About Caffè La Tana

A joint initiative between three of Vancouver’s most successful restaurateurs – Paul Grunberg and Craig Stanghetta – Caffè La Tana is situated on Commercial Drive, home to Vancouver’s officially designated “Little Italy”. The café/grocer is styled after the authentic Italian alimentari with an intimate 20-seat dining area connected to a small shop selling local and imported cheeses, meats and accoutrements, as well as fresh pasta made in-house daily. Diners are invited to linger over strong espresso while sampling light bites, pastas and delectable pastries.
