Very friendly staff, incredible atmosphere, with extremely good food!! The only complaint I have is that it was a little cramped on the inside and it is a little higher in price, but it is definitely worth it, the ingredients taste super fresh and you can see them making the pizzas right in front of you. I would definitely recommend pizzeria Toro to anybody looking to have a nice low-key dinner in Durham. I will definitely be coming back!! Pictured left (1) to right (2): 1.) Sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone 2.) Spicy lamb meatball, kale, rustic b.p

Toro has not only the best pizzas in town, but also proudly boasts delicious cocktails in a casual open setting. The long wooden tables in the center bring the whole place together. Service is attentive and friendly, we spilled a drink and immediately three servers helped us clean the mess up.

The fennel sausage pizza is the best pizza I’ve ever had (don’t forget the chili oil!). We also ordered the ricotta dumplings and the combination of flavors with the squash, hazelnuts, and kale pesto was heavenly! The Spicy Salumi pizza was okay, but it had too many onions for my personal preference. The atmosphere was great and we sat right next to the pizza oven. The only thing that could’ve made this five stars is if the hostess wasn’t so rude. We agreed that she must have been having a bad night. Not your typical pizza place as the prices are high, but definitely worth it!

Upscale dining experience with very reasonably priced food! The Shiitake Mushroom Pizza and the Soft Egg pizza were delicious! As for dessert, we got all 3 desserts they serve. Each one better than the other. Highly recommended as either a date place or a group-of-6 dining experience.

This was so good. We had an app, pizza, and their homemade lemoncello. Staff were nice and helpful. And, they’re open later than most places on a Sunday. 10/10! Keep doing what you’re doing.

The wood oven baked pizza was really good. I recommend Starting with the Ricotta Dumplings and the Charred Broccolini. The Buffalo Mozzarella is a good choice for pizza. You definitely need to leave some room for dessert. The Fried to order Zeppole (taste like a warm freshly made airy donut) and Cappuccino are perfect together.

Fav pizza place in town that’s a step up from your normal casual pizzeria. This is more of a date night spot with good cocktails, nice wine and incredible apps/salads. They have a nice bar and you can see into the kitchen, a cool spot for sure. We take all our out of town guests here. Make sure your get the chili oil and shredded Parmesan for your pizza! Can’t recommend this place enough. Beet and Durham salads are both amazing. Proof of Vaccinations required, FYI. Only complaint is communal tables, which kind of kills the step up feeling of a date night when you’re closer to strangers than your friends.

Favorite pizza place in Durham hands down. Make sure to get their pizza that uses their fennel sausage. The kale salad is simple and a great light starter while you wait for your pizza. I love getting their spicy oil too and drench the crust with it. Yum! I'm getting hungry and might need to go back tonight. Bar seating is around back and one of our favorite spots at here.

My favorite restaurant for pizza! The Meyer lemon pizza (seasonal) is amazing. Also, the spicy lamb meatball is outstanding. The Tuscan kale salad is my go-to starter. Get a cappuccino for dessert- it comes with a rock candy lollipop! Warm and cozy atmosphere, good customer service and quality food. Always consistent.

Friendly staff. This place is packed tight which makes me feel all the better about requiring proof of vaccination to attend. Food and drink was delicious. Pizza is one size but easy to share. Staff is knowledgeable on the items and you can see the pizza oven from anywhere in the place.

Not a bad seat in the house here! We sat in the bar today but every time I have visited we have enjoyed tremendous hospitality alongside very well prepared food, including pizzas with a nice variety of toppings, even Meyer Lemon. Save room for dessert, you must have the Budino!
