Pizza made the way it was meant to be with new world flare. Interesting specials in the summer when they use local fruit. Menu is varied and you have to try the meatballs!

We were craving some tasty pizza, so went and picked up a sausage with buffalo mozzerella. Also added the spicy meatball appetizer, we also find the staff members very friendly & helpful.

My husband considers himself a pizza expert and this place is one of the top 10 places we've tried (and I'm embarrassed to say we've had pizza in over 25 countries...). Fire grilled crust was chewy and crispy, the ingredients were fresh and combos were interesting (we had the special). We also had their house made olives which I will... More

We went there last Friday evening, having an earlier dinner to beat the line! It was packed in there! We sat at a table, but next time I'll sit at the bar so I can watch all the magic pizza making happen. The friend that I went with always gets the same thing, so I copied her and loved it!!... More

I've been 3 times with different people and different days. The food is without fail fresh, delicious and prompt. The staff is friendly and accommodating with everyone. Love every pizza I've had, the meatball app is a definite must try, the prosecco is a good deal and a perfect compliment to the menu. I also tried the affogado this time-... More

This is a great place for a dining experience on a pizza! Staff are always friendly while the meat ball appetizer with a pizza satisfies our dinner needs. The cool drinks always tops off a great meal!

We stopped by, had not been since last winter. Something seemed off, restaurant not full and no lineup. We had really good service and the food was fine. Still seemed odd that it was quiet at dinner hour in December. We'll be back. You should go. You will like it.

Prima strada has a new location at Fort Street and Foul Bay in Oak Bay. It is certainly large and modern and destined to be very popular. Double check on the parking---a few spaces are available beside the building or in the underground Parking. I took my friend in hospital nearby a pizza. We ate one together. It traveled well...

A wood-fired pizza in a cozy environment complemented with a nice glass of wine makes for a perfect and inexpensive evening in Victoria. Great thin crust, cooked quickly and could certainly taste the sweet tomatoes complemented by the saltiness of chunks of mozzarella. Hadn't considered sitting at the bar but glad we did.

It was a rainy evening - around 5:30, so it was only 3/4 full. Service was good and I love the bar stool seats in front of the pizza -making station. The wine recommendation for the Pecorino was good. Roasted cauliflower/tuna salad. Very tasty, although I would have liked it warmed up a bit. The pizza was the evening special... More
