  • Urbano Pizza Co. Officially Open June 04, 2015

    Edmonton’s charismatic culinary duo Christian Mena and Lino Oliviera, lifelong friends and proprietors of SABOR Restaurant and Bodega Tapas and Wine Bar, are proud to announce their expansion and new shared venture Urbano Pizza Co. Complete Story>>>

    Big flavour, high-velocity, micro-pizzeria with soul now open.

    Edmonton, Alberta: Edmonton’s charismatic culinary duo Christian Mena and Lino Oliviera, lifelong friends and proprietors of SABOR Restaurant and Bodega Tapas and Wine Bar, are proud to announce their expansion and new shared venture Urbano Pizza Co. located in the circa-1910 Boardwalk Building at 10220 103 Street in downtown Edmonton.

    The notion for a new pizzeria was sparked by a growing craze in the U.S. and inspired by Mena’s daughters, budding foodies with picky palates and nut allergies.

    “With my family in mind, the wheels started turning,” says Mena. “”Urbano tries to accommodate every dietary interest. Lino has spent months perfecting all of our sauces and secret-recipe gluten free crust and more so we can welcome every diner with confidence.”

    The super-fast pizza ovens — colorful and almost toy-like in design are –- personal sized, mobile and cheerful cooking marvels dishing out steamy, delicious pies limited only by maker and consumer imagination. Future off-site Urbano-catered events are being considered.

    These four bright and stylish ovens are the focal point of this re-designed space.

    The ovens allow Urbano to serve an artisanal hearth-style pizza (reaching temperatures up to 450°C) 90-120 seconds, a new standard for average wait times with quick-service cuisines.  Another specialty item for the restaurant is the cherry-red authentic Italian meat slicer called an affettatrice a volano.

    The restored micro-pizzeria features vintage lighting, whitewashed brick and mortar, custom-made reclaimed wood tables, and a six-seat eating bar overlooking the pizza assembly space. Allendale Construction and J Interior Design helped design the intimate space for those who want to linger a little and for eaters on the move.

    With an old-school to modern feel, Chris and Lino have put their stamp on six signature pizzas:

    Nonna’s Fave: A basic Margharita pizza (any cheese, any sauce) and the base to all custom pies

    Pork & Pineapple: Tender slices of porchetta and caramelized pineapple with camembert cheese on Urbano’s signature tomato sauce

    Bubby’s Fave: The pizza version of bagels and lox with a twist – smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, red onions on hollandaise

    Bacon & Eggs: A spin on breakfast with back bacon, caciocavallo cheese, onion jam, topped with two eggs on fire roasted tomato sauce

    Piri Squared: Using the staples in every Portuguese home – Piri-Piri chicken with chorizo, limiano cheese, roasted red peppers, fire-roasted tomato sauce, and shoestring potatoes

    Garden Fire: Carnivores have put a stamp of approval on this hearty pie: grilled portobello mushroms, grilled zucchini, roasted red and yellow peppers, grilled artichokes, grilled eggplant, fire-roasted tomato sauce topped with vegan cheese

    “Pizza first came to Canada in the late 1950s, a time of rock ‘n roll and general contentment,” says musical entertainer-cum-restaurateur Mena. “Fast forward to today and the backdrop for the next wave of pizza is on the rise.  Downtown Edmonton feels invigorated, a little edgy and ready for authentic, creative meals on-the go.”

    “Our guests are sure to have as much fun imagining their favourite new pizzas, watching them bubble and sharing them with friends as we have had creating our Signatures and tooling around these ovens in our new space,” says Oliveira.

    Build-your-own-salads and assorted gelato options escalate any visit up to a full-on Italian three-course feast, fast.
