La Piazza Dario Ristorante Italiano
Blog by Bettina Reid | February 7th, 2013
I was so excited, this was the 1st year we had the opportunity to get out to some of the restaurants in Dine Out Vancouver.
This past weekend we took friends of ours out to dinner at La Piazza Dario's Ristorante Italiano in the Italian cultural centre just a few minutes from downtown Vancouver. We had never been but our friends raved about it, so we thought we'd try it out. We were definitely impressed with not only the food but the impeccable service. The decor is a little dated, but as long as you can get past that you will be pleasantly surprised. Their food was just like an Italian Mama's good cooking. Brought me back to when I was a little girl, where I grew up just outside of Toronto where I was surrounded by Italian Mamas that all wanted to fatten me up "Mangia, Mangia". What child wouldn't love being offered delicious food every time they visited.
My girlfriend and I tried the Dine Out 3 course menu and really enjoyed our Red Snapper...one of my favourite types of fish to eat. Where the men went for meat and pasta. Every last bite from appetizer to dessert was absolutely delicious.
I highly recommend La Piazza Dario's Ristorante Italiano next time you are looking for good Italian food. Now we have 2 great Italian restaurants to choose from La Piazza Dario's Ristorante Italiano and the Poor Italian .
