The GOODS from Nicli Antica Pizzeria

Vancouver, BC | “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore” croons Dean Martin, but courting couples or BFFs won’t have to worry about pizza hitting anything but their taste buds when they celebrate the feast day of San Valentino at Nicli Antica Pizzeria in romantic Gastown. For one night only, Thursday February 14th, Nicli will be offering a very special four course ‘Love at First Bite’ menu compreso created by Executive Chef Chris Picek. Menu and details after the jump…

Dinner starts with an aperitivo to enjoy with your stuzzichino (appetizer) of pork shoulder meatballs napped with a spicy tomato sauce. From there it’s on to an antipasti plate of house-smoked beef accompanied by shitake mushroom conserva, and crispy, flavour-packed baby gem lettuce. Now comes the real romantic part – sharing one of Nicli’s authentic Neapolitan Pizzas straight from the oven. This is one of the most achingly sensuous things you’ll ever eat. Neapolitan Pizza is meant to be shared – whether with a lover or a friend (who may become a lover after this experience), you’ll not be able to resist its tantalizing aroma, soft in the middle thin crust that must be torn apart (a joint effort) and flavourful toppings. Purists will opt for the traditional Margherita (pomodoro, grana padano, fior di latte, fresh basil) while more daring couples will dive into the contemporary Bianco (extra virgin olive oil, fior di latte, potato, Nicli’s bacon, scallions). One pizza, two people – let the flirtations begin. The night ends as it should, on a seductive note with a Dolci of flourless chocolate cake, caramelized banana and mascarpone. We all know the ancient Mexicans considered chocolate the ultimate aphrodisiac … and, well, mascarpone…there are no words for it.

Any evening flows a little more romantic with a little vino and GM Gino Di Domenico will be happy to help you select the perfect glass or bottle to add to the evening’s celebratory mood.

San Valentino Dinner is priced at $45 per person including Aperitivo.

When the last crumb is licked and the last drop drunk, you too may be singing “when you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet, that’s amore.”
