Beautiful ambiance, great good and a fun vibe! We were a party of 6 and tried a whack of items on the menu...all delish!!! The grilled calamari steak was perfectly seared, the mussels devine and all pasta's perfectly al dente with fabulous Rich flavour profiles making even a simple pasta so very interesting. Yum yum... Going back soon!

This is a very quaint restaurant and relaxing with piano music. Great place to dine with good food, but expensive.

We had an excellent dinner here. The decor is very attractive and the atmosphere is relaxing. My grilled Pacific salmon was perfectly prepared. Our waiter was excellent. We will definitely return on our next trip to Whistler.

I recently dined at Il Caminetto and had a wonderful meal. I started off with Rabbit and had the Osso Bucco for the main course. It was all very delicious and you could taste the time and effort put into the food. The service was exceptional. From the hostess to the waiter, everyone was very welcoming and friendly. It was...

We went for a casual dinner or night during our stay in Whistler and the pizza was delicious - thin crust.
