Curious Cafe & Bar Norcino
The Curious interior, designed by proprietor Luigi Coccaro and designer Rhonda Lebedoff, reflects the hip sensibilities urban area's while also paying tribute to Kelowna's storied past. Adding to the mystique of the setting is the location's history, as it used to be a run-down tobacco shop, now transformed into a warm hang out.
The multi-room restaurant offers the choice to eat comfortably on the café side where one may watch the art of cooking as it occurs in the open-kitchen room or sit on the community table side where 16 beers flow from our rotating taps.

Fantastic service and food with amazing music to top it off. Also very happy to see more than one non-alcoholic option on the menu, other than the standard mock-tails. Will definitely be back again.
Pizza was amazing, great selection of beer. Only complaint was that we waited an hour for our pizza!!
Music was lights out and food and service was also great
Food was excellent but the live music was so loud we found ourselves yelling across the table to converse
Our waiter was just such a lovely Italian man, but the service was slow. I’m not sure if it was the kitchen, or maybe they didn’t expect to be so busy but we saw other diners getting impatient in our area. The Okanagan pizza was delicious, highly recommended choice, truffle fries were just fine, Ceasar salad was pretty good but not memorable. We did really like the atmosphere, very chill with good music on the backyard patio.
Loved the courtyard outback and the fact that it was dog friendly was an added bonus. Everything was excellent from the food, drinks, service down to the entertainment! We've booked a table for next week again!
I Love the Curious but haven’t been to the patio since covid started. Unfortunately I was not impressed with their covid protocols. The tables were barely far away enough from eachother with no clear path to walk. There were 5 tables seated near us, all of whom knew eachother and who would periodically get up and visit eachother at different tables, hugging and chatting. This was not stopped by staff. Near the end of our dinner a DJ started playing quite loud music, which is also against the rules and made the rest of the dining experience uncomfortable. I’ll just keep getting takeout.
Hello, Sorry that this was your experience. We had a staff meeting yesterday to discuss this. We did talk to the groups inside, and understand we should have called authorities to assist. We can only do our best to control our guests, we discussed this with the staff. Comfort and health is a priority and we apologize we let this slip. With indoor dining now, this will ease crowd control. Please reach out via email email@example.com as we would love to take care of your next take out.
Staff were super friendly and attentive, service was fast with good communication along the way. I did feel really cold! Thought the patio area was heated but our table was not anywhere near the heat lamps.
Great night! A few hiccups with service but all in all not many complaints. Came to hear Joshua and learned only the day before that he wasn’t performing. Booked again next week, Wednesday this time to hear him play.
Fantastic pizza, great to see live music!! Awesome service
The DJ was a nice surprise. The pizza is always amazing and the servers are so friendly!
Food and service was good and friendly. Side sauce options were limited (eg no ketchup). Beverage components for menu drinks were out and notified after ordering (grapefruit juice for Greyhound menu item).
Delay is service as a result of training was shared at the beginning of the dining service.
Moving tables and turning on heat due to varied weather was accommodated. Thank you for that!
Waited a long time for our food, which wasn’t anything to write home about. Honestly not likely to go again except for the live music on the patio... the music was really good!
So incredible! Dayna was easily the best server I’ve had in a long time. She helped us decide what we wanted when we weren’t sure. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Absolutely delicious!!!
Their Pizzas are great but this time I had the burger and it was just "OK" . Social distancing was good and the servers wore masks. Good selection of beer on tap.
The pizza was amazing! The live music was great and not too loud so we could still have a conversation. We’ll definitely be back!
Perfect time to show up around 2pm on a Friday - excellent, fast service, chill environment, great music, AMAZING server! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed!
Had an enjoyable Valentine's Day evening. The 5 course feature was excellent and the live entertainment was first class. Good vibe and great service. Highly recommend.
Always love having breakfast here. Thanks for a lovely meal and great service!
We were in the back room of The Curious and it was very quiet for a special date night. Our food was good. We shared the prosciutto pizza and truffle fries. The pizza was outstanding and the fries were only so-so. Our server was attentive and helpful. When we exited the back room the main dining room was much more lively. It had DJ and we probably would have stayed a little longer if we were sitting in there. We enjoyed our meal and will be going back.
Love this cool cafe! We were treated to great service, great food, and live music! We definitely recommend 👌
Was a little too loud for my liking for when you are talking. Was live music was a really good solo guitar singer though!
Pizza was yummy and I noticed that they do these bubble meals on the patio. Will try to do this potentially next time as this was my first time there I will go back.
Always good food and service. Clean bathrooms and lots of space ;)
I had the house made bagel with smoked salmon, creamed cheese and capers with an egg. It was heavenly. I was delightfully surprised by the pickled onions on my side of greens.
Horrible vegan taco’s.
It was a Pleasure to enjoy some Live Music Once Again!
It was Joshua Songs that brought us in today!!
Everything was great there. Food was tasty. Good value. Great Covid protocol. Enjoyable meal.
Good food, good service, good menu, good beer. Will be back
The curious is a great spot that I regularly visit. In this visit, I had 5 business associates visit from out of town, and wanted to have a great meal with great ambiance. Curious never lets me down!
Great food! Great service!
Second time coming, great atmosphere. Foods pretty good too and the draft selection. Entertained my Sales Team here, all was very good. However when asking server her background and what brought her to Kelowna as a friendly interaction, the server unfortunately told us she had Covid previously and had to recover before coming to Kelowna and she's been in town for 3 weeks. Good intentions, but probably not the best conversation piece, especially while handing over the credit card terminal.
Absolutely loved sitting out on the patio! Great brunch - really enjoyed everything we had.
It was perfect!! Food was delicious , beers were good. Our server was really sweet and did a great job.
I will be back!
Amazing food, super friendly staff. Highly recommend
Super place and amazing pizzas - they haven’t stopped trying just because of Covid / patio is really cozy - bravo!!
Very good food. Our server, Jordyn was excellent. She went out of her way to find something on the menu that I could eat because of my garlic allergy.
The restaurant took appropriate steps keep customers safe from COVID-19.
Good food, great service.
Both ordered pizza and wine it was unreal and the bill was reasonable . Can’t wait to come back ! The patio is also a nice little touch.
The food was amazing! The service was good. The atmosphere is great for both couples and families.
