Great dinner with my wife and daughter. We had a burratta appy which was excellent and each of our main course meals were superb. Finished off with tiramisu that was very good as well. Will return here in the future.

After travelling all day we just wanted an appetising main course and a glass of good wine. Cin Cin ticked all the boxes. Our waiter's timing, attention to detail and service was superb without being overpowering. The food was excellent too. Fine dining at its best.

Well done! Tasty focaccia and mini rolls served with tapenade set the tone for a thumbs up dinner of squash blossoms, not-to-miss parmesan souffle and branzino. When we were too full for dessert, our
stellar waitress brought us bite-size chocolate cookies and apricot gelee for a final treat. Next time we'll know to ask for the sensational outdoor terrace with its views above the street!

Wonderful food although slightly on the expensive side.
My special Parpadelle truffles vegetarian dish was 36 Canadian dollars.
The wine list is also on the high price side although our server was great at recommending a wonderful Sardinian wine around 50 Canadian.
All in all very nice experience, and friendly staff.

In all the years I've lived and dined out in Vancouver, for some inexplicable reason I've never been to CinCin. And I love Italian food! Finally a friend suggested we go. I was delighted. Everything we had was great. The highlight was the stuffed Zucchini blossoms as an appie. Also have never seen this dish before. You must try it!

Our server made the overall experience. He was professional yet friendly. His great attitude enhanced the meal—which was fab. We all enjoyed our meals from the tomato salad to the shared dessert. Melt in your mouth pasta! Tender tuna (in an amazing sauce), chicken & duck!
His wine recs were spot on. We believed he had a future in broadcasting— with a such a melodious voice! He excelled in hospitality and in being unnoticed. Keep him—mgt! He represents the entire staff perfectly.

My wife and I celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. The staff was very pleasant and professional. We has an excellent evening.

The only drawback was the lack of an elevator to get to the dining room. We are both in our senior years and it was difficult getting up the stairs.

We recently celebrated a my in-laws 46th Wedding Anniversary at CinCin. From the second we walked into the restaurant we were greeted and welcomed by every staff member. One of the managers came over to our table, presented them with a card and wished them a happy anniversary. This was totally unexpected and a pleasant surprise. While making our reso we noted that we celebrating a 46th anniversary. The service the entire nite was top notch. Our server was attentive and very prompt. He recommended a fantastic Cab Sauv that went great with our meals. Our party consisted of 2 vegetarians and they were both so pleased with all of the options they had on the menu. The zucchini blossoms were absolutely amazing as was the burrata and chickpea fritter was super tasty and filling, fusilli with preserved tomatoes had such wonderful flavour. The tenderloin was cooked to perfection, seasoned so well, and all the sides were excellent. The salmoriglio (chimmichuri) was lovely. The branzino was cooked perfectly and tasted even better. Tiramisu... the best in the city. Overall experience at CinCin was excellent and we are already looking forward to our next evening there. Have no problem recommending this restaurant.

Great experience. We sat at the patio outside and it was lovely. The flavors of each dish we tried were exceptional. Some dishes were a bit towards the salty side for our taste but i think that can also depend on the personnal preference. The service was inpecable and it is a great choice for a special occasion or just an evening out.

Service was slow. They ran out of special ... but if they had cone by our table earlier, they might have had it. We ordered it and then they came back later to say they had run out. When we needed to adjust the rest of the meal to accommodate, they were grouchy and did not help.

We had dinner as two couples. We were all very happy with the food and service with one notable exception. The ambient noise inside the dining room is much to loud. I think some acoustical treatment would be of huge benefit. We noticed all the surfaces (wall, ceiling, floors) were "hard" making every voice reverberate.

I would recommend eating on the verandah if for this one reason only. That is what we did on the previous occasion and it was much better for ambient noise.

The fabulous Cin CIn was fabulous once again!!
Dream team behind the very busy bar (thanks to Lisa and Shion).
We had scallop risoto and beet/orange pistachio salad.
Cin Cin's ingredients are always well sourced and super fresh which I love so much.
The meal made all the better with the wine advice from Richard and Shane ....I wish in my life time I would know 10% of what they know.....lucky for me they share their info ...haha ....great time was had.
Can't wait to go back again!

This restaurant was not on our list of places to eat when I was making all of our reservations for our 3 nights in Vancouver until my husband and I ate at their sister restaurant in Whistler. While this is a completely different restaurant, we were not disappointed. The food and service was great and our waiter assisted in picking out a fabulous bottle of wine to go with our different meals.

Most of the time when we visit Vancouver, we make time to eat at CinCin. It never disappoints. After a decade, it is still at once reliable and innovative (not an easy balance). The first time we ate there we were blow away by the new, fresh, imaginative approach to Italian cuisine -- and we still are. The servers are always attentive and friendly and the food is constantly changing to keep things interesting. Yet it is routinely delicious.

Before this visit we had eaten here 3 times and the food and service were always excellent. We decided to come here for our wedding dinner so I made an online reservation for our wedding date of May 27th, 2018 through the restaurant's website on May 11th. In the special notes section we wrote that we would like outdoor seating on the patio for our wedding dinner for 4 people. We received 2 email confirmations of the reservation and 1 phone call confirmation from Angelica. None of these confirmations mentioned that you can not request outdoor seating through reservations.

When we arrived for dinner we were shown to an indoor table so I let the host know that we had asked for outdoor. This was the first time that we were informed that you can not reserve outdoor seating. We were shown to the bar and waited for 40 minutes for an outdoor seat. Once we were seated outside for a table of 2 we let our server know that we had waited 40 minutes for the table and that it was our wedding dinner. She said that she had no idea but was very apologetic and went inside to speak with her manager. She returned about 2 minutes later letting us know that she had spoken with the manager and he would be out in 30 seconds to speak with us. After 15 minutes of waiting for someone to come speak with us my husband went inside to speak with the manager and ended up speaking with someone inside who informed him that they have it listed on the website that they do not reserve outside seating.

He returned back to the table and we finished our dinner and left. I'm so glad that our guests enjoyed their food because otherwise this visit would have been completely useless. We will never be coming back and we will not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
