Pepino’s Spaghetti House, "The House that Spaghetti Built" is an homage to both the cuisine that developed in the Italian immigrant communities during the early part of the 20th century, and to the locale’s celebrated influence in Vancouver’s Little Italy.

Connected to Pepino’s is our sister restaurant, La Tana. An intimate affair, with a menu of pasta and small plates to share, an all-Italian wine list of much-loved and lesser-known varieties, and an essential collection of cocktails, grappa and amari to start, finish and make the most of the afternoon & evening. Reservations for lunch from 11 - 3 pm on weekdays, and 10-3pm on weekends. Dinner served daily from 5pm -10pm. Contact La Tana at 604-428-5462 or info@caffelatana.ca.

    The team did an excellent job for my husbands birthday. We were a large party and had a family style feast. Food was consistent and amazing as always - despite the restaurant being very busy. We felt very well looked after. We will be back! Thank you to the team!!

    We went for lunch, there weren’t a lot of options. And by that I mean, 3 and 2 of them were daily specials. We ordered all 3 plus 3 happy hour appetizers. The spaghetti wasn’t great. The two specials were good but not wow’d. None of the happy hour items were worth ordering. All in All pretty disappointed given all the raving reviews.

    Would have been nice to have been told that Pepinos was closed for private event before or when making a reservation. Woman at the door said “don’t worry, we have pasta” but there was only 1 pasta dish on the menu. My risotto was undercooked. I like Pepinos but not my experience on the La Tana side was not one I’d recommend.

    Friendly reception and good pasta! Really disappointed by the tiramisu which wasn’t cheap and was almost all overly-sweet custard. There was really no coffee flavour and it was just sweet and gooey. Our server seemed really distracted and we waited a long time with dirty plates and a long time to pay. First time here and might come back but wouldn’t rush.

    Love the retro decor. Pasta is so fresh (The rigatoni is my fav) Cherry Coke ribs are done so well. The appettisers can get a little salty but they are still well made. Only issues are the noises. The tight space and the wooden walls make the place super loud. It could be hard for seniors.

    Love Pepinos, it's "our place" for my partner and I. We went for our 2 year anni. Always great, first time with the Gnocchi which was a game changer, definately worth coming back for, SO FLUFFY. The Cocci Spitz and New York sour cocktails are a must. We have had the Rigatoni ala vodka many times before, but last night was a little underwhelming compared to previous visits. Regardless it was still an amazing night with amazing service. If you have the room, order a meatball on the side. Thank you Pepinos !

    If you're paying $27 for a portion of pasta, you expect the works. I was disappointed with the quality of the food and the price we paid. There were many fruit flies around us, and it was an uncomfortable experience. We were also seated at the back area, away from the main dining area which is a buzz kill.

    The food was amazing, I haven't had pasta like that since I've been in Italy. I had the lasagna it was outstanding, my spouse had the Alfredo rigatoni both were hundred percent on point. I highly recommend it, and I am a picky eater as well. great value for the quality. For dessert the tiramisu was really nice, but the pecan chantilly tart, i wanted a second peice. enough said.

    From start to finish it was was one of the nicest dining experiences I've ever had. Food portins were enormous so we were glad that our server recommended sharing our choices. The ambiance was so cosy yet swanky. A nice subtle touch of jazz and Frank sinatra playing low in the background. Our server was one of the nicest gentlemen I've come across. 10/10 the entire night! A real feel of Italy inside!

    We had a really caring, helpful and attentive server who kept clearing our plates after each course (we shared five dishes: chicory salad, crispy arancini, tuna crudo, pasta of the day, and dessert) and refilling our water. The ingredients were fresh and flavourful, the plating elegant and refined, the serving sizes perfect, and the house-made sauces and dressings delicious. We loved the REAL candles (vs those fake battery charged ones). It was a lovely meal.
