This small Italian restaurant was just the place for my last night on vacation. It is within a couple of miles from the airport. The pasta was great. The house wine was good. But it was the panna cotte that blew me away. It was the best I've ever had.

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
