About Nicli Antica Pizzeria
Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN) was created to protect and to professionalize the Pizza Makers in Italy and abroad that will undertake to make the Vera Pizza Napoletana (true Neapolitan pizza), according to tradition, thus ensuring the quality of the production process and products used.
Nicli Antica Pizzeria is proud to be the first ever VPN Pizzeria in Vancouver and strives to keep Neapolitan traditions alive after 6 years in Gastown while maintaining the highest quality ingredients, service, experience and best tasting Pizza in Vancouver.
Nicli Antica Pizzeria is the first VPN certified Neapolitan pizzeria in Vancouver. Located in the culinary epicentre of Vancouver, Gastown, the brick walls of the century old building are juxtaposed against the design of a bright and contemporary interior.
Nicli Antica Pizzeria honours the culinary traditions from four generations of the Nicli family. Chef David Tozer’s menu highlights the season’s freshest, local ingredients alongside a robust beverage program. An experience at Nicli Antica Pizzeria will bring to mind the touchstones of Italian culture — family, authenticity, and incredible food and wine.
We will definitely visit again as the food was great. I wish the wine wasn't so pricey though!
Everything was wonderful. The wine was delicious and I can't say enough good things about my pizza. Wish we could have tried the burrata feature but apparently they were out of it. Next time!
everything was great....loved those Brussel sprouts and the pizza was terrific!
The pizza is excellent. A chewy delicate crust. The two toppings were tasty but not too rich. A very pleasant feeling after eating a pizza. Comfortably full. The right balance of flavour and texture is achieved.
We hadn't been to Nicli Antica for a couple of years as the last time we visited, the entire experience was substandard compared to when Nicli first appeared on Vancouver's dining destination and place to go for the best pizza in town. After visiting on Saturday, we are cautiously optimistic that perhaps Nicli is back as our Pizzeria of choice in Vancouver. While we enjoyed the Octavian salad, we felt that it was salad dressing drenched - too heavy on the dressing. In addition, the bacon, while tasty, was underdone. The pizzas that we ordered were significantly improved relative to our visit of two years ago. The beer my partner ordered - the house draft - was good, but she felt that its taste would have been enhanced had it been served in a frosted glass.
Fabulous mushroom pizza.
Was here a few years ago and we loved it. Very disappointed with some staff and the pizza we ordered had too many ingredients on it so it was weighed down and soggy. The acoustics are terrible, very noisy. We initially had a server with attitude and then a lovely lady took over the table. They were all engaged in 'office gossip' and not attending to the crowd at certain points throughout the night. It was disappointing as a whole to say the least.
Food was great, server was excellent! Just that I went there with a baby, none of the food on the menu are baby friendly (I ordered some meatballs for her and they were too spicy for baby), my husband and I enjoyed the food a lot, the server was great! I ended up feeding my baby outside food and the server was understanding, I just feel bad that I have to feed her food that's not from the menu! I understand having a kid menu or kid friendly food is difficult or costly, but that'd be a nice options for parents with young kids, also I don't see any diaper pad in the bathroom, that'd be a nice addition too! High chair from stokke WOW me but lack of other kid friendly features slightly disappointed me, I still love Nicli but might not visit again until my baby can eat slightly spicy food. LOVE YOUR FOOD
Looking forward to going back! Great pizza!
The food was exceptional
Amazing pizza and great service❤️❤️
The fact that it's one of the best pizzerias in the city is troublesome. Unfortunately, the crust on our pizza was hard and crunchy, and the toppings was far from impressive. Fresca was bland with too much ricotta and Porchetta special was drowning in fat.
Incredible pizza, and super friendly service from whoever the guy was who served us (8:30pm on Thursday the 26th of april at the north west corner of the restaurant). Thank you!
If you want traditional Napolese pizza, this is the place to go. Absolutely exquisite!
Great place for a quick bite to eat or a date. Nice atmosphere, not too loud and great service, highly recommended.
Our server was the best! I think his name was Johnny. We had a large group and he was allllll over it.
My favourite pizza place! Great food, atmosphere, and service. Thank you for looking after our large party and attending to everyone's needs; the staff were super friendly and accommodating.
Pizzas are exceptional; wines by the glass, not so much. Staff used to be much more engaged.
We had reservations for dinner that evening and we showed up and were sat in the very back because the front was rented out to a large party. We sat there for over one hour and received or drinks and one appetizer and when we asked our waitress where the rest of our food was she said that she apologize it was going to be a bit longer. We have been to this restaurant many times however waiting an hour and a half to two hours to get your pizza is ridiculous very very disappointed with this visit. Not sure if I would return.
The loud drone of music is unpleasant. We love the happy hour deal, but it was a better value when it was $10 and there was a couple more choice of drinks.
Great ambiance. Excellent service.
We had a fabulous time...food was excellent and had the best server!!! BUT the music was so loud we could barely hear each other 🙁.
Made a reservation for about 30 people they gave us 2 long tables and had a designated server for us. They allowed us to stand around and mingle as well as sit and eat - all in all, a lovely experience and delicious pizza!
