Consistently good food that is a cut above the norm

Food is consistently good. The menu is varied and creative with some "wild meats" and local fish. Good wines. Attractive and quaint outdoor setting with chickens and rooster running around. Good service. Definitely recommend.

La Trattoria is an outstanding Italian Bistro just a few miles south of the Earl’s Cove Ferry, just across BC 101 with a view of Ruby Lake. Over the three nights at Ruby Lake Resort, we found ourselves dining on all three nights, two using our resort package fixed menu and one night ordering off the standard menu. Food is... More

Stopped in at Ruby Lake after a round of golf. We hadn't been there in 25 years and were curious about the current restaurant vs what used to be there. Seemed strange to have a high quality Italian eatery at this location but we were blown away. The food quality was great, prices reasonable and excellent service resulting in a... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and I'm still waiting for that a-ha experience other reviewers seem to have. The food is missing something - arriving either over or under seasoned. It is also incredibly over-priced as though the owners are capitalizing on one time only visitors who are driving through and do not need to be impressed... More

This place claims to be the best italian you'll ever eat & they claim to be Canada's Culinary Team...in actuality it was completely the opposite. It is a resort in the middle of nowhere attempting to facade they are a high class resort! The foods was sub par - bland, over cooked - the service was completely atrocious! To top... More

If you get a chance to try this restaurant please do. The food and service are excellent. We have been dinning there for the last few years when visiting the ruby lake resort and were never disapointed. We highly recommend sitting on the patio.

I would agree with other reviewers here. We stumbled upon this by chance while we were in the area and hungry. We sat outside on the deck and it was beautiful - a very peaceful ambiance, music playing in the background, chickens clucking around, delightful wooden tables and chairs. The food was pretty good, but some of it seemed quite... More
