It was our first time to try out Caramba, Jodie was our server. She was knowledgeable of the menu and checked on us regularly to make sure we were enjoying. The pesto pasta and the prosciutto pizza was super delish. Can’t wait to come back...and try out other dishes!More

Well-balanced, delicious and filling. Good price point. The pork ragu was particularly impressive. Will definitely be back.

Interesting menu with good portions and reasonably priced food. Highly recommend the calamari and the pizzas. Place was bustling and a little too cramped for my taste (though if you are a bigger group you will have a little more space). Apt and friendly service...by very busy wait staff. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Whistler main village or Blackcomb upper village areas.More

I ordered delivery supper for myself and my husband. I ordered early because I understood that the kitchen would get very busy on New Years day. I was excited to try the crispy lamb pizza. I requested NO JALAPEÑOS. It came loaded with jalapeños. I...was worried when I saw that the box was oozing oil. The pizza was so heavy and dripping with oil that it was inedible. So disappointed!More

Hi Karen, I would just like to apologize once again that this pizza was not up to our usual standards. We have of course refunded the full amount already, but we hope you'll give us another chance to redeem ourselves as the pizzas are normally...More

We went here last week with no expectations. The atmosphere, food and service were great. So we booked again the following week. Even better! The squid and prawn starters are amazing. Pork chop and red wine jus main are outstanding. Our server Jodi was fabulous....The best place in Whistler over a two week holiday of sampling everything it has to offer. Go!More

We usually have a meal at Caramba every year when we come skiing in Whistler and have found it to be consistently good. This year however the food went up in our estimations. The prawn starter has been changed up to a tasty mild curry...but still nice and garlicky sauce & the calamari starter is perfection itself. Gently pan fried without destroying the flavour or ruining the firm texture by rendering it rubbery. This followed by truffle Mac & cheese which is frankly sublime & to die for & truffle pizza accompanied by the brussel sprouts which were a taste bomb! Have to try and replicate this at home! Potent lemony saltiness with capers & black olives which off set all that creamy truffle cheesiness of the main dishes we’d chosen beautifully. Would have those brussels to go any day.More

We stopped in on a sunny afternoon and were pleased that we were in time for the happy hour specials. Sitting right on the patio in the centre of the village was a perfect table and a great spot to watch the comings and goings...of the town. Delicious appetizers (had one of each offered on special - all were great) and a glass of wine. Served by Jodi who was attentive and friendly. Looked like a nice dining room and private patio for full dining so we'll be back.More

My favourite for a wood oven baked pizza. The mushroom pizza and prosciutto ones are a must try!
