Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill & Enoteca
Chef/owner Giuseppe “Pino” Posteraro serves Mediterranean cuisine at Cioppino’s and its sister restaurant next door, Enoteca. Two large patios allow diners to watch Yaletown passerbys, while foodies sidle up to the two open show kitchens. Pino calls his style of cooking cucina natural — a classical style of cooking that emphasizes the use of only the freshest of ingredients. Flavors are clean and he’s especially noted for his light pasta dishes like tagliolini al granchio — handmade, thin egg pasta with Dungeness crab in a light tomato sauce. Cioppino’s serves ocean-friendly seafood choices, as well.
