Viva Napoli on Mt. Pleasant

As I was walking over to Il Gelatiere for some excellent gelato (pistachio and pera), I noticed the scent of wood smoke in the air. I didn't really think about it and figured it was someone's fireplace. On the way back up Mt. Pleasant, I noticed a new restaurant, basically directly across the street from Lai Toh Heen. Windows are still partially covered, but way in back of the restaurant was a wood-fired pizza oven and a man reaching into it with a wooden pizza paddle. It's called Viva Napoli. That's all the information I have at the moment.

Il Gelatiere
647 Mt Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S, CA

Lai Toh Heen
692 Mt Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S, CA

      I passed by it last week, and asked a couple of guys who were doing some work on it when it would open - they said maybe in a couple of weeks.
