Autostrada is a place with a simple philosophy. Inspired by the casual osterie of Italy, the focus is on a simple menu where quality ingredients shine, regional wines that represent a place, and a room filled with warmth and bustle.

The food, service and ambiance were all great. I have been to this restaurant before but for whatever reason our most current visit was even better than the visit before.
My only minor complaint is that the olives were not as warm as they could’ve been and you may want to adjust your recipe by adding some garlic and rosemary with olive oil to the olive dish served warm. And if that is the only thing I have to complain about in life, then life is very good.

Went with my wife and 2 sons for a 5pm Saturday dinner. Everything was great. The pastas were fantastic and the rissoto may have been our favorite dish. Our waiter Conner was friendly and professional. He treated our bottle of wine very well. Often when you BYOB you get treated like a present. Not here.

Of course we will be back very soon.

Excellent service. Anchovy toast was unbelievable. The pasta was bit too al dente for me, but that might be personal preference. Would recommend!

This is one of the best restaurants in Canada, not just Vancouver. What you get for the price is totally amazing and unique. I’d kill for a restaurant like this in Edmonton. Top notch all the way, just like all of Chef Syme’s places have been. I’ll be back!!

Service went way beyond our expectations. We were treated like friends that came to their house. It was really lovely as I was entertaining clients and they were very impressed. The food was delicious and the recommendations on the variety and amount of food were spot on.

I would give ambiance a higher score if the noise level were not so high. I was dining alone, but even though I was not struggling to converse with a companion, I found it painfully loud. Luckily, the food was superb.

Excellent food and service. It's in an older building with no a/c so we found it very warm when we were in there. Worth it for the delicious food, though.

It has a very welcoming relaxedatmosphere. Good for groups and family occasions.

Great service.
We were going to a concert after dinner and the3 server was on top of our time scheduke and did not make us feel hurried at all.
The food was excellent and unique.
The pace was not too bust when we arrived but when we left after 75minutes it was buzzing in a good way!

Unusual wines you don't see everywhere.

The room was EXTREMELY LOUD!!! It was very difficult to speak to or hear my wife and we were close together at quite a small table. Food overall was good when it arrived but we waited at least 45 minutes between the appetizers and main course.

The waiter finally explained they were backed up once I got his attention. My main course was a pasta that tasted wonderful but was way under cooked. Not al dente but actually chewy. I expect after the long wait the kitchen rushed it out.

The restaurant was only half full when we arrived at 5:30. This was a Tuesday evening so not sure what the problem was. I would give it another try but I’m not sure how you get past the fact that you can’t actually have a conversation with the person you are with.
