Worth the wait

I've been to Nicli a bunch of times now and pretty much without fail there will be a bit of a wait on the weekend (not too long - usually around 30 min). But without fail it's always worth it. Because they're setup to text you when your table is ready, you can pop out and go for a walk... read more

...although the neighbourhood is still pretty sketchy the further along if you pass Main St into strathcona. Anyway this restaurant is classy, beautifully decorated, incredible wood fired pizza oven and fresh herbs, excellent bubbly service and a waiter who was happy to share suggestions with us tourists about where to go next. My friends avoid pork so we had the... More

I visited the restaurant 3 times during my last business trip. Eating alone and with friends I found the atmosphere engaging and the staff friendly especially eating alone at the bar. This is authentic Italian Naples Pizza. The service was impeccable. If your going at the weekend prepare to Que. it's a first come first served policy.

Ate dinner tonight at Nickli Antica Pizzeria...the pizza was acceptable (I had a Pizza Diavola) but nothing extraordinary. I don't understand the hype. Cautionary notes...1) this place is in the bad part of town, don't be fooled by the "Historic Gastown" description. It is in the bad part of town plain and simple. You have to be careful. 2) they...

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The pizza is amazing - thin crust and not too cheesy. Don't for get to dip it into the rosemary or chili pepper olive oil! Good wine list as well. If you go for dinner be prepared to wait as they do not take reservations and it is a popular place.... More

Quite unexpectedly, on a first time visit to Vancouver, a small ad for Nicli's drove us to try this 'stand-out'. We sat at the bar and imbibed in the best pizza dining experience that North America has to offer. The method of preparation, the combination of flavors, and the service were simply exquisite. Jamie who introduced us to a fabulous... More

I love pizza, but find some of the places that purport to be gourmet pizza as rather lackluster. This is far from true at Nicli Antica Pizzeria. Their technique of baking pizza for 90 seconds in a 900 degree (Fahrenheit) oven produces crispy, but not burnt pizza, and the ingredients do not dry out. The staff is exuberant, friendly, and...

The restaurant is certified Verace Pizza Napoletana, which means it meets the standard of pizza in Naples Italy. The pizza is spectacular, the service is friendly.

The best pizza in the city - hands down. We went with a couple that had just returned from Italy and they said the pizza was better at Nicli Antica Pizzeria then it was in Italy. Our server was most delightful and the food was oh so fresh! Loved the wine the server paired with our pizza and the salad... More

We went for pizza and salad here last evening and it was superb. We have been to Nicli many times since it first opened in 2011 and as far as we are concerned, we will plan to spend our hard earned dough on pizzas as often as we can at Nicli! It is still the best.
