Lombardo’s Pizzeria and Ristorante

Vancouver has a long beloved history with Italian culture. So much so that in 2016 the city of Vancouver finally and unanimously declared a stretch of Commercial Drive now officially known as Little Italy. After 60 years of Italian settlement, we are still grateful to visit and experience many long-standing Italian merchants.
