HAD A GREAT MEAL AT D'AMORES IN CAMARILLO TONIGHT. JOE D'AMORE MAKES YOU FEEL SO WELCOME AND WAS VERY ATTENTIVE THROUGHOUT. THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HAPPY WHICH IS'NT THE CASE WITH A LOT OF RESTAURANT STAFF ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG. I HAVE EATEN IN MANY MANY ITALIAN RESTAURANTS AND CAN HONESTLY SAY IT WILL ONLY BE D'AMORES FROM NOW ON. THE PIZZA WAS OUTSTANDING AND THE LASAGNA WAS SUPERB. THE PORTION SIZES WERE A WELCOME SURPRISE.I HAVE READ THE OTHER REVIEWS WHICH SAID IT IS EXPENSIVE, YES IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN DOMINOES OR PIZZA HUT ITS ALSO 10 TIMES BETTER!!!!!!!!!!GOOD FOOD DESERVES A GOOD REVIEW. WE WILL BE BACK VERY SOON. (D'AMORES WAS RECOMMENDED TO US BY A NEIGHBOR AND SATISFIED CUSTOMER.)

Pros: quick service and very friendly staff

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

In an ocean of same tasting pizza, there's an island called D'Amore's. What other restaurant brings in actual Boston water? The owner took me back into the kitchen and showed me the freaking water? I mean, the attention to detail here shows! The pizza is incredible. The crust is thin, crisp without being dry. Freaking perfect! I've heard about D'Amore's from friends for years. Today, I stopped at the Tarzana store to try a slice. Tonight, I picked up a jumbo pie at their Canoga Park restaurant. My diet is screwed. While I was waiting for my pizza, I was watching a woman eating a plate of baked ziti. Damn!! I'm gonna be back to try it!!

Pros: Authentic Boston style Pizza that satisfied my authentic Brooklyn taste buds.

Cons: There should be a D'Amores in every neighborhood.

Thanks for such a great experience! I have been eating this pizza for years and I never wrote a review. I saw the one where the guy said all this stuff about it being the worst pizza ever! He obviously must be a freak or maybe he works for for Dominos. This pizza is amazing!! How can anyone say anything but WOW! about this pizza. I like how they re-did the place too. This is their original "hole in the wall" and it's fun to see the pictures on the walls. I feel like I am in New York. Hope these guys stay in business forever. And I love that it's low fat! How is that possible? Something about the olive oil burns off when it cooks? Anyway, everyone should try D'Amore's at least once. And if for some reason, it isn't everything all the other reviews say it is there's always the smart people who realize no one's perfect and you can give 'em one more shot. Or you can just be a creep and just write bad reviews and show how miserable you are.

Pros: BEST PIZZA

Cons: could be in a better location. The neighborhood is getting run down

.

Everything about D'Amore's Pizza is absolutely atrocious, and I strongly suggest that you stay away. The food is horrificly bad and exorbitantly expensive, the kiss of death in the restaurant business; the service is dismal; the wait and cook staff are inattentive and indignant; and there is zero atmosphere. The owner, Joe D'Amore, knows nothing about how to successfully run a restaurant, and it shows.

You have been warned. Your hard-earned money is better spent elsewhere. This food is so terrible that i wouldn't even give it to my dog...

Cons: The food is terrible; the service is awful; and it is extremely expensive.

The oldest pizzaria in Boston is Regina's which opened in 1926. It's located in the North End of Boston which is the Italian section of the city. D'Amore's pizza connection does it right. It's almost identical to the pizza Regina's been serving for three generations. Depending on your own preferences, you may or may not think this is great pizza, but if you want to taste how it's done in Boston's North End - this is the place.

Cons: A little pricey for a fast food joint.

I have had quite a few pizzas in my time. This was by far the worst pizza I have ever had. The advertisement said "Best pizza in the nation." I should suu for false advertising. It was dry, rubbery, and burnt. I called and complained and the customer service said there was nothing they could do about it. I was angry!!! If I had to eat this pizza or die, then I will be digging my own grave.

Pros: nothing

Cons: everything

The pizza is great! It is far superior to Abbott's pizza, in my opinion. I would say that it is more on par with Village Pizzeria on Larchmont, except that D' Amores has better crust and sauce. It has a lot of flavor and is very addicting. If they undercook it, which they do sometimes, it is not quite as good.

Their customer service needs serious work. You can stand at the counter for several minutes without so much as an acknowledgement. Not only that, but if they tell you it will be ready in twenty minutes, that means more like thirty to thirty five minutes. Not once has my pizza been ready when they said it would be ready. In fact, one time I showed up after twenty minutes to pick up my pizza and had to wait an additional twenty minutes, AND it was undercooked.

Bottom line: Pizza is great. Service is not so great.

I haven't been to D'Amores in a few months and finally went there for lunch today. I have to say that the pizza has changed. I myself am from NY and yearn that real NY pizza - which is why I go there a lot. But today, I have to say I am a bit disappointed with everything. I had the lunch special (slice, salad and soda for $5.95) The salad was soggy (went from fresh salad mix to cheap iceberg lettuce), the pizza tasted like it was any other pizza from Ameci's or Domino's. It didn't taste like they import the water or other ingredients which made their pizza tasting so good and different from all other pizza in LA.
If Joe D'Amore is reading this, please do a taste testing on some of your locations, esp the Winnetka ones because it is not worth the price we pay for this pizza.

