QUALITY /TATSE/ VALUE/ PRESENTATION
#APPERTIZER: Chicken Caesar Salad and Ricotta Bruschetta.
First impression, the presentation was outstanding, trust me, you could not find another place with such an amazing dish with an affordable price like this. The dish comes with sausage, and house pickles topping, and chicken Caesar Salad. However, we were so satisfied with the Bruschetta appetizer and the delicious complimentary balsamic crema and the toasted bread.c
#ENTREE: > Chicken Cacciatore al Forno
The Chicken Cacciatore al Forno dish looked so attractive by its colour contrasting. The dish was plated professionally in a cast iron pan which emphasized the look of the food. The main ingredient of the dish is chicken stew that is seasoned with salt, garlic, and pepper. It is such an amazing and balancing taste. The blend of ingredients contributes the flavour, texture, and appearance of the entrée. Tomato is the ingredient stands as a symbol of Italian cuisine. Hence, the red of tomato sauce with its attractive color, which is the key to this dish, covering with the intense tomato and red wine sauce flavored with fragrant rosemary and juniper pepper. Besides, the succulent chewy fried potatoes provide a different texture and flavour to the plate. Furthermore, potatoes are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals to your body, also an interesting fact that potatoes can help with blood pressure
> The potato gnocchi with wild mushrooms sauce.
Mini fact, gnocchi is one of the most consumed and famous Italian pasta dish all over the world. The gnocchi is made from potato, flour, egg and parmesan cheese and it is an excellent source of protein and vitamin. The dish has a chewy texture from the gnocchi along with the creamy and earthy flavour from the mushroom sauce. Moreover, the shredded cheese on top also provided a tangy and a strong Italian flavour. For me, gnocchi is a ‘must try’ if you go to an Italian restaurant.
> The Italian spaghetti with tomato meatball sauce:
In addition, it would be a mistake if you skip the famous spaghetti when you are in an Italian restaurant, so we decided to order one more dish even though we were pretty full, the Italian spaghetti with tomato meatball sauce. The pasta was fresh and cooked to al-dente which means “ to the tooth “ in Italian. The tomato sauce was fragrant and delicious with the flavour of fresh basil and oregano comes along with the meaty meatball. I could feel the passion and love of the chef in the dish. The meatball was not so chewy either too soft, the texture was wonderful and the seasoning was perfect with the tomato sauce. Everything was perfect except the chicken dish was a touch too oily, just a bit too greasy.
#DESSERT: The trifecta of Italian
The trifecta of Italian with 3 flavours of ice cream inside such as vanilla, matcha, and chocolate, which created a wonderful combination of flavours, is a necessary conclusion after a heavy entree.
“A perfect place for a fun and romantic night out”
ATMOSPHERE AND DECOR
The restaurant is mainly divided into four areas: bar, lower level, upper level, and private seating areas. Private seating areas are separated from the main hall by a wall of wine rack, which adds a classical touch to the atmosphere of the restaurant.
The interior and the lighting were absolutely amazing! Brightness of the lights were adjusted by a staff manually. As it gets darker outside, the light gets dimmer and yellowish. The whole lighting system changes the mood of the restaurant; it becomes more romantic!
By dinner time , the whole restaurant was full of customers and some people had to wait. Through out our meal, we could sense that the guests were enjoying themselves by listening their laughter and chatter.
This spacious restaurant was very neat and clean. There were no dirty glasses or plates to ruin your appetite. The tables were cleaned soon after the customers leave. All the servers and front of house staffs were well-dressed in their black and white uniforms, matching with the classic atmosphere and the interior design of the restaurant.
The service was absolutely amazing. From the host to the server, all the staffs in contact with the guests were hospitable and welcoming. They were willing to introduce and explain the special features and events going on at the restaurant such as ‘Dine out Vancouver (pre-selected 3 course meal by the chief for $25-$35)’, ‘Happy Hour (selected cocktails for $5)’ and ‘Trrat Tuesday (Signature pastas for $13) ’. I could tell that the servers were trying to assist the guests. I loved their kind explanation and warm welcoming.
Integration of Modern Food and Beverage Trends
Food and beverage always goes together.
The right choice and the right combination of them two, can enhance the flavor of the food.
As we all know, we can not talk about Italian dish without a good glass of wine.
Trattoria offers various wines from all over the world. Starting from Canada, United States, New Zealand and all the way down to Italy.
Since food and beverage from the same region go along with each other, about 40% of Trattoria’s wine selection is originated from Italy.
If you are not a big fan of wine, no need to worry! Tarratoria also has various kinds of beer, cocktail, and numbers of non-alcohol beverages for you to choose from.
I personally believe that if I go back to Trattoria next year, it will still be there.
