Dolce Gelato15045 Marine Drive, White Rock
Gelato done properly
Submitted Saturday, August 20, 2011 - 10:21am [Take-out]

You get what you pay for. Freshest ingredients...see the boxes of mangoes stacked along the wall, real grated coconut, and chocolate you will remember. The best on the drive. Mom and dad operation. They have been across the drive from the pier for years. The only complaint? They close for the winter.

We agree!
Submitted Saturday, March 28, 2009 - 5:40pm [Dine in]

We stopped in early the other night to give this place a try...we had had a very good meal in the Italian restaurant next door and had heard they were run by the same group.

Very attentive, and pleasent servers.

We agree with other reviewers abut the good food, ambience, and parking. The place looks new inside...perhaps just redone?

We ordered the appetizer calamari as a test along with the bean soup. The soup was a disappointment. It was thin and basically flavourless. The calamari was a hit. Light and not overcooked. Very nice elegant serving dishes.

We both ordered the Kelftico (lamb shoulder). It took 2 servers to carry the plates to the table...the portion of lamb on each plate was the equivelant of what other restaurants would serve 2 people. Very good, but a huge portion.

We'll do it again to ensure this wasn't a one time thing. Stay tuned.

Coza! Tuscan Grill20065 Langley Bypass, Langley
Was it as good as the first time?
Submitted Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - 6:26pm [Dine in]

The short answer...no, food-wise only; service-wise...yes

Why do restaurants insist on pairing tastless chicken brest-meat with pasta? You've got a good hook with the Tuscan slant - use it. Use the more flavourful, moist thigh meat. It would raise a dish that came to a 4 of 10 to at least a 7 of 10.

On the other hand, Scampi & Lobster linguini...not cheap, but very nice. No shortage of Scampi and they were perfectly under-cooked. The Lobster pieces were tender and moist but seemed lost in the sauce and pasta.

Want a dessert? Save room for the Neapolitan Gelato, you will not be sorry!

Do it again? Yes.

Inexpensive? No. Overpriced? Absolutely not.

To answer the title question...not quite, but still, above average

1 extreme to another!
Submitted Sunday, April 6, 2008 - 12:35pm [Dine in]

As noted in my first posting about this establishment, we went back to check for consistancy.

While our first experience was excellent, this second one was a disaster.

First off, beer served in a chipped glass. When brought to the bartenders attention, it was dumped immediately, the glass trashed, and a fresh one given without problem.

Next, an appi of french onion soup. Fabulous and rich. The high point of the meal.

Next, one of us had the tortellini. Tastless, or should we say not a taste you would expect or want to repeat.

The other of us ordered the supposedly high end Italian pizza listed on the main menu. Don't repeat this mistake. I've had better tasting frozen pizza when looking for a lower end of the scale to which fresh restaurant pizza could be compared. Staff indicated that this was a new item they were trying. I suggested that they try again and hope for better results. In fairness, our bill was credited with half the cost of the pizza.

This excursion turned out to be a $59 (tax & tip in) waste of time.

Will we try again? Based on the fact that the first time was so good, we likely will.

Italian Tomato8380 Bridgeport Road, Richmond
After 6 visits
Submitted Friday, July 13, 2007 - 6:00pm [Dine in]

A number of years back, Antonio's on Westminster Hwy between 3 Rd and Minoru was Richmond's answer to Anton's of Hastings in Bby, huge portions of pasta. Antonio moved his operations to Florida. His staff went their seperate ways. Richmond's loss! On May 15, 2007 Antonio's General Manager, PJ partnered with another of Antonio's staff and opened Italian Tomato Restaurant at the old Dem Bones location at 3 Rd & Bridgeport. Same huge portions, same attention to quality, in fact even better. Management that cares about the staff, the customer, and the food - rather a rare combo in this business. We have been back six times just to be certain that what we thought was worthy of a high rating, actually is worthy. Open kitchen, a bartender on a hockey scholorship, friendly knowledgable staff and owners that are visible and that care. As for sharing...be aware that there is a minimum charge per person. More detail later.

