Well, instead of answering that question, I'd like to present you with the Restaurant of the Year for 2009 as voted by Vancouver Magazine.
Restaurant Of The Year:
(Restaurant Awards 2009 | Vancouver Magazine)
"Bold, hearty flavours are the hallmark of Yaletown’s Cioppino’s (Gold), where chef Pino Posteraro’s pastas are always stellar (“pappardelle with four-hour-braised veal cheeks and porcini mushrooms will make you weep,” said one judge) and his succulent, spit-roasted duck breast with candied-orange reduction is cooked to juicy perfection. A stomping ground for Canucks, politicos, and corporate players, Posteraro’s room also caters private events for visiting celebs like Bill Clinton."
As an added bonus, below are some dessert pictures from a visit to Cioppino's.
