Good Pie on Westside?

Anyplace to get really good pie for dessert, on the Westside? Not interested in Marie Calendar's, Polly's, or The Apple Pan. Thanks.
It's not exactly the westside, but my favorite place for pie is a little gelateria on Robertson between Olympic and Wilshire. It's called something plain like Il Gelateria. Besides serving good gelati, I discovered their apple pie, which is something I dream about. I live in NYC now, but each time I get to LA, that's one of the first places I end up. I was never even a fan of apple pie until I had this one. Unlike the orthodox pie tin approach, they make their pies in a springform pan and fill it to the rim, making an enormous pie. A scoop of gelato on the side is a perfect accompaniment. What also draws me back there is the absolutely friendly service.
