Really enjoyed the Arugula salad ($8.95) with goat cheese and special eggplant pizza ($16). Toppings were expensive ($2.95 each). A small-ish menu, semi-romantic environment. Really enjoyed the cute nature of this place. Would definitely come again!

This place is so good, consistently. Great service. The location isn't the best; it's right across from Port Authority on a seedy part of Ninth Avenue. But once you're inside, it's cozy and has a nice atmosphere - think old school Italian joint. It's never that crowded and they do deliver...whatever strikes your fancy. Reasonable prices too. It would be... More

Capizzi is well worth the walk off the regular path. This is a local pizzeria . The service was the best. The food was very good. Try the rice balls, wonderful. The pizza is some of the best that I have had, a coal fired over gives a Crust that is New York all the way. Take the time, walk... More

This little place is tucked away behind Port Authority, you really have to look for it. It is a pretty small place, but they move you in and out pretty quickly, so don't despair if it is full when you arrive. Everyone was eating pizza, and I followed suit. The thick cut pepperoni was awesome and the portion was a... More

A little bit of Italy in Manhattan. We visited as this restaurant was rated highly on TA, not disappointed, great friendly staff and excellent pizza in a buzzy environment.

Saw a matinee on Broadway and wanted some classic NY pizza for dinner with the family. Looking for this place based on reviews and walked right past it; so many restaurants on this street. Small place; friendly owner/manager, good pizza, great toppings. Definitely recommend.

Excellent brick oven pizza! Lots of fresh basil! Quaint atmosphere--just 11 tables, wine bottles along the wall, sun-dried tomatoes hanging from the ceiling. Very nice stop for lunch.

Im sad I discover this place during my last time in NY, if the place is full there is a simple reason, the food is good and the owner/server is very nice and serviable, you can taste the quality of the product

This Hell's Kitchen area restaurant is small--just a few tables. But we had no trouble getting a table. The hand-tossed pizza is cooked in a wood-fired brick oven. The pizza was excellent; the service was great.

This place was just by our hotel and we wished that we had found it earlier in our New York holiday. It is not the cheapest but the pizza is fresh and tasty and my daughter said it was the best she had ever had (and there have been many....). Desserts were great too.
