First Taste of Pizza Rubato

It’s all about delicious Napoletana pizza at this recently opened spot in the Fairview neighbourhood of Vancouver. Owned by Chef Ahmet Duman Turunc, this is the first of hopefully a few locations for this passionate entrepreneur.

In addition to pizza, the rest of the menu features a selection of salads and various house made dips, and desserts.

They have a few seats at this counter-serve eatery, though it’s mostly set-up for takeaway, or delivery.

I have visited and tried a selection of pizzas as well as a salad and dessert.

I loved the Figuratti *RR pizza with Fior di Latte, DOP Parmigiano, Spicy Italian Sausage, Red Onions, Ricotta Cheese, Chili Infused Honey (14 inch); I also loved the Pistachio Pesto *RR pizza with Fior di Latte, DOP Parmigiano, Ricotta Cheese, Rosemary, Crushed Pistachio, Chili Infused Honey (14 inch). My favourite from the special *RR section of pizzas was the Limone *RR a unique combination of ingredients with Fior di Latte, DOP Parmigiano, Fig Jam, Lemon Slices, Fresh Thyme, Ricotta Cheese, Balsamic Glaze (14 inch).

I have also tried the Rucola and the Funghi Tartufo pizzas; along with the Roasted Potato Salad with Rosemary Baked Potatoes, Arugula, Red Onions, Grape Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, Aged Balsamic Vinegar, EVOO; and the Nutella Calzone with Nutella Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, Pistachio Crumbles, Sugar Dust for dessert.
