My second favourite food (first being Mexican) its Italian. I love the pastas, pastries, coffees, and of course, the pizza.
Pacifico Pizzeria is located right beside the movie theatre. Great location if you want to grab a bite to eat before or after a movie. The menu features a large variety of pastas, antipastos, soups, salads, and of course, pizza.
What makes a good pizza? to me its all about a the crust and the sauce. I love a thin, crispy crust and a tangy, sauce. Pacifico makes a great pizza. We started with the Margherita – a classic Italian favourite with crushed tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil. It was awesome. Such a simple combination yet so tasty. The fresh basil really makes a difference. I also recommend adding a little bit of fresh ground pepper. The server will bring it to the table if you request it. We also had the Caprese – Sliced tomatoes with bocconcini, red onion and capers. Beautiful presentation.
I gotta tell you, their pizza sauce is awesome. Loved every bite. The pizzas range from $15 for a medium to a $25 for a large. The size of the pizzas are very generous. There were three of us, and we still have pizza left over to take home. A good value for your money.
You can also make your own pizza, additional toppings range from $2 to $6 per topping. There are many to choose from, including wild BC salmon, artichoke hearts, smoked gouda and grilled eggplant as well as favourites such as pineapple, mushrooms, ham and salami.
For dessert we had the strawberry cheesecake. It was very creamy with a cookie crust. It was big enough to share. We also had some delicious Italian coffees. Overall a very good experience. I will definitely come back to try out their pastas next!