Pros: Dressing for Salad and garlic bread was great!

Cons: Salad was soggy, pizza didn't taste like East Coast Pizza & it's pricey

.

I just came back from lunch at "D'Amores" aka Pizza Connection. I went with a group of co-workers during our lunch break and went to the Winnetka location. We ordered a "family size" thin-crust Combination and a family bowl of Antipasto salad. The cheese on the pizza was rubber-y and was a little on the taste-less side. The price was quite expensive because we also ordered drinks and the total came out to $14/person. Granted, we're not from the east coast, and if this pizza is the closest to tasting like the pizza there; you guys don't know what pizza tastes like that. I probably would have been happier with grabing Little Caesars then there. If you guys find anything else that tastes more "authentic" send me the address. I was majorly dissapointed by D'Amores.

Cons: Food, Price, Ambience

Finally I found a westcoast pizza place that has great pie. It reminds me of my childhood after Celt's game eating pizza in the Norht End. Regina ,The European, Francesco's.
Thank's D'Amores

You have to try this pizza and their antipasto is outstanding. The staff at the CPrk location are super freindly, Nancy treats you like family! The D'Amore's family take their family recipe seriously. If you have never tried this pizza, you are mssing out. Everyone loves D'Amore's!

I Understand that there are some misunderstandings about D'Amores. Competition, misguided opinions who knows? The truth lies in the fact that "the proof is in the pudding" or should I say the Pizza etc. I have been in Los Angeles for over 35 years (from Back East too) and have eaten pizza in many establishments and highly rated Italian Rest. Many of the dishes at D'Amores will challenge them. Regarding Pizza. You cannot touch D'Amores PERIOD. Check the Food and Ingredients. I hope you do not rate just on unconfirmed critisims from unknown sources. When I am asked by friends who has the best Pizza in LA its D'Amores and the 2nd best is Abbott's. Now, I have my business both in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and I am excited that D'Amores is there too.

Thank You

Just felt the need to put in a review. I moved to the West coast from NJ and had the worst time finding a good pizza place, just when I was about to give up my search I found D' Amores. The pizza is outstanding. Now that I moved back to NJ, I will miss it! Enjoy and eat a slice for me!

Finally, a pizza just like I remember! My husband and I are from back east and when we moved here we were so disappointed in the pizza in California. The crust was soggy, tastless and greasy! I heard about D'Amore's on a local radio station and they were talking about "the guy who ships the water from Boston" to make his dough. I was doubtful but desperate, all set up for yet another dissapointment by some so called "east coast pizza". To my great surprise the pizza was just like I remembered it from the east coast. And the bonus...it's healthy?! Now you definately have got me! Since then, I've seen it listed as a weight watchers point meal and also it is getting the ratings of #1 that it so richly deserves. I tell everybody about this pizza!

I just read the reviews on this pizza and anyone who gave it less than a 10 has to be working for the competition. As if there was any! The crust is perfectly crispyand thin the way a pizza should be-not to mention less carbs. i can see why the entertainment industry uses D'amores for their movie shoots,etc. That's where I discoverd it. if you want tons of toppings instead of a perfect balance of flavors- go to Dominos-be my guest. You get what you pay for. You try shipping the water 3,000 miles.

It is about the best pizza you can get out here. The only pizza that I know of that is better is Sams, but that is in Dobbs Ferry, New York. I haven't tried the one in Thousand Oaks, I hope it lives up to my expectations. The one improvement I might suggest is that they use fresh sausage and not the frozen commisaried kind. That would make for a truly great pizza, like Sams in Dobbs Ferry N.Y.

You know, I actually read the reviews on the internet first, saying it was one of the top Pizza restaurants in Los Angeles, and I've lived down the street from it for four years. I have never been so disappointed by pizza as I have with Pizza Connection. I expected a "gigantic" large pizza just loaded with toppings, all I got was a 14" pizza, that was slightly thicker than the paper plate I ate it on. Overall, I was really mad at myself. I could've gotten four great Little Caeser's Pizza's, but instead I got the skimpy shaft

The folks that own and work here are very nice! Sure they don't have an elegant dining room but their charm and food more than make up for that! There are cases of water shipped from Boston, MA to make the pizza and pasta from so it does taste much better than the competitions! This not another sterilized chain restaurant! They care about what they do here!!

Indeed! REMARKABLY Skimpy Skimpy Skimpy on the topics. I was quite surprised, as i know the owner, what a wonderful guy. And yet on one particular sunday when he may or not have been managing, i bragged about the pizza to my brother, only to have it arrive 70-80minutes later than ordered!! VERY SKIMPY on the Topics. A family large will set you back 30 Bucks!! Nice owner, but this is rip off of the century. D'Amore should offer a microscope with each pizza 2 find the toppings.
