Food & service were excellent but we found table too small for 5 people. We were at a table meant for 4 people with chairs on each end. When the food came it was difficult to fit the shared plates on the table. We were also not very comfortable as it was tight on all sides.

Not a place to have pasta. The food lacked seasoning especially their signature meatball. When the pasta arrived, it was cold. Seemed like it had been sitting around for awhile. The service could have been better; our water glasses were not even refilled. The best part of the meal was our cocktail-limoncello and peach mojito. I would not recommend this place. It seems like it has gone downhill since they opened a few years ago. Very disappointing as we have been there several times in the past and it has progressively gotten worse.

We had a great dinner starting with a well seasoned tender meatball, followed by a creamy smoked salmon radiatori which was great with a side of bread. The tomato caprese salad was fresh with very good tasting tomatoes, fresh basil, and some soft freshly made burrata. The chaucuterie platter was a bit thin with only two thin slices each of pancetta and salami three small half inch cubes of a local blue and three thin 1/2 slices of a local gouda and some toasted naan points. Reliable good tasting pasta, too bad the one in West Vancouver suffers from inconsistent service, food quality, and a reputation of such.

Not the greatest. Purchased a dinner special for 2 and it was a real discount meal - small and not very good overall. We both felt kind of sick after. Tried here a few times, but don't think we will return.

I think my recent experience is not representative of the restaurant as I have had better food there before. However, this was Dine Out, and the Veal Schnitzel we ordered tasted warmed over; the way meat gets tough and soggy. The appetizers, on the other hand were fresh and good, though the burrata portion felt a bit skimpy compared to how I have had it in other restaurants. I will however go back and order from the a la carte menu, and hope to regain my earlier enthusiasm for this venue.

The food was good but not memorable. Our party had pasta, veal and salmon. The pasta was cooked perfectly but we all felt the dishes were a little over salted and although good not particularly memorable. For the price point we were expecting more. The bufala and tomato salad was the highlight. Very nice.

We fully enjoyed our meal. We had used a promotional offer for a 3 course meal. We started with the buratta and prosciutto with pesto and seasonal bread. Absolutely delicious. We followed that with a platter for two with the (signature) meat balls (aptly named) and spaghetti, tiger prawns, and chicken picante with roasted seasonal vegetables. We ate every bite as all components were tasty. Particularly enjoyed the meat balls and roasted Brussels sprouts. Tiramisu for desert was good. Definitely would recommend.

Great food, nice environment, decent ambient noise volume, relatively easy parking.
Chair was a little hard after 2 hours straight, but quite a minor issue. Staff / waitresses were nice, cheerful, helpful.

We had dinner with good friends on Wine Wednesday last week. The restaurant was extremely loud, so much so, that we couldn't have a conversation until the noisy table beside us left. Our server Greg, was very attentive, and service was great. The lamb shank, salmon, and risotto of the day were excellent. Unfortunately, the chicken parmigiano was burnt. We didn't complain, as we were entertaining friends, however the kitchen should have noticed the blackened edges, and burnt cheese before plating. We are frequent diners at Trattoria, and were disappointed in the lack of attention to detail.

The service was outstanding. Multiple servers kept appearing just at the right time to take our orders for food and wine, then serving the appetizer, mains and dessert and refilling our wine glasses right on cue. The bruschetta sampler is really a flatbread with different toppings, but very delicious. I had the chicken masala with Wild mushrooms. The chicken itself was cooked to perfection however I found the mushrooms very salty and couldn't finish them. With an adjustment to the seasoning it could be a great dish. We finished our meal with tiramisu which was divine!

Really liked the fact that Tuesday nights are half price on pizzas and Wednesday nights are half price on bottles of wine. Delicious pizzas and meatball dishes are yummy. Very close to the 5th avenue theatre. Very happy that the new management has a more sensitive ear with regards to noise level and plays light jazz and quieter music at the dinner hour. It is nice when you can go out for a great dinner and enjoy conversation as well.

Service was excellent. Wine deal on Wednesday great value. Crammed in table for 2 - had the servers rear end in our face every time they served the other table. Veal Marsala had no flavour. Disappointed this time - other times has been good, but I don't find the food excellent or as good as the Italian Kitchen. Even Novo around the corner has better taste, but it is very lacking in other areas too.

Very disappointed. Selected this restaurant based upon reviews and will say that it was not anywhere as good as I had anticipated (based upon the reviews). The food was quite mediocre in my opinion. My wife and I had veal and we were both disappointed. It was chewy and the presentation was simply a 'mess'. It came with potatoes and sprouts but it was all in one big heap, mixed together and covered with a fairly bland marsala sauce. My guests had pasta and both of them gave up halfway through their meal. I'm afraid I would be unable to recommend this to anyone.
