Widely considered to make the best pizza in the greater Los Angeles area, this funky Eagle Rock landmark is no place for a quick bite—the waits are usually fearsome, and even ordering a to-go pizza can take an hour. The payoff is a thin-crust, New York-style pizza with a flavor that usually makes you forget the hour of misery you just endured. Smart regulars put in their pizza order when they put their name on the list for a table, and the pizza’s usually ready by the time they’re seated. The rest of the basic Italian food is fine but forgettable.
