Simple but Sublime

I was skeptical when I saw the long lines at the Hastings location, but I endured the wait and had the most incredible Porchetta sandwich ever. The pork roast was juicy and aromatic, and cut up into small pieces that were place on a wonderful ciabatta roll with salsa verde, sweet mustard and... read more

Seriously, this is an amazing place. Fantastic sandwiches. A few options each day but all are worth trying.

This spot was nearly perfect. Meat and bread - the name says it all. Had the Porchetta sandwich and it was just outstanding.

I ordered a Porchetta Sandwich at their Cambie location today and unfortunately 3/4 of the meat I had in my sandwich was quite dry. The last 1/4 was quite good but I still think it needs a little bit of "something" to boost the flavour up to fantastic levels.. I did love the pork, cracklings and the sauce.. but It... More

We went here for lunch. The sandwiches were so delicious, the soup was great too. The restaurant was very hip. We almost didn't fit in. Afterwards we both had a little bit of heartburn, which isn't necessarily the restaurant's fault. But there's no telling. Overall, a good place to eat.

Was in the area for a conference, and was walking by and saw how packed it was so decided to try this place out. It was extremely crowded and there's no set sitting, but a constant movement of people, no worries about not finding a spot. Had the porschetta, delicious, was absolutely stuffed at the end. Food was pretty cheap... More

This is not fine a fine dining experience. It is delicious casual lunch food. All of their sandwiches are fantastic but if it's your first time you should have their signature sandwich Porchetta with Salsa Verde. It is to die for.

Porchetta with salsa verde on freshly baked buns with crispy pork rind served on a wooden board with a dollop of mustard. You gotta try it!! Ties Via Tevere Pizzeria Inc for best meal we had while in Vancouver.

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.
