Classico Louie's Pizzeria

Classico Louies TorontoA few blocks north of Eglinton on Yonge, sitting in between a high-end bag store and the local Variety store is Classico Louie's Pizzeria. Although pizza joints are a plenty in the 'hood, Classico is definitely one my favourites in the area. It is a step about the other local and chain pizzerias.

The menu is simple. You either make your own or you can choose from fifteen of their house specialties. I ordered my usual - sausage, onions, mushrooms and a little extra tomato sauce ($15.75 for a large). I also ordered the lasagna and garlic bread ($6.00)...Mark and I were really hungry.

I placed the order on the phone. The person on the other line sounded busy, I didn't bother asking for a total.

Forty minutes later, the pizza arrived. Super hot and smelling super yummy. I dived in.

The pizza is almost paper thin and not too oily...YUM...it melted in my mouth. The crust was nicely toasted and not too thick like many pizza's in the area. I easily ate about three slices.

Mark dived into the lasagna. Served in a foil container, this pretty big piece of pie was doused in extra tomato sauce. Just the way Mark likes it...not me. I find it too saucy for my liking. The flavours of the cheese are easily lost.

If you are in the area or eat at any of the other locals, I highly suggest you try Classico. It is very different from what else is offered in the area.

PS. They also sell large salads and yummy wings...if that is what you like to accompany your pie.

The Pizza here is awesome, absolutely love the crust! I ordered specialty pizza #16 and the eggplant was cooked right and went so well with the goat cheese!

DON'T ORDER FROM OPENREST.COM!!
I ordered last night and my pizza never came. I called the restaurant they were closed.

I called Classico today and the man who answered said "I don't know why you order offline anyways?! Just call" He said they no longer accept orders from openrest and only from Just.eat.

I'm not going to try this place again. There are tons of other great pizza/Italian places in the city that can properly manage their business and not talk down to customers because they prefer to order offline!

openrest.com faxes the orders they get. then they never call a restaurant when an order is placed. maybe they were never informed that the order came.

Classico makes the best pizza on the planet. I have never been to another pizza place that compares.

WARNING!: Only order if you have at least the minimal social skills required to have a brief phone conversation with a stranger!
