Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Fraser Valley duck 2 ways
$$$$, Italian, Mediterranean, Downtown
"Everything at this luxe establishment is expertly prepared, but I love the duck. Chef Pino dry-ages, air-dries, marinates, spit-roasts, sous vides, and caramelizes the skin of the duck breast for magically tender and perfectly pink results. The legs are confited and pressed into a terrine. It's fantastic technique made to look effortless."
$$$$, Italian, Mediterranean, Downtown
"I love the pappardelle with veal cheeks and fresh porcini mushrooms. The simplicity of this dish is that the pasta is handmade and the mushrooms are hand-picked to give it its delicious aromas and flavours."
$$$$, Italian, Mediterranean, Downtown
"It's really hard to pick just one dish from chef Pino's repertoire. It's all delicious. Cioppino's has a beautiful grand room, excellent service, and consistent quality, ingredient-driven creations."
