Description: In the heart of the historic St. Lawrence Market, G For Gelato and Pizza Bar serves the finest gelato in Toronto, made with recipes passed down in the Polsinelli family for years. From classic roasted pistachio to creative flavor pairings like coconut basil, blueberry lavender, and London Fog (vanilla and Earl Grey tea), we make our gelato using the freshest ingredients and source many seasonal fruits and veggies from local farmers markets. In our cozy, rustic space, we also serve hand-tossed thin crust pizzas as well as foccacia paninis, frittatas, pastas, and fresh salads. Start your morning with our hand-crafted coffee and espresso drinks paired with a sweet pastry, or sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch with our house favorite funghi pizza, a white pizza topped with mixed mushrooms, fresh arugula, and a drizzle of truffle oil. Need to bring a taste of Italy to your next celebration or corporate luncheon? We also cater and deliver at your convenience. For a sweet break in your day, sit and stay with us at G For Gelato and Pizza Bar for traditional Italian dishes, quiet conversations, and the best gelato in Toronto. We hope to see you soon!

This gelato is excellent! ( and I have eaten a lot of gelato in Italy over the years! ). A family run business based on family recipes - with lots of modern flavour combinations. I like it best when the sister / owners are in the cafe. Super coffee. Just north of the st. Lawrence market and across from St. James Gardens. Recommended.

They have a large selection of excellent gelato. The espresso is good also. We did not try the food. I wish we could rate in categories as this place is number one for what it offers but hardly the number on restaurant in Toronto.

The gelato is really good, very big portions but I'm not sure about the service the attendants did not seem friendly.

Having lived in the city for almost two years now this was our first visit this establishment. What a great place. We enjoyed wonderful cappuccinos and a prosciutto panini with fresh mozzarella and arigula. Would highly recommend a visit here and the pizza and pasta menu looked delicious. A wonderful selection of gelato, cupcakes and macaroons are also on offer. Will certainly be back.

We ate in G for Gelato one evening during a two day stop over in Toronto. It was ideally located across the road from our hotel the Holiday in Express.

Pizzas are out of this world and the ice cream was superb!

My only very minor grumble was the lack of two way conversation from the chap who served us. Maybe he didn't understand my English accent or maybe he was having a bad day! But it was noticeable.

Visit this place for great food!
