Pasta! We’re really excited to say we’ve been noodling all about it for the past few months. In fact, we’ve been cooking up a top-secret pasta revolution behind the scenes (really, in our Production Kitchen) and the time has finally come to unveil our mouthwatering creations!

Now, in addition to serving up your favourite pizza, we’re serving up a Feature Pasta too! Yes, pasta in the pizzerias – simple and delicious, just like our pizzas. Stop by for a bowl or two. Eat in or take home. We have a little something for everyone: the salt, the crunch, meat and no meat, a touch of heat! All are tasty – we couldn’t pick a favourite!

Every week, we’ll offer three dishes: a Feature Pasta (different at each pizzeria) along with two classic (and kid friendly) sauces: tomatoes and parmesan and olive oil and parmesan! Yep, that’s three different pasta dishes available every week.

*Rigatoni con pancetta, piselli e gorgonzola – pancetta, parmigiano, peas, gorgonzola, shallots, panna, salt and pepper. *can be made w/o meat

Spaghetti con aglio e olio – garlic, parmigiano, chili flakes, bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice

Priam Strada celebrated 14 years in 2022!
2022 Prima Strada Recap

It’s a 2022 Prima Strada Recap! It’s hard to create a quick video recap of the year. How to pick the moments when there were many?

To name just a few? The Meatball Panino made it back onto the menu, Jack showed off his custom apron featuring a melting pizza, Francisco customized a frozen pizza at home by adding his favourite ham, the crew gathered at Cook Street to celebrate 14 years in operation and more. It’s a challenging list to write, especially when you know there are so many more moments that were celebrated by the pizzeria family – our team, guests and community.

More than 16 years ago, Geoffrey and I began searching in earnest for the style of pizza we ate on the regular when we lived in California. We didn’t think our search would lead us to opening Neapolitan pizzerias with a production kitchen making pepperoni, gelato and more. We’re humbled by the opportunity to share Neapolitan pizza and more with the Vancouver Island community. We’re anticipating another exciting and memorable year!
