A little surprised to discover that this authentic new pizzeria in Kensington market was accessible due to the very apparent stairs to the bathroom and seemingly tight space inside. However, the waiter was kind enough to show me the accessible washroom on the main level which is also the way to the spacious dining area in the back. The floors are level, however heavily textured.

The downside of this restaurant would definitely be the very limited parking in the area and the heavily crowded sidewalks. The sidewalks are not wide to begin with and signs displaying the daily specials create an obstruction. There is also a slight uneven ramp up to the doorway. The doorway width is 32 inches.

Parking here may be a little tricky. There are a few lots on Spadina, east of Kensington. If you are taking the subway, St. Patrick station is not accessible so Queen's Park would be the next best option.
