Had great dinner with friends to celebrate girl friend’s birthday. Like how server works with us for choosing our food and energetic attitude made our nights. Recommended for sure.

It was a beautiful summers evening so it was nice to be able to sit outside. We have dined at Trattoria several times, and I decided to try something different from the pasta for a change. The meal was excellent.

We brought American friends to that restaurant because the meatball spaghetti with truffle sauce was excellent which they were engaged to. They enjoyed every moment of dining there at the excellent atmosphere.

I loved the service and the staff who were knowledgeable and friendly but unfortunately I found the food very salty for my family's taste buds. (We got a few different pastas and all seemed too salty)

We waited for 15 min for a server to greet us and when she finally showed up, we expressed our feelings for having to sit here for too long. Her response was “I am busy and I have other things to do” and funny thing is there was 3 tables in total
We ordered a panne Alfredo for our 6 years old, it arrived within 3-5 min and not cooked. No one quality checked with us and finally when the bill came, we let our server know and she said that she will take it off the bill, like we cared not pay and leave
Horrible experience

I loved trattoria, $13 pasta on Tuesdays can’t be beat, $4 wine, $4 Caesar salad and $4 tiramisu! Everything tasted so great and just because it was discounted did not mean discount in flavour or size! Our server was so attentive and wonderful, I will be definitely back.

2nd visit... definitely better than our horrible first experience. Our server took the time to go over the menu, and was very patient with us. Great time to visit pasta Tuesday with happy hour. The food tasted superb. Thank you for giving us a better service the second time around.

I went there two years ago and had bad experience. I wanted to give them a second chance and it was a mistake. Food portions was small and not tasty. Service was not great but acceptable. They price themselves above earls/cactus level, then I expect better than earls/cactus service and food level. The host at earls at least do not dress in jeans. I do not recommend anyone to go there and I will not go back anymore.

Spectacular appetizers. I had the clams/mussels and my wife the meatballs and both were shareable and really done to perfection. The clams and mussels had an excellent fennell garnish with pork sausage which complimented it nicely. The baked meatballs had a bit of a nice kick and with the Parmesan polenta were supreme. For the entree I had the veal and penne and she had the braised rib and penne and both were outstanding. One small point is the penne could have used another minute in the water and needed a bit more sauce but that is really nitpicking it. Two terrific pieces of veal done to perfection. My wife's braised short rib was tender and tasty and a real treat. It would be interesting to learn how long it is actually braised for but is was perfect. I had room for desert and had their Salted Caramel Budino and to say it was good is a massive understatement - it was supreme. Great service and very good value with outstanding food and their attention to detail is very clear.

We were a family of 10 ranging from youngest being 12 years old to grand parents in their 80's out celebrating birthday over pasta Tuesday. Our server Claire, was very patient in accommodating and addressing the needs of the youngsters (there were 5 between ages of 12-18). The food was delicious and fabulous as always. We had a bit of trouble accessing the WIFI to which the manager went out of his way to resolve. And being that we were celebrating a birthday, the complimentary tiramisu was very well received. We will definitely be coming back.

Great food, great service, great wine. Location is convenient. The brussel sprouts is a MUST...i have converted many brussel sprout haters! Every dish (and wine) ive tried has been delicious. Noise level is usually high unless you go early.

Would have preferred for our appetizer platter to not come all the the same time as our pasta and meat platters, I would have expected some stages for each course versus all at once. Made for our food getting cold before being able to fully enjoy them. Didn’t want to make a big deal since it was Father’s Day and didn’t want to spoil it for my family, but it was annoying. Been to other Trattoria locations and it has never been a problem before, odd.

It took us half an hour or more to get our food and the table who was seated after us got their food before we did. It didn't make sense. The place wasn't even packed.

No fault of the business, the location of being at Kingsway and Willingdon really kills the ambience when sitting outside, the inside is always fantastic but when the suns out it’s nice to enjoy the weather! The food as usual is fantastic.

Tratt Tuesday is a pasta lovers day to note on their calendar. Virtually all the pasta selections are delicious. The hardest part of the evening is which to choose. The servers are very friendly and knowledgeable on what you wish to pair it with. My experience with Trattoria Italian Kitchen Burnaby has always been a delight.

Food was great but the value of the price is too much. Serving wise, it was small especially the tenderloin steak that we ordered.
