AUTOSTRADA OSTERIA VANCOUVER MAIN Nomss.com food wellness blog canada

Autostrada Osteria is a casual osterie on Main Street, Vancouver between East 32nd and 33rd. The Co-Owner and Head Chef come from La Quercia, founder of La Pentola and co-owner of Cinara. The menu focuses on quality ingredients, fresh handmade pasta and few regional wines. The 30 seater room is tiny and you will often feel like you are “sharing” a table with the people to the left and right of you. I recommend making a reservation and requesting for the booth seat by the aisle.

The name “Autostrada” – is an expressway in Italy.

I came here with my University BFF to celebrate my birthday. To start, the creamiest and fluffiest burrata from Italy (MP) and house-baked daily Focaccia 6.

June is Italian Heritage Month. As a celebration to Mangia! Vancouver Cibo Trattoria has curated a special three course menu for $38 per person. The menu is selection is well rounded and offers a good mix of vegetables, protein and pasta choices.

Insalata Caprese: To start, we ordered this classic Italian salad with mozzarella di bufula, tomato, arugula and aged balsamico. I love how clean and fresh the ingredients are. Another Primi option was minstrone with nettle pesto and crispy ceci beans.

Bistecca: Never have we had second thoughts about the secondi – grilled beef flat iron, salsa verde, tomato conserva, black garlic bagna cauda. Tender and perfectly cooked.

 

Tiramisu “Cibo”: deconstructed tiramisu with molten chocolate brownie nubs, marsala and espresso bitters.

 

For those dining with friends and family, you all do not need to order the same Mangia! set menu. If you please you can also pick from their a la carte menu like we did and share everything!
