Danforth Pizza HouseDanforth Pizza House makes some of the best pizza east of the DVP. Take-out is the name of the game here as the service is quick and the prices are reasonable.

Danforth Pizza house has the best Pizza however everything is very old school, no delivery, and if the phones get rammed with orders expect busy signals for at least a half hour.
Top notch ingredients and top notch taste

Extremely rude owner. Warning: no affection may be shown in the restaurant. Gave my girlfriend a hug and he kicked us out. Toppings are extremely sparse and low quality. Pizza is not authentic, way too much crust.

Personally I believe this is the best Pizza in the city. This is by no means a gormet Pizzaria. The shop itself is a mear hole in the wall one man shop with absoluetely no curb appeal and a cold atmostphere inside. - I know, once you've made the sale, stop selling...

I admit it may not be for everyone... but that being said there are many different opinions when it comes to food.

The pizza itself is litterally unlike any other pizza you've tried. I know that is a bold statement, but it is most definitely true. Though I admit that the toppings themselves are not of great quality. That is hardly where your attention will be focused. The dough/crust is hand made and so authentically italian it beings be back with every bite. The crust of this Pizza is akin to the fine Italian breads in bakeries. Angelo bakes it the same every time, just perfect. Lastly, the cheese... Wow. This is the x factor of Angelo's masterpieces. Every pizza gets two handfuls of curded mozzarella. Some may find it greasy, unfortunately that's just the way it is.

An absolute 5 out of 5 food and a 5 out of 5 for experience. Although the atmosphere may be viewed as cold, its very authentic and even more consistant than McDonalds.

When I first went to Danforth Pizza House it was on the advice of an Italian neighbour. The pizza reminded me of Pasquales pizza on Wilson Ave in Downsview 40yeats ago. Angelo is a kind man of few words who insists on original old style ingredients. Old style pizza with returning customers for 30 or 40 years. I've been ordering for 18.

Get a room, axe grinder. Best pizza in the city, period.

Pizza was pretty good - reminded me of Libretto, but thicker. Brace yourself for a total lack of customer service and the absence of all "restaurant social cues" - just an old man in a ramshackle space on the Danforth making pizzas.

Believe the hype. This place is amazing. Limited topping choice but fresh crust and sauce to die for.

I don't think it is the best in the city. I haven't had the opportunity to strike off every pizzaria ever heard about out east. But it's got something many places lack. A no-nonsense, grand mama's style pizza, and people that have talked about it for decades.

I grew up outside this city, in the heart of old town that has had suburbia spring up around it and choke the neighborly out of the 'hood. I have worked off and on for many pizzarias over the years in the east end, and you hear about places from customers. Danforth Pizza is one. Pizza Gigi slices (late night crowds jacked it), Bitondi's panzo are two more that I feel are worthy of the talk I have had bending my ear over the years.

Now, Danforth Pizza is a thirty minute walk from where I live, and I walk the extra mile if and when I feel like it. Its a welcome opportunity I never enjoyed, and there are plenty more in the city I will eat my way through.

Hey Danforth resident, your RIP is premature! A note on the door says he is in rehabilitation now after the stroke.

Wassamatta for you?

I can confirm that Angelo has indeed passed away, about 2 months after his stroke. RIP. :-(

Angelo has been in my family for 4 generations, special pizza place for me and my family for sure, i lived around the corner from it, and it was a family tradition to go there as a kid on Saturdays to get Danforth Pizza house, my sister and I used to go pick it up and Angelo would give us coin for the PAC man machine even played a few games with us until the pizza was ready, he was a sweet sweet man, the tradion carried on in my own house many weekends and weekdays it was Danforth Pizza night. and Angelo knew my voice and of course our order by heart. I will miss him dearly, I hope Marcello will carry his legacy for a little whole! my Deepest Condonlences to the whole family a forever Danforth Pizza fan!
