There’s nothing more romantic than Italian food and Robba Da Matti in Yaletown is a great place to enjoy just that over a great glass of wine. The cozy Italian trattoria exudes a warm vibe which sets the mood for a perfect date night.
Fortunately, Robba da matti has a 3-course Date Night Special priced at $122 for 2 people. This includes choice of 2 antipasti or Yaletown Antipasto or prosciutto & burrata to share; 2 any pasta mains; 2 desserts; and 1 bottle of wine (Nespolino Sangiovese/Merlot or Tolloy Pino Grigio). The great thing is that you are choosing items which are on the regular menu.
I was invited to a media tasting of Robba Da Matti’s Date Night menu. Here’s a look at my experience.
To start, we enjoyed the Prosciutto & Burrata featuring prosciutto di parma (aged 22 months) paired with mozzarella flown in from the Southern region of Puglia.
The thin, marbled slices of prosciutto were buttery and flavourful; it went well with soft and creamy burrata.
One of the mains we had was the Spaghetti Allo Scoglio, a Venetian-inspired dish. It came with cherry tomatoes and assorted seafood (mussels, clams, tiger prawns, and calamari). It was a delicious, seafood pasta with al dente noodles in a flavourful red sauce.
The Osso Bucco & Risotto Alla Milanese was a hearty, comforting dish with melt-in-your-mouth braised veal with saffron risotto. The risotto, perfectly prepared, was creamy but each grain of rice still retained a bit of firmness.
To finish off a fantastic meal, we enjoyed the Panna Cotta and Tiramisu. The panna cotta was presented in a cup and had a delicious cream topped with a sweet and tangy berry sauce.
The tiramisu by Robba Da Matti was also an excellent after-dinner indulgence with rich, dark flavours. The delicate flavours of mascarpone and Italian custard contrasted wonderfully with the bitter and sharpness of espresso and cocoa.
Robba Da Matti’s Date Night menu presents a great value for couples to enjoy well-craft Italian dishes in a charming and inviting setting. For more information, visit www.robbadamatti.com
