Hamilton rec needed

Will be at a show at Hamilton Place and need a recommendation for a Friday and Saturday night. Want something moderately priced Italian, wood fired pizza if possible, nice loud and low light atmosphere.
Will be going to Ancaster too one of those days.

  1. La Cantina would fit the bill - excellent wood fired pizza. It's about a 10 - 15 minute walk from Hamilton Place (or a 5 min. drive). Highly recommended.

    1. I would agree that La Cantina fits that description best. Bread Bar on Locke St. would give you comparable pizza and chic atmosphere, but its not as convenient to downtown. Na Roma is the best pizza overall, but it is casual/upscale counter service. If you want more of an old school family style Italian-American atmosphere, Valentino's Westdale and Capri on John N. fit the bill. If you're looking for the best Italian downtown, my personal favourite is for Claudio's Ristorante on Jackson St (no pizza though). Ancaster - not sure.... Enjoy
