Calgary's best antipasto platter

maclock Oct 12, 2007 11:24 AM

Ideas, folks? I'm on the hunt for the best antipasto platter that Calgary's Italian restaurants have to offer. I'm a hungry fella and hope to scarf down a big plate of this kind of fare tonight.

(Non-Italian offerings of top-quality sliced meats, cheeses and pickled vegetables are equally welcome.)

    My husband and I really like the antipasto appetizer at Bonterra. They have a seafood version too, I believe, but we stick with the non-seafood one. It's been a while since we've been, so I don't recall specifics - but I do recall that we thought the size was fine for the two of us and worth the $17.

      The one and only time that I went to Bonterra, I thought the food was quite good and the service was excellent. Portion sizes, however, were quite disappointing.

      Perhaps the antipasto platter will redeem it in my eyes.

      bonterra is fantastic but we also enjoyed the one at pulcinella, it was very big though - they say for 2 but with a pizza coming it's definately for 4 as an appetizer - perfect for two with a bottle of wine on it's own though

        I have eaten at Pulcinella twice. Both times, I left underwhelmed. I didn't try the antipasto platter, though.

          yeah i agree, Pulcinella is hit and miss, the last time i was there though, it redeemed itself after a couple of dissappointing experiences.
