Passion for pizza

Owner Carmine Paradiso’s Italian roots run deep. Born in Southern Italy, Carmine grew up in East Vancouver’s historic Italian Canadian community. 

NOVO is where families and friends can linger over authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizza and Italian wines. Along with an expansive wine bar, NOVO features a full menu that includes 900-degree wood burning pizza, antipasti, salads and house-made fresh pasta dishes reminiscent of Carmine’s childhood.

Our pizza dough starts off with imported, “00” stone-ground Caputo flour—the number one choice of pizzaiolis in Italy. We add water, salt, yeast and love. We age our dough for 72 hours to enhance the flavour and texture. Shaping each dough by hand, we top it with hand-crushed tomatoes and fresh, quality regional ingredients.

Now ready for our wood fuelled wood-burning oven, it will cook for about a minute at approximately 900 degrees, with the flavour of the wood being imparted on every pie. We top our pizza with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of flaked sea salt. Then we say buon appetito! and let you discover the rest by taste
