Location can't be beat nor can the ambiance. The pizza was disappointing. Flavorless cheese and overpowering basil. Crust, which I always look forward to, was good. Service was a bit slow considering half the restaurant was empty. We went for lunch on a Tuesday so I am not sure what it would be like after the theater or on a... More

I am a pizza lower, and I can say I had the best pizza I ever had here. Being in Time Square the location is very central, and the atmosphere is very unique as it is inside a cathedral. Everything is great! Just expect to wait for 20 to 25 minutes as this place is busy!

We went here on the recommendation from a tour guide. Inside, this place is gorgeous, but not a great set up for a restaurant. You end up sitting very close to your neighbors. Also, the pizza was good, but not great. We enjoyed it, but it was a little expensive for how much we got. Not my favorite, but glad... More

Who would have thought that behind a very small entrance there would be such a gem of fun! Visited with my goddaughter and brother and parents and I have to say I was stunned. I have eaten in a lot of what would be considered as the finest restaurants in the world, but the hubbub and general madness of this... More

If you love pizza, then this is your place to eat. I highly suggest making reservations, but if you don't, the wait is so worth it. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent!! It's an old historic church they turned into a restaurant. Beautiful ceiling inside. A small pizza was plenty for 2 people. Very busy and... More

Nearly every time our family is in NYC, we love to stop here for some great pizza. Fun atmosphere, great location and really good pizza. Located in Times Square area. Usually busy, so get here early if you want a seat, otherwise be prepared to wait! But the wait is worth it!

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
