Pastizza New To Market Street

Taste of Market Street welcomes Pastizza (http://www.pastizza.ca/) to the neighbourhood.
The restaurant is so unique, brewing their own wine in house. This restaurant has the same owners as Mistura and Splendido.

The service is superb; being greeted and seated immediately, having a very attentive waitress, filling up our empty water glasses and having a great memory remembering our order without writing it down. The General Manager checked in on us, making sure the customer service is above satisfactory.

The Pasta Caulifiori was excellent. This is a vegetarian dish. The portion was a perfect size full of flavour and the right amount of cheesiness.The sauce is creamy. I don’t mind el dente noodles, however if you’re not a fan I would suggest to ask them to cook the noodles longer with this dish.

The Pasta Vongole was delicious. The sauce is very light with a kick of spice. Perfect portion with great seafood taste.

I loved this dish. It’s so unique, with two meatballs laying on the sauce and the pastrami similar to small pizza slices. The mustard was homemade which was a perfect addition to the pastrami. My favourite pickles are gerkins. The dish looked small upon delivery but it was the perfect size.

The molten cake was the perfect ending to the evening. It was the best molten cake, I’ve ever had. The outside was crispy on the edges, meanwhile the inside melted in your mouth like butter. I almost licked the plate clean.

The only thing missing on the menu is tea.

Overall rating 4.5****
