Say ciao to ‘lackluster-lower-main,’ and hello to magnifico authentic Italian in a beautifully designed atmosphere. Dinner or lunch in the front is great for treating a guest or lucky coworkers to something special, but the wine-bar around back is Campagnolo’s more casual and unique feature that Vancouver dinning-aficionados have most likely already enjoyed – it’s subtle, comfortable and the food absolutely impresses. 

Located on Main near Pacific Central Station, the space is unpretentious and contemporary in concrete walls and warmth from wood finishes, with a lighted bar-top in the back in an unbelievably tasteful paisley pattern. Going above and beyond top-notch rustic Italian dishes is what they do; Campagnolo’s weekly staples are embraced by locals. 

Thursday’s lasagna, fresh baked bread and salad for $20 

Canuck’s game nights, from 5-7pm, pizza and pint of R&B beer is $12.50, (offered daily after 9:30pm).   

Also, returning this fall, Tuesdays ‘Just like dinner at Nonna’s House,’ a series of home-style Italian meals paired with a pint for $19.  Every Tuesday up to November 9th can be your night out of the kitchen.
