Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always good at Queen Margherita'a Pizza but, this time there was too much char on the crust. I understand the crust blackening on the crust as part of the wood burning experience...but not when you have to cut away a good part of the pizza to avoid the burned taste. I have eaten their before and will go again...but from now on will ask that they be careful not to burn the crust."

  • "No bells and whistles here, it's rustic ambience matches the authenticity of the food. Staff and meal was amazing."

  • "Absolutely the best pizza i've ever eaten in Toronto. (Hope I spelled the name of my fave pizza correctly in the review title!!) The prix fix for lunch is a bargain - $22 for 2 courses or $29 for 3. Yum yum :) Their had been some slight changes to the menu since I was in last and my usual fave (Giovanni - arugula, proscuitto) wasn't on the menu but the chef made it for me. Can't get better than that!"

  • "This place is fantastic. I went here for my birthday on Friday and they were super laid back about my modifying the reservation a couple of times. Chris kindly took care of us and all the other staff were great. The caprese salad's were fresh, the pizza's were gorgeous, as was the vino. Definitely coming back."

  • "Underwhelmed........have tried many times to get a table, and then was finally successful. Pizza was good, ingredients seemed fresh, but crust was soggy. The service was great and so was the waiter. Not sure if I'll return."

  • "The menu has been paired down so much that they're isn't enough choice. They used to have the the best dessert (Nutella mousse) and now it's going. Please add some of the variety back into you menu."

  • "Used to be a favourite despite the noise level. This time grumpy server from the start, no more changing table d'hôte with interesting appetizers and desserts, much too large ordinary cesar salad for first course, were not warned that our favourite pizza was now very spicy (same name with a "2" is not enough warning), not offered coffee with dessert. Will have to find a new favourite."

  • "Dined there for the first time with friends. It was thier recommendation. The food was very good and the service was very nice. I would certainly return and recommend it to my friends. Added bonus: I always appreciate not having to go to a damp, musty smelling basement to use the restroom."

  • "We've now been to Queen Margherita for dinner on Mother's Day and Father's Day. We booked a bit later (around 9pm) with our 4 month old baby (who was asleep in his carseat) and it was perfect night out for some tasty food. The staff are excellent and very accommodating. It made for a lovely evening out on a special occasion to celebrate our first Fathers Day."

  • "Been wanting to check this place out for a few years. Went with a party of 5 at 6:00 P.M. and was shocked to initially see how small the restaurant was. I was relieved to see there was an additional section where they have the pizza coming out of the stone oven with a large area comfortable for larger groups with a nice view out the restaurant. Ordered the prix-fixe salad with the grilled octopus - first time, I'd definitely have it again. Pizzas ordered: 1) The rocco - loved the cheese, but it's an acquired taste. 2)Alla Campagnolo - Simple, tasty but worth trying others. 3) La Scala - my personal favourite. Sweet with a small kick. 4) Calabrese - Meat dominant flavoured but definite contender for repeat pizza"

  • "This restaurant is always great. The food is always a hit. The prix fixe menu is well worth it with inventive salads and desserts that change regularly to compliment the pizzas they have on the permanent menu."

  • "Having been at Queen M. two weekends in a row, I noted that the basic tomato sauce on the individual pizzas is somewhat bland and sloppily applied. Wood fired crust, gourmet toppings, grilled vegetables, dessert, wine, etc. were amazing, so the sauce (which reminded me somewhat of Campbell's Tomato Soup in condensed form) was disappointing. I will go for blanco next time. Everything else at the restaurant was amazing, especially on Mother's Day, when the staff treated us (two middle aged moms sans children) with impeccable courtesy and skill."

  • "Amazing as always. Can get very loud at times and conversation can be difficult. Probably because of the high exposed ceilings. "

  • "We have been to Queen Margherita before and the second time did not let us down! Great service - very attentive and friendly waitstaff. Great with the kids. Food was very good - very good pizza selection and quality. Limited appetizers, but there is something for everyone. Good drinks. Will be back."

  • "We keep returning time and time again, as this is the best and most authentic "pizza napoletana" in Toronto. Been to the other places and this one for the dough is the closest and absolute winner. The prix-fixe at Leslieville is such a hot deal, that you can't pass it up. Fantastic deal, pizza, cocktails and atmosphere. It's a fun place, crowded and everyone's eating the pizza with such gusto! Love it!"

