1190 Victoria, Vancouver BC, Canada
Named for a street in Naples where the patriarch of the owners’ family was raised, this place is all about creating la vera Neapolitan pizza. Via Tevere is meticulous about using imported double-zero flour, San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte mozzarella, and extra virgin olive oil. Its rustic masterpieces are crafted under Old World chandeliers in the centre of the room. When they’re ready, the pizzas slip into a pale-blue-tiled, dome-shaped fire oven that’s crossed two continents to get here and looks like a work of art.
Highlights on the menu include a Prosciutto e Rucola ($16) that sprouts with fresh arugula as you roll your thin-crusted wedge Naples-styles to eat it, while the Cappricciosa ($20) is a heftier blend of meats, artichokes, and mushrooms. Wash them down with a tumbler of red, follow them with Graffe de Nutella fritters to share, and you’ll swear you’re sitting in some hidden heritage hangout in Il Centro Storico.
This neighbourhood fave is set in a historical Drive-area block where they’ve restored the charming old Shelly Bakery mural that emblazoned the building in the 1920s. Look for the picture-perfect vintage Fiat 500 Cinquecento parked out front.
