Pizza Libretto does very good traditional style pizza in a casual setting. You won't find your large pepperoni pizza here if that's what you are looking for, rather pizza with toppings like truffle paste, berkshire ham, egg, pear, duck confit and Stracciatella. They also do some pretty nice appetizers. The meatballs are especially good. There is a small wine list too.

The pizzas are quite big but are very thin based so you can easily manage one to yourself!

Overrated and over priced. Nothing interesting about this pizza at all. Thin papery crust. Tomato sauce is average. Hardly any cheese. Everything was overpriced. Don't see the attraction at all. Not even a really nice room either.

Not the typical pizza, both in crust and ingredients. But excellent overall. Long wait with no reservations at the Ossington location, but the Danforth location takes reservations. Ossignton works better to combine with a night at the bars.

So glad there is the Danforth location now as it is up the street from me.
Fast and friendly service. It's a busy place and the staff are constantly going.
I been to both locations and had a great time at both. The last 2 times I've had the Nduja Pizza. Nice and spicy and a must try. Pepperoni was on special and that is great too.
Pear Salad is nice. We always get a few things and share. The Danforth location had warm bread to start with and it was like warm cake so good with the Olive Oil and Balsamic...mmmmm
Staff are always attentive and very friendly. Always have a good time.
No reservations at Ossington but Danforth does take them and is recommended.

I guess I'm just weird when it comes to pizza. Whenever someone raves about an "authentic" pizza place, I tend to find that they mean the pizza is thin crust, often soggy, with few toppings. Just, you know, average pizza. But because it doesn't have a chain's name above the door, it must be good because it's, well, more "authentic" than Pizza Hut.

What this place has is average pizza. Not garbage, but not great, either. Definitely overrated.

The meatballs, however, are quite good. Try those.
