Good food but don't expect to hear
Too noisy for me but the food was good. Pizza special was excellent and the portions were fair.

We love it!
We love Libretto and have eaten there MANY times... The pizza is sooo delicious. I really like that you can substitute toppings and have a spelt crust if you like. We've gone with our family and friends. The service is excellent, friendly and efficient. I do find the wine a little expensive, but otherwise I have nothing negative to say.

Perfect date night :)
Libretto has become our neighborhood 'go-to'. The food, the service and te atmosphere is absolutely outstanding. Date nights are complete with a delicious selection of apps and pizza. Anything we try we are completely in love with. Staff are so friendly and own to earth, it makes you feel like you're family. Our libretto nights are our fav :) so in love!
GO AND EAT HERE!!!!!!

Great cocktails, perfect pizza
Fantastic - SO happy the Danforth location is now taking reservations. Was worried as my dining partner was 15 mins late and was worried they wouldn't seat me until she arrived but they seated me and got me a cocktail and it was lovely. The cocktails on offer are always so creative and interesting I had one with gin, campari, grapefruit, rosemary and smoke! The gnocchi fritti was decadent and the pizza was as always perfect.

Pizza Libretto Doesn't Disappoint
This was my 2nd time toPizza Libretto but 1st time on the Danforth...,.i think I preferred the Ossignton location just for the intense energy that place has plus the fix price Summerlicious was impressive ! However Danforth does take reservations so that was a definite PLUS ! The pizza is Delish !

Amazing Food! Amazing Service!
Jamie and his staff made our dining experience wonderful! This is our new go-to restaurant, whether we're in the mood for stopping in after work for a bite, or getting a group of friends together on a Saturday night. I love the spelt crust option!
Can't say enough about Libretto on the Danforth!! We have always been very pleased from start to finish.

Great spot! both the Danforth
Great spot! both the Danforth and Ossington locations are fantastic! Staff are very helpful with understanding the menu, which is sometimes necessary because it is mostly in Italian!

Pizza Libretto on the Danforth
Ordered the Piatto Grande (a shared sampling of cured meats, cheeses, small tastes and accompaniments) & the special pizza of the night for 2 people. We were stuffed. Could not finish the pizza. The piatta grande was visually captivating as it was served on a piece of wood. Love the fact I scored a reservation via Open Table so late in the afternoon for dinner in prime time.

Good atmosphere, great food
Ever since we had our baby we have come to pizza libretto; never once have I felt out of place bringing a baby in. This restaurant is for sure top on my list of places to go. I usually recommend this restaurant to people based on their service alone...the pizza is fantastic and and so are a number of their appetizers and the arrugala salad is great.

the food was good, our server;
the food was good, our server; he was excellent!
The big complaint I have is that when we asked for a bench on the side the host told us that it was for large groups only, we were 3 people. The entire time we were there she only sat dueces there.
My other comment would be that when paying by credit card and adding the automatic 17% it adds that to the after tax total, I don't like tipping on taxes personally.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Though busy, we didn't have any problems. Excellent food. Very good service. Lots of veggie options. Everyone in our group love their pizzas! Five different pizzas, all five star!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pizzeria Libretto Danforth is outta this world! Everything I ordered I absolutely loved and cannot wait to go back. They seated us right away and the service was impeccable.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best pizza ever
Words cannot describe the food and service at this restaurant. I would recommend this place to everyone I know. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Sylvia for the great service.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is hard to find authentic thin crust pizza done right, but here it is. The sauce was delicious and fresh, without being overwhelming. The crust was crispy, chewy, and flavourful; beautifully thin without falling apart. The cheese, well, it was just heaven. Also, try the calamari! So tender.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
More than just amazing pizza here - the gnocchi were to die for as well as the meatballs and the four different kinds of pizzas that we ordered!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, a little tight
I LOVE this place! I first came here with my friend and loved it so much, I couldn't stop talking about it! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we were so happy with our order. Even with reservations, we were seated too close to other tables (as in, when persons from either table had to leave, their bodies were grazing the side of our table), however, it was such an enjoyable experience and I will continue to dine here!

