La Gioconda (Decarie)

There is a fine Italian restaurant near us called La Gioconda (www.lagioconda.ca) on Decarie. I'm not as interested in their "fine" Italian cuisine as I am in their pizzas. Judging by the pictures the pizza looks very similiar to what we are looking for in a crust. (Thick and chewy) Now, I'm wondering about the sauce. Has anyone tried the pizza there recently?? I would be interested in any reviews.
We have taken out pizza from La Gioconda and eaten there as well. Their pizzas are great but i still have difficulty paying over $60 to feed my family pizza (3 teenage boys and husband) . It is really old school pizza, chewy crust, very fresh and generous ingredients, not greasy. Their veal dishes are also excellent. Service is attentive. i just find that given the location of the restaurant although the prices do compare to other restaurants of the same caliber every dish seems to be priced $2 too high. For the price we pay for a meal there I rather be somewhere else. All said, it is certainly worth a try. There is a parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.
Thanks for letting me know. I wondered about parking and the pizza. It must be old school pizza I love because that's the first pizza I've seen that comes close to what I've been looking for since I moved to Montreal (almost a year ago). I was starting to think that good pizza in Montreal didn't exist. I wil go try La Gio the first chance I get and let you know if it was all I expected and more!
