Everything from the hostess to our waiter to the food to the friendly family atmosphere made our dinner reservation awesome! Can’t wait to come back!

Date night with my Daughters is a special tradition and Libretto is a perfect place to do it. My daughters are presently 8 and 10 yrs old. Our experience was awesome there and we will definitely come again. Only thing, the service was decent but not worth %18 percent of my bill and once the server realized what I gave (%15) her attitude changer drastically. If I could I would’ve gave her much less. If or when we come again and she is serving my family and I, I will definitely not give her 18% to begin with.

Pizza was great, the pasta less so. Very little flavor to the Gnocci. It was busy early, at 6:45 the place was packed both upstairs and downstairs. Noise level went down around 8 pm.

Amazing experience, always love going here. My bad booking a reservation as early as I did (6:15). There were so many little kids which were very loud, to the point we were shouting across the table at one another. Delicious margarita pizza.

I’ve been going to Libretto for years now and noticed the service this time was just not up to what I’ve experienced before. We were not offered the option of complimentary sparkling water. Our appetizer and pizza came out at the same time, we were not asked what our preference was. It was particularly busy that night, but these are little things that make a difference in our experience. Disappointed.

Our first time at Libretto was so good that we are planning on returning this week for round two. They have plenty of options for veg, vegan, gf, etc, including an excellent house made gelato that was to die for.

I had a reservation which was honoured immediately I walked in. The waitstaff were so attentive - I was early and awaiting for my friend. I was seated and offered a drink, water etc. The waiter we had, Nathan, was excellent and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our choices. He was terrific. He gave us a little treat at the end which was incredibly kind and certainly not expected at all. I've been before, but my friend had not been to this particular Libretto location. We loved it. The fried calamari is the best I've ever had with a roasted red pepper I think, garnish. The flavour of the calamari was beyond delicious. WE'LL BE BACK FOR SURE! Thank you.

Soggy pizza crusts. Pizza Napolitana and Capressa Salad with no cheese. Terrible service. Why would anyone eat at this dump? Any pizza delivery does a better job.

Yummy pizza and would definitely come back again. I’m gluten free and vegan so they do have choices for that except they don’t have separate ovens so there will be cross contamination. Their King Street location does have a separate oven and I’ve eaten there as well!

We went for an early dinner with our toddler and infant, 6pm. It was packed with other families but this did not slow down or impede service. Staff were friendly and accommodating, food came out quickly, everything was delicious.
Really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely go again.

I was overall somewhat disappointed with my recent outing at Libretto. First, the good. The arugula salad, excellent as always. I also like that you can reserve online and we were given an excellent table. I would like to add that the in house baked bread served as an appetizer
was very nice. However, this time I was super disappointed with the pizza :( I was not impressed with the hot drizzle sauce they poured all over it. The sauce itself was good but looked ridiculous and just doesn't belong on a pizza, especially not an authentic thin crust pizza. The pepperoni they used was the same quantity as the one used at Pizza Pizza (in my opinion). They would have been better off using authentic Italian Genoa or soppressata. Sadly, the pizza was not as tasty as I remember and that includes the tomato sauce. Seriously, that hot drizzle sauce has got to go! Is it supposed to be a decorative touch? It fails in more than one way. It does not belong on a pizza. I won't be returning from a while :(

Started off with the arugula salad, was great! Loved the pear & walnuts in it with the piave cheese. Piave cheese is one of my favourite cheeses so it was awesome to see on the menu. We had the meat & cheese board at the same time as the arugula salad. Never knew they had boards on the menu, so it was nice to change it up since we usually have the calamari. It came with a bread that puffs up in the oven, and had rosemary & olive oil in it. Was very tasty and went well with the board. The apple jam was amazing! Not sure what the other dip was. It came with fennel breadsticks, Brie cheese, blue cheese, Pepperoni sticks, prosciutto & a couple other meat & cheese (can’t remember the names). The whole board was very tasty but I feel like the calamari is just a staple that needs to be ordered every time as an appetizer.
The funghi pizza is something that we order every time, and it was great. We decided to try the mezze pasta (they have had pasta on the menu for the last 6 months now), and it is something I would not order again. It reminded me of a minestrone more than a pasta. There were vegetables in it, to much sugo and barely any meat in it. What I did like is that all there pasta is hand made (by enoteca sociale). I am picky with my pasta anyways since no one can beat my nonnas pasta, so for some people I’m sure they love it, so biggest thing I would say about it was there not being enough meat in it.
Service was good, they kept on checking up on us.
Defiantly next time I go back, I will stick to the pizza for an entrée, try a new salad and get the calamari (maybe the meatballs & aranchi balls too yum).

Food is excellent. Noise level is high, it would be great if they could figure out how to deal with this. Service is excellent, a big shout out to Kaelin, she’s a special person and consistently warm, cheerful and helpful. Thank you!
