Poor Italian Ristorante


The Poor Italian is an independent East Van neighbourhood restaurant. We're coming up to our 11th year at the corner of First and Rupert.


These unprecedented times have meant we've been forced to re-invent our dining experience. Much of our customer service revolves around pick-up and delivery now.

Whether you are joining us for dinner, ordering pick-up or delivery - we are happy to be back hosting neighbors and friends who seek an exceedingly good meal in a warm and welcoming environment. 

Thanks to our wonderfully supportive Hastings-Sunrise Neighbourhood and to all of our guests who come to see us from all over Metro Vancouver, The Fraser Valley and beyond. 

With strict social distancing practices in place and constant sanitizing of common areas, we would like to make you feel welcome again.
