Neapolitan pizza is a specialty of Pizzeria Via Mercanti on Toronto’s charming Elm Street. Along with pastas, paninos, antipasti and desserts, you get an authentic Italian dining experience, with everything fresh and made in house.
Pizzeria Via Mercanti is a family owned restaurant with over 30 years of experience. Our authentic Neapolitan pizza was voted Best in Ontario!
Pizza was authentic and had sufficient toppings. The cook on the pizza was also very good. Service was okay but not outstanding. Would recommend the pizza!
I didn’t feel the love in the food. I had the pizza and the crust on the edge was good, but the center of the pizza was soggy and didn’t hold it’s shape when it was picked up. The topping on the pizza we’re bland and missed that umami flavour and proper seasoning from elements such as Parmesan cheese or sea salt.
Very nice A good place with à pretty manager.. We like very much
Food tasted great. Service was not good. No free refills on soda (not expected). Got 1 refill, 12oz glass at most. Cost me $6 for a Diet Coke.
Great place, great vibe, great service, authentic Italian pizza, will go back any day
Was a last minute choice for dinner based on it was available. Off on a side street this busy spot is rightfully a neighbourhood favourite. It was busy and a bit noisy. We sat immediately. Service was a bit bumpy but reminded me of service in Italy so I guess a bit authentic that way too. Food was great. We had buffalo mozzarella, shared a pizza and fried cheese to start. Dinner was lasagna, seafood pasta special, bolognese and a tomato chicken pasta. All were really good. Prices were very fair for portions and quailty. A great option for a casual night out for really good Italian. Will definitely be back.
Food was ok. Wait time was also not too long. However, the major issue was one of the dishes (pasta) had a big piece of plastic in it, that had clearly fallen in while it was being prepared. The wait staff simple took it away and offered a coffee as an apology. Felt like a bit more could have been done here.
Loved the pizza! It definitely is how a pizza should be! Will be coming here again and again for sure!
Always great food but the noise level was extremely high with the crowd and music
