New summer salad!
Summer Menu Additions

We’re welcoming back our favorite summer foods!

We love our new seasonal menu additions and are thrilled to share them with you! We pride ourselves in serving fresh, local ingredients. You’re sure to see that in our Summer menu!

The Insalata Rucola e Melone is the perfect light summer salad. It features balsamic marinated melon and crispy prosciutto with gorgonzola and local City Harvest arugula. Our other new salad is the Insalata di Tonno – tuna conserva with roasted cauliflower, house smoked almonds, red onions and a caper vinaigrette. Keep an eye out for the Insalata Caprese. It’ll be making appearances on our feature boards!

While it’s hard to say goodbye to the Salsiccia e Rapini and the Patata e Radicchio, we know it means the return of cherry tomatoes and the Pizze Filetti! We’re excited to bring you a pizza with a basil pesto base, the Capricciosa Verde (cah-pri-chose-ah ver-day). If you love pesto and lots of toppings, this is the pie for you! It has house ham, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, olives, fresh mozzarella, and Parmigiano.

Of course, we’ve added a Summer cocktail too! The Cynar Collins is a delicious mix of Cynar, fresh lemon, and soda.…

We’re serving Venturi-Schulze’s Piccolo wine all Summer long. Here’s why.

photo (6) 

At Pizzeria Prima Strada, we only serve the best. If it doesn’t come straight from Italy, it has to be local. From the ingredients on our pizzas, to the wines we pour, this is our philosophy – our golden rule.

That’s why this month ‘til the end of Summer we’re featuring Venturi Schulze’s Piccolo wine.

Haven’t heard of them? They’re located just North of Victoria in Cobble Hill.

Like Prima Strada and the majority of our community partners, Venturi Schulze is a family-owned business. They’re as passionate about wine as we are pizza. For them, making wine is definitely a labour of love – the proof is in their product.

Like all of their wines, their Piccolo is handmade and organic. It’s a slightly off-dry white wine that we think pairs amazingly well with our feature salads and all lighter fare at PPS.

See for yourself! Next time you visit PPS, ask your server for a glass of Venturi Schulze’s Piccolo. You won’t find it anywhere else!  We absolutely love it. We know you will, too!

Cin cin!
