Tutto Restaurant & Bar Brings The Best of Italy to Vancouver
Tutto Restaurant & Bar celebrates several wins with Georgia Straight’s Annual Golden Plates award and announces the appointment of Omar Hadi as executive chef.
With 19 years’ experience working in restaurants and hotels around the world, Chef Omar has developed his repertoire to provide an outstanding culinary experience. Originally from Amman, Jordan, Chef Omar acquired his culinary expertise and leadership skills through high-end hotel and restaurant work in Amman, with stops in Hampshire, Dallas, St. Louis, Toronto, Whistler and Vancouver. Most recently, he was the executive chef for Glowbal and Black and Blue Restaurants in Vancouver.
Situated on the corner of Smithe and Homer in Vancouver’s vibrant Yaletown neighbourhood, Tutto brings a transformative Italian dining experience to Vancouver. Continuing this culture of excellence, Chef Omar looks forward to reinvigorating Tutto’s menu and dining experience.
“My cooking philosophy is based on choosing the highest quality of local and seasonal ingredients and allowing those flavours to shine. ” Says Omar. “The most important ingredient is love and without this the dish lacks soul. We have such a strong work culture at Tutto and my ultimate goal is to build trust in my team, so they feel confident to follow their passion on a plate.”
Tutto recently won several categories in the Georgia Straight’s 24th Annual Golden Plate Awards for 2021, including:

Tutto transports diners through traditional flavours that indulge the palate and pay homage to Italy. An open kitchen, long oval bar, and private dining space offers a variety of vantage points for patrons to experience the eatery’s vibrant scene.

Every day we celebrate exceptional wine, delicious food and each guest that walks through our door. We’re thrilled to welcome Omar and continue to provide an unforgettable dining experience.”
