We made a reservation at 6 p.m. on Sunday and when we got there, it was already packed. The place is very small (can probably fit 30 people or so) so reservation is a must on weekends. We had an amazing Travelozoo deal where 2 glasses of wine, 2 appetizers, 1 pizza or pasta, 2 entrees are only $65 for two! For appetizers, we tried Baccala (whipped salt cod croquettes. salsa rossa) and Fichi (figs. whipped sheeps milk ricotta. saba). Baccala was good but a bit too salty and wasn't my favorite. Fichi, on the other hand, was amazing. I loved it. The next course was pizza; we chose Margherita D.O.P. (tomato. mozzarella di bufala. basil.). This was our waitress's #1 recommendation but it was very disappointing; it wasn't good at all. For entrees, we had Agnello (colorado lamb chops. potatoes. artichokes. black olive) and Port Braciole (neapolitan ragù. swiss chard). Both are very good but not the best Italian dishes I've had. The restaurant was packed so it took forever to bring the food; we didn't mind since we were not in a hurry but I saw two separate guests that night complaining to the manager. Our waitress was very apologetic and checked on us many times and they gave us free dessert so that was nice. I didn't see any self parking space or valet but you can find paid meter parking; but only 1 hour max so we had to leave the restaurant to feed the meter again while waiting for the food. Overall, I liked the restaurant and its ambiance and because of the Travelzoo deal, it was very good deal. But, I'm not too sure if I would come back here again anytime soon (I would rather want to check out other Italian restaurants in the area...)

I miei fratelli e sorelle! It's been awhile and I've been pleasantly adrift Lord knows where but when I finally resurfaced, I was craving a quick Italian fix. The stupor caused by mind numbing days at the office caused me to forget about the dirty old neighborhood friend (shoot, you know we all have 'em, okay) in Di Vita's. Old dirty Di Vita's. My ex-supervisor used to order from this place ALL THE TIME. Calzones - he swore by them. There used to be a gi-normous blond gal behind the counter there and she was feeling my ex-boss something fierce. Why, there were days when he went down there and I thought he might not make it out alive. Forgive me but I digressed. Anyhow, we were craving quick-fast-and-a-hurry eats...cheese pizza, chicken alfredo and something for dessert was what we ordered. Well, you probably get the idea here - it's never that memorable but it gets the job done and gets it done on the cheap. BONUS! - they deliver. It's been awhile since I been to the spot but I drive by there all the time. It's not much on decor but sometimes, you don't need to dress up to stuff the pig, capiche? Anyhow, keep this place in mind when you're in a bind (or just desperate and need something easy and quick). Dunno about you but I ain't too proud to beg - even for Di Vita's. Ciao for now! Good eating to you!
I wondered exactly what this place was about! the pictures on the web give you no clue to how great it truly is in this place! The seating is so comfortable I felt like never leaving! plus I felt like I had just arrived home! they rolled out the welcome mat for me, a total stranger! I felt like I was getting the same treatment any of Hollywoods elite would have gotten! And, when they offer you a soda, it tastes like no pop I have ever had! I can't describe it to you, but it had this rich and clean taste! it was as though it had been specifically made just for them! It was even bottled in 10oz glass bottles! He brought it out to the table and poured it as if it was the finest wine! If price is an issue, you better wear a blindfold when you look at the menu! It is pricey and it tasted so good! my son had French toast, and it came with fruit! The fruit was the freshest cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries, and grapes I had ever seen! here I had a burger that tasted like a steak! the garnish for it was some of the freshest produce! I thanked my server and knew that one day I would be back! probably a regular! When he brought the ticket to my table he called me by name and treated me with the utmost respect! Thank You for an experience I would fully recommend!
This place has great pizza and terrific wine and beer list. I am so glad it's within walking distance of my house - I can enjoy a few glasses of wine or sangria and not worry about driving, plus I can walk off the carbs. WIN! We've had the "Greens, egg & ham" and the Field Mushroom pizzas and all were tasty and incredibly fresh. After our third time coming here, we branched out and ordered a pasta dish - the chicken and mushroom cavatappi, and almost ate the finish off the bowl. The service is pretty good - attentive staff and very friendly. The patio is especially nice since it's so open and makes a great place to sit on a lovely LA afternoon and sip sangria! One evening we were feeling lazy and rather than walking somewhere to eat, we felt like ordering in. We discovered they deliver, and we've ordered in twice now. On both occasions we ordered the Tuscan bean soup and hand chopped salad which make a great soup and salad combo. The soup is very hearty and warms the heart, and the salad is fresh, crunchy and full of great flavors with the roasted corn and bits of bacon. Ok, so that makes five times now that we've either eaten here or ordered from them. I think it's pretty safe to say this place has a permanent fixture in our dining rotation.
