Trilussa serves authentic Roman pizza, soup, paninis and pane (Roman bread) using traditional methods and fresh, high quality ingredients.
Trilussa is a new Roman-style pizza joint replacing the defunct Re-entry Espresso. They have renovated inside giving it a clean, warm and open feeling. When we went, there was a bunch of pizza available for immediate take-out so if you ever wanted to quickly grab a slice and roll, that option is available.
We ordered the Garbatella (sausage, mozzarella), Margherita (tomato, basil, mozzarella), and the Trevi (tomato sauce, pesto, fresh chillis). They were all very good; simple, fresh ingredients, nice thin and crispy crust. My favourite was the Garbatella as I really enjoyed the sausage on it.
The owner was very friendly, gave us some samples and even offered to make a custom pizza if we wanted.
I will return and probably try everything on the menu. I just added this to my list of favourite restaurants on Dine Here. Recommended.
When we found out a new pizza place offering "Pane Romano" opened, we had to give it try. There are only a handful of places in Vancouver that claim to make pizza this way, so it was worth making the comparison.
We arrived and seated ourselves, and observed the counter where there were a dozen or so "pane romano" already waiting to be sliced and served. Instead we ordered something from the menu (so that it would be hot out of the oven).
We opted for the Garbatella pizza (sausage and mozarella) and the "Vancouver Pizza" (cold pizza with mescalin greens, cold smoked salmon, aioli, and lemon). We also ordered a bowl of garden vegetable soup (see the attached photographs).
The soup arrived quickly. It was quite good (seemed to be made from scratch), tasty, and fresh, a couple of slices of house made bread.
The "pane" arrived about 10 minutes later.
The Garbatella was savoury, and delicious, the crust was firm with a light crunch.
The "Vancouver" was wonderful, with the smooth silky smoked salmon, the hint of lemon, and the tang of the aioli, and the freshness of the greens. Likewise, the crust was firm and slightly crunchy.
The value rating assigned here, I rate compared to the other "Roman" style pizza places, it's quite reasonable here.
The room is clean and simple, almost cafe like, but with rich colors.
The server, and the pizzaola were both pleasant and charming.
After reading great reviews about this place my father and I came by on a friday night. We walked into an empty pizza joint with a diner like interior. There was an option between eating already made pizza that had been sitting there for who knows how long or getting them to make a pizza. I was starving so took a small piece of the pre made muchroom, it was hard, cardboard like crust, a mistake to order. We got them to make us each a fresh margherita pizza next. They were better, less hard of a crust but still nothing special. The crust is pre ready, not fresh dough here. The service and value here were both great but sorry the food was average to me, 2.5 out of 5. No need to return.
When i first moved to Main street i stumbled upon Trulissa. Mario, the chef is completely crazy and makes amazing Pizza! It's so good that I'm addicted now and refuse to eat pizza anywhere else! Watch out, you'll have the same experience (; My favorite is the mushroom, the margharita is also extra good!
