"Enjoyed a wonderful dine out dinner. The owner was very friendly. My Caprese salad and Ling Cod were wonderful. The house special tiramisu was most delicious. Great for families. It was my brother's birthday and he had the creme brûlée. Everything was delicious."

"Upon arriving the hostesses were very friendly, our server was great - the Dine Out menu looked good. My food was alright but my partner's (whose family owns a restaurant and has been in the industry for 30 years) definitely was not. The soup salty, the pasta rubbery and dry the tiramisu water logged.... You would think that with a Dine Out menu that you are wanting to make new customers; the food would definitely not make us come back. The exceptionally over priced wine - would not make us come back. The fantastic service unfortunately would not makes us come back BECAUSE when you go out to eat you want the meal to be just as superb.
We had heard from friends the food was quite good and were told to except the wine to be overpriced... Perhaps it was an off night?!?
We really were hoping for so much more..."

"We frequent at Poor Italian on other dinner occasions and with each visit, we found the food to be very good. But for the recent dine out experience, we were a bit disappointed with the dinner as the dinner set value, and the dishes did not seem to be up to the quality standard we have come to expect and enjoy.
The prawn linguine was too rich and dry with the thick sauce, and the prawns were a bit over cooked, and the vegetables more salty than usual. Even our beloved tiramisu seemed to be overly soaked with sauce thus each bite was a bit soggy.
Not sure if it was just an off night, but am hoping if we return after dine out, that the experience we've had found from before will be back again."

"The food at the Poor Italian is generally very good - it is one of my favourites in town. However, I have to say, we had very, very poor service on our last visit. We were a group of 5 for dinner for a birthday. The restaurant was almost empty. When the wait staff were told that none of our group would be drinking wine for the evening, we were told to hurry up and order all of our meal at once, because it would be a busy night because of dine out Vancouver. Needless to say, there was only one other table arrived during our whole visit, and the place was almost empty on a Sunday night. My guests questioned my choice of restaurants, not because of the food, but because of the poor way we were treated by the staff. Not only is it unlikely that I will be returning, I doubt very much any of my guests will be returning either."

"For $40 pp - one would expect better quality and taste of food
Appetizers were good , the only entree that was good was the ling Cod... Desserts were a major let down- old puff pastry and overly bitter tiramisu

"I recently took my mom to the Poor Italian prior to heading downtown for a show. We shared a starter, a pasta dish, and a dessert - all of which were very tasty! The service was fabulous. Attentive but unobtrusive. The noise level was comfortable with music in the background but quiet enough to have a conversation. We'll definitely be back sooner than later!"

"The food was delicious, the key waiters were full of contempt and made us feel unwelcome. It's difficult to say whether or not I would recommend this restaurant as there is great food all over the city. The Poor Italian is about the whole experience, and while our party enjoyed a lovely evening out, the inhospitable service from the key/head waiters was not necessary but nonetheless indulged in by those in charge. The side service staff were delightful, and the food was delicious. Some dishes were among the best I can remember ever tasting."

"We went to there primarily because we like to try new places and we had driven by it so many times we thought it was time to go. Service was very good, ambiance was terrific, staff were attentive and the food was served hot and tasty. We have already recommended this to friends."
