Delicious! :)

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... read 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

Small intimate restaurant with very friendly service. The meal tasted good and was refined. I suggest the Cinch Spaguetti. It was amazing!!

Ate lunch and dinner here on a weekday. The hamburger at lunch was great, very tasty, and good fries to go with it. For dinner had the sockeye salmon with caesar salad. The salad was very good, the salmon was pretty good, just a bit over cooked. Being an Italian place, I asked for a side of pasta with the... More

As the last restaurant we visited in Vancouver in our recent trip to Canada this fine restaurant proved to be a little gem. The staff were happy to guide us through the menu, and we enjoyed a fine meal that was well presented and beautifully cooked. If this restaurant was a few thousand miles nearer home I suspect that we... More

Just arrived in town and walked down the street to find a restaurant. Found this place and checked the menu and decided on the 10oz Rib Eye. What a surprise as the steak was cooked to perfection. Any concerns we initially had were quickly replaced by the quality of the food. Will go back for a pasta if I have... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this wonderful little Italian restaurant. Tables were few but it was busy and most importantly the pasta meals were a delight. We are so pleased that we happened upon this gem of a restaurant. Service was excellent.
