This pizza is amazing. Delicious combinations. Fresh ingredients. You can also watch as your pizza is being made, which is cool. There are two locations, though the one in Cook St. Village is in a more interesting area. Both have great decor.

Have enjoyed this place several times over the last few weeks and each time only Bar seats available. That's perfectly fine as we are entertained by the oven and cooking staff. We've gone with their pizza special 2 out of 3 visits and loved it. Value, decor and service all score a 5!

Pizzeria Prima Strada makes pizza part of an elegant meal. Not only are their recipes novel, the quality is high and the restaurant is licenced. And you can see the cook at work.

We came here with friends who live nearby and had a great evening. The pizzas were excellent and they carry some nice Italian wine. The service was quick even though the restaurant was busy.

This was the first time I came back to Pizzeria Prima Strada in years after having moved away from Victoria. Luckily it was just as amazing as I remembered! There's a great selection of pizzas, all of which I have found to have a really delicious base and fresh toppings. The pizzas are never greasy and don't make you feel... More

I don't understand why people would suggest this to tourists. -Pizza was soggy -undercooked -my pizza was in a puddle of oil -I was able to fold the pizza because the crust wasn't crispy If you want to pay $18 for soggy pizza, this is the place for you. I've never reviewed anything on Trip Advisor and was so shocked... More

First- I was here with my elderly mum, at 4:30 in the afternoon- so that may colour the review somewhat. The place itself is lovely, cozy and inviting, except for the sound of chairs scraping on the bare floor. The service was prompt, friendly, efficient- no problem, the wine arrived (very small serving). We shared a margarita pizza, which is... More

This is my third visit. Consistent quality. The olive appetizer is a great starter. The large red olives are delicious and can be purchased at Italian imports. I would recommend the potentia layered with Caponata and potentia!

We dined as a party of four and chose a pizza each to share. The pizzas were totally delicious with great wholemeal bases and interesting and flavoursome toppings. The service was helpful and friendly. An experience not to be missed.
