My boyfriend and I went to Buddy s Pizza for the first time last week and it was delicious! We have been searching for an authentic pizza place in Venice, so I am really glad we drove by Buddy s. We ll be back for sure.
This place is awful. Ever since the new owners Luke and Rhonda took over the food is terrible. It used to be good, but now everything tastes like mush - and the restaurant itself is pretty dirty. Not to mention the service - it's terrible! The last time we ate there (which will be the last time ever) we waited 45 minutes for someone to even get us a drink. When our food finally came about an hour after that it was cold and disgusting. I hope the real Buddy comes back and makes the food good again.
It's a pleasant enough place, and a couple of my friends recommended it. I wouldn't. I've had nothing there but the pizza, so other stuff may be very good. And the pizza would be fine except that the crust is weird. It's almost the consistency of a Lorna Doone cookie: crumbly and soft, and soggy in the middle. On the positive side, the draft beer was fresh and cold, and the prices aren't bad. I'll probably go back and try a sub or something someday. But if you like crispy, chewy pizza, you won't like this.
My boyfriend talked about how he had been going to Buddy's pizza since he was young. He couldn't wait to take me there. First time I went, it was wonderful. The pizza was great the service was quick...and the bill was never much!
After that, I don't know what happened. It took 10 minutes before anyone came by to ask us for our drink order. Five minutes later someone comes back with our drinks, but not the same waitress. Then she walks away and tells us our waitress would be over in a minute. After a couple of minutes, we went up to the counters ourselves to give the order...
They told us to sit back down and they'll send our waitress over. The food was pretty good...not as good as the first time. The fact that the waitress almost knocked me out with the pizza...was not the nicest experience.
We tried another 2 times after that to go back and hope it would be better. Totally got worse from there. AWFUL service.
We started ordering out...and it was still ok.
The last time we ordered out...we called the order in. Went to go pick it up and asked us if we were sure we went to the right place? Apparently, they never put the order in. Waited for 15minutes and got back home.
When we opened the pizza box, you couldn't lift the slices of pizza!!! They were paper thing...literally. I don't even know if they cooked the dough all the way. It was seriously not edible...
I don't know what happened to Buddy's pizza but it's disappointing. Maybe it is new owners...who knows...all I know is that I am never eating at buddy's EVER again!
