CinCin Ristorante + Bar

  • Phone: 604.688.7338

A winding stone staircase leads upward from bustling Robson Street to this celebrated Vancouver dining room, recognized for its contemporary, Italian-inspired menu and award-winning wine cellar. The elegant marble bar is a central feature, accented by stone walls hung with original artworks, and punctuated with tall arched windows that open onto a year-round terrace. Housed in the private dining room, part of CinCin’s value-driven wine collection is on display: deep and global with rare vintages, boutique finds, and an extensive half-bottle selection.

An ingredient-driven, seasonal focus sets the tone for CinCin’s menu, with distinctive wood-fired dishes embracing the traditions of Italy.

Owen Knowlton and his service team choreograph unrivalled dining experiences, committed to their exemplary wine program and his own industry-leading service standards.
