As soon as I see the firewood, I go there with my eyes closed, as I know that it's going to be great. We usually order as there not many tables in the restaurant, but it's worth the wait to get a cozy wooden table,...More

My husband and I ordered three large pizzas (chef's special, Chicago and a vegetarian one) and all 3 pizzas very extremely dry because they were burned. We could barely taste the toppings again because the pizzas were completely burned. Not coming back, we even were...More

Our host recommended this place and we weren't disappointed. Lovely crisp base and great toppings. The tomato base also had a really interesting flavour that mixed well with the stone baked base. We ate at the shop rather than takeaway. It's not really setup as...More

We're not sure why some people think this is the best pizza in Vancouver?? Really? Average tasting pizza with minimal toppings. Ours was on the dry side and lacking flavor. I had the shrimp pesto that was supposed to have smoked Gouda etc and could...More

Wood fired oven that's been there for 25 years. Hand tossed dough, good sauce, original topping ideas. Best pizza I've found in Vancouver.

We've been customers for years now and still appreciate their unique taste. Definitely a cut above the usual delivery franchises like Domino's and Panago, but don't expect the gourmet level of higher-end pizzerias in Vancouver like Lombardo's, Via Tevere, Bibo, etc. The crust is on...More
