I think my first review must have been when I was in a bad mood, or perhaps right after a few days of Vancouver restaurants, which is an unfair comparison. So I'm bumping Cuckoo up to 4 stars (Very Good) which is about as high...More

While this is an italian restaurant there is a section of the menu that is marked gluten free. Dress is casual - not business just casual. This restaurant is very classy and I would suggest something a bit more up scale... More
