If traditional Italian dining is what you’re into, vivo ristorante is a good choice. All food is served family style, in large bowls or platters for sharing.

You wouldn’t think a restaurant on a post-secondary campus would be considered one of the top eateries in the country, but Ernest’s at NAIT has broken the mould. Located at NAIT’s main campus, Ernest’s cuisine is prepared by second year Culinary Arts students and customers are served by Hospitality Management students.

“Canada has truly come into its own as a global dining destination and that is evident in the calibre of restaurants on this year’s list,” OpenTable’s Ziv Schierau said.

“This year’s honourees have excelled at providing world-class hospitality and the finest fare that is a reflection of the nation’s diverse cultural landscape and vast natural resources.”
