Pizzeria Libretto now open for lunch

Not sure if this has been posted but Pizzeria Libretto is open for lunch. Was there today and had the $15 Prix Fixe. Includes salad, pizza and desert. A fantastic deal considering that you cannot get a pizza at Terroni for that price at lunch.

  1. yeah, but you get to put up with lineups and crowded tables and annoying servers at Libretto instead

      Duckdown, I was there for lunch. No lineups at all.

        In there today, great service and no line-ups. Parking not a problem.

          i think the servers there are great, very friendly for all 3 of my visits.

          the servers at Terronis are pretentious and not very polite. my feelings towards the service there was confirmed after having a large party (16+ ppl) for coworkers but ended up being hassled by the staff 15 mins prior to my reservation until the very end of the dinner. i will not be returning and dissuade others with a large group who want to go there. there are many other places in the city that do great food without the snobby service.

        2. It is a great lunch deal. Love everything about this place and their pizza.

            It's a really great lunch deal...

            I am there often and have NEVER had annoying service...

            ...quite the opposite actually.... great, warm, and enthusiastic service.

              That is a great deal. And I've been several times and never had bad service. In fact it's always been really good and although I have no problem with waiting, I've never had to wait longer than 20 minutes or so. Didn't find it crowded either. It's lively and has a good vibe, full but not crowded. And when I do have to wait on Ossington I appreciate that they will take your number and call you when a table is ready giving you an opportunity to grab a drink nearby. I recently sent some friends from Chicago there and they raved about it. Definitely prefer it to Terroni's.

          2. excellent! thought it looked opened when I passed by yesterday. Can't wait to take my toddler!

            1. Thanks for the update.
              Went there for lunch today. No line up. Excellent value for the Prix Fixe.

              1. Great to know!! Thanks for the info. Sounds like a great deal and if I can get in there without a lineup, even better!
