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!
The Red Leprechaun
Located along Anaheim Street in the eclectic Zaferia District, The Red Leprechaun embraces the Emerald Isle by offering traditional Irish fare with a contemporary twist. Great food, live entertainment, and an ice-cold pint are what make this urban pub a dining destination. The menu is best described as "New Celtic" and is designed to pair well with the selection of California wines and local handcrafted beers offered.
