Some of the best pizza around, you'll want to make a reservation for a Fri/Sat night or you could end up waiting.

I reserved a table for a dinner for my girlfriend's birthday and throughout the process, the staff and manager (Anna P.) were all exceptionally kind and welcoming. Although he had disruptions with the number of people showing up throughout the week, the staff was so kind and accommodating. The staff at Libretto did everything they could to make the event even more special for my girlfriend, and we can't thank them enough.

First time attending Pizzeria Libretto and can honestly say was not suitably impressed.
We advised server we had to leave at 3:15 for a play. We arrived at 1:45pm. Plenty of time.

Table of 6 people and not once were we served without us having to flag down our server.
(red hair lady).
She threw the oil on the table and didn't advise it was hot - the kids ate and were upset how hot it was. We never got offered a second round of drinks that we would have loved to have. We were completely ignored.
I told her this several times about the timing and explained that I had been clear with our cut off and in the end we end up running down the street to make the play.

Food - was out of gnocchi which was a disappointment. Out of juice for one of the kids. Low beer selection.

At the end of the day we won't be coming back that I can see.

Have been many times over the years and our recent visit did not disappoint. Great service, our reserved table was ready 10 minute early and our orders were taken quickly. As always the food was on point and this is probably in our top 3 places for pizza in the GTA. You won't be disappointed.

The pizza is quite good. Though it can be extremely loud, making the dinning experience unpleasant. We actually left the restaurant with our ears hurting us. It is not the music; the way the restaurant seems to be designed, it only takes a few loud customers to make the decibel-level uncomfortable.

We had our work team dinner on Ossington & everything was so awesome. Our server, Nikki, was SO wonderful - charming, knowledgeable, courteous and overall a perfect server. All the food we selected was great (5 pizzas), in particular the corn/bacon special and the margherita with ricotta pizza was outstanding! Overall such a great experience, we had a comfortable table and the restaurant was lively but not chaotic. Highly recommend (again & again & again!)

We enjoyed our dinner. Table would get dirty, dirty plates sat for a while too long. Disjointed music playlist overheard. Kids liked their gelato, but probably could have just used one scoop each.

As usual the food at Pizzeria Libretto was outstanding. Highly recommend the Duck Con fit Pizza as well as pleasantly surprised by the Fungi! Meatballs were so savory, with a delicious San Marzano tomato sauce. Unfortunately, our waiter was a bit on the disengaged side. Not asking for Michelin service, but c'mon people, if you don't like the job, do something else.

Pizza was good. Calamari were awful...boxed/frozen for sure
We were expecting a more "Italian" experience but nobody spoke Italian or even knew how to pronounce the italian dishes.

Probably won't return.

Wonderful, attentive service and delicious food! We shared 2 pizzas and a salad among 3 of us and it was more than enough. The server brought us a dessert on the house for our special occasion - so lovely. Would definitely recommend this place.

Food was delicious. Service was fantastic. We were seated at the back and the noise level was high. Difficult to hear my friends. Next time I make a res I will ask for a table closer to the front.

The best gluten free pizza in town, hands down. The duck confit/pear/rosemary pizza is divine! Also, we were fortunate to have the zucchini flowers in season to try out this seasonal grilled zucchini pizza, which is outstanding. A large group was very loud, and due to this location being a bit smaller, made it difficult to hear ourselves speak, but this is to be expected at times. Overall, great experience, yet again!

The Ossington location has a comfortable neighborhood ambiance. Just a very loud person right behind us. The waiter was very good just never returned for coffee order. Most importantly, the arugula salad and the pizzas (Double Margarita and Mushroom) were delicious. Definitely go again!!

Got a bunch of apps + a pizza. Great service & great casual ambiance. The only minus for me was that the calamari I got was a little burnt (didn't realize until gf pointed it out at the end of the meal, seeing the same dish coming out for other tables).

Back space of the restaurant was quite noisy (one table celebrated a birthday I think), but we asked to be seated on the front which made our whole experience more pleasant.

Good little Italian spot on Ossington near Dundas. We loved the pizza and the vibe but I couldn't give higher marks because the noise level is too loud, and it's not from loud music. My friend and I were seated in the main dining room at the back and had to practically shout to have a conversation. There were times when one of us would start talking (loudly) and the noise level would go up so high we'd have to stop knowing that we couldn't be heard. Everything else was really good.
