Definitely all 6 of us had a delicious meal last night and the owner gave us impeccable service. His recommendatons were excellent. Delicous house wine. Delightful evening on a cold night. My husband and I, as did the other two couples had the fresh crabcakes over linguini with a light lemon olive oil sauce. We differed from the other two... More

Very decent restaurant. A nice special featuring seasonal crab. Reasonable wine by the glass. Skip the house salad it was one of the worst salads I have had. Still, will be willing to give the restaurant another try.

We went here for my Mom's 69th birthday and the food was excellent! Staff was very friendly but not "in your face" (you know...the kind when every time you take a bite they come by and say "how's everything tasting?")

The nightly specials are always an interesting and tasty selection of the chef's own creation. Walking in the door you can feel the easy vibe and see the happy smiles of the local patrons. Europa Bistro is a superior... More

I am happy with the ambiance of this casual Tacoma bistro, nestled into the Procter neighborhood. The kitchen is open to the setting area so diners can watch the chefs bustling around. We were seated immediately.We arrived at 5pm and the restaurant only had one other table seated. The waiter spoke broken english, heavily accented with Italian. He didn't wrote... More

We went to Italy this summer and this is place is very authentic. The food is delicious, great setting. We will be back! The caprese salad was great, my son had a pizza that was as good as the amazing pizza we had on the Amalfi coast!

Better than Spaghetti Factory...nowhere near as good as Marzano in Parkland. If you are trying to have an elegant Italian meal, head to Marzano. If you want slightly bland, but capable Italian...like, you absolutely need some gnocchi stat...this will suffice. The din in here is terrible and I always vote against Europa when a girlfriend suggests it. 1) No cocktails... More

I love this place. The food is always amazing. Creative and authentic. Sorry no pictures. I always dig into the food before I remember to take one. Service here is very European. Super authentic. Do not expect them to come and check in on you a lot. They give you your space and allow you to enjoy your meal and... More

The food is ok here but not special. The place is so noisy you have to shout to talk to the person next to you. The kitchen is practically in your lap adding to the noise. The ambiance is sort of "everyman". Lots of families and kids and groups.

A birthday dinner at the Europa for eight was a good experience. The atmosphere was excellent as was the service. Everyone enjoyed their entrees such as Penne Rustica and Chicken Marsala. It got a little smokey in the restaurant, apparently from the kitchen. Most of ordered the coconut cake based on being advised that it was the best ever. We... More
