Savio Volpe Vancouver – In-house and handmade pasta

Restaurants

"Savio Volpe" in Vancouver truly portrays the Italian Osteria feel. All pasta is handmade, and I'd recommend you try their truly surprising appetizers...

Situated just west of Fraser Street, Savio Volpe truly portrays the Osteria feel. As you walk in, you immediately notice the open kitchen at the far end, with bonus points for the wood burning oven where all the meats are grilled. The decor is almost like you walked into an old-school Italian's home; the patterned grain wood panels are decorated with plants, and shelving units around the kitchen with cookbooks, pictures, dried chillies, garlic and sage. In the far left, the wine cabinet is embedded in the shelving, but with glass doors to proudly display a magnificent selection of Italian wines. The place is well-lit and inviting and family-style meals where everyone shares is encouraged. 

All pasta at Savio Volpe is handmade in-house, so go early if you want to pick from the full menu. I would also encourage you step outside your comfort zone and try their appetizers. I've literally sat there and watched the white anchovy in their cured & preserved section turn an anchovy hater into a "I wish that portion was larger"! It is so surprising and refreshing, you'll be amazed. 

As for the pasta, well... go all in! The staff can always suggest something that leans to what you most prefer, but the pasta there is delicious, and must be tried.
