    This is the place to go in Bloor West Village for truly outstanding pizza. A bit loud, and a very limited wine list, but the wines are well-priced and the two I have had there were of high quality. But the pizza...I dream about that pizza. Be warned that if they bring you the bread (I think they do this only if you have to wait a long time for the pizza) it is also spectacular, but you will fill up on it quickly. Reservations are a must - it's very popular, so it you just show up, you'll have a long wait.

    Pizza is great. I think the menu had changed since we had last been and I missed some of the former topping combos. However, you can customize so no prob. I hate to say it but the mushroom salad would be so great if the mushrooms were breaded and roasted. Our server Justin was super - one of the best we've come across. Truly delightful.

    Open style kitchen showcasing the authentic wood fire oven and high ceilings give this place a casual, comfortable feel. They specialize in pizza and have a nice selection of Italian starters and sharing plates. The salumi and fromagi plate was a favorite with something for everyone to enjoy. Calamari was so lightly breaded and full of flavour. Each pizza is unique. Don't plan on customizing your own, they are delicious the way they come, although it took a little while to decide on the right one. Our server, Wayne was excellent and answered all of our questions without skipping a beat!

    We sat down, asked to change tables after being hit by plastic swords by those kids only a parent could love. Then we had to listen to a 2 year old's screaming tantrum while the indulgent parents ignored it. Of course, this was how I wanted to spend my Friday evening. We couldn't hear ourselves talk over the screams of the kids. We lasted 15 minutes and left to have a lovely dinner a few doors down at the Mad Mexican. Don't go here unless you're prepared for this. This is the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in. Been here before. Always loud but add those screechy kids voices and it's impossible

    There are many restaurants doing wood oven pizza these days, but Queen Margherita Pizza puts together combinations and unusual ingredients that just seem to rock the palate. I have tried several now and have really enjoyed each one. We start by sharing an appetizer, because the pizzas are just so wonderful we did not want to share....other than a bite or two. Highly recommend.

    We've been to Q.M. Several times but this time the food was way too salty, the noise level too loud and the service too slow. Unusual but it really was felt by our whole party of four, not just me. Will we go back? Probably because it may have just been a one time thing. We will see....

    This is a buzzy, busy, noisy, fun, wood fired pizza place with great pizzas with really distinctive, bold ingredient choices. Appetizers are great. For two I recommend a couple of appetizers and split a single pizza. Drinkable house wines. Small, sensible wine list.

    The pizzas and salads were ordered were great. You could tell that the mozzarella was fresh. They could have been a bit more generous with the fresh basil on one of the pizzas ordered. The noise level is terrible because of the awful acoustics (this used to be a bank with high ceilings). Without anything to absorb the sound it is difficult to carry on a conversation. Consequently everyone is yelling at each other trying to be heard and compounding the problem. Not a pleasurable dining experience.

    I had booked reservations for my family. When we got there, i was told there was no table available. We waited 30 mins for a table to clear up. We ordered 2 margherita pizzas plus two pieces of bread. The pizza was so-so, nothing special - not satisfying at all.. the bread was way two expensive for what it was, and again nothing special. After our meal, i asked the waiter for a dessert menu, and he said he knows it off the top of his head. He gives us three items, we choose the last one. A tiny (as we found out later) slice of chocolate cake (that tasted like frozen mousse) with a tiny scoop of ice cream and some strawberries. The dessert was like everything else, so-so. And how much was the dessert? $12!!!! Just as much as the pizza!

    The pizza here is very good, better than I had expected. The service was fast and as the time to make the pizza. The pizza was not too heavy so eating the whole pizza on your own doesn't make you feel bloated. I recommend it and will go there again.

    This is our first time at the Jane location. We used to go to the original location in Leslieville quite often but have not been in a while. Chose the Jane location as it was closer for the friend we were meeting for dinner. No real ambiance to the restaurant. Kind of a cold white room. The Leslieville location is much more welcoming. Our server was fantastic though. Very friendly and helpful. Good balance of checking in and taking care of us. He was just so pleasant. Did not get his name though. Menu has changed since we have been to QMP. And really not for the better. Prefer the original menu and pizza offerings. Crust seems different here and I have always loved the crust at Leslieville. I know that sounds weird but we do!

    Went there for QMP for our anniversary. The food was good and the fixed price menu was worthwhile but the meal did not stand out as a great meal. It didn't make me want to come back. If you want good wood burning oven pizza and don't want to make the journey to Pizzeria Libretto, this is a fine alternative but it is definitely not as good as Pizzeria Libretto. We always crave Pizzeria Libretto

    We loved the food but we find it takes quite some time to get your pizza, especially if you order appetizers. Even though pizzas only take 90 secs to cook, the takeout business is so strong, your order can take some time to make it to the line. Once it comes though, great flavours on the pizza.

    As we were an early arrival, the reservation was not a problem, and my son and I enjoyed the dinner quite well - 8 year old boy hoovered back his pizza blanco (not technically, but I can't remember the name). T'was good for him (waitress advised that he would not likely enjoy the chili pepper, which was a good and appreciated heads-up). I enjoyed my namesake Margherita, and we were comforted by the pace and hospitality. Nice place, which I'll return to, and would recommend to all and sundry. Kudos.

    Thank you to our server Wayne for making my partner's birthday dinner a pleasant one. He added a personal touch in addition of recommending fine vegetarian pizza options that paired beautifully with a lovely Nebbiolo. Being quite familiar with your Queen East location we look forward to visiting Queen Margherita on Jane again soon.

    Amongst the best pizzas in Toronto are served here. If you've got four people going who are all willing to try a number of them, then order four different pizzas and asked that they be served one at a time. That way each of you get each one hot from the oven, and you'll get the respect of the chef who will know you know how to eat pizza! I have been three times now to this location, and having this place within walking distance is great.

  • Italian pizza and tapas
    Sarahbarah
    Dined on 5/31/2014
    QMP executes their take on Neapolitan pizza and Italian tapas well. The food is delicious, with nostalgic items on the menu like mortadella and fennel taking me back to my childhood days. Prices are a bit high for my liking, for menu items other than pizza. Atmosphere is very loud, and kid-friendly. The server I had was great, and knew the menu very well. I would definitely return again. QMP is most worth visiting if you are going to have pizza - other menu items are equally as delicious as the pizza, just not as worth the price. $12 for an appetizer-sized portion of risotto is too much. Add more risotto and the dish could easily be changed to $17 main, especially since the ingredients (fennel and pancetta) are not expensive at all.

    We went mid-week to Queen Margherita Pizza for the first time. The server was excellent and asked if we were local, first-time, etc. She was very helpful in going through the menu. We ordered appetizers, a pizza and an entre. One appetizer was not prepared correctly. When we pointed it out, the server immediately took the appetizer off the bill and through in another appetizer. Later she came back was very apologetic that they had run out of the entre. She then provided us with a free second pizza. The owner then came over and also apologized and offered us the entre we had ordered for free the next time we returned. He also provided us with free after dinner drinks. The night wasn't perfect but they bent over backwards to please us.

    Expected so much more. Pizzas are good, dough is authentic, but NOT "Neapolitan" exceptional. 7 1/2out of 10. Need a little more sauce, and flavour. Waiter suggests, sure...choose any toppings, make it your way, but each topping is $2-$4. Average single serving pizza our family had was $18. A bit pricey. Calamari main dish, very tender, but had no flavour and too many chickpeas. Barely warm. 7 out of 10. $17 Our bill for 5, without any drinks was over $100. Still looking for that great local pizza place...
