Just down the hill from the CIFF gala opening party at Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, Pulcinella serves Fellini-worthy Italian food in a sociable setting. Neapolitan pizza is the house specialty, but the menu also features plenty of pasta dishes from gnocchi al pomodoro to fettuccini with wild mushrooms. Sharable antipasti dishes include steamed mussels, ahi tuna with bread and black truffles, and a meat-and-cheese platter.
Thin crust pizzas prepared in the wood-fired oven of an open kitchen make Pulcinella a great place to take kids. They’ll love watching their pizzas being made and crave them all the more once they arrive at the table.
Sunday evening ought to be about friends, family and plenty of food. A fun, sociable atmosphere, comfortable surroundings and superbly shareable dishes make dining out at these restaurants a festive way to wrap up your weekend.
