  • Frank makes good pizza, with interesting and delicous toppings. Its family run so it has random hours, and inconcistant service staff at times. But the price is right, and the food is yummy. Give it a shot, and you'll be happy you stoped in.

  • FINALLY. A place in Toronto that serves awesome Pizza! Fresh Toppings, loaded with taste, perfect cheese, and a great crust. And not greasy! Hands down my favourite and best Pizza parlour in Toronto. The Danforth Pizza house is good, but this is better. If you have ever had pizza in the Windsor-Detroit area, this pizza is made from that same recipe. You'll know as soon as you taste it.
    If you decide to dine in, the interior is clean, casual, and a classy. Staff is friendly and work hard to ensure you are happy with your meal. The pasta dishes are good too, very fresh, and good sized portions. The prices are standard fare.

  • Order: deluxe pizza, veal parm, gnochi, carbonera

  • When reading reviews, I was shocked that people had a negative experience here. I really have nothing negative to say but do mind these tips, to help maximize your evening.
    1) No reservations, and a popular establishment means... go EARLY! Don't wait until 7pm or after, because you'll be waiting a while. Also, don't go with a large party and expect an intimate setting, its a tight trendy europen seating setup. If you can, get there when the doors open, and enjoy the restaurant to yourself and watch the rush trickle in.
    2) Do try the desserts - goat cheescake was phenomenal, and don't be in a rush, because eating and ordering here is a process and an experience, very similar to the acutal way of eating in Italy.
    3) the place is noisy from all the conversations (like a mall/market) not club music. But its not so loud you can't hear.
    4) Try Scotty's Meatball, the Asperagus side, sweet potato giant ravioli, and the pulled pork. Best Ever!
    5) The decor/atmospher is intentional, parking is free after 6pm on the street, and the service is often friendly and knowledgable.
    All in all, the place IS expensive so don't go expecting cheap, but if you love food you'll justify and find value in the expense.

  • Everything about this restaurant is good. But its not the best. Expect fresh, tasty food, with a nice setting, and good service. Its family run, but its nothing exceptional. Stick to the pasta dishes.

  • Order: Veal Parm, Spag. Meatballs, Brushetta, Salad,
