desperately searching for cheap delivery to Plateau

agate Feb 5, 2010 02:28 PM

We like to order in once a week or so, nothing special, pizza would be ideal but anything in that kind of price range would be fine. We used to live in the delivery range of Bardeco, which is not great pizza by any stretch but it did the job just fine. We've just moved to the Plateau and ordered Amelio's last night and it was just awful. The style of pizza was not the problem, it was that the flavors were off.

Where do you order from when you want delivery in the Plateau? Help!

    Sandhu is the best delivery pizza in the plateau.

      SH--thanks! this looks like it fits the bill perfectly. The prices look great and we can mix it up from time to time with subs and poutine and salads. Nice! Can't wait to try it. Thanks!

            Sandhu has been around for as long as I can remember and they've always made great pizza. Their menu looks the same as a lot of other pizza places except for a couple of items like the Cachemire pizza. I can't really recommend anything other than their pizza, though. I find their pasta dishes to be pretty ordinary.

                Casa Nova is still around, although they have moved to Bélanger East of Christophe-Colomb. I do remember seeing their menu and finding it looked a lot like the menu at Sandhu. I don't know which came first, though.

            Sandhu's "melanzane forte" with thin slices of eggplant, ricotta, garlic and red peppers is delicious. That, the pesto chèvre and the légumes grillés are much nicer than the cliché vegetarian pizza - I hate broccoli on pizza...

            They've been around for decades. Casa Nova is also run by South Asian people, but I don't know if they are relatives or associates of Sandhu, which has been around for decades.

            Plateaumaman, no Domino's for me. I'd have to be quite literally starving (as in post quake Haitian people) to eat anything from them.

              For everyone who's recommended Sandhu, how the rest of their offering? Anything else is good, or something not worth it.

                Much of Amelio's pizza is ordinary, but their pizza bianca is definitely worth trying, if you've never had it...

                  I hate to admit it but for cheap pizza delivery, we usually get two medium pizzas from Domino's on Rachel. Very child-friendly which suits us here. I used to order the vegetarian pizza from Amelio's which is more expensive and has heaps of cheese. Otherwise we make pizzas from scratch with pita bread or using Jim Lahey's no-knead pizza dough recipe. You can get grocery delivery from IGA for that!

                    Your best bet is to take out from the closest pizza place to where you live. Generally pizza is great when it's fresh, even from Pizza Pizza or that sort of place.

                      van horne pizza makes an excellent pie and an even better chicken pita....i met even go one further and claim that their veggie pita is even better with a very tasty hunk of feta cheese

                        Terasse Lafayette (514.288.3915, No online menu however) delivers to the plateau, I have a friend who lives there and I've converted him to it for delivery. Their greek food is pretty good, and I like their pizza. But then I also like Amelio's pizza, so we may disagree there.
