Beautiful dinner. Just perfect!
I was disappointed with the service at this restaurant. The service at the Autostrada on Main was much better. We had ordered the house bread and when it came I asked for some olive oil only to find out when the bill came that they had charged for it. I hadn't been charged at the Main location. I also found the restaurant very noisy. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
This was our seventh or eighth visit since last December. Our server suggested the steak dinner. We asked if it would be too much for the two of us as several visits ago another server informed us the steak is meant for four people. We ordered it, and while it was delicious, it was indeed enough meat for four people - far too much for the two of us.
The food, service, and atmosphere at Autostrada Downtown, is amazing. I had the Bucatini Cacio e pepe and it was to die for. As was the anchovy foccacia and caesar salad. The burrata is also delicious, but fairly pricey for what you get, but that is typical of burrata anywhere. Our waiter was super friendly and on point with his service. I cannot wait to go back!
Great spot! Had a nice local neighbourhood vibe. Comfortable, attentive service and yummy authentic Italian food. Would definitely come back next time we’re in Vancouver.
Amazing service. Great food. Smaller portions but well worth it. Highly recommend.
We had dinner on Saturday evening.......Wonderful meal and great service from Gavin as well. The staff seemed to be happy and worked together seamlessly. The best nouveau Italian food we have eaten
in ages. Tuna tartare was perfect and the duck pate a delight to the taste buds. Homemade
pastas are perfectly cooked. Look forward to making Autostrada Downtown our neighborhood go to dinner spot. Thanks for a great experience.
Hands down my favorite restaurant in Vancouver. The food, the staff and the ambiance all all 11/10. I could eat here multiple times a week
This team does it everything right everytime!!
Shout out to Dustin and Scott
Very nice for a date or casual fine dining experience with friends. The atmosphere is very nice but not pretentious. The house Red was so good I looked into buying a case after. The food was so good I'd struggle not ordering the same thing next time but I want to try more.
Second time to eat diner here. Food and ambience is excellent!
Perfection at every turn. Food is insanely good, service was warm, fun and exceeds all expectations. Highly, highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
Great spot - will definitely be back!
Simply the best spot to eat out in the city! Visited Autostrada for the fifth or sixth time since last fall and I'm wondering why I bother eating anywhere else! Amazing food and the team and the venue are so warm and welcoming! We've already booked in for next month.
We've made the Main Street Autostrada a regular stop and were thrilled to find that the quality -- in all respects -- has been shared with the W.Pender Street address. They're the same, and yet different. Menu is familiar enough; atmosphere is a little more olde worlde, a lot less moderne. Liked it a lot.
Fantastic! Unpretentious rustic homemade Italian. Great service. Would go again when craving Italian food!
New favourite Italian restaurant in the city! Service was outstanding and the food was amazing!
We love Autostrada for its fabulous service, beautiful interiors - and especially the food. Fresh, innovative, and delicious.
This is an excellent restaurant. The food and the service are fantastic. But the room is not air conditioned and it got very warm.
Sarah the server tries to secretly add fees to the bill! Without asking, when she tell you she will bring a bread for you when you order a burrata, she adds $8-10 to your bill!! For a bread?! Seriously? Also she mistakenly adds much more expensive glass of wine on to your bill. Be careful. Everything else is good except the sketchy service
The food was amazing and the service was incredible! A little too warm inside was the only set back, but overall a great experience.
The menu has some simple classics that they do very well, such as the burrata and foccacia (recommend both of those together), and some that are more modern spins on italian/meditteranean food.
The wine list is large and features a good variety, with the wait staff being very helpful with the choosing to make sure that you enjoy what you're getting.
Fun atmosphere and a more intimate set up, but the restaurant is always a little warmer than would be most comfortable, both during the winter and the summer.
Could only have been a better dining experience if I possessed enough extra stomachs to have eaten everything on the menu and fresh sheet. Food, service, ambiance - tens across the board.
My Autostrada experience far exceeded my expectations.
The efficient seating service by the Duty Manager Scott was very welcoming.
Table service was exemplary.
As for the 3 courses I chose, each one was a taste bud explosion served with impeccable presentation.
Great wine list.
I cannot recommend Autostrada highly enough.
Congratulations to the Management and all the staff.
Dishes were perfectly executed. Service was exceptional and friendly. The team is top notch.
Best place in Vancouver!
What can you say when everything was more than amazing!!
Super wine selection!!!
The chefs out did themselves!!
We can’t wait to return
Excellent food and service. The Prime Rib has to be the best in the city!
We were a party of 5 on a Sunday night. We travelled from Alberta and were going around BC for 2 weeks. We had 3 nights in Vancouver and picked Autostrada as one of the places we wanted to spend our already limited time at.
Being in the restaurant industry ourselves and finally getting to be the guests for once, we were really excited to be going to a nice place, drink good wine, eat good food and get good service.
Food: Delicious! The balance of flavours in the pasta dishes were amazing.
Wine: We are huge fans of Blue Mountain so happy to see that on the list of and it did not disappoint.
Service: The reason we couldn’t give out 5 stars. Server was cold, rude, inattentive and just seemed like she didn’t want to be there. We had to fill our own water glasses most of the night as well and when they did come to fill it, they gave us sparkling instead of still. Again, we also work in the industry so can usually be empathetic if the service is poor if there’s lots going on in the restaurant. But it definitely wasn’t too busy when we came in. Maybe it’s because we came in later on a Sunday night and they were trying to get out of there but whatever it was, it’s disappointing when you plan something for months and want to have the best experience but that’s easily ruined by one person giving poor service. It’s a nice reminder that I now tell my own staff at the restaurant I work in to realize that people are going out and spending their money to be served and to have that great experience, and it’s disappointing when that experience is ruined by bad service. Service 100% matters, especially because people have so many options to choose from these days.
Hi there, we were a group of 4 people who were seated at a table/booth for minimum 6 which wasn't the best set-up & being able to hear each other. It was way too big of a space for 4 people. Thanks
Great professional service and it's nice to be in a restaurant where the serving staff is very confident in their food and wine offerings and attentive to clients needs
great evening all 5 guests felt it was a good to great dining experience.
Friendly, helpful staff, interesting menu. Nice wine-list... what's not to like?
Excellent pasta and service in a very noisy room.
Great work by Scott the manager and very polished server !
Food v salty!
Awesome. Authentic. Amazing staff. Food is some of best Italian in the City.
Only thing I have to say is, those wooden chairs are super uncomfortable. With no air conditioning it’s even worse. But realistically I would just ask for the other chairs because the food is that good to go back over and over
Service was excellent. Food & drinks good. Only issue was no air conditioning on one of the hottest days of the year.
