Dig in to a gourmet pizza pie in Yorkville

Known for its upscale boutiques and swank hotels, Yorkville is also home to several fine dining spots that offer delicious pizzas. If you’re looking to wind down with some food and drinks after a long day spent exploring the area, head to one of these local restaurants for a delicious slice (or four).

Caffe Di Portici

101A-6 Scollard St, Toronto, ON M5R 1E9

The best pizzas are often the simplest and this Italian spot in the heart of Yorkville epitomizes that philosophy. These high-quality pizzas are handmade from whole wheat or white pizza dough and the sauces are made with fresh tomatoes, meat and kale pesto. Caffe di Portici uses fresh, seasonal ingredients, so check back for new offerings throughout the year.

Trattoria Nervosa

75 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1B8

This mainstay of the Yorkville neighbourhood has hosted a number of celebrities over the years. The surroundings are simple and elegant while still retaining some rustic charm, a characteristic that carries over to their pizzas. They serve traditional thin-crust pies baked at super-high temperatures to ensure a wonderfully blistered crust, all perfectly topped with things like prosciutto, basil and fresh mozzarella.

Dimmi Bar & Trattoria

140 Cumberland St, Toronto, ON M5R 1A8

If your perfect date night includes pizza, you won’t do much better than Dimmi Bar, where fine Italian cocktails and warm ambiance will help set the mood. When it comes to pizza, they have an extensive selection of thin-crust pies. Toppings range from smoked salmon with arugula to a white pizza with gorgonzola, red peppers, figs and honey. The pizzas aren't huge, so you can order a couple to share.
