We had our group lunch here yesterday and was not so happy on the way we were treated by our server (Jen). Our reservation was at 11:30 and we were all seated on time except for one person. While we were chatting and waiting for the other person, at 11:45 the server came to ask us if we were ready to order. We told her we were still waiting for one more person and to give us a couple more minutes. She said and I quote "well it's already 11:45 and we might need the table." Mind you the restaurant was empty at that time. NO ONE was waiting for a table. I think what she said was uncalled for. It was rude and it ruined the fun for us. Thank God the food came quick and tasted great!

We had clams and mussels, and there were plenty of sand in them... and it was fishy too so it wasn't fresh. The salad was ok, and the feature spaghetti was just ok, my daughter like mine better. The seats were oily and we had asked the server to bring a wet cloth so i can wipe it clean, no one bothered to care.

While the service was fine, I can’t say the same about the food. My friend and I ordered a margherita pizza to share, and it was so oily and bland, we barely got through one slice each. Not worth the price.

The pizza was really amazing! I loved it how the chef was generous with the ingredient to cover the whole pizza with less crust left over! I would continuously go back

The food used to be better, prices were cheaper/better value. There used to be more options on menu as well. I had a linguini Vongole....it sucked..over cooked cheap seafood and no clams that I could tell. It is a simple good peasany dish from Naples, i dont know how they could have screwed it up so badly!!

I brought my mother and sister in-law there and they are both very happy with everything in the restaurant. Food was beautifully presented. My fish was grilled to perfection and my veggi was a combination of a number of ingredients deliciously cooked together. I can see the sincerity in their goal to prepare a great dish for their customers. My husband and my s-i-l would like their braised short ribs to be more tastier and juicer though. Portion was generous. I can go back any time and have recommended to friends many times already.

The experience is always enjoyable, price for the meal is phenomenal on Tuesday. Service is sometimes obsolete, hard to get drinks or refills, seems to be a repeat pattern from past experiences, but not the worst.

Did a great job of handling allergies, and served yummy food in short order. Had no problems letting us loiter and finish our bottle of wine. Great prices on Tuesday.

I ordered the Linguine Vongole and brussel sprouts. Felt like our server could have been a little more attentive to our table. I understand that the restaurant was busy, but would have appreciated being checked up sooner after our food arrived. The food was really good, but one thing that I didn't like about the pasta was that there was only one clam, and it was extremely sandy. To the point where I couldn't eat it, and it really irritated my teeth.

I would recommend Trattoria for a drink or two. They've got a great virgin drink menu. BUT when it comes to their food, I believe there are better options out there for the price. If you're craving pastas, there are diffidently better pasta options in Burnaby. We were placed in a small area that had 3 parties going on and so it was way too noisy to really hear one another at the table. I also wasn't impressed that I can see the plate wiping marks on my plate of pasta.

We have been to Trattoria before (2018) and the food was much better (this was on a tuesday - one of their busiest days). But this time we came in on a friday and the food lacked seasoning and was much a much smaller portion size than what we previously had. The calamari was so salty, and the truffle spaghetti and beef tenderloin where all under seasoned. The server was not engaging either. She did have an issue with the table beside us that became an argument which made the experience poor as well. The waitress had brought up the issue again lightly to that table which caused more comments made. We had also never been refilled for water and I had to ask someone who served food to refill it for us. Also we had waited to pay for quite some time. At the end of the night, when we were leaving, we noticed the waitress was behind the bar on her phone. This is not okay especially if her tables were not being looked after properly. I sadly will not recommend to come here due to this experience.

It was a beautiful summers evening so it was nice to be able to sit outside. We have dined at Trattoria several times, and I decided to try something different from the pasta for a change. The meal was excellent.

We brought American friends to that restaurant because the meatball spaghetti with truffle sauce was excellent which they were engaged to. They enjoyed every moment of dining there at the excellent atmosphere.

We waited for 15 min for a server to greet us and when she finally showed up, we expressed our feelings for having to sit here for too long. Her response was “I am busy and I have other things to do” and funny thing is there was 3 tables in total
We ordered a panne Alfredo for our 6 years old, it arrived within 3-5 min and not cooked. No one quality checked with us and finally when the bill came, we let our server know and she said that she will take it off the bill, like we cared not pay and leave
Horrible experience
