Despite its Sbarro-ish appearance (a strip-mall location will do that), this slice shop packs oodles of charm. Normally pedestrian dishes boast surprisingly big flavors here, and gigantic slices of pizza sport a tangy housemade sauce and a thick focaccia-like crust. Likewise, peppery housemade meatballs make for hearty subs, and panini are stuffed with smoky bacon and fresh spinach. Canadian poutine makes an appearance on the menu, too, but take a cue from all the Pacino posters hanging on the walls and stick with the Italian stuff.
