Vespaio soft opens tomorrow in downtown LA

For the past year Shambra Restaurant Conuslting has partnered with Ago Sciandri, to bring to light his newest restaurant Vespaio ("wasp's nest"  in Italian). Tapped early in the process to provide design consulting and equipment purchasing, Sciandri selected SRC for our outstanding service and experience in commercial kitchen design, extending a relationship that also includes Toscanova (Century City and Calabasas), The Juicy Bird, Cafè Roma, and upgrades and service support to Ago and Sortino. 

Vespaio showcases some of the best and most extensive equipment and services provided by SRC. The restaurant will boast a three-meal service throughout the day, including bar service and pastries made in-house. Featured equipment includes a GrandFlame Rotisserie oven by Rotisol with stunning brass and emerald green enamel; a full-sized pizza oven by Morello Forni (which had to be lifted by crane!) through our great friends at Rosito Bisani; and beautiful pastry cases from Oscartek. In addition, SRC supplied the equipment and installation for cooking/heating, refrigeration, bar service and refrigeration, prep, dish room, and walk-ins as well as custom steel fabrication. 

We are very excited for our friends Ago Sciandri, his son Sandro Sciandri, and all of the Ago team. Thank you for your continued support and we will be by soon for incredible pastas, wood crisped pizza, and rotisserie fired chicken and other sure-to-surprise items from the rotisserie! 

Salute e buona fortuna! Ci vediamo presto!
