Davisville Village: New on Mount Pleasant Viva Napoli, Authentic Neapolitan pizza

Ever since the opening of Pizzeria Libretto, Toronto has seen the rise of a completely welcome and completely delicious Neapolitan epidemic. Queen Margherita opened in the east end last year; then came Pizza e Pazzi. Just last month, Viva Napoli opened on Mount Pleasant by first time restaurateur and long-time pizza aficionado Giustino Iorio. He admits that he was inspired by Libretto, but for him, Da Michele, the legendary pizzeria from Naples, is the true standard.

The concept: Iorio wants his customers to experience Naples in Toronto. Yes, that means Neapolitan pizza, but it also means Neapolitan music, staff and d├ęcor. Iorio lived in Naples for 11 years and returns there frequently for pleasure, business and of course, pizza, which he says gives him an edge. An authentic Neapolitan pizza should be served by an authentic Neapolitan, he says.

  1. I wanted to love this little neighbourhood joint, but the pizza was soggy and average at best on all three visits. Disappointing.
