My friend Glenn introduced me to Village Pizza Co. in Cabbagetown. It's on one of the little side streets with several other interesting-looking restaurants. I had driven down this street before but not really noticed the restaurants. The atmosphere in Village Pizza is very hip, with some modern art in addition to the obligatory televisoin.
We started off with a salad that was very fresh and well-prepared. Our pizza came with Italian sausage, mushrooms, and green olives. It was a quite good representative of New York style thin-crust pizza. We finished off the meal with some gelato, which was excellent. I've enjoyed myself every time I've been in Cabbagetown and Village Pizza continued the trend.
