We stopped in and were pleasantly surprised. One of few places we passed that was open on Easter Monday, which is apparently a holiday in Canada. There was a 30 min wait, so we went to the CN Tower and came back. We were not disappointed. The pizza is amazing - which is saying a lot. My husband and I disagree on pizza but we both loved this. We got a bacon, goat cheese, & broccoli w tomato pesto sauce for an appetizer and our son had a kids pizza (cheese) as his meal. One of us had a pepperoni calzone that was amazing -with sauce on the side for dipping - and the other a chicken panini, which was also good. If you get the panini, know that the chicken is cold and thinly sliced (not a solid chicken breast). Still good, but not clear from the menu; had I known that, I might have ordered differently as I was in the mood for hot food. Pesto was great, as were the balsamic onions. The table next to us had mac & cheese balls and ravioli, which looked equally amazing. Service was excellent (don't let the sports bar look fool you) and attentive. Overall, a good spot for reasonable priced meal and excellent pizza!

Went for lunch at Hey Lucy on the 2nd day of an investment course I took, with a friend of mine. Decided to go with a pizza hoping for something better than typical franchise pizza. The restaurant delivered ! What I got was a filling tasty well topped pie fresh from the wood oven. I also liked the decor in the establishment, exposed brick, very hip. Only downside is that the restaurant is quite narrow so the seating area is somewhat cramped.

We went here before second city. My pasta lover had the macaroni and cheese entree. He loved it but it was a smaller portion size than expected. My meat lover got the calzone with pepperoni and it was excellent. My husband got the chicken and avocado pizza. I think he was expecting to see the avocado. He is the spicy food lover and he thought it was bland. I got the goat cheese and pear salad with spicy peacans. And chicken. The salad was excellent and filling. I didn't finish it.
Overall, the fast and friendly service really made it a fun place. Very energetic feel to it. We were in and out very quickly.

This was a grey surprise, I was just looking for a place to have late lunch with the kids, and found this one on trip advisor... Many options and all of them were good!
