Out on a Saturday night in the Denman/Robson area with some friends – showed up at Nook at about 9pm and waited about 30 minutes for a table. The host/(?owner) was very gracious, offered us some drinks, and kept us apprised of the seating situation. They had a reasonable selection of the few usual Italian beers (Peroni, Moretti, Manabrea), and a reasonably short wine list. The decor is nice, retro 60’s teak-wood and brass fittings, reminiscent of Les Faux Bourgeois (and of my great-aunt’s basement), the bathrooms are clean, and the chef’s table is great thing to have – and one I might like to come back and try.

Our server was very nice, polite, attentive, and we never waited for assistance. The food? Well, the crostini were underwhelming, and tasted a bit too strongly of liver for chicken liver crostini – I wondered if the pate was over a few hours old. The pizza was tasty, with a crispy, thin crust, and a perfect amount of toppings – I’d come here any time for pizza. The gnocchi were decent, the meat balls a bit bland, but this dish won’t offend anyone.

Overall, I’d go to Nook any time for the pizza, although like every place in the Denman area, you’ll probably have to wait. It’s a good place to have some pizza, try an Italian beer (or three), and enjoy your evening.
