I have a soft spot for a few restaurants on the intersection of Fraser and Kingsway. Osteria Savio Volpe is one of them. The other is Sal Y Limon. I love the classic rustic Italian dishes mixed with a few modern twists. Compared to our previous date night at Cibo celebrating Italian Heritage Month, we optioned for a few lighter summer dishes.
Marinated zucchini, buffalo mozzarella, chili and mint 22: This is an incredible salad. It is so refreshing. The marinated citrus and chili on roasted zucchini has very satisfying mouthfeel. If you are looking for a vegetable dish to accompany your meal. Look no further.
Awhile ago when we came here, we had the white anchovy and grapefruit dish. They've since replaced it with this white anchovy, radish, ajitama egg with bagnet vert and whipped butter 14. The bagnet vert has a very raw, green profile but is appetizing when you mix a little of everything together.
Meatballs 14: Three meatballs served with neck bone gravy. Order a side of bread to dip it in the sauce. Don't waste it.
Cavatelli, cabbage, prosciutto and pangrattato 18: This pasta is firmer in texture with a rich, plump and springy bite. I like how this pasta dish is not heavy like the typical ragu, bolognese or carbonara.
Crispy Suckling Pig 28: This was the dish we ordered last time we were here. A very earthy suckling pig with few crackling skin. Served with salsa verde, and a fried egg. I wish they had a few more pieces of the pork crackling.
