Delicous pizza! This is the only place I don't mind pizza greese. I don't have pizza all the time, but this is defintiely the place to have more than 1 slice. There are varieties, but I stick to the pepperoni here. Great staff too!

Pros: right on PIER ave @ beach, GREAT sicilian pizza

Cons: p..p HOLE NY people CLAIM pizza as birthRIGHT

From a native New Yorker, this pizza place has a lot of nerve calling it "New York" style pizza. The staff is very unprofessional. Heard the staff making lewd comments about teenage girls who were in the restaurant (concerned parents should not allow their teen age daughters to go here).

What's great about this pizza place is that its right by the pier and its open late! So once your done having fun at the pier, you can just walk across and get a table. It's a small spot, but its good!

Grrr... it's my fault. I did wander in half drunk on last Saturday night but I'm wondering how on earth 8 slices of pizza ( only two of which had topppings) and a vitamin water could come to 25 bucks? eh, the pizza there is good but i think its a bit overpriced...but then again you do get what you pay for when its 3 a.m. and the placed is packed. Next time I go here it will be on an afternoon where I can grab one or two slices and sit outside and people watch.

First of all Paisanos Pizza is the best pizza west of ny. Just take a look at all the best pizza and best slice awards that they have compiled over the years its countless. Best pizza in L.A., best pizza in southbay, best pizza ever and on and on. I have read some of the negative reviews and to be perfectly honest they sound like sour grapes and fabrication from some of paisanos local competition. Come on promised a delivery in 15 minutes any idiot knows that it takes that long just to make a pie. Hey these guys have been in business for a long time and they are always busy, that should tell you something about the food and the place. About the so called rude service, have you ever been to NY ?

Pros: Best Pizza around and the chicken parmesan and lasana is outstanding

Cons: Wish they had more Paisanos around

.

I've had worse and this place is definitely better than anything from a franchise pizza place. But it's not the best pizza in So Cal. Not even in the top 5.

Pros: Decent pizza

Cons: Nothing spectacular

Good for a slice, Great for take out -- the restaurant is small, so I usually bring it home for the clan....

The staff may be a little no-nonsense, but haven't found them to be rude. Their delivery is slow and unpredictable, dial in and pick it up yourself if you can...

Crumbly Sausage topping is a favorite

When I moved down to the South Bay from the valley I soon discovered that the restaurants were less than par. I couldn't find a decent deli, sushi bar or pizza place then someone told me about Paisanos. I was hooked at my first bite. The pizza crust was not thin and crispy nor doughy and chewy. The sauce has just the right amount of spice without being overpowering. The cheese is ample and they don't skimp on the toppings either. However, the service is less than desirable. When you call to place a order the girl who answers the phone is always real short and rude. You better not be starving when you place your order because the delivery time is never less than 50 minutes and has taken literally up to two hours. This place would be the best pizza place ever if they could only work on their customer service skills and hired more delivery drivers.

Cons: Rude staff and long delivery times

First of all, the pizza reviews for this place are under par. It must be the drunks at 2am stopping by after Pier Ave bars writing these fabulous reviews. Secondly, I have never encountered rude service in Hermosa Beach until eating at Paisanos. It's a shame that such an awful establishment sits in the middle of this fabulous beach city. Beware of the food and service before you go here!

Pros: We can run them out of business if everyone boycotts!

Cons: Long wait, rude, nothing to brag about

Rude Delivery Guy - stole our change!
Unacceptable Service
Undercooked and unsanitary!
Usually I do not take the time to write reviews but this particular incident cannot go unnoticed! We ordered a cheese pizza by delivery which was severely undercooked by the time it arrived (a 30 minute wait after we were promised 15 minutes). Having eaten pizza here before we were very disappointed at the quality. The cheese had separated completely from the dough which itself was rubbery without any flavor. I was just going to let it go but it had been so long since I'd had a good slice of pizza so I called to let them know what happened and kindly asked for a new pizza. We had to call back after waiting an hour. They had forgotten all about us, and that's putting it nicely! Finally after another 30 minutes we received the new pizza. The delivery guy wanted the old pizza back (disgusting) but I was happy to get rid of it! The second pizza was just as rubbery so we only had a slice after all that effort. Ten minutes later we got a call from a blocked number - it was the delivery guy leaving us a nasty voice mail over 2 minutes long! He rudely accused us of lying about the pizza to get a free one (mind you a pizza costs no more than the large tip he received). Never in my life have I witnessed such unexcusable behavior from a service employee. And no, Paisano's is not New York style pizza! I hope the owner and the rest of Hermosa Beach sees this post and takes their business to Pedone's down the street - which has better pizza anyway!

Being from NY, i miss my NY Pizza. this is as close as it gets. The prices for everything is great and if you just want some cheap italian, it is great. The chicken parm is awesome. The dinner salad is great. The owner is cool and the waitress is cool. One of the waiters has attitude but no place is perfect.

Pros: all food, pricing

Cons: crowded at 2 am

These people were horrible. I sat on hold for 15 minutes, got fed up and called back just to wait on hold for another 5. I was told 30-45 minutes for my food to arrive, called after an hour and half and was told five minutes. It is now 2 and a half hours since i ordered and I am still waiting for my no doubt cold pasta.

I am confused about the previous reviews. I am from the east coast and love New York style pizza. I would definitely not recommend this pizza! It was not thin crust as described, it was very thick and soggy. I also ordered their chicken wings and they were very dry and didn't taste very fresh. My husband describes it as chicken jerky. I would usually give restaurants a second chance, just in case they're having an off day, but I can't even do that for this pizzeria.

...Like A Paisano's pizza pie...it's amore....
Yeah the pizza is awesome and the restaurant is very conveniently located. Parking sucks if you're only looking to eat and split, but if you'r ealready there, definitely give it a shot! I really enjoy the White Pizza and The Baked Ziti Pizza is good too. Their salads are fresh and crispy, and the atmosphere is very umm.... California-quick cool, and (usually) friendly.

i moved here from new york 9 months ago and was having the hardest time finding a pizza place that was true to the name "new york style pizza". this place backs up that claim! it is the best pizza i have tasted since i have been here. i would not be surprised if the dough was imported from the east coast.

I've tried many pizza places here in Hermosa Beach, and I find that Paisano's has the best flavor. I also have eaten their Spaghetti and that is awesome too.

Coming from the east coast, L.A. has pretty bad pizza. Paisanos is definitely an exception to the rule. Try their plain cheese and their Hawaiin. For carbo-loading, try the pizza topped with pasta. Open late, too!

There is no better pie in California, if you are looking for a great authentic NY style, that is. I've sampled tons on trips to NY and never had any I thought any better than Paisano's!!!

I don't normally gorge on pizza, but this is a great local stop after a drunken night at the bars! And if you're nice to the owner, you can usually by-pass the line and get it fast (line is usually out the door at 1 AM!). It's a bit greasy, but so yummy. Ladies, be sure to wash your face after eating this stuff.

Pizza is generally not that good in LA, but this place is fairly comparable to a decent East Coast pizzeria.
They make a few too many pies during the day, so sometimes you don't get a fresh slice at night (too much grease on top when it is heated up). Otherwise, the flavor is pretty good.
