My wife and I had the occasion to visit Tramonto at the River Rock this weekend. We asked another couple to join us.
I can’t say enough good things about this establishment. We’ve visited several times a year for a few years now and have yet to be disappointed. Saturday was no exception. What really impresses me, aside from the food and wine, is the knowledge of the staff. When you ask a question about an item on the menu you’re provided with details, not just an overview. What the item is, how the chef prepares it, the accompaniments, etc.
Two of us had the arancini and two of us had the scallops, as appetizers. Hot and well presented, cooked to perfection. For the mains, two of us had the cannelloni, one had the pork chop, and one had the beef tenderloin. Again, cooked to perfection. I couldn’t decide on a wine so I asked our waiter if I could provide him with an upper limit of what I was prepared to spend, would he pick the wine. He knows my tastes in wine and said it wouldn’t be a problem. He was right on. I’ve got a new wine of the month now.
I can’t think of a better fine dining experience in the Richmond area, or Vancouver for that matter, just hop on the Canada Line and you're right there. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food, extensive wine list…oh, and the views. Get a window seat and enjoy a sunset… or 2 or 3. You won’t be disappointed.
