good new york style pizza, like pizza place, reasonable prices, good marvelous tomato sauce, slow customer service, mediocre pizza, great service
Awesome NY-style pizza. If you're ever in the mood, this place hits the spot.
As a born and raised New Yorker, finding a good slice of pizza in LA is few and far between; that said, with its East Village taste, Village Pizzeria is, what I consider, the second best pizza shop in LA.
Am I in LA or New York? Seriously rivals any authentic NY pizza but with the lovely LA weather.
If this is the best pizza in L.A., I need to move back to Chicago. Having been born and raised in New York and lived in Chicago for years -- I know good pizza. This is awful. I am convinced that those that post positive comments here must be the owners. If not, then you need a taste bud transplant. Is there anyone who can tell me where there is GOOD pizza in L.A.? I'm not even asking for great pizza - just good pizza!
truly the village idiot...worst service ever...soggy pie. every village has one and the owner of this place truly is it for larchmont. took my family there about 2 weeks ago for a early dinner. my wife sat with the kids as i ordered at the counter. after finishing my order i sat down and proceeded to wait for our food. after waiting for about 15 minutes, i was told that they boxed up my food because i had ordered from the counter i would not be able to sit with my family and eat in the place. does this sound normal to you. its a pizza place. i was at a loss of words. i know they are from NY but what the.... by the time we got home the pizza was so soggy we ate about half of it...i know its not fine dining but if i am spending money in your place please treat me with respect. that will be the last time i wll go or order from there. and my wife will be telling everyone at the kids school.
Rude owner, decent pizza.. The pizza at this place is better than average, the service is decent, but the owner, Steve, is a miserable and rude human being. He hovers over tables, tries to pack up your food in to-go boxes before your are finished eating, brings the check while you are still eating, and makes faces when kids are in his restaurant. He also mumbles under his breath to his staff that people take too long in his restaurant. He needs to understand that is is a very casual pizza joint where families should be able to take their children. All he cares about is getting customers in and out of his restaurant as quickly as possible, even if nobody is waiting. I would much rather go a few doors down to Barri's and have a nice experience. Chill out Steve and be thankful that people continue to eat at your restaurant.
Great Pizza, Horrible Customer Service. I am sad to share that the poor customer service will prevent my family, friends and I from ordering pizza here again. After attempting to call in an order and hearing the Village Pizza employee swear left and right while on "hold" we had to cancel the order. She shouted "I'm going to bl#w a f&*#n gasket right now just so everyone knows..." after making a mistake on our order and having to start over again. Sorry if listening is not your strong skill. I asked to speak to the manager and she said she was and made no effort to apologize for her rude behavior. If it's too hot in the kitchen, get out. We called Berri's instead were greeted with a very friendly employee and know that not only is the pizza good, but so is the service.
Best. Pizza. Ever..
No joke--Village is THE best pizza you will ever eat. Even if you scour all of Italy. Great atmosphere, families, young couples, old couples, groups of friends, singles ...
Reasonaly priced for one of the best meals in L.A.
Larchmont is a really cool area to stroll around before or after ... Baskin Robbins, Pinkberry, every coffee shop you could imagine.
Thin crust, zesty yet not too tangy marinara, fresh mozzerella, array of toppings to choose from.
Steve, the owner is awesome. So is everyone else who works there. It's just the BEST!
Best Pizza in Los Angeles.
I have read all the review both positive and negative. I must agree with those that rave about Village Pizzeria. Yes, it is small and busy, but the food is worth the wait. I have never had a bad eating experience there in the 5 years that I have been going there. Lately, my wife and i have been going for early Sunday dinners there. For us, it doesn't seem like a Sunday night unless we've each had our slice and garlic rolls. The best part of the experience is the food. Everything is fresh and you can taste the difference. Plus, the prices are more than reasonable.
If you can deal with a little wait for a table and the parking situation on Larchmont (those who go there know how to handle it), then Village Pizzeria is the place to go. The price is right and the food is superb.
Enjoyed seeing you on Huell Howser.. I really enjoyed seeing you make your pizza on Huell Howser's show, but will this pizza be as good as Petrillo's in San Gabriel? I don't know if they go to all the trouble you do. I hope Huell does a show on them too. I will try your pizza and report back!
The Best!!!!. I absolutely love this place. Delicious pizza, quick service, consistently outgoing/friendly waitstaff and reasonable prices. What more could you want?? Whenever I have guests in from out of town, they insist on going to Village Pizza. Keep up the great work!!! See you soon.
Slices of Heaven. As a (native) NY-pizza fan, I can honestly say that this is the best pizza I have tasted in this city. Technically speaking, I have yet to find an actual "NY style" pizza joint, where you can walk in and throw a couple of dollars on the counter and walk away 5 minutes later with a fresh hot slice on a paper plate - without the obligatory sit-down fiasco. I miss that simplicity, however - as far as flavor and texture, this stuff reaches the mark closer than any others I've tried in L.A. And don't forget about the Sicilian - wow! Near perfection in my book - crispy bottom, with the perfect fluffy yet chewy inch and a half crust - just divine, people.
The only pizza worth eating in the state of California. Having come from NY and knowing what good pizza is, this place has it all! The best pizza I've ever eaten here in CA. I can't say enough good things about how fresh, hot and tasty the pizza is. The salads are great too. Just beware of the wait because this place fills up fast and there isn't much space. Going with a party of 4 or more can mean 30 minutes or more before getting seated. But, it's all worth the wait. Everything tastes good here.
