My friend brought me there and i had no sence of direction of the area. does anyone know of it? Also where else is there good pizza joint in the GTO?

  1. That's all you've got? It's on the Danforth, and there was a little old man all by himself making pizzas? That's not much to go on.

      Note that Danforth Pizza House (my favourite take out place also!) is between Donlands and Pape, not Donlands and Greenwood, very close to Masellis Brothers Grocers (awsome prosciutto made on the premises). The guy who makes the pizza is from Napoli nad has been making pizza at this location for 30 years. There are limited toppings, and he does not deliver. My favourite is hte House Special: I always ask that they add anchovies, and then I throw some capers onto it when I get it home. Heaven.

    2. You are talking about Danforth Pizza House (north side between Donlands and Greenwood - 920 Danforth. It is still there, and so is the man. It is my favourite pizza in Toronto. Very simple pizza with traditional toppings. Closest to NY pizza I have had in the city. Take out, no delivery, pizza and drinks (brio too), no slices. Yummy!

        I agree wholeheartedly agree and should thank you for pointing this place out to me in another thread. It was by far the best pizza I've had in TO. Browned cheese, crisp crust, plain and slightly salty sauce. It was great! I found it a tad overcooked (too much of the blackened leopard print bottom) and will ask if he can pull it out about 3-5 minutes early next time.

      2. I take it back - apparently that is enough to go on. :)

        1. Just realized I forgot the phone number - 416 463-4927. enjoy!

          1. oops, sorry, yes west of Donlands, you are right bluedog.
