900 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Advice: all their food is available for takeout.
I’ve been in a couple of times recently and have tried the Caprese salad, Bruschetta, and several of the pizzas including the Red Card, Margherita and West Coast. They have a star of a pizza oven that was brought over from Italy, the oven which has an internal carousel can bake upwards of 18 pizzas at a time in 2-4 minutes, so if you are placing a large order of pizzas you are not going to have to wait hours. The stunning quartzite bar and luxurious red leather chairs and black banquettes are inviting for enjoying one of the games showing live that day. On my last visit, I had their Quattro Formaggi Pizza ($14) with Gorgonzola, grana padano, asiago and mozzarella and for dessert the house made Cannoli ($6) filled with pistachio ricotta cream. While I love the vibe of the room and that Italian race car feeling, I’m not a fan of their pizza which I find to be quite bland for my liking.
