Falasca - Avoid

Just returned from lunch. Greasiest pizza I've ever eaten. No coffee of any sort. Glass of wine served in a Dollarama grade disposable plastic cup. A new low in contempt for customers.

    1. Completely disagree with the OP's take on the pizza. I've never eaten in, but the few times I had the pizza, it was not greasy, was quite tasty and had a nice crisp crust. Also, it's sold by weight, so they will cut as small or large a piece as you'd like. Service has always been friendly. I can't comment on the coffee of cups, since I've never had a drink there. I also agree with the comments about the vague title.

        Good to hear you liked it, Yongeman. I still haven't tried their pizza, but I talked to a manager for maybe 15 minutes during the summer, just as Falasca was closing up for the night, as I ate some gelato from the nearby Simply Italian, and I thought the manager was really friendly.

        Which of their pizzas have you liked the most?

        If I remember correctly, pizzas are sold by weight at lunchtime, and by the whole pizza at dinnertime.

          I've had a few different types, but can't really recommend one over the other...all good. Here's a link to Amy Pataki's article in . It's a pretty comprehensive write-up and even explains the lack of expresso which was one of the OP's complaints. (by the way, I should have written 'or' instead of 'of' in my first post)
          You can try several different types at lunch by having a small sample of each. Great way to explore the pizza

          1. re: Yongeman

            I would have to agree with the OP. Although I didn't find the pizza greasy, it was really bland, and very disappointing. I would never go back there again.

            1. re: kwass

              based on my one visit, i also thought the pizza was distinctly sub par. i recall the crust being particularly disappointing. didn't have any problems with the space or the service, just the pizza.

              1. re: autopi

                I also found the crust to be really disappointing!

                1. re: kwass

                  The one time I ate there just after they opened, I wasn't thrilled with the crust either. The toppings were fine, and it wasn't greasy, but I do like a bit of char there.

              2. re: kwass

                I'm still planning to try Falasca out because I usually like same kinds of foods that Yongeman likes.

                Sorry to hear you and autopi found the pizza disappointing.

            1. As I live in the neighbouhood, I have eaten food from Falasca several times. I really enjoy their pizza that is served by weight during the day. I think my favourite is the "Numero Uno" that is a white pizza with zuccini. I have ordered pizza twice at night in the sit down restaurant and was not impressed. Both times the pizzas were much blander than what I can take-out during the day (note that I ordered totally different pizzas when I visited the restaurant.) I will now only buy their daily selection of pizzas and avoid the restaurant.

              On a related note, I really enjoy both the gelato and espresso from their sister restaurant ".Gelato" across the street.

                the lunch pizzas are pan pizzas and dinner is more what people are used too. could likely have different recipes or even diff cooks since the format changes a lot.
