DeSano Pizzeria

Neapolitan-style pizzeria DeSano brings a true taste of Italy to LA. And we're not just saying that: mozzarella di bufala (buffalo mozzarella) is flown in fresh from a small town in Campania, flour is shipped over by boat, salt is gleaned from the Mediterranean Sea, and their handmade wood-burning ovens are supposedly made with "volcanic rock from Mount Vesuvius". They'll be ready with your order in all of sixty seconds, so you'll have plenty of time to mingle inside the spacious dining room, or get back to work in a hurry.

Love the food, the service and the fire in the fireplace :) My girls always enjoy going here... my little one says "They have the best pizza and ice cream!"

Accessible for all people of all ages. The dough is supreme. Super fun, chill, and easy. A great community vibe and plenty of parking. I have seen bdays celebrating 70 year olds and 3 year olds. Every one loves the pizza though pump out. They have a room just devoted to dough making.

Great open dining room where you can bring large groups and watch them make the pizzas

Best pizza in LA, super friendly vibe, a comedy show on Fridays, and a parking lot to boot.

outside it looks like a potential meth lab. inside, there is fresh gelato and amazing pizza. really fresh ingredients and authentic combinations. be warned that you can't substitute- you really don't need to, they have it down.

Best food! Best desserts! Best service!!! I love this place and would eat here every week if I didn't live in Orange County.


Desano is one of the best classic American style pizza you can get in Los Angeles. I would definitely recommend ordering the Desano, which is topped with sausage, peperoni, garlic, caramelized onions, scamorza, mozzarella, and pecorino romano. Delicious!

The ingredients are unbelievably fresh. The crust, baked to perfection. The seating area is spacious and airy. An incredibly needed change from the ongoing claustrophobia currently happening in the L.A. restaurant scene. If you are looking for a refreshing change of pace, and a REALLY good pizza, I can't recommend enough.
