Nice place but patio was so so, seats got uncomfortable able some time, service was slow. Salad came after pizza. Patio is on the road. Would go back but indoor dining.

The food was delicious. It was so nice to be out and dining again. We obviously were on the patio so right next to the street but it wasn’t even that bad. The service was really great with each server ensuring we were doing okay throughout our time there. Food was delicious. They have different types of pizza styles as well. Genoa Salami might have been my favourite. The pepperoni we order came out in a heart shape. Was super cute. Honestly shout out to the chefs and servers along with Nicole. Overall a GREAT first experience. Will definitely come back!

Food was good. Had two pizza’s, ‘nduja and NY style pepperoni with a sour dough crust. Both were delicious.

Service was an issue. I give extra leniency given the Covid situation. Things are certainly more chaotic for restaurant staffs managing indoor and outdoor space amid the safety concerns. Understood, and the staff’s willingness to work in these circumstances is appreciated.

However, I had made a reservation for the patio. I checked in 5 minutes beforehand, and was left to wait in a lineup for over 40 minutes despite two tables (of about 7) remaining completely empty. I flagged down the host staff and passing waiters for assistance four times and my concerns ignored until I luckily flagged down the manager on the fifth attempt. He did seat us quickly thereafter. Understand errors happen, but you must acknowledge and appropriately escalate a customers concerns after repeat attempts for service.

Was disappointed by this. Certainly a hard time for restaurants, restaurants workers. But also for all of us that are trying to support these businesses in if need. We all want an efficient and safe experience for everyone.

I will come back. This is certainly a worthy restaurant. Just some constructive commentary.

The choice in music and how loud it was made it so hard to concentrate on my conversation. Old disco tracks on max volume makes no sense for this place.

Food was absolutely delicious. We usually get take out from here but decided to sit in and we also tried starters for the first time which was so worth it. Meatballs were so so tasty. Would recommend.

Our reservation was for outdoor seating. When we arrived, the restaurant said our reservation was for indoor. We were not comfortable eating indoors. They managed to square away seating for us outside, and when the folks who'd reserved the table came an hour later, they wanted to indoors anyway, so it all worked out! Always great food, and service from the Libretto team!

Went out with our two toddlers. Only patio available so was a bit uncomfortable because it was super hot and umbrella provided limited shade. But food was great as was service so can’t complain!

The apps we wanted was sold out, and the other ones that were available (gnocchi, garlic 'knots') were under seasoned and underwhelming. The pizza had been taken out the oven and at the window for a few minutes making it just warm by the time it arrived at our table. We have been coming here for years, but unfortunately we will not be returning.

I enjoyed the buffalo margarita pizza but my family found both it and the diavolo bland, lacking enough salt in the crust. Also, we were told they were out of the calamari appetizer at 8pm but we saw them serving it to another table later on around 9:30 which was disappointing. I also found the lack of tea on the dessert menu very trite. I have Italian heritage and in my family, even in Italy, we usually offer tea to finish a meal. Pecato. How hard is it to drop a tea bag in boiling water? I felt sorry for our server who had to offer disappointing info. Genuine Italian hospitality is about welcoming the guests not ceding to the picadillos of the host.

Everything was great, except the music was WAY too loud. And it was turned up even louder during the middle of the meal. We could barely hear each other at our table, and as soon as our turned his heel, he couldn’t hear us ask him to come back to the table for a minute. But the service was amazing, food was turned around so fast (which was great on a busy Friday night at dinnertime), and the food was extremely tasty.
