Local Italian restaurant offers 50% off all bottles of wine daily
One of the perks of living in a diverse and cosmopolitan city like Vancouver is that you don’t have to travel far to feel somewhere else. One of the best routes to the rest of the world? By food.
You don’t have to fly to Rome or Naples, as BiBo Pizzeria Con Cucina – a gourmet gem tucked away in the western part of the city of Kitsilano – is a delicious taste of Italy on this side of Atlantic.
BiBo’s wood-fired pizzas and authentic pasta dishes couldn’t be more suited to cozy evenings this season. And if you need more of the incentive, the restaurant is offering 50% off all bottles of wine on Wednesdays – a nice push to get us through the week.
Choose from a selection of reds and whites, including bottles of BiBo’s own brand, made with grapes grown on the owner’s property in Gavi in ââPiedmont, a region of Italy. The wines are produced in Italy before being shipped to Vancouver, where they complement the BiBo menu perfectly.
Order a bottle of red Montepulciano d’Abruzzo to accompany their gnocchi Bolognese stew, or opt for a bottle of Gavi di Gavi white wine to enjoy with a prosciutto e funghi pizza. The restaurant has been importing the Gavi di Gavi variety for some time, but soon it will also import a red, just in time for the holidays. The Barbera Sant ‘Andrea grape comes from the vineyards of Marina Coppi, owned by Francesco Bellocchio, nephew of famous cyclist Fausto Coppi and childhood friend of BiBo owner Andrea Bini.
In addition to its wine offerings, the restaurant is also rolling out a new cocktail menu. Crafted by a professional Italian bartender, the more than 30 new cocktails include favorite Italian appetizers, as well as international dishes, like a classic martini.
Start your meal with a Venetian Spritz, made with Aperitivo Select, prosecco and soda, or opt for an Aperol Spritz, a slightly sweet and bitter orange drink that has become particularly popular on this side of the pond. these last years. All of BiBo’s cocktails are created to pair well with their food, like the classic margherita pizza (one of their gourmet pizza options) or the alla piemontese ravioli.
To complete the experience, BiBo also offers live entertainment on Thursdays. Join them for a performance by vibrant Italian singer Andrea Balducci, plus half of all the cocktails – it’s the kind of happy hour that will make you feel like you’re in a completely different part of the world.
BiBo Pizzeria Con Cucina is located at 1835 West 4th Avenue, at the intersection of West 4th and Burrard. Join them on Wednesdays for half-price bottles of wine and on Thursdays for half-price shows and cocktails.
