I had an artichoke pizza and a delicious desert. Pizza came with a crisp and thin bottom and herbs, spices and extra cheese to the side. Yes, there is a price point. But with the staff being exceptionally friendly it is worth the money.

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.
