My 2 daughters and I were spending the night in Vancouver and looking for a place to have dinner that was walking distance from our hotel. We found this place on Google Maps and so glad we did. We happened to go on a night that had half price pasta...Bonus. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was very quaint... More

Wanted to pay with a pre paid visa gift card but we're told they were not accepted. What's up with that. Was not happy with that. Change your policy please.

I wanted to like this place more. The initial vibe was right, but after I was seated the service was just 'meh' and then when my entree arrived and I was offered Parmesan for my pasta, it was in a jar. I would expect that from a take out pizza place, really disappointed.

Eating a meal at Ciao Bella has become a tradition for us when visiting Vancouver!! We love the ambiance. The staff are super friendly and provide great service. Live music most nights and we have never been disappointed with the musician. Ah...and, the food never disappoints!

Walking by on a rainy night, and noticed it was half price pasta night and decided to take a chance. It turned out to be a fun evening, with good food, great service, and great value. And a nice wine list too. A friend who used to live in the neighborhood later told us it was one of her favorites,... More

We have dined here several times. This is a comfortable and casual Italian Restaurant that has been in the West End forever. We are always greeted with a friendly and accommodating spirit. The pasta dishes are always enjoyable and the prices are fair. I particularly like going there, enjoying a Caprese salad, pasta, red wine and listening to the piano... More

Three of us had dinner here recently. It was a miserable rainy evening, but inside the restaurant was warm and inviting. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. Great value for a great dinner.

It is a small one room venue with a narrow outside patio for fair weather dining. The Italian owner offers authentic Italian cuisine and actually serves tables himself. The menu has 7 appetizers some hot some cold, 3 soups, 4 salads, 3 vegetarian dishes(although some of the other dishes may do for vegetarians too), 5 baked and stuffed pastas, a... More

We got a recommendation to come here by some locals. Food was wonderful, the service was awesome, and the ambiance was perfect for a quiet dinner. We sat by the piano, and the guy played great music that was not overwhelming or too loud. Our server called a cab for us, but it was not coming, so he went outside... More

Found this place by letting the availability of parking make the decision. My friend and I were the only customers, so the service was excellent, quick and friendly. We each had the 1/2 price pasta specials, which were enormous and tasty. The ambiance is upmarket and comfortable, and I could easily see coming back for an evening meal. Menu prices... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
