Restaurant and Location
Yes, we’re everybody-friendly and look forward to welcoming your whole family. We have high chairs and baby changing facilities available in the washrooms.
If your children have any special needs, do let us know in advance so we may do our best to accommodate.
For the more fidgety or easily-bored, we’ve always got a spare ball of pizza dough that they can play around with (just ask!).
If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, then a wood-fired pizza oven is the best way to reheat them – we realize that that’s not always practical.
- Pre-heat your oven to 400°F / 204°C for about 2-3 mins.
- Cut. Serve. Enjoy.
- Guaranteed to refresh any pizza that has had to travel to you.
Yes. Our restaurant, patio and washrooms are fully accessible. Our patient and friendly staff are also always here to assist you.
We have limited free parking in the back of our restaurant for customers. We also live in between the lovely neighbourhoods of Mount Pleasant, Winston Heights and Bridgeland with free neighbourhood parking where available.
Keep in mind there are Permit-only parking areas to be respectful of, with ample free parking where you can find it.

Aside, you cannot rush perfection.
Ingredients and Oven
Pizza Culture means Napoletana traditional pizza. Not only is our pizza made with long-fermented Italian double zero dough, our Pizza’s are baked in a wood-fired oven at 900°F, which is designed specifically to bake a pizza for 60 – 90 seconds in the same way since the beginning of the 16th century in Naples.
We use dried, seasoned hardwoods such as Apple and Cherry (with a moisture content below 20%). Our wood comes directly from orchards in the Okanagan Valley, BC. We favour these varieties for their ability to burn at high temperatures and their aromas.
Typically the wood we use is 14-18 inches and we feed the oven to maintain cooking temperatures.
To make an authentic Napoletana pizza you need the right ingredients, a little patience and a lot of love. We rely on ingredients directly imported from Italy or sourced as locally as possible.

We’re really glad you asked! We also make the best sourdough breads for order this side of San Francisco. A bold claim, yes, but we stand behind our buns. We produce a number of different breads to order.
Please contact us if you are interesting in purchasing bread from our little micro-bakery.
