Best pizza

Extremely good pizza and very affordable. I ate a slice of pepperoni pizza and a slice of mozzarella cheese pizza. Both where very good tasting and well made. Much better than the best I've tried home in Sweden. If you're at the MET museum I would recommend the 10 minute walk to this restaurant... read more

We went to Don Filippo after a long visit to Metropolitan Museum, and though we were late to eat, we had no problem. Slices of pizza are amazing and cheap, and we also ordered pasta, great too!

Had a pizza lunch. They technically have table service, but it was too hectic during the lunch rush to notice. Once we sat down and started eating, all was well. Prices were appropriate.

While walking down Lexington Ave. my son stopped us and said this place smells great. So we stopped inside, took one look at the pizza at the counter and were sold. We took a table in the back along with a few others. I had a square of the thin pepperoni which was crispy with a few slices of fresh... More

We have stopped here for a dinner after Metropolitan museum visit. We had two types of veal, beer and wine. All of them were tasty. Even the pizzas they brought as appetizers.

Had a great experience here with a high school choir group (15) after touring the MMOA. Staff was very friendly, pizza (BBQ chicken was awesome) and cheesecake was very good, service was wonderful. Great typical NYC experience!

This tiny place in the upper east side is a must if you need to eat something good and cheap. Suggestion: just try plain pizza, it's amazing

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
