FEAST | Modern Italian x Tutto Restaurant x Opening x Yaletown

"Provare un po'di Tutto—try a little of everything."
Tutto Restaurant & Bar | Yaletown, Vancouver

Yaletown—(August 18, 2020) The brand new Tutto Restaurant & Bar quietly opened its doors in the historic location previously occupied by Harrison Galleries' former cafĂ© and art dealer space at the base of the old Bulman Brothers Ltd. heritage brick building (originally constructed in 1910) on the bustling corner of Homer and Smithe.

Tutto's gorgeous 6,000-square-foot open-concept dining space (seating 165, current capacity at 90) features multi-zoned dining rooms with interconnected, semi-private areas on a platform overlooking the intersection of Yaletown (kitty-corner to Homer St. Cafe and Bar) and anchored by a massive, eighteen-seat flat-sided oval bar.

Led behind the kitchen by Executive Chef Adam Shaughnessy and Chef de Cuisine John Wells, their modern casual Italian menu features some familiar flavours and a lot of fresh local ingredients. On our pre-opening tasting, every dish had a sharply refined taste reminiscent of classical fare with the signature calamaro (grilled squid) and casarecce con salsiccia (pork and fennel sausage ragout) standing out most for their hearty sauciness.

The new restaurant's goal is to profile tastes and "create dishes made by famous in the province of Italy"—all of Italy's regions as their name would suggest (Tutto means "everything" in Italian). However, there remains a global culinary influence to most every element of the endeavour.

Tutto boasts an impressive restaurateur pedigree with BC Restaurant Hall of Fame inductee Patrick Corsi running operations and GM Andrea Vescovi managing things in a truly stunning dining space that makes it instantly intriguing. Currently, there's plenty of room with tables nicely spaced-out and multiple seating areas.

I'm not sure of Vancouver's current appetite for upscale Italian dining in a luxurious setting right now, but it's certainly worth a trip if you are so inclined judging by its early appeal. So far, its modern Italian experience is very promising.
