Originally from Hull, Quebec, Sylvie has garnered over 30 years of customer service experience from a variety of roles. She has warmed the hearts of guests from the general public, the government, and international dignitaries. She is always one step ahead when it comes to excellent service and her attention to detail is Pasta Polo’s greatest asset. She brings out the best in her staff to produce a memorable dining experience for guests.
Aside from managerial duties, Sylvie fits right into the team. Eight groups of people just walked in and there’s only 2 servers on the floor with full sections? No problem, Sylvie’s got it covered!
From Korea to Australia, and now in Canada, Ahyoung is the Chef-Owner of Pasta Polo since 2015. Trained in Melbourne Australia in a fine-dining Italian restaurant called Scusami. She is also a mother to two young ones (how does she do it all?!). She had dreams to own a restaurant for as long as she could remember, and with the support of her husband, her dreams came true! She started working at Pasta Polo in 2014 in a front-of-house role and now knows the restaurant like the back of her hand. Ahyoung loves to create healthy and fresh foods that she would be proud of serving to her own family. Nutritious, delicious, fresh, house-made meals are what she strives for in that busy kitchen!
