great grocery store, They got lots of items to choose and very helpful staffs.
Both times I have gone with friends we split pizzas. The margarita is wonderful and I like the unique flavor of the lime & avocado pizza. Genius! I am craving the salted chocolate chip cookie. Uh-maze-ing! I just love it! The sandwiches look gorgeous. I am going to try a sandwich on my next LGO adventure. This place is always packed with customers. I HIGHLY recommend!
Relaxing and informal – Stopped for a beer sitting outside after cycling. Friendly hip and comfortable.
interesting concept – The menu includes bakery items, sandwiches, salads, and pizza. I tried a strawberry muffin for breakfast one day and it was excellent ($2.50 for a large muffin). I also tried the shaved turkey sandwich for lunch one day. It was excellent and came with a small cup of cut strawberries. The place was very busy each time I went (even off-hours). The parking is the only negative (very little)
Worth Waiting In Line! – Had dinner with a friend here (the Pizzeria, not the market) on a Sunday night in August. We parked directly in front of the door! There was essentially no wait when we arrived, though there was a full house and a quick moving line formed shortly thereafter.
My only complaint is that due to our small party of two, we were seated at the smallest table I'd ever seen which was awkward to eat at due to its triangular shape. The server was friendly and attentive.
If you've heard anything about the pizza here, you'll already know it was so good it'll make you forget the somewhat high price tag (for pizza.) But let me say, the salad was amazing! (I'm sorry I don't remember exactly what is was called.) Not only was it prepared with fresh ingredients, but I'm typically disappointed with restaurant salad dressing. Thier's is not too bitter; not too sweet. L.G.O. got it right!!! Best salad dressing I've had in a restaurant in years! Oh, and the salad portion is plenty for two to share as an appetizer of as a meal for one. Can't wait to go back for more! :)
Great food! – I love this place! I am a frequent patron and have yet to be disappointed. Their pizza with the sourdough crust is oh so yummy! The desserts are fantastic and the salads always look so good yet I cannot break away from the pizza to try them. The market portion has a great choice of imports from wine to cheese. Plus they always have interesting knickknacks to browse as well. Yes they do get busy and anyone should understand that on the weekends you may have a wait. It sure beats the 3 hour wait at Pizza Bianco!!! Granted lots of businesses are busy on weekends. Parking is a little tricky at these times and the lots are small. If you don't want to valet you can usually find parking in the surrounding neighborhood it's not that bad of a walk.
One of my Fav's!!!! – I love this place, not only the Pizza, but all the wine and other things they sell! It is a great place that is so different from what most of Arizona has going on!
One word - Gladiator – The Gladiator pizza is amazing. I really love going here, the food is always fresh and the salads are so different.
Smart Idea – I live about 5 minutes from LGO. However, I reallly dont care how close I live I am never going there again. I agree, the music is annoying and "TOO LOUD." I practically had to scream to the cashier lady and she still couldnt hear me. The lady then got very rude and ended up getting our order all wrong. The Havana Latte is pretty good. I recommend that. I noticed LGO raised their prices about $2 on every item. The notebooks in there used to cost $10 now they cost $12. And the pizzas were raised a bunch. Dont go here is you have an hour and a half. You are better off going down the road the Chelsea's Kitchen or The Vig just south of that. Never order one of Tammy Coe's cake. Even though they look awesome, dont get fooled by the price. The tiny cakes range from $20 to $30. Not very smart. But if you go next door to Arleccino Gelateria, you will die for their gelatoes. Awesome.
One of Phoenix's Best! – If you like gourmet pizza, then you will love La Grande Orange. The corn and goat cheese was a surprisingly good combo and I order it whenever I feel like spoiling myself. They also have the BEST cupcakes i have ever tasted! They are called ooey-gooey or some stupid name like that, but man are they good!! Normally I don't like too much frosting on my cupcakes, but I am so glad they load it on here- it's so tasty! The only real complaint I have about this place is the parking is awful. If you order a pizza, you should have someone drive you so you can run in while they drive around because spots are few and far between! The prices aren't real cheap, but it is reasonable for gourmet food. They also have lots of fun objects/foods to shop.
