At Rosso Pizzeria it’s all about flames and passion. According to the Food Network, it is one of Canada's best restaurants. Their tasty traditional offerings are sure to tantalize your taste buds.

With every bite of pizza you can feel the love out of which it was created. Instead of going with modern ovens that can cook a pizza in 90 seconds or less, the owners of Rosso opted to go the traditional route and use a Forno oven.

Rosso Pizzeria provides their customers with a great tasting pizza that can only be found in the Neapolitan tradition. Here’s what you will find at this restaurant.

The great thing about Rosso Pizzeria is the fact they offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. All items on their menu are made using fresh, organic ingredients from local sources. The dishes are so flavourful they literally draw the world to Italy. Some of the items on their menu include:
