Gastronomy 101: Levetto

Canada Canon S110 Food Gastronomy 101 Toronto

The hub and I celebrated our anniversary a week or so ago and have decided to go out for dinner. Unfortunately, his first choice of restaurant (where they serve good Neapolitan-style pizza) was fully booked. He did some research and we have opted to go to Levetto at 940 College Street. The hub was at first skeptical – he wanted to have a fancy dinner, but I told him that I’m down to any food places we’ll go. Plus, I wanted to try new places being new to this city.

And boy we’re glad we did. The romana pizzas we had were fresh, light, and crispy. The serving sizes were good (we shared two small pizzas). But let us not forget the dessert. We had tiramisu and initially we thought we might get a small ramekin for a serving (considering the price). Instead we got a big salad bowl of tiramisu which we were more than happy to engulf. The lady fingers tasted like it was freshly soaked so it had that soft and crunchy texture to it. Oh and the espresso taste was delicious. It was just pure bliss. We are definitely coming back, maybe to try the pasta. 🙂
