“This place is the shiznit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

After a decade of coming to Vancouver many times every year we finally decided to try CinCin because it is within walking distance of our accommodations and the reviews on TA have been pretty good. It took us this long to try CinCin because the restaurant is located on busy Robson St. and we don't usually relate good food experiences with Robson St.. Plus the name of the restaurant irritated me for some reason - silly, I know. The restaurant is clean and tidy and had me thinking of an upscale Italian villa complete with a veranda for people to dine al fresco overlooking Robson. Quite a nice restaurant actually and not the same overdone trendiness that can be found in most upscale Yaletown restaurants. We had cocktails and wine which was all excellent - they make an outstanding Boulevardier for those of you who are bourbon and/or negroni fans like me. Our appetizer of octopus and chorizo was really good and our entrees of halibut and the tagliatelle bolognese were both knockouts especially the tagliatelle! When it arrived I was a little disappointed in the appearance of the dish so I didn't expect much but I was way off. It turned out to be one of the greatest pasta dishes I have ever had and even after the server explained to me how they make it I still don't understand why it was so good, it just was. There is absolutely nothing to complain about with CinCin but keep in mind this is fine dining so expect fine dining prices. If you are looking for a great spot to impress a date then this place will do the trick for you.

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The wine list selection and choices by the glass were teriffic. We enjoyed a beet salad that was almost too pretty to eat followed by a light and delicious gnocchi. The service is spot on. Friendly and professional and not at all snobby.

“Great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Amazing wine list and well prepared and delicious food. Only downfall was the outrageous bill which I thought was bit presumptuous

“Very Pretty Interior but also nice balcony outside to people watch on Robson Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Beautiful upscale Italian restaurant on Robson Street with gorgeous interior and excellent service. We went here three times during our three day visit to Vancouver: twice just to have a glass of wine, and once to have dinner. Try the Risotto. It is excellent!! If the weather is nice, ask to sit outside on the balcony; however, even if you have a dinner reservation, it is first-come so may not be available.
