Giovane Cafe + Winebar Restaurant Review

: Located in Fairmont Pacific Rim, Giovane Cafe + Winebar is bustling by day and an oasis of evening calm. Locals and visitors alike enjoy pastries --- the signature sugar bun is a must --- and panini like the breakfast Roman panino with scrambled eggs, cacciocavallo, tomato and aïoli with a cup of 49th Parallel coffee. Lunch offers salads, pizzas, panini, pastas, and soup and salad combos. Wine lovers may choose from the city's largest by-the-glass all-Italian wine list that roams Italy's 20 diverse wine regions, perhaps lingering over a selection of antipasti or an albacore tuna puttanesca pasta. A sommelier is on hand and happy to suggest food and wine pairings. Not to be missed: Giovane's “Market” stocked with cheeses, house-made salumi, olive oils, pastas and much more.
