Reviewed May 25, 2018

People that had been here all advised that the menu was very limited. It is! It consists of several pizzas and a couple of pasta dishes and salads and a couple of appetizers.
We opted for a pizza and a salad. The service was ok but the server seemed unfamiliar with the food items. The salad was not inspiring but it was OK. The pizza was italian style with a thin crust, which is what we wanted. What we were not prepared for was the sogginess of it. The first piece I attempted to pick up was so limp that all of the toppings slid off onto the plate. Taste was OK but you had to eat it with a fork.
One thing that bothered my wife and I was the wine list. It was quite expensive. Not too many pizza places have a wine list that starts at $8 then immediately goes to 9 and 10 dollars. Beer was reasonably priced.
This is a small town good quality restaurant but the menu is just too limited and wine wine prices are just too high for us.
When we went there, we'd heard that it was supposed to be high quality Italian food in a nice setting. Maybe we hit it on a bad night but that was not the case. It will be a while before we go back.

We luckily were seated on the cool little patio on this busy Thursday evening. The service was very good, as was the wine selection. The pasta was perfect. Overall we had a fantastic experience.

We visited this restaurant knowing that this is chef Terry Pichor's newest venture. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday night. All the tables were full, so instead of waiting we chose a table at the bar and enjoyed watching bartender Jon create many interesting drinks during the evening. We started with the olive tapenade - 3 delicious triangles of bruschetta with a flavorful topping - we just wish there were 4 pieces, so we didn't have to fight over the last one! I had the slow roasted chicken pizza and hubby had the linguini vongole. I loved the crust on the pizza - so thin and crisp! The pasta was very good too - and a generous serving. We each had a dessert - tiramisu (very thick and rich) and sorbets - very delicious! A fun dinner out at a busy restaurant. I'd love to see a few more choices on the menu.... we will be back!

We have been there twice now, and while the food is excellent, the menu is very limited, and we think giving it some time will help. They have already added to the choices since their initial opening, so I believe they will continue to do more. The pizza is amazing, and the pasta is delicious. The big miss for our party is the lack of meat dishes offered - there are no steak, chicken or rib dishes on the menu at this time.I don't think anyone expected this place to be as busy as it has been, so the staff are struggling to learn on their feet, and the owners are trying to figure it out as they go. Everyone has been smiling, helpful and friendly, and for that reason, i will be happy to go back and see how it goes. Supporting local is important to me.

We finally had a chance to check out this new local restaurant, was busy on a Thursday night. Very nice Reno’s inside and super friendly staff!
The menu is limited and way too pricey for Ladner for what you get, which is why we won’t be back.
We ordered the Caesar salad, which was a bit bland, and the Brooklyn pizza. The pizza was good, but for the amount of meat that they advertise on the menu that the pizza was supposed to have...it was lacking.
We love supporting local businesses, so we’re hoping that they’ll add to the menu and lower their prices so that families can afford to go for a nice dinner there.
