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!

Great gelato, good food!

Stopped by G for Gelato this evening. My wife and I had paninis (veggie and chicken parm) and of course gelato! The entrees were fine, though not amazing. The gelato was GREAT! Definitely worth a stop. Be aware that bathrooms are downstairs and may not be handicapped accessible.

Stopped in for some gelato of course. Was a bit pricey I thought. Got two scoops. It was tasty. Nothing overly fantastic. Service was friendly and quick.

It's good to hear that you enjoyed your gelato, but I'm disappointed that our prices didn't sit well with you. We always want every bite to wow you. Hopefully you'll give us another chance in the future, and maybe try another flavor. Best, Shant B - Owner/Operator More

My husband and I originally heard about this place from TripAdvisor thinking it was a small ice cream shop. Think again. They have the best homemade gelato and so many new seasonal flavors and classics. We come here 5 times every summer and always bring our friends from out of town. I am sure that their food are amazing too... More

We're honored that you think we're the best gelato around, Trisha! Thanks so much for continuing to spread the word and bring friends. I hope next time you can try something off our food menu... and get dessert after, of course. Best, Shant B - Owner/Operator More

By coincidence I came across G for Gelato. I was in a hurry to drop in. I just asked for the fast lunch since I had a meeting about 20 minutes later. The server suggested me to have foccacia. That was so delicious beyond my expectation.

Shant B, Owner at G for Gelato, responded to this review

I'm so glad the foccacia exceeded your expectations! It's definitely a good choice for a lunch on the run. Hopefully when you return you'll have a little more time to hang out and try a few more things from the menu. Best, Shant B - Owner/Operator More

I remember reading reviews for G for Gelato when I was researching places to eat/things to do for my 8 night stay in Toronto. Then I completely forgot about it until the second to last evening we were there!! The place isn't huge so I suspect when its busy its hard to get a table. However, the food is incredible.... More

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.
