The OpenTable Team

People come from around the globe to enjoy Los Angeles’s balmy climate, and the area is bustling with activity around the clock.

Neapolitan, Sicilian, Chicago, and New York pizza traditions are well-represented, and chefs frequently incorporate unique California flavors into old favorites. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists. We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable’s most expert, seasoned diners. Sample the pies that made our top list to find the best pizza in LA.
