Absolutely beautiful restaurant, brought my girlfriend for her birthday and was pleasantly surprised at how a smaller restaurant could make me feel like I was at home. Watching the chefs cook fresh food that tasted amazing was the cherry on top of this great dinner

Excellent food, attentive friendly service and a quiet, heated patio. The perfect spot for an intimate unpretentious dinner.

This is my second or third time here. I love it everysingle time! My friend and I got the date night menu and we both ordered the same seafood pasta. The only down fall is the waiter accidently put in the wrong pasta dish for one of us, and the waitress brought us side plates for us to share the pasta until the other one is ready. I didn’t like how it was done. The pasta got cold when it was sitting in the middle of the table; I like to eat the pasta when it’s nice and hot and all to myself. Besides that overall experience was great! The date night menu is definetly worth the value.

Authentic Italian pastas! The spaghetti is done al dente and reminds me of our vacation in Rome. The carbonara and spaghetti alle vongole is delicious. For my birthday, they comped me a tiramisu. The food can take a little while to come, but well worth the wait.

After a small wait for service at our table (it was quite busy), everything went wonderfully. And due to that, the restaurant comped our desserts. Food was delicious as always, and 2 friends who had never been before will be back. Good job, Robba da Matti!

Food was great - the restaurant lacked ambiance - large bright globe lights - had to ask them to turn down the lights a bit - I think since it is so small there goal is to get you in and out - we paid the bill and were asked to leave they needed the table - the table could use candles or little vase of flowers - and get rid of those big globe lights...

Very small dining area. Tables are very close to one another. Luckily we were seated next to a couple that loved conversation. Food was good, service was good. Unfortunately, the whole experience was just okay but not great. This is a fantastic area for a restaurant to thrive. I hope they read this so can come back and have a better experience. They have a lot of potential.

Terrible is all I have to say ! I will not recommend anyone to this place ! Oh and if you do decide to eat here don’t ask for parmigiana cheese cus the chef will reject your request and won’t serve you anymore food ! They told us the kitchen was closed and won’t be able to make us anything else at 9:20pm when they close at 10pm ! I will never go back to this restaurant ever!

This is my second time coming to this restaurant and it is still just as amazing as I first remembered it to be. It has a very "mom and pop" feel in a quaint restaurant in busy Yaletown. The food is very straight to point and delicious. This restaurant is a must for you if you are looking true pasta in downtown.

Service wasn’t the best when we went to the restaurant. We ordered a drink that we didn’t like but the server wasn’t helpful with exchanging the drink and said you have to pay for it. Usually a decent restaurant would have been more accommodating. However, the server did get my note about the birthday celebration and brought out an amazing tiramisu. Food was excellent. Just not impressed with our service.

The restaurant is small and quaint, reservations on weekends is a must if you don’t want to wait.

My husband and I were seated at last table in the restaurant right beside the door to the patio. Not the best seat in the house but it was alright just a bit tight for space.

We had 2 glasses of champagne to start, followed by a cocktail each to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to go for the date night menu which included 2 antipasti, 2 mains, 2 desserts and a bottle of wine (red or white) for $122 CAD. You get complimentary bread and olives to start.

We chose: burrata caprese and beef carpaccio to start followed by the Roche Roche pasta and seafood pasta. For dessert we chose pana cotta and tiramisu. All the food was delicious, portions were good and the wine (red) was also good. We would eat here again for sure. Service was also great...not in your face but friendly. A true gem in the heart of Yaletown for Italian food! Mangia!!!

The food was incredible. We enjoyed every bite. The food tasted so fresh and authentic. My only slight complaint is that this is a very small restaurant, and they position the 2-seater tables within 6 inches of each other. So, it's like you are eating and hearing strangers conversation. I don't think this can be helped, but probaby is good to know before hand.

The menu is not extensive but everything we have tried at this restaurant has been wonderful. Fresh, homemade pasta with tasty sauces, crispy bruschetta and perfectly prepared risotto. They have a lovely little patio that is perfect for a nice evening. The service was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely return.

The food was very delicious! We got the Burrata Caprese, Osso Buco & Risotto, and the Gnocchi Ai Quatro Formaggi and finished it all. Our server was pleasant and accommodating, and everything came on time. Also delicious Prosecco Sangria! The patio's a bit small but we were sat very comfortably at out table : )

Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The food is authentic without being pretentious and the cocktails were unique and reasonably priced. Our server, Yousef, made our evening with his charming and professional manner. Looking forward to our next visit!

Overall solid experience. Shaky first few minutes with a weird greeting and no menus for a few minutes. Burrata w/ prosciutto and the salad w/ pine nuts was great and felt super authentic. The Vongole was pretty good, pasta cooked well but the balance of spice, garlic and wine was off. The spice kind of just overwhelmed.

Service and ambiance were great. Lively Yaletown patio.

Bruschetta was delicious.

The pasta was quite good - I had the primavera with a nice tangy basil tomato sauce and yummy burrata cheese.

Delicious Italian food! Wonderful homemade pasta, great service and nice patio. We came for our anniversary and they gave us free champagne to celebrate- very thoughtful. We would highly recommend it, especially the patio seating (the inside looked quite small).
