I have to agree with the Georgia Straight’s declaration that Raviolino’s pasta is the ‘most original pasta’ in Vancouver. Earlier this week I had the Pistachio Nut Agnolotti with Gorgonzola Cream sauce and it may have been the best pasta I’ve ever prepared at home.
Fine, fresh pastaâ€”regular, organic, reduced carbâ€”all made right in the store. Superb prepared dishes that taste great, even from frozen. Innovative culinary crossbreeding (Italian-slash-Peruvian), thanks to the union of owners Giuseppe and Marie Frasca. A varied deli selection, bulk and catering services, a room full of spotless machines designed to compel pasta into marvellous shapes or entice it to bond with exotic South American flavours: this is the kind of alchemistic combination that makes Vancouver an interesting modern city.
Check out Raviolino’s the next time you’re over at MacFourth.
