What Happened to LABARBARA'S Pizza? This was the BEST pizza in Westwood. Does anybody know if any of the family has reopened another pizza restaurant anywhere? I am on a quest to try to find them. Please help!!!

    La Barbera's closed years ago when a strip mall was built over the original site. The developers wanted La Barbera's to continue, but the family decided to retire as the children were not interested in continuing the restaurant.

    I can still taste their wonderful pepperoni. In my book the greatest loss ever for the LA food scene.

      Previous threads addressing the question. I don't think they've reopened anywhere. I always found their crust too sweet, and preferred DiVita's, which is still there.