The pizza is amazing. It is
The pizza is amazing. It is a milk crust dough as far as I know so the style of pizza may be different from what some people are use to to. It is then fired in a wood oven. We love it and have never had a bad meal there. It is a busy place so you need to make reservations. If you want a quieter meal book a reservation earlier in the evening for around 6pm on a week day night. The place was very busy by 7pm.

libretto lives up to rep
Friday nights around 7:00 pm the Danforth is hoping. Lots of people , lots of good food, lots of choices. You cannot go wrong with Libretto rumored to serve the best pizza in town. Noisy, gregarious service interesting food preparation although the pizza choices are limited and lack the traditional offerings.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favourite place!
Once again, we had a fantastic evening! Thestaff is stellar; excellent service and super friendly, they make you feel so welcome.I absolutely love my time here! I had the Ontario proscuitto and my boyfriend had the caccitori salami pizza, every time each is absolutely delicious. You close you eyes to savour it! This place is a gem, never disappointed!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Libretto is a consistently amazing restaurant with the best pizza in the city; also, best meatballs in the city!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food idea
It's nice to see an original restaurant thay tries to do something different then the rest. Also love the idea of doing one thing very well. Good food. Friendly staff. I'm coming again

Pizza with style and sophistication
A fun evening out. We had the duck confit pizza on spelt crust, which was tasty. There could have been a bit more duck but otherwise we enjoyed this pizza. To start we shared the beef carpaccio and olives. Lovely olive mix and if you are having the beef, add the arugula. The two combine wonderfully.
The wine list was annotated but I found the staff the most helpful in selecting a couple of good glasses. The beer selection offers a simpler yet satisfying choice. As we had split a main, we elected to have dessert - home made donuts. Good and fun if you haven't had them before but i won't go back for those. I'd go back for the knowledgeable and excellent service, the energetic ambiance and the pleasure of pizza on a spelt crust....

Libretto for the win
Brought my friend here to meet my man-friend for the first time and it was the perfect spot for such a gathering. Good open space, friendly staff and good food. The buttermilk calamari was delicious. Would definitely come here again. Tell the Ossington location to start accepting reservations!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best pizzeria in town
Very consistent food quality. My go-to place for good pizza.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
So many dishes...so little room in my stomach. Pizza is authentic, and it's totally worth ordering a bunch of apps and a pizza to share. The meatballs are delightful.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Pizza in Toronto
It was my third time and they didn't disappoint. The food was amazing, they always customize your pizza the way you like it. Dessert is good too! Its great that they accept reservations!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, simple menu, easy service, some clever cocktails. Nothing is too outrageous in pricing, and consistent food makes it a reliable place to bring anyone for any occasion.

Pizza is excellent....some
Pizza is excellent....some of the appetizers are not up to standards, in particular the gnocchi and polenta need improvement.

Yum Yum Yum
Went with a friend and made a 9:30pm reservation asking for an earlier time if available. Restaurant called as we were on route that they had an earlier time.
Serving staff were very friendly, energetic, attentive and you could tell they had fun while working. The food and wine was great. House sparking wine, Beet Caprese Salad, Ontario sausage pizza, and vanilla affogato was well done and very tasty.
One small downside/complaint. My friend got the house made Tiramisu and the lady fingers were still hard to break. It was pretty clear they had not been soaked long enough. Had they been soft as they should, I would give food a 5.
Overall I was very impressed with Pizzeria Libretto and would take friends/family back again.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Pizza in Toronto hands down
Another thoroughly enjoyable dining experience at Pizza Libretto on the Danforth. I had a girls night out with my good friend who's favourite food is Italian, so needless to say I had to bring her to Libretto. We had an amazingly simple yet tasty salad and shared the Libretto pizza over some wine and topped it off with an espresso and gelato. I was super glad to get a table downstairs where it's quieter and we had an amazing time. Thank you! we will be back again soon.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious & friendly place!
After reading the reviews we decided Pizzeria Libretto was a must try. Very glad we made the trip. Firstly they were very accommodating when we changed our reservation at the last second from 2 to 4. It was a busy enough Wednesday night and even though our guests were a later than we thought, they never made us feel like they wanted us off the table. The food was really delicious. We tried the Buttermilk Fried Calamari to start then the Duck Confit, House-made Sausage and Nduja Sausage pizzas. All were delicious! If anything was 'off/odd' it was that our server was never the same person throughout the meal but everyone that took our orders was really pleasant and friendly. We will definitely stop by again.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can always count on Pizzeria
You can always count on Pizzeria Libretto for a delicious pizza and appetizers (the risotto balls are amazing). But Queen Margherita Pizza is my favourite pizza in the city. A little less pretentious than Libretto.

