Best cozy, casual Italian restaurant - Aperol Spritz anyone? homemade pasta, and don't forget to order the Burratta board - just do it! If there is a wait, which there will definitely be, put your name down, and grab a drink at the Blue Martini, the jazz cafe across the street :)

Summer Tappy Hour is best done at Provence Marinaside. Take in the views of Yaletown Marina and the gorgeous Vancouver Seawall. Make sure to sit on the lounge Patio, and definitely order the gnocchi du jour as one of your small plates. If there are 2 of you, order 5 small plates for a satisfying meal. When you're done, grab a gelato a few doors down at Baggio, and take a stroll along the seawall to burn off those calories you just indulged in!

I love this place because it is so authentic. Do not expect anything fancy, and please not that my experience with the service isn't anything to write home about. That being said, it is so good, and I it is one of my proudest "hole in the wall" discoveries!

Healthy Eating
I honestly believe most restaurants in Vancouver can cater to most diets, and that healthy choices are on all menus as long as you are choosing something that isn't a "Greasy Spoon." If you tell your server you have specific food requirements, they will always suggest items that fit the bill.
Delicious Lebonese food, plain and simple! Their cauliflower is one of my favourites! They have 2 locations that I go to; This one in Yaletown, and their original location in Gastown, which may not be accessible by wheelchair.

I have eaten at their hot and cold food bar too many times to count. They are seriously the best in North America, and trust me, I've tried many! Grab meals to go, for the next day, or just sit down in their eating area, and people watch! Make sure you go to this location of Cambie and 8th. The other ones are small, and I wouldn't recommend them.
