Thought we would check it out while visiting from out of town. Server Keagan U was not very friendly ( he didn’t even introduce himself) only know his name as it was on the bill. He was very rushed and couldn’t take the time to discuss with us drinks. We were there 9:30pm, the restaurant wasn’t very busy.
Enjoyed the Zenzero, very good.
Food, not the be all end all. Spaghetti was bland.
With so many great restaurants in Vancouver, we won’t be back.

Great service, probably the best wood fire grill in vancouver, better than savio and Luigi’s. Pasta is a bit below though. Best wine and spirit list

Food was great service was excellent had this waiter before he is very good and knowledgable. But it was so noisy it sounded like we were at a nightclub. That really disappointed us. Your supposed to be an upscale restaurant not a neighborhood bar. The other times I have been here were amazing but this last visit has made me very disappointed.

Unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to its reputation. The service was excellent however once our entres were served our waiter never did come back to check on our satisfaction leaving us no choice but to eat what we received.

The dinner size gnocchi was such a small portion that it was served in a cast iron skillet no larger than a salad plate.

Two of us order Osso Bucco priced at $44 only to receive dishes that were lukewarm and both servings of meat were tough. How is it possible to serve a braised meat dish that was tough? The accompanying risotto was a soupy concoction that looked more like a sauce than risotto. Total serving amount of risotto was less than one cup.

Pasta dishes were fine but not worthy of the prices.

I would not recommend CinCin if your goal is to have fine Italian cuisine.

Cincin's idea for a birthday recognition was to put one candle on the dessert we paid for and card signed by the chef......?
The table we were seated at had a cold draft from outside because it was actually located on an outdoor balcony that was poorly draft-proofed with plastic. It' s winter-time!
The risotto was tough and the scallops were under-done.
The crab was tasteless and the shrimps were soggy.
Not good value for the money but a good place to come if you want a $2499.00 bottle of wine!

We celebrated a wedding anniversary there. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, particularly with the wine selection. The food was excellent. We were on the terrace where the outdoor heaters were on, making it too warm initially but our waiter got it turned off and the temperature was fine after that. An excellent evening and we would definitely return.

Really enjoyed our first experience at CinCin. Food was excellent, as was the service and selection of fine wines. Our only complaint would be that tables are a little tight and it's very loud. The 2 of us felt like were yelling at each other. We'd definitely go back but not sure the noise level would be for everyone.

I was quite disappointed with the lacking service-especially at the price we paid! Our server did not check in with us to see how anything was, and we were often left sitting for lengthy periods of time wondering where he was. The food was great, but I did not enjoy having our server clean our table while we were still sitting there without so much as an "excuse me."

The food and service was outstanding as usual. It was busy, as they are only open for lunch for the holidays so it was a little bit noisy which is to be expected. We shared five courses and everything was delicious and perfectly executed. Lovely cocktails, wines paired well and digestifs finished the afternoon off. CinCin never disappoints.

Food was amazing! We absolutely loved the grilled humboldt squid. It had an amazing charred flavour and was cooked to perfection. The lamb rack was so deliciously tender. The veggies and olive oil mashed potatoes were also perfect. The olive oil used had incredible flavour.

This was our 3 time eating there in the past few years, for dinner. We were celebrating my husbands 65th birthday (his actual BD is Dec 25). Over the years there hasn't been any change in the great service, food and staff. We will definitely be back again and also will spread the word if someone asks us for a recommendation on a place that they would be leaving with a WOW experience.

It had been over ten years since I last visited CinCin, and remembered ordering a pizza for lunch.
It's now no longer on the menu, since the kitchen acquired its new wood fired oven!
However, our Linguini Lobster and Pork Belly were out of this world! The two desserts were also a delight, and the service was great. We loved being seated in the balcony, and it was a perfect evening,
topped by a beautiful bottle of a Californian pinot noire.
