We went to Pizza Libretto for its Napoleon pizza, casual atmosphere and great food. We sat on the patio which had seats quite far apart due to Covid protocols. We had a great meal. We ordered 2 pizzas, 2 appetizers and some wine. The pizzas - pepperoni & salsiccia were both amazing. For appetizers we chose polpette (aka meatballs) which were really good. The crushed tomato sauce with them was flavourful and delicious. For the second appetizer, we chose Insalata tomato calabrese which was slightly disappointing. The tomato itself was bland - it was a beefsteak tomato - but the arugula, cheese and basil were all good. Our server was great. The host was very welcoming and overall we had a great night.

I always love my experience here at Pizzeria Libretto! Their gluten free pizza crust I'd the best I've tried in toronto and their house made vegan cheese is the best. I've always had a good experience here, the stuff are lovely, the pizza is delicious and the patio is great!

Our servers were great: attentive and personal. As always, the pizzas are delicious and unique. The restaurant patio is lovely and spacious. There is some street noise but the patio itself is relatively quiet, with lots of space between tables. We were pleased to read in the paper that Pizzeria Libretto has increased their staff wages above inflation and is introducing a health/dental plan for staff - well done Pizzeria Libretto! This is a move toward all restaurants pay a living wage with benefits, and toward the elimination of the insecurity that tipping creates for staff. Thanks!

Amazing food with the exception of the salad which was under seasoned and contained the hard tomato centre. Service was very slow but understandable given the current covid situation. Special pea pizza (which we knew about from insta) was absolutely amazing.

Servers didn't seem so upbeat. The card machine is programmed to do tip on the total amount and not the subtotal. I usually leave 20-30 % tip, but this practice chafes me. By hitting the 18% it makes me look cheap but the dollar amount actually represented a 22% tip. No one should have to tip on tax.

Service was excellent with wonderful staff though it was clear that they were a bit short on people given the wait between courses. My go-to arugula salad had more salt than usual but pizza didn’t (and never does!) disappoint. We sat in the “tent” which was very sparsely decorated vs the rest of the patio area. No flowers, no fun signage etc. Would be nice to make it a little more fun for summer patio season.

Staff were very friendly, food arrived very quickly and it was very good, it was a very peaceful experience as there was no noise on the patio and I loved the flowers surrounding the patio as it added privacy

Unfortunately, the waiter didn’t seem to be paying attention. We wanted to share an appetizer and ordered two pizzas. Instead we received one pizza and I declined the salad because it came after our pizza. I didn’t realize we were only getting one pizza to share also.

We asked for a table outside the tent and were told you had to reserve it , we did a week I advance. We asked for a topping on a pizza to be on one half and we’re told they couldn’t do that, it’s a pizza place! Not impressed won’t be back lots of better more accommodating options out there.

Our server Josh was fantastic. The food was also very good. Looks like the place has been neglected inside though over the last few months.

Stuff laying around everywhere, and far from clean.

Amazing service, food and ambience. They were even able to accommodate a change in our party size within two hours of the reservation over the phone (thankfully the table we were originally scheduled for could seat our revised capacity).

Great food, kind and attentive servers, and the tables were spaced out for social distancing restrictions.

Will definitely be returning!
