Professional staff, consistent service, great food, good wine list.
We (my partner and I) were downtown unexpectedly and showed up with no reservations. Staff were gracious and seated us right away. We had a lovely and memorable meal!
We went there for Dine Out and were very impressed with the food and ambiance. It became our favorite immediately. Highly recommend!
Very good Italian food, not just pasta and pizza but a varied menu which is consistently good. Can be a bit noisy, ask for a table in the "outside" terrace section.
This restaurant blew us away! To start off the staff are incredible, very professional and warm. Our server Jamie was top notch, from making great recommendations for our meal to pacing the courses perfectly, he's the definition of a professional server. The food was the best we had on our trip to Vancouver. We started with a feature pate that was light in texture but dense in flavour, and a perfect Parmesan souffle. We shared a bunch of the pastas which were just incredible, you can't go wrong with any choice, my favorite was the tagliatelle Bolognese. Last we had the Osso bucco and lamb. Both were impeccable but special mention to how tender and melt-in-your-mouth the lamb was.. the fat was rendered so perfectly, a beautiful mid-rare cook and tasty sear. Last but not least, the best tiramisu I've ever had. From the moment the hostesses opened the doors for us, every single thing about our visit to CinCin was perfect. Looking forward to trying other restaurants from the same company because they have fine dining nailed!
Excellent ambience; tentative server and food was delicious!
Good food, but really overpriced (this is Italian food)
Food was delicious and service was good but did not feel authentic.
Probably my favoirte Italian restaurant in the city. Great service, food and a good wine list
I had my wedding here in 2016. Perfect choice. Food was yummy. Everyone had the perfect ammount of food, drinks and fun.
Lousy food and just average service. Flavors were poor at best. Did not enjoy this food.
Great restaurant. Food and service is always fabulous.
Always a pleasure to dine at CinCin. Good wine list, delicious food, though sometimes a bit noisy.
It was a great dining experience again. I have taken my parents here for dinner and this time I took my parents friends who are visiting here for a nice fancy meal. It was a very enjoyable meal. Our server Larry was exceptionally friendly and helpful to recommend food for us. Thank you for a wonderful night!!
The food and service were fabulous for our group of 8. Highly recommend this place!
Excellent food, good for small groups. Good timing for getting seated, order and receiving our food.
The food and service were exceptional. The wine list was superb. We had no problems picking out red and white wines, all from Italy.
Great food with attention to detail and flavor pairings
ya the pasta was absolutely amazing. The server went out of his way to make sure we had everything we wanted. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Italian food.
Delicious. My husband and I had a wonderful meal with great service. Everything we ordered from appetizers to dessert came out perfectly prepared, including all of our personal requests. I do not eat gluten or most cheese. The staff had no trouble accommodating my allergies and made sure everything I ordered was safe. The menu is largely gluten free (with gf pasta substitutes). I highly recommend the squid appetizer and the bolognese (6 hr bolognese, like Marcela Hazan’s recipe). My husband loved the Parmesan soufflé appetizer and gnocchi entree. There is a wide variety of menu choices, including meat, fish, and half/whole portions of pasta. The staff was very attentive without rushing us. Looking forward to dinner here again!
Pretty frustrating- one couple celebrating their 30th anniversary and the other couple visiting from Ontario we hadn’t seen for years. Ordered drinks at the bar while waiting for the table. They weren’t ready by the time we were seated and then it took 15 min to flag down a server to get/bring us our now warn martinis. Moving forward, we had to again flag someone down to ask for the sommelier only to be told that she was busy with another client ... um ok!?
It felt to me as though they had accepted more guests than they were prepared to serve. Not an acceptable scenario at that price point
Always great food, always great service. There’s a reason why they have been around for forever.
I loved my meal at CinCin! I sat at the bar as i didnt have a reservation. All of thecstaff eeregracious and welcoming. Great atmosphere and fantastic food. I had a pitato parmesan souffle which was perfectly prepared. So tasty! Confort food that is st the same time elegant. I had a phenomenal veal and pork with pancetta bolignese pasta that was very rich in flavor throughout every bite of pasta.I also ordered mezzuna stuffed with potatoes and parmesan in a oarmesan butter and cream sauce with hazelnuts and thought i died and went to heaven. And for desert 3 perfect chocolate, rasberry and passionfruit dcoops of housemade gellato. Loved this restaurant and definitely will go back!
Wonderful service and delicious food. Highly recommended!
Service was not up to top table standards tonight, however the beef cuts were presented perfectly.
Fabulous food and great drinks. Not seated on the patio but had a nice table near the corner. Restaurant was somewhat loud with people having fun! The smoked onion soup was like nothing I have ever tasted. We all sampled each other’s meals and there wasn’t one miss. We bought the cookbook! Would return here without hesitation.
Where to start, everything was truly above expectations. I’ve heard for years that gnocchis were little pillows of deliciousness, usually I find them to be more like mini perogies...not these , every bite was perfection! The servers recommended wines were just yummy, but every dish we had was so wonderful and the dessert something I never expected to experience on this continent.
Floating islands, a miracle of merengue, look it up!
God Bless the chefs, thank you!
Amazing!! Food, service, ambiance was excellent
Thank you! See you again soon! Richard Luxton Restaurant Director CinCin
Fabulous dinner, so very delicious! It was a perfect evening from beginning to end.
Very good! Great selection and fantastic ambiance.
The food was top notch and our waiter gave a great recommendation off the menu. The service staff was conversational and helpful in navigating the food and wine menus. Would definitely recommend CinCin for a date night or just an upscale dinner out on the town.
A very elegant spot for dinner. Excellent and friendly service. Superb wine list and wine service. Food is very good but not great. Competently prepared, but no wow factor.
Outstanding meal and service, was a very positive experience
So lovely, amazing service and amazing food
Absolutely. Never disappointed when dining at Cin Cin. This time our dinner experience was over the top.
The beet salad was an amazing starter. However, our main course which was the Arctic Char was the best we have ever had. The combination of the Char, mashed potatoes, grilled fennel, capers and topped with a very delicate sauce wow what an experience. We knew we had an amazing meal because we talked about it for days after. Thanks to the creative Chefs.
We had a very nice waiter and enjoyed the food. The only negative was that there were many stairs and no elevator. Due to my friends and I having physical difficulties, I couldn't recommend the restaurant to all of my friends. Based solely on food and service I could do so.
we always enjoy this restaurant. Great atmosphere and the wine list is extensive. Something for every taste. I has the linguini with seafood. Was not my favorite dish but the food quality was excellent.
A solid Italian restaurant. Nice room, very loud. decent service.
Food was okay, won’t be going back. The service was unprofessional and slow.
Our service was awesome, loved the quality of food. A bit pricey, two of us & our bill was $400. Amazing drinks
