Excellent! Ambiance, food and service all spot on.
Parmesan soufflé (a must!) oysters and bolognaese starters were stand outs. Whole bronzino was perfect and Lemon Curd for dessert was as beautiful to look at as it was to eat. I can’t wait to pass this jem on to friends that are looking for a great meal in Vancouver. Truly the best meal we had in the city.

Wait staff very good. Main dining room is painfully noisy. When booking a reservation ask for the porch. It is a lot quieter. But, the food preparation was uneven. Some very good and some not so good. Portions small on some items. Food prices high and wine prices very high.

The burrata with heirloom tomatoes appetizer was outstanding, with very flavourful tomatoes and great quality burrata. We shared the 28 oz rib-eye "Florentine style", which was a very nice cut of meat, cooked medium rare (which is not really Florentine style ) as we requested. The potato casserole that was served with the steak was tasty, and the collard greens were cooked properly.
Service was very professional.
The wine list is one of the best I have seen in Vancouver, with some very rare California wines and many Italian ones. Wine prices are a bit better than one typically pays in a high end Vancouver restaurant.
Th only thing I did not like was the noise level. There are many hard surfaces, and the noise level is such that it is difficult to carry on a quiet conversation.

Very good! Was not blown away but it was worth it. Grilled octopus and chorizo is fantastic, the beans add nothing to the flavours. Prawns was amazing! Mains:
Tagliettele Bolognese was ok - lacked flavor! Veal Osso Buco was delicious, flavorful, tender and moist!

My partner and I are here for our 10th anniversary. We learned about CinCin through our friends. We had an amazing time, we spent 3 hours there. Our server Jimmy (I think) was great and very knowledgeable. We shared an appertizier, two small pasta dishes and a pork roast. And my goodness, then beef tartar was dynamite, so good, so smooth...We will definitely come back.

A big let down. Got the branzino and they offer to fillet for you. Don't do that, not sure where the rest of my fish went. Should have been charged for half a fish at best, probably the next order got that. Also the fish need some more flavor. Risotto was really good though. Service wise (apart from them tricking you with the fillet business) I was forgotten for long periods of time.

Top notch service (Sean was our guy, very knowledgable, so listen!). Wonderful pasta as a half portion leaves room for tasty dishes off the custom open-flame stove (Lab chops where 2-thumbs up). All the appetizers and main dishes were exceptional and made great use of their unique cooking equipment/stove. We'll be back, that's for sure.

Excellent Italian in the heart of Vancouver. The restaurant is on the second floor above Robson street insulating it from the busy street below but able to feel the pulse. The food is exemplary - we started with 2 small pastas as appetizers ( Bolognese - exquisite + Gnocchi - excellent but the lowest rated of our 4 choices. For a main dish we shared a osso buco and a halibut dish that was the special of the night = all was excellent. The only semi-negative is that the service seemed slow despite the fact that the restaurant didn't appear to be at capacity

Our server made our experience! She was so kind and attentive. We had several "small plates" and
all were delicious: beet salad; mushroom side; stuffed zucchini blossoms. The location was ideal, too, within walking distance of the Fairmont downtown. Next time, we'll try some pasta, which they are known for.

Overall a very pleasant experience. I had requested to be seated outside but they forgot and sat us down inside. However, my server was more than happy to seat us outside within minutes of my request :). Food was great, ambiance was perfect, and they even wrote a hand-written b-day card to us and came over to say happy birthday!

Cucina italiana degna di nota, cibo familiare.
Ho apprezzato in particolare il tonno, con borlotti e spinaci in salsa.
Cena per sei con bottiglia di vino e dessert circa 44O Cad prezzo congruo per qualità del cibo, servizio e location. Consigliatissimo.
