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!

My boyfriend and I were out for the night and decided to grab some dessert. This place did not disappoint. It wasn't packed, and the people were extremely friendly and patient while we looked over the choices. The gelato was top notch, and the prices were reasonable and comparable.

Definitely worth a visit, I am going to make a trip to try the pizza's next time.

I live here in the historic St. Lawrence Market district and when G for Gelato opened, I was so excited to have something like this my neighborhood. I come here every day.

If you're headed to the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday morning, this is a great place to stop for your coffee - just a block north of the Market building.

Maybe I'll see you there! :)

who new the menu was more than the "best gelato" in every flavour imaginable. Take the 2 block stroll up Jarvis next time you are visiting the St Lawrence Market and you will not be disappointed! Try the fresh made gelato first or order up a fresh thin crust pizza and save the gelato for dessert. Either way, your taste buds will thank you!

They do have the amazing gelato during the winter! Couldn't resist... I also had breakfast there and didn't eat all day.

G for Gelato is a true gem in Toronto. They not only have the best Gelato this side of the pond, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better Neopolitan style pizza in Toronto. The also serve some of the best coffee in the city. Overall, this is a truely well run establishment with top notch service, consistent high quality products.

Highly recommend paying a visit to G and finiding out for your self why this is rated as one of the top restaurant/cafés in Toronto. Well worth it!
