I visited recently for supper with my mother, tried a bunch of dishes, and did not leave disappointed!
The day that my mother and I visited was the first day that they started offering table service in the restaurant, so if you’ve visited before; you don’t need to order at the counter anymore! We ordered local beers, garlic knots and a small pasta salad while we decided which of the many pizzas we’d be trying.
The garlic knots came with cheese on top, and a generous ranch dipping sauce. The knots made it both crispy and soft, and we devoured them so quickly! The pasta salad was full of vegetables, with large chunks of artichoke, sun-dried tomatoes, and asparagus. It reminded me of the Mediterranean pasta salad I used to order from grocery stores in my omnivore days, but a million times better.
We couldn’t decide on just one pizza each, so we ordered two and split them! The first was the Chorizo and Artichoke Pizza, which had tomato sauce, spicy sausage, mozzarella, artichokes, hot honey drizzle and lemon ricotta. This pizza was spicy and yummy, and while I wasn’t sure about a lemon flavour, the lemon ricotta ended up being my favourite part of the pizza!
The second pizza we ordered was Stranger Wings. This was a white pizza with buffalo cauliflower, shallots, blue cheese drizzle and scallions on top. The buffalo cauliflower was just so yummy—you’d hardly know it was just boring cauliflower! The blue cheese on top kept it from getting too spicy, and the whole thing just went really well together.
My mother didn’t want to order Stranger Wings at first because she doesn’t like white pizzas; “too boring”, but this one ended up being both of our favourites. I mean, both pizzas were delicious, but the cauliflower on the Stranger Wings was just so yummy!
Even though we had already eaten two courses, we had to try some of their made in house ice cream. Virtuous Pie offers ice cream flights: your choice of three flavours in individual bowls, and we ordered one of those to split. We chose key lime pie, rocky road, and mint + dark chocolate. They were all so good, but if we were forced to pick a winner, we both agreed that key lime pie was the favourite.
We left full and happy, and will definitely visit again!
