Not NY, but still great – I agree that this pizza is not NY pizza. But for those of us stuck on the west coast its as good as it gets. the pizza is flavorful, crispy and dirt cheep.
Best Pzza in the Westside! – Lamonica's is the best pizza in the Westide and possibly even all of LA (I havent tried them all so I couldnt say). Their dough is flown in from NY and the ingredients are sooo fresh. I am obsessed with the pizza and the service is fast and friendly and they even deliver!
Coming from someone who knows Pizza – the pizza is pretty good for the price i guess. But my parents own two authentic Italian deli's and I've eaten pizza all my life. thus i get very analytical over the ingredients.
The sauce needs more taste and it seems that the cheese is ok quality. I tried to ricotta cheese and it was absolutely tasteless.
if you are looking for a place that fills you up with somewhat of a good taste.. then this is the place..
its a great place when coming home late from work or club.
Great NY pizza in LA – I am a big fan of thin-crust pizza (none of that thick, greasy stuff), so I fell in love with Lamonica's. It's a trademark spot in Westwood with its New York-inspired motif inside. Though they're thin, the slices are huge and the toppings are generous.
Great pizza! – LaMonica's has delicious pizza for totally reasonable prices - and when you consider their huge fan base, they MUST be good! The ambience is a little dive-y but fun with it's New York theme, with street-signs, pictures, etc. They also deliver, and are open late. Stop by here for a tasty slice while you're in Westwood.
Good pizza at fair prices! – The pizza scene on the Westside is a bit lacking, but Lamonica's is the standout! The pizza is consistant from one visit to the next and is loved by my 4 year old, my 11 year old and their grandparents! They are generous in their pricing for local school pizza parties and always very pleasant when delivering or eating in!
Not true NY pizza, but BEST in Westwood! – Setting this joint apart from other Westwood and Westwood Village pizza joints: large really is large; crust is thin (not true NY thin, though); crust to cheese to topping ratio seems just right; and when Lamonica's takes your order over the phone, they can understand what I'm saying, I can understand what they're saying*, and they find their way to my address right when they say they will. *P.S. I'm not dissing accents here, I'm just happy that at Lamonicas the phone connection / loudness of the shop / critical thinking abilities of the staff allow them to get my order right the first time. Period.
I love not getting too much dough / bread with my pizza and this is about as thin as pizza crust comes in the Westwood area.
Overrated – I am starting to doubt citysearch reviews because of this. It is "good" but it is by NO MEANS better than NEW YORK pizza. The dough is decent, but not true NY Thin. Lacks consistency(yes I've eaten it enough because of lack of other choices but eatin a slice does not make me crave more, and that disappoints me. The cheese quality is average and not fresh. Same with Tomatoes (CANNED), cheap Sausage, and sauce that lacks some ESSENTIAL herbs.
mmm mmm good – best ny style pizza in la & oc!!! their crust is really thin and crispy and the toppings are just perfection!!!
super yummy thin crust pizza – i love love love new york style thin crust pizza...and this place is the best i've found so far in la and oc!!!
