The staff was very friendly, and the decor was very comfortable! I had the baked lasagna, well the flavors were amazing! My man had the grilled chicken burger with goat cheese and caramelised onions, fries, salad! But the only sad part is we ate all our food because it was so good, and did not have room for desert!! So... More

We heard wonderful things about this restaurant so decided to try it out on our last night of our family vacation to gabriola island. When we arrived it was 530 and asked if we had reservations, which we did not, and I didn't see why we would need them as the restaurant was half full. We were told we could... More

Have family on the island, and we were all there for a wedding. One night we ordered from here, picked up the order. The pizza was absolutely delicious especially the tomato base.

I've been a part-time resident of the island for 44 years. Hands down, this is the best food and service this island has ever seen. The restaurant industry can be challenging, as I know from working in it for 11 years. As there are not a lot of options on Gabriola, it's hard to stand out. Sharon has a great... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Firstly, we assumed it was a nice rustic pizza place, yet it was so much more than that! Firstly we hadn't booked, but if we'd known how good this place was and therefore popular, it would have occurred to us we should have! Nevertheless, the manager was able to accommodate us (luckily we'd... More

A fantastic restaurant. Great service and a range of interesting pizzas. Dined with friends and we all agreed they were possibly the best pizzas we'd ever tasted.

So nice to hear...thank you. We use Caputo flour imported from Italy for our pizzas. They have been making this flour for decades and it really makes a delicious crust. Thanks again. More

Arguably the best pizza on Vancouver Island is on Gabriola Island. Thin crust, local ingredients creatively arranged, and a fabulous staff combine for a great night out. It really is worth the ferry trip. We make the trip from Nanaimo at least once a month.
