Pizzeria Libretto to open Danforth location
Pizzeria Libretto looks to be opening a second location - this time on the Danforth. Toronto Life reports that chef Rocco Agostino and owners Max Rimaldi and Daniel Clark are putting the finishing touches on the lease for a space on the east end strip and will be looking to open at the end of the summer.
While last year's opening of Queen Margherita Pizza brought authentic Neopolitan pizza to the east end, given the success of the first location and its sister restaurant, Enoteca Sociale -- voted number one and two in 2008 and 2010 on our annual best of lists, respectively -- one would expect that packed tables and long wait times lie on the horizon for Libretto II. As for why they chose the neighbourhood, Agostino told Andrew D'Cruz that the Danforth is "a great area. There's a lot of foot traffic, a lot of families. It's a real neighbourhood. We're all about neighbourhoods."
No word yet on an exact address or exactly what the menu will look like, but we'll keep tabs on this most exciting development.
