The Nashville import (now that's something you didn't expect to hear about a promising pie shop, huh?), serving "Pizza Tradizionale Di Napoli" ("traditional Napoli pies," duh), has taken root on Santa Monica Blvd near Vermont Ave with a whopping 7,000 square feet that comfortably seats 120. The Neapolitan pizza bakery also boasts FOUR 10,000 pound/900 degree wood-burning ovens - which means, despite the massive space, guests won't be waiting too long for their 'za. Open for lunch and dinner, DeSano offers individual and sharing- sized pizzas (like the San Gennaro - sausage, peppadew, garlic, carmelized onions and buffalo mozz), calzones, panuozzo sandwiches (similar to 800 Degrees), antipasta and salads.
