dre @ Dundas and Ossington: My coworker Aziz had recommended this pizza place to check out. He said it was comparable to Terroni's. I hardly go to that area, but one day, we were going to check out a bike that I found on Craigslist in that area, so we decided to eat a late lunch there.
Pizzeria Libretto serves authentic Neapolitan pizza. Wood oven and everything. Even at 2pm, the place was quite busy. I ordered the $15 lunch prezzo fisso (fixed price). It came with 3 Bruschette. It is the chef's choice what to put on them each day. That day, they came with goat cheese with roasted peppers, truffle oil on another cheese spread, and Gorgonzola. As you know, I don't like cheese and if it's "exotic", I would like it even less. I tried a little bit of each, but mostly gave it to Mike. I think he enjoyed it.
My main dish was the Piadina of the day. I had no idea what a Piadina was, and when it came, it was prosciutto with spinach in a pita. I picked off the cheese as well. Yes, I'm terrible for ruining the chef's creation :(
Mike ate the House-Made Sausage pizza with caramelized onion, Ontario fiore di latte mozzarella, chili oil. The crust was pretty good and thin. They could have put more sausage on it for the price.
Included in my prezzo fisso was dessert - a vanilla affogato. This affogato was a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso and a shot of Amaretto. I was trying to take a good picture before all the layers were mixed together.
I enjoyed the meal, but it was quite pricey for what it was. I don't think I ever really crave fancy pizza, so probably won't come back purposely for the pizza.
