Cotto Enoteca Pizzeria6011 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Yet another corporate American-style restaurant
Submitted Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

I can't believe I read a review posted here that said that it was great to finally have a wood-fired pizza place in North Burnaby ... I guess he or she had never bothered visiting Domenico's! We had heard so much hype about this newly opened place, and were therefore really looking forward to it. We'd heard it was 'authentic', which the Proscuitto pizza we had definitely wasn't: Too thick, not charred, not crisp, and the combination of flavours simply didn't work. The sauce was unhappily too sweet, and the topping of arugula was sparse - I will give it that there was plenty of flavourful proscuitto ... The salad we shared, the Insalata Rucola, was tasty and generous, but again, the Balsamic drizzle was overly sweet, and the flavours didn't seem to blend well. Really, the best part of our meal was the marvelous, crisp, toasty and tender slices of focaccia with a heavily oiled, garlicky mashed chick pea spread - our hopes were raised, only to be dashed when our actual pizza and salad arrived. The service was attentive, but flawed (we had to ask several times to get some minor additional items, and waited a good 10 minutes after asking before receiving our bill). A huge complaint is the standard corporate decor (think Cactus Club), the repetitive heavy-beat music, and the female hostesses dressed all in black with plunging necklines. Are we such a provincial little town that we still buy this? Some originality would be nice.

East is East4413 Main St, Vancouver
Incredible Service and Delicious Food
Submitted Sunday, June 6, 2010 - 4:44pm [Dine in]

My husband and I decided to forego our usual lunch choices and try something different, so we headed to Main Street, parked south (no meters!) and walked north perusing menus when posted and whether or not places were busy. It being a rainy Sunday, most places were pretty hopping, but nothing appealed to us food-wise. When we walked past East is East a very pleasant young woman offered us samples - eggplant Roti rolls, grilled stuffed Roti, mango/pistachio and coffee/chocolate smoothies - and we were instantly hooked by the amazingly delicious food. I don't know how any hungry person could walk past this place after sampling some of their dishes. We took a bit of time over the menu choices, and finally opted for sharing a platter, as we were both pretty full from all those samples! And about those samples - they just kept bringing us more and more. The two dishes we chose for our platter were coconut lime salmon and saag paneer, but over the course of our meal our server also brought us a dish of chicken masala and lamb, as well as chai, and we had to turn down additional food 'cause we were stuffed.

If you're not a huge eater, opt for sharing, which brings the $17 cost of the platter to a more than reasonable lunch choice. Next time we're going for the double Roti (I've GOT to have that eggplant dish again) which includes salad and rice as well as two Roti rolls for $13 or so.

A lovely atmosphere, exceptionally welcoming (and generous) servers, and a marvelous selection of outstandingly flavourful food make this a solid choice. Highly recommended.

Got to love Domenico's!

I don't really want to share, but I feel I owe it to other pizza lovers out there: This is really wonderful pizza. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives in the area, and I can't comment on their other menu selections 'cause we've only eaten the brick oven pizza here, but it is totally to die for! The service is welcoming and friendly, the room is warm and charming, and from the moment you step through the entrance the inviting wood-burning smell of the brick oven washes over you ... just thinking about eating there makes my stomach growl. Enjoy!

Stan's Pizza4527 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Stan's NOT the Man
Submitted Thursday, May 14, 2009 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

After reading the very good reviews on this site, my husband and I decided to try out Stan's instead of our usual pizza place in North Burnaby. What a disappointment! First of all, how can anyone describe this place as "intimate"? For sure, it's smallish, but totally lacking in any kind of visual appeal or comfort. We amused ouselves watching the hockey game on one of the LCD screen TVs mounted on the wall (the only decoration) which was a good thing 'cause we waited quite awhile for that pizza to be delivered - and it was delivered to a bare table - no cutlery, napkins, S & P - nothing. We had to ask for cutlery, and that took awhile, as well. Before I even had a chance to bite into the pie I was already unhappy to see that the toppings (green pepper, onions and mushrooms) had been cut into little, bitty dice, and the resemblance to a frozen pizza unfortunately didn't end there. The crust was OK, but the onions (although cut small) were of the eye-watering variety as they had hardly even heated up, let alone cooked, and the cheese was that awful translucent gelatin kind that really is "cheese" in name only. Both of us decided that a frozen pizza would have been at least as good a choice as Stan's, but I have to say that it was inexpensive!!! So, if you're looking for cheap, but pretty lousy pizza served in an uncomfortable, rather ugly setting with slow and inattentive service, then Stan's is the place for you.
