With lineups stretching out the door, Pizzeria Libretto is one of the hottest plates in town. And we can think of plenty of reasons why:
Finger-lickingly good deep-fried Buttermilk Calamari a la Romesco ($9).
Wonderfully doughy Neapolitan pizza with splodges of mozzarella, wafer thin Parma ham, plump cherry tomatoes and fresh basil ($15).
Charming staffour waitress Lisa was one of the friendliest people weve met in yonks.
A deliciously light homemade panna cotta with blueberry compote ($7, Lisas suggestionto die for).
The atmosphere laidback with a constant stream of bustle.
The décorlight and airy with hits of lime green walls and eye-catching lighting.
The crowda mix of Ossington hipsters, families and Italiani veri.
