For chef Pino Posteraro, owner of Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill and Enoteca, cooking is a truly personal passion. “We are a highly versatile restaurant," he explains. "I love to take local seasonal ingredients and personalize them.”

Pino opened Cioppino’s in 1999, and still works on the line nightly, whipping up creations like his Gold Medal winning porcini and chestnut zuppa or the signature Cioppino medley of sustainable fish and seafood bouillabaisse. On many nights, diners request a chef-prepared menu degustazione (tasting menu), which is created in the moment and cooked by Pino himself.

Pino's interest in cooking and southern Italian hospitality was inspired by his mother at an early age. As an only child of an aristocratic family, she was sent to train with professional chefs to cook for her family. “I have seen masterpieces going through her hands,” Pino recalls. “She made a virtue of necessity: six kids, grandchildren and Mom always accommodated everyone’s needs.”

Today, Cioppino’s upholds this philosophy; guests at the Yaletown dining room are treated like old friends rather than anonymous diners. “We rarely say no to a patron’s requests. It’s as though they are at my home,” Pino says warmly.

Hip places to sip on a glass of wine in Vancouver's Yaletown

Hip places to sip on a glass of wine in Vancouver's Yaletown

The only thing to remember when visiting Cioppino's is to arrive very hungry and very thirsty. After that, the rest is entirely up to you. You can go ahead and pair chardonnay with Pacific octopus, a full-bodied Italian red with wild Alberta boar or even turn things on their head by combining a fresh French riesling with Tuscan-style rib eye – all you have to do is say the word and it’ll happen. Just save room for a Sicilian cannoli for dessert.

Upscale Italian restaurants in Vancouver

Named for the rustic seafood stew cobbled together by fishmongers, this Yaletown institution is anything but casual dining. Known for his high quality meats, Chef Pino Posteraro has been dazzling diners in his Tuscan restaurant and enoteca since 1999. Practicing “cucina naturale” and steeped in the Mediterranean tradition, Chef Pino uses nothing but the freshest ingredients. His wine cellar is something to behold, so even if you can’t afford that $1,200 bottle of Amarone, at least admire it on its shelf.
