We had great food and great service. We can't wait to return.

There were four of us with very different culinary tastes and dietary needs. This restaurant met all of them. Our server was attentive and we really enjoyed every dish we tried. We have since spoken to others who have been to the restaurant and they told us they had similar experiences. We learned... read more

Extraordinary Italian food. Trout done to perfection, tasted like it was caught that day. Perfect meatballs. Great service, darn good value. A little pricey for us plebs, but totally worth it.

Never had a bad meal here. My mother travels a great distance just for the veal. I love the fresh fish specials and my wife loves the grilled meats. And I didn't think I liked risotto until I had their mushroom risotto. A must try. Plenty of free parking which is a rarity these days. Prices are very reasonable for... More

We have dined here about 6 months previous. The service and quality of the food doesn't appear to change, still attentive and delicious. For an appetizer, you must try the avocado e gamberetti, it is shrimp & avocado dressed with their own creation atop a bed of arugula. For our mains we ordered the spaghetti alla vongole veraci and the... More

I have been involved with the Italian Cultural Centre from the beginning, and when the restaurant opened in 1977, and it has been and still is one of my favourite restaurants. The chef/owner has been at the restaurant since 1979 and the quality of the food has remained consistent. Claudio's food reflects the flavours of Italy and it is always... More

We liked the atmosphere and the staff, it had a authentic, lively, family-owned Italian feel. The pastas on the other hand were a bit underwhelming. Specifically, all of the sauces our dishes included (marinara, pesto, and alfredo) all seemed to be stretched thin of flavor and watery at the bottom of the plate. The menu is basic and non-adventurous. Between... More

The service was fantastic and the wine excellent and I really wanted to like this restaurant located in the Italian Cultural Centre more, but in the end the pasta was slightly overcooked, and just OK tasting. Others have had better experiences so perhaps I was just unlucky, but ultimately Vancouver has an amazing selection of fine Italian restaurants and I'd... More

A Wednesday night dinner with my wife and a good friend who had always wanted to try here. We were not disappointed. Attentive, unobtrusive service (thanks Tomar!) we chose to share two apps - the mussels and the insalata caprese. Mussels were cooked perfectly served with a tomato garlic broth made for dipping bread in. The insalata was heirloom tomatoes... More

I saw this restaurant being built when I played grasshockey on the Van Tech field many decades ago. I loved in my 20s and watched myself and the staff going grey into my 60s. Now the younger generation is taking over and the food and service are still excellent. I love this place and special occasions are usually celebrated here.

Food was ok but Didn't make up for the terrible service. We made reservations (and arrived on time) and waited to even be greeted upon arrival. The hostess Asked us for our information at least 3 times and we were not seated for at least 20 minutes. She almost let people who arrived after us ahead of us. We had... More
