EAT Magazine's Exception Eats Awards

Oh how sweet it is. The last day of the 2010 Winter Olympics hosted in Beautiful British Columbia and PPS wins Gold in the 1st Annual EAT Magazine EE Awards! And the winning category for Prima Strada? Best Island restaurant to take the kids to and still enjoy fabulous food and no hairy eyeballs? No, no at Pizzeira Prima Strada we serve only (to quote a customer last week) "delectable" meat balls along with great pizza pies!

Our humble thanks for the votes and hats off to all the winners! Indeed, we are thankful to be part of a community of food lovers.

2010 is now well underway. For those of you lucky enough to be living on Southern Vancouver Island it is an exciting time to see cherry blossoms, crocus, and Pizzeria Prima Strada's new location.
We have got a few tricks up our sleeve this spring including, but not limited to a Brewmasters Dinner with Driftwood Brewery (April, tickets available soon), ICC's Defending Our Backyard festival (May 10, tickets available now) and Averill Creek Vineyards Opening Day (May 01, more information to follow). This is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for more delicious events featuring western Canada's only authentic Neapolitan, wood fired pizzeria.

Want to create your own memorable event? Contact Andrew at andrew@primastrada.com or 250-590-4388 today!
