DINER: Tom Doughty And Robert Belcham To Open “Campagnolo Roma” On East Hastings

Tom Doughty and chef Rob Belcham of Refuel and Campagnolo took possession of 2297 East Hastings this afternoon. The pair aim to open a new restaurant in its place called Campagnolo Roma. It will be based on the original Campagnolo concept and brand, only the fare will be more regionally specific to the Eternal City of Rome (expect a battery of flatbreads, real deal Amatricianas and Carbonaras, et cetera). The 35 seat space (plus another 8 on the patio) will replace the now defunct Caribbean Hot Pizza Express (no loss there) and is directly opposite Red Wagon. It will go under the reno knife immediately, and will open in May at the earliest. Ted Anderson (currently at Refuel) will be the opening chef.

    Looking forward to this!

    Capagnolo on Main is spectacular and is a beacon of light in stretch Main St that has not much to offer for foodies.

    So if the new Capagnolo on Hastings is supposed to be Roman cuisine, what region is the original Capagnolo?
