Let me tell you, Dina's Cucina has got to be the best pizza I've ever had. I recently went in and asked for a Pierre's Pick, my old favorite. Turns out they changed the name, whatever, still the exact same pizza. I gargled the pizza down quicker than you could say "19% off deal". (Which is the deal I took advantage of, by the way! Bit of a strange number, but I'm not complaining.) This place is amazing, the gentlemen working there (I believe he said his name was Ling?) was very helpful! 10/10
The first bite blew up my taste buds! I chewed slowly savouring every flavour explosion from then on. I still can’t tell you which side I liked better because it was the best pizza of my fifty-two year existence. I couldn’t make up my mind there were so many awarding choices to choose from. Finally, Diana helped me decide on a two-sided pizza and a complementing beer choice. You see I was compelled visit after reading for years about Diana's amazing pizza's in Dan Kennedy's books and newsletters, I am happy to have had the opportunity to visit her wonderful Cucina and Lounge. I’m now plotting ways to travel back to Winnipeg from Toronto for chance to eat another pizza.
Let me start by saying when it comes to pizza I'm not a lover of saucy pizza. I am however a lover of pizza (usually order once a week, often from Gondola). In the past whenever I have been interested in Diana's I'm put off by the high prices, today however I decided to give this a try. Whenever I try a new place I always go simple so I ordered the ultimate pepperoni. The acidity of the sauce just overwhelmed my palate to the point where I couldn't really taste much else. Then I thought maybe I'm eating it too hot. So I let it cool down hoping I could taste everything better, however I still felt it was too acidic. The toppings and the cheese taste good if you remove a lot of the sauce, and although a little greasy I did feel the pizza was cooked relatively well. It wasn't at all doughy. In the end I don't think I would order again but if I did I would certainly make sure the pizza was lightly sauced.
We enjoy ordering pizza from Diana's because we know the quality of the ingredients are excellent. Great variety of pizza and salads and wings! The vegan cheese is amazing and tastes great. Staff are amazing and we have had the privilege of meeting Diana...so passionate about what she does.
Pizza is very good. Their Moosehead beer crust is so tasty and unique to other so called pizzerias. They have the regular pie offerings like others do; however their specialty pizza is where to choose from. We had 2 specialty pies: Havarti Heaven and Ricky's Revenge. Both were very tasty. My reasoning for 4 star and not 5 star review is their dine in experience is less than desirable. They need to put some money from their pie sales back into the restaurant. It could be so much nicer eating experience with their tasty pies. The benches are horribly hand crafted seats. The wine holder is DIY pallet project. Kitschy or tacky? The server was friendly and informed. Licensed dining room and lots of free parking. Try a tasty pie!
