Dinner at Pizzeria Defina (Toronto Roncesvalles)

Had dinner the other night with neighbours/friends at a great pizzeria at 321 Roncesvalles called Pizzeria Defina.  What a hopping place.  We got there at 6:00 and it was already busy. The restaurant is not huge but has a great atmosphere. We all ordered a wood fired pizzas as it was really the house specialty.

Mine was a wild mushroom pizza with seasonal mushrooms, oyster, cremini, fior di latte, shallots, grana padano, tarragon, truffle oil – all for $17.  It was huge! I managed half and took the other half home for lunch the next day.  It was still good the following day. Loretta and I shared a caesar salad and there was certainly enough for two. Ginny had the red wine with her dinner and said it was one of the best she had ever tasted. Unfortunately it is not sold in the liquor store.

Stew and Gord had the meaty style pizzas which were really good. Loretta had the pesto and chicken pizza which also tasted great.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant. My only slight negative remark was that our server was either overworked or just off a bit as she seemed to be forcing herself to be nice to us and not look like she was rushing us (which didn’t alway succeed).

  1. Ugh, I hate that rushed feeling or fake friendliness at a restaurant. It really affects your dinner to some degree! Regardless, it sounds like you all had a great time together and it’s always a big plus, to have leftovers….especially of delicious pizza! YUM!
