Defina Wood Fired
We had our wedding reception here on August 11 and had a fantastic time. From the amazing starters (delicious meatballs, mussels, and fish cakes), incredible pizza, and lovely dessert, everything was just as we'd hoped it would be. Our server (whose name I don't remember sadly) was very helpful and kept our wine glasses full! Overall a wonderful experience. Thanks so much for taking good care of us!
From the initial greeting at the door to the servers everyone was sincerely gracious and charming---and prompt. Our pizzas were amazing with their variety of flavours, freshness and quality of ingredients.
My friend and I agreed that our pizzas were some of the very best that we have ever enjoyed.
It is pleasant to know of this fine eatery that serves delicious food at reasonable prices with cheerful
and excellent service!
Defina never ceases to impress. Was a but hesitant feeling like how could the new location be as good as the first.. wow its even better! Our triple tomato and maximo pizzas were delicious. The napoletan vs Roma crust options were great as well. Calamari was delicious. Loved it!
As usual (this was my third visit, bringing guests on their first visit each time), the food was brilliant and the service superlative. BUT the noise level of the so-called "background music" was not just intrusive, it was irritating, disruptive and unpleasant. AND UNNECESSARY. Please adjust. It was difficult to hear the person sitting next to you; as for conversing comfortably with those across the table? - forget about it!! We four, who have been good friends for ages, got together to enjoy "visiting" in the context of an attractive and relaxed restaurant setting and food I knew would be a treat (in spades!) but really struggled to get past the noise. Not exactly what I had in mind as a "thank you" for their help with my recent joint replacement and recovery.
Defina Wood Fired is a great addition to the neighbourhood! Great pizza, great wine, and great atmosphere! Will be back!
Great ambiance, pizza, service. Consistent with every visit.
We went after the Banksy exhibit. Overall it was very good based on the food and the table service. Our initial impression was pretty poor when we first arrived as the hostess seemed aggressive, demanding if we had a reservation. At that point we were thinking "oops, maybe we made a mistake". Fortunately the staff turned out to be awesome and very helpful. The pizza cooks allowed us to engage and ask a bunch of questions and our table server led us into all the right food choices. Even the person we met acting as the hostess warmed right up near the end. Of note were the very tasty grilled beans and dipping sauce. Out of this world good! Our server recommended keeping the sauce for the pizza - good call! One important comment from my wife. The ladies bathroom is under the stairs and is cluttered with all kinds of busted up furniture and stuff sitting beside the womens toilet. Management should correct this......
Incredible service and fresh dishes. Highly recommend this stylish and cozy restaurant for any occasion. Amazing value for good quality food and good wine. Try their sangria!
