More pizza to know, always
Fresh off the heels of the Valley’s new location of Gino’s East comes Patxi’s, a Bay Area export that also does a variety of Chicago-style deep dish pizzas. This new restaurant sits at L.A.

Figueroa St. The company also has locations across Seattle, San Diego, Denver and beyond, and a LA-area second location is coming to Porter Ranch next year.
