Los Angeles, CA
800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria opened to rave reviews and long lines in the UCLA neighborhood of Westwood, CA. With two ovens that cook pizzas in 90 seconds, however, the line moves quickly.
Large half moon windows bring in light and the view, Inside this "chuch of pizza," guests line up along a wood entry leading to white marble counters, backed with wood pizza peels, vintage and colorful pizza boxes, and white subway tile that runs the length of the room. The pizza travels quickly down the line of simple to gourmet ingredients, each pie made to order just before popping into the white tiled oven with large shiny copper hoods.
The dining room features custom millwork with dark wood arches, plinthes, and an oversized crown molding running along a wall of reclaimed church pews. Wood topped tables and vintage x-back bistro chairs provide ample seating. Overhead, an arched ceiling incorporates acoustical paneling behind pressed-tin style ceiling tiles. Cork wall covering adds additional acoustical properties making dining more pleasant.
