Old Style and New Style Napolitano Pizzas

Love it!! Been here just two times now, the last being this past Sunday while visiting my baby niece and her parents, and I’ve loved it every time.

Here’s what I loved about it:

  • Cigar boxes with silverware and napkins. – Cute!
  • Seating inside or outside – very chic!
  • Great for families because they do have high chairs for babies.
  • Very casual hipster ambiance located just a few doors down from the uber trendy Aroma Coffee & Tea.

Here’s what I’ve had here:

  • Grilled Beet Salad with seared Goat Cheese and candied walnuts is divine. I think its the dressing that makes their’s unique as I prefer their Beet Salad over a few other places I’ve had it. Although, I never knew you could sear goat cheese. Hmm…
  • Garlic knot bread are like these little dough balls covered in garlic and better. Best when they’re fresh, which I had when I came here for dinner the first time. I could barely keep my hands off of them! But when i came here again at about 3-4pm for a late lunch/early dinner, they were rather stale. :( So not sure really what’s up with that.

Their pizzas are categorized as New Wold, Old World and New York Style Pizzas. I don’t have to explain NY style, but both the new and old world are thin crust with no sauce. Sounds like the Napolitano style pizzas I love.

  • First time, my group ordered the Old World Con Funghi which contains Sugo Porcini, Roasted Garlic, Fresh Arugula, Pecorino Romano & Mozzarella Latte. ~ Very good!!
  • Second time, my sister in law and I shared the Salsiccia Old World pizza which consisted of Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, Gorgonzola, Mozzarella Latte, Fresh Basil & Pine Nuts. This would have been better with some sweet fennel and a tangy red sauce. We did ask for some sauce on the side, and together, THAT, was really yummy.

Our bill for the evening for 1 iced tea, one large pizza and one beet salad was just $32 with tax and tip for 2 people.

I’m glad to have discovered this pizza joint and glad that its within walking distance when I’m out in the Valley.

Grilled Beet Salad

Their beet salad is so far my FAVORITE of all the beet salads I’ve eaten!! Yummy!

Friendly Neighborhood Pizza and Then Some

I have been coming to Caoiti Pizza since I ettled in the Valley about 15 years ago and I am never disappointed-with the food at least. It’s part of the charming Tujunga Village, a quaint one block of retail shops, yoga studios, small stage theater and across the street from the infamous Vitello’s.

Some will say the service could be better, they are very friendly, however slow. It can be somewhat discouraging since it is a first come first served establishment, but with right timing you can almost be seated right away and just eat at a leisure pace.

It is a pet friendly venue and kind of the small side with probably less than 10 tables, sidewalk seating with 4 tables. You may bring your own beverage, in fact they encourage you to bring sodas, water, beer or wine with no corkage fee, They do offer the standard sodas but take advantage of the no corkage rule while you can.

My preferred dishes are pretty predictable here and some of the long time servers will always know what I will order first hand – the Warm Grilled Beet Salad. One of these days, I will have to order other non-pizza items, but I just can’t resist their pizzas.

I did hear somewhere that the original owner or chef was the first one to originate the BBQ Chicken Pizza and that CPK and Wolfgang had asked him for the recipe. Don’t know if it’s true, but it’s a nice story.

Parking is pretty easy, you can find non-metered street parking on just south of that block.

Grilled Beet Salad

Their version is so delicious and refreshing, a combination of warm beets, goat cheese, candied pecans with a sweet balsamic vinaigrette. I now imitate this type of salad for all my dinner parties.

Pizzetta Bianco

Thin crust of heaven topped with goat cheese and flax seeds and another ingredient I can’t quite identify.

Pizza Del Mare

A seafood lover’s dream. It is a thin crust pie consists of crab, shrimp lobster topped with pesto, basil, tomatoes and mozzarella.


Another thin crust – see my pattern? Spinach, Pecorino, Pancetta and I always request roasted garlic and porcini mushrooms to be added. Aaaw, so gooood.

Not the best pizza I’ve had by a long stretch. My pizza margherita was soggy and tasteless.
