The best pasta in Town 😍,Highly recommended! 👌👌👌
Excellent and authentic home cooked Italian dishes. Very friendly and attentive servers. The pastas are cooked to perfection and the ingredients fresh and delicious. Great value. Will be going back.
First time there. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Had bruscetta and carpaccio for starters and seafood risotto and osso buco with risotto. Very tasty! Definitely going back. And.....tirimisu for dessert - yummy.
Food was really fresh and authentic Italian. Generous amount of main ingredients. Had a risotto, slightly salty and could have put in more rice in the dish or getting an appetizer is recommended in my opinion.
BEST Italian food in Vancouver- truly authentic. The atmosphere is romantic and cozy-yet fun. The patio is charming. A perfect date spot or to catch up with a friend.
Excellent authentic Italian meal. Wonderful service as well. Best Italian I’ve had in a very long time
We were only in Vancouver 5 days this week and went twice! Was SO good!!
We picked Robba di Matti out of Yelp on our first night visiting in Vancouver. What a find!!! I had the lobster/crab ravioli, and the flavor sang in my mouth from the first bite till I hit the sack. Taste that makes you sit up, take notice, and be grateful that you have taste buds! My wife calls her osso di buca "Superb". The staff is partly Italian and enjoys the parlay with folks who make an effort to speak the language. I don't know when we'll visit Vancouver again, but we will absolutely have another dinner at Robba di Matti.
Such a great family restaurant. It never disappoints
We visited this restaurant on a Sunday night and it was very busy. It's quite small with a very small open kitchen so things are a little "cozy". The Italian food was fantastic and tasted very authentic. My wife and I both had pasta dishes and they were exceptional. The service was good, average I would say. A little slow and inattentive but very friendly and helpful when they did come around.
The negative was that it was a chilly night and we were seated right next to a door to the outside which remained open the entire time. So we were quite uncomfortable and had to wear our jackets for the entire meal. If you're looking for wine to accompany your meal the list is extremely limited but is appropriately focused on Italian wines which were adequate.
The food was authentic and very tasty, however the ambience wasn't that great. If you're looking to have some great authentic Italian food then Robba da Matti is the place.
Food was outstanding, but i was on a date and it felt the staff were rushing us every 10-15 mins to order more. We were there about 2.5 hours and still spent around $140. Not sure if they were in a rush to flip the table or what. But it was a little awkward being rushed so often in the middle of conversation.
Great service. Great food
Such a cosy and lovely environment with friendly staff and beyond delicious cuisine. I will be back!
Just a regular date night and we saw the reviews - while our server and staff were great, the food was a little undercooked (pasta had more bite than I would have liked and my partner's oxtail was chewy). There seemed to be a chaos that perhaps lent to an off-evening.
Very well prepared and authentic Italian cuisine. Good value for the quality of offerings. Friendly, attentive but not too attentive service.
Most authentic Italian food I've had. Pasta is cooked to Al dente. The restaurant has an indoor and outdoor seating and is rather cramped but gives a cozy feel. The service is good; servers are knowledgeable. I would come again.
Good food and decent portion of pasta. Smaller restaurant so reservation in advance would be a good idea. Would definitely be going back
All our food was good, but nothing outstanding or really remarkable. They have some interesting choices in the menu. The lobster and crab ravioli were either a bit undercooked or the dough was too thick. The ossobuco had a bit too strong lemon flavour. The tiramisu was a bit bland. In summary, it was not bad and I would probably go again to try the rest of the menu.
Excellent food, wonderful service, will be sure to return
delicious fresh pasta, delightful staff, and a lovely cosy patio
Fun place eat outside all food was fantastic
For people who are lost and néed you can’t beat this place
The outside has a nice covered patio and nice ambiance. The inside is very close right, relatively warm space.
We got two entrees, the carbonara that was too peppery and not as creamy as I wished it would be :( and the pappardelle Rosche Rosche was excellent!
My wife and I loved our dinner. Waiter was great and the pasta was like eating in Rome. Burrata app was fantastic. Sangria was tasty. Would love to return next time we are in Vancouver.
Very good and authentic Italian food. As if you get it served in Italy.
I tried this place once and was very excited to go again. I think the only thing is that if there's 4 people in the table, give 4 complementary chocolates with the bill, not 2! It was a bit strange when that happened. Anyways, it was great food.
authentic Italian cuisine and delicious food
small but quaint
The service was awesome, the amibiance was good and you could tell that it was very authentic. My only con is that while my boyfriend was very happy with his food my pasta was on the chewy side and seemed undercooked, the flavours were amazing though.
We had a fantastic time. Great food and very nice staff. Loved that we could actually talk without loud music.
Everything is good except for the hostess...She has a terrible attitude and doesn’t know how to talk to customers. We have been there twice now and we have never been greeted with a smile by the hostess, even though that’s a big part of her job. She does it with every customer and I can see that they aren’t impressed either. Everyone else was nice and friendly.
The spaghetti dishes are rich in flavour, and also of good value. Very appreciate it.
Great food and love the family run feel
Great food, really enjoyed it. The pastas were amazing. The only reason I can't give it a 5 is that when you sit outside, you are treated to the stench of cigarette smoke. We booked it right out of there when we paid, so we could enjoy our wine at the end because we had to finish quickly.
Great food..great service..great occasion
An excellent choice for a good night..will definitely be back there again!!!
Some of the best pasta I've ever had. Also amazing value.
Our dinners ranged from good to ok. Service was great.
Great food and service! Would definitely go back! Reminded me of Italy and all the great food there!
We dined on the patio the ambiance was excellent. Enjoyed the food the service was excellent.
The food and wine is great value. My only complaint is that while we reserved an outdoor table, when we arrived we were told only inside seating was available. It was a bit warm and crowded inside.
Italian food at it’s best. Great friendly service, delicious and healthy fresh food. We both loved it.
