Verifood is a newly opened Italian restaurant in the Vancouver West End. At the corner of Robson and Denamn, Chef and owner Vittorio brings their love of authentic Italian culinary traditions and fresh handmade pasta from Florence, Italy. The marriage of labor and love from making fresh pasta brings joy to one’s table. “Just like his nonna makes.”
This little hole-in-the-wall restaurant, Verifood has been only opened a few months. The Checcacci family young to Canada is growing new roots and working hard. All the pasta Vittorio makes are done fresh every morning with ingredients sourced locally and imported from Italy.
The menu is concise and only includes 10 choices. All dishes are reasonably priced less than $9. There are appetizers like bruschetta, salads and desserts available. Gluten-free options are available only from pre-orders three days in advance.
TAGLIATELLE with Carbonara Sauce – Freshly made pasta tossed in a classic blend of Italian bacon, eggs, cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano. I liked the nice, creamy sauce. The pasta has a good bite.
RAVIOLI with Alfredo Sauce – Spinach and ricotta filled ravioli with a melted butter and fresh sage sauce and chopped fresh parsley leaves.
For dessert we had a sampler of Tuscan almond biscotti and a light, fluffy olive oil cake. There are two types of tiramisu available. The traditional tiramisu was creamy and decadent. The pineapple tiramisu was light and airy. I loved the combination of pineapples and Mascarpone cheese.
