305 Alexander, Vancouver BC, Canada
At the casual-yet-intimate Ask for Luigi, meals are served family-style. Although the restaurant specializes in handmade pasta (items like ricotta ravioli and pappardelle with duck ragu are popular), the menu also highlights appetizers like octopus carpaccio, bone marrow and escargot, and a roasted fennel and arugula salad.
With a white-forward wine list (14 whites and six reds), the beverage options are rounded out with a selection of appertivi, grappa, beer, and prosecco.
