Artisen, Organic & Tasty! – OK, I've been to both the Pitfire Pizza in Downtown L.A. on 2nd & Main and in North Hollywood! The food is consistently delicious... every time! The vibe is hip & it's clean & fun inside. These guys definitely get it. The owners go to the local farmer's market and buy in season produce for their pizzas and salads. The heirloom tomato pizza is out of this world. The crust is thin and tastes like some little old man in Naples made it in an outdoor woodfired oven. They have this slogan, "the crust you can trust" and you'll know why once you take a bite of this tasty pizza. I could go on and on about this place. Anyways, just go!!!
The shizl – These guys get it. They get food, they get taking care of customers, they get good ingredients. After years of perfecting their pizzas first by cooking on open woodfired grills (the "pit" in pitfire), then to different ovens, they've perfected the crust. It's the best crust I've had in North America. Better yet, by using local resources for ingredients be it farmers market veggies or artisanal sausage, the Pit Fire guys create good food.
Pricing is fair, quality is fantastic. Service is always fast and friendly.
We (Westsiders) can't wait for the new location on Westwood Blvd!
My kids love it, my friends love it, you will too. Really!!!
Small portions – I just got the pumkin ravioli. The price was $10.25 and there were 10 in the box. I don't mind paying good money for good food, but they were OK...yeah...just OK. The pumkin was flavorful but covered in oil...very greasy. It was more like an appitizer. I certainly was not filled up by this small portion. I usually get the bow tie pasta which is good. That is why they got the 2 stars. Otherwise they would have gotten one star. I would suggest asking about the portion size before ordering.
Sweet Surprise! – The atmosphere was cool, staff helpful and pizza awesome! Their crust is truely a crust you can trust and the toppings and freshness were really fantastic. Definately one of the best pizza's I've ever had.
Perfect Wood Oven-Fired Pizza in NoHo – I recently moved to North Hollywood, and this pizza spot is hands-down my favorite in the neighborhood. There's over 5 competing pizza places within 4 blocks in any direction of this place, including one next door, but Pit Fire is so good, I'd gladly drive to eat here even if I lived farther away. Generously sized single pizzas are baked in a wood-fired oven -- the result is a chewy, crispy crust, topped with trendy or traditional toppings. I've had the sausage and greens pasta, which was also good. Service is fast and it's never been so crowded that I've had to wait for a table. An under-hyped gem!
Editorial Review – North Hollywood eatery purveys paninas, pasta and pizzas made from organic ingredients at reasonable prices; espresso bar and occasional live music.
Great Place - To Keep it Uncrowded, Don't Go! – Great Place, Best Place - To Keep it Uncrowded, Don't Go!
Great Food – This lovely cafe is best enjoyed by dining outside. It's not the beach or Santa Monica but you can still have a nice dinner inexpensive dinner under their misters on a hot summer night. Their bean soup is to die for and their different salads, pizza and pasta will accomodate anyone diet - Zone or otherwise.
I recommend it for a quick dinner or a "fun" date night (but not the first one!!)
