DINER | The Top 10 Pizzerias In Vancouver #6: “Pizzeria Farina” On Chinatown’s Edge

December 1, 2013 

6189595683_069e054b2e_b

Farina is the closest pizzeria to Scout’s office, so we know it intimately. The room is adorably designed, one of the first ever independent jobs by Craig Stanghetta, who has since done up the looks of several popular establishments around town (eg. Pidgin, Homer St. Cafe, Revolver, Ask For Luigi, etc).

But back to the pizza! The crust is fantastic. Not only does it travel well and maintain core temperature longer than VPN-certified pizzas (at least the few blocks back to our office), it also maintains an ideal thinness. It’s very close to Neapolitan authenticity, even achieving the gently blistered char on the outer edges with their gas-fired oven. Our favourite pizzas here are the quattro formaggi with mozzarella, parmesan, provolone, and ricotta (flecked with basil, natch) and the finocchiona with fennel sausage, provolone, parmesan and peppers. Update: an earlier edit said that PF didn’t have a liquor license. That is, of course, incorrect. Our bad.

Seen In Vancouver #390: Mesmerizing Food Porn From “Pizzeria Farina” On Main Street

August 8, 2012 

A quiet, contemplative bit of exasperating food porn from Pizzeria Farina on Main via local filmmaker Corbie Fieldwalker (the agrarian cousin of Luke Skywalker). The film is short, but just long enough to make you start weeping with holy need. The tiny pizzeria – just a few blocks from our office – opens at 5pm and closes when they run out of dough (which they do with ease pretty much every night). There isn’t a dud among their seven, heavenly-crusted pies, but if we were to pick just two to scarf for the rest of our lives they’d be the dreamily creamy Quattro Formaggi (mozzarella, parmesan, provolone, ricotta) and the feisty Finocchiona (fennel sausage, peppers, provolone). Mmm. We’ll see you in line.

ON A MISSION: On Hunting For The Very Best (Authentic) Neapolitan Pizzeria In Town

by Claire Lassam | When Brandon Petit and Molly Wizenberg were playing with recipes before opening Delancey’s (their Seattle pizza restaurant), they tried tricking their home oven into getting hotter by putting cold wet rags on its thermometer. The pair did eventually get the temperature close to 900F, where the “Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana” says it needs to be for a proper Neapolitan pizza to blossom. The association also says that in order to be a true pizza it also has to be 35cm in width, cooked in a domed oven, be no more then 1/3 cm thick in the centre, and much more besides.

What I’m saying here, is that it’s virtually impossible to make “true” Neapolitan pizza at home. And if you try the wet rag trick, I am not to be blamed for whatever the effort incurs. It sounds like a terrible idea, no matter the dedication t0 authenticity. But good pizza does takes dedication. It takes skill, and if it goes right, it rewards magically.

My mission for the perfect, authentic slice in Vancouver needed parameters. I wasn’t going to slice shops, even though I love the odd slice. They sit under heat lamps and don’t hold up nicely all alone. That meant I needed to get a full pizza every time. I also only went to five places that aimed for authentic, thin crust pizza, and to make it the most fair I only went for the Margherita – the classic tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil pie (to match the colours of the Italian flag).

I started at Lombardo’s on The Drive, in the heart of what is supposed to be our Little Italy. They’d been around since 1986, I thought, and so must have learned a thing or two. Sadly, the dough was nearly flavourless, and it was way too chewy. The sauce was heavy, and the crust was to0 thick. The mission didn’t start out with a bang… Read more

DINER: Pourhouse Crew & Chef J.C. Poirier Open “Pizzeria Farina” At Main And Prior

August 17, 2011 

Rarely do restaurants open on time, but Pizzeria Farina, as promised, opened its doors tonight at 915 Main Street (just off Prior next to The Cobalt). Since it’s just around the corner from our house we made a quick first pass to pick up some pies, which we made short work of in the park. Prices were very reasonable, and I don’t think we waited more than 15 minutes. It was cool seeing them immediately busy, a testament, no doubt, to the mean social media game they play. It’s way too soon to pass full judgment (first night and all), but I think their experimentation with crust paid off. I’ll be going a few more times before I give it a proper write up, either here or in the paper. Suffice it to say that I look forward to comparing it to others (eg. Campagnolo across the street) and attempting to place it in the burgeoning pantheon of Vancouver pizzerias. But there’s plenty of time for that. In any event, it sure is nice having another restaurant open in the hood. Keep ‘em coming!
