      Hope he gets well soon. He is The Don of the Danforth.

      Oh boy. Are you sure the lights weren't just really dim? Angelo seems to enjoy working in near-dark...

      Hope all is well, though. My go-to for the last three years. Not long enough!

        I just called. They're open. Whew...just about had a heart attack. Yet it wasn't Angelo that answered, it was his son.

          So glad to hear that they are open. Guess I will need to be getting pizza there in the very near future!

        Closed tonight at 5pm when I drove by. Hope all is well with them and the business. Haven't had their pizza in a while but I am craving it now!

            we picked one up about a week ago. angelo wasn't back to work yet but his son was doing an admirable job.

            apparently angelo's none too happy about the now magazine article so you'll likely have to show up in person to place your order, but it's a good excuse to hang out at the only for a beer while you're waiting!

                Rated 6th best pizza in all of Toronto in 2013 and the best on the list of all the take-out joints. And rightfully so.

                He was upset with the publicity?

            Wow, I know Angelo's Son was coming bye to help out a lot lately. 2 weeks ago he seemed to have a lady there helping out. The place was as busy as ever. Let's hope Angelo is OK and he is back soon.
