In the Toronto centric war of the Neapolitan pizza restaurants, Queen Margherita pizza would always get my vote. Not only is their pizza always freshly prepared in their wood burning ovens with a deliciously blistered crust, but the restaurants themselves are beautiful spaces.
For a date night, Queen Margherita is a sure bet for a romantic atmosphere and excellent food. I went to their Dundas W and College location at 772 Dundas Street W. Check out other locations here.
This location was bustling on a Saturday night. On the main level you’ll find the bar, and to get to the main dining area you head down a short flight of stairs into their large open dining room. The best bang for your buck (and your stomach) is their prix fixe menu. For $29, you get your choice of appetizer, any pizza and any dessert.
I spotted Arancini on the app menu and couldn’t resist ordering it. The Arancini were fried into perfect balls and filled with rice, mushrooms, parmigiano cheese and caramelized onions. They were packed with flavour and were deliciously cheesy.
My dinner date went with the Calamari. They were lightly breaded and served with a classic marinara sauce.
Having only had pizza here before, we were both impressed with our apps and were looking forward to the pizza!
I had the Calabrese pizza with spicy Cacciatore sausage with garlic, black pepper and a generous sprinkling of Parmigiano cheese. The sausage was delightfully spicy. Mmm.
My date had the Dominator topped with fennel sausage, lots of rapini, smoked mozzarella and fried chili oil. Perfection! My favourite part of their pies is definitely their red sauce and chewy crust.
Last but not least, is dessert! We finished up the evening with a Nutella mousse and a chocolate torte. A sweet finish.
