Nicli Antica Pizzeria
A sophisticated yet casual and family-friendly restaurant, Nicli Antica Pizzeria has brought a lot of attention to Gastown, the culinary epicentre of Vancouver.
The first ever Neapolitan-certified pizzeria within Vancouver, Nicli Antica Pizzeria pioneered a standard for other pizzerias to measure themselves against. In 2011 the proprietor, Bill McCaig, saw an opportunity within the neighbourhood and brought the pizzeria to life. The brick walls of the century-old Gastown building are juxtaposed with the bright and contemporary interior, creating an environment that is both friendly and welcoming.
Nicli Antica Pizzeria’s award-winning pizzas are led by Chef David Tozer, who has been with the pizzeria since its inception. His menu highlights the season’s freshest, local ingredients while honouring the culinary traditions from four generations of the Nicli family. Involved in regular charity work throughout the year, Nicli Antica Pizzeria has donated its efforts towards local charities assisting our neighbours in the Downtown Eastside and Gastown communities.
Whether planning a business lunch, family dinner, or a memorable evening out, an experience at Nicli Antica Pizzeria brings to mind the touchstones of Italian culture—family, authenticity, and delicious food and wine.
