Vancouverites have been waiting a long time for a casual Italian
restaurant like this: Five reasons to book at The BiBo.

1. Lively owners Lorenzo and Andrea (a former shipping magnate and
actor/lawyer, respectively) who give the dining room lots of personality.

2. Wood-fired pizza with simple ingredients (cooked expertly by a young
Neapolitan chef) that arrives hot, chewy and uncut at the table

3. Bottles, not glasses, of red wine being heartily consumed (try the
2006 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, just $38) by multi-generational families.

4. Classic Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni films (La Dolce Vita,
8 1/2) flickering on the flatscreen.

5. Top-quality Italian ingredients that come with the D.O.P. distinction
(translation: Protected Destination of Origin), like the melt-in-your
mouth Burrata cheese.

Now that’s what we call an Italian job. SB

The BiBo, 1835 W. Fourth Ave., Vancouver, 604-568-617,
