    A tiny, always packed bakery and cafe from the Rustic Canyon team. Expect seasonal small plates, impeccable baked goods, and some of the best pizza pies in the city. [Eater 38 Member]

    Upscale no frills bakery and pizzeria using local and organic produce and meats. They don't take reservations and seats purely on first come basis so if you want to bring a larger group come early.

    Zoe Nathan has a way with dough, be it bread dough or laminated dough, and her croissants are glorious examples of the genre, either plain, ham-and-cheese or Valrhona. Read more

    The garlic knot is a must! If you're a garlic lover--especially roasted garlic--you'll love it! Garlic and olive oil baked in bread that's tied in a knot at the top. Delicious!!

    This bright, airy spot does a fantastic breakfast with wood-fired asparagus with sunny-side up eggs, breakfast pizza with house sausage and potatoes, or a baked eggs skillet with pepperonata. Read more

    You can swap in egg whites without getting scowls from your server if you're trying to keep it light. If you're feeling the hurt of the night's past, opt for one of their Vietnamese iced coffees. Read more

    Menu has an enticing variety and good looking specials, tried the butternut squash soup which was very good and the pizza was probably the best mushroom pizza I ever ate.

    The garlic knot is a must for sure, also the margarita pizza is excellent. Also the desserts are delicious, specifically the pound cake and cinnamon bread pudding (special).

    The mocha tart made with Valrhona is to die for, as are the heirloom tomato panzanella with burrata and the garlic knot. Lovely, efficient and enthusiastic staff. Super place for dinner!

    Must go! So freaking delicious. Got the wood-fired roasted potato pizza which just melted in my mouth. Also got the daily brussels sprouts special which too was amazing.

    I keep thinking there's nothing better than ___ dish, then come back to discover a new favorite. The roasted potatoes with sunny side eggs is my latest pick. Get it with the optional sausage.

    The meals are just as good as the pastries. Start off with melon and parmaham salad and have the wood oven shrimp 👌🏽👌🏽

    Not strictly necessary to order pizza at all. But you probably should get a "garlic knot," which here is a hollow sphere of pizza dough, tied at the top with string and stuffed with garlic cloves. Read more

    crunchy artisanal bread-inspired pizzas offered margherita style or with toppings such as pork belly sausage and braised greens. Branzino ceviche with fennel is a surprise... Read more

    Do yourself a favor. Start with the off-menu selections on the chalk board. I come here at least once a week and I have yet to be disappointed. The chef rocks here.

    Lots of people talk about how great the food is here. What they don't say is that the coffee is great and staff friendly. So order a cup and strike up a conversation!

    This is the one pizza spot where you don't want to leave the crust on your plate. Get the house cured olives and dip the crust in the olive oil.

    I am especially keen on the straight-up Margherita and the mixed-mushroom, which involves a bed of melted Fontina, lemon zest, Parmesan, and thyme. Read more

    Go for the chicken meatballs each and every time - we always do. Great flavor, especially when the remaining sauce is scooped up with the house bread.

    Decent. Went on a Wednesday for around 6pm, no wait. By 7, there line was piling up, and they were rushing us out (while I understand the rush, we were still mid-meal & finishing our bottle of wine).

    Ohhhhhhhhh, the pies are SO GOOD here. But, the garlic knot is a necessity... just make sure that you have breath mints at the ready! ;)

    Order a side of mariners with the garlic knot and white sauce pizzas. Takes an amazing dish and makes it even better

    The Parmesan rind minestrone is one the best vegetarian soups I've ever had. Don't miss it!

    Do the garlic knot and the pork belly sausage pizza. Skip the chocolate cake - looks good but not moist.

    Amusingly the thing they had run out of, after waiting an hour for a table, was olives. Nice place, good pizza, friendly service, but go early or late to avoid a long wait (avoid arriving 8.30-9.00pm)

    The garlic knot has ruined me for all other garlic knots. It has also broken mt heart, because we are doomed to a long distance relationship. So worth the carbs.

    Never put garlic in the tomato sauce when you do pizza as an Italian tomato goes plain on pizzas that crust is for bread not for pizza

    Call ahead. It only has two tables. I think one table is named after Milo, the other Olive.

    Garlic knot is like a giant dumpling with garlic and olive oil inside. Super good!
