    I will sorely miss Il Giardino. It was the restaurant that made me feel like a real Vancouverite. The history, the welcome, the room, the food, the delightful afternoon light…

  346. Il Giardino is a Vancouver Icon which we would love to try before it closes! Dineout supports and develops TASTE in Vancouver bravo!
