This was our first time, and was pleasantly surprised at the ambience and quality of food and wine. We definitely will be back and recommend to our friends
This was our first dining experience at Piva. It has a modern, stylish decor, and great ambiance. Although it has the look of fine dining restaurant, it is actually quite suitable for casual dining. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent, and the service was friendly. The food was tasty and fresh. The pasta and meat were expertly cooked.
The great part is that the prices are reasonable, for what is perhaps the best or second best restaurant in New West.
Great atmosphere.. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Arancini appetizer was delicious !!! Service was well-timed and friendly .
Wanted to have a restaurant near to the movie theatre (across the street) and decided to Piva a try. Great spot to have a delicious meal and the staff were accommodating to our time restraints. Tried wonderful hand-crafted cocktails and the meal was delicious. Not the cheapest place in town but worth the price.
Our waiter Tony was outstanding. Very friendly and personable. Recommended a great Italian wine. Made us a spanish coffee with ricotta cream because whipping cream ran out. It was very special. Really enjoyed the evening.
The antipasto platter was good but the cheese seeemed like it was cut up in cubes and left out to dry.
Great experience! Very good service and knowlegable staff. Food was tasty and fun cocktails. Seating/tables were a little cumbersome.
Food was amazing. Manager is great.
WOW!!! Amazing experience. This was our first time at Piva and we will DEFINITELY be back! Delicious food and fantastic customer service. We are blown away- best service we’ve had in a very long time!!
I've been to Piva twice in recent weeks. Both occasions were to celebrate special birthdays and we were not disappointed. The service is outstanding -- attentive without being instrusive, and lovely and gracious staff with warm smiles and a good sense of humour. They were very accommodating with our food requests. The waiter remembered me on the second visit.
The food is delicious, innovative and served with appropriate portions. The bright setting with big windows gives the restaurant a cheerful and modern ambiance. The fact that you are steps away from the beautiful New Westminster waterfront is a huge plus. The bathrooms are clean and modern, and the underground parking in the Anvil Centre is reasonable priced.
Piva is a delightful gem in New Westminster!
Very pleasant staff from beginning to end. Food was tasty but could have been more pasta per serving. Good for families too.
Our pasta dishes were delicious and I liked how we could order half for lunch.
I give Piva an average rating since my party really enjoyed the décor and ambiance, the service, the cocktails and our starter (the polenta fries were really nice - super crispy, light and flavourful!), but we were generally underwhelmed by our mains. My friend got the duck & fig pizza, which for a thin-crust pizza was super stiff-crusted. It wasn't terribly flavourful, either. I had the linguine carbonara which had great potential, but there was a bit too much going on, and there was too much sauce - the poached egg on top of the pasta would have been plenty to give the whole dish a beautiful saucy texture, but the pasta already seemed to be tossed in a sauce, which made it too much. I like that they use guanciale, as the best carbonara I've had is made with it, but they could stand to simplify this already rich dish, back to its more basic elements - the egg, the parmIggiano, and the guanciale. The verde sauce didn't really add anything. My husband had Nonno's pasta, which had a good amount of kick, for the spice seekers. It was pretty good, but not really anything outstanding. We may go back, as overall it wasn't bad, just not great. In my opinion, there are better Italian places around. I'd probably recommend Trattoria over Piva.
The food was good and the service we had was outstanding. Definitely would love to come again.
Awesome experience, family in town for the long weekend. The dining experience was exceptional. Nicole our server went the extra distance for a one of a kind holiday experience. The best place to eat in New West hands down!
It's wonderful to have a restaurant like this in New West. We felt like we were dining out in Vancouver for a birthday dinner; but, we were only 5 minutes from home which saved us a few dollars on babysitting. Our server was fabulous and showed the perfect amount of attentiveness (the door staff seemed a little less experienced and knowledgeable though). The wines were great - we noticed that there was a nice balance of local BC and select Italian wines. The food was tasty. This will be our go to spot for any special occasion dinner.
New Westminster now has a upscale beautiful venue to dine.
Deco excellent.Enjoyed butter nut squash and kale soup
Yes I would return
Every time I bring friends and family to Piva we are thrilled by the dedicated service and incredible food.
We had the lamb and the duck this visit and both were impeccable and served with unique sides. Love love love Piva. 💜
Was with my Nephew we had Tony as our waiter he is a wonderful server definitely make your evening a great experience.
We definitely enjoy our meals, try their Cornish Hen ,be prepared for a large portion.
Will be booking for a party this weekend.
