Fodor's Expert Review CinCin
$$$$ Downtown Italian
Gold walls, terra-cotta tiles, and a crowd-pleasing modern Italian menu make this Tuscan-inspired restaurant appropriate for a business meal, a romantic tête-à-tête, or a relaxing dinner after a long day. The heated terrace, shielded with greenery, feels a long way from busy Robson Street below. Inside there's a lively scene around the hand-carved marble bar where ingredients for martinis are French-pressed to order. The food, from the open kitchen and the wood-fire grill, changes seasonally, but might include roast halibut paired with fava beans and grilled zucchini, rack of lamb with roast tomatoes and heirloom beans, and ricotta and Parmesan ravioli with spring pea tips and artichoke mustard. Pastas are all made in-house and are a must-order item, either as a taster or full meal.
