Our friends invited us out to dinner and booked this restaurant. The food and service were very good. There was a wide selection of food and we had pasta and meat dishes which were excellent.

We had booked before arriving in Whistler on the recommendation of friends. Good move as this place is popular and rightly so. Great meal of better than average "white table cloth" style Italian with a great wine list to match. Really attentive service, not cheap but quality was to match and we would definitely eat there again.

Restaurant with a great decor. The service is A++. All waiters is very attentive to our needs. All the food was really tasty. (Must try the entrée of Mozarella Di Buffalo). An exemple of good service, they separated the entrée for 2 without extra. The main course was also very good. Extensive choice of wines. I can't give 5 stars... More

Peak season at Whistler means you are highly encouraged to make a reservation wherever you dine. That being said, this restaurant was flexible enough to fit us in for an early dinner. The food was excellent and the service was very good. A bit more of a formal place.

Great meal, great ambiance and great service! My daughter and I shared a late night delicious meal which was graciously split and served on individual plates without up charge. Service was friendly and yet always professional. Have been dining at this restaurant for many years and always great!

We love this restaurant and it never disappoints. Have eaten here every year for 15 years. Started with a lovely aperol spritz, had the ahi tuna tartare followed by red snapper (the special) and then the tiramisu. My husband had the crab cakes followed by the veal parmigiana. We had a lovely Napa Cab Sauv. The bread is great The... More

First night in Whistler, & we were added to the waitlist for Il Caminetto. Table was ready at the estimated time & lovely staff took our coats & settled us in. After reading about 10 reviews I wasn't expecting our dinner to 'wow' me, just expecting a nice Italian dinner. I ordered the grilled Calamari Salad, then the Lobster Tagliolini.... More

With it being my actual birthday, my husband made it a point of letting the staff know about it. My dessert plate of sticky pudding (which was DELICIOUS) had "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate and the piano player played several renditions of "Happy Birthday" to which several of the guests at other tables sang. It was a nice touch. The... More

Wonderful restaurant. Noise level is not high. You can have a conversation at normal voice, even when busy. Many gluten free options. Minestrone was excellent. Sea bass special also fabulous. Ahi Tuna was excellent. Wine selection was overpriced, nothing unusual for a nice restaurant, however. Wines were good. Service was outstanding.

A perfect place for a romantic dinner. Reservations are a must. Incredible food and the service was fantastic. The scallops were to die for. When in Whistler this restaurant is not to be missed.

Since it's 1981 debut, this restaurant remains King of the Mountain. Located in the heart of Whistler Village, Umberto Menghi's Il Caminetto expresses warmth and hospitality. Offering fine Tuscan cuisine at its very best accompanied by a large selection of international wines with the emphasis on Italian.

Come for fun, relaxation, or romance to this cozy dining room, rich with colour and Italian charm. In the summer Il Caminetto's patio is the perfect place to "see and be seen" along Village Stroll.
