he invented CA pizza – the guy who owns this place basically invented CA-style pizza, but he doesn't get a lot of credit for it b/c the big man on the spago campus tends to take the credit (reference: your local super market freezer). i like this place b/c the prices are great, it's first come, first serve, free corkage and there's a mix of newfangled modern pies and old fashioned stuff (bone marrow pizza!). i'm not going to say it's the best pizza in town, but it is quite good. can get hot in summertime though. this is the valley!

Great at night for a dark, chill vibe – This place has great pizza and salads and is a good laid-back date place for a weeknight...then take a walk to the Gelato place next door! If you are from the East Coast do not expect authentic, but hey, this is Cali and they have developed a different style and this place tops the list in that area. Leave your pizza ego in NY and enjoy some great gourmet Cali style pizza. They also have a pretty cool soda selection with blue cream soda and some other neat ones. There is a salad there with mozzarella in it, I forget the name, but it's unreal!

Excellent customer service!! – Thank you City Search! I stumbled on this listing for being named the top BYOB---didn't even know there was such a place. Anyways I went this weekend on Saturday night (not forgetting my wine!!) the place was really busy, but we were sat within 15 min. I have to tell you this place is very small,but it has such a nice vibe they had nice blues and jazz playing and dim lights. Its kinda of like the when your here you family, I could tell that there were many regulars as they seemed to know the servers . There are only two of them and a guy working the register. They are definately in sync with eachother and so nice and helpful. The place offers 3 styles of pizza. We tried them all!! We had a new york, Old world Salsiccia, New World BBQ Chicken. All delicious!! We also had a an crab cake appetizer they were offering that night and a few salads--- I have to tell you though that if the service and the food wasn't so amazing I may have been upset that my salads came out after my pizza. As if we didn't have enough food we has Eric's famous desserts- YUM! It was really nice find a place with EXCELLENT service, and food!!

Caioti Pizza Cafe – Parking was a little hard. We just parked on the side street, make sure to read the signs. Some places you cannot park after 9pm.

We went on a Friday night and the place was packed. We had to wait about 15 minutes before we could get a table. But the host/cashier was very nice and sat us as soon as he could.

The waiter told us about the specials the chef came up with for that night. Sounded great but we wanted to try the pizza.

AMAZING! We are from New York and the pizza was great. We had one New York Style and one Old World Style.

But we must tell you, the service was outstanding. I read some reviews about it being "not so good" but the wait staff (Tanya, Rocky and the host??) were extremely warm. The chef even came out to make sure everything was ok. Because of this, we will be back at NIGHT......

Here is the kicker, we ended up coming from breakfast on Sunday. It was a total mess. The wait staff was what I had read about before, "not so good." So.... my suggestion: If you are going to go too Caioti, go at night. Look for Tanya, Rocky, Erik the Chef and the cashier (has crazy hair).

I just dont get it??????????????????????? – Went to this restaurant based on all the positive recommendations made on the citysearch site and was very underwhelmed. We went early on a Friday evening and the restaurant wasnt very busy and only one person came in while we were there. Ordered the NY style pizza with italian sausage, tomatoes and olives and it was as bland as can be. Ive had better pizza from pizza hut and without the drive or hard to find parking! Ive had good pizza in NY, Chicago, LA and Italy among other places and I cannot fathom why anybody would recommend this place. I generally believe a good crust makes a great pizza and the toppings are not really that important but this place has neither.

Their claim to fame seems to be "THE SALAD" which induces labor soon after a pregnant woman eats one. As a guy, this is unneccessary and I guess I'll stick with my usual pizza places.

P.S. you can skip the overpriced Gelato store near the restaurant also and get a better desert at Baskins & Robbins!

Terrific pizza, not so good service – Went there some time ago. We were promptly seated, however it took them about 15 minutes to take our order. It seemed like there was only one waitress taking care of the customers, while the manager was busy overseeing other stuff. We got our pizzas after another 30 minutes of solid waiting. It may have been busy, but there was no apology for the service. The pizza was terrific (fresh and flavorful), but the service just gave our first time experience a bad connotation. Still not sure if we're going back.

December 2008 Update: We returned for the pizza over the last 2 years, but both pizzas and service have gone downhill. Pizzas have become oily and the pizza area covered by toppings has become smaller and smaller. We just had last week a bad service experience with one of the female waiters and a rather aggressive attitude. This place can't live on its former glory forever...

Charming – Great neighborhood restaurant. The sun dried tomato pizza is fantastic and the The The Salad will knock your socks off. They do not serve alcohol but bring your own -- there is NO corkage fee!

Above average wait staff & DELICIOUS – This is a really great place to eat if you'd like a wonderful pizza and great customer service (which can be sometimes hard to find in L.A.)

highly recommended!!!

Deeelicious! – Growing up in the NY metro area my standards for pizza are quite high. I've found the pizza in this city to be disgusting at best, but thanks to a recommendation from a buddy of mine, this cozy pizza joint has been a weekly indulgence for me. Highly recommend the salads and pizzas without too many crazy toppings. I haven't tried the new york style pizza yet, but am looking forward to it at my next visit.
