Consistently good!

Whether its a couple of us or a group of 8, Pizzicato is consistently good. Their salads are above average, the pizza is tasty, and the service is efficient and friendly. Reasonable prices, good food, good service. Easy to like!

This is one of my favorite neighborhood escapes. The pizza crust is delicious, and their choice of toppings always work, whatever you pick. Plus, I'm in love with their spinach salad--they use real French-style lardons--DeLish! The ambience is OK--a little loud, but you can opt for outside--nothing special.

Our family loves the thin crust pizzas and salads at Pizzicato. When deciding where to go eat out everyone throws our their suggestions and very often when someone says "Pizzicato?" everyone else agrees. You can order by the slice or whole pie. There are several salads on the menu, all delicious.

Try the Thai Chicken pizza. We also liked the Arugula and candied pecans salad with gorgonzola cheese.

We use Pizzicato for take out and always order a half-baked. Take it home, pop it in a pre-heated oven and enjoy hot, tasty pizza 15 or so minutes later. Prices are on the high side but the quality, order to pick up time and half baked balance out the cost.

As a New Yorker, I have tasted the best. Pizzicato matches the best of them. No need to travel far for tasty pizza.
