If you live in Toronto or if you’re planning to visit our beautiful city, you must try the pizza at Pizza e Pazzi on St. Clair Avenue West. We were invited to dine by the owner himself and I was so impressed by the authentic Italian flavour. Pizza et Pazzi is one of the few pizzerias in the city that can claim certification from the Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana. It’s a slice of heaven.

To start we had Calabrese Bread with three antipasto samples of olives, marinated mushrooms and a house specialty called “la bomba”, a delicious garlicky spread. The antipasto platter was sublime.

I tried the The Pizza Diavola, with just enough of a kick from the spicy salami without being overwhelming. The cheese is fresh mozzarella di buffala, the sauce is made from San Marzano tomatoes, the crust from wheat flour and natural Neapolitan yeast. Cooked to perfection in the wood burning oven.

I was also very impressed with the decor. Black painted walls, with rustic wooden panels and swinging light bulbs dangling from the ceiling. On the opposite side is exposed brick. The decor is rustic, yet trendy and surprisingly cosy without being pretentious. The restaurant is kid-friendly and the patrons were so nice! We had conversations with the people at the surrounding tables. The prices are affordable. You simply must try it  yourself!