Dim Sum - Why go anywhere else?
Submitted Monday, July 3, 2006 - 5:05pm [Dine in]

This Richmond restaurant has a Vancouver branch. If you are in Richmond and want Dim Sum this THE place. There are less expensive restaurants serving Dim Sum but if you want the best - pay a little more. The look and feel of the Richmond SSW is inviting. The Vancouver SSW...well that's another story.

Get there before noon or be prepared to wait! The foremat has changed recently. They used to parade the food around on little carts - now you tick off a preprinted computer card. This works well but can be a little intimidating for those not familiar with all the dishes. Not to worry, the staff will help, just ask; or you can look at the menu card on the table that has pictures and descriptions. Be adventerous, try the chicken feet - fabulous. Try the garlic cuttlefish with taro.

A quiet intimate place for lunch it is not, but enjoy the atmosphre and the cacophony. Your ears will be ringing after but you'll have had a real experience and a great meal.

Would I go back? Yes.
Submitted Monday, July 3, 2006 - 4:43pm [Dine in]

A nice finish to Canada Day at Stanley Park & a walk through English Bay. A wood fired oven, a nice atmosphere. Attentive, knowledgable staff. When we are in Kits we'll go back. No the least expensive restaurant, but quite good value.

Drunken Mussels appi - 8/10
Volcana pizza w/added roasted garlic, basil, & onions - 7/10 and not as spicy as you might think. Very good thin crust
Focaccia that is served when you are seated - 9/10

ABC Country Restaurant3580 No. 3 Road, Richmond
But the Music IS too LOUD
Submitted Sunday, May 21, 2006 - 8:48pm [Dine in]

Totally agree!

We used to frequent this ABC for breakfast almost weekly...BUT, we stopped going because the music is always TOO LOUD!

Generally good music, but one shouldn't have to shout at the person across the table to have a conversation.

And, quite frankly, we got tired of asking them to "please turn down the music".

You'd think they'd get the drift, but obviously not. Too bad for them, as we've taken our money elsewhere.

Update on the Veg. pizza
Submitted Sunday, May 21, 2006 - 8:22pm [Dine in]

They changed the crust!
Why? Because some customers complained that it was thin and crispy!
Hello, the menu says "Thin crust pizza", and it was done properly.
Result: The crust now tastes like the box I used to take home my leftovers in. They went from a 10 to a 5 (scrape off the topping and eat IT)
Will they go back to what was likely one of the best pizzas around? Stay tuned.

The Fries: The best around when you ask for them well done.

THE Pizza!
Submitted Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 6:17pm [Dine in]

Great bar, great view, and they have a pizza that they say they haven't been able to take off the menu. Try this chicken and roasted garlic creation and you will see why. Share this pizza with my buds...like hell! Staff all seem willing to help each other and are very friendly and knowledgeable. Say hi to John...he's their greeter and mascot.

Sometimes its good to tell a secret!
Submitted Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 6:05pm [Dine in]

At the top of the hill overlooking the pier in White Rock sits a small Indian restaurant that is run by a wonderful family. Dad runs the front - and never forgets a name, Mom runs the back - and never misses a day...even with a broken ankle. The difference here is that not every dish tastes the same. Each dish has a very distinct flavour, and what a flavour! Garlic Naan...the best. Choose it instead of rice. We have been going here for about 3 yrs and have had a consistantly superior experience every time...usually about twice a month. Two with food (4 dishes & 2 Naan) and wine, tax and tip in can run you about $70 - $80...don't let that scare you off, it is money well spent! You could, & we have, spend an additional $50 elsewhere and not come close to the quality here. The drive is worth it. Make a day at the beach and dinner at Peter's then down the hill to the gelato shop right opposite the pier. You can die happy after this experience. The only complaint: For you heat freaks...bring your own heat...we have trouble getting Peter & Vina to add the heat but this is just being too pikee.
