If you're looking for a down-to-earth place that serves outstanding Italian fare in Vancouver, this is the place to be. The constantly changing menu is based on whatever is fresh and locally available that day. Their pane rustico is just addictive, especially with the garlic broth! I found value to be outstanding, given how expensive eating out in Vancouver has become. The wine list is quite innovative as well where the somm has sought out modern winemakers from Italy and around the world that have sustainability at the heart of their wines. Overall, a must-eat place when in Vancouver.

Unfortunately we left a little underwhelmed. We were so looking forward to this dinner. Our meat was terrible, everything else was good but not amazing. Service was wonderful except no one ever asked how things were. Won’t be rushing back.

The food was amazing and service was excellent. The only downside was that the tables were quite close together which made it a bit less comfortable to have a conversation with my partner across the table.

I was really looking forward to dining here for my birthday having received raving recommendations from friends and colleagues. It was probably one of the least positive experiences I've had in a while never mind it being a celebratory occasion.

The service was ok and the decor and atmosphere itself was great. The food however was so incredibly salty from start to finish. We mentioned it to several people throughout the service. While one of the dishes was remade quickly with less salt, seasoning was still very handed for everything else. Our server stated the saltiness was due to the cheese - which was confusing as there was no cheese in the roasted turnips & cauliflower side, nor the fennel, almond & olive salsa (albacore tuna dish). I drank about 1.5 L of water and my tongue was swollen midway. It was a nice gesture for the restaurant to offer cannoli dessert and strawberry pavlova as a birthday dessert unfortunately, I am a fan of neither and at that point I was so upset and disappointed. I was ready to leave well before then.

Would have been excellent all around but for a party of 14 young women sitting directly behind us who all felt the need to talk to and over everyone else at their long table. Made it extremely hard for our table to carry on any conversation or to hear the serving staff.

The food at Osteria was super flavorful, a few dishes were a bit salty (but nonetheless super tasty!). The kale salad is hands down the best salad in this world. The tiramisu sundae is the best final touch to an Osteria experience. We were in love with every dish & the overall service. Every staff was always walking by ready to help us, take our plates away, or ready to fill up another drink. We will definitely be going back!

Savio Volpe was a full dining experience - 4 of us had the fixed price 5 course meal. The dishes are brought to the table to share, and they were amazing taste sensations! Homemade lamb mortadella, bread to dip in a citrus rich olive oil, flavourful oxtail slices in jus, half a baked chicken that was moist and delicious. Followed by chocolate ganache and 3 scoops of gelato. The staff were friendly, genuine and knowledgeable and the service was outstanding. Great modern low light ambience.

Appallingly noisy restaurant. Like a barn with pulsing music, customers shouting at one another and few soft furnishings or room dividers to absorb sound.
The servers were very pleasant and attentive and the food good but not outstanding.
We will not return or recommend it to others.

The pasta in the Putanesca was very under-cooked. Second time around, the same. Disappointing. Asked for a little grated parmesan and was told it would be $2. Disappointing. Wine pours disappointing.

This place is amazing, the food quality is awesome, flavors are just in great balance, pasta is cooked always al dente, the New York steak was a perfect medium rear. In general I had a really great experience.

Some of our friends recommended this place to us. Good number of staff for good service in this casual yet very sophisticated ambience was what we were looking for. Great presentation for the appetizers, but we wished a little bit something more for pasta menu presentations. Osteria Aavio Vollpe is definitely the place to enjoy great food for any age group ( we actually see a lots of kids ) !

Made a reservation but for some reason had to wait over 30 minutes until we got our table which was ok because they were sweet and gave us free wine and an appy while waiting. Can’t go wrong with that. Plus service and the all the dishes we ordered were delicisoso. 5 stars

Divine food, a knowledgeable staff and a lovely
Ambiance. Savio Volpe is my favourite restaurant and any chance i get to go, i go. A massive heartfelt thank you to our server/waitress/hostess Lauren. She's friendly, knows every dish and the right wine pairing. The staff has a huge role to play in the experience of the client while at the establishment and Lauren nails it everytime!!!.
