Pizza Banfi has been home to Forest Hill Village since 1988. Banfi was named after a famous Italian actor Lino Banfi. Giovanni Turano, known to all as Nino, was born in Genova, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1982. His origin is reflected in the menu offering food from the North and South of Italy. Pizza Banfi became famous and well known for its gourmet thin crust pizza. The food, the atmosphere and the excellent service is what has made Pizza Banfi one of the best restaurants in Toronto.
