The food - Delicious.
The service - Terrible.

We booked a reservation, thinking there would be an outdoor seating area or something - because the online booking system was still active.

When we arrived, the person we were greeted by was incredibly rude and condescending and even said "whoever booked this reservation probably shouldn't plan things anymore."

WOW. I understand that public health measures prevented us from dining in, no big deal, but to be spoken to like that was absolutely unacceptable.

We were pleasantly surprised! We did not have very high expectations in a tourist town. Our waiter Nico had a lot of tables to serve but he did a great job! The salmon and veal chop were outstanding!

Had the salmon and pasta and 4 cheese tortellini and both were terrific. Had a window table so the view was great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our server/busboy/guest check-in etc. was an amazing and organized one man show. He was doing everything and was very friendly and efficient. He made time to talk to all the guests besides just taking their orders. The food was amazing and quite filling. We still decided to have dessert. Usually we share but this time we each ordered our own. I took half of mine home. My husband ate all of his and still claims his cannoli was better than my tiramisu. They were very close as to which one was better. Everything was delicious.

My mushroom side dish and bison lasagne were wonderful, as was the shrimp appetizer. Shrimp was perfectly cooked with a delightful sauce. The Trebbiano wine was in stock and delicious. Nico’s service was exceptional and we enjoyed visiting with him.

Lovely little restaurant. The menu is limited but more than adequate (one item that my husband had hoped to order was sold out). The meals were perfect size and delicious. My meal was just lukewarm in temp but my husbands was piping hot. Would highly recommend. Great date night:)

An ok meal, we were impressed with the starter salad, but unfortunately disappointed with both of our entrees. The service was very good throughout the meal.

My dish (amatriciana) wasn't spicy as advertised but still tasty. My wife's dish (tortellini) was cheaper and tastier - better value, in my humble opinion. Probably just personal preference. This place is a little gem and a very welcome option during a Waterton winter with few visitors and not much open. Would be happy to return and try a different dish.

Would honestly like to give a higher rating. Top marks to our server Niko....professional and friendly. High marks for the calamari. Disappointed that the chicken saltimbocca was obviously just a frozen chicken breast.......... at $29 one would expect fresh chicken not just a frozen breast from a bag or box. My partner said her salmon piccata was very good but at$26 one would expect a little more than a 2" square piece. Please understand we recognize that pretty much all meals in Waterton are overpriced and that it is a little more difficult to acquire fresh vegetables but if you find it reasonable to charge high end prices then the meals should be more reflective of the price being paid. Having said all that the meals at the only other competing restaurant in the winter are much the same in terms of value. We love Waterton but once can find better value in other nearby resort style locations like Canmore. Sorry.

Fabulous meal. When I heard there were only 2 restaurants open, I figured my options were take it or leave it lol. What I didn't expect was a 5-star meal. The shrimp starter has an incredible tomato sauce with a nice little kick to it. Prawns were perfectly cooked. Although I was eyeing the wild mushrooms tortellini, I heard the waitress tell another table to save room for the cannoli, so I opted for the pear and fennel salad, and did just that. The cannoli were perfectly crisp the white chocolate & orange mousse was light and fluffy. My only minor grumble was that I got no hit of orange. I'm a citrus girl and was really looking forward to that. But, honestly, it was trivial. They were still delicious, and not too filling. The Italian blend is a really nice white wine, and paired perfectly with everything. I was traveling alone, but wasn't rushed. Service was excellent.

Dining out is a challenge during this Covid19 time. We felt very safe as all protocols were being observed. The special was Lamb, and I can never pass up lamb!! The tiramisu dessert portion was very generous, even for two.

Reservation was on time, no waiting needed.
Small dining room with tables spaced nicely.
Had shrimp appy, was very good
Wife had the arugula salad as an appy, Was just ok with way too much pancetta and capers, little bit of pear and light on dressing.
Main courses, bison lasagna was good. Salmon with seafood pasta was ok, but also way too many capers in this dish and sauce was underwhelming.
Bottle of wine replaced the need for dessert.
Looking at others in the room, if we were to go back I would consider just ordering appies and a bottle of wine. The cauliflower and calamari looked good.
Service was attentive and knowledgeable.
Prices up there and expected, because it is Waterton inflation.

Service was very slow, and main course was a great dish, although not at all like it was described. Was over 20 minutes before a drink order was taken & another hour before dinner arrived.

Even though the restaurant opened at 5:00 and we had a reservation for 5:30 they were out of the meal we ordered and did not notify us for 30 minutes so dinner took much longer than expected. The food we ended up having was absolutely delicious and I would recommend asking for their gnocchi as a replacement for any other accompanying pasta dish that is listed as it is marvellous and the sauce is to die for. Don’t be diet conscious here. Their calamarari although spicy is the best I’ve ever had and would highly recommend it. We were delayed but thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I’d go back gladly

There wasn’t much open in Waterton when we visited so we took a reservation at a very early hour for us and almost cancelled....sure pleased that we went because this place is a gem! We started with a pear salad that was perfectly complimented with just the right amount of red wine vinaigrette, blue cheese and a few figs....great beginnings and our mains did not disappoint. Salmon with tagliatelle vongole for me and a veal chop with gnocchi for my husband. He really enjoyed the tenderness of the veal and the tastiness of the sauce. I was impressed with the perfectly cooked salmon and the tastiness of the accompanying pasta. Jada, our server, was attentive and seemed to be careful of the vivid precautions in place. With a tiramisu to polish off the experience, we left very satisfied.

Undoubtedly the best restaurant in Waterton. The chef not only takes pride in his work but has the ability to put flavours together that really work. We have had every item on the menu and not one disappoints.

We love Trattoria! Lovely decor and fresh and tasty Italian cuisine. The calamari and the roasted cauliflower are standouts, and for caper lovers, there are lots in these dishes! The selection of pasta dishes is creative and varied and spicy or mild. We had a nice variation of clams linguini with lovely fresh clams and roasted peppers. The service was attentive and prompt. The wine list is reasonable and well selected.
Trattoria is a little jewel of a restaurant in wonderful Waterton Park. And, you can reserve a table on Open Table. Yea for that!

The restaurant has no ambiance. It is very plain. The food is ok but too expensively priced and it's not worth the price you pay. The front desk agent of the hotel is also the server and the hostess is the same person so we had to wait a while for service.

-we were staying in the hotel, and tried out their restaurant for dinner ..a birthday occasion. The dining area is small, so not noisy, with some tables likely removed for covid 19 purposes . Staff wore masks ..only one seen with one on anywhere in the village.
-menu is good but with limited choices (season just opening slowly ..few facilities open in park and town still)..ie same 1/2 doz options there the next day.
-food was good and tasty, and nicely prepared/presented. My meat entree was a bit expensive , and seemed smaller than quoted , but tasty. We would eat there again.
