Want to rub elbows with every hipster in town? Want to have the most amazing pizza? Well if so, you've got to try Pizzana. Candace Nelson and her husband, the owners of Sprinkles, and actor Chris O' Donnell own the
place, and let me tell you it's hopping!
Brentwood is alive and well and you'd better make a reservation or you'll wait forever. The restaurant only seats about 40 people. We started with the Cesare Salad (their
spelling, not mine!) with little gem, fried capers, parmigiano, pizza croutons and a Calabrian Caesar vinaigrette. To. Die. For! This salad was spectacular and something about the fried capers made it taste even better. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better
Caesar on the westside!
We enjoyed the Amatriciana pizza with housemade amatriciana sauce, fior de latte, crispy prosciutto, red onion, and shaved parmesan. Pizza is good sized and crust is magnificently crispy.
Dough is made by hand in the Neopolitan style, then fermented and proofed for two days. And boy can you tell! This was a most delicious pizza and we polished off the whole pie! Be sure to follow up with the chocolate olive oil cake. It's amazing!
Service was excellent, and Adam, our server made sure we had everything we needed. Candace Nelson is very sweet, and so is the hostess at the front. We will be returning very soon! Pizzana 11217 San Vicente Blvd.
