To our wonderful Guests,
2020, what a year so far! 2020 has shown us to really hold close to what matters most to us.
As the Via Mercanti Owner, Romolo Salvati always says, " it’s simple, like the old days and with the best ingredients.
There is something important about preserving the simplicity of food. Simple does not
mean you miss out on a mouth-watering experience! Quality goes a long way. 2020 has
encouraged change amongst all of us. However, we are continuing to stay true to our roots by
providing simple Italian fare. We believe we are creating a sense of home and belonging. Allowing
our Italian culture and cuisine to create an atmosphere of love, which the world needs right now!
During these uncertain times, we have decided to pack up our 1503 Gerrard St E location and make
a BIG MOVE!!
Pizzeria Via Mercanti still exists on the EAST SIDE! We have taken over 124 Danforth Avenue
formerly known as Globe Bistro at Broadview and Danforth.
With physical distancing still a big part of today’s world, we decided to opt for a more
accommodating space during these times. With MULTIPLE levels you will feel more than safe
throughout your dining experience! Additional features include a beautiful private room and an
incredible ROOFTOP Patio!
Just a quick recap of who we are and what we are known for!
Via Mercanti is a small family-operated pizzeria and restaurant. Highly passionate about good
food and quality ingredients, Via Mercanti has been ranked on Joanne Kates’ top 100 list, won Best
in Chow’s hit show “Pizza Wars” and been featured on “You Gotta Eat Here!”
Over the years our distinctively Italian cuisine has been recognized with multiple awards.
Voted #1 Pizza in Ontario – 2018 – ICCO Pentola D’OroIn 2019, Pizzeria Via Mercanti’s pizza was
named one of the Top 50 Best Pizzas in the World! This ranking is compiled from pizzerias across
Australia, Europe, America, Canada, and dozens of other countries and cities around the globe!
Not only are we known for our Famous Neapolitan Pizza we are excited to announce the
return of our executive chefs from Italy. Executive Chef Antonio Romano will leave your palate
more than satisfied with the magic coming out of our kitchen. We can’t wait to see your faces light
up again! Not to mention our traditional desserts straight out of Amalfi! *DROOL* and perhaps the
greatest Tiramisu you’ve ever tasted!
With easy parking options in and around the Danforth and being a 3 minute walk from the
TTC we are looking forward to continuing to serve Toronto’s gorgeous East End! A true authentic
Italian Experience is waiting for you!
Lots of Love,
Pizzeria Via Mercanti Family
