Greater Victora Business Awards Winners!

We didn't expect to win - being in a ballroom with 350 members of the Victoria business community and an award finalist is actually pretty heady stuff. Perhaps the highlight of the evening was when Sasha Angus handed me the award and shared he'd had 2 pizzas at PPS before coming to the event! Yes, Sasha and his family shared a Funghi and Bambino at Bridge Street before he joined the festivities!

Our congratulations to all of participants in the 2011 Business Awards. Heartfelt thanks to our team for making Pizzeria Prima Strada an award winning company!

Mangia Abruzzo!

We are gearing up for the second installment of our Italian Long Table Dining Series. These 4 course meals are one part Italian wine club, one part dinner party, one part learning experience served up with a healthy dose of laughter. Our next region of focus will be Abruzzo, the amazing region where the mountains meet the sea and over 1/3 is protected as parkland.

Alex has created a tempting menu that highlights the region. The menu? Fish stew, grilled lamb and fresh pasta aglio e olio. Dessert is in the works and will be a great finish to the meal. Of course there will be the deliciously rustic wines of Abruzzo to be enjoyed throughout the meal.

Please join us at our Bridge Street location on Wednesday, April 27 at 7 p.m. for dinner. Make new friends, enjoy great food and wine and above all, have fun!

The meal will include three (4oz) pours of wine. The number of guests is limited to 20.

For additional information or to book your reservation, call 250.590.4388 or email Andrew.

Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards

The invitation for the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards arrived with no mention of what category PPS might be a winner in. Matt & Cristen headed to Van on Tuesday curious and impressed. A packed reception with lots of eats and drinks had them ever more curious. Taking seats, they found PPS nominated in the Best Victoria category. Other nominees? Zambri's, Brassiere L'Ecole, Cafe Brio and Ulla! Such a distinguished group.

Prima Strada received Honorable Mention as "B.C.'s best pizza joint." Our congratulations to all the winners.
