CONTEST | #ZomatoDateNight At Ovest Cucina


Let’s face it – dating isn’t easy.

Between manoeuvring your way through the online dating sites and apps, or picking someone up the old-fashioned way – it can be challenging.

Once you’ve gone through the chit chat and banter back and forth, and have established that there is somewhat of a connection, at least through texts and calls – it’s time to make the move and ask them out on an actual date.

But…what are you going to do?

Where are you going to go?

I recently went on my very own date night to Ovest Cucina.

This cantina-inspired Italian cucina e vinera, is located on King West at Niagara, in the Fashion District, just west of the Entertainment District.

Serving up authentic Italian cuisine made with local, seasonal ingredients by Chef Luca Stracquadanio, this upscale restaurant with a cozy feel also features a homemade salumeria, pizza bar and Italian vineria.

Ovest Cucina e Vineria is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Ovest Cucina is a lovely restaurant on King St W.

With an extensive wine list, and delicious menu – this romantic restaurant is perfect for your next #datenight!

Ovest Pasta

One of the dishes we ordered was the Tagliatelle Al Ragu’ Bianco.

Tagliatelle in a park, veal, beef and herbs ragu’.

This was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had.

Perfect portion, fresh pasta – I couldn’t not eat the entire dish. LOL

Ovest Pizza

When there si a stone oven right beside the kithen – you have to order a pizza.

We ordered the Provolone E Salame Piccante.

Tomato sauce, provlone, spicy soppressata on a thin crust – delish.

Ovest Risotto

Finally, we ordered the Risotto Milanese Con Burrata E Tartufo.

Saffron risotto, burrata cheese, black truffle.
