The menu at this Leslieville favourite is simple, sweet and utter perfection. The headlining pizza is stripped down to its foundations: crust, sauce, cheese, toppings. Each is singularly flawless. The zucchini has a wonderfully smoky flavour, the Ontario-made mozzarella could give a lesson on why we love cheese, and the heat-fired crust resides gloriously at the intersection between crispy and chewy. The wines and Italian beers are lovely, well-priced and worthy companions to the solids of the meal. The atmosphere is dynamic: an airy, open space overseen by friendly servers who take their efforts to please seriously. The huge windows on the second floor afford a charming view of the streetcar barn. more...

    Great place

    Very much a cut above the generic type of pizza sold in so much of north America. This is gourmet, with the decor and service to go along with it. They seem to be always busy, which is a good sign. Can be a bit noisy, but they are vibrant and alive. Great place.

    We had a great time! Took my twin boys out for Valentine’s lunch for their first time having pizza (who turned 1 the next day) we sat upstairs and the natural light was great. Lots of room for us to spread out!

    This is our favourite place and while it's kid friendly - it's so relaxing and cozy. The service is always so personal and so amazing and we love the atmosphere. Especially on a snowy, winter day. It's our go-to, comfort food place!

    This is not our first visit as we give in to our cravings for their pizza on a regular basis. We are always greeted warmly and never have a problem with our reservation. The upper level can be noisy at times but it's fun to be in a lively place. The service is attentive and well paced. They make one of the best Negroni's in the city. The food was fantastic. We had the arugula and the radicchio salads and both were just perfectly dressed. We shared the meatball appetizer and found them tender and spicy. Of course the star of the dinner was our pizzas which arrived hot and beautifully blistered. With some great red wine you can't go wrong. We also enjoyed dessert, tiramisu and cheesecake both of which were prepared simply and in the classic way. Why mess with perfection?

    QMP is our go-to Friday night destination, and not without reason! The service is always great and the food is delicious! We are thrilled to be not only tolerated with our kids, but welcomed! QMP is one of the restaurants that everyone in our family seems to be excited to return home to when we are away. QMP always gets our weekend off on a perfect relaxed foot!

    Waiter was a bit too persistent in pushing the prix fixe menu, which was way more food than we wanted to eat. Pizzas were good, authentic Italian style. Better than Terroni, but not up to the standards of Libretto. Salad okay, calamari not as crispy as I'd like.

    QMP is our 'comfort food' go-to on the weekends during the fall and winter. It's so cozy and we've come to know the staff who are always so friendly and accommodating. The food? It goes without saying that it's the best pizza AND pasta we've had in TO. We look forward to our weekly dinner at QMP (Leslieville)

    We celebrated our oldest son's 10th birthday - on a busy night during a busy time of year - and service, food, atmosphere couldn't have been better - and they made our 10 year old (who's birthday often gets overshadowed during this Holiday season), they made him feel like a VIP - a view of the wood over - candle in his dessert - terrific.

    Service was fine once seated but obviously you were short staffed as I waited at the front desk for 3 minutes+ before anyone arrived. One pizza was burnt-it was replaced quickly but should not have been served in the first place. Our waitress was quite pleasant but she seemed to be alone on the floor.

    Service was outstanding as always and pizzas were fabulous as usual! Tried two of the new appetizers (grilled calamari and meatballs). The calamari was okay but the meatballs were a bit dry and not very flavourful - we asked for tomato sauce to go with it which made them much better. The previous (large single) meatball appetizer was outstanding and the fried calamari is also exceptional, so we’ll probably have that next time!

    Queen Margherita Pizza was there in Leslieville at the start of the Neapolitan pizza craze. Locals love this place because they take reservations and because the pizza is damn good.

    Toronto pizza joints with a cult following

    This Leslieville stalwart is named for a former Italian Queen, which makes sense since the popular spot is the undisputed ruler of the east end when it comes to pizza. Ingredients here are locally sourced or unfailingly authentic; the San Marzano DOP tomatoes are grown in the rich volcanic soil of Italy’s Campania region. The namesake Margherita pie is fired in a custom-built wood oven (imported from Naples of course) and then topped with tomato, Ontario fior di latte and fresh handpicked basil.
