Pepino’s Spaghetti House Serving Up Hearty Italian Fare Over the Holidays


Vancouver, BC | Tutti a tavola a mangiare! Pasta’s on at Pepino’s Spaghetti House! Christmas has come early to the “house that spaghetti built”, with hearty new homestyle dishes; an expanded wine list; and private holiday lunches, now booking for all of December’s festive debauchery.

House made pappardelle piled high, sauced and loaded with Short Rib Ragu for zio; Lasagna Vegetariana, layered with mushrooms, zucchini and spinach, ricotta, mozzarella and parm, and made with fresh sheets of pasta — just like nonna likes it; and Scampi Alla Romana for that cousin that just can’t stop referencing the Sopranos… alongside such usual suspects as scallopini, broccolini and fettucine alfredo, there’s something for everybody in the famiglia this holiday season at Pepino’s!

Wine lovers will be delighted to get better acquainted with Pepino’s bigger and bolder wine list over the coming winter months; curated by Wine Director Shiva Reddy, the list now features Italian-style BC wines rubbing elbows with their old country counterparts. Cin cin!

This year, Pepino’s will also extend the holiday spirit to day time hours! Gather the entire extended family for a boisterous holiday luncheon or treat the whole office to a two-plus martini midday meal of over-indulgence in Pepino’s cozy and nostalgic room reminiscent of a scene from a Scorcese period piece. Now booking private lunch parties, perfect for any occasion this festive season; to inquire about menus and availability, email or give the restaurant a ring, old-school style.
