After finding a parking spot, you DESERVE a treat! – I live about 5 blocks away from this place, and I've been there twice -- I had a great experience each time. If you've ever been to this area (La Poubelle, Bourgeois Pig, Birds, etc.) then you know the sheer hell that is the parking situation. You basically have one choice: valet. Otherwise, expect to circle around the block for about an hour, jockeying for position with the valets, the hipster scooter brats, and the unemployed actor scrubs in Saturns with out-of-state-plates. That being said, try to get a table on the upper level - it's a bit more intimate and less noisy. Try the arugula salad with balsamic vinegarette-- it's yummy. Order some wine -- they have plenty of selections. Have a dessert. Then pop a few Xanax, down a vodka shot and prepare to do battle back on the street...
Best Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in L.A. – Great neighborhood dining in the always buzzing but never pretentious Hollywood foothills next to the Tamarind Theatre, Birds, etc. Decent Italian selections, but stick to the pizza -- especially their deep-dish, it's to die for. Sardinia salad is fantastic. Been going here for six years -- consistently excellent. Great ambiance, good wines by the glass. Full bar. Try the Canadian beer, Maudite, served in a snifter -- always satifsying.
Best Pizza in LA, Great atmosphere and crew – As an ex-NYr, I would tell you I know from Pizza. Well, after trying many pizzas around the greater LA area, Prizzi's is hands down the best.
The crust is nice and thin (they also sell a pretty good thick crust too), the cheese and sauce are just right, and they will put nearly anything you want just to top it off.
Try it for yourself!
You have got to be kidding? – By accident I stumbled onto city search because I use msn and they were rating pizzas. I come from a Sicilian family and have eaten pizza all my life. Prizzis hands down has some of the best pizza in LA! I have tried some of the other recomendations with higher scores and many of them pale in comparison. Their thin crust is superb with a wonderful selection of ingredients and their deep dish is amazing. City Search's rating of 8.5 for pizza is absurd. Prizzi's for pizza is easily a 9.6 or better. It is the real deal.
great neighborhood restaurant – I live a few blocks away and Prizzis has become a favorite of mine. The food and wine list are great. The restaurant is cozy and romantic and the prices are very reasonable.
An extraordinary wine list meets Italian fare in a cozy, dimly lit Hollywood bistro. – In Short
Smack-dab in the center of Franklin's artsy sector, exposed-beam ceilings look down on concrete floors. Small tables snuggle close together, and oversized, colorful paintings hang from the walls. Most patrons come for dinner; others wander between Prizzi's, Bird's and La Poubelle downing beers or sipping cocktails at each stop. Wine drinkers appreciate the extensive list, which boasts more than 250 labels. Gourmet pizzas are either paper-thin or deep-dish, and pastas are served as well.
Great Pizza! – Coming from New York, I was seriously missing good pizza. I ordered a small pie with garlic and pepperoni at Prizzi's, and I have to tell you, it's one of the best in LA. It's got a great, cozy, dimly lit atmosphere in the evenings. There's also seating on the sidewalk in people watching on Franklin is your thing. It's moderately priced, but a good value for the money.
Great Dining Experience! – One evening I enjoyed their Lasagna. It was covered with sauce and very tasty. Another nite I had their more traditional fare...spaghetti with a special meat sauce. Again outstanding!
Nice selection of wines. Although I didn't sit outside that was an option.
The service was very good and everyone was quite attentive.
I will return on my next visit to L.A.
good food but.... – The food and wine were great - and love sitting in the little outdoor cafe area along that stetch of franklin -
the actual restaurant is cute and comfortable.
The service however sucked. Apparently we were seated in a "closed section" so the other servers had to pick up our table and obviously were not happy about it.
GREAT pizza – Pasta and salads are very good, but the pizza is to die for. Toppings are fresh and submarined under the cheese (instead of the other way around). Pepperoni pie is killer.
