Located in the heart of Roncy village, Defina serves great pizza in a tight location. Service is crisp, but the size of the store takes away from the quality of the food. Diners should have a tolerance for noise and getting bumped. Only serves wine...More

Well I haven't tried every pizza in TO but it is hard to imagine a restaurant serving the pizza combinations as Defina's has on their menu. The duck confit, roasted pear and arugula with truffle oil is awesome. However there are several other unusual toppings...More
