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.
