Awesome vegetarian pizza!

So glad we stopped here for lunch. We're never sure as vegetarians what our options will be and I'm very pleased to report that their vegetarian pizza was one of the best we've ever had! Crisp crust generously topped with lots of fresh wonderful vegies! One pizza was enough for us to split for... read more

This is an almost very good restaurant let down by finishing touches to the food. My beef was excellent , well cooked, but the sauce was seasoned to an inch of it's life. My wife had seafood risotto. Seafood was excellent but risotto finished off with so much butter as to almost make it inedible. Pleasant staff but should have... More

stopped here for a couple of times once for lunch and once for dinner the seafood rissoto was excellent although portion size was not massive and we caused a bit of a fuss when my wife asked for an ordainary cheese and tomatoe pizza but they did deliver in the end.

While I miss Mo & Misty, we continue to enjoy Cinch, it's deck on a sunny day, having a glass of wine, and appie or dinner. Great pizza too. Good for watching the world and people go by. Enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.

Ate here with my mother and sister! They offer a Sunday brunch my sister and I both had the Cinch Benedict! It was amazing. We also had a pizza to share between the three of us, the crust was cooked just right. My mom had a seafood pasta I didn't try it but it looked fantastic and she said it... More

Recently sold but the same chef. 3rd visit here because we like its small size, cozy interior and table layout (like in NO long bench). Good service, nice selection of pasta entrees and starters. Service attentive, small wine list with some reasonably priced options. Washrooms clean. Particularily enjoyed the tomato bocancini salad and the chicken liver starters. Mains are ample... More

Cosy little restaurant in the west end, dined there with my wife and son after a recommendation on its lunches. Pleasant space, food very good, except for the risotto, which was poorly executed ie over cooked and distictly sub par. I had a steak starter, followed by spaghetti also e olio. I asked that they don't put tomato in the... More

A very enjoyable casual bistro, Good variety of menu selections. Been there three times, all great. Friendly service from people who really care. Nightly specials, hard to choose! Can't go wrong here. This visit we shared a creative prawn appy, a pasta, and each had a perfectly grilled rib eye steak, and dessert. Perhaps a little too much but we... More

Sad to say, this Vancouver gem is under new management and the service was awful. My food came so late my colleagues had finished eating. The owner refused to comp my meal or adjust the bill. His reason was because I'd eaten 1/2 my meal....bad service. The food was different, missing that Cinch taste. The onions in my panini were... More
