After running several errands today, my adorable husband said he was going to treat me to lunch. We heard of one restaurant in Town that had new owners, so we thought we would try it.
Well, let me inform you how NOT to get customers in the door. With the top half of the restaurant almost empty, we were told it would be about 15-20 minute wait. I asked why when the tables were empty. The reply was” we have big tables and they were busy”. We thanked her and left, not to return I might add.
I am so glad we didn’t stay. We returned to Amore Pizza Factory up the road and went in. The decor had changed a little and I had to ask if it was still Amore Pizza. We were assured it was. On that note, we sat down and perused the menu.
We ordered our lunch and when the gentleman (found out later his name was Peyman) returned to our table, I told him we had a mutual friend or so I thought. He asked who it was and when I told him, we had a real good conversation.
I digress….this was and still is THE best pizza that we had had in about 1 1/2 years (last time we were here). The crust is light and crispy on the bottom, the ingredients are fresh and everything is made from scratch. We shared a pizza and it was wonderful.
Note: If you live here or are just passing through be sure to stop here and order a pizza. You won’t be disappointed.
p.s. thanks David for telling us about this restaurant.
One Response to Amore Pizza Factory, Oliver, B.C.
The name of the first restaurant is Pappa’s Firehall Bistro. It used to be one of the “go to” places in Oliver, but not anymore. New management have a few kinks to iron out and maybe with time they’ll learn to handle more than a half full restaurant……
