Probably not the review title you were expecting for someplace that's not a pizza joint or even Italian! I ordered the Mediterranean (roasted vegetables) but with regular mozarella instead of goat cheese, and it really was the best pizza I've ever had - thin, crispy, beautifully seasoned (fresh shredded basil) - I'll go back there in a second!
My friend ordered the butternut squash soup, and I tried a taste of it - also outstanding. The rest of the menu looked good - I'll definitely go back to try more (although it will be hard NOT to order that pizza!)
This is a nice, cozy little neighbourhood restaurant. Very pleasant esthetically, good ambiance, and the service was great.
My only criticism is that it was NOISY. I wish Vancouver restaurant designers would learn about a thing called sound reflection - and acoustic treatment! I was sitting 2 feet across from my friend but had a sore throat by the end of the night from having to talk so loud (all reflected background noise, not the music!)
I guess I have 1 other minor nitpick, which is that it would be really nice to for once go to a Vancouver restaurant that does NOT have a TV. There was a day when TVs were only for sports bars, and I miss those days. It's such an ambiance-killer. But I know I'm not going to win that battle...
I read some other reviews that criticized the service -- either we were very lucky, or this restaurant has made a serious effort to improve the service because it was great.
Overall, I would highly recommend this place.
