A SHORE THING: PIZZERIA FARINA MARKS 8th ANNIVERSARY BY ANNOUNCING NEW NORTH VAN OUTPOST, $8 SPECIALS AT ORIGINAL MAIN STREET LOCATION
Original Location Celebrates Milestone with $8 Pies on August 18, Adds New, Full-Service ‘Farina Pizza a Legna’ Location in North Van’s Lower Lonsdale District Later This Month
Northern Italian-inspired institution Pizzeria Farina celebrates its eighth anniversary this August by featuring $8 pizza specials at its original location (915 Main Street) on Sunday, August 18 before launching a new Farina Pizza a Legna outpost in North Vancouver at 119 2nd Street East later in the month.
Located in the heart of North Van’s burgeoning Lower Lonsdale district in the former site of Il Castello Pizzeria, Farina Pizza a Legna (Italian for ‘wood-fired pizza’) will offer a full-service pizzeria with seating for 50 in a bright and spacious dining room and another eight on an outdoor patio.
Long beloved for its take on authentic, Napoletana-style pizza, a Legna will migrate many of the Main Street favourites to the new location while also offering an expanded menu of antipasti, insalate, pastas and desserts for dine-in and take-out. At the bar, a Legna will feature local craft beer and Prosecco on tap, an all-Italian wine list, selection of amaro and grappa, and house-made bottled cocktails.
Farina Pizza a Legna is a partnership between the Giannakos Family of Revolver Coffee and the Kitchen Table Restaurants hospitality group that also owns and operates the original Pizzeria Farina, cocktail-and-comfort-food hotspot Pourhouse, caffé-by-day, ristorante-by-night Di Beppe, and casual Italian eatery Ask For Luigi.
The a Legna team will be led by a trio of industry veterans and Kitchen Table all-stars, with Alessandro Vianello (Pourhouse) and Jeffrey Tang of the original Pizzeria Farina location leading the back of house as Executive Chef and Chef de Cuisine, respectively, while Angela Dean (Ask For Luigi) will oversee front-of-house operations as General Manager.
8TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
In honour of its 8th anniversary on Sunday, August 18, Pizzeria Farina at 915 Main Street will be featuring its popular Napoletana-style Marinara, Margherita, Funghi, Quattro Formaggi, Calabrese and Finocchiona varieties of pies for $8 (dine-in only) starting at 5 p.m. and ending when the dough runs out, with a limit of one pizza per customer.
