June has been proclaimed Italian Heritage Month by both the Provincial Government and the City of Vancouver. During this month, our city will be filled with learning, sharing, and celebrating everything Italian.
For us, the best way to celebrate is with food. We've partnered with the Italian Cultural Centre for this month's festivities and during the month of June we will be offering 15% off Italian cookbooks and hosting a variety of gatherings centred around a few of our favourite Italian books and dishes.
Join us for a month of celebrations - Mangia Vancouver!
Join us for Dinner:
