Pizza in Montebello

Looking for a recommendation for good thin crust NY style pizza in Montebello. We love Bollini's but the family kiddies don't so looking for something else. Thanks.

      Zelo's is outstanding, arguably the most acclaimed pizzeria in all of Southern California, but it most certainly is not "thin crust NY style pizza."

      From personal experience, I also wouldn't be too sure its unique gourmet pizzas will be acceptable to "the family kiddies." I've spoken to Mike, the owner, a few times and he's told me in no uncertain terms how frustrating it's been for him to have to constantly deal with a lot of disappointed families that come in expecting standard, flexible pizza options.

        It's also fuckin far from Montebello.

          Isn't Monterey Park near Montebello, maybe a couple miles away possibly.

          I may be wroing.

          But if not, then Bollini is an option.

          1. re: ipsedixit

            and bollini is thin crust too, though i know many will say it is nowhere near as good as the joints in Hollywood, West LA and Santa Monica.

      2. Darn, my favorite pizza in Montebello is Rio's, but that is definitely NOT thin crust. Sorry.

        1. Not Montebello, but close by, Pizza Kitchen in Rosemead makes decent thin crust pizza and the place has been around for over 30 years.

            That is actually close to the part of Montebelo I will be in. Thanks.

          2. Petrillo's up in San Gabriel (not too terribly far from Montebello) does offer a thin crust version of their pizza. It ought to be worth checking out based on the quality of the normal crust pizza.

                In their post to begin this thread the OP said "We love Bollini's but the family kiddies don't so looking for something else."
