Tasty pizza! We had margarita, margarita with prosciutto and arugula and formagi. All of them were great.
Service is so pleasant.
Definitely will be back.
The food was not as good as it used to be. The server was not wearing his mask properly - his nose was exposed and it made us feel uncomfortable. Patio is nice though.
Well, it’s the pandemic, so going out feels a bit off and special at the same time. Food was fabulous and our server was terrific! We had a lovely, fresh salad and opted for gluten free pizzas. They were rich in flavour and truly delicious. Highly reliable establishment for a fun dinner date, whether with a significant other or friend. Of course I’m going back!
It was my first time out since Covid hit! Staff were following all precautions. Staff were wonderful. Food was amazing.
Great service and delicious food! Proper Covid protocols in place! Thank you!
Great food, great place. Staff was awesome. Hostess was kind and sociable. Server was effective and efficient!
Great food, super friendly staff! Covid guidelines were followed and we felt safe.
Staff are courteous and friendly.
Though I wrote to them that it was my daughter’s birthday, there was no mention or greetings during the dine-in. I just assumed because of Covid.
We had a wonderful meal! My husband and I haven’t been anywhere during Covid and finally got out for an anniversary trip. My husband is non-celiac gluten intolerant and had been looking at this place for quite a while. We decided to try it and it was fantastic! Our pizzas were great, our server (I can’t remember his name!) was so efficient and friendly! At the end of the meal we were gifted a Tiramisu because I had checked off it was an anniversary dinner. I didn’t know that option even did anything! Next time we are in the city we will definitely be back. Thank you!
Haven taken the whole side of the building and converted to patio, Libretto made the dining experience very pleasant. Giving space for physical distancing yet maintaining the great atmosphere. Food is great as always, and do always have the daily feature, as it is always a pleasant surprise. Also, don't be shy to ask what drinks are perfect for the evening, there are only a few choices, but they are all very very good.
The food and service were really great. However we were on the patio and it was dark, with no music or ambiance. Could've used some string lights and candles and music with more vegetation so it didn’t feel like a dark dingy alleyway
We have missed going to Pizza Libretto for the past few months. The service was very friendly and attentive. The pizzas were excellent as usual but would love to see the beef carpaccio back on the menu. Tried the Burrata which was great but small for the price point. Ambiance was nice on the University Ave. patio.
Great food and service. I was with my daughter, food arrived very quickly which suited us that day.
It was pretty quiet, only 3 tables on the patio but it took 20 mins for our waitress to take our order. She was nowhere to be seen after that. 30 mins into waiting we flagged down another waitress to ask about our appetizer and the status of our entree. We were given the appetizer 10 mins later and were told that the pizzas were only jotted into the system 25 mins ago and were still being made. After almost an hour of waiting, with now 2 tables outside and our waitress nowhere to be seen, we were getting frustrated. At that point, the other waitress mentioned that our waitress's shift ended and she would be taking over. It was completely unprofessional. This new waitress didn't seem to care, seemed like she was just thrown into it, brought us our pizza and the bill and left. After making a stink and saying to her that we felt neglected and mentioning that if we didn't follow up with her 3 times, we still wouldn't have gotten our food, the waitress took our appetizer off our bill as a courtesy. This was my first time at pizzeria libretto and while the food was good, the service and attention received at this restaurant, especially at a time where going out is a special occasion (due to COVID), was disappointing.
Rly good yaaaaay
Very good man
Great patio spot! First time out since the pandemic hit and it was great to see how controlled and efficient the service was. Food was quick and absolutely delicious. I will be back.
Such a nice restaurant on University. We were originally scheduled to be on the patio but because of some rain our reservations were easily moved inside to a booth. Our service was excellent, the food was excellent and dessert was, you guessed it: excellent.
All COVID-19 protocols were observed and the restaurant looked extraordinarily clean and sanitary. I can’t wait to go back and enjoy when we don’t always have to be wearing masks.
Libretto is always a fantastic experience. Definitely one of the very few spots of quality pizza napoletana.
The server was awesome, but the pizza arrived cold Which was weird because the restaurant was not busy.
Felt comfortable and noticed servers constantly sanitizing tables. All patio tables were spaced out for social distancing. Servers were really easy going and friendly - personable and polite. Decided to go try a new restaurant downtown and thought this place was perfect for a date night with delicious pizza. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend. Definitely going to return to if I ever want a chilled date night!
Amazing pizzas on a patio, very good service as well
A great evening outdoor dining experience. The patio feels open and airy yet secure due to its location tucked off Pearl St rather than University. Would definitely go back again.
Food is delicious, all the servers are so kind and nice!
The Pizzas were fantastic and appreciated the variety in pizza styles/regions. Attentive staff.
Love the prosciutto and arugula pizza, Delicious! And their chili oil is so good. Usually order the calamari to start but because of the limited menu we tried the risotto balls, which were amazing. One of my favourite places for pizza!
Delicious food, relaxing setting, wonderful drinks & good service
Always good, always fresh!! I would definitely recommend this place for pizza any day and time.
Everything was delicious. My wife ordered a Gluten Free Pizza base with a vegan cheese and it was as delicious as any regular pizza!!
House-made sausage was bomb!!
Both of us only had one quibble, the quantity of delicious meat toppings on both the pizzas weren’t worth the price!!
Amazing food as usual. Menu is a little smaller due to Covid, but tried the new NY pizza which was amazing ! Service and food and atmosphere on the patio was fantastic, felt very safe and servers were great ! Would be very willing to return !
Really nice dinner with clear Covid guidelines and adherence by staff. As usual pizza, salads, cocktails/wine were out of this world. Location is right in university so you have the presence of traffic noise the whole time, but is downtown Toronto, so it should be expected.
Ordered the pepperoni pizza off the menu and it came extremely fast, cooked well and covered in pepperonis! Also had a negroni with the meal which was good too!
Good reliable pizza. Well Spaced out patio. Excellent service
Very safe. Everyone was spaced out and following the rules. Food and service was great as usual.
The best pizza and service! Will be back for more true lover of PLG PLD PLU PLO and PLK :)
Wine list is extensive
Good prices, good service and good food. What’s not to like? Libretto is usually pretty consistent. Only downside, no teas for tea drinker and I always want a tea with my dessert. Next time I will bring my own tea bag I guess.
They cancelled my reservation but didn’t even tell me!!!! Unprofessional!
Patio was clean, spacious and staff was extremely understanding and accommodating. Food was delicious as usual. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice evening out in the city!
Extremely slow service. Over an hour for 4 pizzas to come out. Not a good choice for lunch hour.
