Caioti Pizza Café Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: You’ve tasted the California pizza of Wolfgang Puck and the pies at California Pizza Kitchen. Well, Ed LaDou was the guy who taught them how to make it. After years of owning a terrific little pizza place in Laurel Canyon, LaDou opened this location in Studio City. The founder passed away, but Caioti Pizza Café continues to serve classic Italian and New York pizzas.

About the food: LaDou’s true legacy, however, lives on with designer pizzas such as the barbecued chicken (he claims to have invented the concept); ground bison and caramelized onions; and sunchoke and apple wood-smoked bacon. If your baby is overdue, try LaDou’s so-called “maternity” salad of romaine, watercress, Gorgonzola and walnuts tossed in a balsamic-basil vinaigrette; it’s rumored to induce labor. Sandwiches and pastas are also on offer.
