KAFFE | Pastificio di Luigi x Giovane Café x Fairmont Pacific Rim

Pastificio di Luigi | Giovane Café + Eatery + Market | Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel Vancouver

Coal Harbour—(September 28, 2020) After ten years, the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel transferred operations of their street-level Giovane Café + Eatery + Market over to Kitchen Table Restaurant Group of Ask for Luigi, Di Beppe, and Pizzeria Farina fame over the summer.

Since reopening, Giovane and Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello have introduced their own touches including being the new temporary location for KT's popular Pastificio di Luigi (Italian for "Luigi’s Pasta Factory") pop-up, relocated from its former home inside Pourhouse, while tweaking other familiar elements.

Operating as a pop-up until the current situation stabilizes and Kitchen Table is able to properly renovate and relaunch a reimagined concept, the new iteration of Giovane still offers a multi-faceted space featuring a café, marketplace, and counter-service eatery.

Pastificio's fresh pastas, handmade sauces, Italian wines, bottled cocktails, and specialty ingredients are all real treats for their authenticity and taste. It's hard to really wrong with any of the classic pasta dishes. Also, their specialty coffees are quite good.

Part café, Italian market, and restaurant, Giovane (and Pastificio by extension) is a fine place for a coffee, drink, meal, groceries, or all of the above. It has a nice feel of Italy to it while keeping the casual regalness of a hotel lounge.
