Walking along Yonge St. between Davisville and Lawrence, there are many opportunities to get a quick snack, without having to invest the time or money on a sit-down meal. We have a few favourites that we frequent regularly, and also found a new place that we are waiting to try.
The pizzas have thin, crispy crust, just like we found in Rome. When we arrived, two new pizzas had just come out of the oven–number 6 is the funghi e Salsiccia (button mushrooms, Italian sausage, fresh mozzarella) and number 9 the funghi e provola (Button mushrooms, fresh mozzarella, smoked provola). We chose these two since they were freshly baked and did not need to be reheated–and having mushroom (my favourite) as the main ingredient did not hurt! It was interesting to note how many of the 31 pizzas (including our two choices) did not include tomato sauce, that staple of North American pizza.
Unfortunately, since the store was not designed for dining, there is very little seating available to eat the delicious food. You have a choice of a few bar stools along a ledge adjacent to the cash register, or you could fight for the one small table at the back of the store, or jockey for position on the bench in front of the store. The high quality, great tasting food definitely make it worth a return visit. But we made a note to self to return on a week day, since the volume of
customers on the weekend made for long delays to even order, let alone
get your food served and find seating.
