Italia downtown Vancouver is tough. They have a small but cute restaurant. The food is okay but they could work on the bread seemed pretty boring. I would go again

Though the cafe is small and sometimes drafty, the food is delicious and very authentic. We lived in Italy for 2 years and are a little picky about our italian dishes. The staff is great and remembers us as we've been going a few times a year for 4 years.

Loved the food, and the service. Its a very cute and warm establishments. Good selection of wine. Still think of the seafood canneloni I had and cant wait to go back and order it again. Not sure that I would take my kids there, they would get bored and probably ruing the quiet setting. But fantastic for me and my husband!

Went there the first time to celebrate a birthday with a friend who loves fresh pasta; have gone several times since. Fettucine alfredo to die for!

Food and service are top notch. Friendly & efficient. Decent wine list. More suited to a couple or 2 couples; probably not a place for a large group. One of the few places in/near downtown Vancouver with consistently good food. Try it; you'll like it
