Worst pizza – I ordered their deluxe pizza. When the pizza arrived, it looked great. Sauce was bright red, the crust edge crispy. However once I pulled a slice out, what a mess. The ingredients were piled into the middle. There was more oil dripping out that a BP well. The Sausage tasted like hamburger (I ordered Sausage) very bland. Peperoni had no flavor. The chef needs to be retrained how to make a decent pizza. Steer clear of the pizza. UGH!
Best pizza – Great pizza, and pasta dishes. However, we were very disappointed in the salad. We ordered a large one as we usually do at the Simi Valley Chi Chi's and it is large enough to share with one or even two others. But here we had hardly any lettuce and the cheese on top was almost not there. We will skip the salads from now on or at least till they serve amount that is reasonable for the price they charge.
Consistently Good – Chi Chi's has been around for a long time -- over 30 years, I think -- and their food is consistently good at all of the locations I've tried. (Lido's in Van Nuys has the same menu.) My favorite is the shells with meat sauce. Yum! But try the lasagne, too. And you can't beat the price, especially the All You Can Eat Pasta. Their selection of wines is decent.
I patronize the Santa Clarita store the most. It's a nice restaurant for a casual date or a family gathering. Informal, not too noisy, friendly service.
Pizza is pizza – To me...takeout pizza is pretty interchangeable...except for those from places that I just can't stand. The pizza from Chi Chi's is on the upper end of average for me. Their appeal in this neighborhood is that they'll deliver to the mall...a lot of places won't deliver inside the mall.
DON'T GO THERE – This is the best place There are other places to go in the city. You can to better. Ask your mom to cook for you
Best Pizza I've Ever Had Since La Barberas – This is the first review I've written and the only reason I'm writing this is because Chi Chi's pizza is mouth watering delicious. My friends introduced me to this place a couple of weeks ago and we're going there again tonight. I had pizza the first time I went to Chi Chi's and I can't imagine ordering anything else although they have an extensive menu and the homemade pasta looks wonderful. They hide the pepperoni under the cheese. Normally I like my pepperoni pizza cooked well done so that the pepperoni crisps up, but Chi Chi's uses some special pepperoni and the sauce is out of this world. It's a nice sit down restaurant, good atmosphere and you can tell that their loyal customers have been eating there forever. Absolutely amazing pizza!
Pizza Cravings – I used to work here and really love the pizza. My husband is a convert and I introduced him to something not on the menu, Meat ravioli's with white sauce. The family that owns the restaurants used to come in and eat with the extended family, there would be like 12-15 of them and this is one of the things they ordered.I did like it better before they changed the sourdough baquette to rolls, but oh well. I live in Phoenix now, but everyone knows we will go here when we are in town.Suggestions:Chicken and fries, Roast beef sandwich, Antipasto, Pizza cheese on salads. Meat Ravioli's with White Sauce.
Great Pizza – We have been going to Chi-Chi's for over 25 years, and love their pizza. The crust, sauce and toppings are tasty and provided generously. Their sandwiches are also excellent, and reasonably priced. The pasta, in my opinion is not quite up to the level the pizza and sandwiches are, but it is still pretty decent. If you have not had pizza at this SFV institution, I suggest you give them a try. (Arrive early OR late if going on a Friday or Saturday night to avoid a long wait).
Yummy – I used to work here so I may be biased but I love it. I still eat there at least once a month. The pasta is made fresh daily and has a wonderful texture. I also love their tomato basil sauce. The pizza is great too. They also have a very well stocked bar.
