119 East 2nd Street, North Vancouver
Advice: Order at the counter, sharing tables.
Keeping it simple this pizzeria has communal tables for sharing, serves a complimentary bowl of rosemary popcorn to guests as seated, provides mis-matched china plates and offers water stations with mis-matched glasses for customers to pour their own. Francesca created this pizzeria to serve people great pizza and a space for friends and family to enjoy themselves. The menu has a great selection of pizzas along with a couple of salads, for dining in or taking out. On the drinks side there is wine, beer and soda to round out the menu. My friend Stephanie Stewart joined me for some late night eats, to share a pie, since she is lactose intolerance we asked them to go cheese-less on half of the pie and to go as is for the other half for me. The Bianca ($14) was our choice, an olive oil base pie, with mozzarella, roasted garlic, oregano, and arugula, with a delicious crust this combo was heavenly.
It’s a traditional wood oven style of pizza, and I can’t wait to visit again to try some of their other pizza pies including the Salsiccia and Zucca!
