This place is terrific! I love Thin Crust, especially when it's toasty & Full of Flavor. By far the best pizza in Vancouver.

I would have given 5* rating except the crab ravioli was too salty for my liking.

We always have a good meal at Novo and the service is friendly and professional. They are great at getting you out in time if you are trying to catch a movie next door. We really enjoyed the burrata salad. We ordered 3 pizzas and their crab ravioli special. Everything was great except my husband's pizza was a bit wet, possibly because he added about 3 extra toppings. The restaurant was accommodating re his pizza. Always seems to be a lively, busy restaurant when we go. Can be a bit loud, depending on where you are sitting.

Great pizza as always, but the reduction in the size of the golden beet salad was not appreciated. Please do not take it off your upcoming new menu. We have several friends who frequently order it. Just not the new improved smaller size if you please.

We have not been to Novo in a while but have frequently had supper here prior to that. The food and service has been consistently good. Not last night. Our server was either overwhelmed and or at some point purposefully left us sitting for our check. He had been on his way to our table within the check and machine when the women at a table in front of us waylayed him and insisted he get a them a container for their leftover pizza. He left the machine on an empty table, went to get the cintainer, gave it to them, looked over at us, ignored us and left. The machine remained on the table and several minutes the manager came and got it. After going to the bathroom, coming back and still having not received our check I went to the waiter to ask as he was leaving another table and he told me to just wait. The food was as good as ever with the exception of the spinach in my salad which had a layer of mostly fresh non-wilted spinach that covered a layer of stems (no leaves) just the stems.

A beautiful and busy Sunday night dining alfresco on the patio was no better.. Overall, service was good. but we were waiting over 5 minutes for a glass of water on a hot day from the time we were seated.. ...However, the place was very busy, and the patio we were on, was full.. Once the water arrived, everything else melted away into a great experience. the service and food after that were wonderful.. This place already sets a very high bar for quality, service and value .. The owners get a big hug for what they do.. authentic Neapolitan Pizza done right !! Grazie !

The order came out incorrect and one pizza was cold The order was corrected and quickly and the cost of a drink was removed from the bill. Disappointed that it was messed up in the first place, but happy that it was corrected.

I am a regular customer - there 2 - 3 times a month with friends or family. A great spot but would appreciate an updated menu with some new menu items. The service is usually good. This time, however, the server was rushed and not as attentive as we are used to. Definitely not worth an 18% tip which is now the lowest preset tip.

I had the halibut - the first time I have seen this item on the menu. It was excellent. The sauce was delicious and the endive was prepared in a way I have never seen before and was very good.

Beautiful dinner on the patio. The waiter’s service was polished and precise. Noise level much quieter than inside. Verdura cotto pizza baked to perfection. The beet/hazelnut/goat cheese salad is my favourite. This is truly a neighbourhood gem. Can be very busy before the cinema, reservations heartily recommended.

Service great. Caesar salad is wonderful - always very fresh. Carbonara pasta was too gummy for my taste- maybe too much egg? I prefer a regular pancetta to the pork guanciale - but others may like it - more robust.

Was there last Thursday for the 5-course Groupon deal. Portions were full size and plentiful!!! Wanted to make sure that we had room to try all the amazing courses so there were leftovers! The ingredients were fresh, impeccable quality and the dishes phenomenal. Excellent service as well!! The cicheto (or amuse bouche) was not the one listed on Groupon - the current offer was a meatball - however, the server made sure that we got something similar to the cicheto mentioned on the Groupon voucher and it was absolutely amazing!! They also didn't have the pasta choices mentioned on the Groupon available but we got to pick any of the pastas on the menu - and the server made sure that I got my carbonara with spaghetti and not rigatoni as is on their menu! A friend did order the Sicilian meatballs as an add-on and they were fantastic - big and fluffy - not dense at all and total homestyle flavour. Make sure to save room for dessert - the cannoli was two bites of pure bliss!!! Have already been recommending to friends!!!

Excellent pizzerias in Vancouver's Kitsilano

Excellent pizzerias in Vancouver's Kitsilano

The folks at Novo import their stone-ground Caputo flour directly from Italy and then age the dough for 48 hours to ensure a complex flavour and texture. All their crusts are shaped by hand and topped with fresh ingredients, including their own homemade tomato sauce. This attention to detail combined with a casual fine-dining atmosphere makes this one of the best pizza experiences in the neighbourhood.

Great bars for a first date in Vancouver

Great bars for a first date in Vancouver

Italy is known for romance, good wine and delicious food. The real thing might be a little far for a first date, but you can still enjoy an European-inspired dining experience at NOVO on Burrard. The gourmet pizzas here are cooked in an authentic wood-burning stove and topped with fresh, high-quality regional ingredients. Order a thin-crust pie to share accompanied by a bottle of vino from their extensive wine list and your date will be off to a good start. Even you don’t find love, you'll definitely find a great pizza!
