Can we get a diavolo sì?
(That’s Italian for “hell yeah”—at least, according to Google Translate.)
The team behind beloved Vancouver restaurants Savio Volpe, Pepino’s Spaghetti House, and Caffe La Tana have announced they’re bringing us another Italian eatery. That we will no doubt love from day one.
Dubbed Elio Volpe, it’s set to open this winter in Cambie Village and is being described as the curious, playful sibling to the Fraserhood’s now-iconic Savio.
Culinary director Phil Scarfone is busy working on the menu, which is hinted to include delicious bites such as grilled giant prawns with salsa verde, Roman-style pizza with crispy crust, and lemon risotto with sea urchin.
Given that the interiors will be brought to life by venerable local design firm Ste. Marie (founder Craig Stanghetta is a co-owner of these restaurants), you can guarantee it’ll be a space worth visiting for the aesthetics alone.
It’s currently under construction, so follow along on Instagram to keep tabs on an opening date.
