We came to Europa with a group of friends - it was a first visit for most. The service was great in spite of the fact that there were 16 of us; choices from the menu, given the many different food preferences of all, were extensive; the food arrived promptly and was delicious. We'll definitely be back!

Visited for the first time(s) for lunch and dinner this month. Both menus offered a good selection and were decently priced. Lunch was about $22 with a (split) appetizer, side salad, panini and tiramisu dessert; dinner for two was just over $60 with tip for a happy hour bruschetta, wine, side salads and entrees. Both visits included complimentary bread and spiced/herbed dipping oil.

Food was presented well and tasted well, too -- above average and certainly better than I could make at home -- though everything seemed extra heavy on the garlic. Wine selection was great, though with a couple of exceptions was priced a wee bit high by the glass.

There are better options for an exceptional Italian meal in Tacoma, but this beats many others in Pierce County, including commercialized Olive Garden.

I helped to celebrate the 89th birthday of a friend here and truely enjoyed myself. I had the meat ravioli which was a "Special" that evening and while it was very good I didn't consider it outstanding. EB is located in the most wonderful Proctor District of Tacoma and it's a small neighborhood restaurant however it is excedingly loud and it was very difficult to hold a conversation with anyone at the table that was not sitting directly next ot me. Service was adequate but not outstanding. Having said all that I would enjoy going back and plan to.

Great food, staff and location. This is a firm favourite and the food is freshly prepared, and they have great specials. You can watch the kitchen at work - and enjoy the smells and smoke for the ovens. The atmosphere is terrific - highly recommended.

Spent an evening at Eurpoa Bistro with friends. Wasn't overwhelmed...wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere is cozy, loud, and friendly; the general environment was loud and room temperature near tropic zones. The menu was diverse, the food good, the prices the wrong side of almost reasonable. The real pleasure of the Bistro was the service. Servers are well versed, accommodating, helpful and frequently available. The service helps overcome the more mediocre aspects of the place. Out table indulged in salmon, ravioli, and a linguini dish. All were good, though not memorable. Europa is clearly a competent, neighborhood spot that will keep local regulars happy, first timers satisfied, and second timers not irritated for having returned.
