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!

“Just as good as Mamma's!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Travelled to Toronto for medical reasons with my parents who are Italian immigrants. Being great cooks my parents are very particular when eating out. Well this place was a Godsend!! The food, service and ambiance was second to none. We felt like we were in my mom's kitchen...their minestone is absolutely the best as was everything else we ate...from pizza, focaccia, panini and croissants to their espresso.
I highly recommend this truly Italian eatery to all who visit Toronto.
Veramente buonissima!!!

“Amazing pizza”

Don't let this gelato store fool you! They have one of the best REAL pizzas that I have ever found in downtown Toronto. You won't be disappointed. I have been there many times and will go back again.

First off, the warm and inviting ambiance is just right. Then there is the pizza and espresso. to die for. Have not had the Gelato yet, but will do the second time around. The service and friendliness of the staff was making me feel like i was home. overall great experience.
