How many pizza places can tell you that their dough is freshly made or that the tomatoes they use are 100% vine ripened? Megabite Pizza in Vancouver gives you that and more as part of their outstanding pizza creation and delivery service. You get that plus a delicious bowl of poutine with whatever you like. The pizzas are made to perfection, whether it is specialty meat, specialty veggie or whatever your favorite pizza is. And if that wasn't good enough, Megabite pizza gives back to the community by taking care of the schools. It's another great reason to support them.
Laguna Blu's culinary experts fill their menu with a range of Italian offerings concocted from a selection of organic products, fresh seafood, and choice cuts of meat. Dining groups huddle and draw battle plans for their forks to divvy up starter dishes, including calamari served with marinara sauce. Skilled chefs add flavourful touches to house pasta dishes, such as spaghetti bolognese, which showcases ground veal coated in house-made tomato sauce and parmesan cheese, and an oven-braised lamb-shank entree delights palates with its blend of seasonings. Meanwhile, mouths melt the sablefish entree, coated in a white-wine caper glaze and flanked by a bevy of basmati rice and spring vegetables. Meals further pair with sips of beer, mixed drinks, or dancing potions from the bar menu, such as the Laguna Blu martini, a potable amalgamation of blue Curacao, raspberry, and vodka.
At Trilussa Pizza & Pane, it's all about the dough. Roman-born baker Alessandro Fonseca has been working on the recipe professionally since he was 18, and every day at Trilussa, he hand-stretches it and anoints it with 100% cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil. Once it rises, it's ready to be shaped into baguettes, buns, flatbread, and, of course, pizza crust.
True to the traditional food and square-wheeled cars of the streets of Rome, the pizzas arrive in oblong slabs?measured by length, not diameter. Served cold for an antipasto-like experience, specialty pizzas come topped with ingredient combos such as the caprese, with tomato, bocconcini, and organic salad, or the Vancouver, topped with salmon and organic salad. Hot options include pesto, potatoes, and a variety of Italian meats. In either case, waitstaff will gladly hand out forks and knives to tackle the unusually substantial piles of ingredients.
Trilussa is more than just a spot for dinner and lunch (when panini on the house-made bread make for a quick bite). "You'd do well to start the day here, too, with a coffee and the Buongiorno panino," Vancouver Magazine recommends; there are pastries and espresso drinks as well.
If you’ve been on the lookout for a come-as-you-are type of restaurant to enjoy some home-style Italian cuisine, this is it! They take pride in their simplicity, which, when combined with a collection of fresh ingredients, creates masterfully delicious dishes. Grab a table on the patio to take advantage of the comfortable weather, or step inside and check out the modern Italian décor. Feel like pasta? Try the gnocchi, which features Italian sausage and roasted garlic in a bath of tomato cream sauce. Alternatively, share a freshly crafted pizza such as the Tartufo e Funghi (Portobello mushrooms, truffle honey, tapenade, asiago and arugula) with family and friends.
Open from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m. every day of the week, Brado's Pizza is the place to go in Vancouver when you get a late-night craving. Although the pizza served here is top-notch, the menu item that has locals coming back again and again is the poutine, featuring cheese curds over fries and topped with a homemade vegetarian-friendly gravy that will make your mouth water. If you can't make up your mind, have the best of both worlds and order the famed poutine pizza, featuring a cheese pizza topped with the same ingredients that make up the poutine platter. Order by the slice or grab a whole pie for a unique dining experience that is purely Brado's.
Dominoes hardly needs any introduction- when it comes to franchise chain pizza, many consider them to be the best there is. They’ve really done an impressive job stepping up their game in recent years, as indicated by creations such as their Handmade Pan Pizza which uses fresh dough as opposed to the frozen goop that other chains thaw out each morning. The crunchy, yet chew taste of their signature classic crust is so iconic, most regulars could probably identify it blindfolded. To top it all off, Domino’s pricing is probably the best in town- you’d be hard pressed to find a mainstream pizza chain that offers better value for money.
