True, authentic Italian style pizza in Toronto

This pizza tastes exactly like the pizza in Italy. Period. I'm not talking about the garbage they try to pass off in the tourist trap areas of Rome or Venice. This pizza tastes like the pizza in Italian pizzerias where the native Italians eat, and is the best I've had in the GTA by miles.

Thin and crispy pizza here tastes great. We ordered a beet / goat cheese salad for starter and were not disappointed. Service was great and the pizza absolutely delicious. Will highly recommend.

Pizzeria Libretto never disappoints! I have been to this location several times and ordered many of their pizzas and desserts, the specials are always delicious (even though they sometimes sound unique). The service is professional and it's a great date spot. Love the wine list - have a great selection that you cannot get at the LCBO. The only downside... More

We were quite disappointed as we had quite high expectations by reading all reviews and seeing all advertisements. Each of us ordered different kind of pizza and we all tried each other's. Tomato sauce on the pizza was nothing like San Marzano. It was very acid as if someone poured vinegar all over. I've been in Naples numerous times and... More

great pizza, good salads, wait staff go out of their way. Must try, vanilla ice cream with their espresso drizzled over, to die for.

The pizzas were very large and fresh. Interesting flavours too made fresh in their wood fire oven. Small place, so it is best to make a reservation. High end, not your typical pizza place.

I love thin-crust pizza, and Libretto's is seriously delicious. HOWEVER, I must say I enjoy their salads even more so. To share a pizza and have your own salad, a nice glass of water and a shared bottle of wine is pretty much perfection for a Friday night on the Danforth. Not to be missed ...

Went to the Danforth location over the summer. We were warned that prior to sitting down that the kitchen was running slightly behind, but we decided to stick around. Pizza was well priced with excellent flavour and actually came out quicker than expected. Found the server to be a pleasure to deal with despite it being obvious she was under... More
