I was so busy with work, and on one Friday, I was waiting for co-workers to finish their parts. When my friend sent me a text message in the afternoon if I can go for dinner with her, I couldn’t say if I can for sure. Well, in my mind, I thought I could go. 🙂 At 7pm, I sent her a text back saying I can, as there was no progress seen on their parts.

Thinking about where to go, I asked her if she wanted to go to Italian. The restaurant was Campagnolo Roma on Hastings street, close to Nanaimo street. Their original place is on Main street, and this is a sister restaurant.

We ordered from their special and dinner menu.

Burrata, Pane Bianco, Olive Oil from Special

I love Burrata cheese! I liked their bread, too.

Tagliatelle, Octopus, Olive Oil, Basil, Calabrian Chili from Special

This is not with white or tomato sauce, just seasoned with chili and salt, but it still tasted good.

This pizza had interesting texture. The edge was crunchy rather than crispy, but the dough was chewy a little bit. The taste was good, although this was not my favorite pizza.

Americano

Oh, I forgot this was an Italian restaurant. The Americano had Italian taste, sour! I don’t really like sourness in coffee.

And, we ordered dessert to share.

Mmm, this Panna Cotta was so good! I will come back even just for the dessert!

So, as I mentioned in the previous post, Collin and I went for lunch. You may already know by now where we go, when we don’t have much time. 😉

Yes, it is Giovane Cafe + Winebar. They are located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. There are two parts, a cafe counter and a deli counter. At the cafe counter, you can order coffee, tea, or pastries, and at the deli counter, you can order pizza, soup, wine, etc.

We ordered from their deli and bakery menu and shared.

As we felt last time, they were not serving great food any more? The pizza was quite disappointing. It was like a rice cracker, I mean, it was still edible but crunchy, besides it cost $14 now. I don’t want to think this way, but they pre-made and re-heat when we ordered now?

Their pizza was our favorite, and it was still good last October with $12. Going further, it was great about a year ago with $10. Sugar bun was still good.

Well, skipping Saturday for skiing, if the weather seems nice and I know there would be lots of fresh untouched snow, of course, I would go on Sunday, although I usually not to. When I arrived in Whistler mountain, I still could hear the bombing sounds for avalanche control.

Although waiting time for lifts was long, snow was fantastic, and so was view! Yeah, as usual, my legs can’t handle fresh snow at some point, so I headed to the Chic Pea hut for lunch. When the Roundhouse was packed, you can get away from it and come down the hut if you can ski on green run.

I ordered kids size Pizza.

Kids Size 1 Sliced of Pizza includes Fruit, Drink & Snack

There are 3 or 4 different kinds of pizza including vegetarian choice. Also, for the kids size, you can choose nann or sandwiches instead of pizza.
