If you’re in search of tried and true Italian pizza, LDV is a must go. Their combination of high quality ingredients and a classic, wood-burning oven has allowed them to perfect both the taste and authenticity of the pizza they create.
This eatery is housed in the old La Dolce Vita restaurant on 1 Ave NE in Bridgeland. When you enter the main floor, you’re immediately greeted by a grand staircase. As you travel up it, the Italian aromas fill the air and warm your heart. The rustic setting offers both a casual and intimate feeling where friends and family can gather. The menu itself has numerous pizza options, as well as classic Italian appetizers, salads, and entrees. We started our meal with their Italian fries which were recommended to us as the best fries in town. Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. They’re thick cut, covered in rosemary and parmesan cheese, and accompanied by a delicious truffle aioli. Visiting for the pizza, we ordered two: the margharita and the crazy calabrese. The margharita was a simple go-to with deliciously tasting fresh tomato sauce and covered with cheese and basil. On the other hand, the crazy calabrese was a spicy meat lovers dream. The thin crust, foldability of it, and great flavors brought back memories of Italy. I wouldn’t hesitate to order both again.
This family-run business is true to their Italian heritage. If it’s genuine Italian pizza you’re looking for, give theirs a try!
