Popular East Vancouver restaurant Savio Volpe is temporarily closed after a small fire damaged its kitchen.

The fire started at the pizza oven and affected the restaurant’s ventilation system, Captain Brian Bertuzzi with Vancouver Fire Rescue told Daily Hive.

It happened around 8 pm Sunday, and luckily, firefighters prevented it from spreading to the rest of the restaurant.

No diners or staff were hurt, but there was some damage to the restaurant’s interior, Bertuzzi said.

On Monday morning, there was a sign posted on Savio Volpe’s door saying the eatery is temporarily closed.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Osteria is closed this evening. We hope to host you soon,” it said.

The restaurant posted to Instagram later in the morning to say repairs are underway and they hope to reopen in the coming days.

“Last night there was a small fire in one of our rooftop fan units,” the restaurant said.
“If you have a reservation and haven’t yet heard from us, we will be in touch soon and will provide updates here as to re-opening. Grazie for your understanding and patience!”
