PPS Bridge is moving! Cobble Hill here we come!
PPS Bridge is moving to the Cowichan Valley!

We’re moving to the Cowichan Valley and we’re really excited! PPS Cobble Hill will open this Spring!

It will be business as usual at PPS Bridge until Saturday, February 4. We hope you’ll join us for a last celebration or two.

PPS Bridge opened February 15, 2010. We hosted the successful Long Table Dining Series, Vino e Spuntino and Parla Italiano. Most importantly, we were honored to celebrate many weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement and staff parties with family and friends.

To our many Bridge Street guests, especially our loyal lunch crowd, grazie mille! It’s been a pleasure to serve you. We’ve enjoyed being part of the neighborhood and seen great changes with the addition of breweries, coffee roasteries and more. We’ll continue to be a part of the area with PPS Production and our Support Office tucked into a smaller space at 2960 Bridge Street.

We’re excited to bring Prima Strada up island! We look forward to embracing another neighbourhood and expanding outside of Victoria. While a new location, rest assured you’ll see both new and familiar faces as part of the PPS team in Cobble Hill. Construction is underway at our new location in…

PPS celebrates Victoria's Blue Bridge
The Blue Bridge & Squid tee from PPS!

An old favorite returns, the Blue Bridge & Squid!

We have a lot of fun with the annual PPS t-shirt – Wolf Howling at a Full Moon Pizza, the ever appropriate and popular I’M SORRY FOR WHAT I SAID WHEN I WAS HUNGRY and POWERED BY PIZZA are just a few in recent years. This year we returned to an old favorite, the Blue Bridge & Squid.

Over the years, I’ve taken a bit of heat for this shirt – it’s gray with ink to match Victoria’s favorite bridge. It’s not Prima Strada’s branding colors – the logo is blue too! If you live in Victoria or have just visited, you know the Blue Bridge. As it will soon only be a memory, we figured what better way to keep it alive in our hearts and minds than to place it again front and center on a t-shirt!

You can pick up this rendition or another PPS t-shirt in your favorite pizzeria or from the PPS Shop (and we’ll cover the postage).

Buon Anniversario PPS Bridge Street!

Pizzeria Prima Strada 5th Anniversary

Well, it’s official! As of February 15th, both of our restaurants have surpassed the 5-year mark in Victoria. That’s right, Pizzeria Prima Strada Bridge Street – our second location in Victoria – is officially 5-years-old and we couldn’t be more thrilled or honoured.

We’d like to extend our  sincerest (and greatest) thanks to all of our amazing customers and staff who’ve supported us in making PPS what it is today.

Looking forward to the next 5 years – we know they’ll be just as fantastic!

And the Official Grand Champion of PPS’ 2014 Ugly Xmas Sweater Competition Is…

Give it up for Kimber Parmar – whose friendly face you may recognize from our Bridge Street location – for winning PPS’ 2014 ugly Xmas sweater contest.

You may recall our Xmas-themed staff party… (No? That’s ok. We posted pics here).

…Staff were asked to come dressed in their ugliest Xmas sweaters. As you can see below, Kimber’s attire was easily the most impressive.


It takes time to create an award as special as the sweater she created for her big win at the staff party.



She thought we forgot, but we didn’t! While Kimber scored a custom mug, the team showed their appreciation with Kimber t-shirts!

Kimber, we appreciate you! Thanks for your enthusiasm and spirit!
