Always a great dinner at Umberto's
Always a great dinner at Umberto's when skiing Whistler. If ever I have to choose a restaurant in the village I pick this one as they never disappoint us and the food is superb!

We had the absolute delight of dining at il Caminetto di Umberto in Whistler. The food, service and ambiance was excellent. I am looking forward to dining there on our next Whistler trip.

We sat out on the patio on
We sat out on the patio on a gorgeous summer evening, it was the first night the patio was set up. Excellent service, attentive but not hovering or chummy. All our food was fantastic. Ask for the pesto linguini (we shared it as an appetizer); it's not on the menu.

This was a 10/10 experience. My wife and I have been to many world class restaurants, including those with Michelin stars. We have also been to all Umberto restaurants more than once. This night was spectacular on all counts. The tomato cucumber soup was perfect, the langoustine salad had remarkable spice flavours, the pasta main courses came on a hot-hot plate and the red wine was at the appropriate temperature. The taste combinations, the service, the wine...amazing. Mr Menghi, Vancouver needs you back...

We sat outside on the patio, the ambiance was great. The heaters came on at the perfect moment. Attention to detail was evident in everything. The food, service and wine were all fantastic! A thoroughly enjoyable evening which we will be repeating!

il Caminetto di Umberto Restaurant is one of the Whistler restaurants that we must dine at when we are in Whistler. The food and service is always outstanding. Sitting o.n the patio overlooking the walkway through the village is always fun to people watch.

Excellent food & service!!
We enjoyed our dinner for 4 on a recent Saturday night. We were seated promptly and our server was excellent without being over bearing. The food was delicious! We both shared the ahi tuna and avocado starter and two if us ordered half orders of the lobster pasta, which was fabulous and the right amount. We enjoyed a bottle of wonderful red wine as well.
We did find the restaurant was very warm, even with the windows open. We would sit outside on the terrace next time in the summer.
Overall, an amazing experience and the best Italian in Whistler!

Felt right at home even though its been to long since last visit.
Manager was very attendative and music in bar added to ombience.
Food was very much in style of Il Giardino a past favorite.
It's a must visit if you head to the mountain.

Would go back again
This is a great restaurant in Whistler & we will be back again. Great outdoor patio, prefect location in Whistler Village. Food,
ambience & service were wonderful. A bit on the pricey side but if you stick with pasta & share an appetizer & dessert it is not too bad. We recommend it.

A treasure at Whistler
Great food and service. My only negative was the high cost of appetisers. I felt they were very expensive for what you got.

Umberto's impresses as usual
Since Umberto's Il Giardino closed in Vancouver, we have been looking forward to dining at Il Caminetto on our trip to Whistler to get our "Umberto's fix". While they do not have the delicious tortellini at Il Caminetto, there are plenty of delicious dishes to tempt the palate. My hubby had raw oysters followed by their evening special of red snapper & prawn (there was only one!) over a white bean mixture and I had the romaine leaves followed by their fettuccine with prosciutto & peas. We enjoyed a bottle of J. Lohr Chardonnay with our meal and everything was divine!

One of our Favorites
I have had many memorable and significant meals here over the last 30 years. It feels like time has stood still and I'm still in my 20's. Food, service, ambience are all perfection!!
