We decided to go for a late bite and go for appies, which was caesar salad, caprese salad, and crab cakes.
All three items were great, the crab cakes are really flavourful, with a little bit of spice to them. It's a definite must to order, one of the best crab cakes that we have ever experienced.
The service is amazing, Piva really caters to the customer, and makes you feel really special the moment you step into their beautiful decor.
It's nice to have something really new and modern in the New Westminster area, we came from Port Moody to enjoy a meal at Piva, we plan on being a regular from here on in.
One of the finest restaurants I’ve been to. Food is excellent. Some of the choices from the menu are first-rate and original. The service is also outstanding! Not to mention the ambience. Would recommend... to everyone :)
We have enjoyed the food on several visits, however the room is very noisy, and there is little atmosphere...would definitely not return for any kind of an intimate dinner.
Love Piva. The duck/fig pizza is light and delicious. The Italian wine selection is substantial. The servers and GMs are very attentive and lovely. A great place to go for an inexpensive (or not, depending on your wine choice!) evening!
The servers were nice and the food was pretty good. I would come back here for special occasions.
The food, atmosphere and service were phenomenal. The manager, Christopher, made sure we were enjoying our experience. We've already made our next reservation. We can't wait for when their patio opens!
The Caprese salad and lemon tart were exceptional. The mains were ok. The sorbet was absolutely disappointing. Sorbet is supposed to taste tart and flavourful. Just tasted like ice water. The wines were good. Boring cocktails intended to be cutting edge I think, but not actually tasty
Get the carbonara. Good food though a bit pricey compared to other similar restaurants in Vancouver. Very good service and nice atmosphere
Lovely restaurant, very good food and great location.
Food and service were phenomenal we will be back
Service and food are fantastic. Great spot and would attend again.
Food and wine list is amazing and Atmosphere is amazing
Excellent food and great atmosphere, friendly staff. Nice to have this in New Westminster. We will be back and tell colleagues and friends.
Our server was really good & the food we ordered were tasty (with the exception of the French fries which came with the hangar steak/too soggy). We told our server we had a movie to catch so our food came in a timely manner so we appreciated that ✅
Was really excited to try it out. Great ambiance and decor, unfortunately the food did fall a bit short. It was, Okay. We both had lamb, one was a Lamb Shank the other was Lamb Risotto. The shank, to be fair was good, it was the little amount that you get for that price was shocking. The risotto was undercooked. It was too crisp, and not creamy.
Fantastic food and wine pairings, great atmosphere and service.
Amazing ambiance, great staff, the Moscato was a nice touch
The food was very good and the service was friendly and efficient. One of the few restaurants where the waiter does not remove the dishes of people who may have finished before others at the table (which I find to be rude).
Service was very good. Food was good, but I expected more, given the swankiness and prices.
second visit even better than my first this was dinner with a client and a friend. service was outstanding had a great bottle of wine from check mate (ok it was 2 bottles) Loved the spaghetti Bolognese, trio of deserts was absolutely delicious
Unreal food, great wine, nice ambiance. We will be back over and over...
Now my favourite restaurant in New Westminster. Terrific food, ambiance, and outstanding service (and no one is paying me to say this!). The wine list contains a lot of high quality local vintages.
As always... delicious. The lamb with gnocchi is the perfect meal!
We were warmly greeted at the door. The service was friendly and quite efficient. We ordered the linguine carbonara and it was really tasty. We also shared the calamari appie, which had a nice spicy kick. Overall, great place to dine and nice addition to the neighbourhood.
We had such a good time . The food was amazing . Their pasta is freshly made and gluten-free and soooo tasty! Great service , very friendly ☺️
Was not greeted by a server for 15 minutes so we left
Piva is a welcome addition to finer dining in New West! Good job!
Piva continues to impress with its lunch menu. My other visit have been for dinner. Same delicious food and professional service. Only comment would be to offer a couple 3-course set lunches in addition to the current lunch menu. Similar to Market and other downtown lunch spots. Thanks again to Mark - who personally checks all is well with each guest - and the outstanding Piva team for a great lunch XP close to home.
Food was really really good. Portions were good. Appetizers were slightly better than the entrees. Service was impeccable. Nice rom but s bit loud due to the open concept and hard surfaces everywhere.
Treated like royalty from the start.
Food was delicious. Would recommend to everyone
We were really looking forward to dining in this restaurant because of all the great reviews. The food was good. The service could have been better. At one point, I thought she had forgotten we ordered a martini which was served in an old fashion champagne glass at room temperature. The bartender should know how to serve a martini. The water was also served at room temperature. The restaurant, itself, had a very trendy look which was nice.
I would probably go back again but they do need to improve on the points I raised.
A real personable approach from the management staff that was really appreciated. Great ambiance and decent service that is getting better every time I visit. Good pricing, lovely staff.
I took my daughter for her 35th Birthday. The service was exceptional and food was fabulous. Chris, the maître d'and sommelier, came to our table to ensure that our experience was a good one.
I will definitely be back!
Great food and personalized service. Have already been back and looking forward to my next visit soon
We had a wonderful dining experience at PIVA
Food was great, atmosphere amazing and service superb !
Even the biggest and most notorious complainer in our group was charmed with this restaurant.
We all loved our time at PIVA and will be going there again soon!
Great food and table service however it took a long time for the food to arrive. Kitchen needs to speed up for lunch service.
I picked this new place to try in the neighbourhood and booked it through Open Table. I left a note during my booking to ask if the restaurant does anything special for a birthday celebrant (free dessert or something like that) I did not hear back from them through email or phone call, so I wasn't sure if it will happen or not. Nothing was also mentioned when we arrived at the restaurant. But to my surprise, at the end of our meal, our server brought out a gorgeous plate of chocolate brownie with a candle and nicely decorated. So we were pleased with that and the manager even came to check on us and acknowledged they got our message. The overall service was good. The food was generally good. We liked the arancini, duck and linguine carbonara. Duck was cooked perfectly and linguine was not too salty, which I had past experiences of being too salty in other places. We also ordered the fig and duck pizza but found it to be too sweet and there was too much fig as the base. It is a fancier and nicer place, so do expect to pay more and portions are average. Not too small nor too big. Will definitely be back for special occasions!
Overall, good experience. I felt like the table was too small for four people as we struggled to move around our plates. Also, they were short hand on waiter I suppose. Our wines were poured regularly. Also, I ordered lamb. The brussel sprouts were over fried.
I took my bf to Piva for his birthday and we had an amazing experience. We were greeted warmly as soon as we walked in, and our table was already ready for us once we arrived. The atmosphere was wonderful and warm with noise of other satisfied patrons. Our waiter was with us within maybe a minute or two of us sitting down - which was amazing considering how busy it was (you know how crazy a Saturday night at 7pm can be) and he was friendly and welcoming, going so far as to formally introduce himself. Our drinks came fast for a busy Saturday night which is always a good point in my book. It is wonderful to see a restaurant work so well under high volume times. We even met the front of house manager who was going around making sure the patrons were well taken care of. All the staff was friendly and warm. The food was glorious. We started with Carpaccio and Arancini - which were perfect. There was a good amount of time between appetizers and entrees - which is always a sign of a perfectly timed kitchen. Our mains were the Fettuccine and the Linguini - which were both divine. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce to pasta ratio was on point. During our dinner we ordered a couple drinks which were well balanced and smooth in taste. For dessert we ordered the Flourless chocolate cake, which capped off the night wonderfully. We cannot wait to go back and sample more of what the menu has to offer.
The hostess was friendly and inviting the waitress was great making sure our needs were met and the food was awesome. We will be Back!
