Forget Lamonica's, Vito's Pizza RULES!

M Blues | Jun 7, 2007 08:20 AM

For 20 years I've lived in Los Angeles, and religiously, whenever I felt like pizza, I'd go to Westwood, and enjoy Lamonica's, on Gayley.
Unfortunately, the last visits, over the last 6 months or so, have been really underwhelming.
And the last time I went, a couple weeks ago, will be the last time. It was terrible. My slice of mushroom covered pizza was dry, tasteless, and it actually "cracked" when I went to fold it.
And I somehow heard something about a new pizza place on La Cienega, VITO'S.
Well, I've been there twice, and it's GREAT. They have about 6 different pies on display, and sell slices, and for under $15 you can have a couple great slices of pizza, and a beer, and really be satisfied.
Vito's is on La Cienega, between Melrose and SM Blvd, on the east side of the street.
It's tiny, and in a tiny strip mall.
