Casa Bianca vs. Antica Pizza

glutton | May 4, 2006 12:26 AM

I've been reading these rave reviews of Casa Bianca for awhile now, so I finally got my butt in gear and went there. It was a good pizza, not a great pizza. If I compare it to Domino's, Pizza Hut, and frozen pizzas, sure, it is amazing, but dogfood stacks up pretty well in that competition. If I compare it to good pizza that I've had in many cities, then it gets a B. It's got a decently crunchy crust, but the toppings were nothing notable. The service and the place itself were fun and comfortable, which undoubtedly makes a lot of folks keep coming back. If I lived close by, it's probably where I would go for a pizza, but I'm not going to drive across LA to get it.

Contrast Casa Bianca with Antica Pizza in Marina del Rey and I think there is a clear winner. Antica Pizza has a crunchy, Neapolitan crust and great toppings. It's the real deal. It's a different style of pizza than Casa Bianca and perhaps I am just voicing a personal preference, but I truly think that Antica Pizza is superior.
