Vancouver casual dining restaurant Ask for Luigi took top honours at Vancouver Magazine's 26th Annual Restaurant Awards on Tuesday night.
Since opening two years ago, the 34-seat Italian restaurant at the corner of Alexander and Gore streets in Railtown has quickly earned a reputation for its family-style service, generous servings of pasta and long waits for a table.
CBC Vancouver's Stephen Quinn and Gloria Macarenko hosted the awards honouring the top talent in the city's food scene.
Celebrity chef Vikram Vij was named chef of the year.
