ECHO PARK — Pizza Buona, which has served up pizza from the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Alvarado Street for more than 50 years, is searching for a new location that will probably take it out of the neighborhood.
Israel Palacios, whose family owns the pizzeria, said a rent hike is prompting the move but declined to provide any more information at this time.
The search for a new home comes only a few years after Pizza Buona reopened after a months-long renovation to repair the damage from a car that crashed into the dining room and renovations required following an ADA lawsuit. The restaurant has been in operation since 1959.
Where will Pizza Buona relocate? Will its customers follow? What about those garlic breadsticks? Stay tuned.
