    Food very underwhelming. We ate here in the past and had a great experience but this time was not so great. Service felt rushed, food was average and very limited choice for vegetarians. Don’t think we will return.

    Service and food very good and would recommend to others. Major drawback was the noise level and our guests could not hear what we were saying and they set up another time to meet to chat as they had difficulty with this due to noise level.

    The food was so delicious - I highly recommend the platters as they give you the opportunity to try a nice variety of foods. Quite loud, but we did go on a Friday night so that was to be expected.

    Terrible food. Was going to eat dinner and only managed to order one appetizer it was that bad. The server asked while bringing the bill if the food was okay. I said it was okay, he went to manager and came back with “my manager says, pay what is fair”. What is that? Haha I’ve worked in the industry for years and have never heard of a restaurant ran that way. It was odd and made me uncomfortable. I paid the entire bill and left awkward... won’t be going back.

    Food was very good. Wild mushroom ravioli with truffle cream sauce & pine nuts was perfectly cooked and utterly delicious. The warm zeppole donuts stuffed with gianduje chocolate was great way to end the meal! Only negative was smoke & smells from the open kitchen lingered in my clothes, coat & hair. Yuck. Other than that, food was very good. Maybe, sit on the other side of the dining room. Highly recommend.

    We went for Valentine’s Day and the staff was very friendly. The food however was disappointing. For appetizer we had the bruschetta which was quite tasty. I ordered the tomato sauce pasta with olives and shrimp. My pasta tasted like a canned sauce and my partner’s lamb shank was very under seasoned and his risotto tasted burnt. The ambiance and staff was so friendly so it was a nice date but for the price I would not come back.

    It was Valentines Day and very busy. Special meal was a platter including lobster tail, veal chop, prawns, pasta. Veal chop was tough, whole platter was Luke warm at best. We have been to Trattoria many time and will go again many times because it is a favourite of our. This was the only poor experience we have there.

    We were four people— we had reservations. Arrived a couple of minutes early and our table was ready within a minute. We ordered appetizers, mains and desserts and everything was delicious. The ambiance was pleasant. The noise level at the beginning felt a big loud but not uncomfortable and seemed better by the time we started eating. Our seating was at 9:30pm so it may have had to do with the fact the restaurant was a bit less busy by then. Overall very good experience as we have come to expect from all our previous times at Trattoria.

    Our dinner was excellent. We shared a very good Caesar salad. My husband had veal saltimbocca and said it was one of the best. I had cannelloni. It was good but too much noodle around it. It was a lively neighborhood restaurant, a bit noisy but had a fun feel to it.

    Delicious and amazing value. Disappointments: Waited for a long time and had to flag the server after a long absence to get drink refills... And the one thing that will probably keep us away though, was the head chef yelling constantly at the top of his lungs announcing whatever dish was ready for pick up or at his kitchen staff. Extremely annoying, so loud we often couldn’t each other’s conversation with each other, and just constant disruption and interference with our experience to the point that we discussed how we should get on yelp about this. Really destroyed the ambiance, and what otherwise could have been a lovely evening.

    I would recommend this restaurant but NOT for or during Dine Out Vancouver. The food is mass produced so it lacks the personal touch that I am used to in this restaurant. It is very loud and the open style kitchen contributes largely to the sound pollution. Staff friendly and service good.

    Good place, but bad night. The Dine Out gnocchi was overcooked to the point of being mush, but the appetizer and dessert were okay. I also got a horribly painful stomachache shortly after eating, preventing me from enjoying the experience. Overall very disappointing, as I have been to Trattoria several times and always loved it. I hope this was just a fluke and not indicative of their future quality.

    We attended Trattoria for Dine Out Vancouver, and while the menu was only $25pp, it definitely wasn't worth it. The service we received was fine -our server was polite and welcoming at the beginning, but rarely checked in on us. However, the food was extremely sub-par. I had the gnocchi and my partner had the veal t-bone. My gnocchi was cooked to mush, with the pasta barely holding its shape (it was more like eating mashed potatoes than pasta). On the other hand, the veal t-bone was chewy and cooked inconsistently. Unfortunately, we were not able to bring these problems to the attention of our server as he did not check in on us until we were ready for the bill. All in all, I would not recommend Trattoria -for Dine Out at least.
