Calzones in LA??

I have good experience with the calzones at Ameci's. Does anyone know a really good place to get the Calzone?

          Describe Zelo's Calzone!
          How is the sauce?
          What is the crust like?
          Toppings? Any specialty calzones?

            Crust is very much like their pizza, thick, dense and hearty with a good crunch (not dry though).

            Sauce is good and rich, lots of tomato and garlic.

            I've only tried the vegetarian variety, but I believe there is a meat option as well.

            I'm pretty sure if you has Mike (the owner) nicely he'll offer up a Calzone made-to-order for you ...

        2. We had a delicious calzone at Spago.

          1. Albano's on Melrose or in the Valley on Ventura. Most NY authentic
