A family business and amazing pizza! the wooden oven makes a big difference!! )
We recently moved to the neighbourhood, and have been wanting to try Viccino Pizzeria since we got here. Based on the fabulous food and great service we had, this place will most definitely become one of our favourites!
When trying a new pizza place, we typically order a basic pepperoni-mushroom-mozzarella pie to judge the quality of the ingredients and pizza dough. The mushrooms were fresh-cut, the pepperoni was good quality, the tomato sauce -- of which there was plenty -- was great too. And that dough... Oh that dough! This dough was one of the best and freshed dough we've had in Canada so far. When you can smell and taste the yeast in pizza dough, and when it's baked in a wood oven, it's like a taste of heaven!
The Cesar salad that came with the "Dinner special" was nice and fresh, although the vinaigrette tasted like it may have been purchased instead of home-made. We asked for bacon bits on the side, and were presented with a nice order of FRESH bacon bits right off the skillet. What a treat!
The special also included chicken wings, which we almost forgot about when the fabulous pizza arrived on the table. I think they also cook (or at least finish) their wings in the wood-oven. These were delicious.
Overall, the experience was great. They opened only recently, and are still waiting for the L.L.B.O. license, but I hope they are here to stay. Great food, good service, reasonable prices, and close to home... what more can we ask for?
they finally have their liquer license. amazing place to go with family friends or loved ones.
loved it, friendly people and awesome fire with food and smell. what more could you want with some Chianti?