Great Birthday Dinner
I've been to the ossingtion location many times but decided to try out the danforth location because they take reservations and it was a special occasion. The food was amazing and the service was spot on.
I highly recommend this restaurant for any pizza lover - hands down the best pizza in Toronto.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent pizza with quality
Excellent pizza with quality ingredients and great service. Surprisingly kid friendly but reservations are essential.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, great service.
Libretto is a standout on the Danforth. Napoli "approved" pizza - great menu, friendly and knowledgable staff, high quality food.
My only slight problem is how tightly packed the tables are along the wall. We are literally packed in like sardines and it's hard to hear your dining companion when you are that close to your neighbour.
But I still love this place.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for lunch with a co-worker, the price fix lunch menu $15.00 Mon - Friday was great value for an incredible lunch.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great experience, as always, at Pizza Libretto. Took two friends from Ottawa and they loved it. Pizza perfection. Even had a dairy free sorbet so I could have dessert! Black plum and prosecco. Delish!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the Pizza
The atmosphere was very warm, welcoming with a touch of authentic Italian flare... I ordered the margarita pizza and it was very good... Would definitely go back

An engagement celebreation
My fiancee and I wanted to take a newly engaged couple out for dinner and this was the place we chose. We had not been before and heatd it was good. The level of service we received was unmatched by any other places we have been in years. They all worked together ensuring the guest was happy. From food and drink delivery to table maintenance. We could see the pizza being made in the back while the dough was hand tossed back and forth by the chefs.
It was a great experience even the manager was bussing and dropping off food at tables with a big smile on his face.

Best Danforth Go To Spot
We were so thrilled when Libretto moved onto the Danforth (we had been several times to their Ossington location) and into our neighbourhood. We've been many times to this new location as we live nearby. We takeout too!
The food is very good - the pizzas excellent (we are really fond of the mushroom and classic margherita) and the service always friendly and professional. We usually have their spelt dough and it is superior to other spelt/alternative ancient grain dough i have tried on other pizzas. The different salads and appetizers are always good too. It is such a joy to have a truly cool restaurant with great food for adults yet accessible to children.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Spectacular food, inspired service!
The Naples-certified pizzas are the highlight, but things like the salads and small plates are also outstanding. Great selection of wines as well. But what I always find here is that the service is always fantastic. Not pretentious, friendly, really knowledgeable and all the fantastic food is served up pretty quick. My only slight note would be about the noise level. But overall, this is becoming my favourite place.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great staff
The food and staff at Pizzaria Libretto was awesome. Our waitress was very helpful when we had questions on what to order. The appetizers were amazing as well. Try the Quinoa Salad, and the Polenta Balls with Marzcapone. MMmmmmm. The thin pizza crusts are delicious and any topping you get is wonderful. I had the veggie special. Amazing. Be sure to check it out.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was good but felt that it could have been more engaging. Found the waiters were more engaged with the other tables as opposed to ours (we were a minority race as opposed to the other tables). Pizza could have been cooked a little longer centre of the pizza was a tad soggy.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service & delicious food
Enjoyed dining here twice this week. Both times staff were knowledgeable and helpful in our selecting of the wine and attentive of our dietary needs. Spelt crust pizza never tasted so good. Only suggestion ; that they be a bit more generous on toppings for certain pizzas. More herbs on the herb and tomato pizza and more duck on the duck confit pizza and I'd be fully satisfied.
Try the beef carpaccio appetizer with arugula for a wonderful starter. We loved the unusual salad that included a crispy egg and brussel sprouts. Not something I would have tried at home.
Thanks for a fun and tasty evening
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Pizza in TO!
Pizzeria Libretto-Danforth has some of the best Neapolitan Pizze in TO! There were also a great selections of assaggini. We ordered the mascarpone polenta and the gnocchi fritti. Both were excellent. The arugula salad was great too. However, the flank steak spiducci, the only meat dish we ordered was a bit disappointing. The meat was quite tough. Overall, food was great and service was good.
