What a great spot morning or afternoon. Love this place staff is fantastic. Service is better in the afternoon evining. I love the breakfast here soft poached eggs perfectly cooked with bread and tomatoes. Evening wine and light snack yum. Pricy wines but very good selection.

Giovane wine bar is one of the cities best kept secrets. It is so refreshing to go out for an amazing culinary experience outside of the predictable Yaletown or Gastown scenes. Not only is Giovane in a wonderful and beautiful location it is also host to some of the best and most true to form Italian you can find locally. Their wine list is second to none and surprisingly not out of reach expensive while still offering something for everyone. The staff is very knowledgeable while still being extremely friendly, kind and approachable. I felt every question we had about the menu was answered accurately and without hesitation. We were at Giovane to celebrate a special occasion and every step was taken to ensure we had an amazing time.

We just stopped for a glass of wine and we discovered this little gem in the heart of coal harbor. The manager, Jill, is amazing- she has an incredible knowledge of wine and Italian food. This is a perfect place for a drink and a good snack after work.
