It was a busy Friday so we day at the bar, which we actually looked better because you can watch them make your pizza! I am a huge fan of adding fresh prosciutto to the mushroom pizza! Parking is also store easy around there!

I have never had a cheese pizza like this, with gorgonzola cheese! Oh my, it was delicious! Thin crust but the last piece is getting a bit soggy:( I need to eat faster. Amazing flavour, and service! Thank you !

Got into Victoria late and hungry- ordered several pies from Prima Strada and was very pleased. Nice sauce and crust. A bit light on toppings though, especially on the mushroom pie.
