  1. A former premier and a disgruntled COO of a FROYO company with the backing of some family with $100M to throw around, opening a 'fast food' Italian chain....just what we need!

      Yup super psyched another right wing pizza place. Woo-hoo? I can't wait to see how they do in the downtown west end with their backers. Ugh.

    2. Right Wing Marios hey badda-boom bada-bing

      1. Plenty of waaaay better options in the city than a chain (with nefarious connections). I'm sure it'll do fine in the 'burbs.

        I'm not going near it

          Ha! I live in the 'burbs and I am not going near it with a ten foot pole ... not with those nefarious connections.

        2. But, hold on!

          On Yelp, Helen L (in her first post) said "great ambience and food to die for" and Peter W (in his first post) said he "was blown away by the quality and the freshness".

          Plus they've got the location strategy all figured out - Dufferin and Rutherford followed by College and Dovercourt makes perfect sense - not like those silly companies that try to cluster their operations to maximize efficiencies.

            Don't forget queen and dovercourt! Again ugh.

          2. Has anyone actually tried the food though? The prices seem reasonable if the quality is decent...

              Considering all the cuts Harris made during his time as premier, I think opening a restaurant, the business of which is fairly directly correlated to arts and culture, is highly hypocritical of him. Based on that I will not step foot in a single outpost. I was in high school during his premiership(?) and it made our education a very difficult experience.
