Fodor's Expert Review Ask For Luigi

$$$ Gastown Italian

Neighborhood residents queue before opening to secure one of the 30 seats in this cozy Italian bistro serving up house-made pasta and prosecco on tap. Antipasti like smoked mackerel, crispy polenta, and—of course—meatballs, are served family-style, so bring some friends for the best experience. It can take up to two hours to get a table, so plan to head elsewhere for drinks; the friendly staff (none of whom are named Luigi) will text when your name hits the top of the wait list, or come for lunch if time is of the essence. Regardless of the hour, don't miss the house-bottled Spritz.
