Fantastic Pizza and very good service.

I had a small pizza bianca (ricotta and mozzarella cheeses) with the tomato slices topping. It was delicious. The staff was really kind and helpful.

this just always seems to be our first stop whenever we get to NYC. we almost always sit at the bar and have the caesar salad and a italian sausage and onion pizza. salad is served quickly and is quite large (more than enough to share). A small pizza is big enough for two people. NY pizza has a very... More

The tastiest and freshest pizza I've ever eaten, made and cooked to order using a traditional brick bread oven.

We typically eat here around the Christmas holidays, as a family. We have always found that although theydo not take reservations, and there can often be a wait, the food is consistently enjoyable, fresh, and reasonable. The prices are reasonable. If you are are seeking an exceptional culinary experience...this is not your place. If you are looking for a comfortable... More

The food was great. The pizzas just melt in your mouth. How ever, I did find the restaurant slighly costly, but definitely worth it.

The pizza is delicious! You will love it! Get ready to stand in a huge line if you want to come here. I quickly learned this place is very popular. I stood in an hour and a half line outside in 40 degrees. The food was worth it. The ambiance is really cool as well!

My husband liked the Caesar salad. It had a good amount of cheese. I found the dressing a bit mayonnaise tasting. I loved the fresh Basil on the pizza. I enjoyed the crust too. I liked the ice cream sandwich. Nice stained glass windows.

This building was used previously for religious services and the stained glass and architecture are stunning. Oh the food.. I think its a grade above standard. Not exceptional but not bad. I would at least see it once. Ask for upstairs table if possible by the stained glass windows.

Staying in Midtown

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.
