Pasta and prosciutto are very good. Missed the mussels order. When the dish came finally, it is over cooked.

Eating in a plastic tent with no ventilation wasn't what we expected. The food was excellent. Our waiter was poorly trained and certainly didn't add to our enjoyment of the evening.

Made a reservation at Robba da Matti for my partner's birthday, and we had an amazing time. We ordered the date night deal which included two antipasti, two pasta dishes, a bottle of wine and two desserts for $125 - everything was delicious and we were happy that there were so many veggie and pescatarian options. The hidden patio was beautiful. Such an underrated gem in the West End! Also shoutout to our lovely server Kelly who provided the best service we've had at a restaurant in a long time. Can't wait to go back to try the brunch menu!

It's nice service which was a free dessert for the late coming main course. And the food was delicious in a breathtaking green place.

Service started with the owners daughter who we thought was are server. The changes a number of times. We were forgotten about constantly. It’s clear they has inexperienced people working. Food was awful. To be fair my daughter thought her was fantastic but the other two pastas were not good at all. Mine was pasta with meat sauce, yet no sauce!! My wife ordered gnocchi which tasted like the packaged variety. Hers had sauce just no flavor.
$120.00 bill at the end for a meal I easily would’ve avoided had I known. There are plenty of better restaurants in the city.
Had to wait for ever to pay the bill. Finally stopped someone who got someone to have someone bring over the bill. He was not cordial or pleasant at all.
I see fundamental problems!
-Patio is huge. All the attention was paid there
-inexperienced kitchen and front of house
-low quality ingredients at the bar
-no understanding how to create an experience for us on Father’s Day. 28-30 dollar pasta can be anywhere. The question is why come here? No competitive advantage at all. Three location clearly had them this with staff as they try to reconvene post covid.
Reduce you tables and get the owner in the kitchen if you can’t be on brand!!

Great location, like a little gem in the west end. The quality of the food was outstanding. The owner (Matti) is really passionate about what he does, and you can tell by the attention to detail and the care he puts into serving his clients. I am Italian, and I highly recommend this place.

The service was great as a first off. I arrived a bit earlier than my date and the server was friendly and attentive without making it feel like I needed to sort ordering things. The patio ambience was really nice too, especially as it got darker and was lit up.

Unfortunately I thought the food was disappointing. My main was the ravioli, which imo is a bit too tomatoey. My dessert was creme brulee and the sugar was over thick and crunchy and the custard was too thick and fairly bland. I only say that because I make creme brulee myself, and I would have expected the same, or obviously, better than my baking in a restaurant, but certainly not inferior to it.

Waitress was nice but she brought me the wrong drink, appetizer and main. The asked if I wanted another drink on the house, but since I was driving I said no. Thought she would comp the drink I already ordered but she didn’t comp anything.

Beautifully quiet and a special eatery! Food we had was amazing, servers were super kind and being the only 2 patrons there as they had just opened, was lovely. The restaurants decor is cozy and surrounded with greanery, perfect for those celebrating a special occasion. Highly recommend and hope to be back here again!

The waiter was welcoming and enthusiastic about us having a wonderful experience. They were having technical problems with the sound system, so the ambiance that music brings was missing. The food was very yummy; although the gnocchi was not as tasty as our last visit, the dishes were obviously made with care and attention.

We like this restaurant for its food and location, usually went to the one in Yaletown, but really loved the experience at West End today while celebrating our wedding anniversary with a couple of friends. We’re extremely happy with our server Lisia (pardon for the spelling 🙏🏼) who really made our evening great. Keep it up! ;)
