Italian Restaurant
$$
“Grocery shopping is a pleasure here. A nice mix of Italian and locally sourced foods. Look for the Valbella bacon from Canmore. If you're to lazy, tired, hungry to cook, the premade pastas are perfect to take home, and heat in the oven. The freshly baked breads and ciabatta are a must. ”
