I was staying near by and was looking for a decent place to grab a pizza vs. traditional chain pizza joints.
I started looking at all the different reviews and came across Brooklyn Pizza and Pasta because it was so close.
I was real hesitant because of some of reviews of being delivered late and cold.
I decided to give it a shot. Calling in was a snap, he took my order and I kept it simple.
I was actually really surprised, 30 minutes later delivered right to my hotel door. Pizza was delicious. It was definitely NY style pizza. Thin crust, seem liked it was cooked in a traditional woodburning pizza oven because of the different parts of the pizza that cooked longer. Mozzarella cheese was excellent.
Next time I am back in the area, I would order there again.
The is the best New York pizza I've had in LA. The traditional cheese is delicious, but their specialty pizzas are also incredible. Try the fresh mozzarella, four cheese, veggie or double pepperoni. Every one is soooo good! I'm very happy I discoved Brooklyn Pizza!

I had been there before, where I thought the pizza was awazing!(just a few months back) I hadn't returned in a long time, and it was the only place on the street opened on Friday night. They were closing and they allowed me to come in and they didnt rush me in ordering or eatting. I got my pizza in about 10 minutes, and it was even better than when I was there a couple months back! I would highly recommend this place to any good NY pizza lover. In my opinion, BEST PIZZA ON THE WEST COAST!

What a waste of commercial space in West L.A., unless your looking for a good laugh.
Never did get to try the food, the dirty disheveled wait staff (one very confused young lady) couldn't figure out that the Snapple Iced Tea was in fact Iced Tea because the label reads: ""lemon"" on the side (!), I was told ""we don't have tea, but we do have Snapple Lemon."" I asked her to just bring me the Snapple Lemon - it was Iced Tea. The same young lady, when asked if one sauce could be substituted for another over the ravioli, said it just couldn't be done. Only when we asked her three or four times what the logic was behind their inability to pour a different sauce over cooked pasta did she think it might be a good idea to ask her boss ""if that can be done,"" after of course trying to feed us the idea that it couldn't be exchanged because the ""sauce is made special."" (!) WTF! We left. Just not willing to take the chance that the food was as laughable as the service.
But, we had a good laugh. And the Snapple ""lemon"" was great.

I have to agree with manhattinitea on this one. Me and a friend happened upon this place last night. We were starving & happened to see this place that advertises itself as the ?best pizza in LA? so we decided to give it a try. Well, I should have known something wasn?t quite right when the place was totally empty & smelled like anything but a pizza parlor when we walked in. Shortly after choosing a table and seating ourselves, our waitress came out to take our order. She was polite enough, but just did not look clean. She was wearing a wrinkled up dingy white t-shirt and a pair of jeans with a belt that was not doing it?s job if you know what I mean. I just wanted to ask her to please pull her pants up every time she turned to walk away I saw more than I wanted to see, sheesh! But I digress? when our long-awaited food finally arrived it was cold, and I thought ?How could this be? We were the only one?s in there and it took 20 minutes to bring it! Why wasn?t it hot & fresh?? There was no cheese to be found on the pizza, when I picked up my slice, all of the toppings came tumbling off because they were not held together by any sauce or cheese. The French fries were horrible ? I mean greasy, and the sauce on top of the fries had a funny taste. Both my friend and I were so disappointed in our meals that we just ate what we could stand to, paid the bill and ended up leaving to find a drive-through Please, save yourself the aggravation, you will be bitterly disappointed at this place!

I and a good friend of mine stumbled upson this place after having just moveds to the Neighbrhood. It was almost closing time but the OWNER who also works the place like any REAL Pizzeria, took our order and stayed to let us leisurely eat . I lived in Brooklyn for 15 yrs before moving here and refuse to east Pizza on the westcoast cause my tastebuds were spoiled by such great Pies on thhe East. The Pie was AMAZING ...Service was friendly and more importantly welcoming .... I haven't tried anything else yet ... but I am looking forward to it !!!!!

Being from New York, I tried helplessly to find authentic tasting NY pizza. Feeling despondent, I acidentally stumbled upon this run down display of italian cuisine. Some of the seats break when you sit on them, yet the service from the owner, Real, is charmingly essential New York.
Despite the restaurant's appearance...the pizza is some of the best tasting I've ever had. With each bite, as the cheese slowly cools from its lava-like state, the flavor explodes with depth, salt and amazingness. The cheese is imported directly from NY..and it is unlike anything you can get here in LA. Most trash-pies that pass themselves off as ""real NY pizza"" are grease-bombs with pre-shredded bag cheese on a flavorless thin crust. If you want real pizza, chewy salty dough with the perfect amount of rich, thick, pizza sauce that tastes nothing of canned tomato paste, with dare I say the best pizza cheese imaginable- Head to Real's.
PS The mozzarella sticks and either the chopped or greek salad make fine appetizers.

