We ate at the newest restaurant at 155 University. The staff was extremely helpful with the menu and no one was disappointed. The wood fired pizza was incredible,very tasty,not overwhelming. The wine list was a nice selection and we all had something different. It is certainly a place we shall return to.

I don't love having one drink and a pizza and it costing nearly $30...but, if you are in the mood for 'upper-crust' pizza, this is a great place. Located on trendy Ossington, this little place was lined up the night we came. We were put at not the best table (right by the kitchen entrance, so there was a lot... More

We only eat spelt pizza so coming here is always a treat. We pretty much have the same: Rocco salad, carafe of wine, margherita and duck confit spelt pizzas. Service always awesome, prices higher than your average pizza restaurant but well worth it. We also get the take-out, which is very quick, about 20 minutes.

The food here is promising, but the portions are small and prices are high. I would recommend here on a special occasion. Always ask for the chefs special :]

Went for an early dinner with five other hungry friends. The vibe was calm, friendly and service was quick. We ordered arancini balls and beef carpaccio. Both were phenomenal. Then we ordered the pizzas. I got the margherita with bufala mozzarella. The dough wS flavourful, crispy and slightly charred and soft and fluffy inside. The sauce was perfection and the... More

I visited the University location recently for lunch and was not disappointed. We didn't make a reso (highly recommend that you do!) We were lucky and got 2 seats at the bar. The service here is wonderful as is the $15 3 course lunch menu! Highly recommend you check out Libretto if you are in the area

Late night stop so restaurant was quiet. Beautifully decorated with a well stocked bar. Pizza takes 90 seconds to cook in the oven and comes out with a crispy edge and soft centre...delicious! A great authentic taste using quality ingredients.

I am a senior, and my wife and I went for lunch with our son and his girlfriend. They chose the place. Not that it matters, but 80 per cent of the customers were under 35. The pizzas are thin crust, Italian style, and are 13 inches in diameter -- enough for one person for lunch. We had 3 between... More

The pizza itself is good. 2 people would cost about $25 with tip - pizza and 2 waters for $22.50. I don't know about the other food so can't comment on that. On Saturday evening we ordered a pizza and finished our meal - no problems. The problem was when the bill came. The issue I had is that both... More

I was expecting better. The thin-crust pizzas were tasty but it is not a wood-fired oven at the University Avenue branch. They should offer more options for toppings (e.g. where's the bacon?). Tables for 2 are very small and cramped, good for a quick bite, I suppose, but not for lingering. Otherwise, decor was modern, bright and clean; service was... More
