Explore Cowichan
Road Trip To Cowichan

We love road trips, be it by car or bike, and we love to explore Cowichan! Our list of really good things to see, do and eat in Cowichan is a long one.   From favourite hiking spots (with instagrammable moments) to sipping a glass of wine at one of the many vineyards, there’s something for everyone.

Because it’s how we feel about road trip stops, it’s important to have a little something for everyone.

At Prima Strada in Cobble Hill, whether you need to stretch your legs, bribe with gelato, grab a pizza to-go or do your part and sample some of Cowichan’s finest local craft beer/wine/cider on a sunny patio, we’ve got you covered.

Pizza…it’s universally accepted by everyone in your car, guaranteed. Salad…for the people that are not bold enough to admit they love pizza. Local craft beer, cider and wine…no description needed. Gelato…for kids of all ages. Parking…we have lots! “I have to go PEE”… there’s someone in every car. You know who you are.

On your adventure up or down the island this summer, we hope you’ll include Prima Strada Cobble Hill on your list.

Cobblestone Carne pizza
Support the Cobblestone Pub – Eat Well Do Good

Bring your family, friends and neighbours – it takes a community!  Whether you’re heading up or down the island to take part in Canada Day activities, stop in for a pizza (dine in or take out!)!  PPS Cobble Hill is located RIGHT off the hwy.  Every little bit counts.  The donations from this event will help support the Cobblestone Staff while the pub remains closed undergoing construction.

Purchase the Cobblestone Carne Pizza at PPS Cobble Hill this Canada Day long weekend –  June 30, July 1 and 2 and PPS will donate $2 per pizza to the Cobblestone Pub.

On June 1st 2018, the Cobblestone Pub suffered major fire damage resulting in the community hub closing it’s doors for the summer. The pub has been operating since 1983 and we know you’ll agree – it’s an institution in the Cowichan Valley.

The Cobblestone Carne: Tomato, fresh mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, house ham, garlic, oregano – $21

No meat, no problem. We thought you might ask so we’ve prepared an excellent veggie option for $21.  Capricciosa Verde Supremo: basil pesto, peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, olives, fresh mozzarella.

PPS’ Eat Well Do Good campaigns benefit the great community organizations in the neighborhoods we live and work in. With the help of…

Cobble Hill Celebrates 1st Birthday
Oh What Fun, Look Who’s One!

Prima Strada Cobble Hill Celebrates a Birthday with New Sparkling Wine

Two food lovers with a passion for pizza were inspired to create Pizzeria Prima Strada. Cristen and Geoffrey recognized the need for a neighborhood pizzeria in the Cowichan Valley, a place you could gather with family and friends for a delicious meal. Now, one year later, Cowichan Valley’s newest wood-fired pizzeria is celebrating its first anniversary!

Just a year ago, with the opening of Cobble Hill,  Prima Strada and Averill Creek launched the highly successful Vino della Casa.  The new house wine, Prima Prevost and Prima Grigio are 100% estate grown; hand crafted in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island by Averill Creek Vineyard.

“It’s something we’re incredibly proud of,” say Cristen DeCarolis. “and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our first anniversary in Cobble Hill than with the addition of bubbles – Prima Frizzante has joined the family!”

On your next trip through or to the Cowichan Valley, stop at PPS Cobble Hill (located right off the hwy on Cow Bay Rd- open daily from 11:30am – 9:00pm) for wood-fired pizza, house made gelato, local craft beer and don’t forget to raise a glass…
