Metro Vancouver Lunch Rush: Cento Notti

Spaghetti Bolognese

Looking for Italian food in Yaletown? Cento Notti is one of your options.

Can women relate to Cento Notti? Yaletowners might.

As beauty conscious females switch hairstyles, Davie Street’s trendy boutique hotel restaurant swaps its menu and interior design every 100 days.

First unveiled as ‘100 Days’, the capricious restaurant has survived two makeovers since: ‘100 Nights’, and now, its Italian counterpart, which you may find vaguely reminiscent of Jersey Shore.

With twinkling Mardi Gras beads strewn from the ceiling, shimmering gold walls, and voluptuous Italian sculptures, the room is wild — especially, after hours when the party picks up.

As for food, my Spaghetti Bolognese ($16) was like an expertly woven bird’s nest. It sat heavy and dense in the large bowl before me, the interlocking spaghetti noodles bearing the weight of the heavily meaty sauce. Rich ground beef, sweet tomatoes, and blue cheese added full-flavored gusto to this satisfying, well-portioned dish.

A buttery slice of plain, house made focaccia bread wiped the plate clean.
