No Complaints Here
Submitted Monday, June 1, 2009 - 8:35am [Dine in]

I have been here three times in the last few weeks. Food has always been good to excellent. The Taquitos and the bimony cake dessert are a favourite as well as the grilled cheese sandwich at lunch. the draft beer is crisp and well poured. Food is very good value. Service staff have been friendly and proffesional, they scewed up on an order one time, we told them and it was fixed right away. NIce local place to go, Not pretending to be anything it is not.

Trattoria Italian Kitchen1850 West 4th Ave, Vancouver
Not So Swooning
Submitted Wednesday, June 25, 2008 - 7:47am [Dine in]

More Prada, Guicci and Jimmy Choo here than you can believe. Certainly this weeks spot for all the fake kisses in the the air to be seen.

Room is pleasant but squishy, I now know intimate details of the lives of the two tables next to ours. Kitchen is more "in your face"
than open. Expiditer need to tone down the "runners please/now ordering Gordon Ramsay (minus the explicatives) routine which was quite invasive.

Service was ernest with every glowbal manager mustered to the ready "charm" inhand.

Food:

Heirloom Caprese - excellent
Lamb Pizza - Very Greasy Served on a pizza paddle that left no room on the table for anything else. Good dough structure but more topped focaccia than pizza
Spaghetti with Meatballs - Spaghetti was well spiced but the "famous Kobe Meatballs" left us wanting, a little like eating at my cousins home who married an Italian and although she trys her best to follow an Italian recipe just doesn't get it.
Gnocchi - our least favourite dish, a little lead weighty
Roast Chicken - Excellent flavour and finish
Tiramisu - Excellent except for the coco powder top.

Although billed as a trattoria, this venture is no budget Italian dining experience. Will return in a few months once the hype has died down.

Lastly folks if a customer asks for salt all that is required is a salt shaker. The whole bit with the Bolivian Rose rock salt being grated at your table is way overdone and removes control of one of the most personal aspects of dining from your customer - that of salting your food.

Ciao Bella!!!!!

Great Beer - Good Food - Great Times
Submitted Wednesday, January 9, 2008 - 7:16am [Dine in]

I have become somewhat of a regular here since moving to "The Drive" Perhaps the best list of Belgium Beers I have ever seen (even in Belgium). Food is solid and considering it is a pub I would say more than solid. I never hesitate to my "Westside Foodie" friends there. Here are some standouts from the menu that are great value. The bennys at brunch - YUM. The seafood chowder at lunch. The smoked meat sandwich at lunch huge and delicious. The mussels are always fresh and juicy and the thai jumbo prawns are always on my list. Servers are always eager to please, a rarity on The Drive and the place always has a nice feel to it.

Brunch Blah Beblah blah blah
Submitted Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 7:51am [Dine in]

Its new so I will try again in the next while

Seating is sardine like. I am all for cozy but this is a bit rediculous. Had to inconvenience 5 people to get to the table.

Nice room, staff was trying hard and there are nice touches.

Brunch was Blah though.

Bennies overcooked, undersauced and the corn bread was to dry.
Potatoes were good but cold and the bacon was again cold.

Perhaps a Marg on the patio next summer till then adios!!!!

I thought I was the only freak who ate here
Submitted Thursday, November 1, 2007 - 4:32pm [Dine in]

I saw another review about this place so I guess I can admit that I am not the only freak who dines here.

So the low down:

MOVE OVER all you other burger joint wannabees. This is hands down the most incredible burger in the city. Fresh, greasy and DELICIOUS. A double patty and serving of fries that is so huge that it is impossible to finish for only 5 bucks!!!!!!

A Warning:
Be prepared to dine with (and it is all counter seating) all kinds of colourful characters. In the past my meal companions have run the gambit from a previous Vancouver Mayor (now a Senator), senior members of the police, top legal scholars to crackdealers, pimps, dealers, ho's and street people. All part of the unique charm and ambiance

PS This place is absolutely worth the visit BUT DONT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR.

How not to run a restaurant
Submitted Friday, October 26, 2007 - 8:06am [Dine in]

Ok I swore that I would never return here but......it was a Monday night and I gave in to peer pressure. The result. I absolutely stand by my initial review. This restaurant should be a prerequisite case study for all hospitality students on HOW NOT TO RUN A RESTAURANT. Specifics you say:
1. Rude greeting at the front door
2. A waiter who could not have been less caring.
3. 20 minutes wait for a bevvy???
3. Main courses that arrived 15 minutes apart. 2 members of our four member group had finished their meals before the other two meals had arrived - TIMING PEOPLE TIMING
4. No quality check - or should we say table avoidance
5. OK and I mean just OK food

A try testiment to the fact that success in the restaurant business is a truly random thing - otherwise this restaurant would have closed years ago.

Don't waste your time or money.

MMMMMMM MEAT
Submitted Thursday, January 4, 2007 - 11:28am [Dine in]

Hat's off to the Fuller Brothers on this one. Crisp and polished service, best onion soup I have had in a long time. Perfectly aged/cooked steaks. I was in a foul mood and looking for something to comment on. All I can comment on is MMMMM MEAT.
Highly recommended for carnivores.

Solid says it all.
Submitted Thursday, January 4, 2007 - 11:15am [Dine in]

I have been eating here for the last 5 years on and off. Kind of my old standby. Solid food and service, can be "hectic" pre-movie. I have often wondered how they manage to get all that food out of that tiny kitchen and have marveled at the efficiency of it all. Standouts are the Ahi Tuna App which is a steal, the Pizzas and the Spaghetti (fresh made) with tomato, garlic and extras virgin olive oil especially in summer when the tomatoes are at their best. My only complaint is that the room can be loud at times. Handsome portions and always good value.

Can You Say RIP OFF
Submitted Thursday, November 2, 2006 - 8:51pm [Dine in]

Can't complain about the food as it was good to very good and the staff were "new restaurant friendly" but the price OMG. My trips to Urban Fare and Whole Foods seem like a bargain. An inexpensive bottle of wine, an appy and a pizza $78. YIKES.

Incendio up the street offers great food and way better value if you are in the mood for a good pizza.
