When I am in the downtown core Pizzeria Libretto University is my go to restaurant. I know what to expect and have never been disappointed.

Servers are always pleasant and this visit was no different. Was there at noon with a friend and we had our food within 15 mins. tops from when we placed our order.

Looking forward to my next visit to Pizzeria Libretto University!

Good for a quick decent meal, but the quality and taste that made Libretto well known isn't there.

Libretto is our favorite pizza restaurant and the University location, in our opinion, the best - Thursday night was no exception. Excellent food and service to celebrate a special occasion.

I have never had a bad experience at any Libretto location! My coworker and I came in for a quick lunch, and it was perfect. Our server was pleasant, there was lots of chatter, but it was still a nice lively lunch spot. Our food came out quickly, and of course, it was extremely delicious! Libretto has been, and I don't doubt always will be, one of my favourites!

We had a great meal! The pizza was to die for. The calamari came to the table a little cold. And we were told our bread was hot out of the oven and it was cold. Service was a little slow but the company and chill atmosphere made it all better. All in all, a fantastic place to dine if you’re looking for a great pizza dinner.

Location is understaffed so the service is very slow. We waited a long time to place our order, and it was difficult to get the waitress' attention to ask for extra chilies. We couldn't find anyone afterwards to ask for the bill. Salad wasn't served with any dressing.

I am Italian and moved here a few years ago, and I might not go back.
I ordered a bufala, my mouth was watering... then at my surprise I saw the pizza all covered with these shavings. I had to ask what indeed they were, and as I surprise they answered that it was grana padano. Now I could've accepted a few shaving, but the pizza was covered entirely barely able to see even the tomato underneath!!! Needless to say that the pizza tasted like grana padano (which is similar to parmigiano cheese),.... so definitely ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to a true pizza bufala....
VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Pizzeria Libretto and would go back. The service was a bit slow (our salads came before our drinks and we didn't order them at the same time). We also had 3+ people serving our table, which did not add to the overall experience.

Unfortunately, every time I'm here for lunch the service gets slower and slower. Today's visit was nearly 2 hours. In any event, the servers are pleasant and the food is great. More efficient timing could really improve the overall experience.

Fantastic pizza (ndouja sausage is my favourite, just the right amount of heat, and if you want more there is always the chili oil you can drizzle on top), and oh - that bread - sublime!

The food is excellent but I have found the lunch service to be consistently quite slow. The server was apologetic but given that this restaurant caters to a business lunch crowd, I really feel that they need to tighten up their lunch service efficiency.

Kitchen was not on point. Normally we can have lunch in just over an hour. This time it took 2 hours and that was with taking dessert to go. When you work in a busy office and only can only allocate so much time for lunch, this puts undo stress on our experience, therefore it was not enjoyable.

Highly recommend the mixed olives.
Their Gluten Free pizza crust is great. It has actual flavor and a proper texture. Our server was conscious and knowledgeable about food options around my dietary needs. We will be back.

Our server was very good but I found the busser a little overenthusiastic. For example, I'd just finished sipping my drink which is why my cutlery was down for under 60 seconds and she came by asking to clear it. No, please, read the cues. Food was fine.

The food was delicious and the prix fixe was a great deal. I found the service unfriendly and we weren’t told that there were no free refills. Servers should not offer more soda/juice without telling the patron that there are no free refills. This dishonesty ruined the experience for me
