My friends and I were visiting Quebec City for the first time for a 3 night, 4 day trip and we were initially looking at different restaurants for having lunch or dinner. My friend told me to look up the reviews for La Pizzaio and mentioned that it is ranked #6. Therefore, I checked the positive reviews and I told my friend we should definitely check it out.
It was not that far from our hotel in Old Quebec, I would say roughly a decent 10 minute walk up from rue St. Anne down to rue Saint-Paul? When we got there, we noticed how busy the restaurant was which was a good thing and the owners who were also the waiters from which I have come to known via the reviews kindly informed us that it would take roughly about 15 minutes. After exactly 15 minutes, we were seated at our table.
The table arrangement was very neat and the decor inside the restaurant was excellent and the choice of music as well. One of the owners gave us our menus and eventually Marco (the primary owner) came to our table and asked how we are doing, etc and asked us what we would like to have. When we gave our orders (I chose the vegetarian pizza), When I requested for the vegetarian pizza, Marco kindly asked whether I am a pure vegetarian and I said yes I am. This is a great thing in my books as I have never been inquired at all about my special dietary restrictions at all in my life at a restaurant despite it being a chain owned or a family owned restaurant.
Marco was also sweet enough to give us a small tasting appetizer (I forgot what it was called) but three of them had Chorizo (Portuguese Sausage) for my friends and the other was vegetarian with sun dried tomato and Marco kindly informed that one was vegetarian.
When Marco brought us the pizzas, it was DELICIOUS. It was the best thin crust pizza I ever had and my friends also enjoyed their pizzas (I forget what they had) but I could see the enjoyment in their faces. For $10 to $13 it is definitely worth every dollar and penny visiting this place. It was mouth watering.
Marco even suggested to us a few places to check out for the night life around Quebec City and we thanked him for that.
I know for sure I would visit this place in the future again.
PS Marco, if you are reading this, my friends and I were the ones who were visiting from Toronto - a group of four guys.
