loved every mouthful – HAD A GREAT MEAL AT D'AMORES IN CAMARILLO TONIGHT. JOE D'AMORE MAKES YOU FEEL SO WELCOME AND WAS VERY ATTENTIVE THROUGHOUT. THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HAPPY WHICH IS'NT THE CASE WITH A LOT OF RESTAURANT STAFF ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG. I HAVE EATEN IN MANY MANY ITALIAN RESTAURANTS AND CAN HONESTLY SAY IT WILL ONLY BE D'AMORES FROM NOW ON. THE PIZZA WAS OUTSTANDING AND THE LASAGNA WAS SUPERB. THE PORTION SIZES WERE A WELCOME SURPRISE.I HAVE READ THE OTHER REVIEWS WHICH SAID IT IS EXPENSIVE, YES IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN DOMINOES OR PIZZA HUT ITS ALSO 10 TIMES BETTER!!!!!!!!!!GOOD FOOD DESERVES A GOOD REVIEW. WE WILL BE BACK VERY SOON. (D'AMORES WAS RECOMMENDED TO US BY A NEIGHBOR AND SATISFIED CUSTOMER.)
Closest to Real Boston Pizza – In an ocean of same tasting pizza, there's an island called D'Amore's. What other restaurant brings in actual Boston water? The owner took me back into the kitchen and showed me the freaking water? I mean, the attention to detail here shows! The pizza is incredible. The crust is thin, crisp without being dry. Freaking perfect! I've heard about D'Amore's from friends for years. Today, I stopped at the Tarzana store to try a slice. Tonight, I picked up a jumbo pie at their Canoga Park restaurant. My diet is screwed. While I was waiting for my pizza, I was watching a woman eating a plate of baked ziti. Damn!! I'm gonna be back to try it!!
BEST PIZZA AND LASAGNA AND SALAD! – Thanks for such a great experience! I have been eating this pizza for years and I never wrote a review. I saw the one where the guy said all this stuff about it being the worst pizza ever! He obviously must be a freak or maybe he works for for Dominos. This pizza is amazing!! How can anyone say anything but WOW! about this pizza. I like how they re-did the place too. This is their original "hole in the wall" and it's fun to see the pictures on the walls. I feel like I am in New York. Hope these guys stay in business forever. And I love that it's low fat! How is that possible? Something about the olive oil burns off when it cooks? Anyway, everyone should try D'Amore's at least once. And if for some reason, it isn't everything all the other reviews say it is there's always the smart people who realize no one's perfect and you can give 'em one more shot. Or you can just be a creep and just write bad reviews and show how miserable you are.
D'Amore's: The Worst Pizza Place...Ever! – Everything about D'Amore's Pizza is absolutely atrocious, and I strongly suggest that you stay away. The food is horrificly bad and exorbitantly expensive, the kiss of death in the restaurant business; the service is dismal; the wait and cook staff are inattentive and indignant; and there is zero atmosphere. The owner, Joe D'Amore, knows nothing about how to successfully run a restaurant, and it shows.
You have been warned. Your hard-earned money is better spent elsewhere. This food is so terrible that i wouldn't even give it to my dog...
Authentic Boston Pizza – The oldest pizzaria in Boston is Regina's which opened in 1926. It's located in the North End of Boston which is the Italian section of the city. D'Amore's pizza connection does it right. It's almost identical to the pizza Regina's been serving for three generations. Depending on your own preferences, you may or may not think this is great pizza, but if you want to taste how it's done in Boston's North End - this is the place.
WORST PIZZA EVER! – I have had quite a few pizzas in my time. This was by far the worst pizza I have ever had. The advertisement said "Best pizza in the nation." I should suu for false advertising. It was dry, rubbery, and burnt. I called and complained and the customer service said there was nothing they could do about it. I was angry!!! If I had to eat this pizza or die, then I will be digging my own grave.
Great tasting thin crust pizza! – The pizza is great! It is far superior to Abbott's pizza, in my opinion. I would say that it is more on par with Village Pizzeria on Larchmont, except that D' Amores has better crust and sauce. It has a lot of flavor and is very addicting. If they undercook it, which they do sometimes, it is not quite as good.
Their customer service needs serious work. You can stand at the counter for several minutes without so much as an acknowledgement. Not only that, but if they tell you it will be ready in twenty minutes, that means more like thirty to thirty five minutes. Not once has my pizza been ready when they said it would be ready. In fact, one time I showed up after twenty minutes to pick up my pizza and had to wait an additional twenty minutes, AND it was undercooked.
Bottom line: Pizza is great. Service is not so great.
Pizza has Changed – I haven't been to D'Amores in a few months and finally went there for lunch today. I have to say that the pizza has changed. I myself am from NY and yearn that real NY pizza - which is why I go there a lot. But today, I have to say I am a bit disappointed with everything. I had the lunch special (slice, salad and soda for $5.95) The salad was soggy (went from fresh salad mix to cheap iceberg lettuce), the pizza tasted like it was any other pizza from Ameci's or Domino's. It didn't taste like they import the water or other ingredients which made their pizza tasting so good and different from all other pizza in LA.
If Joe D'Amore is reading this, please do a taste testing on some of your locations, esp the Winnetka ones because it is not worth the price we pay for this pizza.
NOT TO BE TRUSTED – I just came back from lunch at "D'Amores" aka Pizza Connection. I went with a group of co-workers during our lunch break and went to the Winnetka location. We ordered a "family size" thin-crust Combination and a family bowl of Antipasto salad. The cheese on the pizza was rubber-y and was a little on the taste-less side. The price was quite expensive because we also ordered drinks and the total came out to $14/person. Granted, we're not from the east coast, and if this pizza is the closest to tasting like the pizza there; you guys don't know what pizza tastes like that. I probably would have been happier with grabing Little Caesars then there. If you guys find anything else that tastes more "authentic" send me the address. I was majorly dissapointed by D'Amores.
