I tried many pizzas here and I have to say that the one with lots of vegetables is one of the bests I ever tried (also including Italy). Warm and relaxed atmosphere.

This is a review of the restaurant on University Ave, which we prefer to the noisy Danforth location. We've been going there for years. The service is always very good. Unfortunately, management decided to streamline the menu a few weeks ago, and although you can...More

We had the white pizza with mushrooms and it was really tasty. The caprese was a let down however. The service was fast and attentive.

The pizza here is absolutely amazing! I don’t know what they do but the dough is perfect - thin but chewy!! The gnocchi is also a must have. Just a heads up there’s usually a bit of a wait for a table but it’s worth...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
