Jacopo’s Pizzeria

The last pizza place in Beverly Hills I could find was Jacopo's.  It was right down the street from the Mulberry Street Pizzeria.  So it had a lot to live up to.    
I went inside and noticed it had a different feel to it, much more fitting for Beverly hills.  Red leather booths and chandeliers, kind of like your typical old italian restaurant but with more of a trendy vibe.  Anyway that doesn't matter.  The pizza is a bit over priced, 3.50 for a slice and $18 for a large.  I got a slice of cheese and it wasn’t too bad.  It reminded me of a place called Combo’s on Hollywood Blvd.  Nothing special.  They put a little too much oregano on it to over compensate for the lack of flavor.  The crust was thin but a little greasy, flopping and drooping as I ate it. I wan’t too impressed with this but it was better than the worst.  But definitely not better than the place down the street.

  1. Jacopo's has been in Beverly Hills for forty years, it is the best and it is the first pizza place in Beverly Hills, you need a history lesson about this town, you are not from around here and you need to learn how to spell before you rate pizza.

  3. There is a lot of anger coming from your love of Jacopo's. It is about 40 years old indeed, perhaps the first I am not sure of this. This site isn't about pizza history, it is about reviews. The fact that it is the oldest does not make it good. I'm glad you like it though.

    Thanks for pointing out my typo, I fixed it.

  4. Give me a break! Before someone dares to write a (very well-done, IMHO) blog about LA pizza, someone honestly says "You need a history lesson about this town" -- a town known for having the worst pizza in the country?! I've lived here 25 years, and Jacopo's popularity with some has always amazed me. It's greasy, soggy, bland - basically it's a Domino's pizza, but with a Beverly Hills address. I can only imagine that its success is attributable to a high-traffic address and the fact that they deliver to the many businesses in that area - along with the fact that many are reluctant to change. Maybe it has been here 40 years, but given the fact that there are over a dozen better places within a 5-mile radius, who cares?! If you just can't leave the BH Golden Triangle, at least go to Mulberry, which is far superior, or Joe's, Vito's, well - given that I'm trying to list places better than Jacopo's, this list could go on and on and on....
