Our food is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. The menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience.

Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.

Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.

                                                              I was expecting more from this restaurant, but it is your basic trattoria kind of place. it is nice and interesting looking. The washroom was filthy however and only 2 stalls. It might have been the moment, maybe an inconsiderate patron left it that way before I used it, because it didn't look uncared for. The menu was very small, not much to choose. We ordered the pizza, and it wasn't bad, it was nice actually. I am on a lookout for a good restaurant, and this one was not it. But it could be a great place for a quick pizza dinner, if needs be. Considering the location, the menu fits right in, I guess investing more wouldn't make much sense business wise. Anyways - give it a shot, you might like it, it might be just what you like and want.

                                                              My boyfriend and I don’t exactly live close to this location but we find ourselves driving over to this location almost WEEKLY for their phenomenal service and dishes. FOOD: the cheeseburger, fries, all pizzas and the pasta are all a 10/10 You can really taste the high-quality products used at The Good Son We started off only ordering the cheeseburger and fries and it’s consistently been a 10/10 for the last 3 years I’ve been ordering this The mushroom pappardelle is the best ever had and the pizzas are unreal, my favourite is the Natalina! DRINKS: The drinks are the best I’ve ever had- I use to do a lot of restaurant/ bar hopping with my friends downtown Toronto and none of the cocktails match up to the ones made here, flavourful and strong - Josh and Arian make the best drinks SERVICE: just as great as the food- one of the main reasons we come back - Jo, Josh, and Arian and the rest of the staff provide 5 star service, friendly, attentive, knowledgable, and over all phenomenal Overall atmosphere: The decor layout and architecture are impressive, very trendy, yet cozy at the same time- you can come here to celebrate a special occasion or spend a casual Friday date night here - again 10/10 would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everybody looking for a good time, good food, and good service

                                                              The restaurant Good Son had great ambiance and the old vibe is really nice. It is a quiet and the servers were on point and were there at all time when needed. Also the food was very good and well prepared and there was not a single piece of food missed. Definitely a place I would go back to.

                                                              Our menu is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. With a focus on local and seasonal organic produce, hormone free and free range proteins, the menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience. The heart of our kitchen bolsters a wood-fired oven & wood-fired grill that has been imported all the way from Mam Forni, Italy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavor imparted on the food is exceptional and unique
