ABOUT OSTERIA SAVIO VOLPE
Clean, contemporary and always cool, Osteria Savio Volpe could easily be right at home in Milan, Naples or Rome. The cuisine is rustic in inspiration, but deft in execution and always bursting with flavour. Pasta is made by hand daily, meats are kissed by smoke over the wood-fired grill and rotisserie, and ingredients arrive fresh from the farm. Leading the kitchen is Culinary Director Phil Scarfone, former head chef at Nightingale, and runner- up on Season 7 of Top Chef Canada. He is joined by Head Chef Andrea Alridge, who was recently Chef de Cuisine at CinCin Ristorante and a finalist on Top Chef Canada Season 9.