We were doing a little pub crawl down Vermont last night....but it stopped here. We sat at the bar with Heather from NYC. She was great fun. This place takes me out of LA. Very unassuming, charming...like my boyfriend said, it reminds you of the place you went with the family for your 1st Communion. (You Catholics know what I mean!) As soon as we sat down at the bar, we had a few slices of pizza in front of us. We grabbed a table for dinner, and split the veggie lasagna. The cheese pasta sauce ratio was perfect, and the sauce is great. To his dismay, it was full of mushrooms. But, I enjoyed those, he picked them out, and LOVED this dish. Plenty to split. The traditional garlic bread and house salads are a great start as well. I wish they had a better wine by the glass selection, next time I'll order a bottle. And we'll get the pizza next time. The sweet bartender got us a slice of tiramisu to split, maybe to welcome me to the neighborhood? It was a really nice touch! Overall, we'll go back again. On a cheat day. Heavy delish traditional comfort food. Glad we walked home.
It took a couple of decades, but I seem to have found my perfect L.A. pizza pie at Two Boots. Just as I discovered so many other fantastic pizza joints in Silver Lake - a wealth of fab cheesy pies! I knew of Two Boots from NYC, so was eager to try it out when it opened. First thing I liked - the awesome ingredient list. I mean, we're not talking about pre-sliced small mushrooms and standard pepperoni. No, we're talking about things like sopressata (Google it), andouille (Google it), crawfish, Cajun ham (!), tasso, BBQ shrimp, artichokes (finally!), Creole chicken and my lovely portobello mushrooms. My favorite is currently a pie with sopressata, portobello mushrooms and red onions. OM*G. Not to be missed is BBQ shrimp and portobello mushrooms on a white pie. Or try one of their combos, like The Dude (had to restart my heart), the sublime Tony Clifton or the nasty but nice Cleopatra Jones. Seriously, I could just sit there every night and grow happy and obese. That's why I take it home. Nom, nom, nom ...
Second time at Bestia and we enjoyed our time at the counter. If it's just two of you, you should really try the counter and watch some of the appetizers as they're being prepared. We ordered the calamari to start with, mostly because it sounded really good on the menu, but the cooks were preparing the tomato salad over and over again. My wife and I just stared. Over. And over. Again. And again. Obviously almost every table was ordering the tomato salad. Mind you. We walked in as soon as they opened the door and we were waiting behind a line of 20 or so customers. We ordered the calamari, a pasta w/ homemade sausage, and the ribeye. Before the ribeye made it out, we gave in. We ordered the tomato salad after watching the 20th salad plate go out. With burrata and other things on the dish that we couldn't figure out... We absolutely loved it. In the end...Happy birthday to me! PS. Parking isn't easy. About $8 if you want valet. Also, reserving ahead of time is HIGHLY recommended.
I don't discriminate. I love pies of all forms. Pizza, nonetheless, is one of my go to food. Whether it's a slice of heaven from Mozza or a hearty tasty slice from Lou Malnati's that really gets the job done, I'm all for it. 800 Degrees deserves anyone's chance to get some love and respect too. It's really simple here. You choose a type of pizza. Classic or burrata on focaccia. Then you pick your base and toppings. 800 Degrees isn't the best pizza in the world. It isn't the fanciest either. However, it does execute reasonably and well balanced for it's price and quality. I normally don't like to build my own entree / food (i.e. The Counter), but I really like that same concept applied on the creation of pizza as long as the ingredients are simple. Even though the quality and ingredient isn't quite like that of Pizzeria Mozza, I'm still a fan of this joint. I'll be looking forward to building my own burrata on focaccia.
This place was a success for us! I decided to buy the $10 certificate of Groupon worth $20 on Friday and decided to make the trip Sunday afternoon for a late lunch. We arrived only 2 other people were there. We got them to put the Lakers game on for us, which was awesome besides the part of them losing . :( Any who... Let's get to the food part. We ordered a Medium Pep pizza, order of wings (crispy and extra saucy) and also their Garlic Knots . OMG, the knots came out first with a side of marinara and they were absolutely delish. The pizza was also very good thin crust pizza. Now the wings were exactly what I was looking for the were super saucy and crispy just how we like them. It was def worth the trip. Wish they had a location in the South Bay we would def be regulars.
Stumbled across this place on 3rd street over the weekend looking for some good food. My mom was here visiting and we needed a balance because the kiddos wanted pizza and we wanted some real food - this was PERFECT!! The food was delicious - they give you salad and drink with your entree and the salad was very very good and I'm not a salad lover. I am a pizza lover, however, and I loved the taste of the pizza so light and yummy. Because we had (6) people in our party - 3 kids, 3 adults, we ordered two pizzas, a lasagne, a spagetti, a baked zita, and one ravioli and we sampled everything from all the plates and it was some good eating!! everyone was happy with the food when we left and the service was amazing too!! That girl Christy she rocks. It was a great experience.
