Situated in an unreconstructed area of Main street, near to Pacific Central Station, this gem of a restaurant looks small and uninteresting from the outside. However, once through the door, be prepared to accept some old-fashioned Vancouver hospitality, and some great food.
I recommend the home-cured antipasti, which, I am reliably informed, is cured and then dried in the upstairs attic. The large board is definitely too much for two people, with a wide variety of meats (varying depending on what's in season), maybe a terrine, and chicken liver mousse, along with a selection of home made breads.
Pizzas are pleasing, with thin rustic crust and a wide variety of toppings. The chef's special is normally good - though I recommend you ask for details just in case (the Turkey, sage and brussels sprout pizza I had one Christmas time was fantastic!)
A good choice of wines (inexpensively priced for Vancouver) and a high-quality beer list make this a good value meal out.
Be prepared to queue for maybe 10 minutes at busy times, and be aware that they do occasionally shut before the advertised hour on "quiet nights"
