Although Amaro Pizza's menu boasts an extensive array of traditional finger foods, a selection of familiar and gourmet-inspired pizzas continues to dominate its pages. The cooks can toss together one of their classica pies, such as the margherita classica or the potato alla cream with rosemary and parmesan, or diners can design their own using the 64 available toppings—including smoked salmon, prosciutto, and grilled eggplant—and 19 different polyhedrons of house-made dough. To accompany meals, the kitchen also fries up spicy and savoury orders of wings and layers garlic focaccia bread with extra-virgin olive oil and fresh herbs.
A staple of the city’s culinary scene since 1965, Frank’s Pizza House has earned the affection of appetistas with a lineup of nearly 20 pizzas. The Toronto pizza ($12.50) brings together pepperoni with its mortal enemies green peppers and mushrooms to forge a tasty truce, and the vegetariana pizza ($13.95) collects broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts for herbivore happiness. Pasta dishes include ravioli ($11.95), penne pasta with roasted peppers and grilled chicken ($12.95), and gnocchi with Italian sausage ($12.95). Frank’s Pizza House also offers desserts and drinks fresh from the family dessert farm, with tiramisu and espresso providing a one-two punch of post-entree paradise.
