Excellent food, service and prices. Nothing tastes as good as fresh food cooked over an open wood flame fire.

Thank Verna W

Visited Gabriola in July 2012- Best pizza we ever tasted, definitely recommend it to those who visit the island. Our waitress was extremely friendly and gave us prompt service. Loved the decor and how clean the place was as well. Will be going back.

I made a reservation for my boyfriend and i for our anniversary and asked the lady if it was possible that we could get a nice seat, and they kindly took down my request. we took a 44$ ferry from Nanaimo just to go to this restaurant; it looked neat online! We arrive, and i really appreciate the ambiance and decor. After waiting for a very long time, we settle that i have a reservation. We are then told we will just have to wait in the lobby (as tables sit unoccupied,) because they don't want to overwhelm their kitchen with too many tickets... My boyfriend and i ask if we can just take our table and they can tell us when they are ready, and the woman agrees and seats us in a nice booth. Five minutes later a new woman appears at our table, and says without announcement, and in a raised voice "So i know it is your anniversary, but i will be putting you in another table, because there are just too many people to seat tonight." The entire restaurant was staring at us. it was embarrassing and unprofessional. had the server kindly said 'hey guys, il be your server tonight, would you mind if i moved you to another table? That way i can seat more people and serve you better.' We did not appreciate being treated as an inconvenience.
After we move, dropping what has just happened, We say we are ready to order. The server says for sure i will be right back, and disappears for almost 10 minutes before returning. After we order, a girl comes along with fa cassia bread and asks if we want a piece. We say definitely and i ask if it is house made, it looks delicious! She pauses and answers with " That's funny, i always get asked that and i always ask the kitchen but can never remember!" .. So no then.
The food was tasty, thank goodness. A heads up, they waaaay over-do their shredded basil on their pasta. And their home fries are great, if you love potato slices covered in seasoning ( i actually do, but he could hardly eat one piece!)

I apologize for the detail! But after spending 80$ for the experience, and being treated like an inconvenience since we walked in the door, i will not be going back to this place. Maybe if it wasn't for this one server, we would have been able to see past it. At least the other girls still smiled once in a while!

Food was average - portions small. Curry seasoned fries was not a hit with us - love curry just not on our fries. Wished they had told us. Slow service. Had to ask for water refills. Would not return.

This was our second visit to Woodfire Pizza & Pasta. Our first experience had been fine, enough to warrant a second try, but nothing special. This time, however, we were very pleased and gladly recommend it to anyone visiting Gabriola. For starters, we shared a marinated olives appetizer, which was served warm with bread on the side. It was very tasty and the serving size was generous and easily satisfied both of us. My wife had the pork ribs with new potatoes and grilled vegetables. Her meal was delicious and so large she could not finish it all. I had the lasagna and was similarly very pleased. The service was attentive and very friendly. All in all, we had a very good meal and we look forward to going there again when we return to Gabriola.
