If you live in Toronto you know that there are so many neighbourhoods with amazing restaurants and cafés. The Danforth area, also known as Toronto's Greektown, is one of them and in this lovely neighbourhood lies a gem called Pizzeria Libretto.
After a busy week of interning, working and getting back into routine after the long weekend, Adrian and I had a wonderful Saturday dining along Danforth. After passing Pizzeria Libretto several times in the past and reading great reviews, we decided to try it out. The hostess asked us if we had reservations in which I replied no but asked if we could sit outside since a couple had just left. She said okay and was off preparing our table.
We decided that we were going to share a meal so we began with the Beet Caprese Salad - Ontario heirloom beets, fiore di latte, basil, with white balsamic vinaigrette. This was delicious. Adrian and I really enjoyed it. I was not expecting the beet and fiore di latte - mozzarella - to go well together. But together it created great texture and flavour.
Looking around other people's tables I noticed that everyone had their own pizza. One pizza is good enough to fill one person. Adrian and I had two big slices each. I was stuffed (small stomach over here) and he obviously had room for more. So when dining here I suggest having a whole pizza to yourself if you can eat and share a pizza with another small-stomached person.

- Trendy and modern interior, Adrian said the dining area downstairs looked great but short .5 from perfect because the patio's a bit small.
- Hostess was quick to seat us but waitress took long to serve us. Our waitress checked on us once after our dishes were served then midway through we may have had a new server since our waitress did not come back to our table. Waiting for our bill took longer than it should have.
- Appetizer was delicious and our pizza was tasty and cooked perfectly. Adrian and I really enjoyed our meal.
If you're ever in the Danforth area or like pizza, make sure to check out Pizzeria Libretto. I suggest making reservations even if you're a party of two because this place is quite popular and a line up can form. They also have a location in the Ossington area. We plan on returning to try the Grande Piatto and another delicious Neapolitan pizza!
