While Roca’s downtown location may be convenient for shoppers or anyone who got out of the latest Avengers movie hungry, the pizza here is simply not good. (Which is a shame and potentially expected, since the place is run by a co-founder of California Pizza Kitchen.) At this Roman-style slice shop, the pizza tastes noticeably like it’s been sitting out all day. Stale, medium-thick crust hurts your teeth, and despite some eye-catching varieties like Thai chicken and amatriciana with guanciale, each slice tastes exactly the same: like nothing. If you’re craving pizza in the Palisades, just go to Flour Cafe, a far superior slice shop only a few blocks away.
