Delicious Date Night Restaurant!

This is a must dine, romantic Italian restaurant in the heart of Yaletown. Great food, outstanding wine list. Wonderful waiter who knows his wines well and can make astute recommendations. Delicious, lobster risotto. Hearty, yet light and flavourful. Cannoli for dessert just made my tummy happy... read more

Excellent food and very food service. I went there with my wife and had a very good dinner: Classic lobster bisque, porcini and chestnut soul, sautee mushrooms with potatoes and risotto with lobster. All dishes were very tasty - definitely a place to recommend.

My husband and I visited Cioppino's on Friday, May 30th, 2014. We were in Vancouver to take in the 'Eat Vancouver' trade show, & really wanted to experience a few of Vancouver's highly regarded restaurants. I must say...it was a truly unforgettable experience! The in house cured meats we had as an appetizer were AMAZING! I was so impressed with... More

This was my first visit to this award winning Grill & Enoteca. Cioppino's is located in Yaletown generally an easy walk from most Vancouver hotels. Parking in the area can be difficult, so I suggest you make use of the restaurants Valet service ($12.00). The first impressions are positive, warm greeting by the Hostess and inside the ambience is very... More

Vancouver - don't tell me that's all you got!! We were disappointed eating at this place last weekend. A mediocre fare - your old school typical menu, plates way too big and no creativity in presentation. The interior is also cheap (plastic flowers tell it all) and not what you would expect from a high-end eatery. Wine list is gimmicky:... More

Cioppino is a seafood stew that is generally an inexpensive way of feeding great fresh seafood to a lot of people. It’s usually found in more casual atmospheres. Cioppino’s restaurant is definitely more of a high-end foodie experience. Our first experience was with the wine list that is an amazingly great list, but the price tags are seriously overweight. It... More

We were in a private wine room off the main dining area where they managed to seat twenty-two of our family at one single table for a special birthday celebration. Two staff persons were assigned to our group - they were attentive yet unobtrusive! Our group was offered two selections for appies, main dinner and dessert - no one left... More

If you like real Italian cuisine and you are in Vancouver you should go there. It's the best real Italian restaurant all over British Columbia. Me and my family, we loved it. It's the only Italian restaurant in Vancouver and you can taste real Italian food, it had been like being back home in my country.

The decor is very modern and very elegant with a large open Kitchen. Their wine list is by far the biggest and best I have seen in Vancouver. Their service was outstanding and the staff were all very well dressed and attentive. All of our food was SPECTACULER. They have fantastic Pastry for desert. We had a fantastic and wonderful...

This was our first visit to Cioppinos and it did not disappoint. The service was outstanding. I had a pasta dish with a lamb ragout which was delicious. My husband had the tenderloin with a pepper sauce which he said was excellent. We both had the Caesar salad as a starter and it was very good. The coffee and latte... More
