Mama Mia!! – Well first of all I am not a big fan of pizza, but when I heard about this place, I had to try it and what a delight. The Pizza was like none I had before so I went back and tried other delights and so far, after experimenting for about a month,I havenot been disappointed. The service is good and the atmosphere is great. Totally
home style and comfortable for big or small parties or just your lonesome. Casual dress and friendly people. I
even got to meet the owner, who came up and introduced himself and his wife. Right at home here with great food, parking lot small but they have arranged for customers to park across the street if their lot is full. Get out and have a grand time.
Great Pizza...service could be a lot better – I had been driving past this restaurant and always wanted to try it. Today we had a bacon pizza, a pepperoni pizza, hot wings and an anti-pasto salad. We washed it down with whire belgian ale that was frosty cold. The pizza is VERY good. It's hard to find good wood fire pizza on the west coast, and this is a gem when it comes to that. The crust is delicious and the toppings were good quality. The wings were actually quite good too! Well spiced and didn't taste frozen or generic. The decor is unique, and if you are a local of the Silverlake / Los Feliz area you will appreciate the pictures of the area dating back to the 1800's. Our only complaint was that the service was quite slow. We had to get up a few times to find our server sitting near the back to get a few more pints. We also had to look for her to get the check. If the service gets better, the place will be an awesome place to eat and have some tasty cold beers. I'm willing to give it another shot.
My favorite LA pizza joint – I'm from New York. It took me awhile to find a good, east-coast style wood-fired, thin,slightly charred crust pizza. This place does it well enough. It would rank a 7 out of 10 in NYC, which is good enough for out here. Highly recommended.
Great pie! – Great neighborhood joint. The pizza is perfectly cooked, the sauce is well spiced (and thankfully not sweat) and the toppings are fresh & of good quality. A great find.
Terrible delivery experience! Bad food & bad customer service – Everything that could have went wrong did. The food showed up over a half an hour late and very cold. We ordered mannicotti and received mislabled cannelloni instead, WITH CHICKEN IN IT, FOR A VEGATARIAN!!!! Any food that made my friend physically ill is not something I'll recommend. Besides that the pizza was flavorless and very small. The topper was calling to let them know and being told that there was no manager by some snotty high school aged sounding girl who didn't bother to apologize and offered a credit for an individual pizza as compensation, an $8 credit for a $40+ completely terrible meal.
I love Nicky D's! – This is my first review, but I just had to voice my opinion about Nicky D's. I've traveled all over the states. No matter where I am, I always keep an eye out for good thin crust pizza like one can get in New York. After moving to LA, I was lucky to find Nicky D's not too far from my neighborhood. It's one of the best pizza's I've ever had, which is saying quite a lot. His pizza is always crispy. The crust is delicious.The topping never overwhelm and are never overwhelmed by the crust. I've never had a soggy pizza there. Based on my extensive experience with Nicky's pizza, I think that the previous reviewers that posted such horrible reviews sound like unscrupulous competitors.
Really Disappointing – The variety of toppings really got my hopes up, but the basic pizza itself was terrible. First of all - totally soggy, squishy crust - blech. Secondly - NO TOMATO SAUCE. I mean , I went looking for it, but this pizza was just a blanket of gooey cheese with toppings on top. Don't get me wrong - I love cheese, but when it comes to pizza, you need a nice ratio of tomato to cheese, and this place just fails utterly. It's a pity - charming place, promising-looking menu...but lousy pizza.
Bordering on Irrelevant – What happened to this place.. Did this place do downhill. .or rather did better places spring up. The place has poor service, soggy lamp heated pizza, incompetent managers and lazy wait staff. No wonder new places like Tomato Pie Pizza is full. I think these guys totally dropped the ball...
This place couldn't be worse. – I have given this place four tries. Only one time did I have a good meal and Ok service.... The other three times became progressively worse. Don't even think about complaining to the manager/owner. He wa son the verge of being a pig. The orders are NEVER correct and the two waitresses I have had could care less. I will never go back.
Nicky D's was once terriffic; now it is bordering on poor – Nicky D's used to be great. Truly great. Consistently terrific pizza, gelato, and atmosphere.
Then about a year ago Nick yuppified the place. And then Nick stopped coming to the restaurant during the rush hours. So not only is there no Nick, but now there is no leadership. The folks who are now running Nicky D's are simply not interested in customer service (not the wait staff, though, they are usually good).
I typically order takeout b/c Nicky D's is on the way home from work. I call about 20-25 minutes before I am to arrive to give them time to prepare the pizza. The last four times I have been there, something has been wrong. The most common error is that they didn't make the pizza right. For example, on the Margherita (their best pizza in my opinion) they forget the bazil, or forget to cook it, or put pizza sauce on it. And by the time you get home, what can you do.
Today was my last time going to Nicky D's. I ordered a pizza 20 minutes before I arrived. I walked in, paid, and walked around to wait. About 10 minutes later I walked to the front and saw the cooks putting my pizza in the oven. Thirty minutes after I ordered it! And 10 minutes after I got there.
Worse, not a single waitstaff apologized for the wait or said a thing. I informed the "manager" of the delay and he just said "yeah."
Nick. Come back. Please. Your restaurant is going waaaaaaaaaayyyyy downhill without you.
And fire that guy -- possibly the manager -- with the black hair and the black rimmed glasses. He was absolutely no help at all. Made me want to leave without my pizza, but I already paid.
