This is the real deal! If you like NY style thin crust pizza - this is the "go to" choice. The balance between sauce cheese and crust is a symphony to behold! No frills dining - but hey, it's a pizza joint. Love the decorations that seem to have gotten from discarded Manhattan subway platforms. The staff is efficient, friendly and helpful. DEFINITELY worth a detour here if you have to get your NYC pizza fix satisfied!

I was craving a Chicago-style stuffed pizza, but didn't feel like driving elsewhere while in Westwood, so I decided on New York style instead at Lamonica's.

I bought a slice of mushroom and a slice of pepperoni. They satisfied my appetite and tasted like genuine New York pizza, although not quite as good as John's of Bleecker Street, one of the last coal-fired brick oven pizzerias in NYC.

This has been a Westwood institution for years. Great, fresh, awesome pizza. But a slice now is up to about $4/slice. It used to be half that!
Still a nice place to stop for a quick bite. Always good and the inside is old school N.Y. feel. I hope they never change it!

A friend brought me here. The pizza is really, really good. You can order up a whole pizza or by the slice. I'll definitely come back here when in the neighborhood...especially because they stay open late!

Worse part about this place is that the street parking can be a challenge...Warning: they issue "J-Walking" tickets in this area.

We love Pizza. Especially NY Pizza! MANY say NY Pizza but here they get their dough FROM NY. The difference is the NY water and the dough. I am from the east coast and the west coast often tries hard to make good pizza but Lamonicas is BY FAR the best. When ever I get close to LA I make sure I get to Westwood for a couple slices of Lamonicas pizza!
