Yummy!!!! Our server was friendly and the service was super fast. You get bread and dipping oil and the pizzas came out so fast we hardly had to wait! Our server was diligent in refilling waters and I would recommend to everyone.

If you like Neapolitan style pizza, this is your place. I’m reviewing the Danforth location but have also been to the original Ossington spot. Consistently excellent at both. Try the classic Margarita or, my favourite, the eggplant with whipped ricotta. Appetizers don’t disappoint either - try the carpaccio or meatballs, or keep it healthy with a house or beet salad....

The pizza was excellent: tasty and a great thin crust. Both my wife and I loved our salads. We looked at some of the food that was being served to others and it all looked wonderful. The service was friendly and efficient. The only complaint I have is that I thought $10 was a bit much for a medium sized... More

I can't say enough about this place. We're local, and go every weekend, and don't get tired of it. Always solid quality, interesting specials, and quite simply best pizza in the city.

Truth be told, we usually hit Pizza Libretto on the Danforth after a visit to the dentist across the street. Thinking about our lunch makes the time go that much faster! What we get: Their bread to start -- made in those cool ovens. Ricotta Gnocchi Fritti -- melts in your mouth! So good. We get it without the meat.... More

Everything you could want to hit that pizza craving. Arguably best in the city. Good service, tasty wine, great ambience. Enjoy!

Sitdown, or take-out. Great friendly and accommodating. Subtle flavours, a nice light crust on the pizzas. Combinations range from the basic margerita to the duck confit with pear. Large in diametre but light in weight and texture. A nice chatter of groups of friends and families.

We visited late afternoon when there was only 2 other tables being served. We were seated and decided to order 2 pizza's and the rice balls. The pizza's were very good, however, I do think they were undercooked as the thin crust was quit soggy and unable to hold up under the eggplant toppings. The flavour was excellent but the... More

It's been a long time since I gave a restaurant 5 stars but this place deserves it! My husband, my 2yr old and I went in on a Saturday evening, a little after 8pm. I was expecting it to be busy, which it was but they have two floors, the main floor was packed and very loud but they had... More

Been here a few times. Good thin crust pizza and service was good. Pricey for small portions but satisfying with a pint. Good alternative to greek food on the Danforth.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
