High end Italian right in the Village, mostly for couples or adults, not a great place for young kids because it is a multiple course meal with spacing during courses to allow diners to enjoy the ambience and wine on the table. Excellent food and service, and prices that you would expect for fine dining at a popular ski resort.

We got a night out sans kids and my husband brought me here to celebrate my birthday. We were the only people sitting out on the patio since it was a little chilly (but there were heaters going). It was nice to sit outside and people watch. The food and wine were both pricey and the service was just ok.... More

I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The food is delicious, with a great Italian flare. The wine choice is great but slightly over priced. If you are out for a big fancy meal, this restaurant will work. Service is really good.

Returned to this Resto on a recent holiday. Still love the dining room & atmosphere. Wine selection was a delicious Barolo - thanks to the sommelier for that! Service was friendly and efficient too. The appetizers - tuna tartare & a bisque were very good although the tartare was a little less flavourful than I would have liked. It was... More

The service, the food was extremely poor. I ate lasagna a couple of times there a few years ago and this time I found it terrible. The waitress hardly spoke to us. My friend's dinner was dry and not looking good. Pricey and bad place

About 10 minutes later a female waitress came to the table and without introduction asked about our drinks . When I commented she was not our original waiter was told they tag... More

Since it's 1981 debut, this restaurant remains King of the Mountain. Located in the heart of Whistler Village, Umberto Menghi's Il Caminetto expresses warmth and hospitality. Offering fine Tuscan cuisine at its very best accompanied by a large selection of international wines with the emphasis on Italian.

Come for fun, relaxation, or romance to this cozy dining room, rich with colour and Italian charm. In the summer Il Caminetto's patio is the perfect place to "see and be seen" along Village Stroll.
