Been meaning to check out Sopra Sotta Pizzeria with a few co-workers for the last few months. They have a second location on Commercial Drive. This location is nearby to Chad Thai.
We dropped in on a Friday (around 11:45am) and were able to grab a table in the back for 6. The inside is beautiful and the pizza stove/oven is on full display. Only one waiter so it took some time to get our order in.
Fresh pizza dough!
They also have a daily happy hour (2:00pm to 5:00pm) with a few drinks and pizzas on special ($9.00 to $14.00).
It’s a bit disappointing that they don’t offer any lunch specials.
2x Chitarrine al ragù ($20.00)
Square spaghetti made fresh in-house served with a bolognese sauce. The spaghetti had a great al dente bite. Sauce was fresh and flavourful. Sometimes simple is best but a little pricey for what you get. It needed something else, a bit of meat would have helped balance the dish out.
Dough had a good chew and slight, enjoyable crispness to the crust.
Roasted zucchini, eggplant, red peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, parsley, mozzarella and grana cheese. This co-worker found her pizza had too much going on and that the vegetables weren’t sliced thin enough.
Not the cheapest spot but SSP is popular.
