Pizzeria Libretto is a lively Toronto neighbourhood restaurant offering Real Neapolitan Pizza certified by the VPN.<br />Atmosphere? Bright, busy, fun, loud and homey. Everyone is welcome: singles & couples, young and old, families, and those going on their very first date. No dress code—come as you are, or however you want to be.<br />Libretto aims to be loyal to what real pizza is, invented in Naples using local natural ingredients, cooked in a wood fired oven at extremely high heat to achieve a charred, blistered crust. We use San Marzano tomatoes and Fiore di Latte Mozzarella, brought in fresh daily. Our dough is made with naturally leavened Italian Caputo dopio zero flour. Our pizza bakes in less than 90 seconds in our 900 degree wood burning oven, hand built for us by a 3rd generation pizza oven maker in Naples. Simple, Honest, and Natural.<br /><br />—Chef Rocco Agostino & Max Rimaldi<br /><br /><br />

At La Madia, two pleasures - great food and distinctive, delicious wines - come together. La Madia is an urban restaurant that upholds Italian tradition. Every day, our chefs make our pizza dough and fresh pasta from scratch from little more than flour, water, and salt.<br />The menu is designed for sharing, with flavor-packed, wood-fired pizzas that change seasonally, inventive salads, and savory pasta dishes. Desserts are all made on the premises, in keeping with what's available in the market.The wine list is a wine lover's dream, with more than 75 wines by the glass and hundreds of bottles. And every week, we feature two of our favorite wines for just $6 per glass. In addition to wine and more than 25 beers, La Madia offers innovative cocktails, many of which are made from spirits infused in-house.

We are primarily a walk in neighbourhood restaurant, however we do set aside some seating for online reservations for our first lunch seating at 12:00 noon and our first dinner seating at 6:00 PM only.<br /><br><br />Former auto repair garage meets industrial enoteca. Your neighborhood place featuring casual Southern Italian food, friendly people, a Tuscan grill, wine on tap! Our owner"s passion for unique dining experiences can be seen in every element of Gusto 101 – from the memorable food and wine to the cozy, yes cozy, industrial décor. Our chef, Daniel Mezzolo, has been cooking up a storm all over Italy, the Caribbean and even rural Ontario. We think he’s fun to watch in action, so we added a handful of seats next to the open kitchen. <br /><br><br />
