I have been a patron of Osteria Napoli for several years. I have taken many visitors and we all agree it is the best italian food (homecooked) style in Vancouver and reasonably priced. They offer set menus ranging around $29.95 and up for 3 or 4 courses.
The best steamed mussels in town and excellent rack of lamb..you get an entire rack also the linguine a la vongole in a white sauce is to die for...just the right amount of sauce not creamy, and full of clams. The service is excellent as well. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Italy with the musician playing his accordian and singing english and italian oldies. Full of regulars the owners come around visits the tables making sure everything is fine. I love this place and highly reccomend it.

four of us were there for dinner at the sushi bar for the menu tasting @140.00 per person food only Not including drinks is totally outrageous...especially when the food did not consist of anything expensive...e.g bits of tuna, chopped scallops, crabmeat, avocado.....the only dish that was a bit different was a small piece of black cod baked in paper and the 2 stuffed morel mushrooms. There was absolutely nothing exquisite about the menu except for the presentation. the cooked dishhes were bland.
There was nothing on that tasting menu that could have totalled 140.00 per person. There was absolutely no service, we had to keep asking for drinks and not even once did they change our plates. The only thing that was positive about the place was the decor. Never to return for a fancied up sunomono salad and california roll. Overall it was a lay me down and take my wallet experience for close to $800.00 for 4 with 2 cold sakes and 4 hot sakes and a beer...UNBELIEVABLE
