this is a really good Italian restaurant with a little urban twist. Compares to other Italian restaurants that promoting "portion size", "family style", or "authenticity", Pacifico is definitely a modern Italian restaurant that offers modern ambiance, right amount of portion size, delicious qualify dishes, five-star service, and of course, reasonable prices (at a location in the heart of downtown Vancouver, I consider the pricing is reasonable).
I ordered Gnocchi with seafood and roasted galic mushroom sauce (5 or 6 large prawns, 5 or 6 large scallops). the sauce was divine, and the Gnocchi was chewy and freshly made, so good..! my friend ordered veal tortellini with Italian sausage and tomato sauce, which was also delicious!
I love the size options (u can order a regular sized dish or with 4 or 5 dollars less for a smaller-sized).the only thing should be remembered next time is to remind the server if you would like the smaller-sized option. (the server doesn't ask if we would like the smaller-sized or regular-sized, so we both got the regular-sized). we both got the regular-sized pasta, but I think next time will order the smaller options cause we couldn't finish our plates. our server always came over refill water, checking food quality, and taking away finished dishes.
Overall, we had a good time at Pacifico Restaurant and will go back again.
