Foursquare Tips

  • They are obsessed with pizza here and it is amazing! The 800 degree woodburning oven is used to create classic Italian favorites. Check out this video... http://youtu.be/qol5i30ZP5Q
  • Salame piccante e funghi is delicious here! Try it!
  • Don't run into the mirror!
  • Get the Budino di Cioccolato! Cream top, decadent chocolate middle, and dark custard manna on the bottom, with sprinkles of salt throughout to enliven the senses with a dissenting, magnificent note!
  • If there is an event going on, don't pay the $8 parking fee. Just tell them you are going to the pizzeria and get a ticket. The restaurant validates!
  • Pizza is some of the best around.
  • Best Pizza in the greater LA OC area, great happy hour too
  • Dare I say, the best pizza in the OC... yep, I said it.
  • Salame e funghi!
  • Try the Guanciale Pizza
  • Hand made Napoli-style pizzas and fresh pastas as well as traditional antipasti in a casual setting.
  • If you're headed to an event at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, this is the place to stop either before or after for a quick bite or a full-on dinner.
