The Top 10 Pizzerias In Vancouver #2: Gastown’s Revolutionary “Nicli Antica”

room-from-the-back

“Revolutionary” is a strong but fitting term to describe Nicli Antica, the sexy pizzeria that got Vancouverites salivating when Scout first broke the news of its coming back in April, 2010. Up until this point, Vancouver had never enjoyed a pizzeria certified “authentic” by the watchdog Vera Pizza Napoletana association, so it holds a dear spot in our hearts as the one that ramped up this city’s pizza game by a factor of awesome.

There are plenty of pizzas to choose from (including a sweet Bianca with rosemary potatoes and gorgonzola), but our fave is the Capocollo with fior di latte, red onions, capocollo, chili oil and plenty of arugula on top. And don’t miss their classic pasta e fagioli to start – think gigandes white beans, pasta, kale, and grana padano parmesan in a hot tomato and pork broth! Bonus: perfect tiramisu.
