“The One” pizza was our dinner last night and it was phenomenal. I am a serious pizza enthusiast and it was the best I’ve ever had. The Hawaiian one was not my fav I found it very salty but I’m already planning to come back...for pizza on my next trip!More

Abbondanza translates in English into abundance and plenty. The name of this wonderful pizzeria on the Wild West coast of Vancouver Island, in the ocean village of Ucluelet, which makes its pizza following the best of Italian traditions, says it al. The smells and delicious...pizzas which come out of its ovens are brimming with inviting aromas and flavors. Both locals and travels from afar are drawn to this pizza Mecca, which stands like the town’s lighthouse, but in this case to welcome food lovers seeking great pizza, rather than the lighthouse built to warn ships to steer clear of rocks or other dangers on land. There are no dangers here; just culinary delights. One cannot go wrong, no matter one’s pizza selection. All are sublime. It is currently serving only take out, and only accepts cash. Whether you pick up a pizza to share as a couple with a bottle of wine over this romantic time, or buy a few to share with family and friends, a feeling of Abbondanza will wash over you.

We are still dreaming of the pizzas at Abbondanza and they are definitely worth the wait. As we finished our hike of the Wild Pacific Trail, we called in an order at 17:45 and were told it was a 1.5 hour wait...and it was worth...it! Their dough which turns into crispy and tasty crust is to die for and their toppings are good quality too... their topping combos are unique and delicious. They were takeout only this summer so we took our pizza back to the Black Rock Ocean Resort where we were staying and reheated it in the convection oven but we also recommend bringing your pizza to the beach to enjoy, with some beer from Ucluelet Brewing!More

My friend and I always have pizza at least one night when on holidays. We spent 3 nights in Ucluelet and decided to try the Margarita pizza the first night. It was so delicious, we had it 3 nights in a row! The authentic, chewy...crust, homemade sauce and fresh, quality mozzarella baked to perfection was the best we’d ever tasted. Great value. Order early unless you don’t mind an hour+ wait.More

We had the Fantasia, absolutely delicious. Not a traditional pizza where all toppings are cooked. The arugula and prosciutto (I believe both) were added after baking. It was perfect for two people. We were lucky, only a 45 minutes wait. Go early to place your...order. Around 5:30-6pm, waits rose to over an hour. We were there late September.More

Ordered by phone, pick up only, an hour wait as they were so busy which is good to see. Very nice pizza, not too much cheese and thin crust which is what I liked.

Loved the spicy Diavola pizza. Phone your order in, then pick up. The wait time is very long, almost 1.5 hours.

Go! By all means, GO! Superb crust to create a wonderful foundation for fresh and local veggies and herbs. So, so delicious. Lots of pizza for the price. Owner displays pride of creation and cooking. We were treated to a special app while waiting for...the main spread.More

Hi Michelle. Thanks for reaching out. Your question was directed to me but I'm not the owner of Abbondanza; just ate there. It's a very small family run operation with limited menu so not sure if they do have gluten free... More
