Commercial drive was the first home of the Italian community in Vancouver in the 1950’s and many of the original family run shops are still there today. Local restaurateurs, merchants, and baristas serve up authentic Naples certified pizza, gourmet paninis, Italian deli meats & cheeses, Pasta with creamy mushroom & truffle oil, freshly baked cannoli, creamy hazelnut gelato, rich cappuccino and more!
Comments From Our Little Italy Tours...
Enjoyed the tour with Jewell, in the little Italy area of Commercial Drive..well planned, With the delicatessen, fantastic sandwich...with hundreds of different cheeses, and mostly from Italy.....nice pasta lunch, Coffee with gelato, hmm! gelato made in the true Italian way(by a family from Italy) their daughters were sent to Italy to learn the proper way to make this delicious treat. Seeing a real Italian pizza oven that cooks pizza in about 90 seconds...a great shop, with anything Italian you need to make, those fantastic dishes...well run even on a real cold winter day in Vancouver..
"Great tour even for locals!"
Four of us went on the Little Italy Food tour. Our group was large (16?) but Brent, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and easily projected his voice so all could hear, so it was no problem. The tour was a good 2 1/2 hours, with a varied selection of eateries to visit. Portions are a good size, so I only had breakfast that day, and a small snack before bed! We all enjoyed our afternoon, and I returned the next week and purchased from some of the places we visited.
