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.

    Totally disgusting to be seated beside the bathroom. My chair was at the door of the bathroom. There should be a door or don’t put a table there. People constantly walking by and it feels completely unsanitary. I have never seen anything like that anywhere in any restaurant in Toronto or New York or any other city . All to make extra money. I won’t go back because it was totally unpleasant to sit on top of the bathroom door and pay good money for a meal. Even the waiter said he had told them Multiple times to put a door and not seat people at the entrance to bathroom. .

    Food is always fantastic at QMP. We tried the feature pizza with sweet peppers, Serrano chilies and cotta. Very fresh tasting - a nice departure from our usual of (also delicious) Diavolo or the Gio Old School. The meatball appetizer was delish and you absolutely cannot beat the value of the kids' prix fixe! Staff was lovely and welcoming as always - they always make us feel like we're home!

    Despite reservation waited 15 min for seat. Waited excessively between appetizer and pizza arrival. Server apologetic. Pizza a bit undercooked in center, but still good. Hopefully service will be better next time.

    Extremely overpriced for what you get. The pizza came with one small piece of mozzarella on it, which was disappointing considering the pizza was cut into quarters. Would not recommend.

    This place use to have a lot cooler vibe. Now is feels very generic and a feeling of hustling people in and out. The service was blah, food was just ok. I would say the overall feeling is blah and bland. I guess that's what happens when you get too big or start catering to the family dinner crew. Not authentic anymore. Sorry - I hear pizza libretto has got a much better vibe.

    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.
