Expensive "Italian"

This restaurant is very expensive to overpriced - food and wine. I'm just glad that the night we went, our food was delicious. Restaurant is located in Yaletown. Ambiance is nice, darkly lit (I like a bit more light). Good service. As much as I enjoyed my meal, for the price - well, Vancouver... read more

We love going to this restaurant when we come to Vancouver. On top of excellent food, the service is amazing. Pino always has the time to come over and personalize the experience. Besides the fact that every time we have been there he is there which is more than you can say about a lot of restaurant owners. We were... More

As an award winning chef , Pino brings a style unto itself . The strict adherence to serving the best quality food with the greatest of service is one of hills hallmarks. The menu is vast , and if you want something special , the chances are that if they have the ingredients , they will make it for you... More

Vancouver has become such a "foodie" town that it is hard to narrow down restaurant selections. But this should be one of them. It's easy to get to this trendy area by subway. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. There is a nice selection of wines and a wide menu. The food was excellent, and the service was... More

Upon the recommendation of the hotel's concierge, we dined at Cioppino's, located in the Yaletown of Vancouver. This is an upscale Italian restaurant that serves excellent food. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were placed in the wine room, which was very nice. The music being played throughout the restaurant’s audio system was a soft jazz, and that too was... More

I was scheduled to attend a dinner here with colleagues, and I have to admit I was a little concerned due to the inconsistent reviews on TA. We had a great dinner! Our waiter was fantastic and provided many suggestions for us. He started us with an assortment of appetizers, all of which were great. I enjoyed the halibut immensely,... More

Arrived for a reservation at 2100 and was offered the table between the toilet, the main walkway and the open plan kitchen whilst other, much better, tables were empty (and one remained so all evening). We were moved! Food was definitely not Italian. Pasta/risotto dishes are only offered in full portions so a pasta intermediate course is not possible. Carbs... More

The setting and atmosphere is without reproach so is the service. But the food and the wines are so overpriced.... Some of the high end wines that I could recognise were 4 time what you could have purchase them at the store!. The food on the other end was so ordinary for the high prices that we paid..... If you... More

I had great expectations coming to this restaurant, expecting to be overwhelmed by the food. I was underwhelmed. Appetizers...cut up sausages on toothpicks, rice balls with basil (couldn't taste any basil) and cut-up tomato brouchette....nothing that stood out. Crab salad...well it was crab on some salad greens....tasted okay, but uninspiring. The pasta dish....I like al dente but this was definitely... More

Cioppino's is a good restaurant. Good, not great. Staff are warm and friendly. The menu is nice. Good Italian fair. Certainly the other Trip Advisor reviews 'complaining' about the high prices are dead on. Pastas are $25.00 and up. I ordered a dungeonous crab salad for $18.50 that ought to have been teeming with crab meat. Instead, they served me... More
