About Pizzeria Farina


Doing one thing really well … that’s what Pizzeria Farina is all about. Jean-Christope (JC) Poirier and the Pourhouse team have created a simple, community-focused, Northern Italian-inspired pizzeria. The menu is simple, consisting only of pizza and beverages, and the atmosphere is stylish, casual and comfortable. There are seven pizzas to choose from; some simple and classic for the pizza purist, others more creative for the non-traditionalist.

“Nella vita – chi non risica – non rosica.” – In life: who risks nothing – gains nothing.

Pizzeria Farina has a classic serve-yourself concept that is meant to inspire a sense of community. “Everyone looks after themselves … from ordering at the counter, to pouring their own water to bussing their own plates.” Customers can enjoy their pizza in-house with a glass of wine or beer (as soon as the liquor license comes through), an Italian soda, or filtered sparkling or still water. Pizza can also be taken out and enjoyed at home. The design is simple and sleek with high-top community tables and window bar seating. Table tops and grocery shelves are all made from reclaimed wood and add colour to the clean white and red environment.

The interior design by Craig Stanghetta is simple and sleek with high-top community tables and window bar seating. Table tops and grocery shelves are all made from reclaimed wood and add colour to the clean white and red environment. The graphic design and branding effort of Glasfurd & Walker is executed with a simplistic and quality approach, represented visually through several meaningful Italian proverbs prominently displayed. Several historic details are also present throughout the space – from the menu board made from a 1950’s butcher paper cutter to the 1980’s Pinarello Pista Bicycle on the wall – a Treviso original. All this is juxtaposed by a modern written-word art installation from local artist Ricky Alvarez, adding some drama to the otherwise simple interior. Pizzeria Farina also sells artisan Italian products: house-made raw tomato sauce, house-made Chili-Infused and Oregano-Infused Olive Oil and anchovies, packed in either salt or oil.

“L’occhio del padrone ingrassa il cavallo.” – “Nobody takes care of one’s business as does its owner.”
