Good, fresh, tasty pizzas

Waiting is part of the story esp on the weekend. Walk-in reservations only!! We went due to advert in the DOXA festival. Glad to have gone. Good service, fun to see pizza oven and all fresh ingredients (esp spices) made in sight. Wines looked good; I was the 'designated driver' so picked... read more

Expectations were high as this restaurant was architecturally appealing. We found the soup salty and the pizza just average - nothing special. Staff seemed self serving as one of the staff said they like the air conditioning that cold in the restaurant even though customers found it too cold, inconsistent service as only one table I could hear the waiter...

If you want to eat a real pizza there's no other place! The place is cool and the quality of the food is very high. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Unpretentious facility. Comparable to Smashing Tomato in Lexington KY which is also certified. Helpful wait staff and friendly . Warm olives for appetizer- tasty although I wonder if they were as ripe as they should have been. The Margherita pizza was as it should have been, kissed by the flame. Dessert selected was tiramisu which was classic and recommendable. Suggest... More

This is authentic great tasting wood oven pizza. It's not too salty and the crust is perfectly chewy. My favourite is the margherita pizza and my boyfriend's is the Diavola.

An impromptu Friday night dinner out took us to the east edge of Gastown where Nicli has done an outstanding job renovating an older building. Simple modern pizzeria with a simple but excellent menu. Service was very good. The tuna salad was excellent as was the anchovie pizza. Good cocktail/beer and wine list. Great evening and good prices.

My second visit today and it was just as good as my first visit in Feb. Fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked, with service spot on. Nice atmosphere too.

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... 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
