    We haven't been to the restaurant since the pandemic hit. We were delightfully pleased at the quality and servings size of our order. Pasta was cooked perfectly, and the service was excellent.

    Service was terrible. The restaurant had 1 server for all the tables. Owners sat at the front of the restaurant doing nothing to help the poor server. It was not his fault. The mushroom ravioli was warm at best and nothing special. Could have made it myself from frozen ravioli and sauce from a jar. Felt like I was in a restaurant styled in the 80’s.

    We went for Afternoon English Tea which was advertised incorrectly in the newspaper. We knocked on the door as it didn't seem to be open. Finally, someone came only to inform us the TEA was only on Sat and Sunday. I observed the front entrance and table, are not very clean.

    The food was hit and miss, but cleanliness was terrible, which is especially bad during the coronavirus pandemic. Multiple times new plates were brought that still had sauce or soap on them in a very obvious way. They spilled water on my friend, spilled sauce from the ravioli on the table, and they squeeze the lemon on the carpaccio for you, but it was running down the server's fingers and just moments before they had been wiping their nose and face with that hand. If I recommended anything, it would be to get the mushroom ravioli for takeout only.

    The food was good and came in a timely manner. However after finishing dessert we waited over 25 minutes to get the bill. There needs to be additional help to either process the cheque or assist with making drinks.

    Food was terrible, the Arancini was still frozen in the center. They taste like they're just bought from Sysco or a restaurant supply. The pasta was extremely salty. It used to be good here but it's not worth it anymore.

    This was our first visit. We were there for a family dinner to memorialize an elder family member who had passed that morning. We were initially seated near a huge and extremely boisterous birthday party table. My partner wisely asked that we be moved further into the interior area of the dining room near the bar. That was a big improvement, though the noise level was still quite significant. That said, the service was delightful and the food quite good. I am ethnically half Italian and have spent lots of time in Italy, So I am quite knowledgeable about fine Italian cuisine and its many regional varieties. La Baia presents a luscious and well varied menu of appetizers, soups and salads, pasta dishes, and meat and seafood entrees. Everyone in our party of seven really enjoyed the meal and said they would gladly return. Most of us live locally and will have natural opportunities to gather there again. So in summary, this is a lovely place with food well above local average, friendly and attentive service, and pleasant decor. If you want a quiet environment though, you will need to be lucky to be there on a less busy night.

    I do not suggest ordering the cheese the cheese platter for 2. It was extremely tiny and not worth the price. The seafood cannoli was delicious however the portions were very small. My husband's prime rib was pretty much just fat. I was very disappointed.

    Our meal choice was very disappointing~Cannelloni had a pink sauce on it and meat filling was very bland. Pasta~very undercooked , returned and replaced with similar chewiness with no flavour to the minimal meat sauce. Quite a disappointment from previous years going there ~likely won’t return..

    The food is always good. I’ve eaten here numerous times over the years and the quality is always very good. Felt the service was a tad slow last night. That would be the only downside. Haven’t been in since they repainted but was nice to see a bit of updating to the decor. Interested in trying the tea on the weekend. Will certainly be back soon.

    Brought my mom here for her birthday. The atmosphere was so homey and warm and the service was spectacular. Unlike some places that are pushy for you to order the instant you sit down, our server’s pacing didn’t feel rushed / impatient which gave time for my family and I to catch up. The food is absolutely phenomenal. True authentic Italian food hands down and very fair pricing. To be honest, with a menu that good I wouldn’t mind throwing a couple bucks more for extras. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

    What a fantastic menu and location. Everyone in our party had a tough time picking their entre as we loved so many of the offerings. Lobster ravioli, bolognese, lasagna and vognole were what we settled on with fried calamari, carpaccio, and brunette for appetizers. The complimentary bread and oil/vinegar were delicious too. I asked my server to choose a pinot grigio for me to have with my dinner and was thrilled with the one she picked. Folonari will now be stocked in my wine fridge at home. The icing on the cake last night was the free parking!! Every other restaurant on the white rock strip was packed with no nearby parking. Not LA Baia though I've no idea why this gem wasn't busier. With food this good at really reasonable prices it should be far busier than it is. We will definitely be back.

    I have to say since the new owners the food quality and value as gone down. The portions are smaller, the prices are high, and the food quality itself is not what it used to be. My family and I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. Unfortunately I won't be going back any time soon, long wait for food as well. Mind you it was a busy night. Which is a shame because this restaurant used to be a White Rock culinary institution and the best italian in the city. But if they want to charge 5 star prices they are going to need to bring back the bigger portions and higher quality. Otherwise lower the price to reflect the current food.

    A group of 4 of us shared the Sunday special which was a “Family Platter” of about 5 courses. It was delicious and good value too. The chef took the time to come and chat with us, and the service was excellent. We highly recommend this terrific restaurant. Free parking along the side of the building.
