  1. dino's is acceptable for non NY non chicago style pizza
    i hear Pepe's NY Pizza - Studio City - Studio City, CA is pretty good for NY style

    I personally just drive to tomato pie in silverlake.

    1. If you are willing to go to Glendale then you may as well bite the pizza pellet (g) and go all the way to Settebello http://settebello.net/ in Pasadena and see what all the hoopla is about on the LA CH http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/809640 board (we have not been but would love to try it when we are up that way the next time)

        I love pizza and have been to Settebello. No biggie.

        The only other (anti)pointer I can give to the OP is to avoid the Crispy Crust chain. That chain is remarkable in that I cannot get their food down my throat, and I can eat some bad, bland, greasy, mediocre food.

      2. Casa Bianca in nearby Eagle Rock. Try and get there when they open for dinner. Otherwise yo can have a long wait.

          I love Casa Bianca, but then I'm even older than the restaurant is and that's the kind of pizza I was first introduced to, except for the cutting-into-squares thing. It is authentic 1950s American pizza; if you love that you'll love this. If you love almost any pizza you encounter you'll like it, too. If the thought of canned mushrooms makes you gag, go elsewhere.

          1. re: Will Owen

            Casa Bianca well summarized. Personally I hate it.
            If you're going to Silverlake, Mother Dough is good.
            If you want to travel a bit East and want more NY style, Folliero on Figeroa

            1. re: cls

              I have had good pizza at Folliero but that was a long time ago. The last 2 times I was there the pizza crust was undercooked and soggy. I've pretty much given up on them.

              1. re: cls

                Me too (cls's CB note). I love Settebello, also really like Carmine's but that is in So Pas.

          2. Drive the extra 10-15 minutes and go to Tomato Pie in Silver Lake for NY style or Mother Dough in Los Feliz for Neapolitan pizza. Both are some of the best in the city imo.

            1. Casa Bianca-Eagle Rock, Tomato Pie-Silver Lake and Zelo-Arcadia since most of the better Pizza places are outside of Burbank/Glendale. Settebello is over-hyped and over-priced. Might as well go to 800 Degrees in Westwood for Neapolitan.

              1. If I don't want to drive to Bollini's, then I go for a nice NY style (you said, any style!) at Brownstone Pizza in Eagle Rock. Get it well done.

                  LOVE brownstone and i highly recommend the garlic topping. once we did that we've never not had it on there. Folierios is also awesome (but they don't deliver, i don't think?). How's everyone liking Two Boots in echo park? I haven't had it in so long but remember thinking it was great.

                  1. re: Clyde

                    I've only had Two Boots by the slice and I thought it was pretty good. I'd imagine it is even better with a whole fresh pie. Garage in Silver Lake is also worth a mention for NY style.

                    I'll second Zelo in Arcadia.

                  2. re: happybaker

                    Is Bollini's still pretty good?

                    I haven't been in a few years.

                    And did they finally expand into the larger space next door?

                    For some reason, I'm never there when they are open as they close in the mid-afternoon, and if memory does not escape me are closed for lunch on saturdays and all day on sundaes.

                  3. We don't go to Dino's anymore because the service is so bad. George's Cucina hidden up in Kenneth Village on Kenneth road (Between Burbank and Glendale) has really good pizza . Central park Pizza in burbank, at the batting cages on Victory is pretty good.

                    1. My choice is Johnnies on Brand Blvd. They also have a few Johnnies over in Santa monica and Century City. My favorite is the one in Century City. The one in Glendale on Brand is very good. I'm New Yorker/Eastcoaster living in Studio City.

                        Okay, years ago I had the Johnnies from Maria del Rey or Santa monica, and liked it. I am now in Glendale. Good to know the one on brand is decent!

                        1. re: happybaker

                          The Johnnies at Miracle Mile is not good.

                          1. re: Clyde

                            I like Johnnies a lot more when I order a "thin" crust from them...We still get pizza from the location at Olympic and Barrington on a semi-regular basis.
