New Pizzeria Libretto on the Danforth.

This is a resto awaited with much anticipation not only for the location, convenient for those who live in the centre or eastern part of Toronto, but also, as it is the only Pizza Libretto that takes reservations. I like the topping varieties that set Pizza Libretto apart. However, I found the nicely blistered crust at this location a bit too doughy/chewy. I much prefer a crispier crust which has a bit of a flake when one bights into it.

Anchovy crostino: marinated fresh anchovies, eggplant, roasted red pepper, confit tomato, bufala ricotta. Terrific!

Anchovy, tomato, mozzarella di bufala, preserved chili and roasted garlic.

Funghi: panna, rosemary, mozzarella, hen of the woods, king and abalone mushrooms.

Ontario prosciutto, arugula, garlic, tomato, oregano, shaved grana padano cheese.

Pork belly with smoked tomato ragu, mozzarella, bomba, caramelized onion and lemon thyme. This topping resulted in a tasty, but too much of an oily surface.
