PizzeriaPrima Strada, with its two locations, one in Cook Street Village and the other on Bridge Street, is one of two restaurants serving authentic Neapolitan pizza in Victoria (the other is Famoso Pizzeria).
Prima Strada offers diners the chance to see their pizza being made, with an open kitchen and their large, wood fired pizzaoven.
For our lunch, we ordered the Diavola ($14.50), and the classic Pepperoni ($15.50). Temperatures in the pizza oven reach almost 1000 degrees, meaning your pizza is fully cooked and ready to eat within mere minutes.
The Diavola is served with calabrese salame, tomato, mozzarella, parmigiano, and red onions. The dough is light and fluffy, resulting in a delicious thin crust. The combination of the red onions and calabrese salami makes this pizza particularly spicy, so if you don’t like spicy food, you may want to look elsewhere on the menu. For everyone else, this pizza is delicious!
The Pepperoni is served with tomato, choux choux pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, pecorino, garlic, chilis, and oregano. The first thing you notice about this pizza is that it does not look like your traditional pepperoni pizza. That is because Prima Strada uses authentic, quality ingredients, including real pepperoni. You may think that ordering a pepperoni pizza would be boring, but if you have not had a real pepperoni pizza, you must try it.
If you are looking for a change from the regular take-out pizza, and want to enjoy a real Neapolitan pizza, Pizzeria Prima Strada is always a good bet. It is a great place for a business lunch, or for a casual dinner with friends.
