La Piola3189 Quadra St., Victoria
Should be packed every night
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2009 - 10:11pm [Dine in]

Just moved to Victoria and went there based on the reviews here and found everything to be terrific. La Piola is as good as La Buca in Vancouver. The service from Michael and the rest of the team was terrific and the food is even better. I had the pork rib chop which was wonderfully presented and was done just right - the fat melted in my mouth. My girlfriends pasta was great as well, the pasta is homemade and was cooked just right - firm but not hard, soft but not mushy. The tiramisu was rich in flavour and unique in style. All the food is sourced from terrific suppliers and you can see a lot of thought and effort has gone into preparing all the dishes.

The ambiance is nice although not as good as the best italian places I've been too but all in all I can't believe this place isn't packed every night - in Vancouver it would be a top ticket for Italian.

Know your drinks

Asked for an Old Fashioned and the bartender did it wrong. Ended up going up to the bar to discuss it with him and the guy puts Triple Sec in it and insisted that that's how an Old Fashioned is made. While he made another drink for us since we disagreed on how a classic cocktail should be made I'm highly disappointed that a bartender at a place like that doesn't know how to make an Old Fashioned correctly.

The service was otherwise good and it's a nice place to hang out for drinks if you're in the area - the waitresses are hot.

I've been going to LA Chicken for 20 years now and I go every month for the fried chicken. It's easily the best in Vancouver. The couple running it are a little odd and the place is very run down and sometimes there's no hot water but I'm there for the fried chicken and it's never failed me. Don't bother asking for the chicken sandwich or the nuggets, just get the spicy, crispy chicken and enjoy it.

Went for Dine Out and had the duck confit to start, the braised pork shoulder in the middle and the cheesecake to close and it was a terrific meal start to finish.

Nicole and the kitchen staff provided very good, friendly service while the food was beautifully prepared and presented. The duck confit was better than the one at Feenie's while the braised pork shoulder was a large serving with a crispy outside.

This was as good as my meal at Rare last year. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be returning.

Worst service I've ever gotten
Submitted Friday, December 28, 2007 - 12:09am [Dine in]

My friends wanted to come here to watch the Canucks/Flames game and had had good experiences here before but tonight was a completely awful experience.

Of note:

- Waitress spent more time behind the counter with her peers or with her friends than on the floor. As a result she never checked in on us and we frequently were out of drinks for 15 minutes at a time.
- Forgot my friend's order and never apologized or offer to make it up. He was charged for the food
- When I asked to have my pizza packed up I was given a box instead of having it taken away for me.
- We waited over 10 minutes to try to pay our bill but she was behind the counter the whole time.

The food was okay for a pub and the atmosphere was pretty good as well but the horrible service (other tables seemed to be getting the same treatment) means I'll never return and will definitely be spreading the word on the negative experience I had.
