Located in the community of Tuxedo right next to Lina’s Italian market (2220 Centre St. NE), one of Calgary’s most popular places to buy Italian food and products, is a delicious Italian lounge called Boccavino.
Boccavino makes authentic Italian food using fresh italian ingredients from next door and serves it in a casual, lounge environment. They have a large range of pastas to choose from that come in heaping helpings and their mussels – on special every Tuesday, are some of the best in the city. Lightly grilled saucy veal, medium crust pizza, fresh bruschetta on toasty buns – if you want Italian food this is a good affordable place to fulfill your cravings.
On the other hand, if you’re more interested in the lounge aspect, Boccavino also offers wings, ribs, and burgers for you to eat while you watch the game. Of course with good food, especially Italian – there needs to be a variety pair-able drink options, which is exactly why Boccavino has an extensive wine and cocktail list.
Boccavino is a great value for price restaurant, so the next time you’re shopping for some Italian groceries at Lina’s, maybe pop next door and see how they do it.
