All the good reviews that I have read about this property are true. The friendliness of the staff seems genuine. I have never seen such good customer service.

The service was great! I was not impressed w/ the food. It's average and over priced. Next time I would keep driving into Vancouver and enjoy a restaurant w/ better food and view.

A great Italian meal.

My family and I have driven by this restaurant daily since it opened. The parking lot is full everytime we drive by and now we know why. The ambience is great and the food is even better. We had an antipasto platter for two (there were four of us) and the Caprese salad...the bocconcini were perfect. My daughters had the pasta with cream sauce, I had the rigatoni with sausage, eggplant in red sauce and my husband had the lamb. The food was fresh and well presented. Now the dessert...millefolgie with lemon and caramel drizzle. It was delicious. The service was great. Just enough attention to get what you need and to feel taken care of and enough quiet time to enjoy a family dinner. I would totally recommend this restaurant if you want a great Italian meal.

The service couldn't have been more attentive but not overbearing - our waiter had an excellent sense of humor and was very charming - they are doing an amazing job of maintaining a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere in what must be very trying circumstances. I had the fish special which was delicious and a huge portion - had leftovers today and it was every bit as tasty as it was last night. Great evening out!

My wife and I enjoyed a terrific romantic dinner with excellent friendly, professional services whilst also making us feel as family. The 5 coarse meal was perfectly spaced apart so we were able to enjoy every delicious mouthful that by the time we got through dessert and our aperitif 3 enjoyable hours had passed 😁. Thank you so much for the outstanding experience, See you soon! Stay safe and healthy, Sincerely, Steven Soriano

Our favourite Italian restaurant. The service is gracious, friendly but not overly so...the food always spot on. Have tried many things on the menu - and have never been disappointed. Portions are a good size - you won't leave hungry. Definitely a good choice to impress family, friends or work colleagues.

Although we have always enjoyed PI unfortunately I can't say our dinner was up to PI regular status. Our server smelt of smoke and the food quality was lackluster.

This was our first time dining at Poor Italian. It was by far one the best dining experience and delicious meals we’ve had in a while dining out during the pandemic. We felt 100% safe. The service was fantastic with attentive staff which made our dining experience when more enjoyable. We will back soon.

Excellent atmosphere and food! Tables were nicely spaced out, server/manager were attentive. The bone marrow was heaven. It's very sad to see so many restaurants struggling during covid-19. Go support your local restaurants! They deserve your time and money!
