I ended up hearing about Novo from a friend who invited me along. I remember reading about them in the Globe and Mail and so I figured I would give it a shot and see what their pizza is like.
First off, if you're expecting it to be an American style pizza, you might as well not come, their pizza is focused on the Italian style which is having a good crust, focusing on quality ingredients but not dousing a pizza with it, and letting ingredients come out with their own natural flavours. For example the sauce is not heavily salted so it may not be for everyone, but has a nice tomato citrus flavour that comes through.
I had the Capricciosa, which I really loved. I loved how it was hearty and that the toppings worked well on the pizza. But surprisingly, which I usually don't enjoy eating, was the crust, it was chewy and soft. And to me the best way to eat their pizza is with your hands. They also slice the pizza for you, which I know for some purist it's a no no, but when you have a table of people it's easy than tearing it apart and fumbling with the cutlery.
I'm pretty happy with the pizza here, and am looking forward to coming back in the evening. The owner told me that it's even better at night once the oven has been warmed up for a few hours.
