Food is amazing. Just the right amount of smoke - never overpowers the other flavors. They understand balance. Don't miss the tagliatelle with ragu and the close -to -perfection lemon pistachio dessert. Service is traditional ;very professional, but not stuffy and not over- friendly either. Would recommend without hesitation.

The service was excellent! The wine list is expansive and the Sommelier was most helpful in selecting a wine that paired with our food selection. The pork loin and the lamb were grilled to perfection.

This was always a favourite dining spot, but haven't been back for quite a while, We were pleased that it was as good as we remembered, as we brought out of town guests. All our meals were tasty, especially the parmesan soufflé! It won't be so long before we go back.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here, and I must say, it was an overall disappointing experience. Although the restaurant itself is beautiful, and the service was good, the food quality suffered, and in my opinion, above-average priced Italian food should always be delicious. We began with two appetizers: the beat salad and the squid. The beat salad was very good, but the squid arrived lukewarm and was completely flavourless. In addition, the borlotti beans did not compliment the dish whatsoever. For the main course, we chose the lobster linguine, and the risotto. The risotto was quite tasty, but the linguine was sub-par. Although the pasta itself was cooked perfectly (al dente), the tomato sauce was nothing special, and it completely overpowered the flavour of the lobster. On a positive note, the elderflower kakkoii cocktail was fabulous, and the wine we ordered was good. Unfortunately the cons in regards to the food outweighed any pros for us, and for that reason, we will not be returning to CinCin.

We were somewhat disappointed after hearing good things about CinCin. It took a long time for our drinks to be served. The pasta dishes (2 types) were OK, but not outstanding, though the duck was very good. Perhaps we didn't choose the best entrees.

The food and service are first class. Absolutely terrific wine list. Food is tasty and well prepared. The pork tenderloin dish was excellent. Linguine with lobster was amazing. The house made chocolates for dessert are fabulous. Tiramisu is a close second. All staff made us feel very welcome. We highly recommend CinCin and will be back. Great job.

Attentive service, a lovely menu and a fantastic Florentine rib eye steak. In downtown Vancouver on a lovely street where the trees are lit up when dark. Up a flight of stairs and has a terrace. The kitchen is open. We visited a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the meal: both the food and atmosphere.
