Posted in Johnny Depp, movies, music by Anna Maria Polidori on April 7, 2016

Il Giardino stunning Italian Restaurant


Vancouver is a set of Pirates in my heart because an italian man of our land, I live in a tiny little corner of Italy, Morena, left, in 1948 without  instruction our land for affording to America, making his fortune to Vancouver in the theaters’ business. Americans love to go to the cinema.

So with great joy if you have a big question in your mind: where eat very good and tasty italian food, passing of course through wonderful and delicious fish meals, we are happy to let you know that Johnny Depp Knows the Answer and can be very helpful in this case as well.

On April 7th Johnny in fact for our always numerous affectionate readers of Asks Johnny he Knows the Answer, went to eat at Il Giardino 12931285_539185256255122_5638997575315078653_n (Lory Depp Girl pic!) re-opened recently by chef and owner Umberto Menghi.

A wonderful and enchanting place Il Giardino is.

Italians in Vancouver more than in other part of the USA wants to re-create all the time the magical atmosphere and sensations of their distant land: Italy. Menghi did the same with this restaurant.

The decor is not inspired as maybe would suggest the name, at a garden, a beautiful italian giardino, no but at a granary. In the past and in the present, there are special places where peasants keep food for their animals. 160 seats in the restaurant, the patio can contain other 80 people.

There is a wine room, an open kitchen and other spaces that Menghi “translated” and re-created taking inspiration from his beautiful Tuscany for the joy of his reality and the citizens of Vancouver that can appreciate a taste of Italy also just from the interior and exterior of the restaurant.

But…Let’s talk of food now.

There are “crudi” dishes.

Starters involves: salad of burrata, cherry tomatoes and many more.

There is handmade pasta dish of course, Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia and the chef added also Atlantic Lobster and cherry tomato sauce.

The beauty of living close to the Oceans means the use of a lot of fish.
So Menghi proposes fried calamari appetizer, but you can eat  with confidence if you are an estimator of this dish a very good classic Fiorentina.

And for dessert?
Cannoli, pistacchio macarons.


I just can wish you: Buon Appetito!
