Upon the recommendation of the hotel's concierge, we dined at Cioppino's, located in the Yaletown of Vancouver. This is an upscale Italian restaurant that serves excellent food. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were placed in the wine room, which was very nice. The music being played throughout the restaurant’s audio system was a soft jazz, and that too was enjoyable. My wife had the off-menu zucchini blossom for a starter, followed by gnocchi with a light tomato sauce, and accompanied with a glass of Conte Vipera from the Umbria area of Italy. I selected the lobster bisque for an appetizer, followed by a veal porterhouse with an excellent pepper sauce. As for wine, I had a Barbera from the Piedmont area, which was very nice. This was a very nice dining experience. Our helpful and attentive server had the restaurant receptionist call us a taxi to take us back to our hotel, and it came within a few minutes. This is a fairly expensive and popular restaurant; reservations are recommended.
