For the just-opened fourth location, things have gotten really, really cheesy.
For the just-opened fourth location, the local Italian restaurant’s Robba da Matti mini-chain has gotten really cheesy.
Notably, the newest branch of the Yaletown-born pasta-centric operation has what the restaurant touts as Vancouver’s only “burrata bar,” and they’ll officially open for business on Monday, June 6.
Located in Kitsilano at 1898 W. 1st Ave., Robba da Matti’s newest outpost is home to its “Passaparola” option, featuring the semi-soft, decadent Italian cheese made with mozzarella and cream.
“We’re going to take your taste buds on a journey with delicate fresh burrata, paired with the finest ingredients. Come and experience the Italian ‘luxury of the culinary art’,” entices Robba da Matti on his social media feeds.
The burrata bar is located on the second floor of the restaurant, while downstairs guests can enjoy Robba da Matti’s regular offerings in the main dining room.
Robba da Matti’s menu focuses on traditional Italian dishes, including handmade pasta, risotto, and antipasti, along with hearty main courses and plenty of wine. The West End location, on Haro Street, also serves weekend brunch. The restaurant opened in 2011 – under a different name.
Robba da Matti has his original Yaletown address on his list, their second outpost in the West End and a third location in Gastown, and now this fourth spot in Kitsilano. This location has been several months in the making in the space previously home to Cacao – the Latin venture that suddenly shut down in the summer of 2019.
