After hiking with a group at Little Qualicum River Falls, 10 of us stopped for lunch at Cuckoo Tratoria and Pizzeria. As usual, the food was excellent. The Vesuvius lived up to its spicy label and the spicy prawn appetizer was excellent! 10 prawns in...More

Though the terrace was closed due to rain, the inside was inviting. We three shared different entradas, along with a large sangria. Our waiter was efficient and friendly.

This is an ok place, but expensive for what you get. Some in our party liked the pizza, but it is over-priced. Parking is easy, and the setting is nice. Server was average, not very interested in his customers.

While this is an italian restaurant there is a section of the menu that is marked gluten free. Dress is casual - not business just casual. This restaurant is very classy and I would suggest something a bit more up scale... More
