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.

This was my boyfriend, and my first time ever going to this restaurant, and I was beyond impressed. The pizza dough, was so light and fresh. It was a bit thicker than other pizza's in an amazing way.

I asked them to surprise me Wednesday afternoon with a new drink. They spun up a delicious London fog to follow my pizza

Still one of my go-to places. This restaurant is a gem. Great location. The gelato is the best in the city. The sandwiches are unbelievable. The coffee is fantastic. If you haven't been yet, it should definitely be on your list.

Very helpful staff and fine pizza, panini, salads, and coffees. The margarita pizza (always a good test) is delicious. With a diverse set of places to sit, from a window on Jarvis, to tables within, it is a cosy and lively place.

These guys know what they're doing when it comes to gelato. It is hands down my absolute favourite thing here and I believe it's the best gelato in the city.

Description
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!

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.
