    Our first time in Vancouver and on the recommendation of our service desk employee we dined at Pacifico. She was 100 percent correct. The pizza was fantastic Service was fast and friendly and the pizza and house salad were perfect for a late dinner. We would come here again and recommend them to anyone else staying downtown. It was a very short walk from the Marriott.

    Pacifico is one of our favorite places for pasta or pizza in Vancouver. This last time we were having a pre Sea Wheeze run carbo loading meal. In addition to these pre-run meals, we enjoy going there whenever we are in Vancouver. Good service, good food.

    I needed a quick and easy lunch and this restaurant was close by. I was the first person thru the door right as they opened at noon on a Saturday. They recommended the pizza and it was simply delicious. The service staff were also very friendly and pleasant. I was in and out in 25 minutes having had an amazing made from scratch pizza. I'd certainly return again if I needed to eat in that part of the city again - no hesitations!

    We had a really decent pizza here the other night. But our vongole, while tasty, was really mushy. As in, mushy like the can of chicken noodle soup mushy. Hopefully that was a one time mis-step instead of how they cook their noodles all the time!

    Dined on 5/3/2014
    We came to Vancouver for the marathon and the Italian food did not disappoint. My boyfriend had the spicy meatballs and spaghetti and I ordered a salad with grilled seafood and vegetables. There was no lobby so we waited for a table crowded around the bar tables which I think was annoying for the other diners. And it was a bit loud I was glad we were seated by the window instead of upstairs.

    We decided to go dine at Pacifico prior to watching a movie at Scotia Theater and we got seated at an awkward table mid level. The pizza we ordered were alright I feel that the toppings may have been too thin as some of it was slightly dried out I understand it is think crust oven fired pizza but it just didn't give the visual or mouth appeal. The lasagna we ordered was slightly better but too garlicy and not hot enough. I wouldn't go back anytime soon but it is convenient considering it's location.

    I always enjoy my experience at pacifico. Service is pretty fast. They also accept preordering to make sure we get our food on time. I haven't been here for dinner so can't comment on that. But their lunch menu is just perfect. Good portions, fresh ingredients and at a decent price. It's also a great location for my friends and I to meet up during lunch, even though we work in different parts of downtown.

    Perfect Italian-style crust - the real thing. I have yet to find another pizzeria in Vancouver that makes this properly. PLEASE keep it up! Other pizza places call their thin crusts "Italian" but they are a far cry from the real thing. We had the Cappriciosa, and I nearly cried, it was so good. A gem, a real Pizzeria.

    I specifically made a reservation so that we would be on time for a movie (we had tickets) at the theatre next door. We arrived at 5.40 for the 5.45 reservation. We were told we would be seated in 10 minutes. We told them we had tickets for the movie for the 7.10 show. At 6.10 we asked if we could order our pizzas while we waited. We were then ushered to a table which had been reserved for a private occasion as long as we could promise to be done in 45 minutes. The pizzas arrived at 6.25. By 6.40 the waitress told us to hurry up as the table was needed. This was an awful experience. If they had been upfront with us about not being able to seat us we could have gone to any of the numerous other eateries around. I would never go here again.

    My wife and I celebrated her 34th birthday recently at Pacifico. When we arrived for our reservation, we were greeted by name and were seated right away. It was a busy Saturday night, and the restaurant was full. We ordered a few cocktails, which were excellent. We decided to try the pizza first, which had a light, crispy crust, and the cheese was outstanding. My wife ordered the canneloni, and I had the lasagna. We were suprised by the enormous portions.The quality of our meal was extremely good, and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. It was a memorable evening. Highly recommended. Must try pizza!

    We needed somewhere to eat on the way from our hotel to the Orphium Theatre-so Open Table to the rescue! The restaurant is really cute inside with a wood burning oven on the back wall. Drink menu is fun and yummy, but if you aren't sure what you'd like-they will make something up for you. We looked at the reasonably priced, extended menu, but as each table got their amazing looking pizza, that's what we ordered too. And it was just as delicious as we hoped. Great experience.

    We got there before the lunch rush but the service was slow and the waitress seemed disengaged as if she didn't want to be there. Food was ok, a bit too oily and greasy, the place filled up for lunch and was completely full but I saw other guests had to wait to have their order taken as well. It was reasonably priced.

    We decided to dine at Pacifico since we were attending a tour at the Orpheum and were looking for some pizza. Unfortunately, the food and especially the pizza was just fair. We were hoping for neopolitian style pizza. The crust was thicker and denser than what we were hoping for and it felt like the pizza could've spent a minute more cooking. The salad (ceasar) unfortunately had some breakdown -- but the service was nice. Don't think we'll be coming back, however

    Our concierge recommended Pacifico for our family (2 teenage boys, my hubby and I). We wanted something moderately priced, close to the hotel and not fussy! We got exactly what we were looking for. The pizza was delicious. They use a wood burning oven and it has a thin and crispy crust. I had mussels as my meal and they were in a very yummy broth that I believe (and hope) was even reasonably healthy. Our server (who coincidentally served us both nights) was cheerful and helpful! It was just a delightful meal...both nights!
