GATTO Wood Oven PIZZA
I really enjoyed my pizza at Gatto. The service was excellent and very friendly. It was a Friday night so there were a number of families having dinner. I had my 2 young grandchildren with me and the server was particularly kind to them. Our pizzas arrived in record time.
Unfortunately, there was a table with 2 young undisciplined children who thought they were at a playground or McDonalds. The 2 mothers were blind to their children's behaviour and actions for a fine dining restaurant. This made for an unpleasant atmosphere for the other people in the restaurant and the servers too.
As the restaurant filled up the noise level understandably increased. I loved the music that was playing but my suggestion might be to lower the volume so it's not competing with the conversations in the room.
Would highly recommend. Food is excellent and staff is very pleasant and nice.
Very pleased! I went with a friend for a much needed catchup. Here is the general consensus on the food we ordered: olives (app)--could have been warmer and more, full sizes olives. We got a lot of small pieces. Bruschetta (app)--4 pieces loaded up and delicious, very nice. Pizza (margherita)--could have been hotter but overall very good. 4 slices so this is perfect for 2 people. Lasagna (truffle mushroom)--woah, this was seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten in a Toronto restaurant. Or anywhere. SO GOOD. 1 order was perfect for 2 but could have been stretched out for 3 or 4 if you are ordering other things. It is super rich--probably not the kind of thing you'd want to eat alone unless you are planning to take half home. We ended on the flour-less chocolate cake which my friend thought was to die for. I agreed it was good but next time I'd try something else for dessert. All of this plus a beer and two wines was $120 which makes it a really great value.
What a wonderful surprise! We did not expect to have such a wonderful restaurant in Bloor West Village. The wood oven pizza was aromatic with the right amount of toppings and the crust was just the right thickness and the size was perfect for sharing, we ordered the 2312 Bloor St version, it was truly delicious! For appetizers we had the soup of the day an intensely flavoured Tomato Bisque (which could easily have been a meal in itself) and the Carpaccio and Arugula salad with a heavenly balsamic drizzle. We can’t wait to come back and try the many other selections on the menu. The surroundings were very comfortable with soft music playing in the background. A great place for entertaining or for a quick stopover. Staff was efficient and friendly. Thank you Gatto for a wonderful experience!
Last day visiting a friend from out of town. We had taken her to GATTO and she loved it. We went again tonight before she leaves. She picked it
Such yummy pizza! Here's a pizza place that understands the importance of crust!
Fantastic pizza and service. It was a really nice touch giving all of the female guests a rose on Valentine’s Day. Will definitely return
Empty restaurant when we got there for a weekday lunch but filled up quickly. Service was attentive, pizzas were really good, red wine perfect temperature when served. We will go back again
A “go to” in BWV. Great for the kids too.
Everything was good except ambience this time. The lights were on full and with LED, it makes it very bright! Lowering these would contribute to greater ambience, as it was when we visited one other time.
Food and service were both amazing. Highly recommended!
The server was pushy, obnoxious... She wanted to sell cocktails, mineral water and desserts...
The presentations on the pizza were not appetizing and the dough was soggy....It is too bad because the restaurant has potentiel.
Love this place. Great wood oven pizza, good with the kids, friendly service.
I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try different pizzas. Service was well-timed and friendly.
So SO good! Everything from the ambiance to the service to the food itself was amazing! Would definitely recommend anyone who likes Italian food to check this gem out!
Excellent service and food. Lunch special of soup and pizza was tasty.
Friday night casual date night. Pizza was awesome. Wine overpriced but ok (ordered the Tuscan). Service was a bit slow to start but ok after that.
It was loud with kids such that we couldn’t hear ourselves for a bit but they cleared out 45 min into our dinner so it was ok... not the restaurant’s fault. What was the restaurant’s fault however was that we did have a reservation but the only tables available when we arrived were, in my opinion, the worst tables in the house: right by the door or right in the path of all of the servers. Not sure why we bothered getting reservations. When someone arrived after us, they we’re magically offered seats at the back (away from the door and the loud kids) but these seats were not offered to us?!?!!!!!!!!! WTH!?
Hard to find promotional deals or coupons
Disappointing pizza and poor service.
