Jason Cisneros Appointed Operations Director of the Volpe Family of Restaurants

VANCOUVER — Jason Cisneros has been appointed director of Operations of the Volpe family of restaurants: Osteria Savio Volpe, Caffé La Tana and Pepino’s Spaghetti House. Cisneros brings more than 20 years of hospitality experience to his new role and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of all three properties, including the development of the front-of-house teams and the future growth of the company.

Cisneros’ career started with a chance encounter at Chez Panisse, a legendary farm-to-table restaurant owned by Alice Waters. While working for a lumber yard that supplied the wood to help Waters re-build her restaurant, Cisneros was treated to a dining experience that changed everything and ignited his passion.

Cisneros went on to manage The Claremont at the Fairmont Hotel in Berkeley, Calif., opening and revamping Claremont restaurants in collaboration with renowned chefs like Dominique Crenn and Scott Quinn. He opened several bars in the area and won accolades for his scratch kitchen-style cocktail programs. Upon arriving in Vancouver, Cisneros spent seven years at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, working his way up from lounge manager to director of Food and Beverage. He played a pivotal role alongside chefs Damon Campbell and Hector Laguna to transform Botanist and the rest of the hotel’s restaurants.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to join the exceptional team and great restaurants that Paul Grunberg and Craig Stanghetta have put together,” says Cisneros. “It’s a dream come true to be part of such a group where the love for hospitality takes centre stage. These neighborhood restaurants create such a welcoming space for people to gather and share the passion that the team puts into creating food-and-beverage experiences, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
