I have to admit, Pizza Buona's crust is the best in the Silverlake/Echo Park area WHEN it comes straight out of the oven. The problem is that they add an entire bag of cheese on the pizza, and with all that oil soaking into the firm wood-oven crust, crust quickly collapses.
We ordered a pepperoni pizza - 1/2 green peppers and 1/2 mushrooms. As you can see from the picture, it's hard to tell what toppings we ordered because it's covered with cheese!
After all that cheese and blotching, the pizza was still pretty good. Then why am I not rating it higher?
When the lady came back to refill our ice tea, her pitcher was frozen ice tea!!! I think my eyes popped out and my jaws dropped...so does this mean that their fridge is so cold that the fresh brew tea turned to a giant popsicle or does this mean that they pre-make their tea, freeze it, and when in use, thaw it out....no wonder why the tea tasted weird.
It would have been nice if they played some music too...they have a juke box but is up to the customers to supply the music???
Service was...eh. If you get here early, you might luck out and grab one the few parking spaces. CASH only. They don't sell pizza by the slice.
