“Finally authentic pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Finally somewhere in town to get a real Italian pizza, love that they got fresh basil, even duck as a choice. Great wines and beer to go with the pizza too. The decor is very refreshing too!!

“Fantastic for the general public, so-so for purists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Let me state this at the very beginning. This is a great pizzeria which is blessed with a wonderful staff, attractive decor, and even reasonably affordable pricing. For anyone new to "wood fired oven" pizzas, this pizza will be a revelation, so it is highly recommended.

Unfortunately I have eaten WELL over a thousand pizzas over the last half a century in Naples, Italy, (the birthplace of pizza) and to compare those original pizzas with what is served here is... well... let's just say that it's a great pizza for Kamloops.

This restaurant does a reasonable job at imitating Neapolitan pizza but it's somewhat akin to passing off a Timex as a Rolex. Sure, they both fit on your wrist and tell time, but they really aren't the same thing.

- What is that oven gizmo? It certainly isn't woodfired as there isn't any wood anywhere near it. It's a form of a gas oven masquerading as a woodfired one. If you have eliminated the charcoal charring at the base of the crust what is there left... just baked flour and water!
- The Fior Di Latte has absolutely no flavor as befits cow's milk. Only bufala (yak) milk mozzarella belongs on a Neapolitan pizza.
- The sauce is not from San Marzano tomatoes so might as well be on a kid's canned spaghetti meal.

As is evident the seal of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana is nowhere to be found. That is a total shame as it would be a considerable feather in Kamloops' culinary cap to have a member pizzeria. There are no members between Vancouver and Toronto so the hope of having a real Neapolitan pizza in the Thompson Okanagan may just remain a dream.

“Awesomely unique new restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Great new place to eat in town! First walking in, you enter this wide open concept restaurant, beautifully decorated, and you're automatically drawn in. You walk up to the food counter and you can see the dough ready to be topped with whatever your heart desires, many unique toppings like duck, smoked salmon, crème fraîche, prosciutto and all kinds of other cured meat, different cheese, you name it! All fresh! You see your pizza being made (and cooked) right in front of your eyes. And the taste! Fantastico! Fresh and new! Great staff too!

“Delicious and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

I have eaten here twice now and tried a couple of different pizzas. The pizzas are customizable so you get the perfect pizza you want. The girls who make it are friendly, chatty and upbeat and the owner (or maybe manager?) comes out to see if you are enjoying your meal, it makes it clear they care.

The pizzas are made and cooked quickly. They even have coke and sprite in a glass bottle or a fountain drink as choices (and of course beer/wine as well).

If you can't finish the pizza they will bring you a box and you can take the rest home with you which is very useful. I ordered one pizza with a drink and it came to around $15 but if you share with someone it is even cheaper. (If you are going to split a bill somebody needs to bring cash.)

I can't wait to go back again and try the pasta this time!
