Pizza’s were amazing! Nice thin crust done in a pizza oven. Very busy place so try to go early. Staff were all friendly and the pizzas came out in a reasonable time. The only reason it does not get a 5/5 is that their beer...selection is limited. Would definitely go back for the pizza.More

Attracted by wood-fired oven but pizzas very soggy in the middle and base uncooked. Very mean topping on fungi pizza - bit more cheese wouldn't have gone amiss. Worst meal we've had during our travels in Canada. Had better pizzas from supermarket.

We’ve wintered in Victoria the past five years. We try and get to Prima Strata one evening a week. It’s great food, great atmosphere and great staff. We’ll miss the pizza and moreover the staff til we return again. Thanks so much.

I stopped to get a pizza to go. Service was excellent and very friendly. Paid what I thought was a lot for a "medium" pepperoni pizza. When I got it home (4 blocks away) it was only half cooked, very little toppings and cold. Once...I rebaked it, I could only eat 2 slices. It tasted horrible. I have never in my life thrown pizza away prior to this. As I said, service was outstanding but price was too high and product was inedible.More

We live nearby and haven’t darkened the door of this restaurant in a while. The fun of dining out is slowly creeping back into our society. Thank goodness. On this night the service was excellent, the drinks were great and pizza was okay. We were...thrilled to be out so the less than perfect pizza was okay with us. Just a little under cooked. Otherwise just fine.More

Keen pizza enthusiast visiting Victoria from a vacation in Vancouver. Best flavour pizza of all so far. Loved the sausage and pepperoni - so full of flavor! Great wood-fired crusts. Only thing some might critique was the floppy centre dough that was perhaps a little...undercooked, but absolutely delicious!More

Used to be the best pizza in town, but the quality has deteriorated and the prices gone up. The last couple of pies I've had there, I could see they're using less ingredients, with the width of the crust much larger. Meanwhile, instead of a...$14 Margherita it was more like $18. So with tip, it's over $20 just to take away a personal margherita pizza. Bad value.More

Great pizza, good service … take out was a bit cold. Next time we will order at restaurant and wait for pizza to cook. Think it sat on top of oven for too long … was cold when we got back to hotel.

Visiting grandparents want to do right, and with the help of Pizzaria Prima Strada, we brought special take-out to kids and grandkids. With five adult palates there were so many options to mix and match. And the Bambini worked for our grandson. Ordering on-line was...user-friendly. Our order was packed when we arrived and still hot after our rush-hour travels. Vegetarian flavors, sauces and toppings were all to everyone's liking. We will be back!More

As good a pizza I’ve had anywhere in the world. Melt in your mouth on a great dough. A fun atmosphere and nice waiters. Highly recommended and not over priced.

Had a very nice mushroom pizza, but for the size, a bit pricey. But, given the current circumstances for all eateries trying to stay alive, it is understandable. Good quality pizza and the crust was excellent. Great location too, and very pleasant staff. Efficient take-out...service.More

We were delighted to be able to visit Vancouver Island again after the pandemic curtailed our travels! One of our first thoughts was to return to an old favourite, Pizzeria Prima Strada! They did not disappoint! Delicious wood-fired fresh thin crust and a delightful array...of possibilities for creative and scrumptious toppings. We had one Funghi and one Burrata (the day's special) and both were amazing! We sat at one of the outdoor tables and the service was excellent, too. We felt safe, valued as customers and certainly well-fed!More

We were looking forward to the opportunity to 'dine in' again and went with friends who have just bought a condo in the neighbourhood for dinner. The food, service and ambiance were excellent as always.

I like this place, generally, but have gone twice in last couple of weeks and just ok. Service - ok. Food - undercooked (calzone was served cold!) Beer - cold and delicious. Meatballs - not like they used to be. Not what it used to...be but nice to have an option in the neighborhood.More

Hi there, it sounds like we didn't measure up to our normal standards during your most recent visits. Did you order takeout or dine in at the pizzeria? Our pizzas and calzones are best when served directly from the oven, and we recommend finishing them...More

We used to be regulars at this wood fired oven neighborhood pizzeria. Went there no less than twice a month. That was pre-Covid. Went there yesterday for the first time since. Sat at one of two tiny tables outside. All the staff we knew are...gone. Everyone is new. No worries. Ordered our favorite salad. A mix of greens with mounds of Parmesan and Gorgonzola cheese. Now it’s only romaine lettuce, some Parmesan. Nothing else. What happened to the mix of greens. Waitress: Covid. My salad has no Gorgonzola. Waitress: Covid. The previously juicy meatballs were dry and tasteless. Everyone took a bite and left the rest. Asked the waitress, “what happened?”. She shrugs her shoulders and says “Covid”. The pizzas which used to be light and airy have an oily taste and consistently of cardboard. Again, asked thdd red waitress. Same answer, “Covid”. In short, Covid has become their excuse for doing a lousy job on everything. Never going back again. If they ask why, I now know the right answer. It’s Covid. All this enjoyment for $60 per person with two glasses of wine each. No thanks.More
