My partner and I come here all the time. It has a great atmosphere, extremely friendly service, and absolutely unforgettable pizza. I always seem to come back for the duck confit, a white pizza, which is simply mouth-watering. They have daily specials with some truly imaginative creations, so there's always a new option on top of old favourites. Their appetizers... More

I LOVE this place. It is one of my friends and I's favourite Pizza places in Toronto. Service is always excellent and fairly quick. Suggest making reservations because it's often packed :)

The homemade bread was fantastic - baked in house with with crust charred from the wood fired oven. It came with a hot chilli dipping oil - quite flavourful. The meatball and grilled calamari appetizers were both very good but the definite star if the show was the Margareta pizza - it was simply fabulous and the best pizza that... More

getting better all the time. So sang the Beatles and those lyrics reminded me of earlier experiences at this eatery--they had a ways to go yet. Pizzas were very inconsistent here, either burnt or undercooked. Bringing a relative here for a festive occasion turned out to be a bit embarrassing back then. Buit.....now things seem to have improved. At a... More

A nice cozy family style restaurant with reasonable prices for top quality product. I ordered the margherita with buffalo mozzarella and arugula on top. Incredible crust just like I had in Italyand the toppings were flavourfull and delicious. I had the tiramisu for dessert which came in a Masson jar. Different in the sense that the coffee flavour did not... More

What a great find! Excellent wood-fired pizza in a funky neighborhood. If you are in the area it is certainly worth a stop. Very unique toppings, excellent hand tossed crust, perfectly baked. The atmosphere is fun and service is top notch.

Went on a Sunday for lunch. No wait at all. Ordered a pizza special. Homemade pepperoni, cheese and pickled peppers. Killer! A bit pricey-but you have to surrender to pay for perfection!

This is a popular pizza spot in Toronto for many years. It attracts a younger crowd in a more urban setting. On weekends there can be a wait time and frankly I'm not sure it's worth it. Noise levels are quite high and you're bound to be shouting across your table to be heard. Services levels are friendly. And like... More

The wait was about 30-35 minutes. Was worth it... The pizza was fantastic! It was only a couple shakes of the salt away from tasting exactly like the pizzerias in Naples Italy. Loved it and will definately come back to eat here.

Great service, fantastic food, awesome atmosphere! Very lovely servers and the food is amazing. Despite it being a pizza place - don't be shy to try other options: the cured meat, cheese, gnocchi - all amazing!
