There are many pizza places to choose from on, or near, Commercial Drive in East Vancouver. I recently had the pleasure of finally trying Via Tevere Pizzeria, 1190 Victoria Drive.  I have attempted to go before, but the line ups were a regular sighting which obviously said something about what was waiting within. So one Sunday evening, our group came prepared to wait, but the wait wasn’t long at all.

Via Tevere Pizzeria has been open just over one year now. It is the making of two brothers, Dom and Frank, whose family roots are tied to Naples, Italy. They make true Neapolitan pizza translation very thin crust and I will add now delicious!  Their pizzas are 12” size and are perfect for sharing which is exactly what we did with all four of them. You know the brothers must be doing something right to be featured on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here which aired on April 12th.

The restaurant has character from the heritage building it is housed in, to the funky yellow 1969 Fiat 500 mini-car parked out front with Via Tevere branded on the side of the car. Then there is the wood fire brick oven, amazing chandeliers and not to mention the staff. The restaurant has a warmth to it and is very family friendly.  Via Tevere Pizzeria is open for dinner Tuesday to Thursday 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Sundays from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. and closed Mondays. If there is a wait, I promise it will be worth it.   Bon appetit!
