We decided that we were craving for pizza, the age old comfort food that has always been there for us. LOVEPizza totally delivered and maybe even surpassed our expectations for pizza. It is the prefect place to go when hanging out with friends and is super easy to access through public transport or car. The atmosphere is light, airy, and comfortable. Some of us even decided to return again the next week to get another taste!
LOVEPizza is aesthetically pleasing and a great place to take pictures, catch up with friends, or even go with family on a night out! The decor is white and sleek; everything is clean and well organized. There are cute decor pieces on the wall that have quotes that are entertaining to read. We especially liked the “LOVEPizza rules” decal.
The music is not too loud or overpowering so we could hear each other well during conversation. We appreciated their music choice, which consisted of popular songs from 2008. It was a total throw back for us and we found it fun to talk about nostalgic topics.
You order your pizza like most fast food places at the front counter. The employees then walk you through what you would like in your pizza. The pizza is then baked in an oven. Afterwards, it is cut up and served to you. You can pick any toppings you would like from the fairly diverge selection they have. Some of our favourite garnishes were, parmesan cheese, chives, green onions, cilantro, and sun-dried tomato.
The food at LOVEPizza was great. We enjoyed being able to make our own pizzas or chose to have a pre-made combinations version. We were all pretty impressed with the versions we tried, and there is definitely something for everyone! Although we thoroughly enjoyed the food here, we reached the general consensus that LOVEPizza was just that: pizza, albeit really good pizza, however it was nothing mind blowing-ly different, and that is not always a bad thing.
All the pizzas were made with fresh ingredients, which we appreciated and made us feel less guilty about devouring pizzas for lunch. The pizzas were $13 but the plain cheese pizza we got was $9. We found it interesting to see a skinny pizza instead of a circular one.
The pizza pictured on the top left is the City Market that consisted of many vegetables and chicken. It was slightly too bitter for some of us but we generally enjoyed it. The base sauce was interesting and we liked how the chicken had it’s own unique flavour as well.
The “Make your own” pizza we tried is pictured on the top left. We enjoyed being able to pick our own toppings and tailoring it to our own tastes. There were many sauces and cheeses to pick from but we went for the most neutral sauce and the house blend for cheese. We got potato on ours which at first we thought was iffy, however we ended up enjoying. The potato became chewy after being put through the oven.
The bottom left pizza is the Plain Jane. This is the only pizza that we got that was on whole wheat bread. Although it did not rise as much, we enjoyed it just as much as the white dough. The Plain Jane made us enjoy all of the most basic components of pizza which we enjoyed. It was a plain cheese pizza.
The final pizza, on the bottom right, was The Q. It was a heavy blend of meat and barbecue sauces. This pizza is perfect for those who do not enjoy vegetables. The meat was flavourful.
Some of us had come back again the week after for another taste and had ordered the Meatatarian. Similar to The Q, the meat was flavourful as well as abundant as it is essentially a pizza dedicated to almost all of the possible meat options with with their tomato sauce. Since there were no variation in types of toppings (such as vegetables) it can get easily tiring. If you want a more balanced meal, then perhaps try adding a few toppings or try another but if you love meat (like we did), then it’s your pizza!
Our final verdict:
7/10 for service
8/10 for taste
9/10 for aesthetics
6/10 for price
LOVEPizza was definitely not expensive, but for a single individual sized portion of pizza, $13 may be a bit too much for people to spend regularly. For high quality, Neapolitan pizza, LOVEPizza is a good choice, but if price is a big determining factor for what you will be having for lunch, we recommend going for fast food pizza instead. This, however, is a great alternative to the everyday pizza you are exposed to everyday and we definitely recommend going here at least once!
