Just go!

This is now my favourite pizza place in Toronto. Went to the Ossington one on a Wednesday evening. Got a table easily at 6pm. Although you can't reserve a table at this one I think you can at the other branches (check at pizzerialibretto.com). Staff were lovely, service was efficient but... read more

Hard to get in and a pain to wait as they don't take reservations.... However....all that said....totally worth it. Been all over Italy and this rivals the best on the boot. Try every kind :)

There is just one thing about kids: they love their pizza. Since this is something they always eat with pleasure, we chose to go to Pizzeria Libretto. The place is quite nice with a beautiful decor. During the weekends it isn't full opposed to weekdays at lunch hour. We had a table for four. The staff was very nice even... More

I was most excited to try Libretto Pizza on King. I chose this as the location to celebrate my birthday. The pizza was average-- I would say it is a solid good, but not excellent. What disappointed me the most was that the server accidentally dropped the pizza on my daughter's coat and hand bag. It was a mess! They... More

Visited late Sunday evening after a performance and was pleased with what they had to offer. Started with fried gnocchi and also had pizzas. Good food and waiter very friendly. Would definitely go back.

I visited the new King Street location within a month of opening, twice. Both times were in big groups and both times, I was very impressed with the service and attention we got. Well done Libretto. The starters were first, the beet caprese salad, then Rocco's Salad on visit two. The latter one is more filing with a perfect deep... More

I visited the Ossington location after many recommendations and it did not disappoint! When I ate pizza in Naples for the first time it was an incredibly emotional experience for me! I had never tasted anything so divine--so perfect. This pizza took me right back to Naples. It was massive as well! I got a pizza that was topped with... More

The hostess and our server were both friendly and helpful. I have been to the Ossington Pizzeria Libretto a number of times and this was my first time at the King location. The menu is exactly the same and had my favourite dishes: the arugula and pear salad and the calamari with the to die for sauce. We also had... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
