Toronto's friends took me to the Libretto Pizzeria last day. It was crowded but we were kindly asked to wait for a while. The place is great! Our table was right in the middle of the room, so we were like in the middle of a twister (moving people all around and very noisy)! The food is great quality! The... More

Last night was my second time at Pizzaeria Libretto. I have now been to the Ossington Ave location and the newly opened University Ave location. At both locations, service was excellent and the pizza was more than delicious. I mean, who doesn't love pizza? I am happy that they have now opened the University Ave location since it is an...

This is the closest to Pizza from Italy that I have gotten in Toronto. Libretto's has an authentic Neapolitan oven, which gets to temperatures as high as 850 deg F. The result is a thin crust pizza that melts in your mouth! The homemade sauce and use of fresh produce makes their pizza so special. They have weekly specialty pizzas,... More

I love pizza, and the pizza here is excellent. The service is relaxed, and the ambiance is also relaxed. Very comfortable bringing kids here, although we went mid week so it was not full. Definitely one of the top pizza experiences in Toronto. I have eaten a lot worse in italy. They have a spicy sausage pizza which is extremely... More

I'm not a fan of Neapolitan Pizza and Pizzeria Libretto doesn't make it any better than any where else. I find the pizza is cooked so quickly in a very hot oven that the sauce is essentially raw. The cheese is in little pieces and really not melted thoroughly. I prefer a more crispy pizza with a cheese topping that... More

Not since Mama Nina's in Bethlehem, New Jersey have I experienced such a wonderful Italian culinary delete. I have eaten many pizzas in my life and this has to be the best, hands-down to date. The dough was heavenly and we will return tonight for round two. The Chocolate-Amaretto Budino was also a very delicious and shareable desert. Highly recommended... More

This was our second trip to this restaurant on Ossington in Toronto. If you need to eat by a certain time then get there early. No reservations and always a line up, but well worth the wait. The pizza is tasty and you don't leave feeling like you ate too much. Get the warm olive appetizer - wowzer! Would really... More

OK, this MAY be a slight exaggeration, but it was pretty close! This location (Danforth) was recommended to me by a fellow foodie, one of my George Brown College students. The ambiance of the restaurant is inviting. Chic in a deconstructed way. Very comfortable and a great vibe. I have never been to Italy, but I can guess that this... More

Seriously , the best pizza in Canada! Authentic Naples style pizza. Interesting combinations, super spicy just like I love! Interior is warm and inviting. Great wine and beer menu. Well priced! Make a reservation as the place is busy!
