Date with my husband after the opera. Excellent and courteous service, drinks, fresh salad and gluten-free pizza crust that is i distinguishable from the “real” thing! Have been before and we’ll go again!

As always great food but staff at this location is just simply bad. Somehow unfriendly and unprofessional and unorganized. Had a reservation yet still had to wait for a table because of a mix up. I always feel rushed when I visit this place.

The service was really slow, we asked for chillies and it was served after we reached the last piece of the pizza.
Even after verifying twice I was served the wrong pizza, which the server apologised for and replaced it soon.
So overall the service was okay, pizza with buffalo mozzarella was amazing, and we paid around 25$ each(without drinks)

Loved the food and service. A bit noisy, but that’s unfortunately kind of standard for many restaurants.

Great food and — at least as my wife says — one of the best gluten free crusts anywhere.

Pros: Pizza was okay and Tiramisu excellent.
Cons: Although we booked with one month in advance, our table was small and badly placed close to the washrooms that are smelly and dirty (unisex)
In addition we were not served with the complimentary bread

Personally, I found the quantity of ingredients on my pizzas to be very sparse . I would have liked the tomato sauce a bit spicier and not as sweet as it was.

Personally I find the pizza to be close to the Pizza that I had in Naples 2 weeks ago. The service there was excellent and I was offered wine to sample so that I can decide which to choose.

Might have been an off day as we normally get great service here but came for lunch and our order took nearly an hour for 2 pasta dishes and a pizza. Our server didn't notice that we were the first seated in our section and the last served. When our food did come, nearly 30 minutes later the pizza was not cooked.
The server did take it back promptly and replace it with a fully cooked one and removed it from our bill. Nice gesture and was appreciated but I'd prefer to have had a great lunch in a reasonable amount of time. Hope this was an off day so I'll give you another try.

The gluten free pizza was the best I've had. But they would not customize a set of toppings away from the fixed menu choices, which I found very inconsistent. They also messed up the order and had to make a new pizza.

Overall good. My campanion’s gnocchi was very good but my prosciutto pizza was chewy in a bad way. Poor quality, unevenly cut meat. Spoiled my meal. The olives were mushy too. Bread delicious.

Hi,

I recently visited the University location this past weekend and was looking forward to enjoying a nice meal with. We had booked a reservation prior, and upon arrival at the restaurant, we were seated quickly on the patio. From then on, the service went downhill. We had no actual sense of who our server was as nobody
introduced themselves to us as such. While someone came quickly to give us water and take our drink and food orders, we saw very little of the servers from thereon. While our starter (summer salad) was given to us in a normal amount of time however it was missing walnuts. We would've brought this to the attention of one of the servers, however, nobody asked how our starters were or came by to check upon us. After completing the salad, we proceeded to wait for an hour for our starters, it had seemed as if we were invisible as nobody came over to inquire about our needs. We eventually had to ask one of the random servers walking by if we could have some bread. After waiting for almost over an hour, we eventually had to inquire about the starters, which we then realized were completely forgotten about. As we watched all the tables around us be seated, ordered, eat and enjoy their meals and then pay in a timely manner, we felt like fools just sitting there. I have been coming to Pizza Libretto for almost 6 years, and any time I have ever received poor service, it has always been at the University location. Even after one of the managers came out and apologized, the service was still poor, it was as if the server on the patio forgot about us for a second time as he didn't even remember where we were sitting when he came to deliver the wrapped left-overs. In all my time visiting and spending my money at your restaurant, I have never as a guest been more neglected. I hope you look into this situation and rectify the issues, so futures guests do not have to feel as disappointed as we did.

Delicious food. Loved the gnocchi fritti and margharita pizza. Server was helpful and explained specials well. Desserts were awesome too. Only complaint was we had to wait quite a bit not just for our appetizers, but our main course and desserts surprisingly too!

My son and I had a wonderful experience. I had the mushroom pizza which was flavorful and delicious. My son enjoyed the pepperoni pizza. The service was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is my go-to place for pizza. I also recommended it to my friends who love it after trying. The pizza and pasta here are definitely worth coming for! We receive friendly service here but some times they rush customers. We, a party of 3, definitely felt rushed after being there for less than 1.5 hours. Maybe there was something going on and the seats were needed, but that would go better if someone tells us so.

Had a small mishap with our chicken and both our server and the shift manager ensured that we are well taken care of, letting us know the status of our order as well as providing with complimentary dessert.
On top of the food being fantastic and the pizza one of the best in the city we were also very pleased with the service.
Thank you for everything, will definitely recommend to everyone!

Pizza was good. Everything was very salty - especially the calamari. It was sliced rather thick. I prefer it to have a lighter batter , definitely less salt. I didn’t care fore the sauce so they gave me their marinara instead. The marinara sauce was DELICIOUS. And the gelato was delicious.
The waiter was awesome.
