Three Sixty a snazzy spot for Italian in Vancouver

first_imgWhy: Three Sixty Kitchen & Bar is located in a strip mall where QFC anchors a shopping center on Southeast 192nd Avenue. The premium casual restaurant serves seasonally inspired Italian dishes, as well as pizza and desserts. It is a convenient and comfortable dinner spot and a snazzy place to meet friends for a drink.What I tried: My dining companion and I started with Nonnie’s meatballs from the small plates menu. These come in a sweet-pepper tomato sauce. I settled on the Dungeness crab ravioli, and my dining companion had the Italian sausage and sweet pepper pasta. We also tried the tomato pizza, which is topped with olive oil, garlic, fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato slices. For dessert we had the butterscotch budino with rosemary and almond brittle.The meatballs had a tasty traditional flavor, and the sweet-pepper tomato sauce was a robust, rich departure from typical marinara sauce.The crab ravioli imparted a freshly made, from-scratch quality, and the combination of asparagus, shallots, garlic, white wine, lemon and butter that completed the dish elevated it. I would revisit for this dish alone.My dining companion found the sausage and pasta dish appetizing and appreciated that there was adequate sauce for all the fettuccine.The pizza’s crust was thin and held up well to the toppings. The fresh sliced tomatoes did their duty in distinguishing the pie for its namesake.Our dessert choice brought our meal to a satisfying close. The rich, creamy custard was topped with a sweet layer of butterscotch goodness and garnished with a portion of brittle that imparted the essence of rosemary, with all its aromatic qualities, directly onto the palate.last_img
