The restaurant, which has been open for nearly two decades, will be closing on December 18. However, it won’t be shuttered for good.
That’s because Pasta Amore will soon be rebranding and opening up a new concept —Claudio’s Ristorante not too far away, right across Whole Foods Market at#103, 4402 Skyline Dr.
Ok this is pretty exciting for the #Burnaby food scene… what seems to be a new Italian restaurant is coming soon to Skyline Dr – right across the complex w/ Wholefoods in Brentwood. Looks like it could be connected to the folks behind Pasta Amore on Dawson St. @bbybeacon pic.twitter.com/Fbg3Pd1bAP

According to Stefano Magagnin, Pasta Amore’s general manager, the new eatery will “showcase the very best in both Italian and local ingredients, the newly inspired menu can be described as “Dinner at Nonna’s” but elevated.”
Magagnin told the Beacon that the food won’t be regionally specific but pay homage to “the entirety of what the peninsula has to offer.”
As for the menu, diners can look forward to lots of family-style share plates, Venetian-style cicchetti, brick-oven pizzas created from a master pizzaiolo imported from Rome.
As for drinks, the bar menu will include an Italian-inspired cocktail list, a wine program that offers but “old and new world” wines, local craft beer, amari, and, of course, plenty of grappa.
Claudio’s Ristorante is set to open in Spring 2022. Until then, be sure to enjoy one last meal at Pasta Amore Pizzeria before its last service on Saturday.
