Neighbourhood Pizza brings hip-hop and good vibes to Kenmore

Making the right slice is a fine process, but one that Jordan Lomas and the team at Neighbourhood Pizza in Kenmore have turned into an art form. If perfectly cooked pizzas paired with boutique wines and beer, served in a chic setting with hip hop and jazz music providing ambience are your bag, then let us welcome you to the neighbourhood. more
