This is the 3rd of 4th time I have eaten at this restaurant, and for good reason. The food is wonderful and the service is attentive. This is a go-to restaurant for out-of-town guests and when I want really good italian food. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

We enjoyed a delicious last dinner, with attentive service and dishes brimming wonderful flavours. The restaurant filled up quickly, a testament to the quality of the food and service. Pasta was perfect with lovely... More

Such a common theme to the reviews of the West Coast Cafe - and there is a good reason. Service is excellent and the food is wonderful, well prepared and served hot. My wife greatly enjoyed her pasta with chicken in aurora sauce; I had the Mahimahi special with a caper sauce, creamy polenta and al dente cooked mixed vegetables... More

Stayed at a hotel a block away and was directed to this area with a number of eating establishments. I passed the front window and noticed the place was packed. The menu seemed good enough so I went in. The interior is quaint. The service was really good. The food quality was above average. I enjoyed the mozzarella/tomato salad, Veal... More

We have eaten here multiple times. This last time we enjoyed the service and meal. I ordered the Chicken Picatta. This is served with polenta and sautéed vegetables. They allowed me to substitute the polenta for pasta. The chicken was tender and the sauce very tasty (licking the plate tasty). The sautéed veggies were crunchy and not overcooked. I substituted...

I was not sure what to expect but I was very pleased with the food, ambiance and service. There were three of us and my 10 year old niece. All of us had different items from the menu.

We received a gift card so we tried out the restaurant. The place was clean, nice atmosphere, and the staff were very friendly. The menu and price was average for an Italian restaurant. The server was very friendly to my family (two kids). The food came out in decent time and it tasted good. The portions were on the smaller... More
