One of the most well-known pizzerias in America, Roberta’s, is coming to the beach. The wood-fired pizza option is popping up outside at Townhouse in Venice, the historic bar hangout right on Windward Avenue.
Roberta’s co-owner Carlo Mirarchi tells Eater that the plan is to run a multi-night pop-up in a sparkling outdoor space at Townhouse through at least October. Hours will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., with a truncated menu that includes four different pizza options, $15 cocktails, and more.
The famed Roberta’s group started in Brooklyn in 2008 and has had a West Coast outlet at Culver City’s Platform project since 2018, though they have roots in LA as a pop-up dating back to 2016. Mirarchi tells Eater that the team first tried a one-off pop-up at Townhouse last weekend, and had such a positive response — not surprising, given the amount of pizza being consumed in Los Angeles at the moment — that they decided to stick it out for at least a few weeks longer.
The Roberta’s x Townhouse pop-up runs Friday through Sunday for all of October. Reservations can be made on Tock.