  • "We had never heard of this place until my husband and I saw it on a random TV show. We liked the look of the restaurant and the one pizza we saw briefly on the screen looked very appetizing. We are so glad we went to QMP, the food was amazing. The pizza full of fresh ingredients and the tiramisu was to die for. In general the service was fantastic and the attention from our waitress was impeccable. As a New Yorker, finding good pizza is always a challenge, but QMP delivered and I'm happy to say we'll be going back very soon and recommending to all our friends. "

  • "We consider ourselves very lucky to have a great place like QMP in the Jane and Annette area which we frequent many times and have not been disappointed ever. We decided to venture from there to the Leslieville QMP to "test it out". We had a family night with our young children and just like Jane and Annette, the food was amazing, the service was excellent, and the place while different than Annette was just as cool - great for the family and great for a date night. In fact, by being different it made it special. The price was reasonable - you get waht you pay for and we got quality. Now we have 2 great QMPs to choose from - luck us. "

  • "We really enjoyed our evening at the restaurant; we had friends visiting from Brooklyn, NY, and they were impressed with the ambience and food. We had 4 kids with us from age 5 to 10 and it was nice to have an evening at a kid friendly restaurant with a good vibe. We will definitely come again. "

  • "I have been to QMP before, and had excellent food. This time, though, the pizza dough was simultaneously black on the bottom and still raw underneath the toppings. The manager was summoned, and argued with us that that was the way the pizza is meant to be cooked. The service otherwise was good, and I really want QMP to succeed, so will try again. But this particular experience was terrible."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Basically. A pizza restaurant; salads would be a good addition as would desserts. They are only available with the table d'hote."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I have been going to QMP for the last year and I have never been disappointed. The prix-fixe is a bargain at $29, including a choice of appetizer, choice of pizza, and desert. I had a terrific beet salad, a carpe se pizza, and the tiramisu. The pizzas never have too many ingredients, which means you can enjoy the fantastic sauce and ingredients . The crust is thin, but nicely chewy. No soggy crust here. I can't recommend QMP highly enough for attentive, friendly service, fantastic food, and a great value. My friend and I waddled out completely satisfied. ."

  • "Listed as a top pizza restaurant in Toronto. We'll deserved. As close to Naples style pizza as I have come outside of Italy. Price fixe of @ $30 included a choice of interesting salads and deserts. I had a shrimp dish that was oily and delicious. Among the desert choices, I had a dark chocolate tarte with a lemon sauce -- really wonderful compliment to the anchovie pizza. I would say this is more of a restaurant than a NY style pizza place. Building looked like a converted 19th century small shoe factory. Charming and simple and all very functional."

  • "A fun restaurant for the whole family. Our experience was terrific. Great pizza, great service and very accommodating as we had a two year old child with us. I have recommended the place to many people now. Adding a few more items to the menu wouldn't hurt."

  • "A long time friend and foodie had recommended Queen Margherita pizza as the best pizza in Town. I have savoured great pizza in Toronto so i was a little skeptical. But, in fact the pizza was fabulous. Great crust, great toppings, great value for authentic Neapolitan Pizza! I only wish it was open 5 days a week for lunch!"

  • "I love the daily inventiveness of the pizzas. The food, service and space are a great package, along with the prix fix option. For eating with very young kids, it's good to come around 5pm. There will almost surely be other families so no need to feel anxious."

  • "The food at Queen Margherita is excellent and exactly what it is supposed to be. The desserts are boring and just average and not on the same scale as the mains."

  • "First time at Queen Margherita Pizza. Boyfriend and I sat upstairs near the kitchen where you could see the cooks making your pizza which was nice. The tables however are very close to one anther so much so you could hear the other couples conversation. Other than that the pizza was delicious and reasonable priced. Staff was attentive and friendly."

  • "Was looking forward to a Valentine dinner at Queen Margharita, and had reserved a table in advance. The food was nothing to rave about. The caesar salad was bitter, and our pizzas were burnt. Dessert was very good, and the only part of meal that was enjoyable. Restaurant was very cold, and we rushed our meal just so we could leave quickly."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We ordered 2 different pizzas and salads. The toppings covered 2/3 of each pizza leaving a thick uncovered crust around the pizza. The salads were ridiculously small in view of the $12. price tag. Overall the food was good but provided poor value for money. There are a number of other Neapolitan pizzerias that provide better pizzas in Toronto. QMP seems to have lost its edge."

  • "We had friends coming into the city and they wanted to get this restaurant. The menu online boasts a variety of appetizers, salads and pizzas. Once there we were seated and handed menus offering a variety of pizzas but nothing else. A chalk board on the wall offered a fixed menu. Those were te only options. No apps, no salads. And an overwhelming selection of FOUR wines to choose from. I'm not usually one to write reviews but when the pizza came out burnt I felt it necessary. I know that with wood ovens thins will be darker, but my husbands dinner was blackened. Dessert was fabulous I'll give them that, and the decor is industrial chic which is cute. All in all , with all the variety in the neighbourhood, we won't be back."
