We eloped to Whistler from Vancouver, and had had dinner at Il Caminetto. They went above and beyond to make us feel special, with lots of little extras. The food and service were wonderful - so glad we chose it for our big day.

What a fabulous evening! Food, service and ambience did not disappoint. Felt as though we had been transported to New York City. Other restaurants in Whistler need to follow suit and consider renovating/revamping as Il Caminetto has done.

Love this restaurant and wholeheartedly recommend it! (but see the second paragraph for a disclaimer) It was just my husband and me for this visit so we split the rib eye. Last time we were there we had four of us and shared the bistecca all fiorentina and were blown away. The rib eye was not as good, but our expectations were set too high for a different cut and preparation. A gentlemen beside us had the lasagna and reported it was superb. We shared the daily pasta special, which was a lamb ragu and it was delicious. The texture of the house made pasta was remarkable.. We also had the burrata with grilled pear antipasti. It was literally such a delight to behold. I know that sounds a bit over the top, but seriously, it was poetry to eat. The pear looked like a little forest floor. I would order it again just to look at it, but the house made burrata was very good in and of itself.
I have only one thing to say in the negative and if seems to be becoming the trend: the drink prices are ridiculous. My husband doesn't drink, so we don't get a bottle. Glasses of wine are only available as 5oz pours and then a half liter (about 31oz). So for 2 glasses of wine over the coarse of my dinner I added about $75 to the bill. And that was for entry level California cab.

I don't really want to write a review for this restaurant - it might become so popular that next time I
want to book I might not get a table!

It was a wonderful evening - delicious dinner, great service [ look out for the excellent Irish waiter] and

We were excited to try the newly remodeled restaurant. Our experience was mixed. The server was friendly but not attentive. She never apologized for the slow delivery of our appetizer or asked us how it was. The scallops were delicious but not very warm which spoiled it for me. I have a feeling it was sitting in the kitchen waiting to be brought to us.
The main courses were mixed. The fusilli pasta was undercooked but very hot. My dish was warm at best. We waited 15 plus minutes for it. The server did come by to say it would be out soon only to wait what would have been the typical amount of time for an order. There was clearly a problem with one of the dishes and it left a bad taste of our experience. I would have expected an apology and part of the meal to be comped.
Someone did come by with 2 glasses of lemoncello. Unfortunately, no mention of the problem was made and my husband does not drink.
My assessment is that they need more help in the kitchen and better training to know how to appropriately handle problems that inevitably arrive. I expect more from a restaurant of this caliber.

Had a great experience! Tastes like an authentic Italian meal! Definitely a little more expensive but worth it! Definitely recommend this place for a special occasion, a vacation wow meal, or a business meal! It was a busy Saturday night so service was a little slower but our server was wonderful and the food was amazing & better yet drinks were phenomenal!

The food was tasty, but the service was lacking. To begin with the service was slow. Then when our mains came, we were asked if we wanted any more drinks to which we said yes. They didn't arrive but managed to find their way onto our cheque. Disappointing as it has the potential to be a great restaurant but both times I've been we have found the service to be pretty poor.

Nice atmosphere. Upscale but not too upscale. Appetizers and desserts were amazing. Caesar salad and scallop dish. The blood red orange sorbet was fantastic. Hazelnut ice cream was very hazelnutty. We had pasta for mains - they were pretty rich but still good. We had just gotten married so we were treated with some complimentary bubbly. Enjoyed our experience.

Our party of four loved our experience at Il Caminetto! Stuart was our waiter and he did a great job of making recommendations and serving our table with great attention. We shared the porterhouse and sides amongst the four of us, as well as an upsized scallop appetizer and olives. We swapped out one of the sides for a nonstarch, which was happily done for us. The noise level was quite comfortable, which we appreciate so much with every passing year. There was a very large table of fairly intoxicated men across the room and it was not disturbing. We watched the coatcheck-exit mayhem with all these drunk guys and the staff handled it very professionally and as quickly as they could (none of the men could find their tickets). The ambiance and atmosphere were elegant yet relaxing. We can't wait to return!

Our dinner at Il Caminetto was wonderful. The food was incredible and the service flawless. Our group had several dietary restrictions and the server was knowledgeable regarding the dishes and if modifications were needed. When a dish came out incorrectly, it was fixed in what seemed like seconds. The extensive wine list is a wonderful mix of local features and international options. I'd highly recommend this as a dining destination in Whistler.
