We had an amazing time! The service was fabulous. We were a bit late to our reservation because we went to the wrong location but we called and they were really understanding and held our table until we got there from yaletown. So happy they did. Food, patio, service were all impeccable. Will definitely be back!

Fantastic food and server was nice, but organization was at a minimum. Things kept being forgotten, a wrong dish was brought out, and it generally seemed quite chaotic. Perhaps this was due to it being a busy Saturday?

Nice to get back to a long time favourite dining location. Food was very fresh and flavourful. Definitely good value. Staff was efficient and we had an enjoyable conversation with your young bus boy, Logan. He’s a keeper! The only downside had nothing to do with the restaurant, parking was a frustration. Next time we come back, taking an Uber. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

The food is amazing! The ambient is quiet and cozy! I will definitely come back soon!
The only thing that I would suggest to improve is the portion size of the gnocchi! It was really small.

The service, food and drinks are amazing at Robba da Matti. The pasta and cheese are made at the restaurant itself. The servers are extremely nice and fun to chat with!

I will definitely recommend everyone to visit and try it out. :)

My experience at Robba Da Matti is always top notch!!! I've never had a good time at Robba, it's always a great time at the West End location. The food is always on point and the service is second to none!!! It's by far my favorite restaurant in Vancouver!!!

I visited both west end and town location. West end is definitely my favourite location!Fantastic food and appetizer! Waiter was kind and professional! Because we sat at patio, smoking smell was inevitable but otherwise perfect experience. Will definitely visit again.

There was a bad table near ours where four people were excessively loud. In addition, our server underestimated the spice level of my wife’s dish and she couldn’t finish half of it.

Server was condescending. I asked if he could explain the menu to my niece and her friend and he said I am not sure what you mean that’s an odd question. He was rushed the whole time. It made me sad because not sure he likes what he is doing for a living. Chip on his shoulder. Meanwhile we were super friendly to him. Food was amazing. The busser was super friendly & professional and should probably be the waiter :)

The Carpaccio and the Merlot were simply outstanding but the Bruschetta and the Pasta were pretty average. On top of that the indoor dining room was really hot and we were literally sweating and couldn't wait to pay the bill so we could go out and get some air.

There was a huge problem last night. Our meal took 1.5 hours to get to the table. In the meantime our drink order just never came on time. Our waitress told us the story about the machine malfunction and she offered us free desserts. She was fantastic! Real and kind and just so apologetic that we couldn't be mad. She is an asset to your restaurant. She gets hospitality. She was so authentically human. Give her a raise!! We will try it again soon.

Have always loved this place…but tenting the patio! Complete loss of ambiance. Instead of a quaint parisian corner it now feels more like a tractor pull. Ditch the tents and all will be well

Disorganized, staff morale and training appears to be low based on the manager's conduct witnessed. Our server did not return to us after serving us the food + wine we ordered after a long wait seated without contact. This might be because the manager came by and checked that we were being helped and claimed "wow! someone did their job" and possibly the server assumed he was then helping us. Could clearly hear the manager arguing with customers on the phone as he paced throughout the dining room which felt quite unprofessional. The space was silent for most of the 45 minutes spent there until someone remembered the music.

We wanted to LOVE this place because the space itself is beautiful but the food was not worth it. We ordered the bruschetta which was just chopped tomatoes and dried ground basil on toast. The $28 plate of papardelle was good but not worth $28. The funghi risotto (only vegan option) lacked flavour. I would speak on the wine but unfortunately our server did not return to offer the option.
