Colin has an extensive background within the service industry, spanning over 22 years. Growing up as a Horseshoe Bay local he is familiar with West Vancouver and has known of Pastameli for as long as he can remember.


Colin met Kim, a Saskatchewan native, 14 years ago when they both worked in a West Coast inspired restaurant. They are since married and have two young children. Kim also brings with her over 20 years of experience within the industry and is proud to put her skills to work within the daily operation of the restaurant.

Owners Colin and Kim Taylor

It was only fitting that these two would take on a new adventure and so they purchased Pastameli from well-known local business owner, Bruce Meli. Bruce owned the successful restaurant for 25 years, which opened in 1983 as a pasta shop on Robson St. in Vancouver.


Since taking over, Colin and Kim, have updated the dining room to a comfortable contemporary atmosphere, which is great for intimate dining, a night out with friends or a casual group get together. As young parents, Colin and Kim welcome families with children and can accommodate any dining experience.


The key to Pastameli success has always been quality and freshness.  Fantastic new creations have been introduced with a focus on local ingredients, all the while keeping a number of past favourites that have made Pastameli's so popular.


Service at Pastameli includes lunch and dinner as well as a busy take out deli that features all of the specialties - pizza by the slice, panini sandwiches, unique salads, pasta entrees, pizza subs, etc.
