Restaurant Los Angeles, CA California + Fine

Washington File/ Food Culture USA/ United States Embassy
Studio City Sun- May 14th

"(Chef LaDou) ...has developed a loyal following for his fine eclectic mix of Italian/California cuisine incorporating a revolving menu of unique designer pizzas, outrageous garlic rolls, pasta, sandwiches, salmon, chicken and leg of lamb."
Food Arts Magazine 2003

"You've tasted Wolfgang Puck's and CPK's "California" pizzas. Well Ed LaDou is the guy who taught them how to make it... lucky Studio City residents!"
Gayots LA Restaurants 2002

"Still one of the top pizza places in Southern California."
Sunset Magazine 2001

"...It's been the arrival of the famed Caioti Pizza Cafe that's really boosted (Tununga Avenue's) trend-o-meter rating: Moms-to-be flock here for the "The Salad." Rumored to induce labor, while others make the trek for offbeat pie toppings."
Los Angeles Magazine 2001

"....Ed LaDou...moved Caioti from Laurel Canyon to Tujunga Village. Fortunately LaDou brought along.... an array of other dishes that will prove to the uninitiated that pizza is not all he masters."
Los Angeles Magazine 1999

"The wonderful Caioti Pizza Cafe is hidden among the tiny storefronts of Tujunga Village... on many levels I enjoy dining here as much as at Spago. This is one lucky neighborhood."
Los Angeles Times 1999

"In the way that New Yorkers journey to John's Pizzeria for a taste of the real thing, Angelenos go to Caioti to eat at the source."

The Best Of Los Angeles- Gault Milleau 1993

"The Perfect Pizza"
Bon Appetit Magazine 1991

"For some of the best pizza in L.A., not to mention terrific pastas and grilled dishes, Ed LaDou's Caioti is the place to go."
Bon Appetit magazine 1990

"Caioti, the latest project of Ed LaDu, serves absolutely wonderful California cooking- new wave pizzas, pastas, salads and grilled stuff."
California Magazine 1987
Since opening in 1987 Caioti has been featured in over two hundred publications.

"The phrase "California Pizza" has become part of our everyday language. Barbecued chicken as a topping now somehow makes sense. And it was Ed LaDou, aka "the prince of pizza" who started it all."
