This place was like any chain pasta joint you get back in the UK! Friendly staff, good service, tasty food and huge portions! Free desert and starter also provided! Go here if you want a normal meal but with tasty food!

We LOVED the food, the prices and the service. This was a nice surprise after several days of "pricey" entrees. If you like Olive Garden don't miss this little place in the Cascade Shops (mini-mall) downtown Banff.
