654 East Broadway, Vancouver
Advice: Bring a flashlight to read the menu. Sit at the communal table if dining solo.
Since I have been a long time pizza lover, I am quite particular about my favourite pizza pie. I had heard a lot of hubbub about this spot in East Van and as much as I love East Van, I am hopeful another pizzeria will open that hits that mark! The room was dark, spacious and it was very difficult to read the menu, the candlelight didn’t cut it.
I was dining solo and my mission was to try more than one pizza, so I ordered two of them, the Funghi Pizza ($17) bechamella, fontina, oven roasted cremini mushrooms, parmigiano reggiano and white truffle oil, where the cheese and toppings had a good taste, my taste buds were jarred with the charcoal burnt taste from the bottom crust. The second pizza was the Bianco Rosa ($14) red onions, rosemary, pistachios, parmigiano reggiano and extra virgin olive oil; which was the best by far with its Pistachios that created a wonderful crunch and flavour.
Oh and skip the fork and knife and eat this pizza with your hands!
