In 2010 the European Union registered Neapolitan pizza as a Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) product. It stipulates that certified “Pizza Napoletana TSG” must consist of a base of twice-leavened, hand-shaped dough (no rolling pin), no wider than 35cm. It must be 0.4cm thick at the centre and 1cm-2cm around the rim. It may be garnished in just three ways: with tomatoes and extra-virgin olive oil, or with certified mozzarella from either buffalo’s or cow’s milk. It must be baked and eaten on the spot, not frozen or vacuum-packed.
The square pizza is still awesome. *****
North Hollywood, CA
The square pizza is still awesome. The toppings great and the crust is perfect. Now I need to try the white clam pizza.
One of the best pizzas around. *****

The square pizza is awesome! One of the best pizzas around. I don't much care for the round pizzas. They use different ingredients I guess. Service is always fast and nice.
The Naples style pie is the best pizza I've had in LA! *****
Sherman Oaks, CA
Have lived around the corner from Santino's for over a decade and just had it for the first time a few weeks ago. We've ordered four times since!
The Naples style pie is the best pizza I've had in LA! The ingredients seem very high quality and the ratio of crust to sauce to cheese to toppings is perfect! It is not the cheapest, but well worth the cost. Highly recommend!
Best pizza in Los Angeles. *****
Sherman Oaks, CA
Great staff, awesome delivery and most importantly - the best pizza in Los Angeles. This is undeniably the closest replicant to New York pizza that I've tasted, Valley or City. Make sure you get the Neapolitan square pizza…
The pies are thin, light on the sauce & cheese, with the perfect balance of flavor and texture - with responsible use of toppings. The pizza is moderately "pricey" for Los Angeles but you are literally paying for the best pie in town.
