Il Giardino review Rate it

The owner is known simply as 'Umberto' - a one-name wonder who put Tuscan cooking on the map in Canada. At one time he had 17 restaurants, but currently presides over four (two in Vancouver, two in Whistler), plus a cookery school/hotel/vineyard south of Florence. His first venture on the West Coast, Il Giardino, in a venerable yellow house with a lovely garden patio, opened in 1973. Umberto's hearty grilled meats and simple pastas, still referred to as 'new' Italian continue to draw a well-heeled business crowd.
