Gianpaolo Russo

Born and raised in Naples, Italy, our chef Gianpaolo Russo's earliest memory was in the kitchen with his Nonna. Through his cooking he hopes to re-create the experiences he had of tasting the bliss of Italian cooking throughout his childhood.

Bringing his talent and passion for cooking to Vancouver in 2015, he previously worked as a pizza chef in Naples. Once here, he assisted in curating menu's in renowned Vancouver restaurants and cafes.

Now creating his own name with La Costa catering and pursing his dream, he hopes to bring a new perspective to Italian catering in BC
