The food is always superb, the service impeccable, and the owner charming!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Intimate Italian DiningThis restaurant is a real little gem. It offers excellent Italian cuisine in an intimate, quiet setting. We found the servers friendly and personable. The food was uniformly well executed and nicely presented. If we lived in Vancouver this would definitely be one of our "go to" places for quiet enjoyable lunches and dinners. My guess is that it is also an excellent place to entertain business clients as it is quiet and private enough that you can actually have conversation/discussions. Unobtrusive and attentive service.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways delightfulI love the food and the location. Dishes are consistently fresh, flavourful and well presented, and during the summer the patio's amazing. This time we were in the main room and it was delightful.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good and theFood was very good and the service also friendly and professional.

Delicious!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSerene and DeliciousWe were there on a weekday for a dinner for two birthday celebration. We've been to Il Nido before but it's a bit far from where we live so haven't been back for awhile. The food is exceptional, cooked to perfection. There isn't as much fanciness in presentation but we're just here for good food. The restaurant was very quiet when we were there, probably because it was a weekday and we had an earlier dinner than usual crowds. The decor is welcoming and classy in the dining room and feels private enough for a special gathering without having to shout to be heard. The prices for food are entirely reasonable, the wine seems a bit pricier than other places. It is a bit difficult to find from the main streets if you're not aware that it's there.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were surprised at how fewWe were surprised at how few patrons were in the restaurant for the evening. There was only 3 tables for 2, including ours that had customers, And it was a rather busy night on the downtown scene.
We ordered a bottle of wine with our dinner. After the first pouring of the vintage, the waiter elected to place the bottle on a window sill behind our table. There was more than ample space available to place the bottle on our table.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceWe like this restaurant because you can have a nice dinner for two at a quiet table - all you have to do is ask! Good food, good wine, good atmosphere. In the summer, the patio is lovely.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFell in love with this...awesomeFell in love with this...awesome food and the staff is very friendly.....5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dining experience!Will definitely visit again...from the attentive service, to the delicious food (courses timed perfectly) and the great atmosphere...truly enjoyed ourselves.