Food: The restaurant was out of milk (?) on a Friday at 6:30pm so one guest couldn't have any with their coffee, which wasn't an ideal start. Other guests at the table ordered Cola and Ginger Ale and a can was handed to them like a take-out order. The pizza was okay depending on the type, the Murder She Wrote pizza was particularly bad, with thick sliced mortadella placed on top of the pizza in giant rolls. The server raved about how this was the spiciest pizza and yet zero spice was detectable.
Service: Our server was consistently rushing past our table without even making eye contact or checking in for the entirety of the meal. One of our guests was new to the English language and the server laughed at her pronunciation of one of the items on the menu. It took almost 30 minutes to get a staff from the restaurant to provide water. Even getting the bill took an additional 20 minutes, which in a small space with no more than 10 tables filled, is unacceptable.
Will definitely not be returning!
Nice restaurant located in a very good neighborhood. The pizza is amazing.
The menu could have the translation to English language, at least for the basic ingredients like type of cheese, tomato sauce, meat, because it can be confusing for those who does not understand a minimum of Italian.
Our waiter was outstanding!
Food was yummy but the service was awful! They told us there was no sparkling water and then gave the table next to us a bottle after we asked. Then we waited over an hour for our pizza and overhead the server saying she "forgot" to place the order but no one every came over to our table to tell us what was going on. After all this, no discount on our bill. Wouldn't go back for this reason.
Service was great. Food was not good. No flavor at all.
The perfect place for a family dinner on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was inviting and the open windows to the street made it pleasant. Very friendly service. Yummy pizza.
The food was amazing. The oven is small so it takes some time, but worth the wait
Great place, constant turn over of customers. The pizza was one of the best I've have in a very long time. Strongly recommend it.
We made a reservation for 7 which was a good idea as there are a lot of walk in customers looking for a spot and while it is a comfortable size, it is not that big. Service was pleasant and the young lady was very attentive and offered water and drinks right away and gave us time to ponder the menu. We split 2 pizza's and a salad between 3 of us and it was quite sufficient. The Bloor West pizza was especially good. It is nice to have a local alternative with really good food in the area. Will definitely go again.
The service was quick, friendly and efficient. The pizza tasted very good but the main problem was the crust. It was chewy and very soggy in the centre. Nice combination of ingredients.
Loved everything up until the waiter almost confused a calzone with a canolli. And do you really close at 9 pm? Why bring the lights on as if it's last call when we've barely finished our coffee? Why the rush?
Great pizza and great service! A definite go too and a great addition to the neighborhood
Excellent pizzas in an environment where you can have a conversation without the usual loud noise of most restaurants.
A solid wood oven pizza place. The beef carpaccio was great too. Servers were pleasant and attentive. No complaints. It was busy, I was surprised. Be sure to make a reservation on the weekend.
Everything was perfect.
I love the food at Gatto but this experience was horrible. First of all, server was very very rude and yelled at us to STOP as soo as we came in. Second he was arguing with another customer because that customer felt disrespected too. So that already ruined the ambiance before we even sat down. It took so long to get our orders taken and also for it to arrive. Once it arrived, we asked for chilli oil and the server got the leftover oil on a mini bowl from the other table who just left and gave it to us. It still had their pizza crumbs on it. Very disappointed. They offered free dessert for the trouble which i almost didnt take if their tiramisu wasn’t so good. Angry customer from earlier came back because he got overcharged, so another yelling match. I’m still contemplating if i will review on yelp because we actually like this place and the owner was very nice whenever she was there. This time she wasn’t which is pobably why it was chaotic.
Excellent neighbourhood pizza venue. Been there a few times since it recently opened and look forward to eating here soon again! The only criticism is that they should probably add a couple of vegetarian options.
Great for kids!
Good casual spot. Bloor St pizza was really good! Crust is yummy!
Customer Service 💯
Their exquisite pizzas and the taste were amazing! We absolutely loved everything about GATTO Wood oven Pizza! I highly recommend it.
A great addition to Bloor West Village.
We went at noon hour. Our friend couldn’t make it after all so it was just the two of us. Our server was attentive and prompt and anxious to please. And we liked the decor of the restaurant. The food was ho-hum. My rigatoni was bland and boring, and my husband’s pizza was “okay”. It just needs to be a little more interesting as the food selection was good, including the desserts and drinks. Good luck!
