Nestled in the heart of downtown, Teatro is a quiet patio hidden behind trees and a fence. Have a glass of wine and enjoy the delicious Italian food at one the classiest spots in downtown Calgary.

Banshee Pinot Noir. Just a little something to take the edge off. Pinot Noir is a favourite of ours at JustWine.

Bonterra Trattoria

One of the hidden gems on this list, Bonterra Trattoria’s patio is tucked away behind its restaurant and is the perfect blend of elegance and ambience.

JustWine Recommendation:

Tuesday’s special is “A Night for Pizza & Vino”, which features the chef’s choice of thin crust pizza and a wine to pair. Sounds like a JustWine kind of Tuesday.
