This week La Pentola is celebrating its five year anniversary, and to celebrate this classic Italian eatery’s milestone, we’ve created a list of must-try mains off the dinner menu.

Located inside the Opus Hotel at 350 Davie Street, La Pentola offers Vancouverites sustainably farmed meats and locally grown vegetables for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch – so it’s no wonder this establishment has been killing for five years now.
