Pizza is amazing but head chef/owner needs to get on with the good he serves and get a hands on manager to run front of house as service is appalling!!!!
Everytime I go have a bite to eat there's always a new new waitress that hasn't been shown what to do!!!
Don't get me wrong food is amazing just needs some consistent service!

We have eaten in the restaurant and take out. Really good pizza from the wood burning oven, and the pasta is always very good. Our go to spot, when we are too tired to cook, but want a really good "home cooked" meal. (Cuz it tastes like a meal a Nona would make for her family). Yumm!

Authentic Italian cuisine, like pasta, veal parmigiano, chicken ravioli or various pizza. Extremely yummy. Not overpriced like many Italian places in Vancouver can be.

We did not expect this neighborhood restaurant to be really Italian, and found that to be the case - except for the somewhat dated background music and wallpaintings. The food was OK, though. Fresh salad and well-cooked lamb shank. We did not try any pizzas but will give those a try soon.

Order the pizza !!

In a single sentence, this really says it all.

My kids and I love pizza and this is place reminds us of our trip to Rome, where the pizza was a delight.

If you're looking for Hawaiian pineapple, they don't offer it. This place is thin, crispy, light crust and fresh ingredients --- especially the herbs !!

We've been here numerous times along with my vegetarian family and friends --- all of us have enjoyed their pizza equally.

The rest of the food? It's okay but not anything nearly as good as their pizzas.

The room is a bit cramped but the pizza and friendly servers more than make up for the lack of space.
