About the restaurant
D.O.P. is a journey that started with a large family who immigrated from a small village in the heart of Italy in 1979. With them they brought the memories, traditions, and recipes of the old country. For over 14 years my parents operated an Italian restaurant in Ontario. This journey continued when I moved to Calgary, inspired by my father, I continued working in the restaurant industry. His legacy and my exposure to the diverse food culture in the city helped shape the concept of D.O.P.

Being a second generation Canadian, I want to honour both my Italian roots and Canadian upbringing, by sharing our families’ recipes and adapting them to our Canadian landscape.
We are privileged to share with you the time-old traditions and memories of a family whose passion for Italian cooking created a legacy.

So come on in, leave your shoes on and let’s make more.

If you need to get a hold of us: please call us during operating hours, or email us at info@dopyyc.com

My friend and I had the best time at D.O.P. From the moment I walked through the door I was greated with friendliness. Our waiter Zack, was just incredible. He was attentive, but not too attentive. Treated us with kindness, had a great sense of humour and really took care of us. The food, exceptional. While it is a bit olive oil heavy, it didn't take away from the tastiness of the dishes. This was both of our first time at D.O.P. and we will definitely be back.

Simply put, amazing! We shared the Tuna Crudo, Crab and Shrimp Roll, Rigatoni, Dry Aged Bone In Striploin and Potato Puree with Bordelaise Jus. Everything was outstanding. We will definitely be returning!

We went for a birthday celebration and had a delicious meal. We started with the hummus which was fresh and delicious, followed by the halibut and hog. The halibut was nice and crisp on the outside and cooked to perfection. The hog was also cooked perfectly and really flavourful. The server was excellent and attentive.

Pacific Rim
About the restaurant
Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.
Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its sake, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.
