We had one night (Friday) in Vancouver, after trying several restaurants on a busy night my wife and I stumbled across a hidden sign for Il Nido and thought why not have a look. Hidden away down a dark passage way we were about to turn around when we come across the doorway. Upon entering we were greeted by the manager (Franco) and told we would have about one hour to wait. We decide to stay and wait, have a drink or two. Surprisingly after twenty minutes we were taken to a table.The menu was quite comprehensive and the staff took time to guide us through the menu with a few recommendations. We decided to follow one of the recommendations and shared a first course as we were told it was quite a lot for one person. When the main course arrived I thought we had made a mistake in only ordering one first dish. The plate was small but on closer inspection was very deep. We both struggled to finish the main course and could not even think of ordering a desert. During the evening we were asked by three different waitresses, and Franco, on a few occassions if we required any drinks, bread help or advice.
This restaurant was a great experience made so by the attentive staff but more so by the quality of the food.
Don't miss out on a great eating experience and excellent value for money
