It has been few weeks since I was back from Toronto, and I already missed its food and vibe. I want to share by far my favourite restaurant in Toronto, Pizzeria Libretto. There are various locations, and we went to one just steps away from our house on Danforth. It wasn’t too busy on a weekend evening, and it is spacious with comfortable seating. Our server is nice and friendly, and he also provided some amazing recommendations among the wide selection from the menu.
Pizzeria Libretto is highly recommended by Mr., and he was happy to visit again. We ordered an Antipasto Misto, which is similar to a charcuterie board. I was surprised by its portion and the varieties of meat and cheese on the board. It has olives, prosciutto di parma, salumi e formaggi, fresh burrata, paneto, and housemade accompaniments. It also comes with few types of cheese and breadsticks to pair with the meat. I totally recommend ordering this to share, as it is totally worth the value than ordering appetizers separately. You will be amazed by the portion and its price.
We also ordered two pizzas to share. We ordered Funghi Di Bosco from the pizza bianca, and Spicy Pepperoni Ricotta Pizza from the feature menu. We were excited to try the Duck Confit, but it was sold out. The Funghi di Bosco first arrived, and it highlights three types of mushrooms – cremini, oyster, and king and three kinds of cheese – pecorino, fior di latte, and gorgonzola. We also added an egg for $1 (weekend special). The first few bites are delicious, but it gets heavy after due to the cheese. I added a bit of spicy chili oil, which eases out the heaviness and also gives a kick to the flavor. I love the slightly-burnt crust because it has a nice crunch and is just perfect to pair with the white pizza sauce.
I enjoyed more of the Spicy Pepperoni Ricotta Pizza more. Its base is san marzano tomato sauce. It also uses shredded mozzarella, fior di latte, and whipped ricotta. The crust is as amazing, but the toppings have a nice heat, and the pizza is more flavourful. As this pizza is on the feature menu, so I am not sure if I can still order the same item again.
Being one of my favourite restaurants during the trip, Pizzeria Libretto wins my heart by its wide selection of pizzas, with unique combination of toppings, as well as the Antipasto Misto. This sharing board has everything you need, while waiting for the freshly made pizzas. The quality and varieties of meat and cheese on the board definitely wow us. I also wanted to try the Duck Confit pizza, as it is another highly recommended pizza from Mr. and his friend. I would definitely return and try other pizzas on the menu and find my most favourite one!
