Wood oven pizza in Ottawa?

I live here but haven't yet come across a good place to get thin-crust wood oven pizza. Any suggestions?

There must be others on Preston Street, but Johnny Farina's on Elgin does it for me, http://www.johnnyfarina.com/

I have eaten at Johnny Farina's and with all due respect to others it does not do it for me at all. It is not memorable pizza.

I did a web search and only located Forno Antico on Bronson. I drive by this place regularly and see wood piled outside the door, so it must be geniune. I have not eaten there so can't say for sure, but the reviews on line are quite good.

It's not the best location in the world, but if you really crave wood pizza, give it a go.

Hi Travelbug4307,

La Favorita on Preston is home to Ottawa's original woodburning pizza oven (since 1986). Check out their Website at www.lafavoritapreston.com

Also as an Ottawa local you might be interested in two other Foodie Websites with lots of information on Restaurants and such in the Ottawa area:
