A tiny place run by recently arrived Italians, everything original as it is supposed to be. During dinner it is rather hectic and cramped and certainly not child friendly, but OH what a pizza! You could just eat the bread (actually, you can!) it is most delicious. John's is across the street and we all know not too bad either... More

This place knows its pizza, you cannot be disappointed here. Good value buzz, west village. The gluten free base is 95% as good as the traditional base - that is rare!

Last year I visited keste 2 times during a 6 days NYC trip. To tell u how good it is. This year I visited again, and although the pizza is still good, it wasn't up to my expectations. A bit soggy. And the mozarella salad was pretty bad. Hard and chewy cheese, probably locally made

New York has the best pizza in the country and this is one of the best in the city. The pizza is mouthwatering and they have many variations/toppings. My favorite is the Margherita but the white pizzas are delicious too. For such a small place the wait is not too bad. The service is fast so you are in and... More

we had lunch here, and came in late in the lunch hour on a workday. The pizza was outstanding -- puffy edge crust with a thin bottom crust, charred edges but not overly so, with a nice chew to the crust. I had a margherita with prosciutto, and my wife had the sausage pizza. Very, very high quality ingredients throughout... More

Never had such good pizza. The four of us inhaled three different variations but the arugula topped one was the best. Super quick service too. Will dream about Napoli pizza at Keste now forever.

We found this restaurant after trying to search for good gluten free restaurants in New York that had stuff both of us could eat - both gluten free and not. This was definitely the best gf pizza I have ever eaten! The crust was delicious and cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the regular crust and also said it was delicious.... More

Great pizza but the service was a little pushy. We were contemplating getting some wine and the server was trying to push us towards a bottle that was more expenseive, really selling it hard. We opted out because we felt pressured and ended up with just water and going to a bar around the corner afterwards. We will go back... More

The reviews of Keste are well deserved. 7 of us dined there last night, sampling 6 different menu selections. Each one was exceptionally good, made with fresh ingredients. Be prepared to wait...no reservations taken...
