This would have to be the finest restaurant I have allowed myself to dine in.
Dungeness crab, Cioppino, foie gras, linguine lobster, .... all fabulous.
Service very professional.
Highly recommended.
Book ahead.

Cioppino's is really two restaurants. The first is the one represented by their standard menu: high-end Italian fare. The other is almost a secret known only to the initiated: modern European cuisine of the highest caliber served in a multi-course Chef's menu that is not written on any menu. The chef's tasting menu changes constantly so there's no point to asking questions - you just have to tell them what you can't/won't eat and then trust the Chef. And you really should. I've been lucky enough to have eaten at many Michelin-starred restaurants over the years and Chef Pino Posteraro is world class. Vancouver is incredibly lucky to have him.

Nice room and friendly service but that is it! Huge wine list - not many more than about 10 choices under $100; the food is marginal at best. Had the special Dungeness crab salad - only 3 or 4 small bits of crab (a major rip off)! I also had the AAA rib eye "alla Toscana" - it was small bits of beef and I am not sure it was AAA rib eye because it had no flavour! The vegetable sides came in VERY TINY dishes! Pino may be making lots of money but I would never go back. Steer very clear - there are so many other amazing restaurants in Vancouver this one will leave you nothing more than broke!

Essentially top class Italian food with a spicy twist makes this a delicious kitchen to eat from. I had squid ink gnocchi (divine) in a spicy seafood sauce. Exquisite. Then a bouillabaisse style fish stew. Again quite spicy and delicious.
We had three excellent Italian reds - a Chianti Classico Riserva, a Brunello and one other. Each so well selected. Our waiter, Gian Paolo, was charming and informative.
I would return to this well run established restaurant in a heartbeat.

One of the finest dinner experiences. Great seafood, really high quality pasta - we asked for an off menu spaghetti and the chef did a wonderful job of it. The wine list is great too. A must visit in vancover.
