More big West Seattle food news this afternoon: We just got word from co-owner Sofia Zadra GoffCafe Revo, the new Italian restaurant in the Luna Park business district on Avalon (map), has passed its inspections and set its opening date. From Sofia:

On Saturday Feb 21st we will be open to the public starting at 11 am and closing 11 pm, for lunch and dinner. We will then be open for our normal hours. Sunday 12-9, Mon-Thurs 11-10 and Fri and Sat 11-11.

We introduced you to Sofia and her husband, chef Sean “Chano” Goff, in this WSB report that took you inside the then-under-construction restaurant back in June, but much has changed since then – most of it documented on the Cafe Revo website (see this page with lots of interior photos), where you also can find menu information (and meet “Nonno!). It’s been nine months since first word that this restaurant was taking over the ex-Murphy’s space; Sofia says they’ll be training staff next week with a private “soft opening” and by-invitation charity-benefit party before the first official opening date on Saturday 2/21.

  3. Benvenuto ai Giovani della Città!
    Or as we say in the hood, Welcome to Youngstown!
    We are so excited for all of you and look forward to many delicious meals. We will happily burn off any calories accumulated by the walk up and down the hill.

  7. Through the winter, every time my wife and I drive by the restaurant (which is really quite often), we plaintively cry “Revvvvvvooooooo!” in hopes that they’d hear our yearning and open all the sooner. We’ll definitely be there shortly after its opening.

  9. Every restaurant-in-development we’ve ever covered has had to slide its hoped-for opening date – the process always takes longer than you think. They’re definitely opening at the end of this week – TR
