Best Food in Highland Park – The is one of the best places in Highland Park. The hidden Jewel Have never been disapointed. The prices are good Tina really put a nice touch to it with better lighting, Art Work & New Paint. Service a little so but it is worth the wait. LOVE IT
Order the Deluxe if you know what's good for you – I think any ex-east coaster (and in my case coast hopper) who's worth their salt is dedicated to the pursuit of finding the perfect pizza place.
We all have our must haves (fold-able, thinner than an iPhone, not too much sauce, or so much sauce you look like a hot mess while eating it). And Folliero's is the kind of place that fits my bill...
Sauce that's just right every time, thin crust that bubbles up and resembles a roll around the edges, enough cheese to satisfy this dairy lover, but not so much that you have to pat it down with napkin (a particularly gross method if you ask me).
Every time I walk in I'm greeted like they've been waiting for me. It's low key enough that my wild nephew can run-a-muck and no one cares, but cute enough (they feature local artists' work for sale) that you can bring a sweetheart for wallet friendly meal.
This is my favorite neighborhood, go to place... and they have wine and beer which doesn't hurt!
i've been coming here for years, and even if i haven't been in for months the waiters remember me!they are awesome. this isn't for the pretentious "oh my god" people who want it all organic and want to eat with their pinkies up. it's great food! best pizza ever! you can literary feed four people for like twenty bucks. love you guys.
GreaT pizza Joint! – great food, great service, fresh food! the waitor tony has been there for over 25years! & he always gives everyeone GREAT SERVICE! great man overall! nice to see the food cooked fresh in front of your eyes! very good prices!
Tastes like New York! – The pizza dough is light and the sauce is yummy! It is the closest I've found to eating pizza near St. Marks in the lower eastside of New York. If you request thin crust, they will make it for you. I could eat this stuff every day.
Disregard "Worst hole in the wall" – Obviously they are some tiresome Yuppies who belong on the Westside of LA. Sure, the ambience is strictly working class but the FOOD is what counts here, folks. And so what if the place hasn't had a decorating upgrade since dark woods and bullfighter motifs were the thing. Remember you are here for the food and the New York-style pizza won't let you down. So after indulging in the scrumtous vittles here you can take a designer bistro tour somewhere else. -Preferably on the Westside!
FINALLY REAL PIZZA – Go for the dough! The owner apparently comes in every morning to mix the dough privately (the secret family recipe). The dough, the sauce, and the cheese... the rest is just icing on the pie! Can't beat the prices. But don't be fooled: this is a "hole in the wall" pizza joint - no frills, not gonna impress anyone. It has an abundance of character (the waiters are a treat in themselves), yummy food, and cheap cheap prices. Have a beer/glass of wine and savor the pizza dough. Not for the dainty, healthy, low carb, "must have" organic Angelenos.
real pizza, really good!! – This is a real pizzaria with no attitude. Such good food! The old school ambiance harkens back to a day before mass delivery of pizza that tasted like the cardboard boxes it comes in. It's a pleasure to rediscover Highland Park and all it's perks.
Worst hole in the wall – After reading the previous reviews, we were excited to try some place new. The prices here are really cheap for a reason. The pizza was tasteless, had hardly any sauce, and the toppings were scarce. We had ordered salads, but when the pizza arrived, the waiter said "you ordered salads, right?" We said don't bother. We made the pizza low carb, as we just ate the toppings. The place had no ambience, was noisy and the phone kept ringing and ringing.
The Best Real Italian Eatery – Definitely the place for pizza and good food. You won't be able to compare the freshest ingredients Folliero's has to offer. You can see the pizza man tossing the pizza in the air... grating the block of real cheese - coz I don't get acnes when I eat at Folliero's unlike other pizza parlors. Their tomato sauce on lasagna, and other pasta dishes are magnificent! I've been coming to this place for about 28 years with the same faces (owner, waiter, cooker, etc.) Great service, reasonable cost, good food - definitely the best pizza in town, in Los Angeles area (and request their garlic powder - the BOMB). Try this place, you won't be disappointed.
