There are times when you just don’t feel like sharing a Pirate Pak at White Spot or a dip cone at the Q. Luckily, we have two wonderful local options sure to satisfy the ultra-foodie parent and the picky child alike.
Pizzeria Prima Strada has created two restaurants in Victoria, born from the idea that there should be more neighbourhood, family-friendly places offering exceptional food. Modelled after the traditional pizzerias of Italy, owners Cristen and Geoffrey Dallas, savvy parents of two, have created two restaurants in this city unlike any other. The beauty is not just that the food tastes delish (of course it does), but that they make it seem so simple.
The menu is small, and consists of fresh, local, and simple ingredients on traditional wood-fired thin crust pizzas. They offer seasonal salads, antipasto, and fresh gelato for dessert. Local ingredients like Cowichan Valley buffalo milk mozzarella and freshly made fennel sausage from a local butcher are what make this pizza stand apart from the others. They’re open for lunch and dinner and do take-out as well—the perfect menu item for an afternoon lunch in the park of your choice. Mother’s Day picnic, perhaps?
