PLAYA – EATS:

The Good Pizza

Founded in 2008, The Good Pizza began its operation from a quaint corner in Westchester, a suburb west of Los Angeles, California. Our superb Neapolitan-style pizza took the neighborhood by storm when we opened our doors to a mass of hungry pizza lovers, excited and eager to try out the best pizza they ever had. The Italian pizza concept at The Good Pizza is just simply the best with our flavorful and palatable pizza combinations made daily in a real brick-burning oven with fresh ingredients hand-picked daily by one of the Nando the Chef. With the explosive taste, tremendous freshness, and top quality, The Good Pizza delivers the real deal of Gourmet Pizza because we truly got our pizza mojo down and we say no to cheap and tasteless imitations.

12. ** A recent trip to Main Street in Santa Monica was shocking! So many stores out of business – Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Arts & Letters, Sam’s Bagel store, Rick’s Tavern. It goes on and on and on. It looks like a ghost town. So sad. —- Nancy L., Marina del Rey
