Looking Back To Opening Night, Five Years Ago At ‘Pizzeria Farina’ On Main Street

6054397207_baef9c3250_b

by Andrew Morrison | Five years ago last night my wife and I took our kids to the opening of Pizzeria Farina, the newest arrival to the edge of our neighbourhood. We were the restaurant’s very first customers, curious “to place it in the burgeoning pantheon of Vancouver pizzerias” (it ranks among the best in town). As you can see from the photos I took that night, very little has changed since then save for the size of our boys. The prices have gone up a buck or two and they now serve beer (they didn’t on opening night), but overall they’re doing almost exactly the same menu, and regularly running out of dough before they do customers. Here’s to another five years!
