If you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path eatery with a good reputation, then you should seriously consider Campagnolo Roma on Hastings & Garden, in East Vancouver.
It’s sister restaurant Campagnolo has set the standard, so make sure you try a pasta or the pizza. It’s a smaller place, but that provides a nice atmosphere with a little outdoor patio. And if you need a breakfast spot…look across the street to the Red Truck Diner.
