they have a great selection of food here. they have a menu that stays the same, but each season they offer something new up on their chalk boards. but the food here is great, you really can't go wrong, and they have sangria and beers too which is awesome when you want to grab a lunch with a friend. the service is always good too.
Good pizza – ummmm good....i really liked the pepperoni they use its pretty spicy and tastes great....I recommend this place
Great pizza! – This place is almost like an oasis in this drab part of town. I love sitting outside on the patio and the pizza is very yummy! I always make my own pizza with grilled chicken, kalamata olives, and spinach - delicious and somewhat healthy for pizza!
Best pizza anywhere. great customer service. Be specific: Generalities like "lazy service" or "tasty pizza" leave people wanting more detail. Be yourself: If you're an expert on burgers, let us know. If this is your first-time massage, say so.
You pay for better ingredients, and its worth it. – I ordered the grilled chicken panini and thought it was very enjoyable. It came with a fresh side salad of greens and a light dressing with generous slices of Parmesan cheese. It felt light and fresh, some may think that it's not good because they are used to cheesy, greasy, mayonnaise/ranch soaked sandwiches. Those that appreciate good ingredients will like it here.
Those who complain about portion size or amount of cheese need to realize that in good pizza, loads of cheese isn't seen as good. It's about the balance of flavors in the crust, sauce, and toppings.
Those that think the servings aren't large enough need to learn what a serving size actually is. Some might think its no big deal to woof down an entire medium pizza hut deep dish, but in reality its 10-12 servings of food. Pitfire is more than generous with their servings.
The reason for not giving this 5 stars is that I felt the menu layout was not helpful for a newcomer and the service was mediocre.
Molded Tomatos and Poor Customer Service – We visited Pitfire Sunday Oct 21st for lunch. We ordered two small pizzas and split a caprese salad. Although I'll definitly say the food came out within 10 minutes which was great, the rest of our experience was crappy.
First, I asked the lady at the counter for a parmesean cheese shaker, and she abruptly replied "They're out on the tables. Just go ask someone who's not using them." Then she turned around started bagging cookies. So I amused her, went outside - there were two shakers - one in someone's dirty plate & another at a table being used. I went back to her and politely asked for my own cheese - they're being used - and she slapped me three take-out cheeses without a word.
Onto the food:
We both noticed the heirloom tomatoes were a little smushy, but then happen to catch site of a 1-inch chunk of MOLD on the top of one of the slices. I brought the plate back to the counter and told the cranky employee that there is mold on the Caprese/heirloom tomatoes. The exact response was "Well, I have to get my manager. Maybe we can make you a new one." Not - sorry - nothing and "maybe"?? The manager comes over (lady) and says "It looks fine - what's wrong with it???" I asked her to look for the big white/grey chunk of mold. Again, no apologies, nothing. She turned & asked the cooks (who shook their head when I returned the food) to make a new Caprese. Since I'm certain they'll use the same molded tomatoes, I asked for a refund & explained my concerns. Without a word, she refunded me $10.55.
One pizza (chicken, goat cheese, mushrooms) was pretty good. I ordered a Pepperoni & Mushroom which came out Pepperoni only & LOADS of grease. This could be from the pepperoni or if they used olive oil. But the whole center of the pizza did not stay together and was soaked in orange, drippy grease.
Overall, you can find much better, tasty, quality pizza and service at Dino's in Burbank. We'll never be back & don't recommend this place to anyone.
Advice about going to this place: DON'T!!!! – Overpriced, overrated.
Yeah, the place was nice. Yeah, the crust was good, the ingredients tasted fresh. But the pizza was TOO small for $11, and they barely put any cheese on it! The freaking thing was all red from the sauce and had like 2 or 3 small white spots of cheap cheese. Horrible thing. Never going back there.
You want a real pizza for good value? For those same $11 l wasted last Saturday, stay straight on Magnolia Blvd towards Burbank, and stop at Monte Carlo restaurant. Best pizza in town.
Great Thin Crust Pies in a Cool Outdoor Setting – We went on a Satruday night for a casual bite. On the corner of Lankershim and Magnolia, in a park-like setting with outdoor seating, tall trees, individual, Italian pizzas with wine by the glass (in a plastic cup) and an open-air esspresso stand - we felt like we were in Italy. With lots of people on the street, families having dinner, people out on a date or just enjoying a leisurely dinner and conversation and live music, as well - it was great! The food was really good and the price was right. We went to Mario Batali's new pizza "hot spot" last week and this tasted no worse. We'll be back many times.
Great Pizza, Perfect Salad, Excellent service – Tasty thin crust pizza. Fresh local ingredients. My favorite is the wild mushroom pizza with a Mediterranean salad. I am afraid I could eat it daily and never get tired of the flavors. So fresh it feels healthy.
Simply Delicious – This pizza is exceptional. I have traveled all over southern Italy eating pizza, & these guys have it right here in LA, only it's better. Everything served here is fresh. The cheese & plate is wonderful. The mac & cheese to die for. And now they have great wines & great prices to pair with your food. Fab time all around!
