Restaurants offering take out friendly dining in Vancouver

Author: Rachel Pinsky

Pizzeria La Sorrentina — which received high praise from Portland Monthly food critic, Karen Brooks, for their Neapolitan pizzas — has finally opened its brick-and-mortar restaurant in a strip mall off 164th Avenue in East Vancouver. Owner and chef Daisuke Matsumoto bakes fire-roasted red sauce pizzas like the classic Margherita, as well as white sauce pizzas like the Terra Mia with eggplant parmesan, sausage, mozzarella, pesto, and basil on traditional or gluten-free crusts. Salads, antipasto, pasta, dessert from the regular menu and fresh loaves of bread from the pizza oven can be ordered to go. The specials menu varies based on Chef Matsumoto’s whims and occasionally includes portable items like take-and-bake eggplant parmesan and lasagna. Orders can be placed by phone.
