One of Leslieville's most well-known heritage buildings is getting a new tenant after the departure of Skwish at 1192 Queen St E.
Lambretta Pizzeria is slated to open this fall with brick-oven Roman-style pizza and a menu of Italian favourites including pastas, frittis, salumi and cheese platters, salads and desserts.
"We’re very excited to join your community and we look forward to participating in neighbourhood events," says owner Celina Blanchard.
The launch in Leslieville will be the second location for Lambretta. Its original shop on Roncesvalles Ave. is popular in the west end neighbourhood and its authentic pies with light, crispy crusts have been listed among the city's best by Toronto Life. The star attraction is a brick oven that can fire up to temperatures of 900°F and cook pizzas in 90 seconds.
Lambretta Pizzeria gets plenty of shout outs for its family forward atmosphere, kids menu and play area with enough toys to keep kids entertained. No word yet on whether that same inclusiveness will be carried over to the Leslieville location but given the characteristic of the neighbourhood it would be a wise choice.
Stay tuned for an opening date at 1192 Queen St. E. Check out lambrettapizzeria.ca for more.
