thee perfect spot to wine and dine...
|a taste of heaven:|
Pan Seared Foie Gras with a decadent, fruit jelly
with 4-hour braised veal cheeks and porcini mushrooms
|Garganelli "alla Norcina" |
(topped with a copious amount of Parmigiano-Regiano goodness)
|A lovely end to a lovely meal|
Fine service - Pino also wanders throughout the dining room ensuring patrons are enjoying themselves - seems like a nice man!
Definitely a place for celebrations and what not - although I thought the pricing of the pasta was fair
Nice, elegant looking dining room with red-bricked walls, oiled paintings and an open kitchen, noise level was a big louder than what I expected, which I preferred :)
Yay: Fine, wonderfully-executed Italian (and Mediterranean) cuisine, come here for the delicious pasta, their wine encyclopedia (!) and the romantic ambience
Nay: Yaletown - parking, $$$
***Interesting fact: Cioppino's has attracted some big celebrity names, like Jennifer Aniston, Bill Clinton...
