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!

Great Gelato and Sandwich

Visited this place about a year ago with Groupon. Though I think the owner was a little overwhelmed with the coupon, which was difficult to redeem, the food was great - many unique flavors for Gelato and texture was great. Sandwich was good too.

Great quality food, especially home made soup of the day, and sandwiches for lunch. Very good espresso too. And lots of options for treats to go with coffee. Heard great things about their Gelato, which looks amazing, but never tried it. Perfect spot for an early lunch off St Lawrence Market which gets a bit crazy on Saturdays... Family friendly,...

We're happy to hear that you're a fan of our soups and sandwiches! I'm disappointed that the service has been slow during your visits, though. Hopefully we'll see you again soon so that we can wow you with both the food and the service -- and maybe you can try some gelato! Best, Shant B - Owner/Operator More

We have been there many times. There Gelato is amongst the best in the city. They have many "different" flavours. Very creative. Their pizza is also good. A very good bet.

We simply love this place. It is close to our work and we get coffee, cakes, and pizza very often. The staff is very friendly and nice. Always amazing espresso made of top quality beans. It is actually not easy to find such a good quality coffee in Toronto. I would say the best for espresso and pizza. Also a... More

Found this place through Tripadvisor and the reviews were not lying. Nice decor, good pizza, amazing ice cream and a very good vibe to make the experience even better. In my opinion it's one of Toronto's hidden gems.
