Passionately bringing fine dining Italian pasta to the streets. Showcasing the best British Columbian seasonal produce through traditional Italian techniques.
Serving house-made pasta
Amo La Vita is a food truck serving gourmet pasta out of a yellow school bus . We started Amo La Vita to give us the chance to pursue our passions for the environment and sustainability through the medium of pasta. Our aim is to supply our customers with fine dining quality meals at a fraction of the price. Find us at various sea to sky locations from farmers markets, to lakes or even your own private event.
Respecting traditional “Cucina Italiana”
Our pasta is not your standard fare: We use traditional old world techniques to create elegant yet simple dishes in which the ingredients are carefully chosen to compliment each other, without distracting from the delicious flavour of the pasta itself. Our Chef Sam Alexander found his passion for pasta whilst working in some of Australia’s best Italian restaurants and Amo La Vita was born of this passion.
Focusing on local seasonal produce
We have a passion for finding the best quality produce and supporting local farmers. Our menu changes daily to adapt to the weather and we only ever serve food that is seasonally appropriate. Even if we can get pumpkins in June, we will wait till they are perfect in October. We import a few traditional Italian specialties such as our wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano and aged balsamic vinegar.
Protecting our environment
In the planning and building of Amo La Vita, we were careful to think about our environmental footprint, and how we could make our food truck as eco friendly as possible. The Sea to Sky area is renowned for its natural beauty, and we would like to keep it that way for many years to come. We use solar to supply electricity for our food truck and all of our packaging is 100% compostable. All of our products are selected thoughtfully, and consideration given to the living conditions of animals, sustainability of farming methods, and health impacts to our customers.
