Gastown’s Nicli Antica Pizzeria Hopeful For December Opening


I spoke with Bill McCaig (of the hotly anticipated Nicli Antica Pizzeria) this morning and learned that his pizzeria – which aims to bring the first certified Neapolitan-style pizza to Vancouver – is once again delayed (ouch – originally slated for a July opening). He says work has continued apace and that the imported, wood-burning Acunto oven is installed and will be fired up for the first time in the next week. He’s also hired a front of house manager, an Italian-Montrealer named Gino Didomenico, so it’s gotta be getting close! “Mid-December, I hope” he says. Check out some new photos after the jump…

    Excited for this! It will be interesting to see how it fares with patrons not from the neighbourhood – it’s quite far east.

    I now look back at my experience so far and realize every story about the pitfalls and delays of opening a restaurant are true. I am very lucky that everyone is stoked about our opening, everything is coming together quite well and I thank all our fans for their patience, it will be rewarded.
