We love this restaurant and have eaten at Ticino multiple times. The food is fresh, well prepared and service is excellent. The fondue dinners are a perfect classic mountain dinner and the regular mains are equally delicious. We celebrated our son's birthday at Ticino and it was truly special!

Make reservations ahead if time: they are busy until after 8 pm. Service was great. Food was very good not fabulous, portions on smaller side: we had no leftovers. Fondue was good, atmosphere of a family restaurant. Had a couple of vegetarian options, nothing vegan.

Terrible restaurant. Overpriced bad food. Glass was dirty and stuck to the table cloth as a result. Plates are old and marked black. Food was almost inedible. Do yourself a favour and go anywhere else.

The fondue with strips of meat and shrimp was delicious. The flavor of the fondue broth was perfect. I will be going back again!

I'm a big fan of the Melting Pot but I have to say this fondue was the best I've ever had. My husband had some braised elk, if I recall, which just melted in your mouth it was so tender. Service was great also. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it wasn't conveniently located on the main strip in... More

My husband and I just came back from spending a couple of nights up in Banff for business and pleasure. I was searching for a place that served muesli and figured Ticino would be a good place to go for breakfast on our last day there. I don't usually like giving a review rated low but I was very disappointed... More

We went for New Year's Eve expecting fine dining and a great meal. Unfortunately, this did not happen. The food was average as was the service. The decor was dated and needs an extensive makeover. The price was very expensive for the menu selections we got.

We had the dishes of the day for dinner and it was great food. The highlight was the chocolate fondue with fruits.

Service--very good; waitress was friendly; wait times were reasonable Food--My companion was disappointed that the turkey dinner on the menu was unavailable. He didn't especially care for the flavours of the beef tenderloin stroganoff entree. In contrast, my gnocchi pasta dumplings with house smoked duck breast on a walnut sauce was wonderful! The dumplings and duck were delicious, and I... More
