A word from Novo Pizzeria & Wine Bar
What do you get when you take two guys who grew up in East Vancouver from humble backgrounds, have a love of Italian food and a desire to bring a little something different to the Vancouver food scene? Let's call it a recipe for success.
To do something right takes time. Years of huge Sunday meals with their families, Pizza Making courses in New York City run by master baker, Peter Reinhardt and relentless planning to create NOVO Pizzeria & wine bar.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great great pizza....great service......desserts are to die for! Always enjoy it all when I go there! "

  • "This is my wife's and my favourite restaurant in town. Best margarita pizza in Vancouver - at least since our trip from Sorrento! Great staff. Great wine. Great atmosphere. We are always recommending it to friends We try no to come TOO often because it's special. But whenever we do it's always something to look forward to."

  • "The pizzas at Novo are very good. Traditional Italian style pizzas that have a great mix of flavours. Wouldn't have minded a few more menu options for the more carnivorous but what we had was excellent. The salads and appetizers were also a big hit with our group. The service was excellent, a mix of old world respect with a good sense of humour to keep things light, but without imposing."

  • "Perfect for a meal out before the movies (Firth Avenue is right next door). Best to make a restervation."

  • "Having walked by here many times, I am surprised that I haven't tried this place before. The food is exceptional and comes surprisingly fast. Customer service is friendly despite it being a very busy place. Will definitely come back."

  • "Novo delivers their menu items to perfection. This restaurant repeatedly delivers a high quality of pizza, salads and Italian foods. The meatballs are superior as was the antipasto platter. Will be ongoing patrons."

  • "Very good - highly recommended except for the loud-ish techno music that was completely inappropriate for the setting. Otherwise, a great Italian restaurant experience - great food with attentive service from a number of servers. Many nice little touches. Except for the very odd choice of music for a Valentine's day evening."

  • "We made early reservations because it was Valentines Day and we figured they'd be busy. It was still fairly quiet when we arrived at 5:30, but it quickly became clear that they were anticipating a crowd and wanted us out of the way. Service was head-spinning fast--food and drink arrived within 2 minutes of ordering. I'm not even sure how they got the food ready so quickly! Sadly, our server tended not to check in on us during the meal, so I was unable to turn in the drastically over salted calimari. By the time someone came to clear the plates, the evidence had been eliminated by my sodium addicted spouse. We'll go back again, as I'm sure this eve was an anomaly, but this visit was not up to their usual standard."

  • "Very average. The pizza was ok. Everything was just kind of plain, from the ambiance to the food and service. Menu was expensive for the quality of food. Much better options all over Vancouver. Skip it."

  • "Staff very friendly. Food delicious. Not elegant white linen service, but certainly very good neighborhood restaurant. Very busy at times as it gets pre-cinema crowd! Book on Open Table, or head to the Issa place west of Burrard on the north side of 4th."

  • "It's hard for me to hate a fresh gourmet pizza but this one just did not cut it. The crust was way too thin and on some pizzas got soggy. You could not pick up your pizza by hand and eat it because the slice would droop down and all the toppings would slide off. Eating with a fork and knife was just as difficult because the crust was paper thin and again, all the toppings slid off. We ordered 4 different types of pizza and there was nothing I would go back for. Too bad, I love gourmet pizza and was hoping to have a great place to visit close to home. We had the diavolo, the potato pizza, the Margherita from the specials sheet, and the salami with olives."

  • "The food here is excellent. They always have fabulous specials and for starters would recommend the antipasta platter . it has their home made grilled bread with tasty treats. The pizzas are the best in town and the service always friendly and professional . Our go to place after a movie next door."

  • "Dropped in for a light lunch. Everything was absolutely wonderful. It was a little bit pricey for a quick lunch but we were very happy to pay it because the food was excellent. We look forward to returning for dinner."

  • "I recently had another great meal with friends at Novo - excellent pizza for me and pasta for others, with great salads to start and killer desserts afterwards! Nice selection of Italian and other wines to match the food."

  • "Food, atmosphere and friendly service is always great at Novo! My wife and I like going to grab a quick meal before a movie! Normally the service is great but this one time I have a suspicion our Pizza order was misplaced as it took much much longer to receive our main meal and was only served after a request. Once the request was made it was served in a reasonable amount of time. We love the staff, the food and the atmosphere of Nova."

  • "My wife and I showed up extremely early for our reservation New Years Eve when our movie was sold out. The staff accommodated us and sat us at the bar. Bartender Bryan was very knowledgeable and friendly and we started with a nice Chianti and a fabulous antipasto plate accompanied by fire roasted bread from the pizza oven, so good for spreading the roasted peppers, hot olives and garlic. When a table became available we were moved, but close to the bar, and Bryan continued to serve us. We shared a fresh crisp Caesar salad and a tasty pasta. The attention we received from Bryan and the rest of the staff was just right, not intrusive but well delivered. I had not previously thought of Novo as a destination eatery, but I do now. Well Done!"

  • "Great little spot to eat in Vancouver. Wine choices are good. Pizzas are delicious. Salads are delightful. Only negative is the coffee. Often tastes burnt or charred. They need to upgrade their coffee."

  • "Pizza just like in Rome! Good wine list- nice place."

  • "Every neighbourhood should have a little place like this. Great food, casual atmosphere, lots of options, nice selection of wine and beer. The staff is top notch. The service is friendly and fast. This is a great stop to make before or after a movie at the Fifth Avenue Cinema as it is right next door. I live on the North Shore and make the trek often just to combine the two! Highly recommended!"

  • "I absolutely loved the food. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it was the best restaurant food I have eaten in a long, long time. The quality of food, service, and atmosphere completely exceeds expectations when you consider the affordable price-point. I have paid a lot more for much less satisfactory meals. Good, simple, well-balanced dishes really allow the ingredients to shine through, and I'll be dreaming of my meal for a while to come... Looking forward to next time."

  • "We've been to Novo twice as a group of 6 for a pre-movie dinner. the food has been excellent both times. All six of us ordered pizza on both visits, and I don't think our water glasses were ever empty as the waitress was very attentive. The pizzas are thin crust, and a good size for a one-person dinner. We did have a young college student in our group who could've easily eaten two pizzas."

  • "Grab a bite before or after a film next door at the Fifth Avenue Cinema or come with friends and family for a generous salad and tasty pizza and accommodating wait staff. Novo can be noisy when full but our server turned the music down a couple of notches which really helped. In warm weather there's seating on the patio."

  • "Perfect spot for a sharing a quick reasonably priced bite before hitting the movie theatre. Great way to avoid downtown on a Saturday night."

  • "I booked Novo's for a party of 12, so they had placed our tables in this little nook just behind the bar. I liked it because it was private enough that it was just our group, but we weren't totally isolated from the rest of the restaurant. The service was satisfactory, but it did take over an hour to get our orders and our food. My party didn't seem to mind as we were all catching up anyway. When our food came, everyone was satisfied with what they ordered. We all ordered a kind of pizza. I ordered a margherita. It was great and tasted authentic enough to me. I had also told them that it was my fiance's birthday so they did come out with a slice of tiramisu cake on the house for him which I appreciated very much."

  • "Overall, food was great.. price point was a little on the higher side for the neighbourhood."
