Pasta Tuesday @ Trattoria

Trattoria Italian Kitchen Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Location: 1850 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver

Admittedly, the main reason we visited this restaurant was because every pasta dish is $12 on Tuesday nights.

Trattoria is a casual Italian restaurant situated in the Kitsilano neighbourhood. The seats are comfortable, the ambiance is vibrant, and the service staff is professional and friendly. How about the food?

Complimentary meatballs

Cheesy, moist, and a little bit spicy. Nothing more, nothing less.

Burrata Crostini Trio ($16.95)

From top to bottom:

  • Creamed leek & mustard vinaigrette
  • Smoked pancetta & fritto artichoke
  • Pear & hazelnuts

They gave us a generous amount of mascarpone cheese to the point where it was almost too rich. My personal favourite was the pearl & hazelnuts.

Pastas ($12 each!)

Liguine Gamberi ($22.95 regular price) & Short Rib Pappardelle ($19.95)

The liguine had a tomato-based sauce with capers, chillies, olives, and tiger prawns (3x). Warning: the olives were very salty. Prawns were well-cooked. It was a familiar-tasting pasta.

In contrast, the short rib pappardelle was something more out of the ordinary (in our opinion). The wide noodle went well with the heavy cream sauce. On the menu it wrote “café au lait”. Doesn’t that mean milk coffee? The roasted pine nuts and wild mushrooms made it a very earthy pasta.

Complimentary tiramisu

It is priced at $8.95 on the menu. I would say the portion size is more than generous.

I felt this dessert could do without the biscotti. The tiramisu itself was already very decadent (and filling).

Molang Scores & Verdict

Food: 4/5

Value: 4.5*/5

Service: 5/5

*Based on Tuesday prices

I realized 40% of our meal was complimentary… Oh, we are not complaining.
