Pino | chef, individual of note | How Vancouver diners and hospitality industry types casually and affectionately refer to chef/restaurateur Giuseppe ‘Pino’ Posteraro, inarguably one of Vancouver’s most exacting, capable and celebrated culinary talents. Omnipresent at his Yaletown restaurant, Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill. A legend.

Usage: “Sometimes I think I have a new favourite Italian restaurant, but then Pino cooks me something new and I’m reminded of that impossibility.”
