Still looking for good pizza delivery in the Victoria Park & Eglinton area

  • Googs Aug 1, 2013 10:56 AM

Any suggestions? Has anyone tried Ciao Ciao Panini Pasta & Pizza on Underhill in the same plaza as High Street Fish & Chips?

  1. Are you looking for good deliverable pizza, or good delivery service?

    Also, what is your definition of good?

    I get my pizza at Amato's on Vic Park and St Clair E - more of a pan pizza crust, not overly tart sauce, close enough that the cheese is still gooey when it makes it to my apartment.

      I'm looking for good pizza delivered to my door. I define good as a well made, delicious red sauce on top of a well made, delicious crust whether thick, thin, or in between. The platform is everything. I'm not particular as to whether it's wood or stone oven, so long as it's one of those. This I can sacrifice, though, if necessary. I'd like it from a place that knows how to assemble one even if you stray from their set pizza selections.

    2. Regino's is one step above most delivery places. But they might not deliver to your location, I would call and find out. They have outlets north and south of you in Scarborough. http://www.reginospizza.com/reginos-l...

        I'll definitely give Regino's a try.

      2. Have not tried the pizza but had planned to. I tried their cannolis when they first opened. I wasn't wowed, so I haven't been itching to go back... but perhaps their pizza or pasta is better.

        1. have not tried the place on Underhill. Diamond Pizza (Danforth/Main area) might deliver to your area...nothing fancy but generally tasty and good value.

          Yikes, I see they're old school, will deliver cigarettes...Pizza Pizza did the same...

            Smokes and a banquet burger delivered to your door. Right on. Have you had anything other than the pizza?

            1. re: kbdid

              Diamond Pizza is very old school. Lots of cheese, toppings, thick crust. I like it. I like it cold next morning.

                Mmmmmm day old morning after pizza.

            2. Hey Googs, don't bother trying Ciao Ciao. I've been twice and finally decided that they'll never get their act together. I don't know why people think they can open up a shop and then serve uninspiring food. Why bother?

              Had both lasagna and later a veal panini. Both were just luke-warm and tasteless. Ingredients (and the veal in tomato sauce) just sit around, so nothing is fresh.

              The one pizza sitting there (for slices) looked thin and cardboard-y.

              I'll never go back.

                Bummer. I think Ciao Ciao's new. Maybe they'll get better.

                1. re: Googs

                  That's what I thought too and why I went back a second time.
                  Don't think a miracle is going to happen here.

                  1. re: DUH CAR

                    That really bites. I live so close and it would be fantastic to have a local place where we could grab a pizza (a la Danforth Pizza House) on the way home from work. Such a shame.

                2. re: DUH CAR

                  I have good news and bad news. The good: Ciao Ciao was taken over by new owners about a week ago. The bad: They no longer deliver.

                  1. re: Googs

                    I went past yesterday and saw they were closed for renovations. When they re-open, I will give it another try.

                    1. re: Apple

                      I'll wait for your review before trying. Twice bitten, three times shy.....

                      1. re: DUH CAR

                        FWIW the new owner seemed to care about what she's doing. That's the most important first step.

                3. How about Venice? They're at o'connor and st. clair. They're pretty decent, a little more refined than diamond :p

                    We were getting our pizzas from Venice. Then they had some cleanliness issues. It's too bad. The pizza's very good, but not worth the risk.

                    I tried picking up pizza from Crazy Tomato and bringing it home myself. Then I ordered two custom pizzas not on their fixed pizza menu. That seemed to confuse the kitchen staff. What Beau and I ate at home made us never wanna go back.

                    1. re: Googs

                      Too bad about Venice. I stopped ordering from them after big house opened. Mainly because I love the owners so much! Maybe some of their other regulars did the same? I'll keep my tastebuds out for ya googs!

                      1. re: LexiFirefly

                        It really is too bad. I hope he can get it together and make a comeback. I'd been eating Venice Pizza for years. I don't know why things changed so radically.

                  2. I work in that area and we always order from La Famiglia (O'Connor just south of Eglinton.) Always a hit.