It was our first time at Piva, it was very busy but we had reservations so no problems there. The decor is very cool and I would say it’s a fun atmosphere. The tables are sandwiched in very tightly so there is some issues with space but all in all not bad. I ordered an Old Fashion and it was easily top 3 Old Fashions I’ve ever had. The food was also very tasty. Good quality ingredients and very good presentation. The one problem I had was the $22 price tag for a very small portion of Spaghetti. There is no bread to start off with so an appetizer would definitely be needed in the future. I don’t expect a giant mound of pasta but the portion I got was quite small and left me hungry at the end of the meal. The only other complaint was our waitress seemed to be more focused on talking to her coworkers then taking care of her section. It took 15mins to get a dessert menu after requesting it. She never asked if we would like another cocktail and after our whole tables had been cleared (by someone else) it took another 10mins to get the cheque. I’m not going to hold that against the restaurant though, as all the other staff was great. I really liked the fact that the Manager walked around from table to table and talked to the customers, very professional. Everyone enjoyed their meals and their cocktails very much. The food tasted great.
Ambience and service is great but the food and value was fair. The burrata wasn't that great but the staff were very friendly and the interior is beautiful. Great lighting for photos for all you foodies!
What an awesome experience! Friendly charismatic staff that make you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door (manager opened the door to welcome us) to the end of a brilliantly prepared meal; Food was EXCEPTIONAL! Nothing but kindness in this restaurant to every fine detail of our napkin being folded when we got up from the table to server wiping our table down between courses.
And to top the evening off; being walked to the door by our server and having the hostess open the door for us to end our night...whole new level of dining as been created in New Westminster.
Grazie Mille Piva! You are truly in a class of your own!
Good food, loved that there were lots of wines available by the glass, including a good selection of BC wines
Very Good. Well seasoned food. Staff attentive and polite.
The service, overall experience and of course the food is definitely worth the trip from Vancouver or anywhere for that matter. I'd encourage anyone who wants a fantastic experience to spend your money and time here! Christopher, the Maitre d' & Sommellier makes the night magical by pairing fantastic food with the right wine selection. Tony has been our waiter the 5 times we have been there and has been flawless. This is coming from a couple who experiences restaurants 3-4 times a week, this is one of the best places to go! Thank you Chris and Tony for making the difference!

Our server Hailey was awesome. Prompt welcome, great recommendations and attentive service.
The service was fabulous. Made our special day even more special. Our server Alex was wonderful!
As a local resident I've been wanting to try Piva since it opened and finally had the chance. I'd heard rave reviews about the spaghetti bolognese and we both agreed did not disappoint. It was excellent and was the perfect choice for a chilly rainy evening. The burrata salad was also excellent but could have been a bit more more robust for the price. Interestingly I happened to mention this to a friend who'd been the week before and it appeared that her portion was more substantial. The place was packed on a Thursday evening and the room was full of laughter and great energy. As others have noted a bit of noise reduction would be good and I know this is on the agenda. Service was outstanding and I'm thrilled to have such a wonderful restaurant in our community. Will definitely be back!
Happy with the service however the food was just okay. Also requested a booth and noted it was for a birthday but the staff didn’t seem to be aware. They were accommodating though. I did enjoy the fancy non-alcoholic cocktails. Overall a decent place but just missing that extra something I guess.
Fine, tasty food, very friendly staff. A slight problem was solved professionally
We enjoy the appetizer dishes and would recommended to friends to try. Our main dishes are good but all of us found our main dishes be dry, so it wasn't as impressive as the appetizer. Great wine list with reasonable price. Tiramisu sundae was a good twist
Great place to gather with friends! The server was great and very funny :)
My friends and I had a wonderful dinner at Piva. Our server, Zack was so great. His sense of humour, knowledge of the drink/meal menu and his overall demeanor made the evening even better.
From the moment we walked in the door Piva’s ambiance talked to us. Clean lines, flashes of interesting art, old movies and outstanding service. Crab cakes so fresh and enhanced with herbs, pasta perfectly al dente with delicate sauces napping each strand. Nonna dessert a party in our mouths. Add in designer non alcoholic drinks and staff who care and this restaurant is one to come back to again and again.
awesome restaurant in the city of new westminster. Pizza is very tasty and i think it is a must try!
I booked for my sister birthday and everything was very good ,Food was very delicious and presentation was on point too:) My family said the loved the layout of the restaurant and felt that our server tony was excellent and Chris was very welcoming and loving to my niece and them:) And they especially loved the desert as they found the assorted desserts very well presented,All in all my family loved their experience at Piva and they would love to come back again and recommend it to anyone for special occasions or birthdays or anybody with small children :)
THANK YOU ❤️
We always have a wonderful time Nd and the food is exceptional
