This sounds promising. Located on Santa Monica Blvd, near Normandie in East Hollywood, it has some things going for it.
Hope it's open tomorrow:
I went there on Saturday right when it opened. Had the small Margherita with pepperoni. It was really fascinating to see them make the pizza in front of me. I got to talk with the owner, he said that everything is imported from Italy. I was amazed to see my pizza cooked in two minutes. It comes out in a very thin crust, but I got to say that I've never been so impressed with a pizza. Everything came together absolutely right. I definitely will be back. They make the real thing. You'll never think of Dominos, Pizza Hut or Papa John's again!
NOTE--They are closed on Sundays.
I stopped in today and I am happy to report it is a great addition to this side of town. I am not a connoisseur of Neapolitan pizza by any means, but I find it a step above 800 degrees, and at a better price point and equal to Mother Dough.
You order at a counter, the young woman working was knowledgable and helpful. I had a bianca pizza and spinach salad. The crust was charred and chewy. The salad was a bit meh, with a heavy balsamic dressing.
The space is HUGE. They are applying for a beer and wine license. I can see this place hoping once it is granted.
I would love to hear other Chowhounds take on the pizza that are more knowledgeable on Neapolitan style.
