Birthday Celebration

Dined 4 days ago

The food is really good, but the service needs improvement. Especially the lady who greets you and seats you. Showed up 10 mins before my reservation to drop off my friends birthday cake, first the girl was hella rude first thing out of her mouth was party of one, even though i was standing there with a birthday cake, what happened to the warm welcome. Secondly i gave her specific instructions to put the cake in the freezer has it would melt, when the cake was served it was warm and drooping. When i came back with the birthday girl, the girl jst automatically assumed we were with this other group and started leading us there, when i told her no! i have my own reservation, she didnt even say anything went back and got the menus and started going upstairs. I would highly recommend you guys to put her in the back or somewhere, if the food wasn't good or the wonderful service our waitress provided i would not come bak here or recommend it to someone else.

QUICK STOP

Dined on April 20, 2016

I was meeting with friends for a quick bite and drink before the movie. The service was exactly what we needed, quick, friendly and super conscious of our tight timeline. Pizza was delish and the pear martini hit the right spot. This is my 4th visit here and I've had a good experience every time.

Dined on March 2, 2016

We went there for a quick bite before the movies. Their service was fast and efficient. We had the Tagliatelle Ragu and the Vesuvio pizza to share. They both came out piping hot and delicious. The pizza was a little on the greasy side, but otherwise good. The portions were decent that we were full and didn't have to pack anything home. It was very warm in the restaurant, the heat was probably emitting from their oven. Overall it was a good experience.

Not as good as I remembered

Dined on February 21, 2016

My husband and I live in Maple Ridge and made a reservation at 7:30 Saturday night for a romantic dinner. We had been there a couple years earlier. It wasn't overly busy, and everything arrived very quickly; we were in and out in less than 40 minutes (less than the drive there!). We ordered bruschetta, which didn't taste anything like other bruschetta I've had before as its focus was garlic; a Caesar salad, which seemed bland although light; and a Sicilian pizza, which was delicious and definitely the highlight of the meal. They were out of the first wine we ordered, but the second choice was good. The waitress and staff were young and efficient—too efficient, since everything felt rushed. We drove into Vancouver from Maple Ridge just to come back here, and neither the food nor the ambience were as good as we remembered. The pizza was still pretty fantastic though. We'll go here again if we are in town and want a quick bite, but won't make a special trip for a leisurely romantic dinner.

Delicious pizzas, tastes like being in Italy !

Dined on January 13, 2016

Our dear Italian friend introduced us to Pacifico. We had been hoping to find a truly delicious, Italian pizza place, and we are so happy we found this one :) The flavours are delightful and mouthwatering. The pizzas offer perfect combinations of ingredients and make for a medley of happy on your palate. If you want the best Pizza in Vancouver, this could very well be it.

Decent pasta

Dined on December 2, 2015

Pretty good pasta. It is next door to the movie theatre so it is handy for dinner and a movie. I think the food was good but not outstanding. The service was just fine, no complaints. It is quite noisy. I would go back for the convenience to the movies.

Best Pizza in Vancouver. Im a regular there and i have never being disappointed by them. Pacifico is always my first choice for dinner after a movie at scotiabank theatre. First time making a reservation from open table and it worked perfectly, no waiting time, no problem at all. The service is also great, always a nice, friendly and welcoming people working there.

Dined on November 7, 2015

We ordered the calamari for starter, it was one of the best decision that we've made. Not too salty and both sauce tasted great! My girlfriend ordered gnocchi tartufo and that was delish!! But I would eat it while it's still hot because once it gets cold, it doesn't taste that good anymore. Last but not least. I ordered Pacifico. That was the highlight of our dinner. Super thin crust is my favourite. I love how they cooked the pizza. A little bit chewy on the crust but that's how I want it to be.

Great value and good food

Dined on September 20, 2015

This is the 2nd time I went to Pacifico. It's a great restaurant to go to if you are going to the movie theatre or a downtown event (it's right near Scotia theatre). The salads are amazing for the price and very tasty. We had the spinach salad and the caprese salad. Both were very ample and under $10 and were excellent. We shared the truffle gnochi, which was delicious, as the last time we went, we were only able to eat under half of the pasta. The service was very good. Definitely a restaurant worth visiting as long as you don't mind noise as it is quite loud.

My girlfriend and I are very frequent at Pacifico, but that was the first time we used the online reservation, as we were a group of 7. Everything was awesome, from the booking to the final bite. Our regular server, Brianne was very patient (as we had a hard time choosing the pizzas and closing the bill) and helpful.

Rushed

Dined on June 25, 2015

We had reserved a table for 3 at 7.30, and we shown to a table upstairs. Our order was taken, unfortunately the main course, pizza, was brought to the table when we were only half way through our starter. The waitress did not seem to acknowledge that this was not appropriate and I had to speak to the staff. There was no apology and therefore no tip.

I was in Vancouver to see a friend, and do some sightseeing, and felt like some Italian food. This restaurant had good ratings, and was very near my hotel, so I decided to give it a try. Very pleasant service, was quickly seated in a nice table, and was pleased with the Chicken Parmesan I ordered. The bill was moderate. I'd happily return.

Dined on April 16, 2015

A friend and I went for a quick dinner before a movie. We shared the appetizer bruschetta (amazing, fresh and a large serving for just two people), we also split the house salad (their house dressing is amazing and it the salad wasn't soaked in it), and we had the pollo rustica pizza (great fflavour, nice thin crust). We were really happy with the food and drinks we had. Everything here is reasonably priced and we left absolutely stuffed.

I had requested booster seats in my open table reservations. The hostess either didn't read the reservation or care to offer. despite that after seeing my 2 children she didn't ask either. She didn't seem to want to be there in any event. The food was average and the gnocchi was chalky. I wouldn't go back again.

Excellent Pasta & Pizza

Dined on February 6, 2015

Great service and excellent food and the price is very reasonable. The food is so much better in taste, presentation and price compared to other a nearby italian restaurant that charges triple for less. I don't like being able to count the number of lettuce leaves in my salad and I especially don't like it that there's only four lettuce leaves. Pacifico's salads, pasta and pizzas are generous and delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!
