We have been going to South End from the day they opened a few years ago and have never been disappointed. They have persevered through COVID-19 restrictions and continue to make the best pizzas, hit the mark on all other food items, and provide an outstanding wine selection in a range of prices. The owner, Mario, is there personally much of the time paying close attention to guests and service. Note that this is a small space with a small kitchen so make reservations and plan to take your time eating and enjoying good wine.

Went with my date, reservations at 8:00pm. We arrived at 8:02pm and there were no tables reserved. I understand the situation is tough with Covid, but then just dont take reservations. So, people visit with the right expectations, and probably make back up plans

A very interesting food selection and despite the difficulties of Covid19, they were very accommodating. Set up was out front as required by law, but they did a great job of creating a nice environment. Can't wait to go back when things return to normal.

We loved this place since it opened and Mario has always been so wonderful & generous. We often complimented him on how it was the Westside rival to Pizzeria Mozza. Which is a huge compliment as it is one of LA’s best. It’s been about 6 months since our last visit and I hate to say although the service and ambiance was on par as before, sadly the pizza was not! Both pizzas we ordered were very dry and the crust was hard and difficult to chew. They reminded me of the frozen mini pizzas we use to heat up in the microwave as kids. The meats on top were also dry and not as flavorful as before. Not sure if it was just an off night or he changed the recipe of the dough, but it was terrible. The couple next to us heard our complaints and said they have been back twice now in the past couple of months and noticed a major difference too. I know he just had a baby not long ago so perhaps he has not been able to be as hands on, but I doubt we will waste the calories again for a re-do sadly. :(( Shame...as consistency is the key to success in this often fragile “mom & pop” business concept.

Best pizza on the west side! Staff is amazing, pizza is fantastic, great wine menu. All of the pizzas are fabulous, but the potato pizza is surprisingly one of my favorites. I can’t wait to go back now that SIP order has been lifted.

Very different, fun place. Come for the pizza - stay for the wine. Attentive, high energy staff. Somewhat close quarters, so come with friends. And can probably get noisy, so come with close friends. Very enjoyable terrific food and a very different, very neighborhood type of feel. Highly recommended.

I had a date on Friday that turned me into a new fan of South End. I expected nothing out of the ordinary, but ended up having some of the best pizza ~ gluten-free even! The sauce on the pizza was THE BEST SAUCE I have EVER had on a pizza. It reminded me of my Italian Mother's homemade sauce for meatballs and pasta!
The staff was super friendly and made us feel like we were guests in their home. The owner, Mario, greeted us at the door and let us in. Super nice guy who cares about his business. My date knew him from a nearby bar that he also owns, The Roosterfish.
The wine selection was really impressive too! We noticed that they also have their label on a few different bottles of wine, which tells me that they really take their wines seriously.
Also, I should note that the appetizers and salad selection looked great! We had the Caesar's Salad and it was excellent! 2 real anchovies found their way to the top of the salad ~ a perfect amount to be authentic!
I can't wait to go back and try more pizzas. This time, I'll ask for extra sauce!

Great place if you like lots of energy and a crowd. If you're young and can hear well over a ton of noise and don't mind sitting in a super crowded place, then this is your kind of place. The good was very good, but the noise level and super small, crowded table and aisle were less than enjoyable for us. Probably better to go at times other than a weekend night.
