Sadly, it appears that Allora Pizza has quit its location at 829 N. Douglas St. in El Seguno after less than a year. Allora took over the space from short-lived Il Romanista, which made a splash claiming to be LA’s first Roman-style pizza al taglio. Allora was the third pizza joint in a row to inhabit the unlucky address.
A new pizza restaurant has moved into the space most recently occupied by Il Romanista. You may recall that Il Romanista made headlines as LA’s first Roman-style pizza al taglio, or pizza baked in large rectangular pans and cut with scissors. Don’t know what happened, but the space is now Allora Pizza. Allora boasts a pizzaiolo with 20 years experience in the “finest restaurants in Italy and the US”. This is the third pizza restaurant to occupy this location at 829 N. Douglas St. We wish Allora the best of luck.
It looks like a new contender is vying for the attention of hungry lunchtime workers in the busy food scene of El Segundo. Il Romanista recently opened in the space at 829 N. Douglas St. that used to be the home of ZPizza. The new restaurant claims that it is the first to bring Roman-style pizza al taglio to Los Angeles. Pizza al taglio is baked in large rectangular pans and cut into squares with large scissors that you can see in the photo below. Read more about them and check out their menu here.
