I’m so glad Glowbal Group opened Trattoria Italian Kitchen in Park Royal Shopping Centre in West Vancouver! Their slogan “every neighborhood needs a Trattoria”, is kind of true. We all can use some delicious pasta with a gorgeous patio. It is no surprise that owner Emad Yacoub would expand his restaurant empire to the new shopping destination of Vancouver. The Glowbal Collection includes: Italian Kitchen, Coast, Black and Blue, Society, The Fish Shack, and another Trattoria on Kitsilano West Fourth and Burnaby.
Park Royal has seen some major face lift and is now my favorite place for shopping. I love the open concept of outdoor malls with big spacious stores. Park Royal has all my favorite stores: J Crew, Anthropologie, Aritzia, Sephora, LOFT, Kate Spade New York, Zara, Urban Outfitters… They even have YYoga.
The patio space on the second floor is awesome. It really reminds me of Toronto.
Beef Carpaccio 13.95: to start we ordered antipasti of a herb crusted beef, grainy mustard aioli, arugula, grana padano, forno bread, pickled onions.
Seafood Salad 21.95: It is very important to eat your vegetables. So we ordered a delicious bowl of salad packed full of hand-peeled shrimp, salmon, seared albacore tuna, green beans, quinoa, watercress, basil, herb vinaigrette.
Lamb Pappardelle 17.95: lamb sausage, potatoes, cabbage, peperoncino, olive oil. Great tasting pasta. We came happened to be here on a Tuesday. Tuesday is Pasta Tuesday where they offer a pasta special for $11. It’s a great deal if you ask me!
Pasta Platter 20.95 (priced per person, minimum 2 per order): A selection of truffled spaghetti & signature meatballs, cavatappi pollo, penne pomodoro, and lamb pappardelle. This is a great choice when you want to sample a little of everything. Great for sharing. We came here on a separate occasion than Pasta Tuesday.
Trattoria is a great location with impressive service. The restaurant is big and bright and everything is shiny and new. They do not take reservations, so you will need to come early or wait for awhile. Seems like most people in West Vancouver likes to have an early dinner at 5:30pm.
