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.

Good food, good vibes. There’s a great special on Wednesdays, $12.00 pizzas with a purchase of a drink.

Cozy but vibrant atmosphere; stellar service. We had the Brussels sprouts, which were delicious and had a good kick, and the pear, mushroom, pesto and Brie pizza - also delicious. Highly recommend!

We celebrated a family member's birthday at The Good Son, first time for all of us. We were a party of 6, with an early seating, and enjoyed a beautiful, comfortable ambience with friendly, attentive staff. Fantastic food all around -- everyone was happy!

They are committed to elevating the customer experience. It was my first visit and I have already told friends that everything from the greeting at the door to the farewell when left was top notch. Excellent dining and ambiance.

The Good Son is a charming must visit for Italian food lovers. The wood fired pizzas are out of this world with a menu that will please carnivores, herbivores and everyone in between. The mood and atmosphere of the restaurant is fun and cozy and the general manager went above and beyond to accommodate our party. They take protocol seriously so while you dine, you'll feel safe with peace of mind.

The food was insanely good. My wife is very picky, and she polished her plate. I polished mine as well. We shared a chicken sandwich which was out of this world and a mushroom truffle pizza. They were both absolutely delicious. I would recommend to anyone who likes to eat good food!
