Good pizza in Glendale/Montrose/La Crescenta?

The previous owners of our house recommended Two Guys From Italy. It's fine, but are there any really good pizza places nearby? Delivery preferred but I'll happily pick it up if it's worth my while.

  1. Probably for that general area you should try Brownstone Pizza in Eagle Rock and if Fratelli's still there in Montrose they do a pretty good pie.

      2nd both these recs but I believe Brownstone to be the better of the two

      1. There's a strange little place in Kenneth Village, between Glendale and Burbank, that has great pizza. George's Cucina I think it's called. The service though, and most of the rest of their menu, isn't very good.
        You might try Divina Cucina up on Verdugo in Montrose, or Cafe Sole on Verdugo in La Canada. Star Cafe in downtown Montrose also has pretty good pizza. Be sure to report back on your findings!

        Georges Cucina Italiana
        1418 W Kenneth Rd, Glendale, CA 91201

        Divina Cucina
        3730 Verdugo Rd, Montrose, CA 91020

        Star Cafe
        2217 Honolulu Ave, Montrose, CA 91020

          I can't recommend Divina's pizza (though I love their food). I would suggest Pizza Cucina up on Foothill in La Canada Snootyridge and also second the recommendation for Northend down in Burbank for what they call "Boston-style".

            Unfortunately Pizza Cucina has undergone a change of ownership and while the menu remains exactly the same, the quality of the pies and calzones has slipped dramatically. The sauce is bland, the pizza dough is tough and way too chewy, and the ingredients, particularly the sausage, lack zest.
            As a local and former regular customer, I find this development disastrous.

            I have George's pizza delivered often. It is very good: fresh, homemade neighborhood pizza.

              And their meatball and sausage sandwiches are to die for.

          3. I'm originally from NY, living in Glendale 25 years. The best thin crust pizza in the area is North End Pizza in Burbank. Worth the 15 minute drive. Eat it there.
            212 E Orange Grove Ave (north of San Fernando)

            1. Casa Bianca is in Eagle Rock right down the street from Glendale. IMHO -- The best of all mentioned. I found North End pizza bland. Two Guys is very average.
