I have been dinning at La Brasca's since the mid 1970s. this place is 50 years old now in the same location. great selection of toppings with reasonable cost. A family owned place that has the best pizza in town.

Went to La Brasca's the other evening and had one of the best pizzas I've had in a long time. Just ordered ham, mushroom and cheese. Boy, was there plenty of cheese. Ordered a cheese salad, but quickly learned to ask for the cheese on the side. Have been back once a week ever since rediscovering La Brasca's. Excellent service,... More

I, like most patrons, read the reviews of a restaurant before I visit or order out. La Brasca's being no different. As such, they came with positive and negative reviews, most of which trending toward the positive side. My wife and I ordered with an open mind and hoped the negative reviews came from customers simply of a less than... More

I cannot say enough about this pizza. I've eaten their pizza a couple of times, and eaten in the pizzeria once. The service, the staff and the food are all excellent. This is far and away the BEST pizza I have ever had. Well worth any drive to get to.

The mini pizza at LaBrasca's is my favorite pizza...and it maybe better than ever. Generously cheesy, a little crusty, and it reheats beautifully in a toaster oven; in fact, it might be even better reheated. My only complaint is the salad....I was a faithful cheese salad customer, but the last few times, the lettuce was terrible, limp, almost bad. Which... More

The staff was friendly and nice. I was glad to see that they have recovered from the floods. The pizza had no taste. It was strange. We ordered a sausage, pepperoni with extra cheese. There didn't seem to be any real cheese, it had no stretch/string to it. I could taste the sauce. The crust was pre-made frozen. My wife... More

A Columbia Landmark. I've been eating here for over 40 years and have enjoyed every meal. The pizza is the best you will ever have, with sauce and ingredients spread all the way to the edge of the pie. The cheese salads are a great starter and big enough for two. The décor hasn't changed much since they opened and... More

I have been coming here since 1974 with my husband. It was then and is now the best pizza I've. ever had. Nothing fancy, just good pizza loaded with toppings! And, yes the place would appear run down- it hasn't been renovated since before 1974-and neither have the prices very much either

La Brasca's is, hands down, the worst meal my wife and I have ever had at a restaurant. Extremely disappointed. The restaurant is old, dark, run-down, dirty, and smells a bit like an old bowling alley. We ordered a large pizza with four toppings. When the pizza arrived, we both just looked at each other. I am pretty sure the... More

La Brasca's is a Columbia establishment that has been serving pizza in the same location for over 45 years. They offer a fantastic thin crust pizza that is impossible to beat anywhere else in town. La Brasca's building isn't much to see from the outside (unless you know its there you drive right past it) and inside the atmosphere reminds... More
