Cuisine: Pizza

Speak Cheezy

No matter how you slice it, Speak Cheezy is the pizza OG. Its humble beginnings included catering coupled with a roaming van equipped with a pizza oven. Then, voila, they opened a brick-and-mortar storefront on 4th Street in Belmont Heights where their legendary sourdough pizzas are naturally leavened for up to five days and the fresh mozzarella is pulled in-house.

Buono’s Authenic Pizzeria

Buono’s Authentic Pizzeria is locally owned for more than half a century with two Long Beach locations on Willow Avenue and on Ocean Blvd. in Downtown Long Beach.  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 our 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!
