After experiencing success with Tarrantino’s Pizza in Pasadena, Dan Tarrantine opened Papalucci’s in 1990 in the heart of Belmont Shore. The checkered tablecloths and open kitchen enhance the casual dining experience, giving the feeling of being at home and eating with familia. For more than 25 years guests have enjoyed such items as the famous Pepe Salad, garlic knots or Grandma Tony's Special Pizza. Everything is made fresh to order and the reasonably-priced menu includes an array of pasta and chicken dishes, including Chicken Cacciatore, Parmesan and Piccata, Carbonara, Lasagna, Ravioli and Baked Ziti - all infused with Grandma's special Marinara.
Michael’s Pizzeria Downtown Promenade
At Michael's Pizzeria, food is heritage. We know that pizza tastes best when it is wood-fired, that mozzarella should always be freshly made, and that meals are enhanced when paired with the perfect Italian wines. From our service to our atmosphere, our flour to our sauce, this is our tradition and one that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Buono’s Authenic Pizzeria
From the pizza fashioned from hand-kneaded dough made fresh daily, to the homemade sauces and sausages, to the fresh mozzarella, and gas-fired brick ovens, eating at Buono's is like dining at a pizzeria in the Old Country. When you order any of their Italian specialties, such as lasagna, spaghetti, eggplant parmigiana, or linguine e vongole, you are tasting a bit of Italy in the heart of Downtown Long Beach!
