The kitchen team is anchored by Executive Chef and Italian born-and-raised Valerio Pescetelli, who began his culinary career in London, England at hotspots such as Orso and Gordon Ramsay’s Michelin-Starred Savoy Grill before hopping the pond and overseeing operations for a number of restaurants at Rogers Arena. Prior to joining the Skye family, Pescetelli was the driving force behind beloved local spots like Per Se Social Corner, Aquafarina and The Victor.

Available nightly Pescetelli’s dinner menu features an array of dishes that incorporate the best local ingredients from farms, fields and fishers around BC — including fresh-caught halibut while in season — as well as rotating varieties of fresh-daily hand-made pasta, sushi and sashimi, and more, with the following highlights:
