As described, and better! Great food and drinks menu. Creative pizza pies and delicious desserts. Don't miss the fried zeppoles!

Has a small menu that changes seasonally and some unique wood fired pizzas. The decor is minimalist and open but too noisy. Great and friendly staffs. A good place to visit if you are in Durham.

Excellent tasting, wood fired pizza, wonderful salads and appetizers and nice selection of beer and wine in a very nice, relaxing environment. Service was great from Alison who made perfect recommendations that we loved. Next time we visit Durham-Pizza Toro is a must!

The pizzas at Pizzeria Toro are creative, with unique flavors and blends of ingredients. The crust is amazing and brought me back to Italy. It’s so delicious with the wood fired oven! The service was excellent as well. I cant wait to return!
