I went with friends on Saturday and everything was amazing. The lights were low, the service was excellent. My friends greatly enjoyed the food and o especially enjoyed the wine.
I returned with my son on Sunday as he took me out for Father’s Day.
Sunday was a bit of a disappointment:
The lights were up brightly like they were ready to close and our server was not very personal, friendly or helpful.
Food and wine were great on both nights.
I will definitely go back even if I have to take my chances on service and too much light.

I was trying to order their pizza and the server told me they were out of procutto, then I tried to order steak, the server said they were out of steak. And I tried or order Lamb and he said they were out of lamb, WTF?! Pasta was good but seriously. What kind of restaurant is out of everything a customer is trying to order out of their menu......

Wait staff is very attentive yet very patient. The food is reasonably priced & cooked to satisfaction. I would say Trattoria is a place that is suitable for a mid-range budget, while showing your guest or date that effort to make them feel special was implemented.

Although the overall evening was fine, the servers need to learn how to properly serve. They constantly were reaching in front of you to serve water and or pick up finished dinners etc., maybe more convenient for them but not great sitting the with someone’s arm in your face.

We arrived and ordered a glass of vino. we ordered our meal and our meal arrived in less than 10 minutes. I barely got my coat off. Watermelon salad was too oily and the pasta was not hot. We were finished and out of there in 45 minutes. Way too rush. It was so loud we could not talk. Great date night. NOT!

We enjoyed a GF pasta dish and Caesar salad with a glass of wine - perfect late lunch before a movie at the 5th Ave theatre. We will dine here again.

Food and value is very good.
Service by Jason average at best - no smile and very perfunctory. Asked for honey (for tea) and was told they only had enough for the kitchen! Did not make for a pleasant brunch.
Observed the other servers who interacted with guests and seemed more service oriented.
When paying with gift card was not asked to add tip (partly my fault I guess) and I had to scrounge around for change!
Would still go back as I’ve had many enjoyable meals there.

I made a reservation for a Dine out Vancouver menu on the last day of the event. I was in Japan for the most of the period and had just few days left when I came back to Vancouver. So I tried a restaurant in my neighbourhood I've never been. It was a hit. Their dine out Vancouver menu was one of the best I had ! I'll go back there again for sure.

We were there for happy hour and tried the calamari and a meat pizza. Both were only so so. The calamari was tough and overly breaded - the sauce was great though. Pizza was cheesy with sparse toppings. Our waitress on the other hand was lovely, attentive and helpful.

Very nice restaurant, not busy when we arrived so we were served right away. We arrived at happy hour so drinks were $5. Very nice servers and the food was great! The only downside was that we felt a bit rushed.

The restaurant was very busy so was very noisy. Made conversation a little difficult at times. Food was very good, I had a short rib pasta that was delicious. I was dining with 6 other people who all found their various dishes very good although one said her gnocchi was a bit bland. Tiramisu for dessert was very generous and tasty. Server was awesome! Extremely efficient and courteous. Small mix up with bill but he was gracious and patient and had error fixed immediately and smoothly. Would definitely visit again!

Came here for Dine Out 2018. The food was ok but uninspiring. Nothing that made me think, wow, this is amazing and I would eat this again. Food doesn't have to be cooked using all the latest techniques to make it exciting - I have had very simple pasta dishes at family style Italian restaurants and have loved it. It's all about the flavours and they were not that developed here.

The happy hour selection of drink and food was first rate, the service was great and the price very affordable. I found the noise level somewhat distracting and would not recommend this for a quiet intimate meeting or rendezvous. But it IS great for good food and good value.

Very accommodating host and we were able to enjoy drinks and meal for almost 3.5hours - enjoying our time not realizing the time. Wish they have craft beers on tab.
