Brief Description: Nook fills the West End void of affordable and unpretentious Italian food. Think generous portions of scrumptious pizza and pasta for under $15.

It is pretty obvious from my numerous posts that I love Nook. As I mentioned in my previous Nook post, I think you could order any item from the menu and be happy with it. To prove my theory, I tried a new dish (for me) last week when I ordered the crostini with ricotta cheese, grilled radicchio, pistachio, and fireweed honey, and I was indeed happy. The sweet pistachios were lovely but the dish was a little fussy to eat as they kept rolling off! Maybe don’t order this dish if you are on a first date. Taste-wise, I enjoyed it.

Crostini – Ricotta, grilled radicchio, pistachio, fireweed honey $8

My favourite appetizer at Nook is the proscuitto and burrata cheese plate (found on the specials board). I cannot get enough of this dish! If you aren’t familiar with burrata cheese, think of it as a creamy, slightly salty cheese that has a texture of a creamy mozzarella and the taste of heaven. For $17 it isn’t a cheap appetizer but we ordered this instead of a heavier dish such as a pizza or pasta dish.

Proscuitto and burrata – $17

Final Thoughts: I love Nook! As always!

    I love Nook now! SO glad you introduced me to it. Their crostinis are probably one of my favourite appetizers ever.

      I’m glad you like it. You should try the proscuitto and burrata if you like meat and cheese. So good!!
