I was dying for a little Italian while in Vancouver recently and found this restaurant online, we were not disappointed. We left very FULL and could have easily been carried back to our hotel but we walked to try and burn off the food. Great pasta, very yummy prawns and breads. Loved the service, had an amazing server and the... More

Twice in two weeks we've ended up here. This is our favourite weekend lunch place because pasta is half price. For $12 we get an AMAZING seafood pasta in rose sauce. Tons of shrimp, scallops, calamari and salmon. And when you sit on the patio you get the added excitement of watching 57 near misses a minute at that crazy... More

Ciao Bella is a small Italian restaurant on Denman St. The wait staff were very welcoming, cordial and efficient. My husband and I each had the bolignaise sauce with pasta and it was delicious and plentiful. This restaurant uses linen tablecloths & napkins and is reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Vancouver.

For $28.95 for a three course meal with live piano music it's not bad. The food was good value, not fantastic but good. We wold go again but maybe order a la carte to give the restaurant a better test. Overall it was good

We were a large group looking for dinner on a Friday night. There are wonderful restaurants in this area, but they all had long waits. Not wanting to wander aimlessly with a 2 year old we stopped here. The restaurant looks a bit dated....from the menus to the washrooms. The waiter, however, was very friendly and helpful. The prices were... More

Had an early dinner here on a week night, ordered the pollo parm with pasta. When served, it looked good but there was a lot of 'liquid' seepage around the parm, like it was quickly cooked from frozen. After a few bites, it was just luke warm and I asked the owner to heat it up a bit. He was... More

We'd just spent three hours trekking in Stanley Park, we were hungry, and as we walked back to our hotel, this Italian restaurant beckoned. We enjoyed a fine late lunch. Service was very good, and the food superb. We both had linguini, mine with pesto and meatballs and my companion's with tomato sauce. I can't recall the specific details, but... More

We were recommeded to go to Ciao Bella by friends and 6 of us went, we were warmly welcomed by the owner and serving staff. The menus were full of different foods and I had the lamb off the specials which was delicious. Everybody else enjoyed their meals stating they were tasty and filling. It was a very good evening...

My husband and I visited Ciao Bella on Robson Street earlier this year while touring Canada. We are Australians and understand the dangers of overseas credit card scams. When we went to pay for our meal the young waitress took our card and disappeared out the back area of the Restaurant. We weren't happy about her leaving with our card... More
