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.
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 ...
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.
LOVE this place and love Christie D'Amore who runs this operation. This crust, fantastic sauce and great atmosphere! I like my pizza made very specific easy cheese, well done, extra sauce, if I go with Hawaiian I like the ham chopped into small pieces... seriously... Whatever I request they hit the mark every time and with no questions asked! I am from CT and have lived in NY, it's really hard to find great Pizza in LA, but I found it here, thanks team D'Amore's!!! Love the salads as well, they know what they are doing as they are completely family run and the recipes have been in the family for close to 100 years. You guys rock!!!
If you want a greasy, fatty, all around over cheesed pizza, DO NOT EAT HERE! D'Amores is not your average cheep high calorie pizza. They use real ingredients and stay away from cheap cheeses and high calorie crusts. I care about my body and my food so when I am craving a pizza I order from here. They use herbs and spices and carfully picked cheeses to flavor their pizza, where most places I feel like use cheese and greasy meats. I love this place because I can have the pizza I crave without breaking my diet. I don't mind paying the extra few bucks to eat here when I know that what I'm putting in my body is quality ingredients.
Hands down my favorite casual pizza restaurant in LA. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that their pizza crust is thin and crunchy. (I've been to Olio - meh - but not Mozza). The cheese and toppings are high quality too. Service is good but on the very casual side. I just recently realized that they're open til 4am meaning I can go here for pizza after the bars let out!! I see more pizza silces in the near future. woot woot. I can say watch out when you get too many toppings and get the pizza to go. The crust will get soggy, so if you can, eat there instead if you have to drive far when you get it to go.
You have to go at least once to experience the lovable train wreck that is Marty and Elayne. And if you can get her to do it, Elayne's version of Muscrat Love is cray-cray, as she makes the little animal sounds. The key is to get there early so you get a seat on the side of the place where the piano is. Otherwise you'll be standing a long time. Or you'll be relegated to the super old-school dining room, with the huge white leather booths that make you look over your shoulder like the Godfather's going to walk in any moment. The food honestly is not good. Go for a drink and the show.
