Pizza place in First Canadian Place Toronto

A long time ago, my first job was at First Canadian Place, I use to go into the food court and get the BEST pizza slice ever, a few years ago I went back to the food court only to see its been renovated and said pizza place is no longer there...does anyone remember the name of this place and if they opened up somewhere else?

  1. I remember this place - it was great. Was it Pizza Manna?

        Are you guys sure? I recall the guy who worked / ran the place (practically a one man show. He'd do all the pizza orders and he'd have someone ring in the cash...) He was pretty chummy and his pizza place didn't have a franchise "feel" to it. If this is true, I am RUNNING back there when I return from mat leave. His pizza was the best and incredible value.

          I think it was the original one - it was there years ago (like, the last time I ate there was in 2000). Maybe he expanded?

      2. I loved that place. In the underground, right where the Longo's is now... Boo.

        I wish I could remember the name.

        1. Yes thats it!!! Pizza Manna (I think I always thought it was Pizza Mama)...I guess they are not far away in the exchange tower now...I'm pregnant so this is a huge craving for me!!!

          1. Piazza Manna is a big chain - not the same guy.

              I remember that Piazza Manna as well, I was under the impression that that one was the first one and the quality suffered after they started to expand and franchise.

                I really don't think so - Piazza Manna has (a sorry excuse for) pastas, etc. The place in FCP was just pizza - but around 20 varieties on any given day.

                And it was glorious.
