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.

Typical great meal at the Poor Italian. I will eat there again soon. Hopefully, when the Covid panic subsides and we can return to being normal human beings! Thank-you Ian Wylie

Atmosphere and food was good. We found that we had to call for a waiter every time we needed something. Service wasn't forth coming.

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful meal. The service was excellent and the quality of the dishes were as authentic as we have ever had - including our visits to Italy. The seafood sauce flavour was throughout the linguini and cooked perfectly al dente. The veal marsala was tender with a smooth and tasty sauce. We will definitely return.

Very good distancing procedures. Customers need to be reminded about masks going to/from washrooms. Excellent food and service as usual. Bruschetta was a highlight as was special ravioli.

A wonderful meal, amazingly service. Only criticism is that my veal marsala was a bit too salty and I add salt to my cooking so if I noticed it, it was too salty, but delicious otherwise.

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.
