This week on DineSafe: 241 Pizza, Barcaro Italian, Flatiron and Firkin, Mai Thai, MBCo, Oakwood Café, Oja, The Spot

This week on DineSafe, there was a chance you got more than an extra pie with your pizza purchase up by Jane and Finch. Yes, 2-4-1 Pizza got the red for an apparent insect infestation, as did Flatiron and Firkin down by Church and Front for a rodent problem; this was not the week for chain eats, in other words. MBCo was also on the DineSafe offenders list this week, carrying on its unsettling trend of repeated conditional passes. Here's a closer look at some of the reports on DineSafe this week.
