A group of us had dinner in the bar. Food, service & ambience were great. Among us, we had the Caesar salad, beets, smoked salmon trio, & grilled calamari appetizers. While we don't eat family style, we do taste test each other's dishes. The salmon trio was the winner for appetizers. Sea bass, veal piccata, duck, & a veggie pasta... More

Upon entering this beautifully decorated restaurant, we were greeted by lovely hostesses and our very welcoming manager. What a wonderful beginning to a very special birthday evening. Our oyster appy was amazingly delicious. They also prepared a special request mint sauce for our rack of lamb which was the best ever...this was truly a wonderful evening that we will never... More

We had our anniversary dinner at Il Caminetto and it was great. We used to go to Umberto's restaurant in Vancouver once in awhile but since it closed we had been craving to go back. Il Caminetto is just as nice. The food was excellent. We both had different pastas and they were both delicious. The service was great as... More

The best pasta in Whistler, hands down. Umberto's always delivers high-quality food and a killer experience. You won't be upset about your evening!

Reservations were easy. We were seated at a nice table. Served right away - once we had to wait for a drink - other than that pretty attentive. Very well kept restaurant - clean - attractive interior - at times we were very warm - breeze would come from behind us occasionally - think from the kitchen! Final bill was... More

Early autumn. Sat on heated outside patio watching the world pass by. Great welcome and service. Delicious food including tasting for first time White Salmon. Went twice out of three nights in Whistler. The Barman, Bob, is ok.

We had dinner at this nice restaurant. Service was great and both our starters were excellent. However the pasta dishes, Lasagne and Gnocchi were both a let-down. Lasagne was very dry and there was far too much pasta and hardly any sauce. The Gnocchi were a little bland, the Mozzarella that was part of the dish was cheap, like chewing... More

I've honestly paid 1/3 the price I paid at this joint, and have had much tastier food. The bread came out, and 20 seconds later the food was out. We had no chance to enjoy the bread and chat with each other. There are much nicer places to eat in Whistler for the same price.
