All I could come up with was a recommendation for Ugo. Any other thoughts ?

Thanks

(we'll be coming from the south/west if that increases our options.)

    Will you be there on a weekday or a weekend? It make a difference as one of the places, (Victor Jr's) is only open during the week. There is always The Coop. Some swear by it, some swear at it. Just outside of Culver City in West LA, (or maybe just outside of West LA in CC). I recommend Victor Jr's over the Coop, (and V jr's also has good sandwiches)

      Two of my current favorites have been mentioned already. Victor Jr's for more traditional pizzas - great sauce that tastes like they've put alot of effort in refining it over the years (probably more like decades) to have a nice tang and just the right combination of onions and herbs... As Sir Tony mentions, their one minus for eaters is their limited ours of operation. They do alot of take out and delivery, but feel free to drop in and grab a stool on counter along the wall, or sit outside but bring a sweater. Great sandwiches as well...

      Abbot's Pizza on Abbot Kinney for lots of variations on pizzas. If you enjoy the sublime taste of grilled mushrooms, grab a few slices of their wild mushroom pizza - my favorite there. Also, their salad pizza is great as well. One slice of that, along with a wild mushroom and maybe a popeyes chicken and that's a full meal...

      The Coop! I love Coop pizza. It's inexpensive, and the folks that work there are really, really nice. It's the best pizza I've had in LA. Sadly, I've never found a menu online. But I think the extra large is $13, w/toppings $1.50 each (toppings are cheaper the smaller the pizza.) They have the standard toppings, plus some nice extras. Their calzones are also good, and their antipasto salad excellent.

        Coop is NY style - not sure what style you are looking for. They do have probably the best NY style in or near Culver City.

        Antica Pizzeria in the Marina (on Glendon in the same mall as Gelsons and Sport Chalet) is great for Neopolitan style, and I also like Kristina's on Overland in Palms for their pizzas.

        And let us know if you find something better in your search.

          I agree that the Coop is great, but just be aware that it is strictly takeout. There is no room or tables to eat in.

          Victor's Jr also has very good NY style pizza (and very good subs too) and a few tables to sit at.

            I agree with Jack and also want to mention a little Italian restaurant on Culver and Braddock called something like Fioretti-I always forget! The pizza is in the style of Antica and I really like it. The pasta is good too. The pizza is always on menu and is offered as a special with salad. It is a sit-down place with all the amenities implied.

            Hmm, I heard about Juliette's Pizzeria which is in the strip mall on the south-east corner of Palms & Sepulveda. Suppose to be a GREAT pie but not so great service.

              another vote for Victor Jr's! Their chicken parm pizza is yummy!

                Villa Italian on Sepulveda and Washington across from Titos has the rectangular Chicago style pizza, also a full on restaurant

                  Yo, what about Abbot's Pizza? I'm fussy about pizza and I really like it.

                    IT's great but not in Culver City.

                      Would you concur that Abbot's is "(in or around)" Culver City? It seems to be about 5 miles away...

                        I also agree, but using Venice Blvd as a freeway like most do, it's a relatively short drive, and IMHO worth the trip. Besides, everyone has their own wierd definition of Culver City limits... who would ever guess that its west border ends at Lincoln? Costco is actually in Culver City... a result of the city's selective gerrymandering to gain tax revenue long ago when that lot was occupied by a dog racing track...

                      i'm a big fan of Abbot's on Abbot Kinney. The one on Pico is closer to me, but not as good. Could never figure out why.

                        I've wondered that as well... while the original mothership location is always busy, I've experienced in the few times I've been to the Pico location that you could hear a needle drop. Maybe it's lack of turnover?
