Located in the heart of Yaletown, Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill is known for its equal commitment to quality culinary experiences and excellent service, making it a favourite among locals, visitors and industry experts.
Italian Chef Giuseppe (Pino) Posteraro opened Cioppino’s in 1999 upon relocating to Canada. A two-time Vancouver Magazine Chef of the Year, Posteraro is best known for the impeccable balance he brings to every plate, particularly his exceptionally light pasta dishes. In addition to the delectable locally-influenced menu, a thoughtful wine cellar offers one of the largest selections in the city—with vintages available by the glass and by the bottle—honouring the Mediterranean emphasis on wine as a fundamental part of any meal.
Cioppino’s—named the city’s Best Upscale Italian Restaurant by Vancouver Magazine for twelve years running—captures quintessential Mediterranean hospitality with a warm atmosphere and inviting open kitchen layout. Sister restaurant Enoteca doubles Cioppino’s offerings with a second large outdoor patio, open-show kitchen, full-service dining room and private function room located right next door. Together the two spaces serve thousands of diners each week.
No matter the acclaim Cioppino’s receives year in and year out, Posteraro’s recipe for success remains simple: “Creative meals, excellent service and a relaxed environment where we can have fun!”
