    We had penne with sausage, bucatini with meat sauce - both delicious! Fresh pasta and sauce combinations worked. Loved the special Valentine’s cocktail and our server was very sweet. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!

    It was our first time to Nostra Tavola- dining with friends. The restaurant is nice and vibrant, the food delicious, but our waitstress could have been better informed. We had two diners requiring a gluten free diet. We had heard from other friends that gluten free options were available. The menu didn’t have items marked, so we needed to ask our waitress. Unfortunately, she wasn’t very knowledgeable nor helpful. We had to ask her to please ask the kitchen about an item, she didn’t offer. That said, food was delicious and we will be back for a second try.

    Very good pizza. The Bee-sting. Great crust. Gnocchi were excellent but make it 5 shrimp next time. (Plates looks better with odd numbers). We had very nice calamari as an app but garnish the plate guys! Just Fried calamari and sauce on a plate That’s it. Good thing it was awesome.

    We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my mom, the Fettuccini Alfredo was so creamy and delicious, the penne pasta with Italian sausage was so flavorful. The sausage pizza was really great, loved the sausage! The ceprese salad and cesar salads were extremely fresh and you could taste all of the flavors, one of the best we have had. The tiramisu was light and made to perfection and rest of the desserts were wonderful! Our waiter was so friendly and so on point with his suggestions. The waiter and servers were so friendly! The ambience felt like a little taste of Italy! Definitely a gem on Mill Plain!

    We were seated immediately on arrival. The restaurant was very busy and lively. Parking was available in the lot out front. Our server was busy but found the time to be present and helpful with menu discussion. She was knowledgeable on the menu and a wine selection. We had the Arancini and we both loved it. The quince butter with the Focaccia was quite tasty. We both had the Endive salad and Penne & sausage. This was our 2nd visit and there was marked improvement. The Endive salad still needs more gorgonzola cheese taste. Overall we enjoyed our dinner and will definitely return. We would recommend it to friends

    This place was receommended to us, so it was our first time. We went on a Thursday evening around 6PM and we got seated right away. The dining room was 50%-75% full, which is a good sign on a week night. The food tasted great, however, the portion size was a little smaller than expected. Our server, Gabriela, was outstanding! She was very polite, engaging, knowledgeable, and conscientious. We will definitely return to try another dish. .

    Service was perfect with our anniversary reservation. Seated and offered a cocktail that was great. We both a had a cocktail and ordered a bottle of wine for our dinner. The apps were very good. We had the clams and they were one that we will have again. Dinner was excellent and served appropriately timed with our appetizer. We will definitely return to this, our now fave Italian restaurant.

    We made a same day reservation; we were seated after a 2-3 minutes. It took several minutes for our server (Seth) to show up. The wine list was not readable because of the print. Then they were out of Arancini, so we went straight to salads. Mine was the Endive, could have been much tastier if it had some Gorgonzola or other cheese. My Penne and Sausage was just OK, nice portion but just OK. My wife had the Panzanella salad, it was also just so-so, it actually had croutons instead of bread. She also had the Bucatini with beef ragu, the flavors were excellent and a good-sized portion. Parking was good in the shopping center lot. We will go back again after some of the new restaurant issues are fixed, although I wouldn't recommend to a friend yet.

    We reserved a table on Open Table and when we arrived the restaurant… that same evening… it was closed. My recommendation is to make sure the reservation app reflects the restaurant’s hours. In fairness, we don’t really know if the food, service, ambience, etc was good because we have never actually eaten there. However this rating system requires a response on each element to register.

    I love the fact that the menu is minimal during lunch time. It’s very easy to pick and decide. Sometimes having a small lunch menu helps. Also, the serving is a good amount! I didn’t have any leftovers which is nice.

    It is wonderful to have another eating experience in Vancouver. The service was exceptional and very friendly. The menu is limited. We ordered appetizers, Caesar salad and dinner items of steak, pork and pasta. Three of the 5 guests had a glass of wine or one cocktail each. The portion was tiny and our bill with gratuity was $360.

    The food was like eating at Olive Garden on nicer plates. Very bland tasting ..nothing special......I can cook better at home! Would not recommend it!

    Excellent local Italian bistro. A limited but well thought-out menu with some fine touches, like the antipasti arranchini. Extensive wine list and beer. Too noisy for fancy dining, but a cut above mere pizza joint.

    Portion sizes were very small for the price that they were, and it would seem very inconsistent on how things came to the table.

    Had a reservation for 4 people at 6pm. We weren’t seated until 6:30pm. Two of us ordered the linguini with clams. Both dishes were extremely salty. The dish was overpowered with the salt to the point that I could not finish the dish. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and another person had the penne. Their dishes were tasty; just avoid the salt bomb that is part of the linguini w clams. Unsure if we will eat here again.

    We read other reviews so knew what to expect. Industrial vibe so it is very noisy. It is a small space & they’ve done well to maximize it for number of tables. Not a place for walkers or wheelchairs. Service was excellent. Food was very good. The serving sizes are what we should be eating - not super sized so at first it seems not enough food but the 4 of us were full - not over stuffed as with many restaurant meals. After our meals were served to the 4 of us we ordered 2 of the focaccia bread app at $8 each because no bread comes with any of the meals. Italian dinner needs bread we thought. Each plate had 4 thin pieces of bread accompanied by 2 spreads. Wow! Best part of meal! We’ll return to try their pizza.

    The pasta was delicious! The serving sizes were a little inconsistent. Myself and another person in my party ordered the same dish but our serving sizes looked quite different. The other person in our party had a very large portion compared to ours. She had the orecchiette and we had the penne. The Caesar salad was very good. The rest of my party loved their cocktails. Service was fairly slow, but it was a bustling evening so I assume the kitchen was just really busy. I will definitely give it another try.

    I love this new restaurant. From the cocktails, to the appetizers, entrees are delicious and the dessert was divine. So glad this gem is open and we have a wonderful choice for Italian food. I just went to Italy and this restaurant measures up to Italy.

    How do you run out of bread??? C’mon, it’s a staple …. Started with the clams, which in themselves were excellent, but we were informed they had ran out of bread (and this was only 7:30!). That cost you a star, soaking up the broth with a crust is a highlight …. Well, could have been anyway. Gnocchi was excellent…. But the wine list could use a little help. Started with a white tasting to go with the clams, not so good. Went with just a Chianti to go with the main, it was “harmless and unassuming”. I will go back, the price is reasonable and there is such a low bar for Italian competition in the ‘Couve (there are only two I would give 5 stars). So, make more bread than you need (really? Flour is cheap…), and take a second look at your wine list. I’ll write again after the next trip …