I had asked about the food and a gruf man grunted a total for the bill which was higher than expected. He said that the prices had gone up since I had received a menu. But, when I asked for a new menu, he said they hadn't been made. (what?!). When I asked about the $3 delivery fee, whether the restaurant took the fee or if the fee went to the driver, the guy (who wound up being the owner) said that it went to the driver, but that the drivers were really nice and that I should tip the guy. Later I find out that THE GUY WHO DELIVERED the pizza WAS THE OWNER--I found this stunt to be a really lame way to get some cash, (FYI: had indeed tipped in addition to the fee). ABOUT THE FOOD: My single topping pizza was colder than ice cubes & there was only 1 1/2 full pepperoini slices (the size of nickels) per pizza slice. The meatball hero I ordered had three meatballs the sized of quarters--and yes, tasted ""funny"" as the other review states, had a teaspoon of sauce and was not on a roll, but instead on the most disgusting doughy flatbread that made eating copy paper seem appealing. When I asked about the skimpy toppings (which totaled $9 of the bill), I was told that I was lucky to have a pizza like that made for me because all the toppings (including the cheese) gets air shipped from NY daily and that's why it's pricey. Well, believe them, because the food tastes like disgusting cold airline food. The pizza was not carried in an insulated pizza carrier which was why it was so cold. You would think by ripping people, they could buy 1 insulated pizza bag for customers.
Save your money and more importantly save your taste buds and save yourself the aggravation. DO NOT eat here. The food is horrific. I threw all the food out. I couldn't even in good conscious give the food away. They fraudently overcharge & the service is nonexistent. FYI: This place currently has a ""D"" rating w/ the Better Business Bur (labbb. org). If you want NYC pizza: order from Mulberrys or Johnnies.

You gotta be kidding me if you think a 9.0 is anywhere near what this place is...or you've never eaten pizza before. I had four separate slices when I tried this place out with my Jersey girl - Pep, Cheese, Mushroom, and Meatball. Cheese was old and chewy, the Pep was kinda dry, the mushroom was gross, and the meatball was like sawdust. I seriously had to drink two cokes when trying to finish the one piece of meatball. My girl hated it. I usually give ANYplace a second chance. We swore we'd never go back, it was that bad.

After reading previous reviews, we decided to get carry-out instead of delivery. The person who answered the phone when I called was not very pleasant. I told him I was unfamiliar with their menu and wanted to know if they had any speciality pizzas, and he made me feel like an idiot for asking. When we arrived twenty minutes later to pick it up (as the man on the phone said to do) they had not started making out pizza. I was rather shocked by this, but the chef was very amiable and said it would be ready shortly. About 10 minutes later, the pizza was ready. In the meantime we watched some of the moive that was playing in the dining room. As we walked out, the chef told us we would be back becuase he just made us the best pizza in LA. Now, I'm from the east coast and I have high standards for my pizza. The toppings were very fresh (we got veggie with sausage), but the sausage tasted a little funny. More like meatball than sausage. The sauce was also very nice; fresh and thin with an acidic taste, not thick and sweet. The crust was a little thick for my taste. Overall it was a very good pizza; however, the ultimate test for a good pizza is just cheese. We'll have to try that next time.

Problems: Delivery, for me, was slow. It took 1 hr and 5 minutes that night - no lie. The owner himself happened to deliver the pizza to my door because of an employee shortage, and he was exceptionally and ridiculously RUDE.
I got ripped off for a a large 18' pizza: On the phone, I clearly remember the friendly employee saying $18 with one topping and that does includes the 3 DOLLARS FOR DELIVERY! Anyway, I got the pizza expecting to pay approx $18 dollars and the manager says, at the door, ""$22."" I said, ""Sorry, but how much is the delivery charge and one topping? I specifically remember being told approx $18 on the phone."" The manager, in his rude, stereotypical NY fashion, snaps, ""Do you want the pizza or not."" I was appalled at his remark and service!
I payed $22 because I felt sorry for him: He was the owner running delivery routes at night. Anyway, the pizza is good, but NOT worth the service!! He gives New Yorkers a bad name, living up to the stereotype. By the way, the pizza was cold. I had to heat up the oven and reheat.
I acknowledge that this may have been a rare case - only specific to that night, but I must give an overall bad review. I'm rating it a 6 just to give the place credit for some tasty pizza; but GOOD LUCK on getting it fresh, hot and on time. The CONS outweigh the PROS.
The best pizza I've had in L.A. was at Spumoni's near Santa Monica Beach (no delivery though)

If your from the East coast, you know good pizza. I've searched for a year for pizza close to home...finally I have found it!! This pizza is so good, reminds me of New York. East Coasters have to try it, West Coasters need to try it to actually taste good pizza!
