... More

Bonterra has officially become my favorite restaurant in town! We have been there for dinner a few times, and the food as well as the service is always excellent! The wine choices are fantastic, and if you get the chance to go during the summer, you absolutely have to get a spot on the patio.

Twice now we have chosen this restaurant to celebrate something special .unfortunately both times were extremely disappointing. The restaurant caters to parties in their upstairs room,but they seat private tables upstairs as well. We arrived for a great dinner.we reserved three weeks in advanced,but were seated right next to an extremely loud private party. Interesting enough this restaurant thinks a... More

We parked in the lot behind the restaurant and picked up a ticket at the machine that gave us four free hours. Walking in through the entrance off the parking lot, we entered into a warmly lit restaurant and were welcomed by staff. Our friends were already seated and we quickly joined them. Our Hungarian born waiter also welcomed us... More

Be it a romantic dinner, business meeting or girls night out, this is the perfect place to go. The food was fantastic, the serving staff were prompt, polite, friendly and knew exactly what wine or entree to recommend. The atmosphere is perfectly set with a classy yet friendly atmosphere. It really is a hidden gem in Calgary and I would... More
