My husband and i have visited Italy and this food is the closest thing to being there. Alfredo, the owner, is from southern Italy and his meals are fab. The only concern i would have is that it gets really noisy in the later part of the evening, so we tend to go early so we can hear each other... More

Slow service for adequate food. In this part of the world and on this very street you can do a lot better. Not worth your hard earned money.

I did not know this little area even existed in a not noteworthy city. The whole Proctor area is a treat and is a fun destination. We looked on our phones for places to eat and settled on this one. So glad we did. The food is absolutely authentic Italian cuisine and very fresh. I love that they don't have... More

What is not to like at this family friendly Italian Eatery (Bistro), from being waited on by the owner to the wonderful choices on the menu not to mention the nightly specials (salad through dessert) It was an amazing culinary experience that I quite appreciated from other options available :) Yes we will be eating there again with our children...

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 Europa Bistro is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with authentic Italian cusine and a friendly atmosphere that feels welcoming and special. 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!
