Description: In the heart of the historic St. Lawrence Market, G For Gelato and Pizza...
In the heart of the historic St. Lawrence Market, G For Gelato and Pizza Bar serves the finest gelato in Toronto, made with recipes passed down in the Polsinelli family for years. From classic roasted pistachio to creative flavor pairings like coconut basil, blueberry lavender, and London Fog (vanilla and Earl Grey tea), we make our gelato using the freshest ingredients and source many seasonal fruits and veggies from local farmers markets. In our cozy, rustic space, we also serve hand-tossed thin crust pizzas as well as foccacia paninis, frittatas, pastas, and fresh salads. Start your morning with our hand-crafted coffee and espresso drinks paired with a sweet pastry, or sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch with our house favorite funghi pizza, a white pizza topped with mixed mushrooms, fresh arugula, and a drizzle of truffle oil. Need to bring a taste of Italy to your next celebration or corporate luncheon? We also cater and deliver at your convenience. For a sweet break in your day, sit and stay with us at G For Gelato and Pizza Bar for traditional Italian dishes, quiet conversations, and the best gelato in Toronto. We hope to see you soon!

Best pizza ever

Had discovered it for gelato and was happy to rate it a 5 last year. Had the opportunity to return and try the pizza. Not a fan of pizza normally but the funghi pizza is the best I ever had- including pizza from Italy . Even returned -and it was just as good. And the gelato - new flavor -... read more

Great pizza, gelato and coffee! Stop by in the summer for amazing gelato flavours and big servings, but don't forget them for pasta and paninis too!

After 2 weeks in the US is was just great to find somewhere serving a good espresso. The gelato however, was outstanding. Traditional Italian flavours complimented by North American favourites. We did not get to try the soup or sandwiches but those we observed were eating heartily. A very enjoyable experience with a great location by the market.

Out for a stroll and came across G for Gelato and since it was a hot day and it said it was the best Gelato in Toronto, we decided to give it a try. Plenty of flavours on offer and with great service it was a good choice. Ice cream was delicious.

Friendly staff, good coffee and great gelato. G's has so many flavours to choose from and they are always changing it up and not afraid to try new flavour ideas. The perfect location too.... Grab a Gelato and head to St James Park to relax. Doesn't get much better than this!

G for Gelato has great gelato in a great location on Adelaide St E. Walk up to the register, pay for your ideal size, get a paper ticket, and then time to make the tough decisions. They offer a wide variety of gelato including the staples but also more interesting varieties including PB&J. Sea Salt Caramel is my favorite but... More

We spent one night at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown and the desk manager recommended this restaurant as close and good. She was right! My husband and I had sandwiches - a meatball and a chicken parmigiana. Both were tasty. And, of course, for dessert, we each had a small gelato - carrot cake (and it was very good) and... More

Love the chocolate lover's gelato flavour this year. Loved the chocolate flavour last year. Both times, the obvious flavour is nowhere to be found (although it's generally just in the freezer down the hall), and only one server is happy to look for it. Not really sure why the business policy seems to be let the customer walk out the... More

We live around the corner from this place and when it first opened a couple of years back it was actually a pretty great place. Recently though, I would say the gelato is mediocre. It's probably always been, but we were a bit blinded due to it being local. However, the prices keep going up and the serving size is... More

Went for a snack and gelato, close to St Laurence Market. Open till late. Gelato choice was good and tasted sooo good . Pizza was just ok though but that night we did not have time both unless they were in the same restaurant.
