WE ARE CLOSING TEMPORARILY UNTIL SEPTEMBER
Due to the unprecedented shortage of qualified labor in our industry in BC at the moment as a result of the border being closed for foreign workers and the extension of the employment benefits for the local ones, we have found ourselves experiencing sustained shortage of staff in the kitchen. Chef Alessandro and his brother Toni did their best for the past 2 months to work a double shift in the hope that we will be able to find and hire qualified staff, however, last week we all hit a mental and physical wall and we decided to temporarily close until September. It is very infuriating to realize that we have to close temporarily again with the books full a month in advance!
We will use this time to recuperate, regroup and plan for the future. We will first take a mental and physical break since we haven't been able to do so for the past 3 years. We will also go on a recruitment trip to Italy and upon return we will renovate the front of the house, restructure the kitchen, update the menu and re-open sometime in September to mark our 3rd year anniversary.
All bookings for the summer months will be automatically cancelled and we will not be accepting any requests for events in the near future at this point. We apologize for the inconvenience.
IN THE MEANTIME, WE ARE ALSO OPENING A NEW ITALIAN GROCERY STORE & PASTA BOUTIQUE DOWNTOWN!
As our business grew, so did the demand for Chef Alessandro's food! To meet the numerous requests from our regular customers, we decided to open a new store location offering freshly made pasta, sauces and imported authentic Italian goods! We will soon announce the opening date for LA BOTTEGA DI MANGIA! Come see us soon at
BIG THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING CUSTOMERS
And finally, a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts - our customers, regular patrons and friends - you have been an absolute delight! Your support during the Covid restrictions have been inspirational and we will do our best to bring you even more authentic Italian flavours in the future!
Thanks again, enjoy summer and we'll see you very soon!
