I brought my mother and sister in-law there and they are both very happy with everything in the restaurant. Food was beautifully presented. My fish was grilled to perfection and my veggi was a combination of a number of ingredients deliciously cooked together. I can see the sincerity in their goal to prepare a great dish for their customers. My husband and my s-i-l would like their braised short ribs to be more tastier and juicer though. Portion was generous. I can go back any time and have recommended to friends many times already.

The experience is always enjoyable, price for the meal is phenomenal on Tuesday. Service is sometimes obsolete, hard to get drinks or refills, seems to be a repeat pattern from past experiences, but not the worst.

Did a great job of handling allergies, and served yummy food in short order. Had no problems letting us loiter and finish our bottle of wine. Great prices on Tuesday.

I ordered the Linguine Vongole and brussel sprouts. Felt like our server could have been a little more attentive to our table. I understand that the restaurant was busy, but would have appreciated being checked up sooner after our food arrived. The food was really good, but one thing that I didn't like about the pasta was that there was only one clam, and it was extremely sandy. To the point where I couldn't eat it, and it really irritated my teeth.

I would recommend Trattoria for a drink or two. They've got a great virgin drink menu. BUT when it comes to their food, I believe there are better options out there for the price. If you're craving pastas, there are diffidently better pasta options in Burnaby. We were placed in a small area that had 3 parties going on and so it was way too noisy to really hear one another at the table. I also wasn't impressed that I can see the plate wiping marks on my plate of pasta.

We have been to Trattoria before (2018) and the food was much better (this was on a tuesday - one of their busiest days). But this time we came in on a friday and the food lacked seasoning and was much a much smaller portion size than what we previously had. The calamari was so salty, and the truffle spaghetti and beef tenderloin where all under seasoned. The server was not engaging either. She did have an issue with the table beside us that became an argument which made the experience poor as well. The waitress had brought up the issue again lightly to that table which caused more comments made. We had also never been refilled for water and I had to ask someone who served food to refill it for us. Also we had waited to pay for quite some time. At the end of the night, when we were leaving, we noticed the waitress was behind the bar on her phone. This is not okay especially if her tables were not being looked after properly. I sadly will not recommend to come here due to this experience.

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.
