We went to Trattoria for my daughter's 15th birthday at her request. We've tried all other Glowbal Group restaurants and been overall pleased. We were seated promptly and wine Wednesdays = burrowing owl for $34 - yay! After ordering a child's chicken meal along with our food, the wait was acceptable for a rather empty place, however (my son is... More

We were out for a walk on West 4th avenue and looking for somewhere to eat. My daughter noticed that there was a wine special that evening that would give us any bottle on the menu at 1/2 price. She insisted we give it a try. The restaurant was very busy and noisy, but everyone seemed to be having a... More

Ever since our 'go to' favorite Italian spot (nIck's spaghetti house) went to the crapper a couple years back, we had been on a mission to find a new Italian joint. Well let me tell you, Trattoria is hands down our new 'go to' spot when in Vancouver. We have been here for dinner about a dozen times now, and... More

We ended up here because it came highly recommended, what a huge disappointment! We didn't have any appetizers, we just ordered our meals, Gnocchi with sausage & basil, for myself, and Veal Saltimbocca for my husband. Gnocchi was mush, sure didn't taste like the potato/pasta it is supposed to be. The sausage, tasted like breakfast sausage, (which I dislike) and... More

We met for a family dinner at this well-ranked restaurant. Our experience was profoundly disappointing. I arrived about a half-hour ahead of the rest of my party, requested an outdoor table, and was invited to wait in the lounge area. I asked the hostess whether I could have a drink while I waited and she said yes. I waited for... More

Dined here a few times over the years. The food and service was good. The restaurant is already looking tired, especially the patio. I remember the first couple of years the planter boxes on the patio were wonderful and fresh. Now they are filled with dying weeds. Not a very nice ambience for dining. The mini doughnuts used to be... More

West Vancouver is without a doubt the most beautiful area of magnificent Vancouver, but it strangely lacks in quality restaurants. This new Italian restaurant brings to the area a different flavor and cuisine to the copycat restaurants already existing in the area which offer similar menus and ambiance. The starters, entrees and desserts are well presented and tasty, the service... More
