Being great lovers of Neapolitan-style pizza for many years, my wife and I have been pleased to see the increasing interest in this type of pizza in this part of the world. We had already tried other pizzerias of this type in Victoria and Vancouver, and only recently heard about Via Tevere, so we felt we should try it.
We found the pizzeria to have a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff to be both friendly and accommodating. For wine, we chose the Cannonau, produced by Argiolas in Sardinia, which was very good.
Our antipasti included the Caprese and the Frittura Napoletana. The Caprese was a little disappointing, as the tomatoes did not have much flavour and the cheese was a bit tough and lacked flavour. The Frittura Napoletana was delicious, and comparable to what I have had in Naples.
Since this was our first time there, we chose to share a Margherita pizza, as this simple pizza is usually the best indicator of the quality of the ingredients and the skills of the pizzeria. The pizza crust had a very good texture and flavour, the tomato passata was good but could have used a little salt, the cheese unfortunately had the same problems as in the Caprese (both tough and lacking flavour), and there was not really enough basil on top to taste it. However, when we asked for more basil, we were accommodated very quickly and pleasantly.
We then shared the Torta Caprese, which was very well made and tasted delicious.
The espressos were well made, both short and strong without the common problem elsewhere of too much acidity. The grappa was also excellent.
Overall, we found the meal to be very enjoyable, and feel that the owners and staff are well focused on the customers, and doing their best to please you.
I would certainly return, and do recommend this pizzeria to others who appreciate this type of food.
