Great italian staples

Was looking forward to something heavy on the cheese and carbs, definitely got that at our dinner here. Restaurant looks nothing special, lots of seating and wait staff, as well as an outdoor patio. We were there during the period of very bad smoke due to the nearby forest fires, so we stayed... read more

I've eaten just about everywhere in Whistler over the years, and never had any interest in trying Il Caminetto because I knew it would be overpriced. Umberto's Trattoria is fantastic, but was closed for renovations so we decided to give this place a try against our better judgement. Service, room, wine were all great, but the food was terrible. $21... More

....Italian restaurants we have enjoyed. Service outstanding. Wait staff professional and honest (particularly when we were asking questions about the wine list). No reservation and we were quickly seated. DELICIOUS meal all the way through dessert.

We were seated and our waiter was polite and friendly. The food was excellent but we were not offered any bread and there was a number of specials that were not offered by our waiter. The adjacent table certainly had the better waiter and if we had him we would of given this a five rating. Just goes to show... More

4 of us chose caminetto over araxi for a change. The food really was amazing, and I don't say amazing lightly. The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection. I also had the mussels as an appt off the specials menu and I was very pleased. The service was spot on. My go to place at whistler is araxi and... More

Was quite surprised to have one of the best traditional Italian meals we've had in a long time, in Whistler of all places. We ate inside to stay out of the smoke and the service was impeccable. Great wine and drink selection as well. Pasta and other appetizers were perfectly done and the mains were superb; veal you could cut... More

We sat outside and had dinner here. The food was excellent and the service was also very good. It's a bit pricey, but the menu is diverse and the food is worth it. The outside seating is great.

Were in Whistler for anniversary this past November. Nice restaurant a bit outdated in decor. Waiter was alright not awesome, pleasant guy. Food was good not alot for the money. Portions are a bit small for the money. Would I go back probably not with such a huge selection in the area.

We arrived in town quite late and were looking for a quiet relaxing late night meal. The food was impeccable. The pasta was cooked perfectly and wait staff was helpful and prompt. The only downside was how loud the table next to us was. The deserts were very tasty
