We were staying just up the street at the Marriott Residence Inn the night before a cruise. As a family of 12, we needed a dinner spot that was close, not too fancy and could satisfy kids and adults. Oh and we needed a spot for 12 with only one hour notice.
No problem for Giardino. They took us and handled everything superbly. Excellent service and really good food. Highly recommend the calamari appetizer and the linguine and clams.

We just got in to town and after unpacking, went looking for a place to eat. Giardino was right next to our condo but we assumed that we needed reservations. We walked in and asked if we they had any tables available for 6:00. They said that they were booked, but that they would find a table for us. When we went back at 6, they seated us almost right away. We found the service to be very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent as was the wine. The lasagna was very good and was the perfect portion. The salad, which was the special, had a nice lemon vinaigrette with fresh greens. It is a bit pricey, but worth it for a special night out while on vacation.

We visited Giardino during our road trip of BC and Alberta. We’ve eaten at many restaurants along the route but this one was by far the best. Starters and mains were perfection, so much so we had to sample a dessert, granted all three of us shared it as we were so full but it was a divine cheesecake. Service was impeccable from Erenee, she was super efficient, had a sense of humour and chatted to us genuinely about our trip. We recommend anyone to visit, it isn’t the cheapest place but it’s a classic example of, you get what you pay for. Well done all,
Iain, Anita and George (visiting from England)

This place isn't cheap yet if you are craving Italian, want to have a romantic dinner, this is a good choice. Gluten free pasta also available, however if you are celiac bring your own bread (they will let you do this and serve it warm to you). The wine menu is very good although be prepared to increase your tab to get a good bottle.
