Campagnolo

Campagnolo means “country” or “rustic” food. If this is country, I’m there. Whilst seemingly simplistic, our food was simply savoury.

Starting with prime ingredients such as free-range heritage pork, cured in-house, and specially-grown local raspberries demonstrates that the menu is ingredient-driven. The Braised Pork Belly Crespelle with Mushroom Cream were melt-in-my-mouth and the Pancetta, Goat Cheese and Spinach Frittata was dance-in-my-chair yummy. Each of our side dishes were also perfectly prepared, especially the Cotechino Sausage. [Hint – go for the pork!] And go for dessert. The Panna Cotta with Raspberries and Hazelnut Crumble and Lemon Rhubarb Cake were both seasonally scrumptious.

Recently opening for brunch service, Vancouverites should embrace the country in their city. Other opportunities are Wednesdays, which are now farmer market menu days thanks to the newly opened nearby market at Main Street Station.

OMG! That sounds yummy! Of course, I wouldn't expect anything less from Chef Robert. Any chance you could courier brunch to Oahu this Sunday? Please???
