Porchetta is Great

The porchetta (pork) sandwich is amazing and is the closest thing to the porchetta sandwich that I had while visiting Italy. The pork is tender and the fried cracklings are amazing. It's difficult to find a good version in the US. This is definitely a great option.

I was told not to sit at the table whilst my wife ordered and to line up with her and order only. We found this quite rude, grabbed our sandwich and left. Good sandwich but we won't be back.

So I was hungry, it was 3 pm, and I wanted a hunka meat to tide me over till dinner, and stumbled on this place. That's it. I did not come here bc of the hype and had no expectations. Did not know there was any hype--I was just looking for meat. They had porchetta, and they were willing to... More

This you just have to try, especially if you like meat with bread. They have a regular meat item and a specialty each day! The porchetta is pork loin with salsa verde cooked to perfection, then shaved and served on a freshly made ciabatta bun. Amazing! Be sure to try one of their speciality sodas made with real cane sugar.... More

Outstanding stop for a quick bite. Super tasty. Very friendly staff. Delicious meal. Menu has few options, yet each one is crafted so well. 2 downtown Vancouver locations. Worth the visit.

Just south of the steam clock there is a very good sandwich shop the will give you a great sandwich very quick and inexpensive. If it is a nice day, take your sandwich to the nearby park to eat. Not many meter parking spots nearby so not really worth driving to.

simple efficient beautifully hand crafted meat sandwiches - the porcetta with salsa verde is a pork lovers dream. Fresh, friendly and fun - helpful staff. It is a small menu - so fussy eaters/children might find it hard to find something they like...

I went with a friend for lunch during work after hearing all the rage about it. It was quite delicious with three different choices..including a veg option..the meat was juicy and roasted that day. One thing to note..this isn't a restaurant as much as a quick eat and go type experience. It attracts a lot of ppl on a quick... More
