Current Pizza Situation in Torrance Area

Is Bonello's considered the Go-To place? An authentic Italian from the Bronx told me that was the pizza to go to...but I'm suspicious...
More or less dismal (the pizza situation). Can't speak for Bonello's.
I usually order from a small chain called Garlic Jims. I get the thin crust and light on the sauce, and I'm happy.
I never heard of Bonello's but I checked the location and only found that name in San Pedro. Maybe that is a different location or something. I looked at maps because I once worked in the area of Torrence and Harbor City and the pizza place I went to most often was either on Lomita Blvd or PCH in Harbor City. I cannot recall the name because it has been years since I worked out there but I do recall that the owner had many national awards for pizza tossing. The pizza was pretty good back then. Not sure but maybe the place below is the place I once went to very often.

Not Torrance, but San Pedro is home to maybe the best new pizza place around. Pavich is amazing pizza with a great thin crust. Actually it's Croatian-style, but I prefer this to most of the thin crust pizza places around.
I believe there is a Bonello's across El Camino College on Crenshaw which has been there for years. They used to send out discount flyers and do home deliveries if I remember correctly. Haven't had their pizzas in a long time but when we did, it was probably the best around. To be honest, I prefer Costco pizzas...OK, shoot me!
