No matter what we order, the food is always wonderful and tasty. We usually get a pizza or two and a couple of salads...maybe a sandwich. It's expensive but worth it!

One of my favorite places that still exist in P.V. When ever in or passing through LA, I always make a stop at the Appetizer. My wife and kids loved it too.

Whenever I get back to the PV Peninsula, I love to get a sandwich or two at the Appetizer!! A PV tradition since the 70's it is a favorite locals spot. Quick parking tip, park in back and take the stairs to their back door entrance. There hot sandwiches are great (Roast Beef & Meatball are my favorites) as well... More

The Appetizer has been here for years and is a great place to grab a sandwich, a pizza or some Italian food. Love the antipasto salad!

They have an extensive selection of sandwiches and pasta dishes. I got the Torpedo sub sandwich. Loved it. Everything was fresh. Lots of salads & items under the glass counter that looked good.

Our friends love going to The Appetizer for dinner. We joined them this past year. We found the food good but not outstanding; a bit on the expensive side for what it is. That being said, the pizza is some of the best you can find in the area. Staff are down to earth.

In the area and my sales rep needed a sandwich tray for a lunch presentation. The staff was very helpful and the tray of sandwiches looked great. The staff loved the sandwiches so it was a positive experience. Minus one star for not including plastic knives for the condiments. Also, you'll need your own plates.
