A packed house is the norm at newcomer Piva, located on the ground floor of the Anvil Centre. There, the open decor matches the modern menu, which puts a fresh spin on Italian dishes, among them duck and fig wood-fired pizza, wild boar and morel mushroom meatballs, and beet and kale salad, as well as veggie and vegan options.

Bite Me Vancouver

Have you ever walked out of a restaurant after dining and thought “Damn, now that’s a place I’ll be back at!”? On the weekend I celebrated my birthday and was fortunate enough to celebrate it at Piva Modern Italian for lunch, located in the heart of Downtown New Westminster. The beautifully designed layout with the high-end service to match it makes this restaurant one of a kind in New Westminster.

Does the Royal City have a new entry into the must-visit-restaurants list? Living in the suburbs you learn things you took for granted in your city life—decent wine lists, for example—can be a little harder to come by. So I was understandably excited about the opening of Piva Modern Italian in New West. It’s a beautiful space with subway-tiled walls, a marble-topped bar and towering golden mirrored liquor shelving in behind.
