Following LA’s new trend of more focused and “authentic” style pizzas taking over franchise pizza joints, Ghisallo will offer up dozens of original pizza recipes that are ever-rotating — including the Spartacus, Funghi & Truffle, Cacio e Pepe, Nightshade, amongst others. Starters in the form of salads, saffron arancini, and meatballs are also available alongside the wood-fired 12-inch individual pizzas.

Ghisallo does have a website, but all it gives us is an opening date — tomorrow, at press time. The address, listed as 1622 Ocean Park Blvd in Santa Monica will open for good on Nov. 17 with hours from Tuesday through Sunday only, 5 PM to 10 PM. Pickup and delivery through Postmates, GrubHub, and DoorDash are available.
