Pizzeria Libretto joins Porchetta & Co. on King West
The King West strip is starting to rival Ossington for restaurant openings, and Pizzeria Libretto is the latest addition to the neighbourhood. Right next door to the street’s new Porchetta & Co. location, the 100-seat Libretto outpost (the mini-chain’s fourth location) serves familiar favourites like the cremini mushroom pizza and fried ricotta gnocchi, but also a few new menu items, like grilled octopus. The restaurant also participates in MealShare, and for every duck confit pizza ordered, Libretto provides one meal to someone in need. Libretto King is open daily for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
Grilled octopus with ‘nduja sausage, mini potatoes and salsa verde. $13
