The meals are about $12-16 and come with bread, soup, ice cream, and coffee. You can't beat that price. Great selection in dishes and friendly staff. Please note that you might need to make a reservation because it is always packed.

Despite the decoration, which does not remind traditional italian Cantinas, the dishes are quite good and the service is very friendly and casual. Plus you will be at no risk of leaving hungry.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

As noted above, there is street parking in Gastown, though it's usually busy. At Abbott and Cordova there is a big Easy Park lot with plenty of parking. That's probably a 3 minute walk away.
