Verace pizza - what's the scoop?

Adjacent to a host of new cheap-eats pizza places in Crosstown & the pricier options in Gastown...
wonder how this place is going to position itself & whether they got the hint that many of us don't want to pay $20 for a margherita pizza, no matter its pedigree...

  1. Sounds like the next bandwagon for Vancouver restos to jump on (napolitana pizza), along with $10 meat/breads, southern BBQs and the ramen revolution.

      Yeah, Vancouver is a little late to the Neapolitan pizza party....but it is about time.

    2. Is that what Nicli charges for their Margherita? I can't think of anyone else (not Bibbo) who charges that much. Most places start the Marg at $12. and build from there.

        Eatruistic, I was embellishing somewhat- although sometimes the difference between a $12 margherita and its $20 cousin is fifty cents' worth of toppings.

          Maybe there was $7.50 of amore in Verace's bigga pizza pie, you knows, eh ? [wink]

      2. Yes, 2011 is shaping up to be the year pizza broke in YVR. Hopefully, Verace will turn out to be a good place to have a glass of wine and a bite after work.

        I don't mind paying for things that are extraordinary. I am happy that Nicli is there but it wasn't the pizza revelation I was hoping for (and their wines by the glass are criminally marked up).

        1. Well it is a nearby upscale dining alternative to all the cheap pizza places, plus great if you want a dessert that is much fresher than some other places which seemingly serves desserts from a Costco wholesale store.
