Now when you want to celebrate a birthday, you must do it in style! What did Vancity Girlfriend want? She was hunting for a GOOD PIZZA joint and of course you must celebrate with sparkling wine.
We found Vancouver's East Side's Pizza Barbarella! Pizza and wine are the perfect combination. Since this is a hip joint, they don't take reservations on Friday nights. We met there at 7pm and had no problems getting a table for the four of us.
It's a quaint casual restaurant with the wood burning oven in the back for their famous thin crust pizza. It's casual but yet elegant at the same time. When you open up the wine list, you will be amazed at the affordable prices! A bottle of sparkling wine was only $25! I'd go back just for that.
We started with the bottle of sparkling wine and the antipasto appetizer. Then for the main course we ordered two pizzas for the four of us which was perfect to share. We had told the server that we were there for a birthday celebration so at the end of our meal she brought over a banoffee pie with a candle on top for dessert. YUM!
The thin crust pizzas were fresh and delicious. There's something about the flames of wood burning oven that gives the pizza the earthy taste and with the fresh organic ingredients on top, it's not a surprise that we devoured it!
