When we first opened our doors in 2011, our menu primarily featured our signature pizzas. Since then, the menu remained unchanged, largely due to our philosophy that pizza is and always will be the cornerstone of our business. However, we also believe that change is good. As the experience of dining evolves, we have developed new features throughout our menu to enhance your dining experience.
To encompass this evolution, we expanded from our little oasis on Locke Street South in Hamilton to a bigger space on Brant Street in Burlington. With this expansion came an array of new options, including an antipasto menu, new pizza sizes, and a focus on weekly events and specials exclusive to our Burlington location.
If you come from an Italian upbringing, you might be familiar with the term antipasto, just as you might be familiar with that feeling of being satisfyingly stuffed before the main course even arrives. For those of you more unfamiliar with the term, “antipasto” translates to “starter,” otherwise known as appetizers. An antipasto meal usually consists of the best meats, cheeses and breads to serve as a precursor to the main course. The new antipasto menu will feature and draw upon everything that our owner, Mario Spina, was raised on: homemade prosciutto, cheese, olives, and breads. Uncomplicated, simple and the best of the best for a full, Italian meal.
As we have always catered toward group experiences, we believe that the introduction of the antipasto menu will deepen this communal dining experience; but we know that sometimes you just need to do your own thing. So, we’ve also introduced the personal-sized pizza – perfect for those who can’t fathom parting ways with any of their pizza.
Lastly, and exclusive to our Burlington location, we are proud to be rolling out a new focus on events and specials, beginning with Thirsty Thursdays, which we launched in May 2016. Our drink specials will showcase a unique selection of beers, wines and cocktails which will serve as the perfect companions to your pizza. During Thirsty Thursdays, all bottles of beer will be priced at $3.50, and specially selected drinks including martinis, liquors, sangria, will go for $4.
The introduction of these additions to the menu further adds to our commitment of providing a full, authentic Italian experience; an experience that is only getting fuller as we grow. Here’s hoping we see you soon to enjoy even more great food and drink!
