I love this place. We go here once a month and I always order the special pizza. I have not been disappointed yet! The staff are very helpful. Try Rocco's salad. It's a treat to go here!

Very tasty authentic wood oven pizza's with fresh ingredients. I could have a dinner of just the crust alone. The Ossington location is the original restaurant and it's got a good vibe, although for some it could be too noisy. Our waitress was excellent - knowledgeable and courteous. I found it too be slightly expensive as for a family of... More

For authentic Italian cuisine, look no further. Libretto keeps things simple and to the basics- thin crust pizzas with fresh toppings, delicious pastas, salads, beef carpaccio, Italian desserts. Great lunch prix fixe menu that includes a salad, pizza and dessert. Prices are reasonable. Gets very busy and quite loud at night.

For a true Naples style thin crust pizza, this is the place. Appetizers are great too. We usually order the plain cheese Magherita or with anchovies. Prices are midrange. Style is casual. Sevice is fast and courteous. Great fun.

I was staying downtown in the entertainment district one weekend and on a quiet Sunday night I had a craving for Italian. I had passed by Pizzeria Libretto on University Ave a couple times that weekend so I knew where it was so decided to check it out. It was a good decision. The restaurant was not terribly busy which... More

I went with a friend and her two children. The pizza is amazing! And the waitress really nice! It's really difficult to find a pizza like it! It's a shame that the place is a little bit too small... but everything else was perfect. Can't wait to come back soon!

Visiting Toronto on Valentines weekend we tried this spot based on the glowing online reviews. 5 pm on the Friday night we went in without a reservation. The “hostess” begrudgingly sat us at a small table and after a wait we were punished with the worst waitress I’ve experienced in 30 years of dining out. I’ve never in my life... More

This is a good goto thin crust pizza place when in Toronto. We tried 3 different pies the feature of the day a Maple Soppressata Salami tomato basil , 2 a prosciutto and arugula and 3 their Margherita D.O.P. We found all three to have their own unique flavor and taste. The price was reasonable. Service was quick. The cook... More
