Service was great and the food was even better. They were attentive and the price was extremely reasonable would have eaten there our entire trip had we found it earlier.

This is the BEST tomato soup, paired with a half salad or pizzetta, it is a very reasonably priced meal. Do not bother with the Panzanella salad--it is a rip off, four bites of the half salad and you are done! The others are great, however.

As for their pizzas, the crust is not crispy near the middle at all, but I bet you could ask for them to leave it in longer and it might crisp up a bit. I usually stick with the soup/salad combo.

They also offer 9 oz wine, which is perfect for a meal. Wednesday is wine special nite, offering a half price bottle of their choice.

Amazing Neapolitan Pizzeria with lots to try. Loved the Cavoletti pizza with gorgonzola cheese, dates, walnuts, brussel sprouts and honey. The Famoso salad is brilliant!

We enjoyed a low key family birthday supper here this week, and confirmed our earlier impression. You have got to try the Mozzarella-prosciutto balls appetizer in tomato sauce, it is too good. Really. We want to buy the sauce by itself but that ain't possible, unfortunately. I had a Don Andreas Zaa, a white pizza with cilantro, chicken, chipotle and avocado, with drizzle of lime. Wonderful blend of flavours, different from same old. My wife had the Sicilian which mainly meat, and daughters had margarita (?) and something with mushrooms. They had white sangria and we had red, nice and refreshing. Service was OK, this is one of those new-fangled semi-full service places so it is different from conventional restos, and being lower end, doesn't attract the best of servers, but it's OK because of casual atmosphere and good food. I recommend, and will go back with a bag to scarf some tomato sauce.

This is new, and just off of the food court in Yorkdale. It's busy and noisy, but is much more sane than the general food court just outside.

The warm olives are a good start, and the pizza is wonderful. Thin crust, it melts in your mouth. Easily some of the best pizza I've had.

The Manager checked in on us during our meal, as well as on our way out. Service was wonderful.
