Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill
Italian Cuisine from one of Vancouver’s Premier Chefs
ARGUABLY ONE OF THE FINEST ITALIAN RESTAURANTS IN CANADA, Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill & Enoteca has been dazzling guests for over ten years with i ts meticulous approach to dining. Perennial winner of Best Upscale Italian by Vancouver Magazine, Cioppino’s was also awarded Restaurant of the Year in 2009 by the same publication, in addition to one of the top 10 restaurants in Canada by Maclean’s magazine. They have also been awarded 3 stars by the Where To Eat in Canada Guide. Guided by the vision of Executive Chef and owner Pino Posteraro, the goal is to create personalized Italian and Mediterranean dishes using the best of local produce. This dedication to excellence has even earned Cioppino’s recognition by the Italian Government for commitment to quality Italian food and hospitality outside of Italy.
Although many of the restaurants dishes have been on the menu for years (4 hour-braised Veal Cheek Pappardelle is a must-order), seasonal creations are rot ated throughout the year, showcasing the best products in their peak of freshness. Local BC Spot Prawns are served with a caramelized crustacean jus, while house made Salami Calabrese showcases the fine charcuterie skills of the kitchen.
Nearly as impressive as the offerings from the kitchen are those from cellar. With close to 45,000 bottles spanning 3,500 labels, the list has been recognized again and again as one of the best in the city. Most recently awarded a Platinum honor from the 2013 Vancouver International Wine Festival, it’s a collection to make even the most distinguished of connoisseurs weak at the knees. Cult bottles from Harlan Estates and Screaming Eagle in Napa Valley sit side by side with the best of Italy, France, in addition to many wines from British Columbia’s esteemed Okanagan Valley. Whatever your taste, be it wine or food, Ciopinno’s is committed to providing one of the very best dining experiences in Vancouver.
