Today when I went to Pizzeria Libretto on the Danforth, I was in for a real treat! Me and my family realized that they have a newly opened patio that we could eat at! We sat outside in the bright spring sunshine and we really enjoyed it. The tables were smooth and clean and the chairs were really comfortable – patio chairs can be kind of uncomfortable and these ones are great!
We all ordered our usuals, except for me – because the waiter told me about the special pizza, which I needed to order as soon as he told me what it was! Do you see my happiness in the picture above with my spelt crust pizza topped with caramelized onions, scrambled eggs, crumbled sausage (really, the primary element of this edible work of art!), cheese, chives and chili oil.
You can read my full reviews about Libretto Osssington from 2009 here and Libretto Danforth here, but what a bonus it is to eat amazing pizza on the Danforth outside on their patio! (also, they have umbrellas to give you shade too)
At Libretto their service is great. You have to get there early because it gets busy at around 6:00. [The famous pizza in the city is there] If you get there early, you’ll also be able to get a parking spot near the restaurant on Ossington.
It’s very spacious, but can be loud and you can sit at a very long table with other people. It’s called a communal table. They have crayons for kids because kids usually whine while waiting for their food (be aware, they still might whine). I don’t whine unless I’m really hungry. Their glass bottles of water are free and filled with their filtered tap water. When you finish it, just give it back to the waiter/waitress and they’ll give you a new full bottle. For the appetizer, I love the wild mushroom bruschette if they have it – we always ask. Their pizza is unreal! (spelt crusts – yum). I love the wild mushroom pizza also, but the one with arugula is really good too. The margarita has cheese and the marinara does not – they are both unreal. They can make them safe for my sister to eat (she has a nut allergy). They have nuts in some stuff, but they will make substitutes for the nuts. When we leave there is always a huge lineup, and lots of people, I wouldn’t want to wait in that line because I would whine about being super hungry!
