Dante's Pizza - Thornhill

After reading many previous posts on delivery from Dante's, I finally made my way over to have a try for myself.

My SO and I found the pizza to be very good, we ordered a small deluxe which had grilled peppers, salami, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes, plus we also shared a rigatoni with meat sauce and meatballs.

I thought the pizza was quite good. It stayed nice and hot for a long time while we ate. We must have been there for at an hour and the cheese was still stringy at the end. They piled on the toppings as well, no stinginess there. The pasta wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but I liked the meatballs.

The pizza is a little more expensive than your typical chain pizzeria, but still reasonably priced. The 12" we ordered was $23.85. Parking is not easy in that little mall, but seems that people park all over the place. Quite a popular little restaurant to eat in as well.

  1. I love Dante's. IMHO it's the best in the city.

    I agree that it's a bit expensive however I've found this to be very acceptable for two reasons. Better quality and better value. A large from them may be more expensive than a chain pizza with the same toppings but if you were to weigh them, the Dante's would weigh more. So it's a good value.

      A bit more expensive? It's MUCH more expensive and the food is mediocre.

      1. re: wordsworth

        in your opinion. but if you compare it with pizza pizza and the like, its food from the gods... but this comparison is not very fair.

        thier pizza is BIG (you do get what you pay for)
        the taste is the best pizza, i have tasted in toronto. but the bar was never that high in the first place.
        if you have a better pizza place, please tell us

    2. I agree. My wife and I have seen Dante's delivery cars around our area for years but finaly tried it earlier this year and are hooked. The pizzas are definitey a touch more dear than chain pizzas but well worth it.

      Their entrees and salads are huge for the $ and decent value...enough for lunch the next day if I don't split it over dinner.

      1. My wife and I enjoy Dante's once and awhile as well, mainly because they are the only decent non-chain italian food available in our area (404/Major MacKenzie area) I also love their pastas!

        1. As far as I am concerned, there is NO other pizza which compares to Dantes! They are outstanding! I visited Toronto and the surrounding townships fairly recently, and was lucky enough to have tried a Dantes Pizza via a friend of mine.

          NOW...I live was born and live in Southern California. There are many local pizza eateries, Hollywood style "Wolfgang Puck" type pizzas, California Pizza kitchens...yadda yadda yadda.

          NOTHING compares to the quality, freshness, taste and value (you get what you pay for) than a Dantes pizza. My only gripe is that I have to fly over Two thousand miles to get one! I had their pizza on more than one occasion. Each time, their pizza was delivered piping hot, heaped with whichever toppings I specified. And sure, it is a bit more than "regular" pizza. But they are not regular in any sense of the word. Their pizza is fantastic! I didnt mind paying more than the conventional pizza because you truly got your moneys worth and more.

          I would whole heartily recommend Dantes Pizza to anyone in the area, and especially to the tourist who visits Ontario. You owe it to yourself to find this hidden treasure!
